Our redecorating plans involved removing wallpaper, painting and updating the general feel of our house. Leslie and her team
had full access for several months while we were absent. Great care was taken in moving and protecting the items being worked
around. A powder room fix became more troublesome than expected, but Leslie managed to turn it into an absolute gem, nonetheless.
Her advice was sound and the selections we were given to choose from were always very classy and unique. Leslie is very easy to
work with and we will be asking her to manage another project in the near future.

"We have found working with Leslie Thompson at Malibu West Interiors to be a positive, stress free experience, as she is
communicative, organized and professional.
Our home design layout is beautiful, yet challenging, as it is a large, free flowing, open space floor plan overlooking the
water. Not easy to tie together for a cohesive, unified look. Yet, Leslie Thompson showed she is a visionary, displaying
creativity and talent. Her wealth of experience was evident as she researched furniture, fabrics, colors, rugs, draperies,
and accessories (all to perfection) tying the rooms together for a cohesive sophisticated look.
The result of her efforts is a stunning, successful conclusion to our home design project and a place we are proud to call
home during the winter months in Florida."

"I saw photo's of your work on your website. And I had a good feeling at our first meeting.
Professional, focused, friendly, with a very relaxed demeanor, you seemed like someone I would truly enjoy
working with. Nearly a year later, I now know you are talent and dedication beyond designing/decorating.
The house looks just like I hoped it would, and I could have never done it without you.
I truly appreciate your attention to ALL the details, the extra time you and Tim took compensating for
other's mistakes, filling in at meetings , etc, when it wasn't your responsibility to do so, and always
keeping us informed with good news, or otherwise. Thank you Leslie and Tim Thompson for keeping the vision on
what I once referred to as our "project", and what I now refer to as our magnificent new home."

"After having many years of experience with interior decorators, I can easily say that Leslie
Thompson has provided me with the most satisfying experience. I found her and the Malibu West Interiors
team to be professional, efficient and trustworthy. All admirable traits that are rare these days.
Leslie is a very talented designer who was very willing to work directly with me until she understood
my style. She then showed me how fabulous our home could be. Every time we return to Naples we marvel at
the beautiful interiors that were all made possible by Leslie. I still have more decorating projects in
my future and you can be sure Leslie and Malibu West Interiors will once again be called on to do their

"With the fifth anniversary of our working together fast approaching, we wanted to reflect on all
that you have done for us in that period that has made our home a much more attractive place in which to
live. We and you inherited a number of problems from floors to furniture to fabrics that needed redesign
or change to create the sort of "feel" we were looking for. You listened well and understood implicitly
what we were trying to achieve and brought the expertise to help us get it right and the experience to
make sure we didn't make costly mistakes. Now the results are here for all our visitors to see and for
us to enjoy. We are great believers in dealing with small business where possible; and in your case not
having the 'baggage' of the larger organization has meant we have had a very personal, enjoyable and
effective service from you. Keep up the good work - and feel free to pass this letter on to anyone who
wants a first hand assessment from an enthusiastic client."

"I was somewhat hesitant to use a professional designer, but we had just bought a new house
in a new state, so were new to an area with an overwhelming choice but no knowledge of where to shop
and who to use. I wanted the house to be my personality, not someone else's.
Malibu Interiors was recommended by a friend. After meeting Leslie and talking, I was amazed that her
designs and ideas adapted to my personal style. She pulled rabbits out of hats, using her contacts
and experience to deliver outstanding results. Leslie worked hard coming up with ideas that suited
the style we wanted, and worked with us patiently while we made and changed our minds. We are
delighted with the results and have a house that people walk in and say 'wow'."
- Guy & Joan B., The Quarry
"We are so pleased with our beautiful home and the excellence with which it was designed. It is

professionalism which exceeded our expectations. You were considerate, perceptive and patient with
excellent communication skills. We appreciate the fine customer service and your impeccable honesty."

"The work of Leslie Thompson was truly wonderful. Her imagination and creativity in blending colors
and features was of great help to us in seeing a marvelous finished product. Her communication and
coordination of details was greatly appreciated. Leslie was a delight to work with!"
- John & Marti Frisvold, Moorings Park
"When Leslie and her team did the design for my home in Naples, it was one of those rare
experiences of having the reality vastly exceed your expectations. Not only were the results superb
(I am frequently complimented on how welcoming and beautiful my home is), but the process was both
exciting and enjoyable. Leslie opened up the "inner workings" of a designer's world, allowing me to be
involved in the creation of the design concept and then she executed the plan flawlessly - with great
attention to detail. All this was achieved with a degree of graciousness that was admirable (particularly
given that I shortened the deadline by a few months.) When I first stepped into my home it was completely
ready to receive guests... down to the beds being made up!... There are few firms in any line of business
that I can recommend as heartily as I do Malibu West Interiors."
- Louise P., The Moorings, Naples, FL
"Leslie was able to transform our newly purchased, empty home into a warm, inviting and comfortable
retreat. She was open to listening to our needs and wishes and at our first meeting, was well prepared
with an amazing choice of color schemes and samples and ideas. Since we had only six days before
returning to the North, she met with us every day and was able to work the color scheme in each of our
rooms, and order almost all of the furniture and fabrics during that time. The rest was accomplished via
long distance and email. The result was beyond our expectations...she created a home that not only is
beautiful but practical as well. Her attention to detail is impressive; she ties up all the loose ends
and keeps excellent records. So not only is she creative, she is also a smart business woman and easy
to work with. Our family recommends her highly."
- Helen, Pelican Marsh, Naples, FL
"My husband and I really loved working with Leslie on our new home. Leslie listened to our needs
and provided fantastic Design ideas for us. It was so much fun choosing fabric, furniture and
accessories. She and her partner Tim are very professional and they worked very well supervising the
installations. They made our entire Design process an enjoyable experience. Leslie made our home
beautiful and she accomplished our Design goals while staying within our budget. Our home is everything
we hoped for and much, much more thanks to Malibu West Interiors inc."
