A Chat with Diva Design & Decor (The Diva Decorator)
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Each client is unique and so is their home. We mold your personal style to create your dream room or rooms. From creating color palettes to room redesign or arranging, we do it all. The client emails pictures prior to the consultation, which makes the consultation more efficient.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I enjoy helping clients make their design dreams a reality. My friends and family pushed me to follow my dream to open my own business.
What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy meeting each client and getting to know them. You have to get to know client likes and dislikes, styles, budgets, and their wish lists. After all, this is their home. A home is should be warm and inviting, and I want each client to feel proud of theirs.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Trust is something that is hard to find in contractors. The most common feedback is that I am loyal and trustworthy and treat their home as my own.
