As new home buyers we were unsure of how to design our first home. We wanted it to match our personalities while also portray a place we could come to after work and relax. Heather helped make the process easy with multiple options and ideas which matched our style while also using contemporary pieces. She was easily reachable and was even available to go shopping with. We love our new home and appreciate all the help!

Heather  offers amazing solutions that can solve every room. Her eye for design and decorating is perfect. Heather’s personal touch allowed us the freedom to be free from the many stressful design and color choices. With our busy schedule this made it so easy for us. She was hands on with the sub-contractors and her knowledge with the possibilities are unlimited when it comes to design. We are excited about how warm and cozy our family room feels. As with any project we realize that services don’t cost they pay dividends, especially when its an area that you are design, style and color challenged.

When we moved to our new home in Ashburn I felt overwhelmed with decisions with decorating and design. After talking with a friend they referred me to Heather. She made the process easy and took control because I had other projects with work going on and was not able to dedicate the time. It’s all about experience and expertise when it comes to picking a style that works for a lifetime. Thanks to Heather, she worked for us to get the right look that made our master bedroom and family room transform from drab to dramatic at a cost effective price. We love the furniture, flooring and overall look. The design services went perfect.

Heather has been so wonderful to work with. Not only does she have the eye I needed, she addresses everything like a supportive friend. From shopping trips, to random messaging about colors or designs, she’s mastered the art of designing. I finally have the house I wanted with Heather’s help.

Heather Bates is awesome to work with and we feel our money was well spent and not a penny was wasted: 1) She is well prepared in every meeting and we met her several times at home and at different showrooms.  2) She really listens and understands the requirement and the constraints very well. 3) She is full of design ideas and advice. She completed our project on time and within budget, we admire her work at our residence and have received compliments from our guests.

Heather is very nice, approachable and has a welcome sense of humor. She came into our house ready to understand our wants and needs while keeping an eye on what could be easily repaired to make house run more efficiently. We worked off a project list she was willing to use. While not from Charlotte, she immediately made connections to ensure the design process would move forward. When we were away for a bit over the summer, she helped install (and make returns) the porch furniture, and got pillow inserts I forgot to order, as well as placed orders for upholstering. She also used Houzz and Pinterest to share design boards and ideas – this is great for those of us who need to see a visual or “look and feel” before executing.
