I bought my first home, and was overwhelmed and excited with the project of designing it to truly make it my own. As much as I wanted to take a hands-on approach, I knew I didn't have the time. From the stories I'd heard, I was concerned with what I would have to spend to hire a great designer. I was referred to Sophie by a great mutual friend who swore by her - she'd recently finished work on his new place.

We set an appointment, and she and her project manager spent 2 hours with me walking through my condo and taking measurements, and just trying to get to know me and my aesthetic. We set a budget, a timeline and prioritized what things we wanted to accomplish first. She followed-up in a couple days with a Dropbox folder filled with furniture, countertop samples, light fixtures and art. She provided 3-4 carefully selected options for every piece which was enough to provide variety but not overwhelming.

Aside from the furniture, she also is a color specialist and we focused on painting several rooms to complement the new furniture and art. My favorite shade is the minty grey green we painted the bedroom. It transformed the space into a little oasis. Sophie actually mixed this shade on her own!

We picked out some beautiful new pieces, but I also love that Sophie respected the original pieces I started with that I wanted to keep. We actually worked to re-appropriate many of them. For example, we are converting a vintage dresser into a wet bar by fashioning it with a glass top. This is another area where Sophie's creativity really shines.

Sophie has an amazing team of people helping bring her vision to life. She coordinated my walls being painted after we tested several colors on my walls to decide. The painter did a perfect job. She oversaw my furniture being delivered and placed in my condo. I redid my countertops and she got the stone ordered, cut and installed in less than three weeks so my place would be ready for Christmas. My place looks incredible and I couldn't have done it without Sophie. She is so committed to her clients, respects the budget she's given and pushes to finish the project she's been hired for in the timeline discussed at the beginning of the work. I am looking forward to working with Sophie on my next design projects. When it comes to design, she is everything!!
