we were interested in interior design and exterior design help with paint selection. we received a lot more.
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
helped us understand our color palette through interpreting items in our home. She provided extremely useful info on furniture location and staged our family room to demonstrate her suggestions. IT WAS A DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENT! She helped us think in a different way regarding flooring and window treatments in the room. Accessory suggestions for our foyer and her thoughts on television placement were excellent. We also received useful information on colors for our outside door and house trim. We are very pleased and will continue to use

A representative from
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
came to my house to discuss our upcoming master bathroom remodel. I was very explicit in our phone call prior to our appointment that this project wasn't something we were doing immediately, but probably in the next six months. I wondered if it was too soon for her to come, but she said it was not....More /> She looked at our bathroom, we discussed some possibilities and she took measurements. She said she would email me her design and a ballpark figure within a week.
I have not received her plan and have tried to contact her and her company via email twice. No response. I would understand if our project was too small for her company (roughly $17,000-$20,000), to take on, but she did not indicate that. I have no idea why she would waste her time, and mine, to come to my home to discuss this project, and take measurements, if she wasn't going to follow through. We're disappointed because the photos we saw of their work were very nice.
On to other vendors now!

I have been working with
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
for past 4 month. I have nothing but praises for her J She is helping me furnish an open floor plan Family-dining-sunroom-kitchen from scratch. She keeps in mind all the elements that play together. She keeps the clients likings in mind, while advising what works best for the space and décor style. She tends to the practical needs while helping to choose the right kind of furnishing. She brings in the mix of different texture, shapes etc. to add interest to the area. I really like her sense of organizing client portfolio and making sure every piece goes with the rest of the décor. I have gotten a lot of great advice from her as well that I apply to different sections of my house. She is great to work with. Decorating is her passion!

did a beautiful job in picking out the right colors and size of furniture and using the right accessories that gave pops of color. The overall effect really enhanced the look of the home and I sold my home very quickly. She did a very good job staging my home and later, came and picked everything up along with the rental company which came and picked up the furniture. The furniture movers also were very good about not causing any dings in any walls or doors when moving the furniture in and out. I think staging my home definitely helped with selling it so quickly.

worked hard to create a design and provide furnishings for the community spaces at one of our senior multi-family projects. The completed spaces turned out not only functional, but beautiful! She did a fantastic job and the residents just love their newly redone community area, kitchen, computer room/library and numerous sitting areas. We are working with
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
on another project now and plan on using her expertise in the future as well. Thank you,

I ordered draperies for our sliding door. It was supposed to be panels on a
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
rod with stationary side panels and the stationary panels were to be on an oil rubbed bronze decorative rod. The first installation attempt
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
the decorator had the wrong rod. It was a gold
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
and not oil rubbed bronze.
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
the installer installed the
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
rod and the draw panels. They left and we waited a couple of weeks for the oil rubbed bronze rod to be ordered. In the meantime we quickly realized that when the panels on the
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
rod were closed they looked ok but when opened they were terrible, they didn't hang nicely on the ends at all. Two weeks later they came back with the correct rod and we pointed out to them how awful the panels looked when opened. They were taken down to be returned to the workroom to correct the situation but not in any hurry, it took 3 more weeks to accomplish this. Hard to believe it would take this long as they weren't remaking them just correcting the initial sloppy job. In the meantime because the blind we had on the door had been taken down we had to tack a sheet up every night for privacy. Finally
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
and
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
returned for the third time to finish the installation, not happy I guess that we didn't settle for the wrong rod and shoddy work on the panels as they were not friendly at all.
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
put the brackets up for the decorative rod and then I realized that the decorative rod would be a good 4" above the WHITE
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
rod so you would see BOTH rods, an oil rubbed bronze rod with a WHITE
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
rod about 4" below that. I was shocked that
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
, the DECORATOR, thought this was a good idea. It looked hideous. This is the first time I've used a decorative rod, I've always had a cornice or valence in the past so during the initial consult I questioned the use of a white
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
rod asking if it didn't come in a bronze color.
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
said no it didn't but it would be behind the bronze rod and you would only see it if you were sitting down and looking up not that it would be installed 4" below the bronze rod and stick out like a sore thumb, plus even if it had been a bronze color seeing both rods would be an eye sore and surely not what you would pay $2,600 for. At this point I said we needed to cancel the order. After talking to another decorator this week I found out that there is readily available a double rod in wood, both connected so one is traversing and the other is stationary but they're not separate rods. This decorator had a sample of the rod with her and it will be perfect.. There is a smaller diameter matching rod that will be traversing behind the larger diameter rod that will hold the stationary side panels. While I told
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
I wanted a metal rod since she is the decorator she should have advised me that there was a double rod available in wood and thet accomplishing what I had in mind would not work with a metal rod. To make matters worse this whole process took over three months and three installation attempts. Now I will order the same fabric from another decorator but in the meantime thanks to DD we will have to continue tacking up a sheet on our sliding door for the 6- 8 weeks it will take for a new order.

came in and did an assessment of our home. It is an elegant beautiful manor type home. We have lived here for 12 years.
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
went through our home and wrote us a comprehensive proposal of all the items and things we would need to do to prepare our house for sale after Labor Day. the list was comprehensive as we have a large home. Over the course of a week we abided by all of his suggestions and then
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
and his team got to work for two days in our home. they staged many areas with our own furniture and items and then brought in absolutely exquisite lamps, end tables, silk orchids, candle sticks, comforters and any other items meant to enhance and accentuate the architecture of our home.
The results were absolutely stunning and our home sold in 2 days. The pictures on MLS and the absolute artistic gift that
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
has is truly outstanding and unique. We have bookshelves on the upper level. We had them filled with pictures and knicknacks and souvenirs from our travels, and
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
rearranged every shelf with a theme from our travels and incorporated books from our library to state the theme: Disney, Alaska,
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
, Caymans, Hawaii, etc....just stunning.
We do plan on using
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
's services again as we embark upon completing our next home and designing our motif. I highly recommend
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
. He shared his gift with us.

Though I'm still in the middle of my design project (which is why there are zeroes in the cost section), I had to take a minute to recommend
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
.
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
is amazing! Not only does she have a fabulous eye for space and detail, and a terrific knack for finding just the right piece or design house, but she is wonderful to work with and a lot of fun to spend time with - which is really important when undertaking a sometimes-overwhelming process like, oh, redoing one's entire house. She's not at all pushy or demanding, and she works at MY pace which is, admittedly, on-and-off...but
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
is right there with me, whenever I'm ready. Seriously - if you can get her: GRAB HER! You won't be sorry!!!

It was the worst experience I have ever encountered.
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
(owner) never accompanied the installer during the installation of any of the shades, nor did she bother to come once the installation was complete. It was only when I returned to the house to see how awful things looked did
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
come out to see what the problem was. The first shade was installed in the wrong bedroom and I had to bring it to
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
's attention. Not a big deal, would be easily moved to the correct room when the other shades were to be installed. When that day came, the other shades were installed and none of the shades had been measured correctly resulting in 2-3" gaps on either side of the shade, allowing plenty of light to come in, not laying flush within the window, and defeating the entire purpose of the shades. In the dining room, the shades were actually a good 2" too short, again a mismeasurement on someone's part! It took several weeks before
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
could make it to my house to even address the situation. When she finally showed up she claimed that this is how these shades are and that nothing could be done, but she did offer to bring the manufacturer's rep out who "as a favor, agreed to refund my money on all the shades" except the ones in one bedroom saying that "gap" is within industry standard. Are you kidding me? I didn't care about any industry standard at that point, all I knew was that they looked awful and totally unacceptable in my mind. Over the last two months, I have had several other decorators out to my house since this entire fiasco began and each one of them has said those shades were made with material not intended to be used as a shade and these other decorators without a doubt would've refunded my money right there on the spot. Here it is two months later and I am still asking for my money back on those two
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
shades, valued at over $1,000. There is no quality control and no one checking anyone's work as far as the people
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
has working for her. If you like that kind of end result then you'll be perfectly satisfied with
Urbandale Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
. Otherwise, I think there are plenty of truly competent interior decorators in the area and you won't have to go through what I've just been through!
