a design company

“Meredith was not only imaginative - and had an amazing sense of color - she was also practical and organized. She fulfilled our vision for our home, rather than imposing her own, but created a design far more satisfying and professional than anything we could conceive on our own. Even better, she was sensitive to budgets and schedules, reviewed the contractor’s billings and the work in progress, and stayed on the project, frequently visiting the site, until the home passed final inspection. Now, two years later, we still consult her on new purchases and maintenance - and recommend her to our friends.”

--Carl and Loraine, Writer-Producers

Meredith was a joy to work with during our kitchen remodel.  We had somewhat limited space but the layout and workflow she came up with really help to make the kitchen look and work great.  Her dealings with service providers was also excellent.  She coordinated the selection and installation of hard-wood floors, windows, tile, granite, lighting and cabinets from multiple vendors so we had a choice of price and personality.  I did not need to call anybody except her.  Finally, Meredith is extremely friendly yet professional and is available to be on-site whenever vendors were present or key work or inspections were being handled.”

"Meredith Pominville of Charlie M had a tremendous impact on the complete remodel we undertook of our Burbank townhouse.  Meredith worked diligently with us throughout the planning and design stage, keeping us on track financially and providing creative input that greatly enhanced the aesthetics of our remodel.  During the construction phase, she was our voice, clearly (and emphatically when necessary) representing our interests with the various contractors we had employed.  She insured the job was completed on time and as agreed upon.  In short, Meredith is very, very good at what she does.  She is a creative, knowledgeable and thoroughly committed to her clients best interest.  Not being educated in this area ourselves, Charlie M provided peace of mind we would not normally have experienced."

“We have known Meredith for almost five years and her work as a designer has been nothing less than professional, creative and educational.  During the remodel of our home, Meredith handled the project from start to finish.  Her attention to detail, specifically the lighting design of our kitchen, was invaluable.  Meredith had complete knowledge of code compliance and was able to clearly communicate not only with the city when it came to permits, but also with our contractor in streamlining and overseeing the project.”

--Mark and Randi

“We were delighted with Meredith Pominville and her Charlie M Company.  She came up with creative and cost-effective design and lighting solutions to make the best of our home’s unusual layout as well as our modest budget.  Without moving any walls, she managed to make our living room more livable and our dining area more conducive to entertaining.  She managed to harmoniously combine our love of African art with our taste for contemporary design. This is particularly true in Alan’s office space, where he wanted clients of his new company, Infinite Kayak Adventures  (www.infinitekayakadventures.com) to be presented not with boring office furniture but an environment that could also effectively display and light ethnic artifacts and wildlife photography.  Meredith took an interest in all the details.  She consistently provided us with progress reports and was always on time and on budget.  We’ll call her again when we are ready to work on the rest of the house!”

--Alan F. & Diane H., Studio City

“Working with Meredith was a pure joy.  Her personality was a perfect fit with ours.  She was respectful to what our needs and budget were and listened to the many ideas we had and was able to put those ideas on paper.  She was incredible with assisting us to see the big and small picture of our project and was never frustrated as the project kept growing and changing.  She worked well with the multiple contractors and subcontractors on our project and never backed down when we needed an advocate.   She was a wealth of knowledge and provided us with the resources when it came time to pick accessories and her sense of incorporating colors and texture were just perfect for what we wanted.  I would say anyone choosing to work with Meredith will be fortunate and when we have more projects in our home we will call on
her again.”

“Meredith was our designer on the remodel of two of our bathrooms.  She worked with us throughout the project - she drew-up the plans, sourced materials, developed tile and cabinet designs, identified sub-contractors and project managed the work on-site.  As two working parents, we had very little time on the weekends to spend shopping for tile, cabinets and sinks, so Meredith would come to our house in the evenings with tile samples and photos to show us. She took our ideas and turned them into well-designed plans to be used by our contractors.  She came up with great design ideas that added just the right amount of unique style to the bathroom designs, while keeping true to the spanish-influenced style of the house.  Meredith is a talented professional who listens to her clients; she is friendly, considerate and accommodating, and was great to work with.
