"Working with Charlene was a breath of fresh air! Charlene is truly a professional, very creative, and her work ethic was beyond impressive. We have worked with other designers in the past, and no one comes close to Charlene. She is very organized, reliable, and extremely responsive! Whether you send her a text, email, or leave a message, Charlene ALWAYS gets back to you. And this made our experience so pleasant (unlike our other designers in the past, which we felt like we had to constantly be on top of and send multiple messages before getting a response!). Not only is Charlene super easy to work with, she also is SO good at what she does! She really has an eye for design. We had Charlene design our master bedroom, kids room, and play space, and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. When we initially met with Charlene, we told her our vision for each room. She was so great at listening to what we wanted and adding in her thoughts and perspective. She was great about helping us see the big picture and offered so many creative solutions for some areas that were hard to design. She made our vision become a reality and added so many more touches that truly complete the look we always wanted. We cannot say enough good things about Charlene and definitely plan to use her again for future projects!"  - Allison D.

"Hi Charlene,

I just want you to know how much I appreciate you.  I don't know where to begin.  You are great to work with, hard working non-stop, very professional and you always listen to what I want.  Super understanding but really good at helping me figure out what I want and then from there it's like magic.  I'm known to change my mind and you never make me feel bad about it.  

We've worked together on a couple projects thus far, one being not so big and just now finished a bigger one and I can't stop bragging about your work and you.  I'm so blessed to have found you and I can't wait to move on to the many other projects I have in mind.  You love what you do and you're great at it but most importantly you are a beautiful person inside and out.  

I think we have become great friends and will probably end up best friends (my family teases me that Charlene is your BFF).  I love working with you and really can't wait to start on kitchen, family room and the list goes on.......  I almost forgot I really appreciate how you always try to help me stay on budget and save.  I'm terrible with budgets and you do a great job at reminding me very kindly to stay on budget. That to me is a friend and not just a designer.

I'm sure we will stay in touch and I look forward to getting together again. Take Care and thank you!!!!

Yours truly,

Michelle A"

"When my husband and I decided to redesign our home, we were in the dark about what is involved in the interior design process.  Working with Charlene, of Dress My Address, far exceeded any expectation we had about working with an interior designer.  From the initial consultation to the end of the project, there is open communication regarding your needs, vision and most importantly your budget.  Throughout the entire design project, Charlene utilized a plethora of resources to ensure we were getting the best possible product-whether it be a couch to a picture frame, for the best possible dollar.  Her extreme attention to detail made us comfortable knowing we were getting quality pieces that would last us for years to come.  Seeing the transformation of our home was an amazing experience.  The feeling of comfort and happiness from coming home to a beautifully, well-designed sanctuary is absolutely priceless!   My husband and I would like to thank Charlene and her staff at Dress My Address for her passion for what she does, it has definitely paid off on our end!"  -Christina P.

"Thank you again for the amazing job you did in our living and dining rooms! You made the whole process so easy for us and now we get to live in our dream home. It's still a (wonderful!) shock to see the transformation when I go downstairs every morning. I can't believe this is my house!
Thank you for truly listening to me and my ideas and for being so patient with my opinion changes and my need to talk through every tiny detail (to put it mildly haha). I actually felt like I was talking to a friend. Thank you also for respecting our budget - we've heard a lot of nightmare stories about other interior designers who kept pushing their clients to spend more and I feel like your work was so much better and yet at the same time adhered to the budget. I'm so thankful that we found you!" -Jennifer Y.

"I am writing this letter to those who are considering using Charlene's services for your interior needs .

She runs her business based on integrity , honesty & punctuality . Also she has a great eye for what she does which takes the stress out of your decision making . I would highly recommend her services also simply because she is a really great person & you won't be disappointed!"   -Jim, Van Go Blinds

"My dad moved into his newly remodeled house with all his old and outdated furniture last year.  I am a realtor myself and wanted to help my dad buy new furniture that fits his house but I didn’t have the time to do it, so we hired Charlene to help us.  She stopped by to give my dad a consultation, took some measurements and came back with a sketch and design board for his house.  At the end of the consultation, I already knew she would be able to help my dad to re-design his house because she really took the time to understand his needs.  At the beginning, my dad had no idea what type of furniture and decorations he wants and Charlene patiently took the time to give him several options to recommend some furniture that fits his house and budget.  Charlene took great care in listening to his needs, and making adjustments to the layout of the house.  Then, she was able to find the perfect pieces for my dad and the best part was that it was all within his budget.  I am so glad we hired her as she is very easy to work with, creative, reliable, efficient and really looks out for your best interest.  Now my dad can go home after work and relax at his comfortable home!  We have already received so many compliments from family and friends.  Thank you Charlene and I will be definitely be referring more clients to you!" - Sheiline L.

"I just wanted to thank you again for staging our home. Now that the sale of the house is behind us, I can be honest and admit that when the realtor gave us your card and recommended that we stage the house, I was rather skeptical. I was proud of our house and wanted prospective buyers to feel like it was a family home, and I was afraid that staging would make it look artificial. I could not have been more wrong. When you were done, it still felt like our home, just a better version of it! You were able to see and correct flaws that I overlooked and yet you kept the essence of the house. I actually hope to work with you again on decorating our new home! You have a great aesthetic acumen and I know you would do a wonderful job in creating a warm environment for our family to grow in. Thank you again!"  -Alice Y.

"After purchasing our second home that needed a complete renovation, the first person I wanted to call was Charlene!  We worked with Charlene on our first home where she designed and completely transformed our living space.  The opportunity to work with her again on a much larger project brought excitement to what was a huge and overwhelming ordeal.   Again, we were amazed by her dedication, resourcefulness, and design ideas.  She worked hand in hand with our contractors to ensure that timelines were being met and facilitated in every single aspect of the project.  Hiccups and setbacks come up in any renovation project, but Charlene was able to maneuver through the hurdles and keep us right on track.  Words cannot express how invaluable Charlene’s presence and expertise was in creating our forever home.
  Charlene has been such a huge blessing to our family.  Knowing and working with her has had such a positive impact in so many aspects of our lives!  Thank you, Charlene!" -Alfred P.
