About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am very honest with my clients and am able to design spaces that will stand the test of time. I carry many wholesale lines of products and am able to sell them well below retail to my clients. This is a huge perk to my clients.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love trying to meet the needs of each and every client and figuring out what they want even if they don't exactly know. I take great pride in my work and get a huge amount of satisfaction when I have transformed a space into something the client would not have done him/herself.

    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.

    My post divorce home is genuinely representative of my style and overall vision, and is a very happy place thanks to Amy. She was able to use one of my favorite art pieces as an inspiration for creating a gorgeous family room: furniture, accessories, paint color and fabric selection. We had a blast! Our next project is my Master bedroom and I can't wait to get started. It's not an overwhelming process with the eye and expertise of a professional like Amy Schwartz.

    I won Amy in a silent auction and it was the best thing I ever bid on!! Amy has totally changed my life and my house—she has made my house so warm and inviting—she found a style for me that I didn’t even know I had. I love everything we’ve done together and even when I’m not sure about something I just go with it and sure enough Amy makes it amazing. Amy helped me envision, design, and complete the bathroom of my dreams. You’d be crazy not to use Amy to help you in your home!!

    Amy helped me choose light fixtures for my redesigned kitchen, and they made a huge difference in the room. She had great suggestions, great choices of fixtures, and the prices were affordable. I would absolutely use her services again.

    Amy is so talented with a terrific eye for color. She has done many projects for me but the one I love the most is our redone dining room. She helped me pick out fabric for and design the most beautiful shades, they make the whole room! I would definitely work with her again.

    I contacted Amy to help us redesign our master bathroom. She had great ideas and was very easy to work with. She listened to what we wanted in a bathroom and built these ideas into a beautiful design. She also kept us within our budget! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to redesign a room knowing they will have fabulous results!

Q&A

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).
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I redecorated a client's living room from head to toe and the end result is gorgeous! She can't stop raving about it and sits in this beautiful, revamped room just to relax and admire it.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hiring a designer is a very personal decision, as you are counting on someone to get a sense of your lifestyle, needs, etc., so I would say you should make sure your personalities align since you will be spending a lot of time with that person.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That I have a tremendous amount of energy and that I love my job! I am truly rewarded when I am able to satisfy a client's needs.
