Words From Clients


Suzy knew what I liked and saved me time by editing my choices. She worked well with the subcontractors. I trusted her to follow through and choreograph all aspects of my project.

Christa Moyle, Residential Client, Warrenton VA

Thank you for making this all so “easy” for us. We realize we aren’t your only clients but thank you for making us feel like we are.

Nicolle Jones, Residential Client, Warrenton, VA

I highly recommend Suzy Watkins. Over the years, I have presented her with various design challenges which she has graciously met with a charming smile and a can do attitude. She has taken the time to understand my personal style and has consistently worked within my budget to create the look I want in a timely and beautiful manner. I am grateful for her advice and her knowledge, as I know she has saved me from many costly mistakes. I look forward to working with Suzy again and again in the coming years.
