..."Overall a delight with which to work"
Kathleen and Ellen from Sensational Surroundings were so helpful throughout all of the phases of our recent kitchen remodel project. They took my general ideas and turned them into a concrete design that I love! They did so much of the legwork from setting up contractor meetings, bringing in samples of cabinets, flooring, and window treatments, and making certain that all phases of installation flowed smoothly. Kathleen and Ellen were always easy to contact with any questions or concerns, and were overall a delight with which to work! I would recommend them wholeheartedly for any design project large or small.

..."Very well organized"
Kathleen helped me pick paint colors for my townhouse. She did a very thorough job selecting the colors, ordering the samples, and e-mailed me the selection of colors for each room. Very well organized.

…”The advice on colors and decorating ideas were wonderful … I now love those spaces”
I have known both Kathleen and Ellen for many years through our involvement in the WBN. I have always found them both to be very professional, creative and organized. They recently helped me with three spaces in my home: kitchen, family room and deck. The advice on colors and decorating ideas were wonderful… I now love those spaces and comfortably welcome guests into my home because of their knowledge and help. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to rejuvenate a space, or looking to stage a space for selling.

“Kathy and Ellen listen to your ideas and work with your taste.”
We have worked with several decorators over the past 20 yrs. We find Kathy and Ellen very easy to work with. They listen to your ideas and work with your taste. They guide you instead of doing what they want to do. They have great knowledge of design and an extensive list of vendors and suppliers. They are always thinking about their customers and coming up with suggestions. We are well pleased with their service.

“… great to work with … very attentive… ensure that the end result is absolutely perfect.”
Kathy and Ellen are great to work with. They are very attentive, spending as little or as much time with the client to ensure that the end result is absolutely perfect. They spend the time upfront to understand your goals, wants and needs. They want to learn your style and recommend accordingly. Neither Kathy nor Ellen push product yet look to utilize your current style as well as furniture, lighting, etc. to make your spend wisely and your home beautiful.

….”able to tune into what I wanted”
The designers at Sensational Surroundings were able to tune into what I wanted – paint, fabric, furniture and ideas for furniture and accessory placement. Vendors are excellent – fine workmanship. Also worked within my budget without sacrificing quality. Great with color and design.

…”extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all of their suggestions”
The staff at Sensational Surroundings was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all of their suggestions. They made sure to find out what my style genre is and adapted their work accordingly. I could not be happier that I decided to use Sensational Surroundings for my condominium overhaul.

… "worked efficiently and professionally ....."
I have worked with Kathleen and Ellen on several projects. Recently, Sensational Surroundings managed the color scheme for a whole house repaint. They worked efficiently and professionally with my client to completely refresh and streamline to a modern look. They incorporated existing elements and made suggestions for updates. The house looks brand new now, and my clients were extremely happy wth the new color scheme.

....."a wonderful job decorating my home for Christmas"
Ellen and Kathleen did a wonderful job decorating my home for Christmas. They trimmed two trees for me and custom designed garland for my banisters and loft area. Very beautiful and done very quickly.
