Someone you can trust
"Creating a workplace where our 400 employees could feel at home was important for ALE Solutions. I wanted to work with someone that I could TRUST – Yamini was the perfect choice! As the nation’s largest provider of temporary housing for families displaced from their homes following disasters, our team works around the clock to serve families in need. I wanted to make them feel at “home” in the office and to create an atmosphere where employees looked forward to coming to work. Yamini embraced my love of mid-century modern design and sourced materials that created a cohesive and inviting look within all the spaces. Yamini quickly mobilized her vast resources and made recommendations that were right on target in both form and function. Her ability to just “get me” combined with her many talents allowed us to move in ahead of schedule! Yamini has my highest respect and recommendation."

Adheres to your budget
"Yamini brings superb expertise and professionalism to the job. In designing our kitchen from the ground up, she offered insightful design options from tile to flooring—always keeping our budget and personal taste in mind. Her attention to detail and excellent communication with contractors were at the highest level. Yamini stays up at night worrying about your home improvement project so you don't have too!"
Laura Foster and Scott Pitkin
Works within your timeline
“I found Yamini on Houzz.com on a whim and contacted her to finish decorating (from top to bottom) my 2 newly purchased luxury condo units within 3 months. The units were bought with future rentals in mind, so I put Yamini on a very strict timeline and small budget even with the level of luxury I asked for. She was not only helpful, very efficient, talented and flexible, she also acted as a mentor and a friend throughout the time I've worked with her. It was an intensive job given the circumstances, but she made it basically stress-free for me and the results turned out way better than I would ever imagine. I am purchasing other luxury condo units in the next few months and am looking to re-hire her without reservations.”
A great collaborator
"Yamini is a great designer. She is organized, smart, thorough, and a great resource for your project. She was a great collaborator and gave excellent advice."
Listens to you
"We remodeled several areas of our home and Yamini helped with much of the design, colors, materials, etc. We also engaged her to completely redesign our 1982 master and guest baths. The floors had carpet, toilets were pink, etc. Yamini drew up several designs for the rooms and brought a couple of ideas for us to review. All of them were great, so we had a hard time picking our favorite! We did not have time to spend away from work selecting materials, so Yamini listened to what we wanted and brought back a few material samples for us to preview and pick from. That was a big time saver for us."
Brings your space to life
"Yamini designed a kitchen and three bathrooms in my new home, as well as redecorating most of the other rooms in the house. She is lovely to work with, and extremely talented. She has a wonderful ability to understand what I envision, and bring it to life! She has offered countless creative ideas to enhance each project, and is extremely detail oriented. I am thrilled with the end result and would highly recommend Yamini."
Understands your style
"Yamini did a fabulous job, both with the remodel of my family room in a previous home and with the design of my newly constructed home. She is insightful, professional, and very hard-working. She understood what my style was and what my budget would allow for each project, and she offered me great choices that were exactly what I was looking for but would not have been able to find by myself. She was always quick to answer questions, drop by to help, and recommend professionals to assist with installation or any other needs. I was thrilled with the process and the outcome both times I worked with her, and I simply love the style she helped create in my new home, in particular. I recommend her highly."
Focuses on the details
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Yamini. She was exactly what I needed, someone with the skills and vision to take my undeveloped ideas and turn them into a fantastic new master bath. She is knowledgeable, easy to work with, and worries about every detail of the project. Highly recommended!"
