Review by in Hollywood, FL
I worked with Carol with the redesign of our family room/eat in kitchen area and a game room/bar area. After my initial meeting with Carol I felt very comfortable. She wasn't pushy, she listened to what I wanted my room to feel like. My house was build in 1969 so the living spaces aren't so big. She had great space saving ideas and was willing to use whatever existing furniture I wanted. Carol exceeding my expectations. I love my home know. It feels warm and well put together!! Makes me proud to have guest over!

WeI met with Carol before we even closed on our house and drove the keys over the day of the closing. We told her we were moving in a month and although we has a lot to do the only things that HAD to be done before we moved in were the floors, the painting and either a new shower door in one bathroom or a new tub in the other. I would not be able to use either bathroom the way they were but only needed one ready when we moved. We had a painter through our real estate agent and had already picked out the floor. So she basically had a month to figure out the bathrooms and it wasn't done. She did pick out a great paint color for us and showed us samples for things we wanted to do after the move but did not prioritize the tasks we asked her to. Finally with less then a week before our move in date my husband found someone to redo our tub on his own and hired another company to create a custom shower door for us. She was suppose to meet me at the house the day my furniture was coming but never showed up or called. I suppose if you have all the time in the world you could hire her but if you need things done buy a certain date I would not take the chance. We basically paid her a retainer to pick out a paint color.
Response by Interior Concepts by Carol, Inc.: I think these people forgot that everytime I send a worker over or brought someone over to get an estimate they had already hired someone for the job. I told them we could not get bathrooms done in a few weeks but my tile men were willing to work all weekend before they moved in. When I called them to get their ok they told me - never mind. Also you can't put new shower doors in if you are changing the tile. Again these are people that should not hire an Interior Designer to get their work done. I selected tiles for the bathrooms, new counter tops for the kitchen so they got more than a paint color.

We have been working with Carol for over 5 years. Our home is large and we have decorated an area at a time including the outdoor patio which included a summer kitchen. We are now finished. I have seen many homes in this area but none compare to the beautiful design of my home. It is just beautiful ! We get so many compliments and are so proud of our home, thanks to Carol. I would recommend her anytime. Thank you Carol ! Patricia W.

Carol is a very nice person and very knowledgeable and pleasant. The only downside from our perspective was that everything was done by catalogs with no visits to local stores.

She does everything by board and does not take you directly to the project. She is a very nice and tried to please the customer, however we just do not have the same style.

Carol understood our needs and was very attentive to our individual tastes. She was right on time and even expedited some deliveries to meet our deadline. She gave our home that 'WOW FEELING!!!' I would certainly recommend her for small and large projects. Thanks Carol

I had such a small one bedroom apartment that needed a trained eye and I was almost ashamed to call a Designer as I falsely believed that was for the Rich And Famous. Carol will take on a small job as well as the big ones. I told her I want my new apartment to look like Tuscany and in 2 weeks she had TUSCANY Selected for me with Italian Sofas and Pictures etc. Anyone who has written a review on here saying she is expensive etc is looking for a Rooms To Go/ Ikea Disposable Furniture. Rooms To Go is Rooms To Go in The Garbage 1 year 2 the most.. Carol provides Service and Quality Pieces. USE HER

Review by in Hollywood, FL
Carol was professional and polite but I did not see the value of her $600 retainer. All of her estimates were extremely overpriced (i.e., she quoted me $800 for faux wood blinds/installation but Home Depot had the same blinds for $350 and I found someone to hang them up for $60).She also has a very archaic and outdated way of doing things. She would come over with a bunch of pictures cut from a magazine and pasted onto a piece of cardboard. When I wanted to see more than the ONE option she was showing me, we had to reschedule. She needs to invest in a laptop & interior decorating software.
Response by Interior Concepts by Carol, Inc.: I worked 2 weeks on this project and you can't compare the home depot product to a Hunter Douglas product. What he is calling piece of cardboard is a design board used by all Interior Designers to make a presention. I feel he should not have hired a designer as I quoted him good prices for quality merchandise but it seems he was looking for price instead of quality and service.

I totally enjoyed working with Carol because she was very sensitive to my needs, likes and dislikes. I never felt pressured. She increased my awareness to many new decorating ideas I could never have done on my own. We created a vision together for the decor I wanted. Carol's professionalism, experience and expertise deserve commendation. I am delighted with the outcome and have received numerous compliments from my guests. I am happy to recommend Carol.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search

  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
