Interior Design reviews in Oro Valley


We engaged with a service provider who was too busy for us, didn't listen to or understand our needs, became dismissive and unprofessional when we questioned the first invoice and did nothing to "make it better" when our initial expectations were not met.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure the provider is even licensed to do business -my neighbor recommended her and I thought that word of mouth was a safe option.
The provider bills by the hour, we let her know this was our first time and needed help selecting coordinating colors but wanted to freshen and update the look of the kitchen and surrounding areas but had a limited budget. I had done research online and narrowed my selections and ideas to

subway tiles with no accents, mosaics or linear designs as I considered these too busy and was not interested. I sent images/examples and specifically asked for help with the color selections.
When she returned, she had drawn 5 examples of tile layouts - all using accent tiles, linear or mosaics, and brought samples of this type. She brought some paint samples but postponed specific color selection until the tiles were selected. I was very frustrated and disappointed- especially when she gave us an invoice for $315. I felt she hadn't listened and was also surprised we had to pay before any decisions were made and agreed upon.
I sent an email the next day, expressing my thanks for her work and my disappointment and confusion with the designs she provided- not anywhere near where I was going. I asked if we could work it out to find something more agreeable and

and not exceed $500. She replied she was disappointed I felt this way and said she hadn't even billed for all the hours spent but we should go to pick out the tile at the showroom ourselves and she would be on vacation the next week. We picked 2 options and awaited her return for final selection & color coordination. While she was out I sent updated pictures of the area with a new rug and color ideas.
Upon her return, on a Monday, she emailed, and I responded asking her to come over for final selection, guidance and payment. She did not reply, so the next day I texted her. On Friday, I emailed and asked if she had received the prior 2 messages and if she was no longer available to us. She replied to my message and even said "not sure my vote would make a difference" and "I feel I'm being taken advantage of...To my knowledge I have supplied you with everything you have requested - and more, and it is now three weeks later and I have yet to receive payment. The check is being held in "ransom" for me to come to confirm what you would like to execute. This is not how I like to do business. Perhaps I am not the designer for you. Would be happy to help you with the next steps, but appreciate your professionalism in return."
I was shocked and insulted. In my reply I indicated this was not my intent, but that I thought standard practice was not to pay for anything until you were satisfied and I valued her time. I sent the money (I wish I hadn't) and agreed she was not the designer for us. After spending $315 I feel completely ripped off- over a month later - no tile, no color, no window coverings- a few drawings and printouts from the internet, an invoice and a letter (with my husbands name completely incorrect). What a waste of time and total disappointment.
Now we are on our own to order, install and pick the coordinating paint colors as none of that was delivered.
My advice-do your research, ask for examples of their work, and don't agree to hourly billing- specify a defined scope of work/deliverables, with not to exceed parameters.
Bottom line- if you want a designer that doesn't listen, doesn't care about customer concerns, and is rude - then hire

The colors suggested were excellent and the look was exactly what I was hoping to achieve! I went out on a limb and changed one of the wall colors from what

had suggested, but was only able to live with it for a week before having the painters change it back to the original suggestion. I will be contacting

in the future for more decorating assistance.

Everything went smoothly. The pictures look great and the mirrors are perfect. The great thing about
Oro Valley Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
is that she comes to you. She brings a truckload (literally) of samples and has a great eye when it comes to figuring out what looks good. And it Is really convenient to have her hang them. She has hung so many frames that what would take me hour(s) to do takes her minutes.

If you want the job done well, with the least amount of
