When navigating the day-to-day desires/needs of life, you occasionally come across someone who is working in a profession they were born to be in. Such is the scenario of Emilie Munroe, AMAZING interior designer. I met Emilie, quite by accident; in fact, I was referred to her by one of her professional colleagues being told that she was fabulous. Emilie did a beautiful job, creating an urban chic, sophisticated apartment using all the information we had discussed in a pre-project conversation. She was a joy to work with, energetic, enthusiastic, and creative from beginning to end, inclusive of furnishings, paint selection, carpeting, wallpaper, art, and accessories. The contractors she uses in the project are also professional, respectful, and excellent at their respective crafts. Ours was a good size project; there may have been stressful moments, but I knew of none of them. Emilie manages all of the details with finesse and grace. She is truly the ultimate professional, who reads her clients, listens, and delivers a flawless space created to thrill.

Emilie Munroe is a creative visionary with positive energy and enthusiasm to match! Her interiors are created thoughtfully but the final result looks effortless. Texture, color, mixtures of materials and art all come together to help her clients authentically express themselves, while also injecting fresh new ideas and expressions. I have worked with Emilie on several projects and her enthusiasm is absolutely infectious, matched by her professional follow-through and organization.

I used Emilie for two different projects and LOVED both experiences. The first was to help furnish and design our living room, dining room and family room. It was my first time using a designer and I wasn't sure we needed it, but Emilie came highly recommended by friends and I'm so glad we took the plunge. The process was so smooth and so fun - she totally got our style and need for durable family-friendly materials, stuck within our budget and came up with creative solutions, all while working efficiently and around our schedule. The end result was a million times better than what I would have done on my own with a Room and Board catalogue. When we bought a new house, we now had all the furniture but needed some advice on renovations. Emilie stepped in originally just to help with tile selection and ended up basically managing the whole project, including creating detailed elevations, interfacing with the contractor and subs, and recommending/coordinating/installing lights, fixtures, paint, carpet, flooring while I was super pregnant and then having my second kid. A total lifesaver and a wonderful person. Our house turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I can't recommend Emilie more highly!!

Emilie is a consummate designer. She has a sharp design sense that combines a variety of 'ingredients' to create an aesthetic that is fresh, alive and comforting. It's been a pleasure and privilege to work with and witness such a talent. She goes out of her way to get things just right and takes great care of her clients.

We used Emilie to help us figure out what to do with our new house after we bought it in the spring of 2013 -- it needed a major update in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as a refresh in the other rooms. She helped us figure out layout and materials, assisted with overseeing the construction, and also helped us with furniture and accessory decisions in several rooms. She even spent one evening hanging up alphabet letters to decorate our playroom. We were so pleased to work with her -- her enthusiasm, professionalism, and creativity made the process fun and easy. We hope to work with her again in the future!

We worked with Emilie and Studio Munroe to do design and furniture plans for our kitchen, living room and foyer in spring of 2015. And, we recently worked with them again to design a basement remodel - from reviewing architect plans to the full design plan for the space. They are a pleasure to work with - creative, fun, and resourceful. Emilie has a great eye for design, and is great at listening and understanding a client's needs. She is professional, organized, and responsive. Highly recommend her, and would hire Studio Munroe again for any future projects.

Having completed a number of construction projects with Emilie, I can say that Studio Munroe has situated itself in the very top handful of design firms in San Francisco. From a contractor's perspective, professionalism, schedule, and a respectful attentiveness to budget are always things we dream of in a designer. With Emilie and Studio Munroe, all three are found in spades. I look forward to the next time I get to work with them. You can expect beautiful design, quick decisions, and a clean, clear, concise direction during construction.

I've worked with Emilie on a number of projects, and she is by far one of my favorite clients! Each and every project she brings to me is so well planned and organized. Her designs are fresh, original, and timeless. I work with her solely on window treatments, but her beautiful finished photos showcase her true design instinct, and her attention to every little detail. She's a great people person, and in collaborating with her, I know she works hard for each and every one of her clients. Whether Emilie is requesting additional samples for a client, or multiple quotes to meet a budget, or an unorthodox customization, I know that she does so with her client's best interests in mind. I would highly recommend Emilie to anyone looking for a true professional design consultation!
