At An Intimate place/BU Designs we offer a Lifestyle of design services. InteriorDesign (residential and commercial), designed events, fashion stylist, home staging, and window/store design
I am an old friend of the designer, Bernard Underwood, and admirer of his beautiful mind. I have learned so much from his unique designing style, which comes second to none.
From playing with heights of accessories to the number of flowers in a vase to embracing colors/textures, his creativity does not have an off switch. I recently hosted a party so I enlisted Bernard for ideas. I gave him the colors/theme & he created table options fit for royalty but within my budget.
Just as much as he is talented, he is a dedicated professional whose work ethic is immeasurable! More...

I made a decision in 2017 to move to LA and before making transition I was introduced to BU Design, who made life easier than I could ever imagine.
My entire townhome was furnished, painted and accessorized by BU Design. I know it sounds too good to be true I literally didn’t have to lift a finger. The lines of communication always stayed open, total professionalism, and eager to please. #totallifesaver More...
We hired Bernard to design our new home and it was the best thing we have ever done. Not only he made our home into this beautiful place but incorporated our personality and style in his design process. The feeling of walking in to a home and to see how each and every piece is not only hand picked but the effort, time, and thoughtfulness he put into it. He understand what your vision is and just delivers it. He started our house with nothing but white walls and transformed it into this beautiful, modern yet cozy home. We highly recommend him!!!

Bernard Underwood and his top notch team transformed my living room and dining room from drab to FAB! With bright white walls and neutral carpet I didn't know where to start. ..I just couldn't visualize all the details. Somehow Bernard was able to read my mind as he demonstrated with the design board he presented with color swatches, material samples and furniture pictures that was exactly what I wanted. It was at that moment I felt relieved knowing he had everything under control. His creative talent, patience, attention to detail and exceptional service is superior. I especially love his personal line of beautifully scented Billy candles. Thank you Bernard for making my home An Intimate Place! More...
B.U. Designs worked with a friend of mine who has a condo in Dallas, TX. He made small changes to the condo, but it made a huge difference. Bernard uses colors and fixtures that make a statement and he works with your budget - I love that about him. He loves what he does and will work with you to make your home something you love!

Bernard and his team executed the design for my daughter's wedding and coordinated the wedding as well. The space was challenging and needed to accommodate both the wedding and the reception. It was also my daughter's and her fiancé's desire that their wedding reflect their unique style and relationship. Bernard managed to make the wedding couple and Mother Of The Bride both delighted by creating a magical translation of the venue which mirrored this most enchantingly devoted bride and groom. More...
I have had the distinct honor of working with Bernard Underwood and his team at An Intimate Place for the grand opening of one of our clients.
All I can say is, "Wow." Bernard's sense of style and elegance reminds me of European designers of days gone by, ie; Coco Chanel and Yves St. Laurent. Bernard is a consummate professional who inspires creativity and excellence. When he and his team walks through the door, imagination follows. I've never known anyone who could turn a boring basket of napkins into a colorful bouquet.
If I ever need design (on any level) whether it be my home or a client event--An Intimate Place will be on my team, without question.

I needed a lot done with a little $ to me, did not even think much could be done with $1,000-$1,500.
Not only was something done but an amazing creation in every room of my condo thanks to Bernard ! !
Bernard had a traditional off white colored seat covers on my dinning room chairs recovered in a beautiful blue, which he remarkably did himself !
I was highly impressed and it sure made a difference .
Adding just a few different pillows to my living room furniture made a HUGE Difference !!
I especially love a beautiful light fixture Bernard found and him and his asst hung them selves in my dinning room.
He painted a wall in my living room & I love it!
I honestly feel like my place looks like a picture in a magazine and its a great feeling !! More...
An Intimate Place did an amazing job of decorating our home for my daughter's graduation party. They took the time to consult with us on the specifics of what she desired and then FAR exceeded our expectations! From the decorum to their professionalism and assistance with the overall flow of the party, Bernard Underwood and his team were a CLASS ACT!! I cant wait to hire them for future events! I believe the truest sign of a consumer's satisfaction is their willingness to recommend a company to their friends and family. I highly recommend An Intimate Place. More...
Bernard Underwood is accomplished at making a house a home. His attention to detail and ability to translate your thoughts into a stunning visualization is unparalleled and unmatched.
Amazing is too light a word to describe what he has done.
I have NO decorating sense but what he did with my living room and master bedroom still boggles my mind. The color palette, the accessories and his patience as he pulled information from me should make him a saint.
Is it too much to say I love him and thank God for him and his talent!? More...
