"Mercedes has a wonderful eye for color and space. She is very attentive to the clients needs and gets things done efficiently. Her coordination of all the different aspects of the project is seamless. I would highly recommend Mercedes as a designer as her vast experience and knowledge saves the client time and ultimately cost."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Mercedes Courland over the past ten years on residential projects and designer showcases. She is a brilliant designer, who consistently blows me away with her ideas and color treatments. For example, she recently did the master bath in the Southampton Designer Showcase. With a predominantly grey scheme, she had me paint a fuchsia powder room with harlequin. The fuschia was a pop of color, and it came out amazing. I know from working with her clients, that they have all been thrilled to have Mercedes design their home."
"I worked with Mercedes on redesigning our kitchen in Florida. Mercedes came up with new and fresh ideas, saw things other kitchen designers missed. I would highly recommend working with Mercedes, she is professional and timely and knows how to use color !!!!!"
"Mercedes is an extremely talented interior designer with a strong architectural background and vision to create and design ordinary space into the extraordinary. I was throughly impressed after having met and hired Mercedes only to learn how truly gifted she is. A full drawing of my library inclusive of furnishings, amazing drapery and custom carpet complete with hand picked accessories and wallpaper gave me the confidence to know I had hired the right individual. Mercedes' knowledge of space, color, and texture is remarkable and I would recommend her. She's easy to work with and her fees are affordable."
"Mercedes is an extremely talented designer with exquisite taste. I've worked with other designers and none of them listened to what I wanted. Immediately when I started working with Mercedes she not only listened to me but made the entire experience exciting and fun.
She's designed a bathroom and a family room for us which came out stunning and takes my breath away every time I walk into them. I'm so excited to see what she has in store for the rest of the rooms in my home."
"Mercedes is rare. From her earliest training in Paris & London three decades of experience in Manhattan & the Hamptons, she has distinguished herself by remembering the value of classical forms with a modern fashion consciousness. I believe Mercedes’ home life with an architect father and dancer mother contributed to her refined tastes. To compare her to another known quantity, I say her approach is reminiscent of Ralph Lauren. She has that capability to feel entirely current but enduring. She brings a keen awareness of position and social circumstance, from crisp formality to comfortable. But always finds a way to elevate. She explains her sense of architecture in both hard finishes and soft finishes with exquisite perspective renderings, by hand. Mercedes sets herself apart on procurement as well. Not every designer has a loom in the Himalayas waiting for her next creation! Mercedes can design original furniture, select or create a fabric, tile or paint and unite these textures with structural embellishment appropriate to the beat of the whole. Her demeanor is warm and functional-even soothing as a collaborator. "
