I loved working with my hands as a kid. Sewing with my grandmother and mother, trying my hand at refinishing an old oak night stand from my grandfather who was a true picker at heart. Loving anything that says bead-board, farmer’s sink, porcelain top kitchen tables and climbing fruit trees in my grandfather’s garden.

I don’t follow the trends in my lifestyle. Knowing what they are and implementing them in my job is what I do. Living in your interior, knowing your style and being surrounded with beautiful memorabilia of old and new will make for a happier you.

Our project was to replace our kitchen countertops, tile floor to co-ordinate with our current cabinets and a half bath with new tile floor, vanity, lights and backsplash. Our time frame was to be completed by the second week in November. Our budget was flexible.
Debbe was outstanding in providing samples that met our needs and more importantly, in contracting with contractors who were timely, professional and courteous. Our project ran smoothly and Debbe was always in contact with us during the project progress.
Our project was completed ON TIME and looks fabulous! Thanks so much Debbe.

I recently moved into a loft space and hired Debbe Daley through a recommendation of a friend. I had never worked with a designer before and was unsure about the process. Upon meeting Debbe I immediately felt comfortable and she did a great job of helping me identify style ideas that I loved. Debbe is mindful of budgets and timelines and is always responsive. She is the consummate professional with unlimited resources and has been a pleasure to work with. I have ongoing projects with her and have enjoyed every step of the process!
