I was lucky enough to find Courtney eleven years ago and I have been using her services ever since. Over the years, Courtney’s expertise in decorating has created an amazing space in my home that not only I love, but everyone who visits. She listens carefully to the vision I have for each room and she always comes up with a variety of amazing products that I struggle choosing from because everything seems perfect. More importantly, she is patient, listens to the budget I have in mind and never pushes a certain look. I have come to the understanding as much fun as it is to try and do on my own, I realized there were too many mistakes I made that resulted in me not liking and ultimately having her step in and fix. I recently purchased a new home and look forward to spending many years with Courtney to create another beautiful home everyone will love, especially me.
