It was an absolute pleasure working with Alice on her new home in New Canaan. She has a great eye for design and understands the balance between design and functionality. She was able to make quick designs and work well within budgets and time constraints. We would highly recommend working with Alice and look forward to working with her in the future.

It has been a pleasure to colaborate with Alice and Sanny of Alice Burnham Inc. Their design sensibility beautifully adapts to each client's home and objectives with projects ranging from traditional and transitional. Highly recommended.
Sanny Warner and Alice Burnham have done several smaller projects for me - not because I wouldn't trust them to do my entire house from top to bottom - but because it was all my budget would allow. Sanny can assess taste like no one's business - give her an idea of what you are thinking and she will articulate it with perfectly coordinating fabric and paint color ideas, and unexpected color combinations that totally work. Alice is the voice of reason - have a funky bay window you want to put floor length curtains on that close completely? She will explain how it is done and has an impeccable workshop to make her vision a reality. They have decorated my master bedroom in two different houses, my family room, have helped me pick out stair runners, with furniture placement, accessory purchasing. So while my experience with them has been ad hoc, I have also seen projects of theirs where they have free reign of the entire house and THAT's where they can really work their magic by making every room distinctive, yet still cohesive. Plus, they are both exceedingly nice and professional. Love them!

I have personally worked with Alice and Sanny Warner; they have helped a few of my clients. In working with them, I have found them to be great - professional, honest, efficient and most of all, they know what they are doing. Having worked with other designers and decorators, I know that it really makes a difference when someone knows their field, and Alice and Sanny certainly do; it makes them easy to work with.
I hired this firm to redecorate of our Front Entry, Formal Living Room, Billiard Room and select paint color for adjoining Bar Area, Powder Room, redorate Girl's 'Tween' Bedroom, as well as replace couches in the Family Room. They more than met my expectations as they were open minded, provided me choice, listened to my ideas, were respectful of my opinion and style and stayed on budget . The end result for each area is beautiful and as well have a complimentary flow. I would highly recommend this firm to everyone.
Alice and Sanny are a wonderful mother-daughter team with a wealth of knowledge and expertise. They are always upbeat, easy to work with and respectful of your time and budgets. They listen and deliver options without pushing their own agenda. They are able to do traditional to modern to fit your lifestyle. They give you realistic time frames and budgets and their workroom produces beautiful quality workmanship. We have worked together on three homes thus far! The current project consisted of selecting interior paint colors for house and ordering furniture for family room.
