Testimonials

My wife and I were first time homeowners and hiring Sam to do our remodel was the best decision we could have made.  The home was a true fixer-upper that required real imagination and skill to realize it’s potential.

Several friends (amateur designers, if you will) came to the house, and while everybody had ideas of what could be done, it wasn’t until we hired Sam that a true vision was brought to the space.  She was able to give us multiple design options which was key in determining what the best design was for our needs.  Indeed, she was with us every step of the way (initial design conversations, multiple layout options, changes throughout the process, getting contractors to bid on the project, working with the contractor from start to finish, helping us with stylistic choices like the backsplash, the counter-tops, the bathroom tile, etc.) and I can say without hesitation, we would not have the house we have today without Sam’s tireless work.  She created a home that was both beautiful and functional, and we are forever grateful.

Samantha was amazing to work with!  She helped us completely reconfigure & remodel our upstairs.  She had fantastic vision, wonderful ideas, and presented us with several options.  Thanks to Sam, our home is now a perfect fit for our family, and we have added a great deal of value to it in case we ever decide to sell down the line.  I highly recommend using her for any design &/or remodel project!!

I can’t say enough how much I’ve adored working with Samantha! I called her because I wanted to add a bathroom and a walk-in closet. She listened to my ideas and came up with a better version of what I wanted.

But what was really exciting is that she took it an extra step and figured out how to add a third bedroom. It’s not something that I’d even considered, but it will add great value to my house and the additional cost is negligible. Working with Samantha has been a great experience: she’s dependable, meets deadlines and is very supportive. Samantha has a creative and dynamic mind; she really listened to what I wanted and then beat my expectations of what could be done. I highly recommend her.

Samantha Thompson walked into the house we had recently purchased and saw the potential like we did.  It can be difficult to make a renovation on a 1930s home feel organic and she did just that.  

I imagine that I may be a difficult person to work with because I have a million ideas (read: high maintenance), but she was patient through the entire process and had the perfect temperament.  Walls were moved, bathrooms were moved, hallways were moved, entry ways were created…this was no small task.  Thank you, Sam.

After talking to a few designers and contractors about our remodeling project, we went with Samantha because she was the only one who was able to come up with an amazing design for our 1st and 2nd floor.

A lot of the other people we talked to had a lot of trouble figuring out a new layout, but she had a vision and actually came back with 5 different options ranging in budget. You only hear horror stories of how awful a remodel can be, but being our first home and remodel, we were surprised at how easy it was and this was definitely because of Sam. She kept our project on track and really worked with us in the design and helped us in selecting every material from the flooring, to the countertop, the backsplash and paint color. She’s a hands on designer with a great eye!

All of our friends and family are in awe of the transformation Samantha created for us. My mom loved it so much that she hired her to design her first floor remodel all the way in Delaware! If you’re thinking of a remodel project, definitely contact Samantha! She’s a fantastic designer and was so great to work with!

Thank you so much for the incredible 2nd story addition! Samantha made the process(which we were dreading!) easy and fun. We really appreciated her professionalism and attention to detail. We were so impressed that Sam was able to make our dream become a reality – and in a timely fashion!

Adding a second story has given us so much more space and it is beautiful as well as functional. We have lots of friends with growing families and we will definitely be recommending you to all of them!

Sam is fantastic! She transformed our ugly, gaudy 1970s bathroom into something more beautiful and modern than we ever could have imagined! She really listened to what we wanted and came up with a design that made sense — both for the house and for our daily use.

We sold our house last summer and our realtor commented that “THIS is an A+ bathroom!” Now that we’re in a new house, we’re already speaking with Sam about renovating a bedroom and bathroom. There is no one else in LA we trust more!
