Happy New Year, dearest MAS clients and supporters!

Thank you to our amazing clients for submitting your thoughtful reviews that won us the Best of Houzz again last year! Creating beauty with you is what makes what we do so meaningful. We’re thrilled to have won our tenth “Best of Houzz” award on Houzz – the leading platform for home remodeling and design.

Best of Houzz is an exclusive program which recognizes 3% of the more than 2.7 million home and interior professionals on the Houzz platform. We’re honored to be in such good company!

It feels especially meaningful in our 10th year of business together to receive yet another Best of Houzz award for Customer Service. Our goal is to not only create works of sanctuary and inspiration but also to create a positive, stress-free and fun experience for our clients. And we’ll certainly throw in a laugh or two! Bring it, 2024!


Reveal! “Raw and Refined”: MAS Design’s latest Tiburon project.

Our challenge was to transform a basic white, 80’s inspired Tiburon home to a grounded, intentional, artful, and curated sanctuary – tailored to the warmth and uniqueness of our young and worldly clients. (All without competing with their breathtaking Bay views!) We believe in the power of serene spaces that quietly captivate through soulful texture, sculptural form, and impeccable (sometimes highly imperfect) craftsmanship.

Our focus for this project was on the makers and the unique materials of our overall composition. We celebrate both age-old “primitive” and ancestral techniques alongside cutting-edge technological and artistic innovations. It’s a delicate balance between raw and refined,
where every element – whether sourced locally or around the world – is carefully chosen to evoke thoughtfulness, elegance, and meaning.

As our clients stroll the halls, the Caroline Lizarraga “smoke” mural symbolizes the fiery spirit of creators – a reminder that creativity and authenticity unites us. Our ultimate goal was to craft a space that feels effortless yet exudes elegance. The materials used reflect not
only the passion of the maker but also the soulful glamour of our clients and their travels.

We hope you enjoy it.
