Over the years, we have been honored to work with a wide variety of clients, both residential and commercial, on projects large and small. The best of all compliments to receive is a testimonial from a happy client. We truly love working with our clients to create not only a wonderful result but a positive experience throughout the project.
Here are a few testimonials we have received for our work.
When we moved from Boston to Charlottesville I did not know where to start to decorate our home. We had a bare light bulb in the foyer and dining room.
Andrea was “brilliant” at recommending the perfect chandeliers for those areas as well as replacing sconces and breakfast room light. What a huge difference all her suggestions made in updating our house and reflecting our personality.
She was wonderful to work with and understood I wanted to use some of the furnishings we already had. She has great ideas, access to unique resources and the best workers. I would highly recommend Andrea for you – whatever your taste and decorating style she has a great eye, great taste and will help you create a home you love.
Andrea was a great help in the design decisions for our new construction and also worked with us on the selection of furniture and rugs. Her advice was invaluable and she was respectful of our budget.
From a Happy Virginia client
Andrea has an excellent design sense and is a pleasure to work with. She has helped with many remodeling projects in the office, from kitchen renovations, supply room, and copy room renovations, and an entire office redesign. She not only has an eye for style but for functionality.
She intuitively “gets” our style and offers excellent suggestions. I thoroughly enjoy working with Andrea and know that our projects are in good hands when she is involved.
I am writing to say what a truly great experience I’ve had working with Gibson Design. Not only is Andrea Gibson knowledgeable and experienced in home systems, construction, and materials, but she is a good listener with a fabulous eye for design and aesthetics.
Knowing we were on a very limited budget she worked hard to save us time and money in our home improvement process.
By helping us prioritize our improvement ‘wish-list’ through identifying which improvements would give us the biggest ‘bang for our buck’ we avoided waste and making costly mistakes.
She brilliantly redesigned our tiny and awkward 1960’s bathrooms turning them into inviting places. She guided us through construction and helped us purchase bathroom fixtures, light fixtures, rugs, and more, saving us time and money. I couldn’t be happier with results and highly recommend her. …Oh, and did I mention she has a great sense of humor?!
We have been working with Andrea on a major renovation involving the interior, exterior and a new addition–getting our home ready for us to age in place.
Andrea is very professional and takes real pride in her work. Her years of design experience, extensive contacts, and depth of knowledge have added so much to our project. At every step of the project she has been there for us and her attention to detail and thoroughness have helped enormously.
Most importantly, Andrea is a pleasure to work with–she is warm, friendly, and easy to get along with, but she also can be firm when needed, for instance in working with contractors, subcontractors, and vendors. Having her on our team, on what could easily have been an overwhelming project, has been a great comfort, and we highly recommend her.
Our experience with Gibson Design Group was our first with a professional designer, and going into the project we were concerned that we would be pressured into buying expensive or fancy items or that we’d end up with a showplace instead of a home.
Neither could be further from the truth. Andrea listened carefully, asked probing questions, and when she came back with suggestions, they were fabulous — not what we would have ever dared to select on our own, but after all, that’s why we hired a professional! We are just delighted with the results.
Our home now has a comfortable, “finished” appearance … not at all fancy or stuffy, but clearly intentional. Andrea gave us ample storage, enabling us to stay organized and ready for guests anytime. I hope we have an opportunity to work with her again in the future.
Andrea Gibson has designed and executed five projects for me over the years, beginning with arranging what I had to make a more attractive and efficient use of space in a new house, through the complete recovery of a large townhouse in terrible shape and designing built-in furnishings to our taste and budget.
Most recently she created a beautiful and practical living space in a condo in Philadelphia, traveling frequently to supervise the work being performed by a crew she identified through her network of contacts everywhere.
From our first project, she has always been able to determine what I would like, rather than promoting a current style, and is always mindful of my budget. I cannot imagine working with anyone else, and consider myself very lucky to have had the help of such a talented, sensitive designer every time I moved to a new situation. I cannot recommend her highly enough
