Marla Wynn Cooper, Design Consultant

Say hello

T: (405) 308–3793

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where my father's work building power lines meant frequent moves to new homes in new places. Perhaps it was that continual re-inventing of a family dwelling that caused my passion for order and beauty wherever I could find it. My sister and I would spend hours on end pouring over magazines with lovely homes and then redesigning our house on notebook paper.

I first came to work for Jerrie and BJ Miller at California Closets in Edmond in 2002, after many years in the hospitality and retail industries. I'll never forget the day I contacted BJ and announced that I had just created a "really cool closet" in my house from found objects and thought this was something I would love to do full time. Surprisingly, they offered me a job, and a couple of years later, I had a real California Closet installed in my home. Needless to say, this is the better closet of the two! But the lesson I learned in all of that is "conceive a vision and make it happen."

It's impossible to put a price on that inevitable peace of mind that comes with having great storage. I love helping our clients resolve their home's challenges by creating beautiful and functional space for their individual and varying needs. To me, this is the most rewarding part of my work.

I feel very fortunate to be part a great team with one common goal, which is excellence in every aspect of our business. From the initial consultation through the design process and installation, Jerrie and BJ have inspired me to reach beyond what is status quo and improve our clients' lives, if even in a small way. Our production crew and installers take such pride in their work. I'm always amazed to see what began as lines on paper become a vital part of someone's home, and always grateful to have contributed.
