I have always been wary of commitment when it comes to decorating, which explains why, after 3 years, the vast majority of furnishings in our new(er) home have remained somewhat "temporary". That is, until recently, when I started working with Rebekah. She is amazingly talented and creative, and does a phenomenal job of incorporating my style into her ideas. Her expertise and easy going personality make the whole process a joy. Her confidence is contagious. She completely eliminates my fear of making a decorating decision that I'll later regret.Ours is a work in progress. We started in the kitchen and hearth room. Rebekah has guided me in choosing furniture that is beautiful, yet functional and practical, and always within our budget--no easy task in a household with two young, active boys, and two dogs! I will absolutely continue working with Rebekah until every room in our house is full of the beautiful and unique pieces and accessories that perfectly reflect my style and provide the cozy comfort of HOME that I want for my family.I couldn't be any happier with a designer, and would wholeheartedly, and without reservation, recommend her to anyone looking for an incredibly knowledgable, highly experienced, professional, and fun to work with interior designer!

We have worked with Rebekah on multiple projects and we continue to be amazed with how effortlessly she navigates a design or renovation project. Rebekah is extremely talented as a designer, but more importantly, she has the unique skillset required to understand an initial idea/vision, execute on it and often create a finished product that far exceeds what we could initially imagine. Rebekah's ability to assimilate our style but challenge our comfort zone with pieces we would not have chosen for ourselves has been great. We often have found that the selections she made that seemed out of character for us not only are our favorite items, but really the key ingredients to pulling everything together. As a project manager, Rebekah has a great list of vendors and can manage any project efficiently with great communication and follow up. My only regret in working with Rebekah was not letting go of the reigns completely on our first project together. Since then I have realized to let her "run the show" and she never disappoints. In fact, the savings she has found for us along each of our journeys together has far exceeded the cost of her service!! I strongly encourage you to hire Rebekah for your next project. Trust the process and know you have an amazing professional in your corner to turn your vision into a reality.

We used Rebekah to update a house we moved into this year. She was so easy to work with. The lighting she picked out for us is simply amazing. We get compliments on it every time someone comes into our home. We have 20 foot ceilings in part of our house and it was not an easy task to light it properly. She also changed the stain on our cabinets and flooring. She knew the perfect color and it could not have turned out better. My favorite thing Rebekah did was to put dark stained plantation shutters throughout the house. I absolutely LOVE them. I feel like I am in a brand new home now. Rebekah was very professional and fun to work with. I highly recommend her!

My house built in 1985 needed updates in the kitchen, master bath and powder bath. In the kitchen I wanted a major update without a complete tear-out and in the bathrooms new vanities, sinks, faucets, lighting and flooring. Rebekah worked within my budget and taste and found esthetically pleasing styles in cabinets, stain, appliances, granite, backsplash, lighting and more. Rebekah was flexible in researching options, bringing samples, accompanying me to vendors, and even supervising construction when I was out of town. Rebekah followed up on details, was conscientious, and a pleasure to work with. I recommend Rebekah Schaaf at the highest level.

I had an excellent design experience with Rebekah Schaaf. She took the time to get to know us and our taste in furnishings. Rebekah worked with our color scheme and incorporated our pieces into her design. It took me a long time to realize I needed help in finishing my project. She was very patient in the multiple iterations of selecting the final pieces. Rebekah was very receptive to our comments and respected our choices when it came to design, color and price range. Through the entire process she always kept us informed of the status of the project. If asked, 'Would you work with her again?' My reply would be, 'Of course. I wouldn't hesitate.'

I have three hall nitches in my home. They have been empty for about 6 years. I was waiting to find exactly what I wanted. I descriped what I was looking for to Rebekah. She found the perfect fit within a month. I am extremely excited and happy with her choices and her work. She also helped me put together a nine foot entry, 3 tiered vase. Her ideas and the all together look is amazing. She was able to fill each level with different items for each season and redecorate it beautifully. She will either continue to change it for me for the seasons, or has given me great ideas of how to do it myself. She really has a creative eye that is great at pictureing exactly what I was thinking.

Rebekah has helped us remodel a patio home we have just purchased. She coordinated almost everything for us while we were still living out of town. She scheduled everything precisely and within a short window of time and it was done on time. We are now enjoying our "new home" and it looks beautiful. Her creative talent is amazing.

I have worked with several designers in the past and Rebekah has been a complete joy to work with. She is talented, has an incredible eye for detail and certainly knows how to listen. She has a wealth of talented subcontractors that help bring her vision to reality. I look forward to working with her on my next project.

Rebekah did an excellent job with window coverings in my living room. She allowed me to explore different options and never made me feel rushed to make a decision. I love my final product!

Rebekah provided her professional services with idea consultation and designing of holiday adornment for my home. Her visual concepts and expertise allowed her to customize the decor for an individual and unique presentation specific to my own style. She has the ability to transform any home, office or space with individual style or taste. She is very good at what she does, and has an "eye" for showcasing something special! Highly recommend her! Thanks Rebekah!

Rebekah came in and looked at my house and my style and found the perfect stair carpeting. It was a super easy decision which looks fantastic in my house.
