More Testimonials From our Lovely Clients:

We hired C&H to design the main living spaces in our new home. They were thoughtful and attentive in listening to our requests, and responded with choices that we are incredibly happy with. We implemented all of their ideas over the course of a few months. We liked them so well we hired them again to revamp our master bathroom.Read More

Helen and Calla are incredible to work with. They did an excellent job taking in what my husband and I wanted, but didn't totally agree on, for our project and bringing it together to our final vision. They are incredibly responsive to feedback and were willing to work with us to make the changes we felt would be best. They were very patient with us during the times we were busy and not overly responsive to their emails. I would work with them again in a heartbeat and have already recommended them to numerous friends and neighbors.Read More

I highly recommend C&H Design. They helped refresh our downstairs with new flooring and paint, light fixtures and some furniture. They were very responsive in all communication, had great ideas that was in line with our style and budget, and are just kind and fun people.Read More

We love C&H! They are a solid team. Calla & Helen care about each project as if it was their own house. We hired them for two different large projects. The first project was our laundry room addition and powder bath, the second project is our kitchen renovation (still going on). From discussing the initial concepts and crafting meticulous drawings to the final installation, their attention to detail is what makes every project a success. In addition to their excellent skill set & design taste, their respect & awareness of what I needed as a client was always a top priority. I'd hire them again in heartbeat. (I wish I had more pictures on hand to share.)Read More
