"Anna was awesome to work with. Her interior design work on our apartment was completed on time and budget. She efficiently coordinated the entire project. She took our suggestions and put them into play, and provided us with feedback that made our apartment look amazing. Anna was a pleasure to work with! I wish her success in all her endeavors."

"Anna has fully designed my brand new condo. That was a challenging task to give my place an outstanding look, taking into account my love for trendy, bright and extraordinary pieces, and quite a tight budget. Anna has met my expectations, and even more. The project came out absolutely fabulous! All of my friends, who see my newly remodeled place, say it looks amazing! Especially when it comes to one-of-a-kind stylish furniture pieces that were purchased in ordinary stores and then were redesigned and redecorated by Anna! I really enjoyed Anna’s creative and at the same time rational approach to interior design, her ability to listen, understand and respond to client’s needs. This resulted in a unique design with the original findings and innovations. I highly recommend Anna as a trusted design professional, and wish her success in her future projects. Thank you so much for the professionally done work!"

"Working with Anna was a delightful experience, she is extremely detail oriented and went above and beyond my expectations of the project. Anna was always conscious of the budget on the project and worked outside of the box to ensure the office space looked spectacular. I highly recommend Anna, but her attention to detail, hard work ethic and great eye speaks for itself."

"We contacted Anna to realise transformation plans for our house and its further interior decoration. What a pleasure it is to be understood, advised and guided in such manner! Aside from her professionalism and pursuit for excellence, Anna is always listening to find a beautiful, lively and practical solution. Today we live in a perfectly functional house with a decoration that resembles us. A big thank-you!"

"We have been Anna's clients for couple of years. We invited her to help us with a very challenging project. We bought a house which was a bit too big for our imagination and at the same time there were so many restrictions, the main one is that the house is over one hundred years old. It had lots of architectural elements of the past preserved. We wanted to respect the history and at the same time add the modern touch. I love flowers and my husband loves strict lines. I love pillows and my husband wants no clutter... So you get an idea. Anna had lots of challenges and she conquered them all. She respected our feelings and listen very attentively. As a result we discovered that there are indeed the solutions both of us love. We loved the process, everything was done as professionally as it could be. Anna always kept her promises and delivered everything on time and way beyond our expectations. It was extremely helpful that not only she designed the rooms, but she also managed all ordering and made sure everything fit and looked as designed. When new project, our pool house, started we immediately called Anna because we knew that Anna would find solutions for the small and oddly-shaped space and everything would look amazing. So she did. We are very happy clients!"

"Working with Anna to transform our new condo was a great experience. She designed a space that matched our taste perfectly and found some really unique pieces. I was also really impressed with how fast she completed the project and was able to do it all within our budget. Best of all, her service is turnkey - she took care of everything from beginning to end. I'd definitely hire Anna again and would recommend her to anyone looking for a really creative eye."

"I worked with Anna on the renovation of the lobby in my condo. Anna completely re-designed the lobby. Starting with her first meeting with the owners’ committee tasked with the renovation she charmed us all with her ideas and her personality. She turned out to be a leader, able to provide vision and direction, able to stay the course all the way from the beginning of the project to its fruitful conclusion. And what an amazing rejuvenation our condo received! It is my distinct pleasure to write this recommendation for Anna. She is a real professional, courteous and confident. She listens, takes in all the input possible, and then she comes back with a truly impressive design! And that is just the start. Every step of the way she provides guidance, assistance, and leadership, in a calm and completely non-intrusive, but highly efficient, way. Working with Anna is an eye opening experience. She has my wholehearted endorsement."

"Anna turned our cookie-cutter condo into a unique, one-of-a-kind design that feels like home. From start to finish, her attention to detail, personalized service, and design expertise wowed us. Anna didn't just listen to our wish list, she took every thought, idea and concept and turned it into something above and beyond what we could ever imagine. Friends and family walk into our space and continue to be amazed with the atmosphere our home creates. We highly recommend Anna to anyone who wants to take their plain and typical downtown condo to the next level in style, personality and design."

"I have had an amazing experience working with Anna in creating a unique, sophisticated townhome space. Her design surpassed anything that I had envisioned while incorporating all of my needs and desires for the project. Anna’s strength was taking the time to really listen and understand what was important to me, and then include these ideas either in design elements, textures, furniture pieces, or small detail pieces. Throughout the project Anna was always available to help with questions, sourcing, and purchasing the different elements of her design. She has created a wonderful design that has a timeless, sophisticated look yet is very comfortable because she has included all of the elements that I wanted to make it uniquely my own. Anna will take your ideas to a whole new level and give it a “WOW” factor."

"Anna created the design of the three major rooms in our house (living room, family room and master bedroom) and provided us with recommendations for the rest of the house. She has done an excellent job. She completely understood and translated our detailed needs and stylistic preferences into a beautiful and livable space. Working with Anna was easy and pleasant. We enjoyed being a part of the creative process. We appreciate that all our questions (even insignificant ones) were patiently welcomed and professionally addressed. We highly recommend Anna as a dedicated and qualified professional!"
