Diane was responsive and available during our transition to a new home. Her work ethic is unmatched, and her innate drive is natural and fun to engage.

   First impressions are everything for a business trying to sell their services and it certainly hurt hers in the first few minutes. My husband answered the door and extended his hand to great her. The first thing she assumed upon seeing him that she ended up at the wrong house, and asked for me by name. My husband, retreating his unshaken hand, replied I was inside. If that wasn't strange enough...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Came to my home for a consultation on what services I was looking for. I was interested in: How I can turn my home from a cookie cutter house into a conversation piece.  How to change the layout of my living room to better utliaize the space. What I can do to upgrade the feel of my dining room room. (i.e. wall treatments, paints, window treatments, light fixtures, art) Get advice on crown molding, and what to do with the trim i dislike. Window treatments on the windows in living room. Storage ideas in the family living room. Basically, this was a start up consultation to see what her services had to offer. For $125 she would meet me in my home and get the feel for what my issue are and offer any insider help that I can do on my own. She made it clear that if I wanted an all inclusive job she would be available in a month or so but this was a good place to start. initial consult: $125 The budget should an idea be purpose for a future date: 20-25K.

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

When I read this review from [member name removed], I was surprised and very disappointed. Surprised, because I thought I had answered all of her questions, and disappointed because, apparently, I had not. I drafted and sent the following email to her soon after reading the review: "Hi, [member name removed] -- I just read your review of our meeting on Angie's List, and I feel horrible. I am so so...

I highly recommend Diane Foote Design Associates for the outstanding job she did in advising on the redo of my home interior to make it a "show place".  She recommended space layout for individual rooms as well as paint color, architectural details, window treatments, art placement, and furniture arrangement.   I saved a great deal of money by repurposing furniture and area rugs and reframing art....

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
This is the first time that I had an interior decorator to advise me and I was thrilled with the results. I had asked Diane to advise me on an interior re-do that would make my home a "show house".   The interior needed painting, ceiling plastering, wood floor refinishing, upstairs carpeting, new window treatments, new sitting room furniture, along with rearrangement and staging of the furniture and art that I already had. I was so impressed by Diane Foote's advice and recommendations and incredible attention to detail.  She pointed out things that I had never thought of before, like completing the wood molding on ceilings and refinishing the home's original brass hardware.  Diane was a joy to work with and I could rely on her completely throughout the project.   She solved all my issues of furniture arrangement and selection as well as  window treatments (Conrad Shades), creating something better than I could ever have imagined. Diane also recommended and supervised a plasterer and painters and other workers who were reasonably priced and who offered high quality service.  Everyone was dependable and worked so well together.  I felt that they all really wanted to please me and that they cared about the final look of my home.
