About Marjorie:

Marjorie Cranston has built her own business since 1992 and prior was involved with retail store planning and design.  She also ran the human resource department for 23 stores and trained and hired design staff training them in aspects of interior design and wrote detailed classes in product knowledge and manufacturing of home furnishings. 

Later she was hired for store planning and designed the necessary store remodels and was also an accessory buyer for those stores.  She left in 1992 to start her own business working primarily with builders and their clients building custom homes.  Since that time she has designed hundreds of homes including launching the beginning stages of the homes built in Castle Pines Village and the Preserve in Greenwood Village in the Denver Area.

Product knowledge is her claim to fame and she understands all components of construction from Architectural stages thru the furnishing of a home.  Her recommendations for the construction selections come from years of experience learning the components needed, their pricing structure, and the benefits of certain products to meet the budgets of building process not sacrificing the look and integrity of the project.  She works with both builder and homeowner to insure the selections are timely and also meet the creative design necessary to complete an outstanding project.


Marjorie has won many awards, has been published in major magazines, and has enjoyed winning Best of Shows and has been an outstanding designer in her field both prior to beginning her own business and since.
