I signed my contract with
at the end of February after finding her on Angie's List. She had a special for three hours of design services. When I contacted her to see if she did design services as well as home staging she asked that I not go through Angie's List for the deal and do it directly through her so that she would receive all of the money.
's design philosophy is to start at the walls and work her way in. So she first asked that I pick a wall color and then she would design around that. She came up with some very interesting ideas about furniture placement, beams in the ceiling, etc. that I liked a lot. I do think she has a very good design sense.
The issue with
and why I cannot recommend her is her responsiveness, customer service and inability to manage the myriad of details that come with a project. She frequently cancelled appointments at the last minute, was late to several more and did not come prepared for others. She would often forget about what we had talked about in prior meetings and I needed to constantly remind her of the style I wanted, the items that were still open, and what else she needed to do. There was a stretch of time in March and April where she went radio silent and I was only able to get in touch with her after calling the contractor that she deals with.
The contract I signed with
asked for half of her fee up front and half at the midpoint of the project. I paid promptly but shortly after I paid her the second half of the fee she basically abandoned the project. I could not get in touch with her. She had told me that the contractor would start at my house on 7/7 but when I contacted the contractor he told me that he had told
several weeks previously that he was going to be held up because of another project. Finally towards the end of
after repeated attempts to contact
I formally terminated her services because of her abandonment of the job. I am currently pursuing a complaint against her with the Better Business Bureau.

is wonderful! She really worked with us to know our style and the look we wanted. She has a number of vendors she works with and got us great discounts. We have a number of fabulous pieces in various rooms that I never would have found on my own. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking to update their home.

It was a nightmare.

never managed to create a design that we loved. She seemed to focused on only using specific vendors & wanted us to compromise. Many mistakes were made (sinks did not fit in the vanities, not enough carpet was ordered to make a stair runner, the furniture did not fit in our guest

never took responsibility for any of her mistakes! Not only is there no accountability, you will be grossly over charged!!

Not well. I had a couple of months on a new unit to paint, refinish the floors, and install window shades prior to moving in and had problems closing on colors and getting the work done before moving in. Komel was not good with colors and her assistant not knowledgeable with the window shade colors and options. The project was late and very stressful and crunched into a high intensity week of "fun"....

I hired KJ construction to remodel my kitchen. After our initial visit

come and help. She brought pictures of her work and kitchens that she had helped in remodeling. She was comfortable to talk with and most important she got a feel for my design "style". She came up with a couple of visual computerized sketches and we tweaked the design. She also brought samples and pictures of the various elements she suggested I use (stone and glass tile which was beautiful, as well as a deep stainless sink, bake ware racks and dead corner pull outs). I was able to reach her by e-mail/phone and talk through choices and she offered good advice. I didn't have to "hunt" down items, she was able to narrow the field of choice for me so I could enjoy the process. She worked within my budget and I really couldn't have done this without her assistance.

Working with
Manitou Beach Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
's team was easy. This was a small part of the total remodeling work for the house to make it our new home. However, it was clearly the most positive experience of any. When my wife and I walked into the house at the end of the day,

's crew had transformed every room into a beautiful space. All the artwork was hung; rugs and furniture positioned. There was no mess or touchup required. They had anticipated our (well really my wife's) interests and style very well. They were operating under the constraint that we did not want to purchase any new items beyond the preliminary sofa purchases. With creativity and elegance they met that requirement. Overall, this is probably the best money we spent in a 6 month long remodeling project.

, which should be In about a week after initial contact, we were able to meet: oured our home, and discussed our preferences and what we wanted to accomplish. We are looking to install new carpeting in our living and dining room, and paint those rooms as well. We wanted to discuss color options and types of carpeting.

was very easy to work with, has a lot of experience and is quite knowledgeable. She really listens to what your needs and priorities are, and then strives to give you options that both match your stated desires and expand just a little beyond them. I found her advise both thoughtful, well considered and very helpful. She will be providing us with large page-sized examples of the colors we are considering

I had never used a designer before and initially hesitated in contacting one because I wasn’t sure I could afford it. However, I can now say it was money very well spent; I honestly would have been lost without her. Taking into account my personal taste, she helped me pick paint colors, tile, cabinets, hardware (pulls) and countertops with amazing results. She is both professional and thoughtful and has a great eye for color and design. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a talented interior designer at an affordable price. In fact I look forward to working with her again. She is wonderful!

Truly experts! The technician,
Manitou Beach Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
, is f.a.s.t. The caliber of work is top notch and the tech's disposition is enjoyable. This is a notable cost savings in comparison to IKEA's contractor. My advice would be to have a few items on hand to assemble at one time in order to get the best value. If I had an expert like this for every aspect of my life, it would be so easy! Made my day. Thank you gents =)

This service was exactly what I was looking for. I wasn't confident about choosing the new look for my living room. I wasn't sure what my "style" was, and what would look good together. I needed a consultant to let me know if the items I was considering would look good together.
Manitou Beach Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
called me and we talked about what I liked/didnt like. She had me post pictures from Pinterest and Houzz of rooms I liked. From that she was able to tell me what my style was. She noticed things I never realized before. For example I apparently picked the exact style couch in every picture I posted. As I found furniture I liked I would send her photos and she would let me know if she thought they would go good together. For example she recomended a different coffee table - i needed one that was more substantial to balance the size of the sofa. She also helped me fine-tune the paint colors for my walls - I thought this was the hardest part of designing the room, but I love the results.
I was basically looking for someone to guide my choices, but they will also modify their level of service depending on what you need (cost varies depending on service needed).
I would positively use them again!!
