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.
Dan & Julie Petrosini
I am writing to let you know how proud and thrilled we are with our Grand Salon and Guest Suites projects. Pam went above and beyond to accommodate the needs for our residents and the board. We always felt as though we were a top priority and that her response time to our needs was very prompt. We get many compliments as guests walk into our beautiful building and see Pam’s design in our Grand Salon. It truly has captured the feel of our style while updating the look. Our Guest Suites are beautiful, tranquil and serene. We look forward to the season for all of our family and friends to enjoy these beautiful spaces. Special thanks to Pam for all of her time and expertise in helping to update our common spaces with such a beautiful result!
VaNita Laurito, Decorating Committee Chair, La Scala Condominium
“As a working professional with various interests, family and friends as priorities, I wanted to be certain that my project was going to achieve my desired ‘2018 and beyond’ remodel. I have to admit that I am a bit of a perfectionist and although I am budget minded, I truly valued the expertise and professionalism that Pam provided throughout the project. After an informal get acquainted meeting and telephone calls, I was amazed with her product selections at our first meeting. She was just dead on and I was all in! For me, the scope of my project welcomed Pam’s vision and savvy. Pam is the ultimate listener, very intuitive, big-picture minded and driven. She was the ultimate guardian and kept my expectations top of mind throughout the project. She was relentless and intervened with subs as needed to assure that all the details were met. I have and will continue to recommend her. I love my home and have gained Pam as a friend.”
Becky Hoover

  • Less really can be more and even have a greater impact!
.
.

If I were to describe this room to you without the picture, I would say there are 3 pictures, 4 chairs and a table. You would think to yourself, "That doesn't sound like a lot!" But knowing that along with seeing the photo, do you still feel that way?
.
.
.
When designing your home or your business, focusing on the big ideas make all the difference. We like to 'get in the weeds' and get confused and distracted and overwhelmed by all the little details that could be. .
.
.
I am suggesting that you focus on the big elements, those that make a bold statement in your home or that really propel your business forward. When you do that, all the other elements become a supporting cast to the "show stoppers" and they end up having a much greater impact!

  • There are two things that are precious: time and family. If you do not have a handle on your work, spending time on only the things that garner the most profit, you could be sacrificing your time with your family. .
.
.
They grow up fast and we won't be cool forever (just ask my teenagers, apparently we are super embarrassing). Family vacations are quickly going to be a thing of the past once they fly the nest. .
.
.
Guard your time wisely, (1) hour of planning can save up to (10) hours of work. I'd say that is a good use of time!

If you think it's time for a change and want to know what I use in my business to save me hours of time, send me a DM. I will send you my Time Blocking Secrets in no time flat! .

  • Finding your voice on what you want to share with the world can be daunting. ALL the doubts and fears come up to say, "Hi!" like:
.
+ Why would anyone care what I think?
+ I have nothing to say
+ My life is pretty ordinary
+ I don't really have anything of value to share
.
.
.
Well, I am here to say, it's time to take out the 'Head trash!'. If it is important to you, it will be important to others. And, finding your voice takes TIME and PRACTICE.
.
.
.
By making the effort in your Newsletters (Yup! Snail mail is NOT dead!), Social Media Posts, and on-going conversations with your clients and audience, you will start to feel more and more comfortable sharing what is important to you. Don't forget to tie it all back to what's important to your client, too.
.

I have a friend who is in the PR world now but she used to be a professional dancer. I did not know any of this information until she casually mentioned it in a conversation. I felt like she had been hiding a gift that could really help her clients. To me, being a performer is exactly the skills needed when being interviewed by the media. Her experience makes her totally memorable and unique in her approach to help clients. .
.
.
I am discovering new things every day, but it is only by doing that I see it. Try, assess and then refine. Little by little it all starts to take shape. If you are ready to find your voice and need some help, take my 7 Day Design Business challenge (link in bio) to get started!
