Margie Warga, Meghan Dobish, Nina Carnevale, Mary-Jo Mantz,  Sandie Gershenfeld, Marisa Tanner and
Jennifer Karwan


Thank you so much Margie Warga for making me happy to come home, you have been amazing to work with. You are extremely talented and knowledgeable, and more important you were able to give me beautiful rooms in a tight budget. I cannot express how happy I am with all you have done.

Irene., New York

We had a very engaging experience with our designer Margie Warga. She took the time to shop for the furniture we were looking for at different price points and as it took us a long time to decide, changing our minds several times, she was very patient and professional. Not to mention was fun to work with.

We love our transitional living room. She found us our handsome but not oversized swivel, rocker recliners in a beautiful soft camel color leather. Beautiful sofa, coffee table and console .

Theresa., Upper Montclair, New Jersey  

I have to start off by saying that I was brand new to the interior design world. I called Lawrence-Mayer just to chat and get an idea of what they do and how it’s done. I was so lucky that Margie Warga picked up my call and I immediately clicked with her. She explained some things to me on the phone but to my surprise, she came to my house two days later! She took the time to sit with me to go over some ideas and how it all worked. I was so impressed with her ideas and her honesty that I hired her that day! I work in finance and numbers is all I know, I needed someone like Margie to take control and just make it happen with the designs. She worked with me within my budget and I will continue to work with her room by room till my whole house looks as beautiful as my living/dining room does. I would HIGHLY recommend her service to all my friends and family.

Christy., Wall Township, New Jersey  

We had the pleasure of working with Meghan Dobish for well over 10 years. From the very first time we met her, we knew it would be an amazing experience. She has a real gift and is incredibly  passionate about her job. The original presentation that she gave us was mind blowing. She had so many beautiful combinations of colors and textures that it was hard (but fun) to choose between them. We continued to use her over the next several years and she continued to deliver the most beautiful results. We eventually downsized and sold our house and then got to use Meghan again for our new townhouse. Once again, she did an amazing job and we get so many compliments on her work. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. She is a very talented designer and a wonderful human being.

Jeff B., Farmingdale & Tinto Falls, New Jersey

We hired Jennifer Karwan to help us decorate our new home at the beach. Jen was so easy to work with…the project has been effortless. Jen has a wonderful eye and has guided us as we had to make numerous decisions. She has also worked closely with our builder as well as with other craftsman-painters, tile vendor etc., providing expert guidance. We have also been quite pleased with the quality and uniqueness of the furnishings she has suggested and of equal importance the project has been on time and on budget. Everyone that comes into our home just raves about how beautifully pulled together everything is. In fact I have recommended Jen to friends who have also engaged her.

I first wandered into Lawrence-Mayer to get help bringing my home out of the ’80s. Mary-Jo Mantz introduced herself, and I immediately was attracted to her approachable personality and sense of humor. She showed me her portfolio, and I realized she is an amazing talent as well and just the person I needed to work with.

Over the years I have done (from the ground up) three homes, three condos, one vacation home, and two commercial properties with Mary-Jo’s guidance every step of the way: architectural plans, material selection, subcontractor supervision, and installation. Mary-Jo’s choice of unique accents, proportion, scale, texture, and color has provided me with outstanding results. Her understanding of the use of space awarded me flowing floor plans that are warm and welcoming to family and friends.

Mary-Jo is a concept-to-reality interior designer and extraordinary artist.

Eilleen., Spring Lake, New Jersey

To Margie Warga, once again, we’d like to express our appreciation and tremendous satisfaction with your interior design presentation. You really outdid yourself!

The color scheme and design ideas are exactly what we wanted. You clearly understand us and what we want our home to represent.

We thought we couldn’t get more excited about our new home. However, after your presentation, we are now bursting at the seams with excitement! Thanks to you and your entire team for your hard work and creativity.

It was my lucky day meeting Meghan Dobish at Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design. Working with her, since 2009, has been one of the most rewarding and exciting experiences of my life.

Meghan’s fresh and innovative approach to interior design is creativity at the highest level. Although all of her beautiful work went out to sea with Sandy, I am so looking forward to working with her all over again! Then, onto my Florida home. Meghan, you are the best!

Janet G., Mantoloking, New Jersey

Working with Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design on our oceanfront home was a wonderful experience.

The entire staff at Lawrence-Mayer is so helpful and friendly, from the office personnel to the delivery services. Our interior designer, Jennifer Karwan, listened closely and presented ideas that fit our lifestyle perfectly. She made the whole process fun and enjoyable.

Ann F., Spring Lake, New Jersey

I had a very pleasant and worry free experience working with Alice Lawrence who looked after my every need and desire in redecorating my Florida home.

I had many choices of window treatments, carpets, furniture (new and recovered), lamps, accessories, wall unit, wallpapers selected by Ali and shown to me in very comprehensive layouts. I was able to choose everything without having to leave the comfort of my own home. Everything was brought to me for approval and then arranged. Deliveries and installations were also arranged without my having to be on site.

This firm uses the very best in each category and the service was well beyond my expectations. I was never pushed to go with colors or styles that did not meet my preferences.

Ali would be the first person I would call if I needed anything added or changed in my home.

It was the best experience I could have imagined.

We recently worked with Ali Lawrence of Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design to redecorate our home in Jupiter, Florida. During the planning phase Ali worked with us to develop an overall plan and was especially helpful in all aspects of the renovation. We had a good plan and budget. During the implementation, Ali and her firm managed contractors, furniture and rug deliveries and placement with efficiency and attention to detail. They were organized, transparent and responsive to our needs. We are EXTREMELY pleased with the final result. We feel like we are living in a new home… LOVE IT!

Don R., Jupiter Florida

I walked into Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design and was met by Margie Warga. I told her I was in a rush to get my house done, as my husband was ill. She understood, listened to what I wanted, and soon did a presentation – and she got it exactly right!

Since then, we have worked together on several projects, and I always have been thrilled with the results. Working with Margie is always a joy. Her ideas are so creative, and the final results are always beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend her interior designing work to anyone, for a beach cottage or large estate home.

A huge thank you to Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Jennifer Karwan and the team at Lawrence-Mayer. She has listened and paid great attention to detail, often picking up on the subtleties that give our home a timeless, elegant look. The quality of furniture is bar none and the in-house workmanship does not disappoint. Thank you again for an experience that has been above and beyond our expectations!

After Superstorm Sandy, when we were ready to think about rebuilding, we knew exactly where to turn: Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design.

The first floor of our waterfront home was completely destroyed by Sandy. We cannot wait for our designer at Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design to make us feel at home again.

Though the storm was devastating, we look forward to working with the outstanding team at Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design. We know they’re our trusted partners for bringing back our home and making it better than ever.

Chris S., Mantoloking, New Jersey

When we moved into our new home, I was excited but overwhelmed with the prospect of decorating. After meeting with Sandie Gershenfeld, I felt only excitement over the project. I was impressed with her wonderful combination of enthusiasm, professionalism, and responsiveness.

Sandie really listened to me and I always felt like we were a team. Her attention to detail and dedication to always finding the perfect combination of colors and fabrics made working with her a pleasure. She has helped me to achieve the perfect balance between elegance and shore living. I look forward to a continued relationship with Sandie and Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design.

Cyndy Gutkowski, Sea Girt, New Jersey

I highly recommend Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design! Over the years, my experience working with Mary-Jo has been an extreme pleasure. She is extremely professional and creative. I’ve always been immensely satisfied with the quality of her work.

L. Shennin

My home is beautiful! Each room flows into the next, and yet, each has its own feel and personality. The interior design, custom-designed area rugs, and magnificent window treatments make you gasp as you enter each room.

Mary and John McDonough

Working with Lawrence-Mayer is such a pleasure. I highly recommend that you visit their showroom and meet with a designer. Our designer’s advice was impeccable, and she attended to every detail.

Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design made our decisions so easy, and the results were magnificent! Finally, our house is now a home!

Patricia M., Wall, New Jersey

You and your staff have gone beyond the call of duty in helping us realize our dreams. We love our home! You helped us with every detail, including diplomacy in making our home exquisite while reflecting our every wish. It’s warm, cozy, and beautiful. It doesn’t get any better than that!

MaryLou and Michael Cunningham

Today I received a copy of Florida Design magazine. It is beautiful! It is so warming to read what loyal clients you have and how many friends you have made through the years. It must have been fun to work with the client of the home featured in the magazine. Wow!

Karen Poltulski

Working with Lawrence-Mayer Interior Design is a true pleasure. They were our interior design team in two major renovations to our fourteen year old home. We appreciate how they listened to the “look” we wanted and turned it into reality for us. Their color sense, choices of furnishings, room design, and accessories are first class. They provided the best customer satisfaction we have ever experienced. We will continue to seek their expertise with any future updating to our home.
