Testimonials

CLIENTS LOVE US

“Pam impressed me so much during my association with her in a volunteer capacity that I hired her to work with my firm on a number of design projects. Her ability to focus on delivering the best possible solution as well as her creative approach made her a highly valuable contributor to our success on the projects she was involved with. She has wonderful ability to slice through the superfluous to get to the core of the matter quickly and does it with a smile. She brings extraordinary assets and comes well prepared.”
Suzan Globus, ASID National Past President, Globus Design
“Pam’s interior design and leadership skills are second to none. She is incredibly creative and constantly looking for new ways to stretch herself and inner designer. Her innovative new line of products is just one example of her superior business and design skills.”
Samantha Scott, President Pushing the Envelope
Pam is the best designer I have ever worked with. She has a great eye and is extremely professional and good at communication. I was so excited to see my project completed, I was like a kid at Christmas. She was so patient with us and the result is better than I could have ever imagined!
Elaine Hairston
I loved working with Pam. She has a great eye for design, great ideas and is great fun to work with! I didn’t hire a designer to agree with everything I wanted to do. She had fresh new ideas I hadn’t thought of to make my home much more special. She gave advice on looking at things differently and helped me see what was missing in a room or what pieces would work better in another place. That made all the difference, creating spaces that I truly love!
Joan Burton
Pam was a lot of fun to work with on our renovation project. She is very ‘cool’ and helpful at breaking down what is overwhelming into simple decisions. I have a lot of designer friends, but we chose to work with Pam, a great choice!
Jody P.
When we first hired Pam, our project was very straight forward. I knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted the house to look. I like things simple and straight forward and budget was an issue. As we went through the process, Pam gently guided us to look at alternative options, which she felt would make us happier in the long run and be a wise investment. She always had our best interests in mind and we couldn’t be happier with the results. She proposed great ideas that created a home we love, love, love! We have and will continue to recommend Pam to anyone who is looking to renovate their home.
Gwendolyn & Jerry Messonnier
I renovated my entire unit and the process was pretty involved. Pam helped me sort through the furniture I should keep and what needed to go. I was happy that we were able to keep some pieces that I really liked and update them by refinishing and recovering. I love color, especially the jeweled tones, and Pam was able to incorporate all that while keeping the look polished. We also added some really cool textures on the walls which make each of the spaces look unique. I love the transformation and am so happy with my home!
Rose Ann Faber
We bought an existing home in Pelican Bay and Pam helped us see the potential it had to really fit our lifestyle. She reconfigured our Main Living Area, Kitchen as well as the Master Suite. Her design work was absolutely great in creating the feel that we wanted in our winter residence, open and breezy with plenty of flow and light. We are truly looking forward to enjoying our ‘new’ home!
Ron & Jeanne Ernst
We recently finished a complete renovation of our home. One of the best, if not the best, decisions we made, was hiring Pamela Durkin as a designer. Pam took charge of the project and advocated continuously on our behalf even in areas outside of her responsibilities. Pam caught mistakes before they happened and spent time with contractors insuring they understood what was required. Pam would take our input and generate outstanding and cost effective options. A major misconception about hiring a designer is cost considerations. Pam is not only reasonable, she saved us money in many areas. When friends ask us about the project, we always respond that it was fun, which people find unusual. It was an enjoyable experience and we think that’s the highest compliment we can give Pam.
