Design on Your Time

Design on Your Time

Design Soul-utionS is happy to work on residential projects of all sizes; no project is too small... or too big. From a single room to an entire house, we are eager to Illuminate Your Soul Through Design. Because we know life doesn't stand still for a redesign, we understand that projects might need to be undertaken in phases. We can plan out your color palette, style of design and all other facets of the project, but execute them one room at a time, if that better suites your lifestyle and/or budget.

Susan redesigned my fireplace as well as adding recessed lighting in my living room and office. She brought over tile samples and coordinated all the work with the contractors.  She was a pleasure to work with and listened patiently. She responded promptly to all my questions and concerns.  I highly recommend her.  My job was a small one and it was handled well.  I plan on contacting her again for future projects.

I feel like its just me, but I know better. I could tell Susan was really getting what I was looking for. She has that ability. And she also was really good at saying no, but in a nice way. She kept me on track and kept the home remodeling on track with a consistent theme.  She is a pleasure to work with and I love my newly redesigned townhouse. Thank you Susan

This is the second time we have worked with Susan. She first did our home 13 years ago. We were looking to update our home and what an update we did! It turned into a full home re-design. She understands how we like to live in our house and is very receptive to our visions. Susan is very professional, knowledgeable, creative and just fun to be around, especially on the all day home excursions! It's evident that she genuinely cares about our home, because she works tirelessly to ensure that every detail is tailored and customized to fit our taste. Although she has her own vendors she uses, she has no problem working with any that we wanted to use for a particular job. We had some built in pieces that we were able to refinish to have an updated look. She was able to blend existing furnishings with new items and transform the look. Susan has some great connections in the industry, so we always felt that we were getting very fair prices. If you are looking for a designer that will

We have purchased a home in Parkland in April of 2017, and needed to move in by the first of August. We hired Susan in June, to turn our new home into a piece of paradise... and paradise she created (in less than two months)!!! Susan is a workaholic with amazing vision! She worked very close with us, making my wife and I really happy with her creativity and professionalism! We felt safe throughout the duration of the whole project, knowing that she is taking care of business! The teams and vendors that she works with were great, delivering the highest quality product and services possible. Susan was scheduling deliveries, receiving product and overseeing the contractors' work. We highly recommend Susan! Two words: complete package!!!

Susan helped me with 3 bathrooms as well as some some work in our living room and a repainting of the entire interior of our home. She has a good vision of what the outcome should be. You can trust her instincts. She works well with the contractors, staying on top of them until all work is complete.
