Carmen’s natural flare for design and her ability to see what the space needs was a great help when it came to re-designing Air Hair Studio.
She was very easy to work with and had great ideas. She was organised and followed up with photos and links so I could look at different options.
Her amazing taste for the unique and the ability to add things that I wouldn’t have thought of really helped tie everything together.
If it’s a great second opinion or a totally fresh perspective I highly recommend Carmen.
- Easy to work with
- Delivers on what she promises
- Does work in a timely manner
I know we are on the right track with Carmen as she understands our brief and has created something unique to respond to the needs of the club. We will be using her again for our upcoming major renovation and I would be happy to refer her to others.
- Knows her craft and skills are evident
Carmen offers something unique in terms of her style and design in a service that is a more economical option than hiring an architectural firm. Her designs will really enhance the look and feel of our club, keep us current and increase revenue as a result.
I would definitely use her again for our projects.
We asked Carmen to come and give us some ideas on how we could better use our favourite area of our house that was being underutilised before we proceeded with a kitchen renovation. Carmen came in with amazing ideas that flowed and created a vision for us that not one of the previous three kitchen designers had seen or thought of. She sketched 2 possible ideas free-hand which gave us the confidence to pick our current design. We were so impressed we asked Carmen to draw formal plans we could take with us to get consistent quotes. Not only do we now have those but also a folio consolidating our ideas for finishes and checklists on how to proceed. We would highly recommend (and have) Carmen’s services to anyone who needs someone with creative solutions to any renovation. Thanks, Carmen.
Carmen has the perfect combination of creativity, practical advice and flair. Carmen recently helped us design wardrobes for our 1930s home – her suggestions and designs were fantastic she really helped us maximise the use of space and avoid making decisions that restricted bedroom layout options. I highly recommend Carmen for design and decorating advice large or small.
Carmen is a true professional. We had plans drawn for our renovation. Thankfully Carmen gave us a second opinion. Not only did the plans suit our families lifestyle better the costs were reduced significantly due to Carmen’s building and design knowledge.
Thank you for the time and amazing transformation of my home. I especially love the way you created a guest bedroom and made the space much more welcoming. Just by moving our furniture around in the bedroom, you managed to make such a huge difference. I am sure it will make a big difference in how quickly we sell. I appreciate all you did.
After years of procrastination, I contacted Carmen to help us with our main bathroom renovation. She listened to our ideas and helped formulate with us a beautiful plan to go forward that suited both our wants and style of home. Not only was Carmen so generous with her time, and she also offered us a list of trades and suppliers to make our vision a reality. I would recommend her professional services to all my family and friends.
Carmen really had a vision for what our house could be and made us believe that the changes would be for the better. I give credit where credit is due because you showed us how we could transform our home into something way greater than we could ever have dreamed of.”
We were floundering and idea-less with our renovation until Carmen lit the spark with her suggestions for how to progress. She nurtured rather than directed us throughout and lead us along the journey. A big thank you Carmen for all your help.
You totally changed our mind on our original thoughts regarding how we wanted to renovate our home. You knew how we could lay out our new spaces and add a level to give us an exciting new home. You really had a vision and made us believe that the changes would be for the better. You certainly helped us to transform our home into something way greater than we could ever have dreamed of.”
Our family has worked closely with Carmen on several projects at our home. We have always found Carmen to be creative, practical, honest and hardworking. She combines an ability to envision the big picture with the skills she has to bring it all together and we have been delighted with the results.
Carmen was great from the start. When she came we knew exactly what to expect. She provided me with wonderful hints and tips that were inexpensive and ideas on ways to incorporate our existing furniture. Carmen was professional, friendly, extremely helpful and affordable. We jump at the opportunity to tell our friends and family about Carmen and recommend her to anyone who wants assistance with renovating or styling. Will be calling Carmen again before we spend a dollar on anything.
Honestly I don’t know what we would have done without you to help us the design of our garden. You changed our mind on what we were going to do and it is so much more practical and beautiful than anything we had imagined. What you suggested made our eyes light up. Thanks so much for your help and advice throughout the project.
I have had the pleasure of working with Carmen, and I have been in awe of all that she is achieving with her design business. Carmen’s enthusiasm for what she does is contagious, and I am always confident in the guidance and expertise she offers me, her attention to detail, her respect from her clients and her skilled awareness in getting the best possible outcome for everyone she works with. I am lucky to have met someone as lovely and professional as Carmen and look forward to using her on my next project.
I am not surprised you received an award and I am sure you will receive many, many more. I do not walk into my space now without gazing around and know how much I love what you created! Seriously blows me away!
