Everything went extremely well. Roberta is a wonderful professional. She captured our vision for the project, helped us refine it and then brought it to realization even better than we had imagined. She drew on an excellent network of skilled artisans and tradesmen that made the plan a reality. She also has a gift for using the furniture that we have so that we did not need to buy everything new. ...

I appreciate the review with all the kind words. It was an extensive project and even with you living there throughout all the construction. It was a little tense at that period of time but it went real well. When the painting started it changed the whole place and then as cabinets and countertops were added the place started to take shape. I am so happy you are so pleased and we will continue to ...

Roberta helped update then stage our former home which helped immensely with it selling quickly at a good price. This included flooring, paint colors, decluttering, & arrangement of furniture and pictures. It looked almost like a new home with the updates and staging. At our new home, she helped design the arrangements of furniture and pictures along with paint colors and choosing all new applianc...

VERY, VERY WELL - Her work deserves an A+. Roberta spent enough time with us to understand our preferences, existing furniture and vision for an up-to-date condominium. In a week she drafted a plan that met our needs and our budget. She sought our input with each decision. Her flexibility along with her artistic vision transformed our condo from blah to beautiful. Roberta has an astounding sense o...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
CONDOMINIUM UPDATING Last year when we downsized from a 3,000 square foot home to a 1,800 square foot condominium, we knew that condo needed considerable updating. Roberta was able to look at our existing furniture and accessories and choose updated wall colors, window treatments, flooring and furniture placement. The work included the main floor of the condominium plus the stair well leading to the lower level.

Roberta has the ability to step in and offer whatever design assistance you need.  Whether it is redecorating floor to ceiling or help with specific areas.  She listened to me and understood exactly what I was trying to accomplish.   She worked with me until I found exactly what I was looking for.  Her measurements and calculations were exact when it came to redoing the center island.  Her suggest...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I worked with Roberta during my kitchen update.   With her help I was able to find exactly what I was looking for insofar as colors, upholstery and counter top material choices.   She has the resources that are not available to the average consumer.   I also consulted with Roberta for color choices on a wall that I am changing out.  She brought samples that I have not seen in the paint stores.  She knew I had been thinking of adding an area rug so she brought samples to tantalize me.  Again, her rug samples are not something you can find in the carpet or home furnishing stores.

I have had the pleasure of working with Roberta Lathrop at Designs By Roberta a couple times now and will rely on her for future design needs. I first contacted her to purchase blinds. When I realized she brought more than the product with her: design ideas; product consultation/education; and color expertise, I was quick to hire her again for her $99 special for 99 minutes. I used this offer to h...

I was pleased by the choices that Roberta gave me. She was very knowledgeable about different brands and pricing and knew the answers to all of my questions. Everything she promised was delivered on time and she followed up with the installers to make sure the blinds were hung correctly and the flooring was laid down the right way.  I give Designs by Roberta 2 thumbs up for great service and hones...
