From Patrice's Clients
"I first met Patrice when my husband and I wanted to make some changes to our kitchen [major kitchen remodel, interior paint, interior doors] in 2016. Patrice came out to our home and had wonderful ideas. We immediately 'hit it off.' She helped us visualize that we could double the size of our small kitchen and make it open up onto our family room. It is a wonderful plan and we love it. Her ideas made the project work not only economically, but structurally. She worked tirelessly to make sure our kitchen remodel stayed within our budget and completion date.
Upon completion of the kitchen, she came back to do a final walk thru and made sure everything was done to our satisfaction, communicating with the contractor about it. I think she went 'above and beyond the call of duty'!
If we were to have another project to consider for our home, I would not hesitate to call Patrice, even though she is not living in our area any longer. We have maintained our friendship. Both my husband and myself would highly recommend any of Patrice's work." Polly & John, Thousand Oaks
"Patrice designed our kitchen and took it from an old 70's kitchen to a modern stylized kitchen. She took her drawings from concept to resolution in a highly professional manner. Her detailed drawings kept contractors on point and made it easy for everyone to follow. She worked with us and the contractor to make sure that we had the best possible results. We still get rave reviews and highly recommend Patrice." Dianne & Evonne, Palm Springs
"We hired Patrice to design the remodel of our home in Thousand Oaks [kitchen, 2 bathrooms, flooring, and paint inside and out]. She is so professional, punctual, honest, reliable and accessible whenever we need her. She is there to assist us in every step of the way and willing to assist whatever it takes. She did such an excellent job. I will highly recommend Patrice to anyone who is looking for someone you can trust." Yolanda & John, Thousand Oaks
"As a personal friend for several years, I can't say enough about Patrice. She is one of the brightest and most competent persons I have ever known. But her greatest strength is her integrity, and that is what sets her apart."
Ken, Thousand Oaks
“After living in our home for 20 years, my husband and I decided to remodel our kitchen with the purpose of updating and making the house more marketable when we decided to sell. We worked with Patrice, a Kitchen/Bath Designer with degrees in civil engineering who also studied architecture and interior design (specializing in kitchen/bath). She visited our home, measured and listened to our ideas and constraints. We wanted a creative and open design that allowed for more cabinets and counter space. After submitting several very different ideas, Patrice designed the ‘perfect plan’ that not only changed the look and functionality of the entire kitchen but spilled over to our family room, dining room and entry with new flooring. Although there was certainly more we could have done, Patrice stayed within our budget. What I liked most about working with Patrice was not only her innovation but the high professional standards for the work being done by the contracting crew. She visited frequently to check on the progress of the remodel and if something wasn’t right, she identified it before we did. Patrice was always available for questions and I appreciated her excellent customer service. We are certainly enjoying our new kitchen and maybe we won’t sell as quickly as we had originally planned.” Elieen & Steve, Thousand Oaks
"My business partner and I decided to find a local company for the kitchen of our latest desert flip project. We had used IKEA previously and, while satisfied with the product, the logistics were more difficult, and we felt the need to find a local source. I had a basic layout that needed to be turned into a real working kitchen and, with Patrice's experience, we were able to achieve that. As the saying goes, the "devil is in the details" and kitchen design is a prime example of that. Patrice hit on all aspects of the space, including basic functionality to reflective light, and everything in between. We were so comfortable with the end result that we also worked with Patrice for the bathrooms, pantry and wet bar. Installation is nearing and we are anticipating the realization of our initial sketches. Thoughtful discussions and thorough planning with Patrice give us confidence that our decision was the correct one."
Ken, Palm Springs
"Our family has worked with Patrice three different times and two different houses over the past 10 years. She provided us a full landscape design and implementation for our front yard which turned out to be a very successful project, a landscape design that we implemented ourselves for a backyard project, and just recently a kitchen remodel design resulting in a great layout for a busy family. Patrice is very detailed and thorough--and thinks of the lifestyle and the people using the space to be designed, and takes a practical approach. She can walk through the various steps of a project and help make something that seems overwhelming very manageable. She has a great eye for style and colors, and can help select materials for indoor or outdoor projects. We have gotten numerous compliments on the three projects where Patrice has helped us and we will continue to use her services in the future. Highly recommend!"
