We worked with Debbie from P.A.S. Design on a top-to-bottom gutting of a 100-year old rowhouse in the Annex. She was a wonderful full-service designer and we are very happy with our finished product.
Debbie did everything from find contractors to bid on our project, negotiate on price, work with the project manager to schedule the work, draw the designs for our new layouts and elevations, and took us to choose all our finishes and even furniture. She stayed involved throughout the project, frequently visiting the job site to make sure everything was on track, and working with the contractor anytime there was a problem or dispute (like our flooded kitchen). Our project was very large, including knocking down 4 walls, replacing the floors, renovating the kitchen, converting an existing bathroom + bedroom into a single master bathroom, and re-painting the entire house.
Debbie has very classic taste, and knows high-end design elements very well. I would find things I liked in magazines, give them to Debbie, and she would draw up the schematics and work with our contractor to get it done! Our bathroom is fully to her credit, as she helped on everything from the layout, millwork design, mirror design, tile elevations and glass work. It is totally worthy of its own magazine photoshoot (I think).
We would highly recommend Debbie to anyone who wants a classic, high-quality, professionally-designed home.
