    Lina did our master bedroom closet. Lina designed exactly what I was looking for. She was also easy to work with and very prompt. We are happy with the quality of the product used and the finish. We look forward to work with you in the future. Thank you Lina!!

    Hired to decorate 3 bedrooms
    Lina was very efficient with her help decorating 3 bedrooms in my house. I sent her photos before her first (of two) visits, and she arrived at the first visit prepared with ideas and products for each room. Unfortunately, it appeared that we were not on the same page in terms of styles. Her suggestions were more artsy or bold than I was ready for, and I felt many of her ideas were impractical with small children involved. To her credit, Lina came back for a second visit with different ideas and products that were largely more in line with my tastes. She followed up after the second meeting by sending links to the products she suggested. We ended up not using many of Lina's ideas, but her suggestions of stores did result in us finding different products at those stores that matched our style better.

    Excellent advises
    We needed some advise on decoration for living room and dining area, Lina provided some excellent ideas and examples what we might use. The rooms looks much more inviting and bright after we adopted Lina's suggestions. Thanks Lina!!

    Lina was extremely professional and knowledgeable. She helped me design my entire home to custom drapes, tile, paint colors, light fixtures, furniture, kitchen and bathrooms. She was a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her.

    Excellent work, full service interior design architect
    Lina did a great job offering full service solutions for our kitchen and dining room remodeling. At the 2nd meeting she had prepared detailed, professionally produced schematics and diagrams showing how the rooms would look. She also provided excellent brochures for fixtures, flooring, and lighting. My wife and I were thrilled with the outcome and would highly recommend Lina for any interior home projects requiring the services of a design architect.

    If I could give 0 stars I would!! So much to say and so little time and space to write everything that went wrong.The bottom line is that she delivered one plan for my 3 rooms that was not functional, nor was pleasing to the eye. I discovered she measured incorrectly one of my rooms and because of it furniture had to be sent back. Wall decoration in all 3 rooms also had to be sent back because it did not fit in the space she chose for it, either it was too small or too large. It was a major hassle and created more work for myself. She did nothing to correct the ideas that I did not like about some parts of her plan. Her "I don't care what you think" attitude was very disconcerting. I am still trying to figure out how to decorate my rooms; meanwhile, she has her money and I have a promise that she will call me back. I am still waiting......

    Lina was wonderful to work with! Her designs were amazing with great detail. She redesigned our dining room and her vision, coupled with what we told her we wanted, came together beautifully from the mosaic stone wall to the furniture pieces and moldings she chose. Lina always returned phone calls and/or emails immediately. She made at least 3-4 visits to our home during the process even though we chose to do the work ourselves. The only advice would be to tell Lina in advance what you envision your budget to be for the entire process. Some of the custom furniture and custom fabric for curtains, etc. can get expensive...shop around if you can. We were able to save $1500 by ordering the mosaic stone through Amazon. Overall I would highly recommend Lina to friends.

    I called Lina because I was desperate to improve the look and function of our new house. Lina was able to transform the house into a much more elegant and functional space in a short period of time. I was impressed with Lina's professionalism and her focus on our project. It was very helpful to have Lina dealing with a large part of the construction and work crew - it took away much of the stress. I have two children and it will take some time to see whether the design will withstand their abuse. It is difficult to balance beauty and practicality when their is a family to consider. I was happy that Lina would listen to those concerns and negotiate change when needed. I am very happy with the way the project turned out. I would have never been able to be as creative and incorporate the beautiful detail the way Lina did. I would definitely recommend Lina for the job!

    Dear Lina, Thanks so much for the amazing design and your attention to detail! You have transformed my home from a dark-heavy environment into a beautiful-light boutique hotel feel! I can't put into words how much happier I am in my own home; it truly feels like my own getaway oasis! I only wish I could post before and after photos for everyone to witness! I have recommended you to my friends and neighbors! Again I can't thank you enough! Rula

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Listening to clients need first. I measure the room required, take pictures of it, draw the floor plan of it per scale and 3 dimantional drawings to show the design ideas, select all furnishings needed for the room, do a design presentation at client s home. Upon that I work on estimating the execution of the job and start executing after that.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
You know? traveling is a key to stay updated! you will get in touch with the outside world, you experience not only new forms and styles in different country but a whole culture. You will have the opprotunity by touching, seeing, smelling and hearing....I travel at least once per year to stay updated.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Average design charge per room is $ 1450. That includes designing the room, drawing the design ideas per scale, selecting the furnishings for the room like accessories, lighting, flooring, tops, hardware, furnitures , rugs......
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Hmm!! I started free hand drawing since I was 7 years old. My sense of art developed even more by time, my mom is a painter, my dad is a furniture merchant, so it is in my genes!
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most commom jobs that I do for my clients is full remodel. But I do take just design/ decorating as well.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Ohh! I am super proud of a job that I did in Brookline last month. The project was desinging a bedroom for a 10 years old girl, it was the best!, came out gorgeous, she loves it ! I did not hire my photographer yet to take picture of it cause I am doing more work in the same house, so waiting to finish at least 2 or 3 rooms before doing that.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hmmm!! ..be careful. Ask for references, call these references. I have met people that consider themselves designers and they are actually just decorators or they are just not designers at all.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish customers will know that design is my passion so if I am designing their room is like I am designing my own!..I give it 100% of my attention and would love that they will have a comfortable and stylish and functional space at the same time. I also wish the customer will know that I have been doing interior design since 1993 therefore I have tons of experience, so they can rest assure that they are in good expert hands :)
