I do not have enough good words to describe working with Dana. She was absolutely amazing. I was working with a blank slate and for most of the duration of our time working together, I wasn't even moved into my home yet. She was very patient with me, even though I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted to do with the space. She made this all so easy. She never once got frustrated with me, regardless that we worked on design plans a few times :). She helped me get a warm feeling from my home, keeping it enjoyable for the adults, but also making it inviting for our kids (2 & 4). We are still working on putting the plans in motion, but have done a lot. I like the fact, that even after my project is "complete" Dana is still here to answer all of my questions. She is very responsive, friendly, knowledgeable, and has a knack for design. I can't imagine trying to work via the internet to get a feel for someone's space and doing such a great job! - Rachel in Bethlehem, PA
Room:Multiple Style:Transitional 3/28/18 “Working with Dana was a breeze- for someone who had no clue what she wanted and could give little direction, Dana somehow read my mind when even I couldn't! We are so excited to start putting our room together... and very quickly have Dana start on the rest of our house (the idea of doing this alone now seems crazy!). - Jessica in Winter Garden, FL
Room:Living Room Style:Transitional 11/8/17 “Dana was really great and very attentive. She listened to my ideas and suggestions and really helped me figure out what would be best for the room and my style. I'm really glad she pushed me towards the mirrored sideboard! - Amanda in Havertown, PA
Room:Dining Room Style:Transitional 8/22/17 “Dana was very responsive to all of my comments and questions. She offered multiple options that fit my design aesthetic and color palette beautifully. - Sheila in Northampton, MA
Room:Multiple Style:Transitional 5/28/17 “Dana Dyson is an excellent designer and provides first rate customer service. She really listened to my comments and incorporated them into the design. When I didn't know what I wanted and changed my mind, she redesigned until I saw what I wanted. I learned so much from watching her put a room together based on my reactions to her ideas. I feel like I gained a room and an education! - Katrina in San Francisco, CA
Room:Master Bedroom Style:Transitional 3/28/17 “Really loved working with Dana. She was so responsive and quick to return emails. She was flexible, open to ideas and had great thoughts. Thank you so much for helping us make the bedroom a great room! - Cynthia in Zionsville, PA
Room:Master Bedroom Style:Transitional 3/3/17 “I wanted to live in the room for a bit before I left feedback for Dana. And I have to say we are just as much in love with the room assembled as we were with the final style board. Dana nailed our style and how we wanted the room to look and feel. She took her initial style board, which was a beautiful start, and took it up to an "11" before she was done with our final design board. I also want to say how enjoyable it was to work with Dana, she is extremely flexible and responsive during the design phase. Her suggestions were spot on, and if we weren't sure on something, she worked with us until we found just the right piece, making sure we stayed within our budget. Dana also consistently went over and above to find unique items for challenging hard to fit areas of this living room. . Dana, my husband and I want to thank you for all your hard work,skills and talent that took our "Uncooperative" living room to being the heart of our home. - Beth in San Antonio
