Amy did a great job of understanding exactly how we needed our space to function and created a great design to maximize the use of our kitchen and family room areas. She also understood early on the style we liked so her choices always matched our vision. The time and stress we saved by having her narrow down our options and work closely with our contractor was invaluable. I would definitely recommend her.Sep 27, 2017
Amy was great to work with and helped us to navigate a lot of decor decisions as we redecorated the first floor of our home in Arlington, VA. She provided us advice on how to best redo the living and dining rooms, as well as the kitchen -- which included new countertops and a very unique backsplash. She helped us troubleshoot situations that arose with delivery issues and streamlined communication between us and the subcontractors working on all of the projects in our home. In terms of timeline, we initially met with Amy in April, and the job was 95% complete by the end of August, with some furniture deliveries still pending. She did a great job pushing us out of our comfort zone on colors, textures, and decor, and we are extremely pleased with the result. We also appreciated her willingness to meet with us on weekends or evenings since our working schedules do not offer much flexibilty for weekday discussions. She was also able to combine a mix of high-end pieces and low-cost accents in such a way that blended a lot of style into a unique space. Two things that could improve next time would be to get more proctive, regular communciations on projects underway and establishing more concrete budgetary limits in the beginning of the discussions rather than once the project was underway. Having said that, we would certainly use Amy again and feel like our money was well-spent. We love our new first floor and have received many compliments on it as well.Oct 17, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I don't have complicated pricing, as I charge hourly, in addition to the cost of the products. As stated earlier, I carry many wholesales product lines and am able to sell well below retail to my clients.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My interest in interior design was the outcome of creating my own home as a genuine reflection of my personal preferences, lifestyle and aesthetic. After sharing my decorating and designing eye with many of my friends and family, I woke up one day with a clear vision for building my own decorating business. The reality of what makes a home for myself and my family has changed and evolved over time, and I appreciate the opportunities I have to play a meaningful role in serving my clients changing needs and wants throughout their lives.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I often redesign several rooms within one home, selecting furniture, lighting, rugs, accessories and artwork. I also often make selections for bathroom and kitchen remodels (cabinetry, tile, lighting, countertops, hardware, etc).
