For more than 25 years, Marie Lail Blackburn, the owner and principal designer at MLB Design Group, has been developing award winning designs that transform houses into warm and inviting homes.  

Marie is the only interior design professional in Washington awarded both the Certified Master Kitchen + Bath Designer and the Certified Interior Designer credentials.   These accreditations signify advanced expertise and design knowledge, and are the foundation of her unique skillset.  She weaves together this combination of expertise and extensive experience with a keen understanding of interior space planning and functionality to deliver technically sound and beautiful designs that are inspired by what matters most to you. 

MLB Design Group specializes in kitchen and bathroom design, believing that your kitchen is the heart of your home where you gather and share, and your bath is a place for renewal.  All of the work featured here began with one or both of these intentions in mind.

Every story is different. What is the story of your home?
