"Working with Dawn was a complete pleasure. We required both a bathroom remodel and finishing touches to each of our rooms in our new home. Dawn has an incredible ability to balance the practical with the aesthetic in a variety of styles and approaches, all within our fixed budget. Thank you Dawn for truly making our home special!"
"My husband and I had been struggling for 3 years with how to arrange and decorate our great room. We have two dogs and a small child, so we wanted the room to look good, but we needed it to be practical. Dawn came in, asked terrific questions about how we use the room, evaluated the style of the rest of our house, and offered amazing guidance so that the room is now beautiful and functional. Dawn was very flexible when it came to our ideas and budget. She was always prompt for meetings and highly responsive to email and voicemail. She will be my go-to design resource for all of my future projects."
"My husband and I bought a house that needed a completely new kitchen. We had some ideas, but didn't know how to translate those ideas into a design plan. We called Dawn and she took care of everything for us--she listened to what we wanted and came up with several different design options. She worked quickly and professionally and we will definitely be hiring her again for other projects!"
"From artfully arranging my books and "objets" on my bookshelves to honchoing a full rip-out and remodel job on my 3rd floor bath, Dawn brings her great eye for design and a work ethic that won't quit to every job she takes on. "
"I have been in real estate for over 30 years, and I have never seen such spectacular staging of a home. The house needed a great deal of work before it could go to market. Dawn and her team came in and tackled the project quickly and on time. Their work resulted in a full price cash offer in less than 3 days. I would highly recommend Dawn!"
"I loved Dawn's endless supply of fresh ideas. In addition to a great sense of color and style she's incredibly innovative. She literally came up with dozens of great choices that all expressed my idea of what a beach house should be. Very open. Relaxed and beautiful, but still a place you can feel comfortable putting your feet up—even if they have sand on them. Best of all the project was completely turnkey, she handled everything from finding the contractor and supervising the construction to putting the last little accessory in place. Beyond making the intitial decisions, I didn't have to do a thing—and the results were outstanding."
"In addition to being very creative, having terrific taste, and being extremely organized, the great thing about Dawn is that she really pays close attention to how you want to live in your space. Her ideas grow out of your ideas. One of the things I like to do is settle in with a good book and relax with a good cigar from time to time. So although our plan for the condo was very open and airy, she surprised me by creating an intimate sitting area complete with comfy leather chairs and ottoman where I could unwind at the end of a hard day. I didn't come out and ask for an an area like that. But she listened and realized it was something I'd really appreciate. And I do. It's one of my favorites parts of my home. That kind of focus on personal attention is one of the things that makes Dawn so special."
"Dawn came to us by way of referral just as we were breaking ground on our new home in Prime Hook Beach, DE. Neither of us had ever built a house before and were a little intimidated by the process. Dawn’s guidance was invaluable. She was patient and practiced at guiding us through a maze of decisions. I was having a hard time finding just the right furniture for our living room. She found it at this great furniture store nearby where we ended up totally outfitting our living room plus finished off the dining room as well. It was the perfect look that both Joe and I loved. The more time I spend with Dawn the more I’ve come to appreciate her impeccable taste, eye for color and her talent for injecting the unexpected into her designs. She was a delight to work with."

"After 3 weeks of working with Dawn, I listed the home for more than what the owners and I had previously discussed (because we felt it looked so nice). End result was 15 showings in the first 48 hours, 4 offers, and the sellers accepted a contract for more than the list price. I would certainly recommend her again!"
