Interior Redesign

"I appreciate what you have done more than you can ever
 Even my 7 year old wants to be in that room now!!"

--Dianna T.

I just LOVE my room and I am amazed at how good
it looks.
 I can not wait for you to do my kitchen!  I really
appreciate you e-mailing all the tips to me so I will not forget
any of them.  Look forward to our next venture."

--Cathy M. in Raleigh, NC

"I love my 'new' living room!  
Your ideas were so creative.  I never would have come up with them on my
own.  I just sent digital pics out to my family.  The compliments are rolling in!"

--T.K. in Cary, NC

"Hi Amy -

I really enjoyed working with you today.  I really love the result and so does my husband.  He hasn't said
anything negative about it at all, which is a rave review for him!  I'm sitting on the couch right now with my dog.  
The more I sit in here, the better it feels.  I do like it so much more now.   

I've attached some pictures that I took after you left. I really would appreciate it if you would send your pics to
me, especially the before one :-).  It's such a contrast.

Thanks again.  It was truly a pleasure working with you today."


"I love how our rooms turned out, and you were a joy to work with.  You were so patient and open to working
with our ideas and you really know your work.
We love coming home now.  Thanks, Amy."

--Kati H. in Morrisville, NC

"Just wanted to say thank you again for all your hard work and great ideas.  I also wanted to let you know that
my husband loved [the room], thought it was great.  
His favorite part is the fact that you used what we
 I just can't stop looking at it and can't wait to shop for the finishing touches.  I'm looking forward to having
you out again soon.  Thank you again so very much."

--L.K. in Apex, NC

"Thank you so much for your ideas.  You got me thinking about rearranging other rooms as well (i.e. my
bedrooms).  I have already rearranged the girls’ rooms & it's been great.  
The traffic flow is so much nicer
& doesn't feel as crowded.  Thanks for everything,"

--Betty S. in Cary, NC

"Amy, it was a pleasure to work with you on Saturday.   
I like your style of working with what I already
and I appreciate your personal taste in decorating."  

--Ted D. in Raleigh, NC

General Decorating

"Thanks so much Amy! You are making a very big difference in our life.  It is such a relief to see the house
coming together.  I am so happy with the living room result, and Bailey LOVES her room. She smiled from ear
to ear and spent much of the weekend up there. We are both very, very happy.  Thank you! It is such an
emotional relief to make headway.... one room at a time!  
Hiring you to help me is the smartest thing I've
done in a long while.


"Soo good to work with you.
You are the voice of sanity in a whirlwind of decorating madness for me!"


"Dear Amy,   Thank you so much for your help, input, and advice. It amazes me how you were able to
understand my needs and advise me on where to begin and focus my attention.
You really understood my
feelings and what I need to do
- more than I understand my needs. Now I can 'see' the bedroom and office in
my minds eye. For storage, function and aesthetics, now I can run with that. Having just moved in and not
knowing where to begin had me paralyzed. Now with a jumping off point I feel less stressed and can 'see' how
nice those rooms will look.

You are the decorator everyone who lives an everyday life with a limited budget is looking for. I would urge
anyone who has ever felt intimidated by the word 'decorator' to seek you out and work with you. You are the

P.S. You'd make a very good shrink, too."

--Rosemary A. in Apex, NC

Our meeting on Thursday was great & really got me clearer about things. I imagine one thing that
people like about working with you (well, I like it) is that it confirms/suggests for the first time that they DO have
a style/styles; it's just not expressed strongly yet, but it can be.  Thank you."

--S.L. in Cary, NC

"Thank you for coming out to the really inspired us.  All your pointers are really helping us out.  
The best part is that my husband is so excited and totally into it.  It's really funny.  Thank you, thank you,
thank you!"


"Thanks so much.  
Having you in was just what I needed.  I’m excited to see the finished product.  Thanks

--Debbe B. in Cary, NC

"You've made my life easier through your efforts to help me organize, prioritize, and handle all of the decorating
details.  You have helped me implement my ideas in a much faster time-frame than I would have done on my
own.  With your support and creativity,
I have a refreshed home that I love!  Thank you!"

--Molly M. in Cary, NC

"Hi Amy, Thanks so much for your expertise and ideas on Wednesday. You gave me so many good, useful
ideas that I can start on now!  I'm also amazed at your visual memory. When I read your follow up e-mail, I was
quite impressed with what you remembered about my house, what we discussed, and what you retained about
the many ideas we threw around.
You really listened--thank you! Your e-mail was helpful as far as
reminding me what we talked about and the resources you gave are invaluable. I tried to take notes, but didn't
do such a great job, so your follow-up e-mail will become a staple in my purse as well as something tangible to
let my husband read.  Thanks again for your great ideas. I'll be in touch when I accomplish the tasks we talked


"Thanks again for all of your help!  
Our house is really beginning to look like a home now, thanks to you."

--Jennifer Z. in Holly Springs, NC

"Hey Amy,  I really enjoyed shopping with you.
Thanks to you I am very, very excited about decorating
my house!

--Olga N. in Cary, NC

You made my day!  And my husband’s too.  He was so pleased with your recommendations for the
living room.  Thank you."

--Mindy S.

I’m giddy with excitement and I want to get started on everything we discussed.  You are
simply delightful and I’m going to tell everyone I know about you :)"

--Monty C. in Apex, NC


"Organizing our life is going to reduce so much of the stress of keeping up with everything on a daily basis.  I'm
so glad
you've been able to help us change our bad habits into functional systems and storage.  

--Kristen B.

"Thanks again for all your help [with the craft room]--I'm even able to keep up with it!
It's really made a huge
difference for me and my motivation and efficiency.
 We will probably be in touch with you in a few
months to help us with the garage."


"I just wanted to thank you for your help organizing the kitchen and living room.
I really felt like crying to see
my place like a home!
My 4-year-old was excited to see his painting on the wall. I can't wait to see what we
can do to the rest of the apartment!"

--Eiko K. in Raleigh, NC

Home Staging

"I wanted to call and let you know what you did for us.  We put a sign out on Monday after we did most of what
you suggested.  We got a phone call that day, and then they wanted to come look at  it again on Tuesday.  
They put an offer in and we got what we were asking for on Tuesday.  
 They looked at a lot of houses--I
think 60 to 90 homes?-- and they picked ours
, and I really, truly know it's what you did for us.  We will give
you the best reference you could ever ask for.  We just think the world of you.  We were just so pleased with
everything you suggested, and I know that's what sold our house.  So I just wanted to say thank you so much!"

--S.S. in Holly Springs
