What our clients and trade partners are saying
Karen is so talented, and we will definitely work with her again
We recommend Karen Ellentuck without reservation. We had a wonderful experience working with her. She developed a bathroom, bedroom and hallway design that melded our need to stay true to the style of our 1930s house alongside our need for more storage and some big extras (like a steam shower!) She seamlessly incorporated into the design a 100-year-old buffet — transforming it into a sink vanity — and a refinished clawfoot tub. Our upstairs is now our little oasis.
We met with her regularly to plan the layout and design and also to choose fixtures, colors and finishes. She was easily reachable for questions from our contractors and provided an in-home consult several times. She came up with solutions fast, which eased any dilemma we might have had otherwise. Karen is so talented, and we will definitely work with her again.
Knowledge, professionalism, and a caring attitude
When looking for someone to help us with the remodel of our 30 year old kitchen and master bath it was not difficult to choose Karen Ellentuck for the job. We had met Karen through a professional group and had been impressed with her expertise and success in the industry making her the obvious right choice. From the moment we started working on the project Karen’s professionalism and attention to detail was appreciated. I have not had the experience of working with an interior designer and was a bit nervous but I was immediately put at ease by Karen and her interest and understanding of what we were looking for in our project. She’s listened and responded to our budget concerns, clearly set out a plan that would work with us and our time line.
I especially appreciate that after Karen’s first visit to our home she tuned in to my personality and things that I love and transferred that into choices she suggested for our remodel. For someone to be able to recognize these small but important things is remarkable.
On a larger scale she helped us make choices that would update our home and knew what choices would be the best for today’s needs and market. The result will be a home that won’t just be perfect for us but also for whom ever lives here in the future. We have just completed the planning stages and my husband a I are thrilled with the design and the plan she has set in place for us. Thank you to Karen taking what seemed an enormous task and making it easy for us!
We would highly recommend Karen Ellentuck to anyone who is looking for someone to guide them through a challenging process with knowledge, professionalism, and a caring attitude. For that we are grateful.
