We bought a house that was built originally for another client, and Chris was his decorator. In that capacity, she selected all the finishes--paint colors, hardware, lighting fixtures, etc. She did a beautiful job, and it was one of the things that helped make our decision to buy the house. When we moved in, I contacted her to help me with some additional touches (stair runner, some furniture pieces, etc), and she was lovely to work with. She never imposes her own style, really listens to what I have in mind, and is easygoing, with no pressure, ever. I have since recommended her to several of my friends, and will continue to do so--as well as call her for my own design needs. She is totally professional, and a complete pleasure to work with.
I’m very, very glad I chose Chris of CCB Designs to guide me through the selections of all the finishes for our “extreme makeover” remodel project (paint colors, floor tiles, shower enclosures, counter tops, back splash, light fixtures, etc.) She was willing to be very flexible her level of involvement in the project. When the project started, I thought I had a good idea of what I wanted. After an initial get-acquainted session to get the overall feel and style of the house, Chris did a good job of introducing me to options for me to consider that were a little “outside the box” for me – then she gave me time to look around on my own before coming up with final selections. She has good contacts with all the suppliers. She was not at all pushy with her ideas. With her encouragement, my vision evolved and I am very pleased with the final result. Shopping for tile, lights, etc. with Chris was like shopping with a friend. I highly recommend Chris – whether you are looking for a more “turn-key” designer service or just guidance on what to consider and where to look.
Chris has been a great resource for designing our house. She was involved in the design of the home when the builder completed the house and we hired her when we brought the house. She has been extremely helpful and stayed within our budget. Everyone who has seen the house has been impressed.
Thanks Chris for all your help.
Chris has worked with me with multiple projects - most recently a refresh of our master bedroom. This was particularly challenging (and Chris was up for it!) because we (she) needed to combine my husband's very formal taste (keeping paintings, furniture and rugs) with my more transitional taste. The project included paint selection, window coverings - and an installation solution - to meet both functional requirements and design requirements, reupholstery of chairs (and fabric selection) as well as selection of coordinating bedding fabrics for custom bedding. Chris expertly navigated my husband/my tastes and found fabrics and solutions that we are both absolutely delighted with. She is a trusted advisor who listens to her clients and meets their requirements, matches their tastes - AND their budgets - and exceeds expectations. She is also expert at managing expectations along the way - keeping clients informed of potential bumps in the road - so that there are no unwanted surprises. She has formed partnerships with craftspeople that deliver impeccable quality products. We are ecstatic with our beautiful finished room and I'm already planning the next house project with Chris!
