We purchased our 2006 Street of Dreams home in 2010.
For the past few years, we have known a refresh of the interior was needed, but were really concerned about losing the “soul” of this magnificent house. Doug and I didn’t feel confident that we could trust a designer to understand the uniqueness of this house nor our particular style. We did not want a cookie cutter paint-it-white “Houzz” approach that seems to be favored by so many of the designers.
Candace White was recommended to us by the owner of the hardwood floor company after we decided that we couldn’t JUST select a hardwood without considering the other elements that would be affected. It was serendipity! Her husband was actually the architect of this home! We were a perfect match!
We are now in about month 3 of our process and it has been a delight to work with her! Right off the bat she drilled down on some of the quotes we had received (prior to her coming aboard) and spotted overcharges to the tune of about $14,000. Plus she is so well respected and genuinely loved by the contractors that she gets things done! The contractors she has recommended have been top quality!
Doug and I just could not have done this without her. No joke. Our home is being transformed and refreshed without losing our style and the house’s integrity in the process.
