Your satisfaction is paramount.
"Danielle worked with me on a renovation and design project, including a full first floor renovation and design (including a kitchen), as well as a bathroom gut remodel. She is terrific – her photos and project descriptions will show you her flexibility in style and consistency in quality and execution. Here are a few things you can't tell from the pictures:
She has opinions, and will share them as much, or as little, as you'd like. If you want a firm hand and recommendations, you've got it. If you want to step to your own beat, she'll work with that and help make it all come together. And if you are attached to something, even though in your heart you know it's a little out there/tacky/dated/whatever, she will fit it right in, without batting an eyelash.
You will feel confident in how you're paying for her services and that you are aligned on achieving your goals within your budget. With transparent pricing, regular billing and a straightforward approach to fees for services, you know what you're getting, and that Danielle is not benefiting from finding things that exceed your comfort level on price. Indeed, she loves a good bargain, and will be as happy as you are if the perfect piece costs $100 rather than $1000.
She speaks fluent Builder. Also Contractor, Painter, etc. She will get along well with everyone on your project, and respect what each person brings to the table. Everyone involved will recognize immediately that she knows her stuff and is delightful to deal with, and her training as an architect gives her extra credibility. This creates a terrific environment for getting things done well, on time and with less stress."
"She's wonderful! We worked with Danielle to renovate our entryway and living room. The project included refinishing floors, extensive woodwork and trim, painting and decorating. Danielle was a true professional throughout the whole process. With her background in architecture, she was quick to bring up logistical or code issues during our initial planning. She interfaced proactively and well with the contractor, flooring folks, and other subcontractors essential to the project. This alleviated worry and time on our part. She was sensitive to our budget and helped us to make wise choices on where to invest more and where we could be more thrifty. Most importantly, Danielle has an incredible aesthetic. She helped us to create beautiful spaces with fabrics, furniture and materials that we would never arrived at without her. We were thrilled with our choice to work with her and look forward to more projects with her in the near future!"
"Danielle did a fantastic job designing the great room and the dining area in my house. The casual chic style with functional layouts and elegant furniture pieces with vibrant accents make the open concept area flow beautifully together. The space is ideal for the comfortable family lounging or entertaining guests. Danielle is exceptionally talented, very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend her."
"Danielle is creative, attentive and was a pleasure to have on our project. She listened to how we intended to use our space and created a plan that was spot on. We are absolutely thrilled with our space - clean lines, open concept, inviting and beautiful."
"Danielle assisted me with selecting materials and design of powder room. She has an exceptional eye and attention to detail."
