I met with Christine for interior design work and was incredibly impressed. She has a wonderful sense of style and was able to capture my personality perfectly with her design recommendations. She has an attention to detail and was very generous with her time -- coming over multiple times to ensure the items were just right. She acted like it was more than just a "design job" but really important to her that I was pleased with the transformation. She is a wonderful decorator and I highly recommend her!!!! She is also a jack of all trades and even acted as a handy-man to remove chair cushions to take for upholstery and install a new light fixture!Aug 11, 2016Verified
I ended up going with a flat rate design project that Christine offered and am very glad that I did. She came to my house to discuss my kitchen remodel and then came up with a space plan and selected appliances, flooring, countertops etc. for my consideration. She did a great job and had ideas that none of the other designers I spoke to had! I don't consider myself someone easy to please as I tend to be a perfectionist, but she put in a lot of effort and has a great sense of design. I am continuing to use her on this project and am planning on getting her involved in some future bathroom remodels.Nov 17, 2015Verified
Christine is an artist. She has a great sense of design and color. I made changes to my dining room, living room, den, and entry. There were many obstacles to work around and she did this with grace, humor, and tact. All my calls, emails, texts, were answered promptly. I appreciated her tact in dealing with existing furnishings and the needs of my family.She helped to guide me to the best choices in furnishings and accessories. I loved working with Christine. I highly recommend her design services.Nov 25, 2014Verified
Christine helped me design my Moroccan style living room and the dining area in my kitchen. She is highly professional and reliable. She showed an amazing ability to listen and to understand what I wanted even when I didn't really know how to express it clearly. She helped me make better choices that fit my idea for the project and my budget. I will definitely use her again for future projects.Sep 7, 2014Verified
I enjoyed working with Christine on the staging of my listing. She was open with her pro tips, timely with her execution of the project and flexible with any changes to the schedule or feedback. I would also add that I enjoyed seeing her artistic direction take form and shape—she really has a grasp on tasteful staging & design!Oct 9, 2019HAENEN DESIGN STUDIOS's reply
Dear Jenny, thanks sooo much for your 5 star review! It made my day :-)
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Depending on the scope of the project we charge by the hour, or a flat fee per room/space to develop a comprehensive design plan (space planning, cad drawings, flooring, wall color, surface materials, furniture, window treatment and lighting selections as well as an estimated budget.) If you want us to implement the design we either charge an hourly rate, or a percentage of the total budget. This is something we discuss during our first complimentary meeting.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We sit down for about 5 minutes and get acquainted. We talk about your particular design project and needs and look at the space. As we go along we take notes and give you some of our thoughts on how we can realize your inspiration. Taking the time during that first complimentary visit is important to get an idea of how we work, because we will be working together for the remainder of the project.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a Master's in Fine Art from the Netherlands, where I was born. With my Interior Design Certificate from OTIS College of Art and Design and more than a decade in fine art framing and conservation matting, my overall art background provides me with the unique skills to be an effective Interior Designer, Art Consultant and Color Consultant.
