I worked with Carolyn to decorate my new home. I had some pieces of furniture and artwork I wanted to incorporate from my last home, but needed to buy most items. She EXCEEDED my expectations with her creativity, patience and enthusiasm. I think what I appreciated the most was her willingness and ability to explain WHY she liked an idea or design concept and what makes a concept work or not work. I had some very definite ideas about what I wanted, but not how to make it all happen; and then there were times when I didn’t know what I wanted and she never lost patience with me when we were trying to figure it out. If I didn’t like one of her ideas, she never took it personally. She would just come up with another one! My tastes and ideas tend to be out of the box. I needed to be reigned in on some of my ideas and she took the most important ones to me and went running with them. She was very budget conscious, an expert shopper online and in stores, and creative enough to design custom furniture and repurpose other pieces when we couldn’t find what we needed. She was a calming presence through the ups and downs of the process. She got me to think beyond my ideas and taught me a great deal. The synergy between us created something spectacular! We still have some finishing touches to buy which is why I’m not attaching some photos now. I hope to be able to come back and do so later. I received a message this morning telling me this was my last chance to write her review and didn’t want to let the opportunity go by without sharing how wonderful I think she. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!
