We purchased an 1800’s Colonial style house which we planned to refresh and re-launch as a bed and breakfast in Herkimer, New York.  Living out of state, I knew this would be no easy task for me to accomplish.  It would take a talented and patient person to coordinate and manage the design process in my absence, especially having never met me.  

I accompanied Tina on her initial walk through of the house via video conference.  It was a relief to know she shared my enthusiasm for the project and had the vision to implement my long wishlist of design changes.  My primary objective was to undo the previous owner’s Victorian touches and return the interior to a classic Colonial style.  

Tina delivered on every front.  While her design work speaks for itself, she also handled purchasing and receiving, and managed the financial aspect of the purchases she made.  She was mindful of spending and sought ways to reduce costs. She was always available via phone and e-mail, and did a great job keeping me updated on her progress.  Not only did she complete the redesign on time, but even after completion, she contributed many hours of her personal time to ensure our interior photography was a success.

When I was finally able to meet Tina in person, I joked about how it felt like I had known her my whole life.  That’s a true testament to her personality.  

Our family and friends who walked through the house before and after Tina’s work all expressed the same awe at the spectacular job she did.  As we prepare to open our doors for business, we know Tina’s designs will positively impact all our guests- from a restful night’s sleep on thoughtfully chosen bed linens to memorable wedding photos taken against the back drop of our grand interior.

Tina has added so much value to our home and business, and we highly recommend her to anyone in need of interior design services.   We also welcome anyone who wishes to experience Tina’s work to visit us at Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast, 112 West German Street, Herkimer, NY.

Tina is truly amazing. I hired her to redecorate my living room, which was originally Victorian style. I wanted to keep my Victorian furniture and was hoping she could change the style of the room to a shabby chic farmhouse look. I had a budget of $1000, and have to admit that I was a bit concerned that she'd be able to pull it off, but she FAR exceeded my expectations! With all that she did to the room, she even made the furniture seem new! I am blown away by her natural talent and creative eye, and I'm absolutely in LOVE with my new living room! She even kept everything under budget! I couldn't be happier and I can't recommend her enough! Thank you so much, Tina!"

I had a general idea of what I wanted, but when it came time to purchase things and pull my ideas together I was hitting a wall.  I reached out to Tina and she guided me through the entire process!  Together we picked out everything I needed.  Though I hired her for an e-design package, because of our close proximity she was more than happy to go shopping with me, meeting me at several of our local stores. She went above and beyond checking in periodically to see how I was doing and always made time to talk if I needed some direction. I am  beyond happy with my house and can't wait to have people over.

Tina is so easy to work with.  I was building a new house and I really needed some help with the kitchen design and layout.  I asked her to do a rendering of the kitchen and she came up with the perfect design solution.  She left nothing out! She picked out everything from the floor coverings, lighting fixtures and the appliances too. Thank you Tina! I love my kitchen!

We had a room above our garage that we were thinking about turning into a studio apartment, but we weren't sure where to start. We met with two other designers, then we called Tina and scheduled an appointment for her to come and take a look at it. After a few minutes upstairs, she started making suggestions and it wasn't long after we knew she was the designer we were going to hire.  The apartment turned out gorgeous and we've turned it into an air bnb.  In a nut shell, her ideas were very unique and her demeanor was a pleasure to work with.

I had an unfinished area in my basement that I'd been wanting to do something with for years.  I finally decided to enlist the help of someone else because I wasn't getting it done on my own.  I e-mailed Tina and she responded right away.  She came up two days later.  Not only did she give me a place to entertain, but also added value to my house.  She really does amazing work and she's very pleasant  to deal with. Her pricing was extremely reasonable and she went out of her way to find everything she needed at very low cost.  I'm beyond pleased with the entire experience.
