Design Matters
Berkeley, CA Space Planning Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 31, 2012
“We hired Julie to do a full remodel of the public spaces in our home. It meant she had to have a strong understanding of how we live and what our hopes for the final product were - as well as being able to look at the current space and envision changes that would deliver on our vision of a peaceful home with a touch of drama. Julie delivered magnificently! The design won awards, but more importantly the final product exceeded all our expectations and continues to do so. She is unbelievably creative - coming up with ideas like a backsplash that draws ooohs and aaahs from anyone who sees it. I love her creativity, her passion and excitement for what she does - and her ability to come up with original ideas that you won't see anywhere else. Most importantly, she always kept our preferences, our needs, our vision at the forefront. I never really knew what her own design esthetic is. It was all about us. I highly recommend Julie and continue to use her for projects in our home. In fact, she is working on a redo of our master bedroom and bath right now.”

“I am working with Eugene Sakai and his team at Studio S Squared Architecture on our remodel project. Our project is now under construction and not yet completed yet. At our first meeting, Eugene has already done his research on our local building code and requirements. He shared with us many valuable materials on design process. He also released the whole list of his clients so that we can contact any of them for references. These up front disclosures of information made us feel more comfortable with him. Eugene is a good listener. This is one of the most important factors we decided to hire him. During the design process, he has the ability understand what we need and he is very responsive. He also encouraged us to use Houzz to share ideas. We created a few ideabooks to show Eugene the styles we’d like and he also collected a few photos to give us ideas of different options in design. Eugene has a great sense of space, light and general flow. He is a nice and inspiring person to work with.”

“Culbertson Durst Interiors consistently presents designs that are innovative, imaginative but never self conscious. the spaces are comfortable and, most importantly, in a human scale. if "form" does, in fact, follow "function" then this team reflects an aesthetic that is modern, sleek, and practical, achieving a fine balance between comfort and utility, wherein line, shape, and color, texture fold into a rich progression. the many styles exhibited on their site, all share a common signature: strong cohesive design principle. i have visited most of these sites personally; they all look as impressive in person as they do in the documented photographs.”
Niche Interiors

“I found Niche Interiors on Apartment Therapy magazine while searching for a small space designer in San Francisco. My experience with Niche and what I learned while working with Jennifer has literally changed my life. From our first meeting at my tiny apartment Jennifer saw possibilities; I was downsizing from a two bedroom condo to a Jr. one bedroom with no dining area, a tiny kitchen, and no place to work, she had to incorporate all of this into my main living area. She provided excellent Excel sheets with the furniture, fixtures, flooring, lighting, etc. this was very useful in the budget process. I was able to stick pretty close to my initial budget. I chose to exceed my budget because I decided to redo the wood floors and I had to have a Jonathan Adler light fixture. I do not regret these choices. I also want to state how responsive Niche was at every step during the process. I had many questions and these were answered, if not within hours, within a day. I highly recommend Niche Interiors. They are knowledgeable, have a great attitude and most importantly a keen ability to really tap into a client's personal style. ”
Design Loft Company

“Our 55-year-old kitchen was in dire need of remodeling, but we had gotten bogged down for more than a year in the excess of options (cabinets, tiles, flooring, etc.) and lack of a clear plan. Hellen did a site visit, asked about our kitchen-use habits and kitchen wish-list, and came up with three designs that not only made the most of our galley space but expanded it by adding customized cupboards below a large window. She solved our cabinet dilemma in ten minutes with the suggestion of the perfect wood finish and door design; recommended a line of quartz composite countertops we hadn't known about and decided to use; and gave prompt advice about details such as tiles, sink size, and under-cabinet lighting. Her ability to reimagine the layout of space, knowledge of available products, and attention to client needs make her easy and delightful to work with.”
The Proposed Plan

“This being our first major remodel to our home of 15 years, the planning and execution was a very daunting task for us because it included our Kitchen, Living room and Family room. We were not sure whether the decisions we take was going to be correct. That is when we met Swati at a booth in an event in Cupertino. Working with Swati was the best decision we took. She helped us with the planning, designing and working with our contractor throughout the project. She came up with practical ideas for our Kitchen. She recommended the stores from where we could buy materials and accompanied us while we shopped for appliances, flooring other major purchases for our project. Swati was always punctual for all appointments and was clear in all her communications. We highly recommend Swati for your home projects.”
The Home Co.

“Hired Home Co. as a DESIGN-BUILD team to remodel my 100 hr old craftsman house in Rockridge (nice hip neighborhood in Oakland). I was selling the house and it needed some serious TLC to try and fetch top notch prices. Jennifer (the design arm of the design build) was nothing but TOP-NOTCH in her abilities to communicate, design, and bring my understated bungalow to the GEM that now stands there today. Since I was living >200mi from the project as it was getting done I had to solely rely on Jennifer's amazing "eye" to make sure each and every detail was perfect-- and it was. She transformed a 2BR/1.5BA reasonable house into an amazing 3BR/2BA home with an incredible livable space garage as well... I could not have been happier with the results. Steve (her husband the BUILD arm of the team) was the general contractor (RFC Renovations & Design) for the project and as with Jennifer and his team was also of the upmost highest quality. On time every day. Did super quality work and kept project moving to meet deadlines in order to sell in the time frame proposed by my realtor. DESIGN: Thoughtful, tasteful decisions and careful planning on where to make walls move or doors and windows placed including new skylights were all part of this project and each decision was all made with the eye toward maximizing sale value. She had ingenious ways of making my awkward original floor plan to a completely re-worked masterpiece. The open-space concept unifying my dining room-kitchen-living room could not have come out any better. COMMUNICATION: Both Jennifer and Steve sent daily or nearly daily updates and emails and phone calls when needed to keep me abreast of any major decision points or cost issues. I could not have been happier. Compared to other contractors and designers I've used they are BY FAR the most responsive. QUALITY: Workmanship and eye for the tiniest details were also all part of Jennifer's oversight. Nothing slipped through the cracks... HONESTY: Never once did I ever have an issue with bills or overages or change orders that weren't fully explained ahead of time. Unlike many in the 'trades', Home Co can and should be trusted to the highest degree. Always straightforward, no hidden fees, no hidden agenda. OVERALL: You would be hard pressed to find a better design-build team anywhere. I can vouch personally having did this remodel with Jenn AND doing my own remodel where I live (at the same time!), I only wish I could have hired Jenn and Steve for my own house... they are AMAZING and do incredible work and deserve the HIGHEST OF ACCOLADES.”

“Best designer out there. I bought an older house that needed a facelift. Bathrooms, kitchen, floors, fixtures... After a bad experience with another professional, I came in contact with Juliana. She was exactly what I needed and was the best thing in the whole experience. She immediately understood what I wanted and my goals. RESPONSIVENESS: Very responsive and timely, she managed the project from the drawing board to the end. Ahe helped me every step on the way. I never had a problem contacting her and she was quick to solve any problems on the way. She was very transparent and and reasonable with her fees. PLANING: I already had a basic floor plan and had put a lot of thought on it. She quickly identified areas that could be improved and within days had a new fantastic plan. MATERIALS: When it came to choosing cabinets, stones, colors, wood, pluming fixtures she was excellent in choosing a limited number of top quality options, all appropriate with my taste. She is very knowledgeable about materials and cost conscious. Helped me getting top notch things for a reasonable price. CONTACTS: execution is as important and planning. Juliana knows the best person for each particular job. Each particular subcontractors seems to respect her and address her requests in a timely and professional manner. I can trust her recommendations blindly. FINAL RESULT: My kitchen and bathrooms not only look like a magazine cover, but are also are extremely functional and easy to clean. I cook a lot and I can tell she thought of every single detail. Things are always where I need them. She spent a lot of time with the cabinet manufacturer to make sure the cabinets were perfect. She also made sure the cabinet guy came back to fix minor details that were not up to her standards. She was great in adapting the functionality to the cooking devices and equipment I already had. My house is exactly what I wanted and I could not be happier. I hope she posts some pictures so you guys can see what a phenomenal job she has done.”

“I recently bought a home in Berkeley and needed a designer with whom I could communicate my ideas and interests and who would translate that input into a fully furnished home. I was living on the East Coast during most of the planning and decision making but this never posed a problem for JIll and her team. I moved into my new home last April. Jill McCoy and her team of professionals surpassed my highest expectations. I have worked with designers in the past so this experience was not my first in home decorating. It is truly an art to do design work well but to work with someone 3000 miles away and to translate that into a space that feels like home is exceptional.”
