Read what our clients are saying…

“Paula and team transformed the mail living areas of our house into a beautiful yet comfortable space that reflects our tastes and fits the way we use our home.  Even though we did not have a clear sense of what we wanted when we started the project, Paula helped us figure out what we liked AND needed with respect to everything from paint color to window treatments and furniture. Not only are Paula’s design instincts incredible, but her ability as a project manager is also impressive.  She found and coordinated multiple contractors ranging from painters and electricians to people who provide AV support and build custom built-ins.  She took care of everything and stayed within the budget keeping us apprised of changes and developments.  Although the project was large, Paula made it un-intimidating and enjoyable.”

Y. Lee - Bethesda

“Paula’s creative eye is unmatched.  As a family with four young children, Paula listened attentively to our design needs and offered design solutions that were fresh and unique but also functional and practical.  Besides her endless ideas and creativity, her personality is easy going, comfortable and fun.  You will not be disappointed with Paula as your guide.”

B Carmichael - Bethesda

“Paula provided design consultation on a 2 BR/2 BA condo remodel in an older building in Bethesda.  She is fun to work with and very knowledgeable.  She assisted with the initial design concept of all surfaces (i.e counters, floors, cabinets, carpets, paint colors).  She then helped in providing quality contract sources for built-ins, wood floor installation and window treatment selection and will eventually help us with our furniture.  Her knowledge and talent helped in making our new home an amazing place. We highly recommend her!”

C. Dempsey - Bethesda

“Paula is fabulous! You will not be disappointed. She is highly organized and gets the job done! She did a great job extracting my thoughts and ideas and creating a space customized to my style.”

Julie C. - Laytonsville

“Paula is amazing! Everything about her is great! You can’t go wrong when using her for your next project.”

Ashley C - Frederick

“Paula is so easy and comfortable to work with. Last year, she helped me re-decorate my family room and we are now in the process of updating my living room.” 

R. Santucci - Burtonsville

“I could not be more pleased with the work and with the entire process, beginning to end, with PT Designs Inc. Before I hired Paula I did a lot of research and never came across a designer that truly listened and could customize my project to my wants/needs as much as Paula.” 

Kristen S - Damascus, MD

“Paula is fantastic!  The value of her service is immeasurable.  She redecorated our previous residence, including our master bedroom, kitchen, basement and living/dining and family rooms.  When we sold our home (which was a mere 19 days on the market, thanks in large part to Paula), I knew I would rely on her expertise, once again, to assist with the design choices in our newly-built home.  Paula listened to our ideas, desires and concerns and translated them into interiors that are beautiful, functional and within the parameters of our budget.”

K.H - Bethesda

Paula is an extremely talented designer who stays up to date on the latest design trends. She has redecorated my family room and children’s bathroom and I am very please with both!” 

J. Dillon - Gaithersburg, MD

“My new husband and I have very different decorating styles. His are traditional; mine are contemporary. We tasked Paula with designing a great room and a dining room. She was able to blend both of our styles to create spaces that we both love!” 

Hocha - Gettysburg, PA

“I found Paula through Houzz and couldn’t be more pleased with the end result.  She is an outstanding designer to work with.  Not only was the room more than I could have imagined once it was completed but her professionalism during the design process was also a pleasant surprise.”

L. Platz - Frederick

“Paula creates designs that are both timeless and elegant.  Over the course of two years, she helped me achieve a fabulous interior on all three levels of my home. Of course, it was her recommendations on colors, textures, shapes and sizing that were most valued.  Each room’s design flows beautifully and gracefully.  Paula and the contractors she hired were always happy to dedicate additional time and effort to ensure customer satisfaction, I am very pleased with my home’s improvements and appreciate the professional guidance.”

P DeMarco - Frederick

“Initially, my husband and I hired Paula for help with our kitchen window treatments.  However, we didn’t stop there.  We have a beautiful palladium window in our family room that was in need of some casual elegance.  The room was nice before, but after Paula’s touches our family room is warm, colorful and very inviting.  The custom drapery looks amazing!  Paula is very personable, knowledgeable and is a great listener also.  Paula understood what we wanted and she delivered!”

J. Ganim - Burtonsville

“PT Designs along with Sanquist & Son Builders designed, built and installed custom built-in cabinets, a window seat and bookshelves for our office, plus added recess lighting and trim work to transform our room from blah to a space that rocks!  Paula and Ken collaborated with us through the entire process making sure we were always on the same page.  Are they perfectionists? We think so because the results were perfect!  We plan to hire PT Designs again for future projects.”

U. Boil - Germantown

“We have hired Paula to do multiple projects for us.  She has updated our living and dining room, we had her come back to decorate an addition and finally our screened in porch.  She gave us excellent ideas, and performed the work exactly as we wanted and on our budget.  She is a very easy person to work with, very accommodating and we have come to consider her as a friend.”

T. Jackson - Damascus

“I consulted Paula for a “face lift” for my living room in conjunction with a major remodeling project.  Paula went well beyond the specific living room redecorating and helped to select colors for rooms in the rest of the house and advise the bathroom contractor as well.  Paula’s color and furnishings selection was fabulous and my living room has been transformed.”

H.F. - Potomac

“Paula was terrific.  She listened to us and never got frustrated if we were indecisive.  She offered multiple solutions to our design issues and since our first project, we have hired her back two more times!”

 

 

L.K - Brookeville

“Our project was a combination of various challenges.  The first was a combination of two households full of furniture converging together.  Second we wanted to solve a number of problems with room usage and function throughout the house.  Remarkably, despite having her work cut out for her, Paula was able to work with all the challenges and come up with a solution that pleased my husbands desire for a modern clean look and my desire for a warm home full of meaningful art and decor.  We could not be happier, and recommend Paula regularly without reservation.  Her design is flawless, she is so good at listening and attending to details too.  We are enjoying our new spaces that fit us so much better than they did before.  I am planning of having Paula decorate my office in the near future.”

KPC - Clarksville

“Paula helped me redo my existing LR and DR. I had a pretty firm idea of what style I liked (preppy, colorful, kid/pet friendly) including a fabric I had fallen in love with and wanted to incorporate but I didn’t have the time or resources to find anything other than what I like to call “Pottery Barn Blah”. Paula totally got me. She pulled a whole room together for me on the first try. She even listened to my husband who was different taste than I do:) and was considerate of his ideas. We still have a few things left to do (due to backorders and errors in shipping the wrong colorwave) but I am in love with where the rooms are now. Once we finish it will be fabulous. I plan to use Paula going forward as we undergo a full house renovation this spring!”

Ashley Siers

“Paula listens and creates. I wanted a romantic feeling bedroom for my husband and I. He’s been ill for a little over a year and upon his full recovery, I wanted us to enjoy our bedroom. We enjoy it so much that we have our coffee together each morning in our newly decorated romantic “get-a-way”. It’s better than ANY up-scale hotel room. Thank you, Paula for a job well done.”

Campbell Jones

“Paula completely furnished my new 2 bedroom condo from start to fiish. Wonderful results! Enery room was tastefully furnished and all of the furniture, rugs, and paintings were perfectly coordinated. Paula has the unique ability to understand your design style and preferences and translate those into a prefectly beautiful result. I would highly recommend Paula to anyone looking for an experienced and creative design professional.”

Ruthanne Neely

“Paula has done a great job updating a very dark, dated, unusual family room and office level of my home. She worked with what I wanted to keep, totally got me and what the rooms needed. She picked the perfect paint color, furniture, fabrics and carpet. The whole level has a cohesive bright nice vibe. I used to think if I hired a decorator I would end up with a space that didn’t reflect me, I could not have been more wrong. If you’re spinning your wheels as I was and wanting to redo your space don’t hesitate give her a call!”
