Success Stories

The best compliment we can receive as interior designers is an introduction from a happy client- and of course praise from satisfied homeowners is always quite welcome!  Here are a few from recent projects we’ve completed:

Traditional Living Room

A stunning combination of rich color, elegant finishes and an updated traditional style blend harmoniously in this Paradise Valley living room.

“I could NEVER have completed the remodel without Tanya’s help. Her exquisite talents and taste proved invaluable in reconstructing this modest, smaller home.”

Debra Gooding, Paradise Valley, AZ

 

“Tanya was a big help when we redesigned our kitchen.  She helped us with contractors and kept an eye on them for us.  I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with their design needs.”

Nancy Runyan, Scottsdale, AZ

 

“This was my first time working with not only a contractor but a designer and even though I was very nervous with the immensity of the project you both helped not only with the process but the beautiful results.

We’re loving …  our “new” home!  Still walking around and looking at everything and loving it.  Can’t decide which room to go sit in and read, guess I’ll just pick a different room everyday!”

Susie Sisco, Phoenix, AZ

 

“Tanya has an incredible ability to listen and observe.  She was able to interpret what we liked and was able to put together options for us to look at, feel, and use.  She played a key role in orchestrating choices for our cabinets, flooring, wall colors, colors and styles for furniture, rugs.  It was such an exciting experience.

“Tanya played a major role in designing our new home-she assisted the builders in some of the specifics of added features.  When our friends tell us how beautiful our home is we always acknowledge Tanya- she pulled design elements together – we couldn’t have done it without her!”

Scott & Sally Moffat, Scottsdale, AZ

 

Our interior design work spans all of the western US, including California, New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado.

“First, and most importantly, they listened and heard what my needs and wants were. They then gave professional direction to accomplish these goals.”

Marilyn McRae, Santa Barbara, CA

 

 

Many of our projects are second homes for clients who are not in town for much of the process, and working with a trusted advisor is key to their peace of mind throughout the duration of the construction and furnishing of their home.

 

“Tanya helped in so many ways with the renovations, and by that time we were back in North Dakota for the summer, so we had to rely on her to do a lot of extra work.

Tanya made an almost overwhelming job for us fun as we shopped for furniture, flooring, art, accessories, linens and dishes.”

Sandy Knoll, Paradise Valley, AZ

 

“Tanya provided design services for our soon to be completed condo renovation. I wanted a design that is stylish, comfortable and easy to maintain. Tanya captured this perfectly. Shopping for materials and furniture was stress free as she was able to direct our attention to those areas that would meet our criteria. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sesshu Design and look forward to moving into our newly renovated home.”

Maureen Liviniuk, Scottsdale, AZ

We value the relationships we have with our vendors, suppliers and craftsmen as well.  Working together as part of the overall team is what makes a project run smoothly and the end result truly successful.  The people we work with appreciate our professionalism and team attitude.

“Tanya is a true professional who is committed to her clients and her industry. Her vast knowledge of materials and resources enables her to provide her clients products that are environmentally friendly while meeting the design goals at the same time. If you care about the environment AND about good design, hire or work with Tanya.”

Joe Zazzera, Biomimicry Specialist, Founder-Plant Solutions, Living Wall-Indoor Plant Designer/Vegetated Roof Consulting, LEED AP

“Tanya is one of the most creative people I know.  She has a natural ability to relate to people.  Her design intuition is remarkable and has the work to prove it.  I would love to have her design one of my homes someday!”

Jeff Beall, President and CEO at Nimbus, LLC

“Tanya has been a pleasure to work with all the years that we have known each other.  She is a very professional talent in the field of interior design.  Her training is extensive as is her experience.  Consequently, she is always willing to examine new ways of interpreting and presenting design solutions to the client. She understands color and the interplay of texture, all critical elements in creating good interior design. She is a pro at relating to floor plans and can easily analyze room layouts so that improvements can be made. Her background has demonstrated that she is intuitive about scale and the use of lighting to enhance a designed space.  Most importantly, Tanya loves what she does and always makes it fun as she welcomes a challenge. As a representative from the Trade that has worked with Tanya for years, it is always a pleasure to be a a part of one of her projects.  She gets things done and has fun doing it. Its not just about the destination, although that is important to Tanya and her clients.  It is also about the journey. Wish we all practiced work in that fashion.”

Ted Adams, Tai Ping Carpets

 

“Photographing for Tanya has shown me that she has a keen eye for designing spaces and using materials to set a feeling for a room. Her abilities allow her to create spaces that are visually playful, but lend themselves to the reality of actually living in them. She demonstrates this with each and every project she becomes involved with. If you are in the market for an interior designer, hiring Tanya is a sound choice.”

Jerry Portelli, Jerry Portelli Photography

 

“I was very impressed with Tanya’s focus and dedication from full service large scale projects to even the smallest. She is committed to exceeding her clients expectations from the very moment she begins each project.”

Jeff Hillis, Hillis Bolte Construction
