Hear What Others Have to Say about Delano Designs!
Curious about our work, but not sure if we’d be the right fit for you? Here are a few words from some of our satisfied customers.
Working with Alison made it possible for us to have a green building. We were so busy with so many decisions regarding construction, we didn’t have time to research products. Alison did it for us. When we were ready for the next step, Alison either had the answer or researched it for us as well as knew where to buy it. We are thrilled with our new clinic. One of the most common exclamations is “It FEELS so good” Never a day of toxic smells. We would not have gone green without the help. Yes, green is more expensive, yes, some of the contractors find it amusing or maybe incredulous, but we are so grateful we were encouraged and assisted in the green process. Thank you, Alison!
Alison Kelly of Delano Designs exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her. She spent extra time on my initial consultation and then even more of her time to locate color samples. Afterwards she took the time to write a thorough letter concerning all we had talked about. Alison was quite friendly and was always willing to answer any questions that I had by phone or e-mail. She was also open to any input I had and was environmentally conscious as well.
We were faced with a remodeling emergency after our water filter burst under our kitchen sink. Water soaked along the kitchen floor to the adjacent rooms and through the floor to the rooms below! We had quite a mess.
We didn’t do an entire kitchen remodel, but Alison’s ideas helped update our kitchen and the adjacent rooms to exactly what we needed them to be. She was there for us every step of the way, from great design solutions to protecting us from chemicals. She has a wealth of knowledge at her fingertips, and already knows or she will find the solution to any problem you can throw at her.
Alison loves the process and her enthusiasm is contagious. She inspired me to see what was possible, and was there when I needed an understanding soul when things got tough. In addition, I learned to see other things that I could easily improve around the house after the major work was done. We are thrilled with our kitchen and the other rooms that we updated.
I found Delano Design online and am so glad I did. Alison Kelly was the best thing that happened to my house. She was able to use what I had, add some selected items, including some furniture, light fixtures and rugs and make it so comfortable. She brought in color and continuity and never forgot who we were and how we lived in the house. My husband, who generally doesn’t take much interest in these things, was impressed too. To top it off we went green with fabric, paint, window coverings, and more. I couldn’t be happier!
I have done two major projects with Alison. My first project was a total kitchen remodel. Alison worked very closely with me to go through my entire kitchen and utilize the space in the most useful arrangement.
She was easy to work with, had lots of great ideas and was willing to work with me to fine tune the project to incorporate my ideas, and make them better using her design knowledge and experience.
My second major project most recently was a complete remodel of two small space bathrooms, one was my master bath and the other a 1/2 bath off my living room. We took the small master bath space and made it feel so much bigger without moving any walls or changing the foot print of the room. Alison kept me on track as I picked out materials and reminded me what would work best in the space, while we worked back and forth to create a space that worked for me. Alison kept the theme consistent across the project, working with my cabinet maker to “push” him a bit on the design because it was something he had not done before. In the end both the cabinet maker and I were super pleased with the way the bathroom project turned out… even though my cabinet maker originally was resistant to our idea for the cabinet we had him make.
My main point is that Alison will go the distance to work out the details and make sure they all come together in a unified way to make the final project look fantastic.
