"Andra Martens is the consummate creative professional. She blends her incredible problem-solving skills, with her sharp attention to budget and finances, with an incredible timeless aesthetic. She is reliable and dependable and truly a superb listener. I can not recommend her highly enough. She is not afraid to go to bat for her clients to make sure quality is ensured.

Effective & Fun
"We had the pleasure of working with Andra Martens Design Studio on the design of our cottage and bunkhouse. My husband and I had spent a few years working on different ideas until we landed on a floor layout we liked. This is when we contacted Andra to take our layout and bring it to life. Andra produced floor plans, elevations and 3D models to show us how things would look. We were able to work side by side and by screen sharing to make adjustments to the plan together. This type of close collaboration made the entire design process so much more effective and fun. Andra also produced all our cabinetry drawings, lighting and electrical drawings, door schedules, finish and furniture plans. Everything was done very quickly and with respect to our budget. She’s easy-going and very detailed and I would definitely hire Andra again to help us on any future projects."

"My husband and I hired Andra to complete our boathouse. We had seen her work at a family members Cottage and were extremely impressed with it. From start to finish Andra was amazing to work with. She kept us on our timeline and kept the pressure on the contractors to keep their timeline as well. She and Kyla were incredibly helpful with both decor and purchasing and knowledgable in all aspects of the planning process. Working with the two of them was very easy and we will certainly be hiring them for future projects."

Speed, Professionalism & Respect for Budget
"Like a typical guy I thought the house looked great, that was until Andra and her team worked their magic. Now the house looks spectacular! Better yet, the rooms we renovated are not only beautiful but are totally apropos for their use. Great attention to every design detail. Great attention to look, feel, décor and continuity. My wife can express better our love of their style. I was impressed with their speed, professionalism and respect for the budget. Plus, they made it fun; that never happens. Well done ladies! Superb."

Degree in Interior Architecture; Amazing with Floor Plans
"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Andra on multiple projects! She has an innate creativeness which transcends through her work and recommendations. Additionally, she is very detail oriented, budget focused and deadline observant. She expanded my own design knowledge which allowed me to go outside my comfort zone and take some risks which was very rewarding. I worked with her on 2 of my homes in the dining room, master bedroom/bath, living room and kitchen. Addtionally, she helped me with my outdoor patio area which was stunning! A major bonus is that she has her degree in interior architecture so she is amazing with floor plans/measurements/remodels. Most of all, Andra is a lovely person so I throughly enjoyed spending time with her on my projects!!"

Stylish & High Quality
"Andra helped us with two projects, and we would absolutely hire her again. We first worked together when we were rebuilding our home. Andra helped us figure out many of the architectural details for our new home, as well as some of the fixtures. Several years later, we hired Andra to help us refurnish our master bedroom. With both projects, Andra kept our budgetary constraints in mind while finding items that were stylish and of high quality. Not only does Andra have a great artistic eye, but she is a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend Andra highly enough!"

"Andra Martens worked with my young daughter to redecorate her bedroom. Together, they found creative ways to make a small room seem larger, brighter, and more organized. Andra designed bookshelves, a lighting plan, and selected furniture. She maximized the use of space, provided separate sleep and study areas, and thoughtfully designed shelving and closets. She worked closely with us on the budget and provided timely updates on progress and costs. She also helped us identify companies to complete any needed construction. I was thrilled with the result of Andra’s designs, but most importantly my daughter loved the new look and feel of her bedroom."

"I used Andra Martens to design and oversee my kitchen renovation. She was extremely easy to deal with and very professional. She was very good at explaining the whole process in a step by step fashion. She was excellent at suggesting all the finishing details. I would highly recommend Andra Martens Design Studio for another project."
