this large or hired a designer before, deep breath.
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!”
From the moment Pam saw the structure (which was still under construction) and heard my committee’s comments as to colors, usage and décor expectations, she totally understood our needs. She took our blank canvas and envisioned a beautiful plan. She created a room with a fresh, inviting look that met our every hope. She incorporated high quality furnishings with various fabric textures in a soft water colored theme. It is perfect. To top it off, Pam was a joy to work with. To this day, months later, our residents go out of their way to let my committee know how delighted they are with our Clubroom.
“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.”
“It has been a great pleasure to work with Pam Durkin over a series of design projects. From concept to execution, Pam brings strong listening skills, a fresh sense of today’s design trends, a focus on quality and, most importantly, a timely and beautiful outcome. I especially appreciated Pam’s efficient use of time—both hers and mine and her keeping in touch throughout the life of the work. Her staff is excellent in this regard, as are those who carry out the work. All our work together has been on time and on budget. I am delighted that Pam is there to make our Florida home a special place to be.”
“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, Palm 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.”
“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 must 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.”
“I so enjoyed working with Pam Durkin. It is unique when a designer possesses the ability to establish a vision for a home that both aligns itself with the homeowner’s desire and also the designer’s vision. Pam was able to do that in my home. She took a white shell to an environment that is warm and comfortable. I wanted a subdued elegance that would not overwhelm, and she gave me that with color, charm and a budget that met my expectations. One element that is very important to me is good communication, Pam always returned my emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. She is an excellent communicator. I would encourage anyone who wants to meet a professional that is familiar with today’s design world to interview Pam and prepare to be impressed.”
“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 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!”
“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!”
“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!”

If you are good to provide all that info,
someone will be back in touch to set up a quick call. On that call, we simply talk
about your project and determine if we are a good fit. I believe rapport is so
incredibly important in the designer/client relationship. If I do not think we will
be a good fit, I will politely decline the opportunity, no hard feelings!
