There is nothing better than word of mouth. Here is what a few clients are saying about our services.
"When my husband and I decided to build a new house, we chose Angela to be our designer. Angela was an equal part of the team along with the architect and builder and was involved in every aspect of the project. Angela was key in the designing of all areas of the house inside and out. No aspect of the house design was too large or too small, and Angela always respected our budget — from roofing, siding, and exterior stone decisions, to every aspect of designing and decorating the interior of the house. Her knowledge of structural, electrical and plumbing work made choosing the right products for the kitchen, bathrooms, light fixtures, and appliances efficient and with beautiful results. Her knowledge of scale, color and up-to-date trends and products was invaluable in tackling a project that involves so many choices. Building a house can be overwhelming at times, but working with Angela made it not only manageable but a fun and exciting experience -— with beautiful results that my husband and I, and our family love. Angela listened to our ideas and then elevated our vision with an aesthetic eye and a sense of style that is both modern and timeless and very importantly — comfortable. Angela's years of experience, her collaborative approach, and her artistic talent allowed us to make decisions without anxiety and without the fear of making costly, time consuming mistakes."

"Angela Graefenhain is a consummate professional with tons of design talent and a superb eye for color and balance. She has a knack for working with clients who have opposing views on how a room should look; i.e., she has brought my husband and me to consensus on a number of issues. What a blessing! The first project was our guest room in 2013 (badly needed). My husband and Angela surprised me with a whole new look when I returned from an extended trip, and it is beautiful! The second project was our master bedroom in late 2014. To this day, I peek in at it several times a day — it just makes me happy. Now we're re-doing the "man cave" and again, Angela has created a beautiful space that blends with the rest of the house while still providing the elements that my husband likes (big screen TV, bar, display shelves). Angela is fun to work with, responsive, meticulous, and dependable. I highly recommend her for your next home project/remodel."

"When my husband and I decided to build a new home, we wanted a professional to help us make selections and pull the project together. After interviewing several designers we chose Angela/Graefenhain Designs. Angela was WONDERFUL! I was initially afraid of losing control of the process and that the home would not reflect our personalities, but Angela took the time to get to know us and was committed to an outcome that was uniquely "us". She did everything...Brick/siding/stone selections, lighting, tile, flooring, hardware, bath fixtures, color schemes, to kitchen layouts and advising on vanities and moldings/trim work. Not only is Angela professional and accessible, she is humble and FUN to work with - no design diva here! I can not recommend her enough, and as a successful Realtor in Naperville, I have already referred her to many clients as well. I am happy to be a reference to anyone considering using Angela on their home project."
