Accolades

“Thank you!” These are two of the most inspiring words to the team at Design Exchange. The respect and appreciation expressed by clients are more valuable than receiving an award within the industry. The highest compliment of all has been the call to participate in clients’ new projects over the years. Our clients and others say it best:

“Well, I have to try and go to sleep now….but it’s so hard because we love, love, love our newly designed place – it is so beautiful!!”
– 
Palm Coast, FL

“Carolin to me shines at everything. Her color matching and her sense of what works together – she’s really fabulous. She understood so well what I wanted, the different patterns and colors. You need a perfect eye to find so many different things that work together.”
– 
Potomac, MD

“I had 31 ladies for a meeting & luncheon last Monday and they all raved about the room! Well, of course!!”
– Virginia Beach, VA

“We set up the lamps and we both agree that they look fabulous. They make a huge difference in the look of the room. Perfect selection. What’s really cool is that they are stunning even when they are off, a rare quality for a table lamp.”
– Great Falls, VA

“Thanks for all your efforts and expertise. The Home is looking great.”

“Everything is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Words cannot describe how magnificent every thing looks! The couch, rug, coffee table, just everything is perfect. Never, ever have I had a delivery be so pleasant. With the floor plan you provided them, they were able to put everything exactly where it should go!”
– Boca Raton, Florida

“We have enjoyed working with you over the years. Everyone loves the new look in the living/dining rooms.”
– Great Falls, VA

“You did a fantastic job! Dan and I both are very pleased with all the window treatments. The sliding panels are perfect in every way. We will not hesitate to refer our friends to your studio.”
– Reston, VA

“This is a perfectly gorgeous restaurant: spacious, with buff and beige aura set off by handsome blond woods and graceful archways.”
– The Washington Post, Mark and Gail Barnett

“Carolin, your ears must have been burning this weekend from all the compliments as we unpacked more boxes and delightedly unwrapped treasures which you had selected for Oakton! Virtually everything works here.”
Sandy Smith, FL

“The Armoire is WONDERFUL!! Looks like it came with the apartment, it “belongs”. And, is VERY commodious. Love the counter stools too (comfy! Cool looking!), and the re-upholstered easy chair and ottoman are amazing looking… “
Washington, DC

“The tables have just been delivered, and they are gorgeous, and what more can I say.”
Fairfax, VA

“One of the classiest Chinese restaurants in the area. The result is beautiful: an immense restaurant, wisely divided into a multilevel city of intimate rooms, cozied here by a divider, expanded there by a mirror, and all done in soft, rosy beige. It is soft aurally; even with a capacity crowd, quiet conversation is generally easy. And it is soft visually, too; warm spotlights over the tables make the food look irresistible and the diner 10 years younger.”
The Washington Post, Phyllis C. Richman

“Just love my new bedroom – and everything else for that matter.”
Williamsburg, VA

“Have used the shower several times now. I like everything. Very pretty and feels great. I’m over the moon about the water pressure!!” 
— Palm Coast, FL client

“(Granite)–the more I cleaned it the more I realized how special it is. Very unusual – you have to study it for a while before you can really appreciate the value of it totally.” 
–Palm Coast, FL client
