If you have never taken on a project
this large or hired a designer before, deep breath.

Hi, I’m Pam. I know it’s a lot but when you work with someone who has been a designer for 30 years and worked on every renovation imaginable, just know you are in good hands.

Client Testimonials

Check out what other past clients had to say.

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
We are a condominium complex surrounded on three sides by Gulf of Mexico waters. We have 144 owners. Each of these owners has a different interior design style concept. When we rebuilt our (53’ X 36’) Clubroom, we needed to create a décor that would make everyone happy. It was truly a challenge. Pamela Durkin accepted the challenge and “nailed it”!

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.

Katharine Ryan Admiralty Point - Furnishings Committee Chai

“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

“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.”

Elaine Hairston

“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.”

Gwendolyn & Jerry Messonnier
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 a spent time with contractors ensuring 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 that highest compliment we can give Pam.”
Dan & Julie Petrosini

“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.”

Becky Hoover

“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.”

Marci Margolis

“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!”

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

“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!”
