Joy. Calm. Warmth. Love. Those are just a few of the words that describe how I feel when I look around at the space that Up by Design created for our family.

We found Lynn through a recommendation on a Facebook mom’s group. I liked what I saw on her website – not all were necessarily my style but I liked that it showed her diversity. She came over and did a complete walk-through of our home as we talked about what my husband and I liked and didn’t like. After our first meeting, she shared with me a Pinterest board of ideas for several of our rooms. Although I was anxious to have her design every room in our new house, we decided together based on budget and timing to start with three rooms – two family/living rooms and our dining room.

Once we agreed on the final budget, it took about a month for the design proposal. She presented two proposals and only made minor revisions to the one we chose. She gave us 3D rendering, photos, some samples and even had virtual reality glasses for us to be able to look around our space with the design!

As part of the design we chose, we decided to paint our kitchen/dining/living room cabinets/walls and replace our backsplash in the kitchen/dining room – it was a big project. Lynn doesn’t recommend or work with preferred contractors so although she made the recommendations for color and tile, we were on own for finding and hiring the people to do the work. For us, this was a positive aspect of working with Lynn. Although it was a bit of a pain and took longer than expected for us to get the ball rolling, I think we saved money in the end and learned quite a bit during the process. The cabinet colors and tiles that Lynn picked out looked amazing when the work was complete. Now on to the finish!

We went away for a long weekend while Lynn and her husband implemented the final design. They unpacked all the boxes of deliveries that had been stored in our garage and brought over all the beautiful and fun things Lynn had been buying for us while our cabinets and backsplash were being done. When we saw the transformation, it was amazing and exciting. Even our two young kids were super impressed! I loved hearing all of Lynn and Matt’s stories about certain pieces they picked out and what they liked most. There were so many things that blew us away and it was so clear that Lynn had put her heart and soul into our home. For this, we will always be grateful.

It’s been just about a month since Lynn and Matt were here and we continue to love being home. One unexpected bonus that came out the project is that the kids are neater. They love the space so much that they don’t want to “mess it up” with their clutter!

We highly recommend Up by Design!
