Featured Reviews for Interior Designers and Decorators in Grand Rapids
Spectrum Interiors
Interior Designers and Decorators in Grand Rapids
"OVERVIEW We live on a lake near a golf course. We had hired several different architects at different times to come up with plans to expand and enhance our lake residence. We finally came upon one that had a design that we liked, and subsequently commenced construction. At this early stage of construction, Steve happened to call “out-of-the-blue” to ask how things were, as we had not talked to him for a few years. I filled him in on what we were doing and he was interested in seeing it. He came to the site and overviewed the architectural plans. Since we had worked together years before, he was keenly aware of the furniture that we would be using. I have a very ornate oriental table that is inlayed with mother-of-pearl. Steve felt very strongly that the architectural details did not mesh at all with the furniture. He asked if the architect ever inquired as to the type of furniture that I have, and I told him “No”. Steve said that was a big mistake on the architect’s part. Because of that one small question that Steve asked, it saved us from going in a direction that would have not ended up well. Thank God, he has a very holistic vision! He sees and makes sure that both the architecture and interior design work together as a unit and complement each other. He always says, “You can never really separate architecture from interior design.” Well, to make a long story shorter, Steve ended up designing everything from custom moldings, a custom stairway and handrails, three custom fireplace surrounds, and custom bookcases so everything would be conducive as architectural backdrops and tie-ins to all the furniture that would come later. Wow! And, talking about furniture, he ended up designing several custom furniture pieces. Steve designed custom nightstands for the master bedroom, a Tansu chest for the master bedroom, and an armoire for the master bedroom. Their style and elegance are impressive. In addition, he created a pair of wonderful consoles for sitting right next to the library chaises', as well as a pair of very unique drum tables between the chaises". In short, he envisioned and designed five very exclusive pieces of furniture. Steve created all the wonderful and comprehensive architectural millwork. All the walls and the cathedral ceilings in the major rooms are covered in custom wallcoverings hand-made in Italy and Japan. The master bedroom walls and cathedral ceiling are covered in hand-painted silk wallcovering … very elegant! There is such an immense value added to the final finished look and feel of all the rooms when Steve outshines his peers by incorporating the electrical and specific lighting plans with the floor plan and furniture layout. Rarely, if ever, do interior designers know to do this. Our architects never considered it! How can you, when you don't know what the final finished rooms are going to be like with all the furniture in place? That's where Steve comes in! Nothing looks right if you don't light it right. It's become a wonderful environment for living, especially when you couple it up with living on a lake as well. Without Steve, it would never have come to fruition, and we would have missed a great opportunity! We are so appreciative of his time, talent, wisdom, insight, perception, vision, attention to detail, and most of all, his ability to see things done before they become a reality. Because of his knowledge and having carpentry skills as well, he relates very well to contractors and tradesmen. All I can say is WOW! What a blessing to have the right people and the right designer! The look he developed is an extension of the tastes, personalities, lifestyle, and dreams of my husband and me. Steve is truly a master of his craft! ABILITY TO SEE THINGS IN THEIR COMPLETED FORM BEFORE THEY ARE FINISHED This particular attribute that Steve has was extremely beneficial for me. It’s challenging for me to fully explain it, but I will do my best. Steve has a very remarkable, valuable, and precious gift. He has a knack to not only envision beautiful interiors, but also the ability to fully explain his ideas in careful and accurate details before they are transformed into reality. I personally do not have that skill, nor could I picture the total finished project in Technicolor before we met. By using specific words, he helped me create a picture in my mind of what he had envisioned. This is a gift to and for him as a designer, but also for the recipient. In this case, I was the recipient. If you are wise, you will be a recipient, too. He is precise with his word choices. I appreciated him taking the time to initially ask the right questions so that we were able to get the best results. Would you want to go on an expensive design and decorating journey in uncharted waters without an expert guide?! Do you prefer a guide who can see and visualize things before you arrive at the destination? One who can explain it to you in crisp detail, so that you can see it and feel it before you get there? It’s both an exciting and secure feeling to experience! Honestly, I’ve read so many reviews here on Houzz. The majority of the comments include “So and so designer is just awesome and wonderful!” Yet, I don’t see it in their work. I have been to New York City and have immersed myself in some of the best interior design work available. It’s only when you’ve seen and been exposed to the best that you can accurately judge the rest. CUSTOM FURNITURE DESIGN There are many cases in a home where nothing on the market can be found to elicit the right connotation, look, and feel. One can look the world over to find that perfect piece of furniture and not find it. This is where custom furniture design comes into play. It’s absolutely wonderful when you can find within one designer the talent to create great interiors which have ambience. To also have that same person design furniture to go perfectly with it. . . WOW! It reminds me of French history where the Architects/Interior Designers Percier and Fontaine designed not only interiors but all the furniture as well. One can find these types of designers in New York, but it’s a rare treasure to find one in southwest Michigan. Steve has a great command of form, shape, proportion, and texture. He has a very fine-tuned eye. This is of immense benefit and value to any discerning client. For the master bedroom, Steve designed a custom Japanese stairway chest that was fabricated in three parts. Another piece is an armoire with a gold-leaf arched top and carved finials on the front corners. The double doors were subdivided by moldings in increasingly smaller dimensions moving toward the top and inset with burl veneer and unique hardware pulls. One of my favorites is a pair of custom lacquered nightstands done in an oriental design with beautiful hand-painted oriental scenic fronts. It is designed with radius corners and a scalloped open area beneath the top. The three drawers below are all sitting on a scalloped base. The Donghia chaises’ in the library are covered in a hand-blocked, large-scale English chintz. Next to those, Steve designed a pair of consoles with a stepped body covered in Afromosia veneer. These have silk swags on both sides. On the corners were gold-leaf spheres. This base portion sits on a plinth of birds-eye maple with Japanese calligraphy. A marble top is supported by studs which makes it appear to be floating. The marble top rests in a frame that is reeded and gilded. Steve also designed some beautiful cylinder tables that are hand-carved for texture. They are gold-leafed, and wrapped in a suede “napkin” with tassels on the corners and the addition of lion’s head pulls for easy moving. It was a treat and a pleasure to have something designed exclusively for me! P.S. Check out Steve’s YouTube video, where he has his work side by side with the work of French Architects/Interior Designers Percier and Fontaine. His YouTube design channel is “DesignAmbiance.” LIGHTING DESIGN When the architect designed my home with cathedral ceilings and a two-story dining room, there was no inclusion of lighting other than what was required by Michigan State codes. We thought that the electrician would automatically know to create lighting for our particular needs. We were fortunate that we started working with Steve before we needed that. Steve said, “It’s always a bad idea to have an electrician do the lighting plan, as they don’t know where furniture and other items will be finally placed. In addition, the fact is electricians are not lighting designers.” We ended up with a marvelous lighting plan keyed to the furniture placement. It brought the interior magnificently to life, and it’s more alive now than ever before! Every bulb or lamp was chosen for its’ effect regarding brilliance, color rendition, and textural revelation. Anyone building a new home or remodeling an existing space that doesn’t create and use a personalized lighting plan is just in the dark. Without incorporating a specialized lighting plan, you’ll never attain the full level of presentation, even if you place your expensive furniture and accessories in it. Steve is the only one that I’ve found who has a total vision. You need Steve’s skills and talents to showcase the particular elements, features, and characteristics in your home. CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING Steve’s artwork selection and custom framing is fantastic! Not only has he designed custom frames and then built them from scratch, but he’s constructed intricate stacked and multiple frames for artwork. His ability to coordinate accessories as well as have artistic inventiveness produces a one-of-a-kind presentation which promotes a cohesive feel within the space. BOOK I recently read portions of Steve’s forthcoming book. It is absolutely fantastic! There’s lots of information that needs to get out there to correct a lot of errors and wrong thinking in the realm of interior design and decoration. It is all about the magic of ambiance and how to achieve it in your home. Your home is the only environment that you can truly control and the only environment that affects your life the most. ARTICLES I want to inform people that Steve has a lot of excellent articles online. He is a Diamond-Level Expert Author on EzineArticles.com. I believe he has around 25 articles written there. I have read many of them, and they are truly excellent. It is definitely worth investing your time to read them. SEMINARS If you haven’t been to one of Steve Adamko’s interior design seminars, you are really missing out. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and informative, but he’s very energetic and animated, too. His funny and humorous personality shines through in his presentation as well. When he gets done explaining things, you would actually need help … to misunderstand him. He's that good. WEBINARS Webinars are some of the best ways to learn and be enlightened on different topics. Steve’s interior design webinars are full of information, helpful tips, and insights. There are designers out there practicing that don’t even know their stuff. A large number of them don’t implement (or know) the stuff that Steve teaches. Many “designers” are thinking they are professionals, yet they are operating without the requisite knowledge. I can see why so many clients are deceived in thinking so much out there is awesome when it truly isn’t. TELESEMINARS For pure information and for those great question and answer sessions in regards to interior design and decorating, you’ll have to partake of Steve Adamko’s teleseminars. They are very insightful. You’ll definitely experience a variety of “ah-ha” moments!"

Bayberry Cottage
Interior Designers and Decorators in Grand Rapids
"I have worked with Amber and Gwen on two condos which required different strategies. Our needs for the first condo focused on maximizing the space as it is small and the focus of the renovation/decoration was to create a warm and welcoming environment that was casual as the condo is in a resort town. We had the most fun working with them as they are creative, classy, intelligent, and extremely knowledgeable. We trusted their advice as they knew what we wanted. They created a wonderful place with accessories, bedding, furniture, lighting that made our place a showcase at only 1000 square feet. We wanted to use our paintings from Brasil. The attention to detail - buttons on window fixtures that matched the materials on furniture, the color scheme that went throughout the condo, working with the contractor to ensure that everything blended to mazimize space - was amazing. Because of what they did at this condo, we asked them if they would help us on another condo. The challenge for Gwen and Amber was that we lived in China at the time, had bought a condo sight unseen, and we wanted to have major renovations done to the kitchen, bathroom, and mudroom as well as having them integrate all of our "treasures" from around the world - furniture, pottery, paintings and other acccessories from China, Korea, Africa, Brazil, Middle East, and Europe without ever having seen these treasures. Gwen and Amber took on the challenge and worked with us virtually to create a home that reflected our style where we could entertain and make our guests feel at home too. Not only did they handle all the decorating and interior design - Gwen managed the contractors for us. Everything came together on time and within our budget. Gwen is a master at visualizing what your needs are, offering options with a range of costs so that you have choices, advising on what blends together or not. She is also very patient and diplomatic when we wanted to add more Chinese furniture. She would listen and then patiently explain that we were looking for a more global look and not just Asian. Then she would come back with a piece of furniture like the Chinese one that would be a better match and quality. You could not find two interior designers who are more professional, creative, cost-conscious, and elegant than Amber and Gwen. They are trustworthy, innovative, and have an amazing work ethic. They work 24/7 so it was always easy to contact them virtually. Also, they are a lot of fun to work with as they have a positive, can-do attitude in getting things done in the least stressful way as you work through all the details to make your home what you want it be be. They took our ideas and made them better. I would use them again if I bought another home regardless where I lived as I know that they can and will work virtually. I would highly recommend them as I know they can do anything that they set their minds to in helping someone create their dream home. I bet they could even do offices too!!! You can see our living room and dining room on their website. We love what they did to both of our places. They are a great team!"

What does an interior designer do?


A good home design professional will hone your style down to its very essence and be able to choose a functional layout that feels natural to you. Interior design companies can be involved as much or as little as the client desires. Many clients who hire an interior decorator in Grand Rapids — particularly those who are remodeling — have a good sense of how the room should look and what products they should use. Often clients will insist that interior decorators use the products already present in the house. Other times a designer will need to start from scratch — especially if this is a newly purchased or just-built home. An interior design company will need to figure out exactly what the client needs, which includes organizing rooms, picking flooring and wall colors, and finding furniture to complement it all. Sometimes that means he or she will have to recruit help from other Grand Rapids home professionals to help create the perfect look for your renovation. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of interior designers & decorators: Architects & Building Designers, General Contractors, Home Builders, Design-Build Firms, Photographers.

Do your research before meeting with an interior designer or home decorator in Grand Rapids. Ask yourself what you want your space to become and what it will be used for. Figure out the extent of what you need help with, what your must-haves are and what your budget is. Interior design services can add up fast, so be up front with a potential design firm or individual from the beginning. Also, pick an interior decorator that fits your style. Browse through the portfolios of different interior design firms and decide if you would live in those houses. Just because you like something doesn’t mean you could live in it. There's a big difference! You can find more interior designers & decorators in East Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Wyoming and Battle Creek.

Questions to ask when you meet with local interior designers:


  • Can you give me a referral? (It makes a big difference to talk with a client who's worked with the designer before.)
  • Can I see your design portfolio?
  • When will the home renovation be done?
  • Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat rate, or use the cost-plus method or a mixed method?
