Marla's Design Mission

Experienced. Inspired. Design

Above and Beyond Design | Marla VogtWith my 20 years of design experience and 16 of those years focusing on kitchen and bath design, I can offer you so much more than your typical cabinet shop.

For years I saw the client struggle with making decisions on pulling it all together, whether it be a remodel or new construction. So many decisions are hinged on one another and it can make your project stressful, losing all of it’s excitement. I can help simplify that process for you by creating a computer generated colored visual of what your space will look like complete. With my knowledge and experience of being in the industry my entire life, I can offer you as little or as much guidance in whatever the design project, large or small. You can purchase the materials only for your own installation or I have the best of the best, when it comes to install or a full remodel.

With 19 years of design experience, the area of commercial restaurant design has become such a passion for me, as well. My work experience began at the City Diner located at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, Guido’s Pizzaria & Tapas banquet room on the hill, Twist Frozen Yogurt, Milagro Modern Mexican, and so many more. I love being a part of the vision, creating a design concept that ultimately goes hand in hand with the restaurant’s future success. My assistance & guidance with pulling the colors, flooring, booth selection, chairs, lighting, etc…will make the process feel simple, ending with a design that is professionally polished; giving your space the ambiance that makes it the perfect dining experience.

Let me help make your dreams come true…by assisting you in your project. Always providing quality and service going ‘above and beyond’ your expectations! Don’t just take my word for it… see what others have to say!

  • You know how you meet someone to work with and it immediately feels ‘right?’  That was our experience with Above & Beyond from our first meeting and throughout our extensive project.  With their help, we basically gutted a 20+ year-old home and turned it into something we really love.  The huge kitchen, new baths, updated flooring and colors … you name it. Thanks so much, Marla!
