TESTIMONIALS

 
Only with Meera’s help did the project achieve its full potential, and we now feel like we live in a house you might see in a magazine.

"Meera turned our remodel into something that people are always commenting on. We knew we wanted to remodel and had an idea how to do that from a structural point of view, but we had no idea how to finish it and have it be a place we would enjoy living in and looking at every day. That's where Meera came in.

She spent time talking to us about what we liked and how we thought we might use the space. She helped us think through functional issues like how we would move around and work in the kitchen. She made suggestions on kitchen cabinet and island layout and positioning of the appliances, as well as design of built in shelving and lighting in the dining room and living room areas. And then she pulled it all together by working with us on selecting the finishing touches that really made it shine.

We could have completed the remodel project with just our architect and contractor, but it would have just been a remodel. Only with Meera's help did the project achieve its full potential, and we now feel like we live in a house you might see in a magazine. Thanks Meera!"

I would definitely recommend Meera. She is hard working – a professional, dedicated designer – and best of all it was a real pleasant experience to work together.

"Meera has helped me with all interior design decisions with the remodel of two bathrooms in my home, including lighting plans, color selections, flooring, accessories etc for the rest of the house. I have had many compliments regarding how tastefully it was done.

Another project Meera tackled was staging my condominium for sale. She did such a good job of staging that I considered leaving it off the market! All Real Estate Agents were impressed with her work as well!

I would definitely recommend Meera. She is hard working – a professional, dedicated designer – and best of all it was a real pleasant experience to work together. She is now helping us with our new office."

Meera works with the homeowners to translate their vision into a reality that they couldn’t have dreamt of themselves. Using the client’s desire as a springboard Meera ensures she gives the homeowner more than their vision.

"Meera works with the homeowners to translate their vision into a reality that they couldn’t have dreamt of themselves. Using the client’s desire as a springboard Meera ensures she gives the homeowner more than their vision.

For instance I have a long hallway that was dark and dingy. The only solution I could think of was to put a window into the wall. Meera on the other hand installed art on the walls and lit them up. A simple and beautiful solution transformed the once drab hallway into a well lit picture gallery that showcased my son’s art. From the worst feature in the house the hallway is now its best.

Many a time she has reined my enthusiasm in to make sure the home looks well put together and a design thread runs through the house. She has excellent taste and a good eye for design. Additionally, her visualization of space and how to plan a space to its best advantage is her key and most useful skill. It is a gift that not every designer has. Her easy manner makes her my designer of choice to work with. It is a pleasure to work with a designer who is generous with her time, and very responsive to requests made on her schedule. I will always pick Meera to work with me."

"Meera is a pleasure to work with and really understands how to make a house feel like a home. When we bought our house it felt large and impersonal; with high ceilings, tile floors and dark wood. Meera helped us transform our kitchen/family room area from a cold space to a warm inviting room that the whole family uses. No detail was overlooked in the planning and transformation; from the built in desk to the hand carved fireplace. She takes a lot of care to plan the room so that everything fits and looks great together.

Once we were done with the kitchen, we moved on to decorating our formal living and dining room. I know what I like, but feel overwhelmed by the selection. Meera found beautiful furniture for both rooms, while keeping our budget in mind. Each piece was chosen with care and selected for comfort, quality and to stay true to the other furnishing in the house. The result are three beautiful rooms that work well together.

We get so many compliments on our home. I can't recommend Meera highly enough and look forward to working with her on other projects. I feel that investing in her design services is well worth it, because I haven't made costly mistakes and the results are amazing."
