WE ♥ HAPPY CLIENTS
Years ago, Maggie was helping me to redesign my family room. She had the vision and foresight to predict trends long before they became popular. We talked about a wraparound leather couch, shag carpeting and fur throw pillows. I ended up getting divorced and the room never got finished. Now, several years later, I live in a great apartment in Houston, with a chocolate brown leather wraparound couch and a cream shag throw rug. Since there is no need to wear my mink coat in Houston, Maggie's vision prompted me to make the coat into four throw pillows. Everyone thinks I'm an interior design genius, but I am quick to give Maggie all of the credit. She is creative, smart and fresh in her thinking. Every design I have seen (including in her own house) shows terrific imagination. She is one of a kind! Next time I have a home to decorate, I know who I will call!!!
Maggie has an impeccable eye and a refreshing way of working. She's great with color, texture and incorporating or refinishing pieces you own. She always brings something unexpected, like having a mural painted in my powder room, instead of hanging wallpaper. She charges hourly, so I can buy things on my own under her direction and she does her magic. I would never pick a paint color without her!
I met with Maggie for a color consultation, mostly regarding my family room. She confirmed that one wall should be a bolder color and the others, a warm neutral. Would highly recommend her. She is incredibly creative and has a great eye for color and patterns.
I have worked with Maggie on two major projects in the last twelve years and have been extremely happy with the results! Maggie is great at pulling together bland or otherwise dated rooms with updated but livable color choices, interesting fabrics and window treatments, and anything else that gives the room more character. When we first moved into our house, she transformed our 1970s kitchen simply with paint and window treatments. We recently completed a major renovation and Maggie was so helpful! We have gotten so many compliments on our color choices, decorative painting, lighting, and other updates that Maggie put together that have made the house so much more interesting and fun than it could have been!

I have worked with Maggie for over 20 years designing window treatments, pillows and other soft furnishings. She is very creative and a delight to work with. I have recommended her to people in need of a decorator. I have had a drapery and soft furnishings workroom for 35 years.
Maggie is simply magnificent! She is extremely approachable, creative, artistic and has a unique sense of style. Maggie always works within our budget and has creative design solutions. Maggie’s touch has transformed our home. We have referred Maggie to our friends, all of whom have been thrilled with her work! So happy to have found a designer that I will be able to work with for many years to come!
I have worked w/ Maggie Hudson Blau for several years and on several rooms. I am always 100% pleased, if not thrilled. Maggie has a great sense of color. She mixes fabrics and textures to create sophisticated, but fun, spaces. She is also charming and easy to work with. I have recommended her to many friends and will continue to do so.
Maggie of Hudson Blau Designs decorated our entire house. We loved working with her and have recommended her to family and friends. She spent the time to really get to know us and our wants/likes/dislikes with regard to style and color. Each room is a gem by itself but she was wonderful at bringing the house together as a whole from a design and style perspective.
We are thrilled with Maggie's work. Her sense of design, style, and willingness to include pieces we loved and wanted to keep, were all key to the project being so successful.
We hired her more recently to redo my daughter's bedroom. That more recent project was successful as well.
I highly recommend Hudson Blau Designs!
Maggie took care of decorating my apartment in a move from
Ohio to New York. She worked with the furniture I had - selected
fabrics and colors for my approval and worked magic to have
everything completed in good time - including drapery panels and
hardware.- all at a very busy time of the year. Everything looks fabulous and she was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for any type of decor! She has the ability to mix unususal patterns and colors together giving me a smart look that was compatible with my taste and budget. It was a very happy experience!
I am happy to give Maggie Hudson Blau my highest recommendation. Compared to other interior designed I have worked with she is more efficient and better able to listen to my aesthetic. Other designers I have worked with have tried to impose a modern look on our 1790 farmhouse which has led to wasted time, extra expense and some regrets. With Maggie we ended up with a kitchen we absolutely love. Maggie is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and she clearly loves what she does. I found her site online and cold called, which can be risky, but it has been an excellent experience.
I highly recommend Maggie Hudson Blau as a designer. Over the past two years, Maggie has helped me with several decorating projects in my home, from updating my living room furniture with new fabrics to completing my dining room and master bedroom with window treatments and new paint colors. Maggie worked within my budget and understood my taste. She has an artistic, elegant style that comes through in her design. Maggie is a pleasure to work with and I plan to use her for future projects in my home.
I have worked with Maggie on many projects over the last 14 years. She is a great listener, extremely creative, respectful of the budget, responsive and prompt. I've been happy with every project we've collaborated on and wouldn't think of working with any other designer in the future.

I've worked with Maggie for over 10 years on several projects. She is a creative designer and helped design my kitchen, select floor finishes, window treatments, colors for my home and artwork. She is enthusiastic, has great energy, is easy to work with and brings great expertise and quality to her work every time. She is sensitive to our budget and always met our deadline. I learned alot about colors and textures and developed my aesthetic. I look forward to working with her in the future.
We have worked with Maggie for almost 20 years. Her professionalism, attention to detail and energy makes working with her a pleasure. We look forward to creating many more beautiful projects together for years to come!

Maggie designed drapes and helped me pick out a color scheme for my Dining Room. She was very helpful with offering ideas and listening to my ideas as well. She also gave helpful suggestions on how to make my furniture pieces stand out.
