Good Words

Kind Words From Our Clients

“Many thanks for your invaluable help with our 2nd story porch project.  Your architectural expertise and insight were greatly appreciated and resulted in a superb addition to our house.  It was such a pleasure to have worked with you!

– Jacob and Rosa Dijkstra, Private Clients


“I worked very closely with Judith, building my dream house. It was an intricately designed and planned home and one that we wanted to look, although it was brand new, as if it had been on its site for 100 years. The entire community’s reaction, once we were done, was that we had “hit the ball out of the park.

“Judith is immensely talented and works tirelessly. She is a slave to the details, which can often make or break a project. She has superb taste, is technically strong, and is also a delightful person and a pleasure to know. I would hire her again in an instant.”

– Tom F., Private Client


“I recommended Judith to a client who lived in Cleveland Heights and was relocating to New Jersey. They wanted help in choosing colors and decorating their new home. Judith provided help with designing, decorating, and use of colors for this couple; reflecting the style, mood, and feel of their current home. They were very pleased with her help, her attitude, and the terrific results of her good counsel.”

– Lee-Ann Spacek, North Coast Residential Relocation, LLC

“Aside from your professional and enjoyable qualities, I enjoyed the hand-outs you provided. They are helpful for both modest and major projects for the home. I have experimented in spaces around my home, and your input always produces a pleasing presentation! And thank you for pointing out new sources for decorating finds.”

– Mary Cirillo, “Interior Decorating Made Easy” Class Student

“The way you decorated my bathroom is so beautiful, I’m so appreciative. It was such a nice surprise to come home and see what you did. I want you to do the rest of my house now. Thank you so much!”

– Jacquie C., Private Client
