“Ariel was an absolute pleasure to work with. She listened to me, always gave me her full attention and provided great options. She was sensitive to cost concerns and functionality. I would definitely work with her again.”

Master Bathroom Remodel

“Ariel is an absolute pleasure to work with, I have partnered with her on several projects and she exceeds all expectations. She has a deep understanding of what her clients want and has been able to design on various budgets. She is a creative problem solver and designs in a way that makes the space functional & flexible for the future. I can’t wait to hire her for my next project.”

Warehouse to Office Space

Hammam H., Bayview

“Ariel did a fantastic job helping us decide what to do with our offices across the country as we navigated COVID. She addressed our needs by building a customized employee survey, analyzing the results, and coaching us with an action plan to reopen our offices. Ariel provides high-quality services as she is able to listen to her client’s needs and leverage her expertise to bring value.

 I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hardworking interior designer and workplace expert. I was really impressed with Ariel’s work and would certainly recommend her to future clients.”
