I am a Luxury spec. builder / developer, I have been using Design Studio (Teri) for about 20 years. Teri is a valuable team member and a critical part of our organization. We utilize Teri’s expertise from the very beginning at land purchase to completed project and even staging our projects. Her input on trends, designs, changes and technology in our market is one of the secrets to our success. Teri and her team also offer our organization another critical benefit not only do they choose and spec materials, they also get us the very best price from her partner suppliers in a complete package. This saves us from misunderstanding, budget over runs and delays and keeps us competitive and profitable.
Teri has been wonderful and so helpful! In our case, she understands the demands and stresses of a family with young children who are also trying to remodel their house. She’s flexible, easy to communicate with, and knows what works for us. I always look forward to meeting with Teri and love all her great design ideas! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an interior designer.
Teri is incredible! I was so fortunate to be able to work with her. She went above and beyond her duties to help us. We had lost our current designer and needed assistance in choosing and ordering our countertops for our kitchen. Not only did she help me with ordering samples that she thought would look good with our colors, but she also gave fantastic suggestions so we ordered the best countertop ever, for an extremely reasonable price. She was so responsive, I never had to wait long to hear back from her. And she even went several steps farther than necessary by even helping us find an installer. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and wouldn’t hesitate referring her to anyone, ever!!! I had poor experiences with the previous designers I had worked with and she completely changed my opinion about designers because of her tremendous help!
I have had the great pleasure to work with Teri over the years on projects in my home. Her professional manor, attention to detail, creative ideas and innovative concepts have helped transform my thoughts into amazing room designs.
We are currently working on our latest project and our first thought was: Design Studio, I am very excited to see our vision made a reality through Teri’s creative hard work and beautiful style.
Teri Koss does excellent work and has been simply terrific to work with. Her attention to detail and enthusiasm derives from her great understanding of interior design and creating the perfect atmosphere. I highly suggest Teri!
Teri Koss did an exceptional job with my home. From the beginning, she understood my idea of keeping everything in a lighter color and making the best use of space. Her choices in materials were fantastic. The design plan included furniture from Van Guard Michael Weiss, Peter Francis Collection, Burton James, and Lazar. Also, she had great contacts to help with the painting and shades for my home. Most importantly, Teri is very easy to work with and helpful with any questions/concerns I had. I would highly recommend Teri Koss with Design Studio.
I contacted Teri Koss after talking with professionals at Home Depot and a Door and Window vendor. I was overwhelmed and confused. I called Teri for a consultation and she put everything in perspective for me. She gave me a list of things I need to consider. Pointed me to vendors who were extremely professional. The contractor she suggested was terrific, honest. and professional. My kitchen and family room are beautiful but user/family friendly. I have now asked Teri to help me with a master bath that is falling apart. Teri is patient and never arrogant. She listens to your needs and budget and willingly works within your budget. I recommend her highly.
Teri from Design Studio did a phenomenal job on my three bathrooms remodel, bedroom decoration, and color consultation for the walls throughout my house. The results completely exceeded my expectation. Teri was very involved every step of the way through the whole 6-month remodel process by visiting the site to monitor the progress and made adjustment if necessary. Also she listened to me and made sure the design truly reflected my personal tastes. She is highly professional, incredibly experienced, as well as personable. I feel extremely lucky to find Teri and Design Studio on the web and got to work with her for my major remodel project last year. I would love to work with her again anytime and would be gladly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an awesome interior designer!
