"Ladies, you rocked my world. So much done and out of my hands that I don't need to worry about anymore!"
“Jen and Anne are two super talented people that can really take care of anything you need them to do! They transformed my living room while coming in under budget and getting my "style" better than I did! Besides their unlimited design and organizational skills, I can really attest to their efficient, no-nonsense way they get any job done.
They have so many contacts in the area that before you can say reupholster, they reply with a reassuring, "I've got a guy/gal for that!"
They are so great and easy to work with, I can't wait to start on my next project with them which is making my kids' rooms not look like we just moved in! And it's my house of 7 years!”
“We would highly recommend 1970 Dogwood Street if you are looking for great, easy to implement ideas for your home. They transformed our kitchen from bland to full of life with smart paint, rug and accent choices in a matter of a couple weeks. Anne and Jen are great to work with, and they make decorating fun. No more analysis paralysis with the overwhelming decorating choices for us - we have Anne & Jen!”
The services that Jen and Anne provide are invaluable. The key to their success is their ‘can do’ attitude. They approach each task with excitement and interest and anything they do will be a job well done. Their experience with design and furniture/color selection proved to be a life saver when they helped me decorate our new home. They are a delight to work with. I highly recommend 1970 Dogwood Street!
