Client Comments

Ann Russell
Relationship: Client

“Sherry, of Shaz Design, once again performed her magic in a major remodel of 4 rooms, foyer and hallway in our house. Warm rich colors for flooring and walls were used in our new powder bath and laundry room. Soothing wall colors transformed our master bedroom and new en suite master bath. Sherry designed our master bath with a spacious walk in shower, gorgeous tile and beautiful double vanity with marble sinks. A separate water and built in linen closet turned these 2 rooms into a paradise oasis. Our bedroom furniture was repurposed using milk paint and an accent color to showcase the intricate hardware design. His and her closets were added, giving us much needed space. Tasteful accessories and lightning throughout completed the look in each room. Sherry was professional and always mindful of our ideas and budget restraints. She went that extra mile to keep us within these. From start to finish, she helped make the transition as smooth as possible. We love what she accomplished with our 1st floor living spaces. We give her a 5 star rating and A+.

“The home design appointment provided me with the knowledge and information I needed to update my home without recommending all new replacement. I received tips on de-cluttering, how to use my existing home contents, as well as, recommendations for new purchases that would greatly enhance my home. Sherry was gentle in her approach and very knowledgeable. “

Tidewater Custom Modular Homes ,Inc
Relationship: Contractor

“Sherry is a very professional and knowledgeable designer. She is great to work with and has some great ideas! I would definitely call Sherry again. She is a kind person who remains dedicated to your project. Thank you Sherry for all the help you gave me to move forward with our new home project! ”

Relationship: Client
“I do most of my own decorating but there are just times when you need a professional. Sherry helped me with three small projects that really finished my dining room and kitchen makeovers. My dining room chairs needed not only reupholstering but new padding. Sherry gave me a good fabric selection and arranged for pickup and delivery. Then I wanted a new window treatment to really set off my bay window. Again she helped wit the fabric, design, and even a little bling. The final project was for new lighting in the kitchen and adjoining sunroom. She had several books for selecting and we agreed on two lovely updated fixtures. Sherry listens to what you want and has the resources to meet almost any need. Oh, and did I say she is very reasonable and willing to work on a room or the whole house?”

Nathan Hill/Real Estate Broker
Relationship: Client
“Sherry and I have worked together over the past three years serving the needs of my clients who are getting their homes ready to sell in this very competitive real estate market. This can be a daunting task for the seller and for me as their Realtor! Sherry has always been there for each of us, with her calming and professional demeanor! Sherry always keep the sellers' feelings about their home in mind as she shares suggestions and recommendations for changes they should make in order for their home to look the best it can be to a prospective buyer. I am always amazed how Sherry can turn a room, a kitchen, a whole house into an outstanding showcase by making some very simple changes using the owners' existing furniture and accessories-without them having to go to an added expense!

The assistance she has provided my clients and me have resulted in homes selling much quicker than the competition.

I highly recommend Sherry to anyone who wants a professional who who very client/customer focused and who gets results...By the way, she has helped many of my clients who are buyers get settled in their new homes!
