We are doing well and enjoying our new home! The Kitchen and cabinets are awesome so far. You nailed the design in terms of functionality for workflow. We will be getting in touch when we are ready to do consider additional work for our exterior and our fireplace. We have been recommending your services to anyone who asks.

I have been working with Megan for almost a year on the building of our home. She was recommended highly as an interior designer by the architect who was doing the drawings for our new home.
One of the things I appreciate most about her are her communication and listening skills. I have always felt completely comfortable asking her any questions and she takes the time to make sure she understands my thoughts and needs before progressing to the next step. She also makes sure that I grasp any concepts that she is laying out. Megan is very timely in any email or phone communication that I send her and keeps me updated on our design process as it moves along. Beyond her professional skills, Megan has a very friendly personality and is the type of person who can relate and communicate well with anyone she meets. Of all the professionals I have worked with in our home building process, I have to say that Megan has been the person who has fully understood what I wanted for our new home and has been able to help me implement my ideas, and in all honesty, made the process much less stressful and more fun along the way. I will be recommending her to friends and acquaintances who are looking for a top-notch interior designer.

Although there are details left to be finished, Leo and I are very much enjoying the upstairs bath. It is already made a big difference in daily life for all of us. Thanks for being so responsive to us throughout this project. It means a lot!

I wanted to give you an updated of what we have tackled since our initial consultation. We took down the curtains, moved the love seat, and trimmed the bushes. Also put a bin for everyone in the front entryway to make it more functional. Guess what? You were right! Just those little things made a HUGE difference in the feel of the house. Plus having a starting point has kept us motivated.
Still need to get the house power washed and paint the main floor. I can’t wait to see what a difference that makes!!

My husband and I worked with Megan on our complete remodel of our kitchen. We had the best experience working with her! It was hard for us to put into words what sort of design we wanted. She asked poignant questions that directed her to a very custom, tailored kitchen, designed specifically for our needs.
Her design Incorporated features that I would never have thought of. She increased the standard depth of our counters. She gave us a very smartly designed "command center". She incorporated some beautiful glass cabinetry and so many other details that make this room our favorite room in the house. I’m so happy we worked with Megan, I have loved our new kitchen and have not regretted any of the decisions we made

I moved into my home in the summer of 2016 and the first thing I knew that needed to be done was a complete kitchen remodel. My house was built in 1926 and the provided its own challenges such as plumbing to the only bathroom going right through the kitchen. I called upon my friend and kitchen designer Megan Hannam. I knew she would be able to help me figure out the design I wanted and make it happen. Throughout the entire process Megan was right there leading me through and letting me know what to expect. I could not be more pleased with how my kitchen turned out and the entire process was very smooth. I would highly recommend Megan and her services to anyone.

I talked with a few designers and contractors before finally meeting Megan. I knew quickly she would be the right fit for our project. She listened to my vision and incorporated everything we wanted, while making suggestions that have turned out to be some of our favorite components in the finished space. It was a fun partnership. She guided us through the entire gut remodel of the space in our 1919 home - and old homes have their issues, for sure! Every construction project has its challenging moments, and she kept me going with good humor and positivity. She's continued to look out for us afterward to make sure we're happy with our new kitchen. And we sure are. It is a beautiful space where I love cooking and making memories with our family.

Megan was marvelous to work with on the design of our kitchen. We live in a historic house (built in 1917) and we wanted to return the kitchen to a design more consistent with the history and architecture of our home (it was previously updated in the 1980s). Megan understood our vision for the home and gave us choices that fit within that concept. She also prevented us from making some poor design choices that we were considering prior to hiring her.
We gutted the kitchen down to the studs so there were many decisions to be made. Megan guided us expertly through the process and was considerate of our choices. She knew we wanted soapstone counter tops. Soapstone was not a locally sourced product and instead of directing us to a different product that was easier to obtain, she found a source in the twin cities and we have beautiful soapstone countertops. Our kitchen has received numerous compliments. The main remark people make is that the kitchen looks bright and fresh but is well tailored to our historic home. We are thrilled with the results and highly recommend the talented Megan Hannam as a designer.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Megan on our kitchen remodel. The remodel involved gutting the existing kitchen and enlarging the footprint of the house in order to accomplish our objectives. Megan immediately understood the concept of the project and offered excellent design guidance throughout. She also coordinated an update of the adjacent dining room, formal living room, and front entry to our home. Her knowledge and application of color and fabrics was outstanding and her ability to work with people/vendors made this an enjoyable experience

Megan immediately had a vision of how to create the clean, contemporary lines we desired for our kitchen and bathroom renovations. Her knowledge of the newest product choices impressed us and her diligence in keeping our projects moving forward to completion made us happy.
