Portsmouth Interior Designers from people just like you.

was fantastic!!! She was very professional through out the 10 months of building and
our new home. She prepared" a budget at the beginning of the process and kept us up to date on our budget through out the 10 month process. She was always very punctual for all of our meetings. She would also assist us if there were any issues with our builder. Her design and
knowledge was the best.
has a great personality to go along with her professionalism.
charged for her services on an hourly basis and she earned every dollar of it. Our total budget included her services and the purchase of all the furniture, window treatments, light fixtures and other interior design items.
helped us stick to our budget. We would highly recommend

-Russell D.

"She found the contractor for me and worked with me tirelessly to get the right materials. I used the combination of honeyonics marble and granite. The combination" of the colors and paint and fixtures really brought it together. The paint job is amazing. She identified the colors for the granite and the paint very well. I am well pleased with the end result and plan to use her in the future.

I know you said you didn't want a realtor but I do know someone who is good.  Her name is Pam Hunt and she is with William E. Wood.


Otherwise I would check out interior designers.  They could make suggestions and outline some finer details that could help you stage your home.

In the meantime start packing away those personal momentos and pictures.  Clear and clean the walls.  Go with a neutral paint color throughout the house.  Oyster by Behr is a classic.  Start getting rid of clutter.  If you haven't worn it in 3 years or used it in 5....pitch it.  Depending on how long you have lived in your home the accumulation of "things" could be tremendous. Donate your unwanted and unused to a thrift store.  It is tax deductible. Get appliances off the counters in the kitchen.  Buyers want to imagine "their" things sitting there.  Get rid of heavy drapes and go with  sheers consistent throughout the house.  Make rooms look larger by chucking some furniture.  Sell it or put it in storage until you have moved.  How is the floor?   Carpet removed may reveal beautiful hardwoods that are in high demand right now.  Pets?  Get someone to come give you the "sniff" test.  We grow acustomed to the smell of our house and might not recognize pet stinkies. Make everything shine by cleaning thoroughly, and let in the light.  Bright rooms are inviting.  Dark rooms are depressing. These things will give you a head start and clear your mind for some good ides.  Good luck with your interior designer.


I have lost count of how many kitchens I have remodeled and I prefer Brushed Stainless Steel sinks. Polished will show scratched more  and with the brushed finish if you wipe with the grain with a milld scrub pad and an old time product called Bar Keepers Friend the look good almost forever. If you have any concerns about scratches in the bottom you can use a grid when needed, most sink manufacturers make them for their sinks. You say you have stains in a solid surface siink and it is probably the older generation. The newer ones have a high stone content to the mix and are less prone to this but I still prefer stainless.

Interior Design reviews in Portsmouth


I have loved working with
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
! After 10 years in my home, it was time for a refresh. At out initial meeting,
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
spent time with me to understand my taste and budget. From there,she put together a plan for each room that included color schemes, as well as furniture and decorating ideas.
With the sketches and idea book
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
left behind, I was able to do a lot on my own. I also set up a couple of appointments for us to shop together.
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
was very helpful in picking out carpet, tile, etc. as I finished off my basement and helped in choosing some of the larger furniture items.
I couldn't be happier with the results as my house is updated and doesn't feel as disjointed. I still have a few rooms yet to complete, and will continue to consult with
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
as I pull it all together.
- Deena F.

Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
came in to consult with me on window treatments for the master bedroom, loft area and bathroom of my new condo. I had a strong idea of what I wanted and
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
was easily able to plug into my style and what would suit me. She has a number of great professionals that she works with and was able to get the exact treatments I wanted and have them installed to her (and my) exacting requirements. I am very happy with what I ended up with and with
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
's help and guidance throughout the whole process.
I would definitely recommend
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
's service to others and would use her again myself. In fact, she plans to get back to me for an upholstery project.
- Deborah S.

I WOULD NOT recommend
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
for any design/
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
/remodeling/etc. work. She bills herself as someone who has "morphed" into turn-key residential remodeling and commercial design. If you are looking for reputable and warrantied remodeling work, hire a licensed, experienced contractor. We had problems every step of the way with
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
and her "sub-contractors" after we purchased a 30 year old home that needed updating and remodeling....to the tune of over $25,000 by the time we were done with
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
. She was rarely present to oversee or "sign-off" on the work done in our home.....carpentry work, wood floor, electrical fixture and bathroom vent installation, tile backsplash installation and custom plantation shutters. Her carpenter built "custom" mirrors for our bathrooms on walls that were not level and added shelves and clothes rods and doors for the master closet. The mirrors had to be re-done 3 times, and we were left with huge mirrors that are now pulling away from the walls and coming apart at the seams and have a distorted reflection - much like a fun house. We were also left with holes in the wall where the mirrors were removed and reattached to the wall. We were told to have our painters (not hired by
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
- we wised up by that time) to repair the holes and to also fill in the cracks at the mirror corners (not mitered well!), even though the painter had nothing to do with those issues. We waited three weeks for a transition to be made from the new wood closet floor to the existing travertine in the master bath, and then
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
tried to pass off white, textured, raised tile as matching the travertine tile in our bathrooms - which was tan/brown and flat - completely different tile. Plus, using tile to do the transition would have necessitated tearing up existing tile (more money for
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
) when we specifically asked for a wood transition (no tile tear-up, less money for
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
). We won that battle but it took another week of staining and re-staining the transition to get it right. It was up to us to inspect work as it was completed, and when it wasn't done well,
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
always supported the sub contractors and made excuses for them rather than supporting her paying clients. She demanded pay for overseeing shutter installation that she was not present for and never called to check on. Her carpenter (
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
) refused to complete agreed upon work on our baseboards because he "simply wasn't willing to do it" per
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
. My understanding is that he wasn't pleased that we had issues with his shoddy work. We now have wood floor boards that have cracked, but
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
refuses to put me in contact with the floor guy (
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
Floors). I have tried to contact him myself but I'm sure he has been told by
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
not to return our calls. I have asked for the warranty information on the floors and other work that was done, but
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
will not supply that information to us. My perception is that
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
is upset or angry that we were not pleased with some of the work done and after a while we found other sub contractors to do some of the work - painting and windows, which she wasn't happy about since she wouldn't make money off them, I suppose. I believe that because we were unhappy clients,
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
refuses to communicate with us and supply us with warranty information. Basically, she does not stand by her work.
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
's bookkeeping and accounting skills were also called into question when she asked for a $2000 payment towards some of the work that I had already paid, two weeks prior. After my stating that the check had cleared the bank, she admitted that the check had been credited to another client. We also returned from vacation to find our air conditioner thermostat turned down to 60 degrees, the unit running continuously, but the house temp was nearly 90.
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
's floor installers had turned it down while they were working, left it turned down and the unit broke. Of course that was our fault, not sure why, but it was. My husband had tools taken from the house, our pool cleaning unit was clogged and subsequently broke from rag covered in tile grout that was tossed into our pool and the tile powder and left over grout was dumped inside our fence near the pool to "flow" into the
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
, rather than disposed of properly.
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
said this was standard procedure. Every "sub contractor"
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
had in our home left a huge mess when they were done - saw dust everywhere, masking tape residue all over the counter tops, grout on tiles...
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
said I might want to hire a professional cleaning service if I wanted the house clean after all work was done. This is a very long review, I could make it longer, there were so many issues, but I'll just say if you are looking for quality, reputable work and someone who stands by their work, do not use
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
or anyone associated with her.ca
- Patty B.

Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
Pat Speck provided inspiration as well as hard goods for our condo remodel. She guided me out of my dull comfort zone and turned my 1400 sq ft condo into a beautiful, updated home. She suggested flooring and advised where I could see it in application. She suggested updates that I never would have thought of and they turned out fantastic. She understood my vision and added professional decorating polish to it. She is always available to answer my questions and advise me even on the smallest matter. She obviously loves what she does and her enthusiasm is contagious.

Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
scheduled a Saturday appointment which was very convenient for us. She asked us ahead of time any brands of colors we are interested in and brought color samples of those brands and others.
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
gave us very good suggestions and ideas which helped us immensely. We went with her ideas and love the colors....More /> Will work with her again and recommend her any day.
- Amar K.

The evening could not have been better, thanks to
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
. They know their business and as hostess, the host and I, couldn't be more pleased with their efforts and results. Since my husband is a hunter and our home is filled with trophies, we often get asked to have events here at our home. With
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
to call on I know we will always be willing to hold these events. They were there long before the event and did not leave until the last of the food was put up, and the last dish washed and dried.

Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
did a fantastic job and was a pleasure to work with all over my home, I can’t wait to have her back to help with a future kitchen remodel.
- Kelly M.

Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
!! It started great because we liked everything she was doing, so we overlooked her tardiness, her sick husband, traffic. After 3 days and more pictures and stuff than we agreed to, we asked for the receipts. To our surprise, the costs grew from $3K to $9K. Here's how
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
will play you. They will start with the little stuffs and be very friendly. Then, they will ask you to pay them for the full amount of the project. Then, they will tell you that the credit card was either declined or did not go through. They will ask for a 2nd credit card and run that too. Again, shame on us for trusting these people. So you know, it can take 24-48 hours for your charges to post. DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE. 1) ASK FOR a Contract- they appear super nice, but as time goes by- someone will be sick, will need surgery, a loss of a baby, husband in bad accident, flu etc...... They will never call you back in a timely manner 2) do not pay till the job is complete 3) DO NOT PAY CASH!!! We got our credit card company involved. On 11/20/2014, we settled with
Portsmouth Interior Designers Provider Name Locked
. She was supposed to give us a $900 cash. Guess what?!?!?! she has had the flu, 2 surgeries, car troubles, etc... we are done with her and
