Our clients say it best:


LOVED WORKING WITH HER! SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN TO ME AND UNDERSTAND MY TASTES AND LIFESTYLE. I’LL DEFINITELY USE HER AGAIN AND RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN HIRING A DESIGNER.

We could not have selected a better designer for our office than Elsbeth. She’s smart, creative, frugal, and can work magic out of thin air. But most of all, she’s incredibly kind and hardworking. Whenever we had a difference of aesthetic opinion, she was flexible and creative in adjusting her vision to match ours. We had a tight budget, and she was going to reduce her fee to make sure we got everything we needed to design our office. In short, the work comes first, as it does with every great artist. I really can’t recommend Elsbeth enough.

If I won the lotto, one of the things I would do is put Elsbeth on retainer for life. Seriously, this lady is a gem! Her vision, creativity and work ethic is outstanding. I worked with Elsbeth on an art installation project after seeing some of her work at a friends house. She met with me to discuss my vision and then went home to brainstorm...and brainstorm she did! There are many things I liked about working with Elsbeth...her active listening skills, her ability to take my feedback and make adjustments, her commitment to a time frame and her respect for my budget. I always felt comfortable sharing my thoughts with her and the working relationship felt more like a partnership. If you’re looking for design advice or interior decorating support, reach out to Elsbeth now before she becomes too busy. Her ideas are limitless!

I had the pleasure of working with Elsbeth Mumm at my design studio/shop in Santa Cruz, Saffron and Genevieve, for five lovely years. I highly recommend Elsbeth as a person, a designer, and artist. She has the temperament, the eye, the attention to detail, the problem solving, she’s got it all! Whether you know what you need or you need her to see what you need - she can make it happen, like magic.

Elsbeth Mumm at Wild Abandon Design is my favorite stylist to work with, hands down! Her vision is always spot on and everything she touches is turned into a beautiful piece of art. She is so fun and easy to work with, she is the kindest soul, and she is a true professional. Elsbeth knows how to take an idea and turn it into a reality that is perfectly unique and gorgeous! I wish she could style my whole life! From a videographers perspective, she makes my job too easy! Her styling translates incredibly well on camera. There are no bad shots when working with Elsbeth, because everywhere I turn, there is a beautifully styled scene to capture!

ELSBETH IS A GREAT PERSON AS WELL AS A FANTASTIC, VISIONARY ARTIST. I HAD HEEDED THE ADVICE OF A FENG SHUI EXPERT AND DECIDED TO HAVE A BED CANOPY INSTALLED. I HAD A VISION IN MIND, BUT WASN’T SURE HOW TO MANIFEST IT. I THOUGHT ELSBETH WOULD BE THE PERFECT ARTIST FOR THE JOB BECAUSE OF HER INNOVATIVENESS, SKILL AND GENEROUS SPIRIT. I CONTACTED HER AND DESCRIBED MY DREAM CANOPY. SHE WAS A FOUNTAIN OF BRILLIANT IDEAS AND CREATED AND INSTALLED THE MOST ELABORATE, BEAUTIFUL, ENCHANTED CANOPY THAT I’VE EVER SEEN. IT SURPASSED MY HIGH EXPECTATIONS. I WANT TO HANG OUT IN MY MAGICAL BED SPACE ALL THE TIME NOW. IN FACT, I’M WRITING THIS REVIEW FROM UNDERNEATH ETHEREAL WHITE DRAPERY, PSYCHEDELIC TAPESTRIES, COLORFUL YARN AND GARLANDS.
