“I recently had the pleasure of working with Vera Bahou, of DesignHaus Interiors, on renovating our basement. Vera has beautiful taste, an amazing eye for colors, and a wealth of resources. She is very organized, meticulous and candid. Vera took the lead in drawing the future design for the basement, developing the proposed budget, and setting up appointments with various showrooms. In selecting designs and furniture, Vera would offer her tasteful advice, while being respectful of the clients' views. She reached out to construction builders, electricians, glass and marble vendors etc....and often requested numerous estimates to ensure competitive bidding. Vera supervised their efforts and worked tirelessly to ensure they delivered. I was also impressed with her depth and wealth of expertise, be it in colors, wall decor, window treatments, furniture, tiles, marble, glass, accessories, carpeting or other.
What I found most refreshing about her was her assertiveness and candor, be it with me, the vendors, or the contractors hired to do the actual construction. She held them accountable and did not hesitate to ask them to re-do the work if she felt it was not up to the highest quality standards. Her customer focus was much appreciated and her diplomacy in interacting with vendors and contractors was very impressive. At the end of the day, our basement bathroom and bar looked beautiful, and the furniture, wall decor and paint job was bold and very attractive.
In a nutshell, Vera Bahou is a truly creative, artistic and professional designer and I highly recommend her for anyone interested in turning "plain" into "beautiful".”
“Before meeting Vera of DesignHaus Interiors my decorating style was "safe". Vera's expertise in color and design have broadened my decorating perspective, and given my home a fresh appearance that truly compliments my essence. Her bold and innovative ideas are an exciting mix of creativity and compassion for green living.”
“Prior to working with Vera of DesignHaus Interiors, my idea of color was white or beige. Vera introduced me to color. I now have a home with color (peach, melon, yellows etc). One of the challenges was updating our den/family room. My husband considers this his space as do I, so a compromise was needed Vera was able to make us both happy by using the right color combo, comfortable furniture and adding accents of our very different hobbies/interest.
We are now in the process of building a new home. I called on Vera again. The plans showed 4 bedrooms and a very small laundry room (a closet) I wanted an exercise room and a large laundry room. The builder was unable to come up with an acceptable solution. Vera reviewed the floor plans and by eliminating some walls, moving some plumbing I have exactly what I wanted. The house is still a work in progress, but I am looking forward to working with Vera. She keeps me focused, organized and has great decorating ideas. Vera helps eliminate the stress and makes building and decorating a new home fun.”
“Vera is a terrific listener with an eye for the clients taste and budget. I can highly recommend DesignHaus Interiors for any project relating to remodel/and or design.”
