Interior Design reviews in Oakland


I am really on a budget so I am doing some of the things that she suggested and then we will get together on window coverings and furniture. I am doing as much as I can myself and I am checking in with her on all decisions. She is really responsive, so I can move forward and get the my apartment ready for new furniture additions while using a lot of pieces that I have and want to keep. I love how she responds to emails quick and decisive. I can tell she is really talented and creative and she is sensitive to my needs.
We are currently in progress on my home.

was delightful. She was punctual and very professional while also being a lot of fun to work with. She listened to my overall goal, and then got to work moving furniture around. she worked non-stop for 3 hours and turned my mediocre living room into a much more charming space. I love the way it looks, and will like it even more after it's painted with the colors she recommended. She gave me ideas for area rugs and additional wall art, but the fascinating thing was to see how she transformed the room by simply rearranging the things I already have. She has a great eye for design and such a nice personality that I would happily consult with her on other rooms in my house.

I first met

seven years ago when looking for a designer to help in refurnishing my home. Due to unexpected circumstances, I didn’t follow through with refurnishing, but remembering how easygoing, professional, and unintimidating

was, I contacted her again in 2010 to stage my home for sale. We talked briefly about her ideas, but after seeing photos of

worked well with my agent – understanding there was a tight turnaround time,

adjusted her schedule to meet the agent’s timeline, she incorporated the agent’s ideas in her design plan, and she ensured that the date of staging was convenient in my schedule. I arrived home around 8:00p on that date and was overwhelmed by the transformation of my home. I remember walking around each room awestruck by

’s work – everything tastefully coordinated, beautiful color schemes, paintings on walls, flowers in vases, carefully placed eyeglasses near a pencil and pad in the office, the finest details I wouldn’t imagine. I considered not selling the house if I could keep the staging!!! Friends who attended the first open house commented on how amazing the décor looked, one friend so excited by the color

chose for the kitchen walls that she had her kitchen painted in that same color. I was in escrow within the week of that open house.
When I moved into my condo, I contracted with

to do the interiors. I started from scratch with a remodel, so there was quite a bit of early work to be done –choosing paint colors for the walls, hardwood and carpet flooring, window coverings, and hardware for kitchen cabinets.

established a great rapport with my contractor, which was essential to the process. When the remodel was complete,

helped me select furnishings for every room in the two-bedroom condo. Again, I started from scratch, bringing only my piano and grandfather clock.

started the process by asking questions about my style – what colors do I like, do I have traditional or modern tastes. Having no style to articulate, except that, having grown up in Hawaii, I was interested in an Asian/tropical feel, I showed her photos of my Hawaiian ‘dream home’, and that was all she needed.

, with her

eye for style, proceeded to find pieces that reflected an Asian or Polynesian feel, yet, had traditional features – I think she referred to my style as “transitional” – and what could have been an onerous project turned out to be a most pleasurable experience for me.

made it so easy by doing the leg work, presenting me with options, never trying to hard sell, always respecting my opinions (actually valuing my opinions and ideas!), and making sure that she was incorporating into the design my decorative items, those personal treasures that “make the condo home”.
Aside from her professional expertise and approach (always on time for appointments, answered calls and text messages within an hour, responded to email within 24 hours, flexed her schedule to accommodate mine on many occasions, transparent and fair in her billing practice, etc.),

is kind, generous, and has a great sense of humor. I cannot recommend

has a wonderful ability to make a room work. She designed and put together a wonderful, dreamy bedroom. She added elementsthat we never woud have considered, and every one of her ideas was a smash hit. She identified colors and little changes that made all the difference in the way the rooms feel, as well as funishings that are beautiful and unique.
She is a pleasure to be around and her staff is hard working and responisve.

She has yet to locate one for me yet, but I feel she will do an excellent job. She has done several jobs for me in the past and as always performed well. She is really creative and very artistic. She is helping me with the interior of my house and gives me ideas that I would have never thought of. She never leaves you waiting and is quick to respond with any request. She has a fun personality and keeps things light, but is very industrious. She is very good at what she does.

She made a room design for the living room. She purchased appropriately sized furntiture for a room with very unusual dimensions. I'm very happy with her work. She gave me three choices within my price range and the furniture fit the uniquely sized room perfectly. She is very professional and prompt. There is no project too small. She will always take the time to go over intricate details. I needed a bathroom stool and I don't have the time for little decisions and she found three choices and it looks perfect. Although she is based in San

I was comfortable the moment I met Nick. He understood my vision and I felt confident that his color recommendations would really pull together my entire renovation. I was more than satisfied. He was on time, prompt, easy to work with and I just loved his ideas. If I hadn't hired Nick, I would never have such a warm and inviting home like I do today. Every single person that enters my home comments on how warm my place looks. It is all due to Nick and his design team. He put me at ease and coordinated everything with my contractor. I was lucky to have everything go so smoothly and love coming home each day to such colorful home!

Not well. Nice lady, but didn't listen to us. Despite telling her that we were on a budget for our kitchen remodel, she continued to design an A-list kitchen for us. We wound up doing our own design with a guy from Floorcraft working on a computer modeling program. For free.

We made an appointment by phone. She was prompt and professional. She listened to what my spouse and I wanted and then looked over the room carefully. She discussed the pros and cons of each topic to help us come to our own decision, and then, when pressed, made a recommendation. She is always clear that decorating choices are personal taste choices, but she tried to show us how to tie the room visually and architecturally to the rest of the house. I don't recall the exact cost but it was a very reasonable hourly rate. A few days later she dropped off some countertop samples for us.

is a delightful man. Came over right away for estimate. Called when he said he would to arrange a time to do work. Was prompt. work completed in timely manner. Very pleased with result. His estimate, and final cost was roughly half of the least expensive estimate I got for the work. His carpentry skills are quite impressive.
