    Do you have a vision of what you'd like your home or space to look like, but not quite have the time or finesse to pull it off? I found myself stressing out about designing and decorating my new condo, so hiring Carol was the absolute best decision I made in my house-buying experience. I wasn't even quite sure I could afford an interior designer or "fancy furnishings," but it turns out I could! Carol was an absolute delight from day one, and I was immediately confident in her ability to bring my vision to a reality. She was very easy to work with, and very considerate to incorporate the existing furnishings that I was keeping, stay within my budget, and was super fun to work with as well. I felt like I had a close friend by my side at every step to help me with advice, decisions, and handling all the behind-the-scenes stuff I didn't want to do. I was amazed at how versatile she was and that she could take "the vibe" I described or showed her in photos and make it uniquely just what I wanted. The whole project came together beautifully (I ended up doing my whole house and outdoor space) and I would absolutely recommend Carol's services. I've gotten so many compliments on my new decor, but most importantly, I just love my home. Carol helped me make it home.

    Visited home was asked to do specific work. Went off on a tangent and started discussing colors. Gave her deposit and when we realized she was not for us terminated her services . Asked for refund and was billed for hours of work and travel that we did not ask her to do. Wanted to settle and give her $1000,00 At the end she deducted 3200.00 from my $5000.00 deposit . Only returned $1800.00 . Never received anything from her. Would not recommend this company y for anything. Considered filing suit.

    Response from Company:

    In all the years I have been a designer this was the most puzzling project I have ever had. He took me through the house and wanted everything done except 2 rooms. He signed a contract and gave me a retainer. I came back again to measure the rooms and set up an appointment for my cabinet man to come to the house. I then spent the next 7 days putting the livingroom & familyroom together and looked for a different top for the kitchen. I spent a lot of hours at this point. The day before I was to meet my cabinet man there I got an email saying he didn't want my services anymore. I then figured out how many hours I had spent on the job and sent him back the difference. I based the fee on how many hours I had spent with traveling and shopping. I guess every designer gets one like this every now and then. .Hopefully not to often. He should check the amount I sent him back. His figures are wrong.

    Carol is an outstanding interior designer. A project that started out small grew to be quite large due to damage from unexpected flooding. It didn't phase Carol a bit; she was able to lend advice and locate the professionals we needed and switch gears to the larger project immediately. Without her advice, suggestions, and guidance we would have been overwhelmed. And she was patient enough to allow us to proceed at a pace that allowed previously scheduled family events to occur without disruption. I love our new look! She always took our tastes and lifestyle into consideration and helped elevate the entire decor of our home. She is a pleasure to work with and to know; a very special person!

    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 from Company:

    I think these people forgot that every time 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.
