When I first met with Jody I had no idea what to expect out of this whole experience. I was pregnant with my first child, my husband and I had just purchased our new home and had planned to do some MINOR renovations which we couldn't wait to get started on. We knew we needed to bring someone in to help us because this was our dream home and we wanted it to be perfect. I sat down with Jody and showed her our plans and right away she was throwing ideas my way and giving me that vision that I just couldn't grasp on my own. I'm not sure if it was her expertise of the trade or her amazing personality that made me feel so comfortable but we clicked right away and I basically hired her on the spot. Fast forward a month or so and our MINOR renovations unexpectedly left us with a chimney and some walls(that also ended up being torn down.) My husband and I were in a panic and had no idea how we were going to manage this project but thanks to Jody we did and we now live in the home of our dreams. Jody helped with every little detail of our home. She sat with us for hours going over floor plans, different furniture lay outs, looking at tiles, fabrics, wall coverings, different finishes for all our appliances/furniture, window treatments, lighting, carpets, wood floor samples and stains. You name it she did it! She perfected each paint color in our home to a point where we get compliments all the time on how nicely everything flows and how beautiful all the colors are. She knew our style from some images she requested I send her and from there on she was on point with every little detail of our home. When we weren't loving something..which was rare... she would always say "You can't like it, you have to LOVE it..we will find something else, don't rush!" And she would do just that, sometimes by the next day. I am an extremely indecisive person and Jody was always so patient with me. She would come to our house with a ton of samples, I would make a decision and then call her before she had even gotten home to tell her I wasn't sure if I made the right choice. She would laugh, because at this point she already knew that phone call was coming and she always said "Don't rush, I will find some other options and you let me know what you want to do." And she did just that and ironically I would always go with what she had originally chosen to show us. We would text her at all hours of the day/night with images and thoughts and she always got back to us within no time at all and always reassured us that our home was going to be perfect and that there was nothing to worry about. Our conversations more than likely ended up totally off topic and we would end up chatting for a while about everyday stuff which was also something I always appreciated and admired about her. No matter how busy her life was, she made time for us and our project. Jody put us in contact with a ton of great vendors and held our hands throughout the way with each one of them. If there was a mix up in our order I would call her and within minutes she had already contacted the vendor and got back to us with an answer/solution. She would go out of her way to pick up items that we needed and would deliver them to us right away and the same went for if we needed to return something to a vendor. There was never a favor we asked of her that she said no to and at times I don't know how she did it with a smile on her face because we were extremely needy! Jody helped us achieve the home of our dreams and we will forever be grateful for all of her hard work. We love working with her and will continue to do so for all the smaller decorative details of our home and we plan on asking for her expertise again when we fill up our other spare bedroom. She made our home building/decorating experience fun and less stressful, we truly don't know how we would have done it without her. Besides Jody being the best at what she does: she is personable, kind, witty and extremely down to earth and an absolute pleasure to work with. I'd say her only flaw is that she is a Boston Red Sox fan :)
I met with Nanette for a consultation. When she looked around at my home that has been gutted due to the tidal surge of Hurricane Sandy, I think she was a bit taken aback. But about 15 seconds later, she was brimming with enthusiasm and creative ideas. I've hired Nanette to transform 3 out of the 4 rooms that were destroyed by the flood. I know that Nanette's ideas and efforts will help turn my dreams into realities. August 29, 2013: An update to my review in February I hit the jackpot when I hired Nanette Baker to help me with the interior design. This woman is a magician. She listened carefully to my ideas and showed me pictures to ascertain my tastes and preferences. After getting a sense of what I wanted, Nanette presented me with suggestions that were thoughtful, doable and elegant. Nanette has a knack for finding the most beautiful fabric, furniture and accessories. She does most of the leg work herself, but also works with an incredible network of talented professionals. When Nanette started working with me, all she saw was sheetrock and subfloors. Our entire living space was barren and raw. Nanette uses a computer imaging to integrate photos of actual rooms with renditions of how the finished rooms would look with the vision she has in mind. This has been a godsend for someone like me who has trouble visualizing. We started with a gorgeous rug she found for the t.v. room. We then built the whole room around the style and colors of the rug. The room is now a masterpiece. People walk in, sit down and dont want to leave. The t.v. room flowed into a room I hoped to make into an office. Nanette recommended Custom Closets Direct and this room is now the most amazing and functional 2 person home office. Our last challenge was the living room. From the window treatments (done by Barry at Silhouette Window Treatment) to the sleeper sofa, lamps, carpet, custom pillows and more, the room is now beyond magnificent. I've spent the last few weeks showing off my new home to friends and family. They have all oohed and aahhed and are amazed at the transformation. We were not lucky to have been flooded, but we have been incredibly blessed to have found Nanette. She is a true treasure.
Ralph did a beautiful job with my front steps!!
What did Elaine Curley Urban help you with? Where was the job? How long did it take? I am a contractor who interviewed Elaine and hired her to assist on the task of remodeling and updating a 1960s ranch in the Silvermine section of Norwalk. The project included the total remodel of 3 baths, kitchen and new family room addition as well as updating all materials within the house. Elaine selected the color palette and style theme for the home. Elaine provided the vision that would bring the house to a totally desirable market and culminate with a sale. She understood how to entice and expand our target market. The house sold immediately, just as the completion date neared. Elaine worked with me for a period of 3 ½ months. What impressed you about the service? Did Elaine Curley Urban go above and beyond? Was Elaine Curley Urban on time? How was the quality of the work? Elaine worked proactively to insure details and quantities were correct. She worked compatibly with tradesmen, communicated clearly and offered budget saving ideas where possible. Her attention to the job was unwavering. Elaines interior design skills are superior and impressive. Her knowledge of construction is very accommodating and her presence on the job site was a valuable asset. I am very pleased with Elaines professionalism and I look forward to hiring Elaine for my next project.
Danielle Relyea of Mill Road Design is wonderful to work with. Very professional, respectful and provided great vision. I would totally recommend Mill Road Design.
Phyllis worked with my husband and me on designing a living room and dining room area in our new apartment at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in White Plains, NY. Phyllis was not only extremely competent and knowledgeable, but very creative as well as very reliable and personable. We had interviewed three other potential interior decorators/designers for this project, and Phyllis was far and away the most impressive of that group. Her excellent work confirmed our confidence in her and we would highly recommend her to others who, like ourselves, demand highly professional and dedicated client service.
Donna works with you....she will do whatever your design is! Never be afraid to work with her....she will 'hook' into your style and just go with it. She did my living room, dining room ,kitchen and bedrooms and bathrooms. Oh my Gosh...she has done my entire home.....and I will have her back in a minute. She is amazing. As a gift to my kids who recently bought a home...my gift to them was DONNA...need I say more? She has a wonderful group of workmen who are above and beyond what I have been used to. They are wonderful...and aside from being craftsmen beyond belief...they will water your plants, walk your dogs....etc. They are amazing craftsmen...I recommend them and Donna wholeheartedly. When my son got married, their gift was Donna. Need I say more?
Open Square: Architecture & Interior/Industrial Design is an absolutely amazing privately owned company. The two masterminds behind the creative designs are Mihai and Camelia. Not only are they professional, but they go above and beyond to make their client's dreams a reality. Recently, they just finished the implementation of the design for my one-bedroom apartment. With limited space and resources, Camelia and Mihai were able to assess what I wanted and built the design around my budget. The process was very streamlined: they sat down with me in my apartment, took measurements and asked me questions of what I wanted my apartment to look like. They started with color and picked out several colors that resonated with me. The colors inspired the design of each room; each having its own charm. We chose apple green for the kitchen; a color that invigorated the senses. The focal wall in the living room was painted mulberry; one wall that filled the room with positive energy. For the bedroom, Camelia loved the built-in molding, separating the ceiling from the walls and wanted to highlight it. That room was painted slate (wall and ceiling included, leaving the molding white) promoting serenity, peace and relaxation. I also told them my need for storage and they incorporated functional pieces, shelves and furniture, in order to facilitate my request. As we began the transformation process, Camelia intermediately sent me emails to review unique pieces of furniture and accent items that she suggested we integrate into the apartment to give its distinctive atmosphere. They worked diligently, timely and always kept the lines of communication open. The final product: a magnificent space that not only embodies my personality, but created a place I could call home that exudes endless imagination and positive energy. I have never seen an apartment in NYC like mine and I am in love with it. Camelia and Mihai were able to create something so unique and delivered an unmatched client experience. My space was designed specifically for me and me only. Its a place more than home; they took my dreams and made it a reality. They are the only duo that I know that could have possibly made it happen and for that I am very thankful I found them.
Diane is a blessing to the world. Diane offered great comfort by connecting me with my Best Friend that passed away last year. Within the first 30 seconds she brought his name forth. She assured me that he is still with me cheering me on through my life. Diane was very specific about my work situation and that it was only temporary because I would not be there for long. She said I would be transitioning mid August. I actually did just lose my job , but I have faith that everything will be ok. I guess I should have asked what was next. Lol ! Diane was very thorough and we had more time for her to answer any additional questions .... I was so blown away that I could not think of anything else at the time. Diane is filled with love and light and It was one of the most profound experiences of my life. Thank you ~
Julie came to our rescue when we decided to remodel our teens bedroom. She had amazing ideas and follow through. Not only was every thing done within the designated time frame but she stayed within budget while offering us the highest quality of furnishings. We have already made plans to have her remodel the adjoining bathroom this Spring. Can't say enough great things about her; she was just wonderful!
