    We had the most wonderful experience working with Terry Hopkins Design. Terry helped our newly bought house to feel like a home, by bringing in extra unique touches that I would not have been able to think of on my own. She was very accommodating to my own personal preferences, yet helped me to step out of my comfort zone to explore new, creative ways of thinking. When people visit my home they instantly see a designers touch and ask which designer I used. I would highly recommend her as she is not only friendly and has a great eye for designing to fit your needs, but her prices are very reasonable as well.

    Abi, it was wonderful working with you and John in your new beautiful home. I wish you all years of happiness and prosperity in this new location. I am sorry that I did not get back to you sooner to let you know that I appreciate you taking the time to write a review of Terry Hopkins Design. It was a pleasure meeting and assisting you and your delightful family!

    After living in my new home for two years with blank window treatment I was finally ready for some coverage. I had one thing in mind and when Terry came to my home we discussed what would work BEST for my windows and french doors. I would have made a big expensive mistake if I hadn't had Terry's advice. The window treatment and the color we choose are perfect for the style of my home! I'm slowly doing room by room and Terry is helping with each step. I'm not a decorator and I really don't enjoy this process but with her help and knowledge, I know my home will be warm, inviting and done right the first time. Thanks again Terry

    We had a large living room with pretty furnishings, but the chairs were so uncomfortable that we rarely used the area because the seating hurt our backs. I spoke to Terry about our problem and she ordered two custom chairs with very nice fabric that complemented our living room perfectly and the chairs are very comfortable! We are so pleased with her selections, that I will go back to her when I am ready to replace other furnishings. I would highly recommend Terry to help with any design project; she is an amazing talented woman! Angela Hebert

    Terry Hopkins designed, staged my new home. She did an outstanding job!! She selected everything in my custom made 2900 SF home: All new custom made furniture [living room, family room, den, etc.] all new handmade custom draperies--to match the furniture, handmade comforters, seat covers for my bow windows. She worked with me to select paint colors for the walls, cabinets & granite for the kitchen. When I had an open house--everyone commented on the luxurious, elegant decor---thanks to Terry Hopkins. I have been very pleased with her interior design skill, ability. Constance Halkovich

    Thank you Connie for your great review. I enjoyed working with you and your beautiful home!! Terry Hopkins

    I was recommended to Mrs Hopkins by Thomasville and have to say that she was absolutely wonderful. We had just moved into a new home and I needed someone to do all our window dressings. Mrs Hopkins is not only an amazingly kind and honest lady but also really understood what I was looking for in our home and helped create exactly what I had wanted. Wonderful! I still get compliments :) I would highly recommend Terry Hopkins Designs, it was a wonderful experience and she was very patient throughout the process.

    Kelly, It was wonderful to meet you and Sasan and to work with you on your beautiful home. We were able to work in two phases since you had so many windows and it makes it so much easier in every way. The bones of the home made my job simple and your vision brought it to life. I wish you success in your clothing line and hope to see it all over in the stores. My best to you always. Thank you, Terry

    Hi Terry Just a little note to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you on making my house more than just a house but a "HOME". I enjoy coming home to such a warm and inviting atmosphere due to your expertise and talent, yes I think you have worked your magic again and have come up with a winning combination of style and color. Good job, keep up the good work.

    Don, Thank you for the opportunity to work with you. Without Thumbtack I would have never met you. To think that we are from the same area in Maryland is truly amazing! You have some lovely things that I was able to work around and we were able to furnish the entire house! You are truly a Southern Gentleman. It was my pleasure to meet and work with you. Thank you, Terry

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I work with custom design, there are no two items alike. For example, shutters are more expensive that blinds. Dust ruffles are more expensive than a pillow. Draperies have numerous styles from simple to elaborate. It is on a project by project basis. A custom sofa with quality cushions and fabric is much better that something at a "pre chosen fabric furniture store". So there cannot be a one price fits all situations. I go out to the home and measure when I am doing furniture and windows in the home, and in some cases an installer may need to come out and measure, esp. blinds and shutters or roman shades. For Staging, the pricing goes by square feet and the amount of items in a home. There are estimates, and that I go over with you at the initial consultation. Most of my work is custom.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I just got back from Jacksonville getting nationally certified in staging (and redesign which is what my specialty is). I recently went to one of my vendors and took a continuing education class on carpeting. Early on I was told you either have it or you do not have a design ability, I believe, as long as we have a vision, the rest is easy. I particularly love redesign, (working with what you already have and adding to it to make it fabulous).
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I went to college in New Orleans where I studied art and drama, and attended a private art school in Florida. I have been interested in art all my life. I know how to paint a painting as well as pick a wall color or fabrics. I have a love of fine arts and luckily I have been able to travel to Europe and Asia as well as all over the United States. This shows in my interior design style. I came upon my design ability quite by accident. Even though I originally wanted to pursue fine arts I worked in Banking and as a sales rep for a national company. When I got married and moved to Japan I hired an interior designer, she told me that the only thing she could advise me to do was to become a designer myself when I got back to the U.S. That is what I did.
What types of customers have you worked with?
That is a very difficult question, in design, each day is a new experience. No two people are alike and no two jobs are alike. That is what makes this all so interesting for me.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I was the manager/ coordinator at two national companies. I enjoyed working for several years in the design industry. I really enjoy being on my own now. Most recently I met a gentleman through Thumbtack, he happens to be from the same area in Maryland that I am. I was so pleased that our paths crossed each other and that I could assist him with his new home in Ormond Beach.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The best thing is to invite them to your home for a consultation. Have a file with photos from magazines or the internet as well as information on what you need to accomplish with your project. Exactly what are you expecting, what is your budget, and what time frame are you looking at. Are you getting ready for a special occasion or do you just need to update. What lifestyle do you live, casual, entertain frequetly, large family? All of this will better prepare the answers that you need.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I have been in this business for years. When you hire me for a project I will do my best to make it as effortless as possible for you and your family. I can be as involved as you need me to be.
