"I like to decorate my home myself, but I wanted some professional advice/suggestions. Lisa was flexible and willing to provide only the services I needed, which was not the impression I felt from other interior designers I had previously contacted. Her prices were much more reasonable than other designers, which helped me take the leap and hire a professional.
She helped me choose wall paint for several rooms. Every color suggestion she gave me was spot on! I wasn't sure about the living room color she chose, but it turned out be exactly what I wanted! It compliments the existing colors in adjacent rooms and really brightened up a dark living room. I'd been wanting to paint my old, outdated and dark fireplace, but didn't have the nerve until Lisa gave me the ok! She chose the color and once again, it was a home run! I can't wait to finish decorating above the mantle and painting the backs of the bookcases that flank the sides of the fireplace. She gave me a great little sketch to get me going. I will work on that this summer.
I would have never had the nerve to paint my office/family room black without her advice. My neighbor (who is super cool and always on trend) liked it so much, she called me a week later to ask if I would mind if she copied the look! (I should also add that it's not a straight black, so you might want talk to Lisa before you go out and buy black paint!)
I liked working with Lisa because she listened to what I wanted. If I wrinkled my nose at something, she knew exactly when to go in another direction or to explain her thinking, which was always right on! I will be spending the next few months following through with some of her other suggestions (curtains,...) and can't wait to invite her back to give me some more. I would also like to have her help me design a stunning foyer when my budget allows and I get the time to strip 1980's wallpaper!
Thanks Lisa, for helping me pull things together! I also appreciate the fact that you've been willing to work with me at my pace. I'm looking forward to working with you again soon!"
