“Working with Carol was one of the best things we ever decided to do. Carol stepped in and helped us upfront with some difficult design decisions and demonstrated her expertise right from the start.

Carol's honed design skills are quite impressive. She listened carefully to our goals, lent her expertise to virtually every room of our house and helped us accomplish our vision for our home. She was able to take our ideas and with her guidance make them materialize. She kept us on pace with respect to our time schedule and was always available to work hands-on during selection and installations.

Her expertise truly shines when it comes to difficult design situations – she is creative, energetic, budget sensitive and very attentive to detail.

Most importantly, we are so happy with the outcome! Our home is a haven thanks to Carol's talents.”

“Carol, Carolyn and I would like to thank you for your help in turning our family room into a relaxing and inviting space. Your choice of color for the walls added warmth and at the same time brightness. Your choice of fabrics was exceptional; our sofa is brand new again. The accent pillows as well as the chair seats near the library table pulled a disjointed room together and made it unified. The off white cabinets reflect light and offer the added space we needed for storage. We especially like the glass panel inserts in the doors over the bar. The bar area appears to be more open and airy. Changing the lighting in the room was most inventive. The smaller can lights, offer more consistent lighting and better illumination of our artwork. Most importantly, we want to thank you for considering our individual tastes and incorporating our ideas, with yours, into a room that we can all take pride. Thank you for your time, your friendship and your expertise.”

“I met Carol after contacting the American Society of Interior Designers of San Diego to have a designer come to my beach cottage home. My interest was to have someone offer suggestions on color schemes and furniture placement. During our first meeting , Carol was very excited about my space and helpful in her suggestions. She understood the type of beach home I wanted. I trusted her so much that I implemented every suggestion. After completing the painting, Carol came back and using her expertise and my accessories, she transformed the rooms into a fresh new home that I love. Carol provided a classy beach home that I couldn't be happier with. I would call on her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to my friends.”
