My husband and I wanted a fresh update to the interior of our house and after looking at Ranj's portfolio, I knew that her upscale design expertise was exactly what we were looking for. After meeting with her and discussing the scope of work, Ranj created interactive design boards that we referred to like a bible. The boards included floor plans and layouts for each room and suggestions on anything from painting colors, area rugs and vases, to sectionals, chandeliers and more. Clicking on the pictures linked us to the exact item on a store's website. We also used the boards as a forum to ask her opinion or comment on something. Redesigning during a pandemic proved to be challenging at times, with many items out of stock, but Ranj helped us find other options when needed. She also worked with us on different price points from which to choose from. And when we forgot about certain things that weren't initially on the project - such as ceiling fans and a wall clock, she sent us several suggestions as well. Ranj was also instrumental in securing appointments with contractors and obtaining quotes for the services needed. There were many times when we sought advice on something, so we'd text her and she was always quick to respond. Ranj is a professional, friendly and fun to work with. She saw us through our design adventure from start to finish. We highly recommend her for your designing needs!

Ranj was absolutely amazing to work with! My boyfriend and I were in the process of a complete remodel and we desperately needed help choosing all the finishes for the interior and exterior of the house. We felt extremely overwhelmed with all the decisions and options to choose from. Since the first day we met with Ranj, she was professional and gave us great ideas! She is an extremely warm-hearted and kind individual and went above and beyond for us. I am not the easiest client to deal with, as my brain is sometimes all over the place, but Ranj was extremely patient and gave me plenty of options to choose from. She responded to all of my phone calls and many emails promptly and was always available. We don’t know how we would’ve completed our remodel without her! We would highly recommend Ranj to anyone looking to hire an interior designer!

Ranj is an exceptional Interior Designer! Decor is not a forte of mine, and I recently moved into a penthouse, and I wanted my place to look fabulous. When I read the reviews from clients of Ranj, I was most impressed and contacted her to set up our phone consultation. During our call, I was immediately drawn to her positive energy and superior skills. In addition, I looked at her designs online, and they were classy, gorgeous, and elegant! From first meeting Ranj, she took meticulous notes and measurements, showed me how to utilize every nook and cranny of my penthouse, and provided wonderful feedback. During the process, she kept me updated on the status of my project and made sure that she did not buy anything until I approved it. Her recommendations were beautiful, and she turned my penthouse into a gorgeous oasis! With any questions I had, she responded in a timely manner; she always had a smile, and even went the extra mile to ensure my new place is just the way I want it. Her professionalism, vivacity, superior interior design skills, heart of gold, and strong desire to make sure I was an elated customer are all reasons why I give her 5 stars! I promise that if you book Ranj, you will not be disappointed. She is a class act, and a true definition of quality!

We were in the process of a whole house renovation and when it came time to choose finishings for the kitchen and bathroom, we were overwhelmed with the amount of choices and styles . We were lucky to be able to find Ranj! She was very professional and affordable! She was very easy to work with and she gave us multiple options that she thought would fit the house. She was also able to come up with new ideas such as a patterned kitchen backsplash over the range! Ranj was very prompt in her responses and receptive to us requesting different options when we wanted something else. and our style was such a great interior designer to work with! She was very easy to deal work with and the nicest person! We loved Ranj and cannot wait to work with her again in the near future!

Just purchased a home and wanted to change the dated exterior. Hired Ranj to help me pick out a new color scheme. She was very fast and responsive; within an hour of messaging her, she got right back to me. The following day we setup a 30 min call to go over my design style, vision, and what I wanted to accomplish. Within 2 days she got came back to me with 2 fantastic choices! She was able to send the PDF rendering of the colors over a photo of my house which helped tremendously for me to visualize. I asked her for a 3rd option, which she did for me for an additional hour of fee. I highly recommend Ranj for her style and professionalism.
