"I want to express my deep appreciation to you both for the many efforts you have made on our behalf to achieve success in building our new home. From the moment we met at the job site, Skip, you inspired my confidence in your abilities and relieved my apprehensions over the enormous task at hand. Despite your other commitments you plunged into the project with enthusiasm ever willing to expand your role as needed. Cynthia, has been a constant source of ideas, resources and perspectives.
We both walk around our home and feel totally at ease and delighted with the result. Our vision of a functional, elegant and most importantly welcoming home has been fully realized. Our favorite comment from family, friends and guest is how cozy and warm our rather spacious home feels. As we hoped the children have already come to love living here; their rooms are truly a reflection of their personalities.
Lastly, I want to especially thank your for the fun and friendship we have shared over the past year and a half. I truly enjoyed and looked forward to our many work sessions, treasure hunts and collaborative efforts. You both are genuinely special, caring people with extraordinary talents and abilities. It has been my privilege to be one of your clients."
"Just got back from 10 days in Cincinnati, but wanted to thank you so much for a great TV segment (or two!). I really enjoyed working with you."

"Before closing out our account on the refurnishing of our family and dining rooms, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for your creative and warmly personal service.
Just as was true four years ago, your design work was first rate. In two quick meetings, you pulled together an entire room's worth of carpeting, reupholstering, couch design, a custom built ottoman/coffee table and last, but certainly not least the final design of the tiled fireplace. The work was beautiful coordinated and provided a reasonable price.
Every day we enjoy the family room more. The space looks twice as large with the new carpet, the furniture fabric is bright and cheerful and the couch is so comfortable that we never want to get up. Our guests rave about something similar to their own home. The new slip covers and window treatment in the dining room have made just as big an impression.
Even more important to us than the quality of our work, however, was your absolute reliability in meeting the deadline of our daughter's bat mitzvah. With only eight weeks notice, you pulled together the myriad details of our project (including glitches such as making last minute arrangements to have the couch built to a custom depth) and cheerfully assumed full responsibility for making sure the work was done on time. During a period in which Marsha was stressed and anxious about a thousand and one details, she did not worry once about the furniture, carpeting, or tile; I can pay you not higher compliment than that!
I don't know if you keep a scrapbook of testimonial letters, but if you do please do not hesitate to include this among them. We have already referred you to several of our friends, and will not hesitate to do so again. Many thanks again for all your have done for use."
"We just got the latest issue of Traditional Home Magazine and turned to page 125 and saw you! Congratulations on your design award! The photographs came out beautifully and represented the Bell's home well."
