We hired Shelly and Amanda to help us furnish our entire home. We had moved from a one bedroom apartment with old IKEA furniture into a 3 bedroom, 1700sf house. ..and we'd made the move with a 6-month-old baby, during the holidays, and we both work full time. We knew that we wanted to upgrade to adult furnishings that we would love for a long time and get rid of pretty much everything we had from our apartment, but we were completely overwhelmed when it came to making it happen.Shelly and Amanda came and did a walk-through of our house, took measurements, talked to us about our style preferences and how we wanted to use the different spaces in our new place. They then came up with a bunch of ideas for us to react to in terms of aesthetics, colors, styles, etc. We are very decisive people but we're low on spare time, so it was awesome to have a specific list of things to say "yes" and "no" to rather than have to do a bunch of searching for things ourselves. They really listened to what we said and accounted for all of our preferences. Shelly has a knack for finding ways to make spaces more efficient and useful, which I loved. Amanda's eye for color and style is exceptional. There were a few times when I was pretty skeptical about a suggestion but went with it anyway (you can always return stuff) but then I ended up loving it more than anything I would have chosen myself. In the end they did layout, design, furniture, paint color and accessory selection for our nursery, office, living room, family room, master bedroom and office. It was a monster project. It takes a while to get through all of that, but that was mostly because some furniture orders just take a long time and we did it in phases. They were responsive, flexible and helpful throughout. At the end of the project I had Shelly add up the total cost of furnishings plus the cost of their time. After the design discounts they got for us we still came out ahead (i.e. we paid less for their services than we saved in discounts). So it was 100% worth it based on numbers alone. Add in the savings to our sanity and the fabulous end result that we couldn't have envisioned ourselves, and it was 500% worth it. Our home looks beautiful and well put together - we love it and get compliments all the time. Thanks Amanda and Shelly! More...

I had such a great experience working with Amanda and Shelly to transform the main living area in my condo. Despite having some ideas of what to do, I was overwhelmed at the thought of trying to do it myself and have the end result be something that was I happy with. DesignFix to the rescue. I loved that we met for an initial consultation where really tried to get to know me and what I like. And the rest of the process went smoothly as we moved through finalizing a floorplan and then picking furniture and other décor for the room. They really listened to my feedback and were open to my suggestions along the way as well. It was a truly collaborative experience all the way through. I am over the moon happy with the end result and even got a little misty eyed at the end of installation just seeing the transformation. I will happily recommend DesignFix to anyone looking for an interior designer. More...

I am glad that I hired Designfix to help me with my house renovation project. I could not have gotten my project done without Amanda's help. Over the past few months, Amanda and I have worked together and renovated three bathrooms and a kitchen. I consulted her on every decision because she saves me from making mistakes and is often able to guide me towards items that I never would have found. She was incredibly patient with me as I flip-flopped between ideas. She is also kind, honest, and dedicated. She has great communication, listens closely and is extremely efficient and detail-oriented. Finally, her eye for color is amazing. Everyone loves the color scheme of my house.Because of Amanda's help, everything turned out wonderfully. More...

What a fabulous experience working with these folks!! Amanda & Shelly helped me create a "reading room" in a somewhat awkwardly shaped space in my house -- and over a year later, I'm *still* talking about how much I love it! ! The job involved helping me identify furniture, shelves, lighting, and a rug, and working with my existing items. They listened to what I was trying to accomplish, worked with my budget, and adapted selections and recommendations based on my feedback. They attended to even the smallest details, like getting a prized textile from past travels framed AND hung on my wall (they arranged for a handy man to come do the install, along with hanging photos). They styled the final bits for a polished yet comfortable and cozy finish. Finally, their website made working through options super-easy. I've subsequently both recommended them to friends and have people ask me for the recommendation after seeing the finished project. Thank you! More...

We had a great experience working with Amanda! She is a very good listener and she “gets” us. I hired her to help us refresh our kitchen. We didn’t know where to start. Amanda first created a color palette that complements the adjoining rooms. Next, she helped us choose counter top and backsplash material. From there, we chose wallpaper, paint and window treatments. Amanda has great relationships with vendors and contractors who are very talented and professional. Everything was completed beautifully. We are so happy and will definitely call on Amanda for our next project. More...

Amanda and Shelly are excellent at what they do! We were moving across the country and were in desperate need of help. They were able to talk with us on the phone and Skype to determine what we were looking for and to show us what they had found/planned. They even looked at our apartment before we were in San Francisco so there wouldn't be a delay between us and our ordered furniture arriving. They were time-sensitive. Amanda was great at picking out pieces that would look appealing. Shelly balanced that with confirming that the items would not only fit into the space, but that they would be the most effective and efficient use of the space. They are both friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you! More...

We are here at our place in Kauai for the first time since the remodel you did, and we are so, so happy with all you’ve done. Wow! It’s just perfect, and it feels like our home now. We are so grateful for what you did and for your skills and talents with design.

Another benefit is that our condo rentals have significantly increased since the new photos went on the web site. It only had 2-3 unbooked nights per month between January to April. That’s completely different than pre-remodel, so the changes you’ve made have clearly been appealing to renters as well. The people who’ve stayed in our condo since the remodel have consistently commented on how beautiful it is. Yay!

We contacted Amanda and Shelly after our kitchen remodel was completed to help us with a floor plan for our new open concept living/dining/kitchen area and design direction. They really took the time to listen to our needs, desires, and delivered several great options for layout and design direction. With their help, we have that extra nudge of confidence to proceed with furniture selection and colors. The Design Fix team was very flexible with working with us to adjust the scope of our project in phases, helping us to manage our priorities and budget. Love the convenient online scheduling tool too. I would definitely recommend Amanda and Shelly's services to friends and look forward to working with them on the next phases of our project. More...

I hired DesignFix to help finish up some spaces in my home. Amanda and Shelly were so easy to work with. I’ve had some not so great experiences with other designers who have their own idea of what your space should look like and you’re left with a room that you don’t love and a hole in your wallet. Working with the DesignFix team from start to finish was so much fun. They came up with great ideas and amazing style boards. I love the end result and couldn’t be any happier. More...

We work with Design Fix often and I am always impressed by their professionalism. They offer a unique design service offering practical solutions for Bay Area homes. They usually come to our wood furniture store to help the customer with storage solutions. In addition to our products, they work their magic and transform a room for their clients into a functional, warm and beautiful space. They are great about really listening to their clients. I have experienced the satisfaction and joy expressed by their clients. They involve their clients in every decision. More...

Loved working with Amanda on my bathroom remodel. I had a vision but needed some help to get to the finish line! Amanda very quickly helped me zero in on my vision and added the subtle but special feature I was missing.

She has a wonderful ability to design to meet each customers individual taste. I could not be happier.

She assisted us in so many different aspects - paint colors, tile style layout, lighting, furniture layout, etc. What we really appreciated was that she was able to work within our budget - helping us to keep costs more reasonable, yet never having to compromise style. We appreciated her help at both big an little decision points along the way. Superb design team! More...

Amanda is phenomenal. She brought color samples to the first meeting and had a color palette going in an hour. Took us to a floor store and we were on our way selecting flooring with her help. She advised us on so many details that two other design professionals had totally missed out on. She was super responsive to emails and phone calls - always with thoughtful answers. She helped us with everything - from light fixtures to accessories. We were super happy with our whole house design. And all within our budget. We will be calling her again for all our design needs and highly highly recommend her!! More...

This company really knows color, design, staging and organization! After remodeling, I didn't know what accent pieces to get or what kind of artwork would look good over the fireplace (and what do I do with the cool antique heirlooms I have? !). Shelly and Amanda gave me some great advice about item placement and punches of color that really pulled everything together. I am thrilled and look forward to hiring them again when the next project comes along. More...
