Interior Design

"The plan included new carpeting in in the great room as well as a bedroom and hall.  It included construction of bookshelves and cabinets and painting on the cabinets and a fireplace.  It included window treatments and it also included furniture and art placement. The contractors were A+ and we are very pleased with their work.  The suggestions for the  the plan were just great and I can really appreciate the difference having an experienced decorator.  We're very pleased with the work and will use Cheryl Lynn Designs  for the next project. "

"I saw a 2 hour design consultation with Cheryl advertised as a Big Deal offer.  For several years, I had been wanting to redecorate my great room and adjoining kitchen. I have done many house renovation projects myself in the past. However, since there were many interdependent aspects of the project, I was intimidated with taking it on myself.   I bought the deal on-line in the hope that I might find someone who could eventually help me with my big project.  
Cheryl came by about a week later and spent about an hour with me to understand what I did and did not like in my current situation.  She looked at other rooms in my house that I had decorated myself to get a better understanding of my tastes and preferences.   She and I kicked around some ideas for restructuring my fireplace, addressing flooring issues and brightening my kitchen.  I felt more comfortable that my issues could be addressed and I got a good feeling that she could help me put together a plan to do it.  
I wanted a put-together look but not overly formal or ornate. It seemed clear that Cheryl can work on designs that range over a wide span to suit the client's taste.
I ended up rolling the remainder of my "Big Deal" time with Cheryl into a much bigger, more involved redecorating project.   It is currently in progress. I will review that whole large project engagement separately when it is done. "

"I first connected with Cheryl when I  bought a Big Deal for 2 hours of design consultation.   That went well so I continued to work with Cheryl for a thorough updating of a number of interlinked items in my great room, entry hall ways and kitchen.  While we were doing granite in my kitchen, she also helped me pick out granite for our master bathroom.  She created what she called a "design plan".  At first that plan seemed expensive to me, but she stayed with me in making selections, decisions and changes throughout the project over several months.  Cheryl has access to specialty suppliers and materials that I would not have found on my own.  She also has contractors that she works with and had that leverage to schedule and oversee the work.  We had a couple of snags during the work (some incorrect materials were delivered by a supplier and an item was damaged).  It was a relief to have Cheryl  involved to get things set straight.  Cheryl is a great advocate for her clients and she jumped in to make sure my issues were corrected.  Cheryl was enjoyable to work with and I'm happy with how my project has turned out.  I feel that Cheryl helped me have an outcome that reflects my tastes."

"Cheryl was the designer of our remodeled kitchen. This was a present for my spouse which she kept as a surprise when I purchased a consultation from her before Christmas. Cheryl then did the design work and then acted as General Contractor with all the trades that were used from Demo to Final Painting. Her work was flawless. Some of her contractors needed her professional guidance and motivation to get past a couple delays. Overall my Spouse is thrilled with the result. Cheryl made a difficult process tolerable and made sure everything was done perfectly. She became more than a designer she became a trusted friend and extended family member. I do not think you can have higher praise than that. I would recommend her as a General Contractor for any project she knows how everything must come together to make a design a reality. Description of work: A completely remodeled custom kitchen in a house built in 1990. New flooring, New Cabinets, New Stovetop, New Lighting. Total Job cost around $48K"

"Cheryl Lyn did a great job and I am very pleased with the new colors in my living room along with the new flooring. Highly recommended to those who want recommendations based on their home and personal preferences. She was very easy to work with, coordinated quotes and installs for the various projects, and was quick to respond to questions. Thanks Cheryl!"

"Cheryl is a lot of fun to work with.  Her ideas and color schemes were right on!  She managed to give us quality work on the budget we had to work with, staying close within that budget.  When helping us with out selections, if she couldn't bring the samples to us, she gladly met us at the store to help us in our decisions. Her contractors took much pride in their work. They are top notch and did an excellent and meticulous job, cleaning up after themselves before leaving each day. They worked well with our schedule and were more than accommodating if we changed our minds mid-point about a service they were doing.  She has been very patient with us as we wait for the kitchen counter tops to be installed so her contractor can finish our contract with the back splash. We are so pleased with everything at this point. "

"We wanted help arranging our furniture. Really, we asked too much - we had a packed house and needed to cull through things ourselves. Cheryl had lots of ideas of places to get things for a lower budget. She can throw out enough ideas to make our heads spin. That's a good thing. And she came back a second time, after we removed some of our stuff."

                                             -Victoria A

"Cheryl was absolutely awesome to work with. She responded to my request immediately and was able to save me a considerable amount of money by arranging to have my sofa repaired rather than having to have it completely reupholstered. She did this all in in a matter of just an hour or two. She was amazing and I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of any of the services she provides."

                                             -Dale H

"Great, I was very happy to have her candid advice about examining the sofa to be sure that the value was worth further unvestment. I was also very happy with the fabric selections she brought it made. It so easy. She was also really understanding and gave good advice for a house with an active dog. I felt good about wanting to balance looking good and having a home that is lived in."

"Cheryl was wonderful!! She brought a large number of samples--beautifully put together. She was patient and most helpful. Working with my construction crew, Cheryl made frequent calls to check on the progress. The end product is a perfectly LOVELY bathroom."

                                                -Jean J

"Cheryl came an listened to my concerns, as well as walked through each room to give insights to possible changes. She offerred good ideas in how to use color to make the space appear larger in bonus room, as well as how to accent the trey ceiling to canopy the room with color. She chose aqua/ turquoise, grey, beige and creamy whites as trim color. She provided picture samples of kitchen remodels depicting black/ Grey/ beige choices. She emailed sample accessories like pillows, rugs, curtains and sofa choices to help intergrate color palate throughout the house."

"I wanted to get a second opinion about what i should do in my bathroom addition and that is exactly what Cheryl gave me. She provided a 20 point list with suggestions such as "You could have a staggered height vanity". Cheryl was friendly and it was easy to work with her. She offers a more extensive design plan which i chose not to go with right now but may in the future."

"Cheryl, identified paint colors to update our home. Cheryl suggested 6 colors. They were perfect for our tastes and furnishings.
Cheryl was helpful in every way provided us with initial visit plus subsequent visits with paint swatches and helpful suggestions as to how the colors worked with the furnishings.
She was professional, customer focused and easy to work with. We would highly recommend her."

                                                  -Patricia W

"Cheryl came to our home and walked through the house, giving us a chance to show her our tastes. We asked for furniture arrangement and decorating ideas for two rooms. She took measurements and photos and responded in a timely manner with emailed suggestions for improvements. She also discussed the services she could provide when we are able to remodel, such as discounts on carpeting, etc. She was very friendly and professional."

                                                   -Margaret M

"Pointed out things that need to be fixed in my house in order to sell it.  Paint, clutter, furniture downsizing, picture placement, etc. "

                                           -Karen L

"Cheryl recently completed a wall to wall carpeting project in our master bedroom and master bedroom closet. We had used her services in our home before and went to her to consult with on the colors, texture and quality of the type of carpet best suited for us. She then selected appropriate samples and reviewed each sample with us for cost, and the contractors who would take our old carpeting out, move our furniture, install the new carpet and return the furniture to its original location. The process went as she described. Very good price for the quality carpet and the installer could not have been better. Cheryl, managed the process from beginning to end and we could not be more pleased. We would highly recommend Cheryl and the many services she provides."

                                                           -Patricia W

"Currently we are in the middle of the remodel which Cheryl is overseeing. Cheryl not only designs but also follows through on the subcontractors for a complete remodel plan. She is simply stated outstanding in everything. I will rate her and the rest of the contractors after completion of project with pictures and costs. Right now we are recommending Cheryl to all our neighbors and friends as the only person to use if you want a competent and professional remodel."

                                        -Rick S

"We were very pleased with the original color selections provided and her team of painters.
They all worked very well together and were focused on the project quality, time schedule and customer service. The project included painting the entire interior of the home.
We found Cheryl and her vendor to be very professional, customer focused, easy to work with and both kept us apprised of the project progress so there were no surprises.
We highly recommend Cheryl and her team."
