    On the positive side, the window coverings that she made, are made well.
    On the negative side, I found the exact same lighting fixtures that she had recommended almost 50% cheaper at a local retail store than what she had asked me to pay. I also was quoted over a dollar cheaper for tile for the exact same tile at the same store she would have gotten it from.
    Lastly, the colors that I liked and she said would look good, did not match my wood at all. I was hoping, by hiring a professional, that she would have told me, that my colors would not have worked.

    Deborah H. from The Cozy Cottage replied to this review on May 6, 2016


    I would like to thank you very much for your business. I am glad that you like your window treatments.

    Please understand that I have no control over the cost that local store is charging for those light fixtures. The fact that you also found tile for a dollar less than I was offering, is also something beyond my control.

    Regarding the paint colors that we chose for your home, you did have your heart set originally on some very cool gray tones. Once the paint was up on some of the walls, you were able to see this was not as flattering to your woodwork. And if you recall, we revisited the colors and a warmer, more taupe color was a much better fit.

    I do hope that you are able to move forward with your project of creating a cohesive look for your home.

    She helped me coordinate materials and colors throughout our living room, dining room and kitchen. I enjoyed working with her. My fault, but did not quite understand my contract.

    We worked with Deborah Hannon with The Cozy Cottage for a complete remodel of our home. We chose Deb because she promised us that the whole process would be easy because she had a team of contractors that she works with. We are a busy family and didn’t want to be managing our project by ourselves, so this sounded wonderful. It turned out that it was! The contractors that Deb connected us with were a top notch team that communicated with us well, had a commitment of quality, were competitive on cost, and provided an excellent service. As our project grew, each one of them were available to continue and provide great insight to our project and became more than just contractors, but friends that we enjoyed being around and had a great camaraderie with. In addition, Deb really took the time to understand what we wanted in our remodel. She understood that both my husband and my tastes vary, but was able to bring us design options that fit both of our tastes and fit exactly what we were looking for. This process allowed us to continue on our busy lives and make decisions about the project quickly with Deb’s excellent design choices and options. Deb has done so well that we have adopted her into our family as an honorary member. We really truly enjoyed working with her and her ability to take everything we ask and make it happen. I am happy to speak with anybody further if you have any questions.

    Really listens to what I wanted as well as giving suggestions. Lots of wonderful ideas and was able to outline the decorating in stages. Able to come up with ideas that would use heirloom furniture but also incorporate other pieces and retain functionality!

    Deb is so wonderful to work with. She helped us with our drab living room and turned it into a beautiful and classy room that we just love. She has wonderful ideas and worked with our own specific taste. She helped guide us to make the best decision for the room and for our needs. We are so happy to have worked with Deb! Now we have a living room that has become our favorite part of our home. We will be asking for more of her services and input as we continue to decorate/renovate our home in the future and recommend her to everyone who is looking for an interior decorator.

    She was a great person to work with and was able to quickly assess my style and recommend options that will work nicely in our home. we picked out paint colors that look great, and she recommended some nice options for the window. Will likely use again as we continue our remodel.

    Deborah has been great to work with! She has lots of ideas and wonderful sense of style and color. She listens carefully and truly gets to know her clients. I recommend highly!

    Deborah came to my home and walked through the entire layout with me. She really listened to my needs. She then suggested a layout and even furniture types, color and style. Her advice was spot on and inspired me to finally make the changes i knew I needed to but her reiteration of what to change and how easy it would be to do it, really pushed me to do so. I enjoyed working with Deborah and will definitely consult her for my design needs in the future! - Angela

    Deborah is great to work with and provides an array of options to choose from that meet your particular style. She also has a list of well qualified resources to help out with other tasks such as painting, installation and window treatment cleaning and repair. She respected my need to work within a budget and came up with reasonable alternatives.

    Deb was excellent. She made recommendations for our paint, draperies, valances and recovering some of our furniture. She is very creative. The end product has truly transformed our living room, kitchen and dining room. The quality of the draperies and recovered chair and ottoman couldn't have been better or more professionally completed. Deb has a lot of resources to assist with other home projects as well. We will definitely be using Deb again in the future and I would not hesitate to recommend her services.

    Deborah helped us choose wood, colors and a layout plan for our kitchen remodel. We felt comfortable with the help she gave us and appreciate both her professional eye in achieving the feel we wanted and the samples she is providing.

    Enjoyable, enthusiastic, fun. Deborah arrived on a timely basis and went thru my home room by room and gave me more ideas for every room. I only wish I could have recorded her because there was so much information. I am anxiously awaiting her next move.

    Deborah was great. In a brief time she helped me formulate a plan for three rooms and I'm off and running. Thanks, Deborah!

    Deborah was above and beyond my expectations. We invited her into our home for some decorative pieces and art work for our living room. We ended up with new paint, beautiful art work and extrordinary finishing pieces for a very reasonable price. She also had some suggestions for our "not quite finished" master bedroom. She added beautiful trims to our drapery and pillows, then chose an exceptional chest to finish off the room. We now have the "wow" factor we've been looking for. Very classy. Very well done.

    Deborah was very professional throughout the entire process. The colors that were picked worked very well for the home. I will definitely use her again and highly recommend her.

    I have worked with Deborah on several occasions. She has done window treatments, bedding and reupholstered a couple of chairs for me, all beautifully done. I am always impressed with her ability to transform my dreams into reality. She is professional , courteous , hardworking and a pleasure to work with !

    Deborah provided professional consult services for redecorating our formal living room. This project included discussions around color selection for paint, as well as fabric for drapes and the related rod hardware.

    We spent a good amount of time, over multiple sessions, looking at a variety of fabrics for the new drapes. Once we'd finally made a decision for the drape fabric, we went on to discuss the type, color and style of the rods.

    Once all decisions were made, she delivered high-quality drapes in a timely manner, and oversaw the installation process. During installation, we noticed a (manufacturer) flaw in one of the rod brackets. Deborah quickly resolved this with the manufacturer and we received a new replacement bracket very quickly.

    I am VERY happy with the end result of this project, and will be working with her on future planned projects in our home. In addition, I have referred several friends to her.
