"We have worked with Ellen and her team on multiple projects in our suburban home in MA, our rustic cabin in NH, both on remodeling projects and brand new construction. Ellen has done an outstanding job of understanding our unique decorating style and our way of life. She helped us design living spaces which incorporated some of our existing furniture and artwork and augmented it with new unique pieces. The overall result has been spaces which are visually appealing, livable, and totally unique. We would highly recommend Ellen and her whole team for any type of interior design and decorating project."

"Ellen was terrific at focusing our planning efforts based on our needs and budget. She offered skilled yet gentle guidance and valuable suggestions around design, materials, colors, and cabinetry. Ellen's experience allowed her to see possibilities and solutions beyond our own visions. We highly recommend her services and in the end we actually saved time and money on what could have been costly mistakes. We are extremely delighted with the outcome!"

"In 1998 we worked together to furnish and decorate my condo in Cambridge, MA. I was most impressed with your ability to listen to how my husband and I live in the space and understand we wanted a warm, comfortable, simply elegant look that incorporated a few cherished antique pieces. I followed your advice and purchased through you a sofa, three lamps, a rug, two chairs, two coffee tables, a dining room table and six chairs and window treatments. You suggested paint colors and finally when everything was in place, helped hang pictures. For thirteen years I have LOVED everything you recommended. I have enjoyed just sitting in the living room and looking around. Each item separately and with the other items has brought me great pleasure." "After we sold that condo and bought another in 2012, my very first call was to Ellen, who helped us with space planning, drapes, area rugs, furniture, and even a wall painting. I am so happy with all the decorative items Ellen suggested. I sit in different chairs and on the sofa to get various views of the room and think, "This is so beautiful to I get to live here."

tile3-67Ellen was an integral part of the decision making in all aspects of our home in New London. It’s been 6 years and everyday I’m grateful for her foresight and artist’s eye. From proper window sizing and placement to the perfect fireplace wall to the colors in our bedroom which differ slightly on each wall – our home is alive with sunlight by day and lovely ambient lighting by night. I would, and have, highly recommended Ellen to others.”

"living6-136We have worked with Ellen Winkler for several years and have never been disappointed. We had a large scale project and her firm handled all elements of the project including space planning, working with the contractor and all aspects of interior design such as furniture selection, draperies and window treatments, lighting, carpets and rugs and placement of art. Ellen provided comprehensive service from ceiling to floor and wall-to-wall. Each room is unique and yet all the rooms flow effortlessly. Ellen got to know us and, in the end, saved us time by making suggestions in line with what we would like and what would work best for our lifestyle. We have continued to work with Ellen on a range of projects and she always has a solution, even for some of the more out-of-the ordinary and complex requests we have. Ellen is prompt with requests and always a pleasure to work with."

"We simply wanted to write a note to...



"We simply wanted to write a note to thank you for all you did to help us with our new home. You are so talented and your level of customer service is phenomenal. Knowing ours was one of your smaller projects, we cannot thank you enough got the time and energy you invested into it; it was the epitome of treating every customer as your best. Your patience, as we dashed in (or called) daily with new questions and numerous changes along the way, was amazing. Your willingness to rework things again and again and you follow up with outside vendors demonstrated a level of service far above that of most companies today. From your staff's professional and personable greetings to your incredibly insightful color suggestions to your project manager's granite work and follow-up, every aspect of working with your company was an absolute joy. Thank you for running your company in the manner all companies should be run."

"Paula and I have been enjoying our new...

tile9-73"Paula and I have been enjoying our new steam room since mid July, and are happy to offer this letter of recommendation to other potential clients considering the use of your services.

This project was a fairly major undertaking, comprised of the design from scratch of a bath, the central feature of which is a fully functional stream room. The project required demolition of an existing bath, structural modifications (the need for which became apparent following the demolition), the selection of competent tradesmen, and the coordination of all their efforts throughout the project.

The design was carefully coordinated with us. The thoroughness of the design was evidenced by the small number of growth items  or "changes" during the course of the work. The tradesmen selected by you - carpenter, plumber, electrician, and tile man were top-notch. Importantly, they worked well together, facilitated by your careful coordination. The project manager was on the job many times over the seven weeks required for the construction to be complete. She immediately addressed any concerns raised during the project. She was also very responsive to the few follow-ups, or "punch list", items which invariably exist in any construction project.

In sum, Paula and I were extremely pleased with your efforts on this project, and look forward to our next opportunity to work together."
- Wayne and Paula, Grantham, NH
