"Chelsea is a most talented designer! Our project was completed about two years ago and it still gives me joy to simply be home. Previously, we had a small bathroom project that took a year to complete and were mostly unsatisfied when it was over. We thought the next time we had a project we would have to hire a designer who could at least draw a picture. Chelsea spent time with my wife and me, asking us questions about our style, which we frankly hadn't given much thought, and had even further difficulty describing. Chelsea pulled it out of us. She narrowed the choices, we made decisions together, and she kept the project moving. Once the materials were ordered, we were without our kitchen for about 6 weeks. (A dream considering how many stories I have heard about projects dragging on, and of couples who had not eaten a meal at home for 6 months.) The father and son general contractors worked every day to meet our Thanksgiving deadline and Chelsea kept on top of the project.
Chelsea has a special talent for spending money where it matters yielding the greatest impact. We ended up painting and getting window dressings for the whole house. And what started out as a kitchen project addressed nearly every room in the house, even if in a subtle way with fresh paint or a light fixture. And, given what we spent and the scope of the project, I still regard the project as a tremendous value. I recommend Chelsea Design to anyone; especially to people wanting to upgrade without throwing everything away and starting over. Chelsea is most excellent at her job."
