"Carla designed our basement project and we couldn’t be happier with the results. She listened to all of our wants and incorporated some great ideas and design elements of her own that took the project to a whole new level. We have received so many compliments on our new space and much of the credit goes to Carla. She made the process easy and enjoyable. Narrowed down selections to our specific taste and made the entire space cohesive. We would absolutely work with Carla again!"

~ Aira Gunderson

"Five out of five stars might not be enough. From the very first meeting to the final walk through, I felt like I was her most important client. We completed a 7 month remodel and I was very nervous about all the selections and choices that would need to be made as someone who doesn’t have an eye for design. Carla streamlined all the selection meetings and empowered me to make the best decisions. "

~ Katy Starfield

"Carla was able to see beyond what was there and helped us to see what our space could be. Being able to see the plans in 3-D made a big difference – it’s hard for me to visualize a plan just by looking at a bunch of lines drawn on a piece of paper. She was mindful of our budget and steered us toward choices that would blend the old and the new. She was responsive and a pleasure to work with. We are really happy with our results!"
