Sherry of SJDesigns Interiors did an amazing job on our project! She excels in making sure space is utilized efficiently and effectively, and with the customer's taste and preferences at the forefront of every decision. She is a consummate professional and makes sure every detail is perfect in order to meets her clients' expectations. We asked her to design a patio so we could have an area for entertaining and eating outside. Not only did she come up with a creative way to extend the roof and create a covered, outdoor living area, she was also able to design the space to include an outdoor kitchen and fire pit area. She even helped us find an architect, engineer and contractor to take on the project. After seeing her ideas, we expanded the project to include a re-model of our house. Her knowledge of building materials and colors has resulted in a stunning new home. Sherry helped us design a new master bedroom addition and change the front facade of our house. She helped us pick outside stone trim and building materials, flooring, tiles, granite and even window and door colors. She is a great listener and very quickly learned what we liked and seemed in tune with our style. This was evident in every idea and suggestion she presented to us. I cannot give SJDesigns Interiors a high enough recommendation. We would not hesitate to use them again!
"Sherry is an amazing person to work with. Her knowledge of colors, interior decoration, different quality vendors to choose from and her professionalism helped us build our first custom home with a limited budget. We are proud owners of a home whose colors and materials were brilliantly chosen by Sherry and has made our home stand out as one of the best in the neighborhood."
"Sherry helped us with numerous decisions concerning the redecoration of our home. We found her to be a talented designer who puts much thought, time, energy and sensitivity into her client's needs. She understands the importance of working within the client's budget, providing many ideas and suggestions that are aesthetic as well as pragmatic. We most highly recommend her."
"Working with SJ Designs gave us the opportunity to see potential in our home that we had never seen before. Sherry's ability to understand our needs and translate them into ideas, floor plans and design boards was inspiring. This enabled my husband and I to make our biggest home financial decision to date. Thanks for being such a great resource!"
"Sherry was invaluable in finding the right color for difficult situations in our house. Though we were very much of the '"do it yourself" mindset, and had spent many hours on our own researching and testing color combinations for all of the rooms, some of the problems defied solution - most importantly, the master bathroom. Sherry was able to assess the situation, understand our tastes and objectives, and identify a special color for the bathroom cabinetry that worked perfectly. In addition to her skills as a designer, Sherry also brought another set of skills to our project - the ability to serve as an advisor, facilitator and negotiator through the process of implementation with our contractor. Sherry has tremendous experience and abilities in "human relations and project management."
"Sherry has helped us in many ways - interior design, ideas, sourcing, etc. In addition, Sherry is one of the best women we've known combining artistic talent with business acumen. She approaches projects with discipline, structure, deadlines and cost-management. We know from having worked with Sherry in the corporate world, and we know having worked with Sherry in her more artistic endeavors."
"Thank you for all your efforts and vision to make our home as elegant as it is today. From the bare walls and construction, it was transformed into a palace that we are proud of. I appreciate the hours you spent to select the paint, moldings, carpeting, colors, wallpaper, drapery and fixtures. Our home is truly a showplace I always dreamed it could be."
"The room you worked on for the ASID 2003 showhouse was beautiful beyond belief - truly outstanding! The design and color scheme and the way everything was integrated, from the many antiques and outstanding window treatment, to the faux finish on the walls- it was perfect. " "The staging you did for my home prior to the party was exceptional and so creative!"
"She has excellent ideas and does not push you to buy goods through her, nor to do things the way she imagines them. She gives you ideas for designs and changes you can make. She is respectful of your taste and really works around your schedule, especially when you have small children - I would highly recommend her."
