    In response to Thomas Lennig's request

    Can anyone recommend a great Interior Decorator near San Francisco, CA?

    I can not recommend Toni DeWaal highly enough. She has done two houses for us and I would never attempt a real estate project without her. She's smart, efficient, organized, possessed of exceptional taste, and just plain fun to work with. She's also crazy detail-oriented, exactly what I want in an interior designer.

    We originally hired Toni to do some simple color coordination during a massive house remodel we undertook about 10 years ago. We wanted to prevent the "six rooms from six different houses" debacle but it quickly became apparent that we needed her for much, much more than that. Toni's work exceeded our expectations in every way. We regularly got comments on how beautiful the house is and that's all Toni.

    For our second house, we got Toni involved during the architecture phase and I can honestly say that she was the difference between building a good house and building a GREAT house. The end result is spectacular and we could not have done it without her.

    It's safe to say that she will be the first vendor involved in ANY future real estate projects we undertake. Her encyclopedic knowledge of design is second only to her amazing good taste and she was diligent in understanding what we liked and how we wanted to use the houses. She's organized, efficient, creative, responsive, and just all-around fun to work with. Both of the houses are Craftsman, so you can imagine my surprise when she showed us photos from her portfolio that were equally beautiful yet done in wildly different styles.

    I cannot recommend Toni highly enough - she is one of the true masters in the art of interior design and we are always looking for excuses for another opportunity to work with her

    I've had the pleasure of collaborating and working with Studio D for several years. Toni's personable character, passion for design as well as her thoroughness is reviewing all aspects of a project before it is executed make her company a good company to work for and with. Nothing was really left unchecked with the last projects I've worked with Studio D on. Toni's good project management skills as well as her good client relations helped make my job a lot easier and in the end, allowed me the creative freedom to concentrate on the creative aspect of my job, working with a partner that helps me create great work is really priceless.

    Toni did a comprehensive redesign on our remodel. She designed the kitchen, bathrooms and the general layout of the house. She worked very closely with the architect and the builder. She provided a complete description of the project and was very respectful of our wishes. After almost 7 years we are still enjoying her design and choices. She did a second project for us more recently for which she won an award.

    My husband and I so enjoyed working with Toni on our Craftsman style bathroom remodel. Because she asked the right questions about our design likes and how we used our space we now have a bathroom that is not only gorgeous but is so much more functional than we could have imagined. Because of her attention to detail and ability to communicate with the contractor any potential bumps were avoided, making for a smooth completion of the project. We look forward to utilizing Toni’s talent for any future home remodeling projects, big or small.
