“Marlene Ciatti is very creative, professional and enthusiastic; a joy to work with. She beautifies a space while paying close attention to her client’s needs and lifestyle.

I not only highly recommend her, but have planned the next several projects over the next few years with her.” - Laurie B., Sonoma, CA

“Consistently impressed with Marlene Ciatti’s quick and spot on design solutions it was without hesitation when a home remodel project presented itself that I bring in her expertise. She listens attentively on the design and budgetary needs expressed, and then formulates options pulling away from the norm and safety of a standard remodel to let’s try something different. The new perspective elevated our property to the ahh inspired reactions it received from realtors and potential buyers. She has an amazing eye for color and creating warmth and interest in any room she designs. Marlene works quickly and enthusiastically always with attention to detail. Her vast industry knowledge crosses design platforms with modern, traditional, rustic, industrial, and combined eclectic.” - Denise D., Sonoma, Ca
“I’ve worked with Marlene since 2004. Her intuitive design skills are keen, her graciousness in steering me away from self-created design bedlam is flawless. My dad’s sound advice: “honey, do what you do well, leave what you don’t know to the pro’s”, has paid off in spades with Marlene at the helm.” - Kathy B., Sonoma, CA.
“Ciatti Design worked with me to choose paint colors and furnish a large newly constructed home. Marlene is extremely talented with color selection. She handled the challenge of selecting many different colors that ultimately all needed to work together. The end result is beautiful! Her furniture choices and fabrics have proved to be very beautiful, comfortable, and versatile all over the house. I totally relied on her creative ability to put together a beautiful plan for our interiors, which we have enjoyed ever since. Marlene is easy to work with, and organized. I would recommend Ciatti Design for projects big and small.” - Patsy W., Sonoma CA.
“My wife and I did major remodeling that included an expansion of our rear deck. We are on a deep water lot facing west, so the sun – both directly and reflecting off the water – can make the deck unusable during the summer. Marlene helped us find a real solution…the result was a perfectly usable deck, even on the sunniest days. Marlene’s support and follow up was all we could have asked for, and then some.” - Jack And Barbara C., Larkspur, CA

“Ms. Ciatti has an amazing sense of color and has been excellent at nudging me outside of my comfort zone. Her suggestions have always been both creative and unusual. Also, her subcontractor suggestions have consistently performed professionally and shown superb workmanship. I would highly recommend Ms. Ciatti.” - Stephanie S., Sonoma
“Marlene worked with me to choose wonderful, warm colors for our interior walls which really enhance the artistic style of our newly remodeled craftsman style house. Marlene was great! She also moved area rugs and arranged our furniture to make our living space cozier and more inviting. I love our living area now and we actually use it rather than use it as a pass through.” - Liza Z., Sonoma, CA
