“After a decade of trying to furnish an awkward living and dining room we contacted Carrie. We couldn’t be more pleased with the result. Carrie was an absolute delight to work with – she really listened and quickly understood what we wanted. She worked wonders using pieces we already owned and suggested purchasing just a few additional ones. We would hire Carrie again without hesitation.”
” Carrie was a pleasure to work with! She gave me so many great suggestions for updating my entire home. Carrie took the time to evaluate each room I was concerned with and provided solutions, or options. She redesigned our family room to improve the space and functionality and we couldn’t be happier. She has experience, a good eye for detail, and a gentle, yet direct approach.”
“Carrie Yoshida is excellent — very practical and down-to-earth. We worked together to move furniture around and she made great recommendations that worked well and were fairly inexpensive. I loved her sense of color and organization and her willingness to roll up her sleeves and actually hang photos! Have recommended her to several of my friends already.”
“Carrie is wonderful and so kind! She took the time to understand what I was hoping to accomplish and looked for ways to keep costs down even before I thought to suggest it. Even though my project is our living room, she helped me make plans to find some color themes and ideas for connecting all our spaces, including the foyer, hallway, dining room and family room. I learned a ton from her in a short period of time and will definitely hire her again as we move forward!”
“I contacted Visual Harmony Interiors to help me with decorating my house. I met with Carrie several times and she helped me with placement of my furniture, wall hangings and she even helped me attach some of my wall hangings onto decorative displays. She provided me with names of places to purchase furniture and was nice to even accompany me with my selection of furniture and decor. She is great with fabrics, colors, has beautiful taste and her knowledge of resources was tremendous. She provided me with creative new ideas on decorating. Carrie’s invaluable service surpassed her visits to my house as she continued to send me emails of mirrors that she thought would fit appropriately in my rooms. I cannot say enough about how wonderful Carrie is and will continue to highly recommend her to others. Working with her was both enjoyable and fun. Not only is she a great decorator, but she is a kind and spiritual person who will strive hard to provide your surroundings with visual harmony!”
“I interviewed two other interior designers before selecting Carrie. My budget to redecorate four rooms was $20,000. Two rooms required all new furniture. Carrie helped me to get great looking area rugs at local stores for reasonable prices. She researched on-line for beautiful lamps and furniture. She suggested that my office furniture be reupholstered and selected beautiful fabrics for this purpose. I love the warm attractive paint colors she suggested for my bedroom, living room, office and dining room (she has a great eye for color). Carrie also helped me select window treatments that were complimentary in color and design to the redecorated rooms. She even purchased several plants to provide that extra touch of color. Although it was not in my original budget, I decided to follow Carrie’s suggestion to reface my ugly brick fireplace. This decision made a very big difference in the ambiance of my living room..
Everyday it is a pleasure for me to walk through the redesigned rooms in my home. They embody both the warmth and the “pop” of color that I requested. I marvel at how well the choice of furniture, paint colors, plants and window treatments combine to provide interest, visual attractiveness and continuity within and between rooms. The rooms that satisfy me most are those which received a total redesign – my office and the living room. If money permitted I would have Carrie redesign all the rooms in my house. On my own I would never have selected the style and design elements that Carrie suggested. But once these suggestions were made I soon learned to appreciate the aesthetics of her ideas/choices and to value her expertise. Carrie met all of my expectations: 1) she worked within my limited budget, 2) greatly reduced the time and stress involved in the redesign process, 3) provided an attractive outcome , 4) was a good listener and collaborator with me, and 5) provided good resources for services and purchases. What I did not expect was to have fun participating in a process I’ve long been dreading. The latter was due to Carrie’s upbeat manner and patience.”
