When my husband and I bought our house, it was overwhelming to start filling an empty canvas and making it our home. We bought furniture pieces that looked amazing in the large stores but in our low ceiling house, they didn’t feel cozy. That’s when Deepti came in with all her creativity and warmth. She understood what we were looking for and put together this perfect plan. We were instantly taken in. She helped pick the right furniture pieces and all the accessories to pull everything together. She was extremely warm and personable. Its been almost a year now and we come back every day to a deep serenity that we keep falling in love with. We love to show off our house to friends and family and at times shamelessly get the credit that truly belongs to her J If you are still thinking – Just take the leap and talk to her and trust me that you will be beyond delighted!
Deepti has been amazing to work with and she had transformed our home with her phenomenal creativity, perfect understanding of what I want, and the extra touch that the house needs. The things that set Deepti apart are her dedication and her talent. She is dedicated and went above and beyond to accommodate my busy schedule. She is extremely talented. The way she blended comfort and style has instilled the uniqueness my house needs. The colors that she chose for each of the rooms, the way she positioned the furniture and decorations that she handpicked had made all the differences. Before Deepti's work, my living room was hardly used as it was a bit dark and not so cozy. After the transformation, everyone likes to stay there - reading, working and chatting. Besides the living room, every room got its own taste and is fully utilized. My family is extremely satisfied with her work and my friends compliment the change every time they visit. Deepti is a joy to work with, I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Deepti did an amazing job with furnishing and decorating our new condo. She delivered what I expected from her and so much more. I am so happy with my decision to hire her. I interviewed 2 more designers before meeting Deepti and she truly impressed me with her professionalism and knowledge. My husband and I have very different taste and we can be quite difficult at times. Deepti was very calm, extremely thorough but never imposing in the whole process. Deepti, very patiently, went through our requirements, asked the right questions and rightfully challenged some of our decisions. She came up with just the right design plan for each of our rooms. She gave us a lot of room to make changes and kept working on the design plan until it was perfect and worked for all of us. She kept us super involved in the whole process(which is what I wanted ofcourse) and I love that I can relate to each and every piece in my house and there is an interesting story behind every small thing. Deepti is very detailed oriented, she helped us hand pick each of the accents ranging from art pieces to photo frames. Deepti is very approachable and eager to help. She has a charming and warm personality that makes it even more joyful to work with her. My house looks so put together and my friends and family can't stop praising it and I love to SHOW IT OFF!! If you are considering to hire her, I would say GO with her, you won't repent it! I will hire her in a heartbeat if we move to a different house ever. Thanks again Deepti :)
My boyfriend and I recently moved in together and we could not have created a better home than what Deepti did for us. She impressed us from the start when she spent most of our first meeting trying to understand each of our preferences and what we'd look for in our homes. By not dropping names or showing off her knowledge, she was able to truly win our trust early on. Her detailed plan for our apartment with recommendations and options for wall colors, furniture options, stores to pick from and design layout were very helpful and we ended up going with almost everything she recommended. Whenever we had ideas or questions, she was patient, open-minded, and always made herself available. This was the best part about the collaboration -- it didn't feel like a one-way street. She really listened to our inputs and gave us something we felt comfortable with. The apartment is now almost fully set-up and we LOVE coming home every evening. We can't recommend Deepti enough! You can't go wrong with someone like her who is a great combination of talent, listening skills, dedication and being super easy to work with. Thank you again, Deepti!
