Working with Donna was fantastic. Her taste and ours were similar, which always helps, and almost everything she showed us or picked out for us to look at was a winner. She was able to offer valuable guidance on types of furniture and fabric and was tremendous help on furniture placement and overall color palette. Donna also turned us on to some furniture catalogs that we would have never seen otherwise, which we loved. She was also able to help us incorporate the things that we wanted for our room which were not necessarily part of her design plan. Overall she was helpful, professional, friendly, responsive, flexible and thoughtful with her design. We ended up with a room that is contemporary but classic and very comfortable and we love it. We would definitely hire her again.

Donna is professional but has a sense of humor. She's a great listener, but is honest enough to be blunt when she needs to be (for those times when something catches your eye and you need to be saved from yourself). Donna made suggestions which would not have occurred to me but which were spot on for the space/style. That is what you want in a designer.

I had the pleasure to work with Donna in decorating my family room. She provided a design of the furniture layout after which we chose the sofa, 3 side chairs, fabrics and accessories by visiting several design showrooms in Charlotte. Although the furniture took several weeks to arrive, it was well worth the wait. The furniture was perfect. Nothing had to be returned for correction. Donna also provided a contact for painting my open floor plan to complement the design. Again, a blessing in disguise. Donna was professional in every aspect of the process, i.e., detailed invoicing with all charges listed, updates on the progress on the furniture, delivery dates, and best of all, stayed within my budget.

I have worked with interior designers previously and this was absolutely by far my best experience. Donna really listened to what I wanted and is very flexible. She gave me several options to chose from in various price ranges which were exactly what I described. She is extremely knowledgeable and has fantastic relationships with vendors. In addition, she is very accessible, punctual and organized. Everything was delivered on time (or early) and at exactly the price quoted. She is fantastic at being available during the delivery process and laying out the room to make everything perfect. She has an incredible sense of style and a very keen eye to every detail. I give her my absolute highest recommendation- she's amazing! Donna was willing to assist at any level, and to work with items I already have (which I have not always found to be true of other decorators). I particularly appreciated her willingness to listen to my ideas. I'm purchasing an older home, and she was also able to give me guidance on several questions I had about upgrades. She is very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. I am really looking forward to working with her more once I've moved into my new home!

I came into this not even knowing what to do or where to start. And Donna somehow gave me everything I didn’t even know I wanted. Hiring her was a great decision - I now have a home I can truly be proud of

Donna is awesome. I had never worked with an interior designer and was a bit hesitant but she came highly recommended from a friend. I could not be more pleased that I took the leap. She has an amazing eye for color. She listened to my needs and laid out a number of options for me. I went with all of her recommendations because she nailed it. I plan to use her for my interior furniture choices and layout. I'm very much looking forward to it!

Donna was great to work with: I was apprehensive because I do not like a typical “decorator look” as I like a more modern, clean approach to decorating. Donna saw my house and made suggestions that I never would have considered and now we love our new rug, paint, etc!! I was so uncertain about paint color but her help turned out to be extremely valuable. The right paint made my house look unbelievable. I took her suggestions and her instincts were definitely right. It was nice to have someone to help and give advice without having to do an overhaul of my home. I didn’t want new decor- I just wanted to make what I had work and she made that happen. I will continue to call her as I need her and I have and will recommend her to others. She is very professional as well- she was always on time and very attentive.

She made the entire process just so enjoyable! What really sets her apart is her work ethic, the way she listens to what we wanted, staying as long as it took, and finding problems before we do. Everything was perfect with Donna,” One of the best parts about working with someone like Donna is how easy she is to work with, how quick she is to respond, how she’s always on time and went way above and beyond to make sure everything went according to plan.
