I couldn't ask for a better designer than Peter. He listens, sticks to budget, makes suggestions that align with your style, and is fun to work with. I looked forward to every moment spent with him. He will deliver on your ideal design needs.Apr 4, 2016Verified

Peter was awesome to work with. His ability to understand my own stylistic preferences and use that knowledge to guide me through the decorating process produced a result that I am thrilled about. He was very timely and accommodating as well as extremely conscious of my taste and budget. Highly, highly recommend.Nov 7, 2014Verified
Peter helped me lay the foundation to what will become my dream place. We talked extensively about different furniture layouts and he took the time to explain what different styles meant (contemporary/modern and etc) and answered all the questions I had. I work 8-4 M-F so I was pleased that he met me on my schedule. I decided to part ways with Peter instead of having him do my entire place because he set me on a good enough path that I felt like I could finish it on my own. I didn't expect the initial drawing to take more hours than the retainer fee, but I am still happy with what I got.Aug 28, 2014Verified
Peter was great to work with. I didn't have the time, talent, or inclination so I hired Peter to design the living space in my condo. After measuring the space and taking the time to understand my own personal tastes and what I was trying to accomplish, he mapped out several different design schemes. Once we decided on a scheme, he presented various options for each piece of furniture, sourcing things from off-the-run stores that I didn't know about and otherwise would not have visited. While always taking into account my ideas, I felt he provided honest feedback and didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. I couldn't be happier with the end product, and it's something I never would have been able to accomplish without his expertise. I will hire Peter again for my next project and can recommend him without reservation.Aug 18, 2014Verified

- What types of customers have you worked with?I offer both full design services and design consultation services on residential projects and small commercial spaces. A full design service project typically includes furniture selection, space planning, paint selection and accessory selection. I also work with selecting artwork, coordinating construction installations such as tile specification and cabinetry and the space planning of either new or demolished walls.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?When hiring a designer, you want to look for someone that not only knows how to put together the look you desire for your space, but is also experienced in the technical side of the work and has a good understanding of functionality. The portfolio is a good place to look for the visual side of the job, whereas knowing whether or not your designer has studied design in an academic setting is a pretty good indicator of technical knowledge and expertise in spatial planning.
