Arlene, from Arlene Bobb Interior Design helped me in updating my den, as well as creating wonderful window treatments for my living room and bedroom. Arlene worked within my budget to develop a new look through fabric selections, colors and style. Arlene has a keen eye for detail and worked very hard to make me happy with all of the selections.

I am a contractor that has worked with Arlene Bobb on a number of projects. What I like about Arlene is that she really listens to the client. She manages all projects from start to finish keeping the client involved in every step of the process. Arlene pays attention to the smallest details and gets all projects finished on time. More...

Arlene and I first started working together about 15 years ago. She created a completely new and beautiful kitchen for me. My family and I have enjoyed using the kitchen space along with the dining room. She also designed new window treatments and made other improvements throughout my home. Years later everything still looks amazing!! I recently enlisted her wonderful design help with her attention to detail again for different areas of my home. The experience has been very pleasant, timely and within budget as before. I highly recommend Arlene for all your design needs! More...

She has an amazing sense of style and translates that so well into the beautiful spaces she decorates. She was the most patient person and worked within our budget.

Arlene Bobb came to our rescue. Linda and I were at odds as to how to improve our old bathroom in our master bedroom. We could not come to a common approach. As an engineer, most of the time I do my own home improvements. This project was beyond my skills as we wanted it fixed right and quickly.... More...

I am very pleased with the outcome of my bedroom. This is my third project working with Arlene & she continues to provide the advice, expertise, & materials needed to transform the room & make it unique & one of a kind. We covered all details of the project prior to beginning, & I was clear on the design. She respected my decisions but also asked me to step outside of my comfort level with a few ideas. I am absolutely glad I did, & love the new bedroom design. More...

Arlene and her team had done an amazing job helping us get our house ready for sale. Arlene came to our home in a very professional manner and helped us determine what needed to be put in storage. It wasn't an easy task but well worth the effort. In addition, she staged our home in a more pleasing manner to improve the overall look and feel. Our house never looked so good! We got lots of interest and sold our home quickly at above market price. Thank you so much to Arlene Bobb Interiors! We would recommend you to anyone! More...

Leaving a home I’ve lived in for nearly twenty-eight years isn’t easy, particularly when I’m leaving alone. Even moving to a new luxurious condominium wasn’t enough to offset the sadness and disorientation I was experiencing. There were too many unpleasant decisions to make about the dismantling of my home and too many challenging questions about various aspects of my future residence. When people asked me if I was excited about moving, I couldn’t even feign enthusiasm. It seemed perfectly fitting that the weather was miserable the night the Corinthian had its first official get-together for its current buyers. I almost didn’t go. Only curiosity about my future neighbors motivated me to attend. And, I’m so glad I did because that’s where met you, my fairy godmother. Though you’re much younger and more elegant than “Dorothy’s Good Witch”, in many ways your powers are the same. You have transformed my ordeal into a delightful project. With your input about what I should take and what I should supplement, I know how to proceed. Your ideas for placing furniture are more than just sensible: they are stylish and satisfying. When you talk about fabrics and colors, your genuine appreciation of quality and beauty is contagious. I would have to be made of stone not to feel your delight as a piece of furniture with the right dimensions, color, design, and texture emerges—or as a room with furniture, floor coverings, and window treatments takes shape.

How do you do it? How do you make a client feel like a queen moving into a palace? Caringly and competently. It is not an accident. You obviously make a special effort to get to know your client’s needs, budget, priorities, and stylistic preferences. With your knowledge, experience and flawless taste, I know I can’t lose.

When I’ve been hesitant about a particular suggestion, you’ve always found an alternative that had my approval, if not my blessing. During the past few months I’ve been working with you, I‘ve observed there is no such thing as impossible. If one idea doesn’t pan out, an even better one materializes. The most exciting moments are those when you announce the location of an elusive fabric or carpet or the solution to an annoying problem. You’re like the winner of a lottery. How wonderful that you should care so much!

Every time I know you are coming over to discuss the décor of a room in my condo, my spirit soars. I can’t wait to get home. No matter how tired I am after a long day of work, the time we spend together is enlightening, productive, and fun!

I feel as though you’ve given me a pair of ruby red shoes to help me accompany you down the yellow brick road. The closer we get to the unveiling of the rainbow, the more convinced I am of your wizardry. I feel confident that my condominium will not only reflect a harmonious compilation of my old life and my new—but also serve as a relaxing retreat and an exciting launching pad for the next stage of my life.

Your expertise, talent, creativity, flexibility, reliability, warmth, and charm are just a few of your winning traits that make you a pleasure to work with and a joy to know. Thank you ever so much for your impeccable guidance, growing friendship, and 100% discount on my custom made ruby red shoes.

Q&A

Our process starts with getting to know you. We ask a lot of questions. We listen attentively as you tell us what is important to you, as you share your ideas, your values, and the vision you might have for your home. Show us pictures. Tell us a story of a quaint chateau you stayed in while vacationing in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Perhaps you saw a room or space in a movie or a magazine that you absolutely loved. We want to hear about it. It all helps to paint the picture.

I don’t work by any one set of rules. I work mostly from instinct. I am always trying to create a sense of balance. I don’t mean necessarily pairs or symmetry—I mean aesthetic balance.
Your environment plays a big part in how you feel. You should live in harmony with your desires. I think comfort and chic should be synonymous.
I don’t work by any one set of rules. I work mostly from instinct.
Magic happens when you arrange and rearrange and then curate it again. Again working from instinct.

I love to make my client feel that their new designs we have created have made a wonderful impact on their lifestyle.

Ever since I was a child I loved building houses and making the furniture and placing it in the rooms.

Besides designing rooms and outdoor spaces, clients hire me for some of the following:

Paint color choices
Finding fabrics
Furniture, accent pieces
Light fixtures
Accessories
Choosing finishes
Tiles, and materials for bathroom and kitchen renovations
Rearranging rooms
Space planning with 3D CAD

Then she executes the plan down to every precise detail.
