When my husband and I were looking to replace the kitchen floor in our 1,800 square foot ranch, we set up an appointment for Michele and her team to visit our home.
For someone who doesn’t possess the design gene, I’ve learned the hard way that replacing a single thing can disrupt all the other design elements in a space – especially with our open concept floor plan (our great room includes a dining, living, and family room). We wanted to make sure all our decorating choices made sense – down to the finishing touches. It had to flow together.
When we saw our home through Casabella’s professional lens, the project expanded beyond the floors. We hired them to redo the entire great room – which later spilled over into the guest suite.
For design inspiration, we simply said we wanted the space to feel calm. They took that concept and ran with it. We were impressed by all the design choices we had access to; and when they presented their plan for the furniture, rugs, light fixtures, flooring, wall treatments, and color palette, it was clear they understood our vision. I love mingling with guests in the kitchen, so we replaced the countertops to give us extra seating. They also recommended painting the dark trim white throughout- which looks lovely and fresh with the new gray walls.
When it comes to working with a designer, my husband Henry and I are novices – we didn’t know what to expect. It was a relief to discover that when Casabella said something, they meant it. They also listened to everything we had to say, so it felt like a true collaboration. Whether it was a contractor scheduled to show up at 10:00 on Tuesday, or a meeting with Beth and Rachel, they couldn’t have been more reliable or wonderful to work with.
Because they knew what they were doing, it was a relaxing, enjoyable experience for us. And our house looks fantastic! Everything works together now – including the accessories they layered in at the end. Any team that can transform a home with a single word earns our respect. Since day one, we’ve had nothing but glowing things to say about Casabella.”
