“When we initially saw Paula’s interior design in a stunning Showcase of Homes, we were very impressed and intrigued! We had just started our own home renovation and were lost. My husband and I desperately needed direction and vision from someone who could elevate our home to the next level. Paula not only has a keen eye for design but she somehow incorporates a level of visual complexity and beauty in the spaces that we could have never achieved by ourselves! She has seamlessly merged my taste for modern, clean lines with my husband’s industrial, masculine style. Although the renovations are far from completed, we know that the end result is going to be simply jaw-dropping!!! Paula does not disappoint and with that being said, we absolutely can not wait to see her transform our house into an elegant home we can be proud of and LOVE!”
