We first met Jeff at the sale of the house we currently live in. He had staged the house for sale. We always tell people that I don’t think we would have bought the house if it had not been staged by him. While it is a beautiful Georgian Revival it needed a lot of work. However, we noticed none of it. Everything was in its place and we only could imagine our family fitting in perfectly. By the time we noticed how much work there was to do, we were hooked.

Seeing what Jeff had done with the staging and then getting to know him in the months leading up our move in date we decided he would be our best bet for creating the atmosphere that we wanted. What we didn’t know was how truly versatile he is, and best of all what a great bargain hunter he is. Everything had to be redone and we had to change all our furniture as the style of our former house didn’t work with the style of our new house. Jeff worked with us to select light fixtures, paint colors and fabrics. He scoured second hand stores to find art work, tables, lamps and chairs and when we couldn’t find the right sofa and coffee table he scoured retail stores to find the right piece. He introduced us to reliable craftsmen from upholsterers to plumbers to plasterers, etc. we even left the faming or art work up to him. And that was just for the downstairs! Next we moved onto creating a master suite. Based on our experience downstairs we turned all decisions over to him from the overall design to selecting everything for the bathroom. The result exceeded our expectations, and best of all we have a beautiful bathroom that is style appropriate but has all the comforts of a 21st century bathroom. We couldn’t be more pleased!

We can’t say enough good things about our experiences with Jeff. He listens well, has vast knowledge of the different architectural styles that make up Providence, has a perfect sense of balance and space, is completely trustworthy and to top it all off is a very good person!
