For the past couple of years I wanted to update my living room furniture, layout and color. While visiting furniture stores and looking at all the configurations and sizes I realized that I did not have the knowledge to decide on the right pieces to make my living room harmonize. I decided to contract with Creative Spaces Interior Design Inc., the best decision ever! Working with Debby Adelman was a delight. Since I did not know what I wanted (only what I did not like), Debby was instrumental in proposing a concept, layout and colors. She used some of my more treasured pieces in the overall design and honored my wish to have a more modern look. During the whole process Debby handled all the measuring, ordering, coordination of the deliveries and set-up. She also was considerate of financial limitations. I am very happy with the final outcome and will enjoy my “new” living room. Thank you Debby – could not have done it without you.Nov 25, 2018Creative Spaces Interior Design, Inc.'s reply
Thank you so Ga for allowing me to help you in your home. I’m so happy that you love it. Debby
Debby did excellent work, she totally changed my apartment in a few hours. My new apartment is fully furnished, but still not look good, she made a decoration with photos and flowers, then the whole space was totally changed. See the photo, it looks like a luxury hotel.Feb 18, 2018Verified
Debby spent one short hour with us on her way up from LA to SF, and gave us some wonderful suggestions. Just what we needed. We will try to get her again when she is around our area.Nov 9, 2018VerifiedCreative Spaces Interior Design, Inc.'s reply
Thank you Val. I hope to see you again.
Debby was great to work with. She took time to get to know us and really understand what we wanted to do with our space. She gave us many options in selecting pieces which allowed us to pick our favorites. Our home transformed into a place we can be proud of and Debby played a large part in that.Apr 16, 2018Verified
My boyfriend and I had a tiny budget and no idea how to arrange our apartment. Debby came to us on an hourly rate and gave us all the direction we needed! She is friendly, knowledgable, and creative, and she quickly helped us put together a better plan and a pinterest board with suggested furniture ideas. I didn't know it was possible to get quality design help on a 20-something budget, but Debby did it! Thank you so much, Debby!Jan 16, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have three billing structures depending on the scope of work. A simple design plan with 3D visuals, a Pinterest board, and a budget, I typically charge a flat rate. Consulting projects I typically charge an hourly rate of $125 per hour. For larger projects and project management, that includes all of the above, I charge 15% of the entire budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to meet with my potential clients and get a feel for them, for their style, and their needs. Trust is the most important factor when working with a client. Client's need to feel comfortable with me, and I with them. Most times I am working in a space when my clients are not home and they need to feel secure. That is the primary reason I never charge for the initial meeting.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attended OTIS College of Art and Design and obtained my certificate in Interior Design.
