After weeks of planning, painting, and preparing, the final step in the decorating process arrived – installation day. With great anticipation and excitement, my husband and I left the house in the capable and talented hands of our designer. Several hours later we received the call to return home. When we walked through the front door into the foyer, the vista into our living room and dining room had gone through an unbelievable transformation. At any minute we expected the cameras to start rolling for an episode on HGTV as we stood oohing and ahing in the doorway. Everything was perfect. The new furniture and accessories were tastefully mixed with our family heirlooms and other treasured pieces creating an eclectic yet modern look. Rearranging the room, decluttering, and using smaller scale furniture made the room airy and spacious. As we perused the room, the attention to detail was amazing. The curio cabinet shelves were filled with tastefully arranged vignettes that showcased our collectible items. Framing the whole room were the beautiful window treatments. Adjacent to the living room, the dining room’s new furniture arrangement and rouge color complimented my grandmother’s antique mahogany dining room set. It was a moment in time that we will always remember.
The rooms have been finished now for a few months, and when we walk into our newly decorated rooms, we still find ourselves having to take a second glance just to make sure that this is really our home. Thank you Wendy for making the design process exciting and fun. You always listened to our ideas, and best of all, you incorporated many of the things that we already had and loved into the design. Our new decor is beautiful and classic yet comfortable enough for every day living. This is an investment that we will enjoy for years to come.

Like I’m sure many people are, we were reluctant to hire an interior designer – assuming it would be too expensive and that he/she would walk into our home saying things like “Oh my, why did you choose THAT?” So needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised when both of our assumptions were wrong.
The costs were very reasonable and when we considered how many random things we bought in the past because we didn’t have a plan, we probably would have saved money had we chosen to go with Wendy Carr when we first moved in. The other thing that put our minds to ease was the first question Wendy asked when she sat down with us in our home – “Tell me what you really like about your home.”
Now that our house is done – and beautiful – two things stand out from the process. One, I was impressed with Wendy’s attention to detail. The other was her ability to take our existing things (pictures, knickknacks, furniture) and rearrange them in a way that looked so much better than we had before. She didn’t say “this has to go” to our existing things. It was more like “This is really nice, what if we put it here?”
We love the way our home looks and have Wendy Carr Interior Designs to thank for that. We recommend her without any reservation.

“As we sit in our beautiful “new” home, we feel calm and comfortable with the changes. We haven’t changed a thing you did because it all looks so natural and in place! Thank you for using your God-given talents… you are a blessing to us. May God continue to bless you as you live for Him each day.” –B.D.
“Thanks so much Wendy! The living room/dining room window treatments are perfect. So nice to have it all together. The pillows are so special, with all the custom touches. I absolutely love the dining room now. The arrangement on the table is just what I was imagining. Something unusual, but elegant. Not your typical floral arrangement!… My oldest son, Andreas asked if I was trying out for some decorating show! They noticed the wonderful changes.” –K.S.
