Introduction: I design for residential, institutional and commercial spaces and really feel, as my logo states, "Your Space, Your Story." I want to work with you to realize your vision, not mine. I think my work stands out because I really listen to my clients. I hear time and again from people who say "the last designer I hired didn't understand my budget or needs, they only wanted to create their vision. You really understand what I'm trying to do." I also have managed construction projects for years, which gives me a unique perspective. I know what's going on behind the walls. This knowledge enables me to help you keep to your budget and avoid hidden costs. I tend not to design to "trends." I think trends are better suited to shoes and handbags. I want to work with you to create something beautiful, comfortable and lasting for YOU. I love it when I'm working with a client and they say "wow, I never would have thought of that, that's a great idea." I think sometimes just having someone in with a fresh eye and some creativity can make a real difference. I'm not looking to have my clients buy all new things, I love rooting around in their garage or basement and having them re-purpose something. I also love to reuse things, either through consignment shops or antique galleries. The best part of my job is standing there at the end and saying to the client "wow, look what we've achieved together!"

Interior Design

Elizabeth came to my home for a consultation for rearranging things in my home as I approach the "empty nest" and wish to make my home more focused on myself, rather than teenagers. I had never hired an interior designer before and was a bit nervous. Elizabeth immediately made me feel comfortable, and was both very professional, as well as personable, She was able to get a good sense of my lifestyle, and kept her suggestions very well tailored to my needs and my budget, even considering my pets in her design plan. She gave me great ideas to make use of things I already had in my home with some slight changes, to create new space suited to what I am looking for. Her consultation turned this project into something that I look forward to as easy, affordable, and fun!! and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an interior designer.

I'm beyond thrilled with Elizabeth's talents, deep knowledge and work ethos. I hired her to help with a truly massive whole house remodel after a fire, including kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, all lighting fixtures, wall and window treatments and tough rug decisions. I had a million ideas and literally over 1,000 pictures pinned on Pinterest. Elizabeth helped me sort through and settle on what was best. She also brought her own ideas to some key spots such as gorgeous antique sconces for the living room. Lastly, she gave a huge amount of on-site guidance to the contractor, including designing a complex closet, and even running to Lowes herself to grab marble shelves when the contracted deliverables didn't work out. Plus, when needed, she supplied her own subcontractors including an expert high-end wallpaper installer, a great upholsterer, and even a handyman who helped me unpack, hang art and move back in. Elizabeth is one of the most organized people I've ever met. She used spreadsheets to keep track of projects and supplied electricians with long, ever-updated punch lists. She was willing to get up insanely early in the morning to meet subcontractors at the house. And she rolled up her sleeves to help haul cardboard boxes out to the trash pile. Many designers I talked to only want to give your their vision for a project. Elizabeth respected and even I think enjoyed that I had a vision of my own, and worked night and say for several months to make it a reality. She also kept me from making several design mistakes that I was too inexperienced to see on my own. I strongly recommend her.

I’ve worked with Elizabeth Randall for about eight years years on interior design projects including historic academic buildings and residence halls at Harvard University. She has a real gift with color and design and understands what it means to create a warm, exciting and functional space. She is industrious, organized, ethical and open-minded. Her projects have been exclaimed at and enjoyed by many. I would recommend her without reservation for any design work you need.

Elizabeth came to my house to help me with a makeover in my master bedroom and with my fire place. Her ideas were thoughtful and quite ingenious to say the least! She educated me by describing my current design concepts and teaching me what other types of materials would go along with it. She came up with a few easy solutions to make my fireplace look more updated without completely replacing it. I am so excited to get started! I would highly recommend Elizabeth for any interior design needs!

I would like to start by saying thank you Elizabeth for putting together great boards together at the last minute to present at our Annual Meeting last week. Elizabeth is a professional with a fantastic personality and sense of humor. She is very knowledgable about design, building, cost points and quality. She is a very listener and understands what a person is trying to accomplish. We look forward to working with Elizabeth on our project and any other future project that requires her assistance. Thank you again, Pond Walk Condo Associations Camille

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try to keep it very simple and very transparent because I feel that sometimes designers have a reputation for playing pricing games, especially when it comes to designer discounts. I receive discounts from many places for all types of things. I pass these discounts directly on to my clients. For my fee I charge a flat hourly rate and do not charge for travel time to the client. I do, however, charge for travel time if I am shopping with the client, or shopping on my own for the client's needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I find the process with each client is different because each situation is unique. However it typically starts with a phone conversation or an e-mail so that I can understand the range of services they would like to have. I encourage them to send me photos prior to the visit so that I understand their spaces better. I also really encourage the use of Pinterest to share ideas and information. My first visit usually takes two or three hours to see their spaces, understand their needs, lifestyles, budget and sense of style. A lot can be accomplished in this time frame, whether it is looking at color palettes, determining needs in furniture, lighting, etc., and even rearranging furniture. After my initial visit if the client needs more of my time I can put together a proposal for estimated services, or I can simply work by the hour, whatever works best for the client.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked with a wide range of customers, from some just wanting a fresh eye to help rearrange what they have, to others who are starting over and want to reuse very little. I am happy to help in either situation.
