Residential Testimonials

"I ask myself....how did a postcard from Dee offering a complimentary design consultation result in a decorating project that wasn't a "project" at all? We clicked. Now....I want to show off my entire house not just the public spaces. Her suggestions for cork flooring in our long hallway and master bedroom provided the perfect footing for rugs we recently bought on a trip to Turkey. She likes color...we like color. Best of all...it was fun." - Jessica Dean, Geneva, IL

"Dee was a joy to work with from the beginning of my home building project to the end: from the home design to the final exterior paint color or as Dee said "the icing on the cake." She inspired and guided my own creativity to build and decorate a truly magnificent one of a kind home: the home of my dreams that is truly me. With the help of her artistic eye, and her skills and resources I have a warm and beautiful home." - Nancy O'Brien, St. Charles, IL

She has both a wonderful eye for color and the ability to come up with suggestions for any design issue. Dee is a joy to work with and we highly recommend her." - Nancy and Ed Malek, St. Charles, IL

"Dee did a fantastic job in my home in Sewickley, PA.  She designed my new wood paneled office which includes a spectacular wood beamed ceiling.  I just love the way it turned out.  In addition, she selected all the paint colors, wall coverings and drapery fabric which flow beautifully from one room to the next.  I particularly love the chocolate brown which she selected for the master bedroom. Her creativity and ability to visualize how small changes can make a big difference amaze me. I would highly recommend Dee to anyone who wants to take their home to Architecture Digest Status". - Frank Archinaco, Sewickley, PA
