Review From Pearland Client

Thank you for sending this review to me to post on my site.  Sharing with my viewers:
Donna,
just wanted to thank you once more for the wonderful job you did on our living room!  The entire family is enjoying it...I did not think it was possible to come up with a design that both my husband and I would completely love - considering our very different tastes.  But you did it!!! 
From the very beginning - you were VERY patient and accommodating and we really appreciate that...it was an extremely positive experience and we look forward to working with you again.
thanks
The entire Saenz Family

Pearland Living Room

We enjoyed working with Gladys and EC in their beautiful home.  This room had all the potential needed to fulfill the perfect space for this family.  Utilizing the stock pile of collected accessories and shopping for the right furniture and additional beautiful things, we came up with a room of their dreams.

Before:

After:

The empty niches were screaming for custom built ins.  Once done, they look as if they have been there forever.  We added the custom shelving and storage cabinets.
Before:

After:

This awkward little area was a bit of a challenge.  We decided on some vintage elements to give the space a touch of "what's in"  in 2012.  
Before:
After:


Left wall space looked out of place until styled.
Before:

After:
Per client's choice, we have lots of furniture to occomodate entertaining,
giving guest adequate comfortable seating.


The Mantel was everything but the emphasis in the room. 
Love the new art piece used now and the asymmetrical decor.

Before:

After:



A few masculine touches were chosen to design for both sexes. 
The original art helped to pull in the color scheme.







A view from the second floor.



This was a fun day of shopping with our client.

Thank you Gladys and EC for allowing me to post photos of your new space!!

Review from Marilyn/ Galleria Area Condo Makeover

Thank you Marilyn for this review send via Facebook back message.  


Donna, I just want you to know what a real pleasure it was to work with you while redecorating my 1st floor condo.  Your ideas were immediate and wonderful.  In addition, you were a very pleasant person to work with and went above and beyond your call of duty.  
It was also a lot of fun the first night we went shopping.  I haven't enjoyed shopping that much in a long time. Can hardly wait until we can start on my second floor.  Marilyn

Review from Basin St. Station Party Decor

Thank you Missy for this review sent to me via email.


Donna,
You have out done yourself.  Everything was perfect; the colors and all of the personal touches made it all very special.  Even though we worked long distance on this project, you pulled everything together beyond what I could have imagined.  I loved everything you did in the design, but I think my favorite thing was the pillow covers;the fabric was amazing and I know how hard you worked on making each and every one.
You are so talented and we were blessed to have you decorate for a very special occasion.
Thank you for everything, we have memories to last forever!

Basin Street Station, New Orleans

The Venue, Basin Street Station is an antique train station, now a tourist stop on the first floor and a large banquet facility upstairs on the forth floor.

A view of the entrance level floor.

This is the 4th floor where our event took place.  Donna Madden/Decorating for the Senses did all of the decor for the celebration of Kenny's 50th birthday celebration with nearly 100 guests.
This shot is a generic from Basin Street Station.  I am hoping the professional photographer got a
good complete view shot of our work.

Our color scheme was black, white and gray.



A collection of antique cameras, crespedia (billy button) flowers for a pop of color shaped the theme for our decor selections.


The entire party was done long distance via internet, and many emails.  We acquired  a floor plan and worked with the venue's event planner to fine tune all details. 

We customized throw pillows to be used on the outdoors patio area with special ordered fabric to scale to make our theme carry to the outdoors.


A settee was rented at a local New Orleans rental for our main focal point.







This shot was taken by the photographer.





This is a feature wall over the serving area...part of the venue's staple decor.  Love!


A great view of the city from the balcony.


Photos of Kenny "through the years" were featured on each table decor.



Thank you Kenny and Missy for allowing me to share photos of your event.  Kenny is my "little" brother.
Happy Birthday, Kenny!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
