Chief Operating Officer at AIM Academy says:

"I have had the extreme pleasure of working with Ellen on an interior design project for our school. Ellen is inspired by, and enjoys educating her clients on new materials, new ideas and the latest design trends. She prides herself on advising on the best use of resources to accommodate budget requirements, and was responsible for the purchase of furniture for the entire school.

Due to her diverse background, she has also advised our organization in the areas of strategic planning, marketing, and social media, and is currently involved in guiding our school through the "Green Ribbon School" process. I look forward to working in tandem with Ellen on future projects."

Timothy Jackson, Workplace Consultant, LEED AP at Corporate Interiors says:

"I have recently worked with Ellen on a successful project that required her to display knowledge of business, project management, skills of delegation and a particular strong point for her, design. She displayed dedication to the project and followed through with each task with intensity. I would recommend Ellen to any client that require these traits in a designer for their project."

Jan Gilbert, Owner says:

"I have had the good fortune to work with Ellen on a design project for a retail space on the main line. Ellen is innovative, budget conscious, and extremely efficient. Her knowledge of spatial planning and the latest trends in materials and finishes enabled her to create a unique space tailored to my specific needs. Ellen is truly a delight to work with."

Bobby Nichols at Drexel Hill Nissan says:

"I just wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for the Design component of my Nissan dealership. The attention to detail and relentless pursuit of perfection is obvious from the moment a customer walks through the front door. Nissan Motor Corporation, the customers, and I are in awe of the job you did. If you ever need a recommendation please feel free to have your client call me. Thanks again."

"Ellen took vague ideas for an office "update" to a finish with fantastic results. Ellen worked with the vendors and contractors and made the process easy from start to finish. Her strategic approach to design enabled us to use the space more efficiently, visually enhancing the environment and improving our brand. If you want a sleek creative approach to design, attention to detail, and great energy, then Ellen is right for your interior design needs."

Residential Bedroom: City Living
Wall mural, warm colors, platform bed, reclining lounge chair and ottoman with computer table. All the comforts of home wrapped up in one room.

Commercial Design: Lighthouse Services, Inc.
A commercial office space designed for a start up company. The goal was to create a warm, comfortable environment, incorporating quality and value oriented furnishings. Earth tones including green, camel, and grey were used to define spaces and highlight architectural features. New and pre-owned furniture were used to stay within budget, while not sacrificing form and function. The front entry area was used for collaborative and meeting space, while the office provides for private office and shared work space.

Residential Bedroom: Modern Design
This space, designed for a young woman's bedroom in the city, combines comfort, function with high style. Silver Wall covering encloses that bed while the light reflects, providing a special glow to the room. The platform bed features an X-base, lizard like headboard with distinct nail head detail. Striking chevron patterns of grey, black and white were used for the bedding and repeated on the hi-back, highly decorative chairs. Lucite legs are featured on the desk and dresser (not shown). Tones of emerald and yellow were added for highlight and contrast. The room is fit for a queen!
