Joe was absolutely fantastic. He showed up on time, outfitted with all he would need to mount my two TVs. When he arrived he had me show him both TVs and both walls. Immediately he informed me that the mounts I bought would work from one location in the house but not for the other. He diligently went to work mounting the first TV for which he used the mount that I had purchased off amazon. The mounting was quick and it was perfectly placed. As for the second TV, Joe was so great that he drove from South Boston back to his home in Beacon Hill to get another mount that would work for that space. Joe returned with the new mount, installed it quickly, and positioned it perfectly. Even with having to drive 30 minutes round trip in the middle of the job, Joe still charged me the agreed upon rate. In an age where most people are looking to only do the minimum and then charge the maximum Joe really impressed me. Joe knows his stuff, and definitely the best choice in Boston if you are looking for home theater or TV mounting expertise. Thank you Joe you reinstilled my faith in people, and using sites such as Thumbtack!
Dealing with Marco was a dream. We hired his team to deal with a terrible peeling lead paint problem on the exterior of our 1920s home. Marco was professional and knowledgeable from the moment he arrived to look at the job and was proactive in pointing out things that needed to be done. He gave us a very competitive price and the team worked quickly and efficiently to remove the old paint, fix rotted trim, replace gutters and repaint the whole house. Marco recommended powerwashing the deck and garage while we were at it and I'm so glad we did. The crew was professional and cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. No qualms about touching up anything that we pointed out. The house looks 50 years younger and after dealing with inside renovations over several years I can say its hard to find a contractor like Marco who shows up when they say they will and does what they promise. I wish I had more things to paint - I would hire this company again in a heartbeat.
J Oliveira Design Build is one of the best I have ever worked with. I hired them to paint most a condo that I bought, and they did such an amazing job. Fernando is punctual, kind, affordable, and most importantly, a talented and meticulous painter. The condo looks flawless. Fernando went above and beyond to make sure that everything looked perfect and even installed light fixtures and a bathroom cabinet. He also cleaned the condo as well and did a spectacular job. The condo looks fantastic and if I ever need painting or handyman work completed again, he is the only person I will call. I highly recommend J Oliveira Design Build to anybody looking for their home or business to be painted and/or cleaned.
I worked with Elizabeth after we purchased an 1835 house in an historic district. Some minor repairs were needed, plus a complete repainting of the interior. Elizabeth has a great color sense and the workmen, no - craftspeople - that she provided were fantastic. They all did an outstanding job and Elizabeth supervised them thoroughly with great attention to the tiniest detail. She also had some creative ideas for dealing with the quirks of an old house. Since our means were limited and we like old things, our plan from the beginning was to furnish with vintage pieces from Craigslist & Ebay and antiques from auctions. This caused us to be rejected by other decorators ("We do a lot of ordering," one told me). Elizabeth was completely comfortable with our approach and had many suggestions for sources we were unaware of. She also passed on to us all of the decorator's discounts that she received, which were a huge help. Her rates were very reasonable and she was very clear about her work plan and billing. Elizabeth was very enjoyable to work with - the perfect person for a project like ours.
Clifford did an awesome job redoing my bathroom...worked really quickly and completed the job faster then originally thought. I will definitely be having him do more work in my home! Thank you cliff!!!!
Lina helped me re-decorate my apartment in the city. She had amazing ideas, was extremely resourceful and made the process simple and easy. I highly recommend using Lina!
Great experience - highly professional and on time. Kept me updated regarding time of arrival and status of projects. Best by far in the area.
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Claire to photograph many of her commercial and residential projects. I can tell you from first hand experience that Claire is uniquely talented in both construction management and interior design. That means she is a valuable resource for clients to bring on board as early as the pre-construction phase as well as for the final interior design finishes. She brings her clients a comprehensive vision when she walks into a space from building it to decorating it. While on site with Claire and her clients, it is obvious from their interaction how much they enjoy Claire and their new space. And I enjoy photographing her work and working with her to visually communicate "Claire's Perspective".
January 27, 2015 Heidi helped us with designing and decorating my living room area and the upstairs wall space. This project encompassed purchasing products and furniture, supervising the installation, and making the finishing touches. Heidi is incredibly talented at pulling the space together and executing on the home owners vision. She is incredibly thorough and creative- we had several art pieces that did not fit in standard frames and custom frames would have taken too long and expensive. She created borders with different color to create a dual border frames and the art and photos look amazing. Another thing that impressed me about Heidi is her ability to recommend various items at different price points and recommending where I should spend a little extra for quality vs. where I dont have. The finished living room area and the walls look amazing and we highly recommend Heidi. We will definitely be making personal recommendations to our friends and family if and when they need this type of service. Kristie F.
Sarah has an amazing gift. We hired her several months ago, to guide us through a complete overhaul of our entire house, one room at a time. Initially, we had several designers come up with a concept so we could choose the best one, and hands-down, we chose Sarah because had the best design concept. After asking us questions, she was able to clearly articulate what it was that we wanted and the overall look we were going for. Working with her has been extremely easy. She communicates well, is thorough, detailed oriented, and overall has exceeded all of our expectations.
Igor and his team did a great job rehabbing our deck. They worked double time to be able to get it done in one visit and were kind and courteous to my family and our neighbors throughout.
We hired Juliana, owner of Creative Interiors, on the recommendation from a person that we worked with. This person contracted with Juliana to redecorate the bedroom and living room in their home. They were thrilled with the results, and commented that Juliana did an exceptionally great job. When we renovated our home, Juliana and I went shopping for fabrics for new drapes for the house; new bed comforters; and fabrics for sofas and chairs that we wanted recovered. She is a wealth of information about decorating, and she brought us to shops that we would not have been familiar with without Juliana's help. We also went to an art gallery with her, and we bought a couple of prints and had them framed. Juliana was amazing with the help she gave us choosing frames that looked the best with the prints we chose. She put 100% into helping us redecorate our house. She came to our house and helped us hang the framed prints , explaining the lighting in the rooms and the pros and cons of putting the prints on certain walls. The results were beautiful because of Juliana. Another thing that we really appreciated about her is that she taught us so much about decorating. She explained everything to us as we shopped. No matter how many questions we had, Juliana always had the answers. Juliana is a kind and caring person. She is very easy to work with. She has unending amounts of patience, and accommodated all of our needs. Juliana never cancelled an appointment with us, she was always on time, and her help was invaluable. The characteristic in Juliana that we appreciate so much is her honesty. She never tried to persuade us to purchase anything we did not like. She insisted that we make the final decisions on all purchases. Juliana's words to us were: "At the end of the day, you live in the house and you have to be happy with it." We were happy when it was completed and we still are grateful that we met and worked with Creative Interiors.
I can't say enough about Maureen and her team! We recently sold our home and MLT Design Group was there for us through the whole process, They made great suggestions about what we needed to do to get our home in the best possible shape to sell it for the best price. They did excellent work and by the time they were finished we didn't want to leave!! They were professional, punctual, and went above and beyond throughout the job. Our 20 year old home looked brand new and when Maureen and her team finished staging it we couldn't believe the transformation. I highly recommend them!
Will and his team were highly professional. They arrived early and worked in an efficient manner. The interior designer was also very helpful in selecting fixtures and the vanity. Everything was completed with the upmost attention. I would highly recommend his team to friends and family.
The decorator at Crown & Garland catered to my specific and unique needs when I was working on my home. Having traveled different parts of the world, the ideas proposed and used were of international standard, laced with different cultures and ethnicities. My satisfaction was of the utmost priority to them and this showed in the overall end product. Crown & Garland exudes a certain passion in their work which I could not help but admire. I will recommend this company to anyone who wants to decorate a space be it home, office or childrens' area. You will not regret working with Crown & Garland!
Casey exhibits a level of understanding, professionalism and courtesy that is refreshing and comforting. We enlisted Casey to develop plans to remodel our recently purchased home in 2013 and she far surpassed our expectations. She provided several reasonable options within our budget that fit our lifestyle, and generated plans that our town and GC felt were detailed and precise. My husband and I could not be more happy with our home and we are so very lucky to have had the experience we did working with Casey. We highly recommend her for any architectural and design needs you might need.
Jay did a great job helping us create a functional small addition that blends seamlessly with our 1930's colonial. The importance of feeling that space was always there was not lost on Jay, from the careful placement of windows to align with doorways in the existing home to matching the woodwork in both spaces, Jay did not disappoint! He worked closely with our contractor to ensure the plans were carried out and modified when needed. We couldn't be happier with the end result, including his recommendation for furnishings! Looking forward to having him over for a celebratory refreshment to enjoy our new space.
I was very satisfied with the job you did in I'm my apartment all three room came just as I wanted them to. As a newly single man I need a lady's touch. Thank You C. West
