Beth M., December 2023

We tried working with other designers on our major (to the studs/18 months of construction) remodel prior to Marcio, but he was THE ONE. He was exactly what we were looking for. He had an amazing ability to figure out what we were trying to accomplish and then design a beautiful and functional way to do it and in synch with other parts of our house. Marcio has the unique combination of creative talent, the ability to read the client and figure out what he/she wants and is the most humble person who works well with your contractor and vendors. He is a joy to be with. He is patient and kind. Everyone in the business loves him. I was a very difficult client. I couldn’t describe what I wanted. Marcio worked with me using photos, sketches and renderings to finalize my vision. He easily pivoted when I changed my mind without any of the diva attitude I experienced with other designers. The end product exceeded my expectations and is jaw dropping gorgeous. I would never even consider working with anyone else.

Kavitha V., November 2023

Aspen Leaf Interiors consists of talented team. I have been working with Marcio Decker for last two years on my new build. I am extremely happy with their attention to details, considering textures, shapes, space and most of all aesthetics of project. I highly recommend Aspen Leaf Interiors for your next design services. It's been pleasure to work with a top notch professional team.

Michelle H., January 2020

My husband and I met Marcio in 2004 when a friend recommended him for the tenant improvement designs for our business. Since that time, Marcio has completed various design projects for us including one small commercial office space, two large commercial office spaces, an HOA club house, a man cave, a lake house and a ranch house. What I love about Marcio is that he recognizes his clients do not have just one particular style and that they want variety and uniqueness on each project. He is considerate of the given budget and time constraints and always delivers a knock out design. The contractors love working with him too. He is currently designing another commercial space for us and we are so excited to see the finished product. Thank you Marcio!

Cathexes, January 2020

Our architectural firm, CATHEXES, LLC was brought in as a team member to work with Aspen Leaf Interiors on a large home renovation project here in Reno, Nevada. Communications and design insights brought to the project by Marcio Decker and Holly Canon of Aspen Leaf interiors were always timely and continually elevated the aesthetics of the project. We at CATHEXES would gladly recommend Aspen Leaf Interiors to anyone looking to renovate or build new.

Working with Aspen Leaf has been an absolute pleasure. The team is one of the best, setting a benchmark in both professionalism as well as delivery. The designs they have put together are stunning and they way they work in such a positive manner at all times is exceptionally rare and cherished. I would highly recommend Aspen Leaf Interiors!

Jen E., December 2019

We've used Aspen Leaf Interiors for several projects - small and large - and they are always an absolute pleasure to work with. Marcio recently helped us with our master bathroom remodel and we couldn't be happier with the result. His design was tasteful, thoughtful and fit our style perfectly. He knew where we could be bold and where we should think about being timeless. They helped guide us with material selections, vendor recommendations and emotional support (remodels are hard!). I always felt they had our best interests in mind. I can't recommend Aspen Leaf highly enough.

Truckee Tahoe Lumber Design Center, December 2019

We have worked with Aspen Leaf Interiors for over 10 years. Marcio and his team are creative and innovative; always ahead of the design trends! Their professionalism is outstanding. We always look forward to do a project with them.

Michelle A., July 2019

Marcio and his team are so professional and talented! A fun group to work with, as well as timely in getting the project done.

Peggy H., July 2018

We have used Marcio and Betty at Aspen Leaf for three projects. The most recent was a new house that they advised on from the beginning of planning. They helped with design, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms, assisted in the layout of the rooms, and chose the furniture. They supervised the delivery of the furniture and we came home to a beautifully decorated house. They were very professional in all aspects of the project. They also assisted with decorating the house for our first Christmas. We would certainly use them again for any projects we might have in the future.

Anna M., March 2017

Aspen Leaf Interiors provided great customer service, creative ideas, and collaborated well with my husband and I as we completely remodeled our future retirement home. We had very specific ideas and they worked hard to bring this customization to fruition. Our home continues to get raves from all who visit. Thanks to Marcio and the ALI team!

Berman, March 2016

“I feel compelled to write a note of gratitude to Aspen Leaf Interiors. We purchased an unfurnished home in Gray's crossing in November and had lofty hopes to host friends and family for Presidents Day weekend in February. Most people told us that we couldn't possibly design and furnish our home that quickly, but Olivia from Aspen Leaf wasn't daunted. Wasting no time, Olivia and her team met with us in our home, getting a sense of our style and our plans for using the house. Within a week, Olivia presented us with several design options that were not only beautiful, but that also fit our budget! Focusing on pieces that would be available quickly, Olivia and her team came up with a gorgeous design plan that is contemporary, warm, and welcoming. Aspen Leaf was extremely attentive and worked so efficiently that we were hosting friends in our decorated home by January! Thanks to Olivia, I experience such joy when I walk into our home. [And, as an added bonus, after Olivia's talented work, our management company upgraded our home and renters have given rave reviews.] Thank you, Aspen Leaf!”

Mellema, October 2015

“A truly exceptional design company. Marcio Decker and his team not only present superb concepts, but, much more important, listen and observe. With their considerable assistance, we were able to create a warm, inviting second home that we adore. While other design professionals we have worked with insist their concept is the 'best', Decker and his team truly understand different visions and assist each client in achieving the one the client can truly enjoy, appreciate and call their 'home'.”

Welling Construction, March 2015

We have had the honor to work with Aspen Leaf Interiors on multiple projects. They are a talented group of designers that we would highly recommend to any client. They are professional, yet warm and inviting. The entire firm is easy to work with, thorough, and gifted with an impeccable eye for detail. Their ability to find and select materials helps the job move forward seamlessly. A pleasure to partner with!

Turnbaugh, September 2014

“Mike and I wanted to let you all know how beautiful our home turned out. You took our ideas and made them even more spectacular than we could have ever imagined. Staying in our condo for the first time was definitely surreal for us. It is hard to believe that it has been two years in the making. We can’t thank you enough for working with us and taking us through the process with ease. It was probably more difficult for us at times being far away where we couldn’t just stop in to see the process. We will definitely spread your name around and refer whenever we can.”

Woodridge Construction, December 2013

“I have worked with the Aspen Leaf design team on multiple projects. The service they offer is first class. They listen to our clients needs and wants and fulfill this with a very creative and unique design. As a builder I really appreciate their quick response to any questions or changes that may come about. Aspen Leaf has the ability to find materials and products that no one else can. I highly recommend this interior design group for their knowledge and expertise.”

Griggs Custom Homes, September 2013

“We have worked on multiple projects throughout the years with Aspen Leaf Interiors, ranging from Lakefronts to small remodels in the Tahoe-Truckee and Reno areas. They are great to work with and make my job easier as the General Contractor by streamlining the process with our Clients. The team is very organized, thorough, and tailor their craft for each Client. Each member of their team compliments one another’s skill set and quite simply are great at what they do.”

Chapman, November 2012

“I just wanted to write you a quick note about how much we love our remodeled house in Northstar, Truckee. It’s gorgeous! The house is everything we imagined it could be! This fact is due in large part to your design expertise and customer service. In the area of design, we really enjoyed working with you both. Your creativity and experience helped us utilize our space more effectively and aesthetically. Moreover, you weren’t married to a particular design element. If we didn’t like something, you jettisoned that idea, and worked to find something that we would love. In the end, we have a beautiful, mountain-modern home that suits our living style perfectly. As for customer service, you were lots of fun, and you executed to plan. You kept us well-informed of progress and glitches. You were flexible when needed. You had good contacts that were as honest, trustworthy, and timely as you were. Most importantly, you wanted us to be happy. Again, if we weren’t happy with a item, you took immediate action to correct or replace the item with something we would like. This kind of customer service is hard to find, but you manage it with ease. Lastly, your individual skills complement each other nicely. You have combined creativity and vision with project management in way that makes the remodeling process as painless as possible for the customer.”
