“It has been a pleasure working with Alicia Paley to create a beautiful, functional and peaceful living space in our home. Alicia worked with my husband and I to design, furnish and accessorize our living room and entry. Having no previous experience working with an interior designer, we were put at ease by her gentle professional manner and her guidance through the process. She was organized and answered our emails promptly. She took the time to discover our tastes and preferences, along with the specific activities that we expected to enjoy in the room. She then used those preferences as a guide in sourcing furniture, accents and simple window treatments. It was made a little more difficult, because I knew what I wanted to create, but I didn’t know the terms of the profession needed to describe it. Alicia bridged that gap and was patient with me, making adjustments as we went along to assure that the end result was a space that we would love. And we do love it. The pieces she found, which are all lovely in their own right, are also interesting when they are arranged together along with some favorite items we already owned. At one point, it became clear that in order to find “that certain” table, it would have to be custom made. Alicia connected us with a local artisan woodworker who made us a simply perfect table out of beautifully grained hard wood, just as we had envisioned. Additionally, she guided us in fine-tuning adjacent rooms to pull it all together. We recommend Alicia Paley with no reservations, and plan to work with her again when we proceed to the next area of our home.”
