JUDY OLSON INTERIORS
The Get-It-Done Designer
What our customers say...
"She listened to what we wanted"
We are so pleased with our experience with Judy. We had Judy help us redecorate two rooms in our house. From the first sketches she made at her first visit, I knew she would do a wonderful job. She listened to what we wanted, paid attention to the other furniture in our house and our tastes, and was very aware of our budget. Judy managed the whole project for us--was there when workmen were around, for furniture delivery, and staged both rooms! That was money so well spent. We are thrilled with both rooms. They went from cold, uncomfortable rooms to the two most popular rooms in our house. We have received so many compliments on the furniture and lay-out of both spaces. I would recommend Judy most highly!

"She took away the stress"
We love the space that she has created and it's been a blessing. As a project manager she took away the stress of dealing with the contractors and as an interior designer worked with us to achieve a look and feel that worked both with me and my wife. Will use her again in a New York minute.

"I was SO impressed"
When Judy says she wants to satisfy her client 100%, she means it! After living in our home for 25 years and raising 3 children in it, it was time for a major overhaul!! Most importantly our kitchen and family room needed the most attention. We started there and I was SO impressed when Judy sat down during our first meeting and sketched out a design for the kitchen and family room. Judy knocked the socks off my contractor when he saw the design build plans. He didn't have to do anything to them for the permits. Judy is extremely organized and I hired her for the management of the project as well. Her communication skills are excellent and it was a relief for me to not have to deal with the problems that came up, which always do with a project this size. I absolutely love my new kitchen and family room!!
"She is very easy to work with"
I recently had Judy work with me to replace furnishings and redesign a number of rooms in my house. She is very easy to work with, professional and has an uncanny ability to grasp a client's (at least this client's) personal taste and blend it with her own in suggesting selections of furnishings, room colors, etc. She runs on time, seems to always be available and has a good sense of humor, to boot.
"Exceeded my expectations"
I hired Judy to help me with my new home design in San Ramon, and she has exceeded my expectations. Judy spent hours getting to know my family and me so that she could gain insight into the type of home environment that would make us happy. I find her very easy to work with. She has gone out of her way to make sure that my husband and I were pleased with the results of her work. She has accommodated my busy work schedule and always made sure that I was comfortable with both major and minor design decisions. I found that Judy took our input very well and we are extremely pleased with the result.

"She wants you to love your space"
I have had positive experiences with designers in other states so I have some experience in this area. I had met with another designer at my previous home and was not impressed so when I moved into my current home, I was back on the hunt. I talked to designers who had up front minimum's on size of project which I didn't care for. Judy was willing to work with me regardless of my budget (which ended up being well over the minimum's the other designers had). Judy was attentive to our requests but politely discouraged or redirected some which would have derailed the overall look we were going for (which I clearly realize now). My style is fairly niche since I am not from here and although it wasn't a style she typically designs - she was able to flex and nailed the look. She was sensitive to things that were personal to us while still bringing style to the room. One thing to realize is she is fairly particular when picking out furniture and accessories but when I saw the difference of the things she pointed out, I now notice it everywhere I go and her being particular is what made my room look great. She wants you to love your space and works hard to help you achieve it.
"She is a genius!!!"
My husband and I textured the master bedroom and the downstairs bathroom and hallway and painted them in the colors that Judy selected. OMG – she is a genius!!! My painters have painted all the current colors in my home and have never commented on the color selection. They could not say enough about the colors for the master bedroom/bathroom. They thought that the accent wall was a brilliant choice and went so well with the wall colors. It looks BEAUTIFUL!!! The rooms look bigger, brighter and yet warm and welcoming. Judy has an incredible eye. I am amazed at her talent and am very thankful that I found her. Thank you so much Judy!
"Cost-effective and aesthetically beautiful"
My first experience with another so-called designer was not good. So I was very hesitant to use the services of another designer, based on my bad experience. Judy came by our home, made suggestions for wall color and decor. She presented two design schemes with two different wall colors. Both were beautiful, but I chose the more conservative moss green/navajo white. We jumped on the suggested wall color because I couldn't stand another minute of the drab, flat paint that was on the wall. The change alone made a dramatic look in our living and dining room. After painting our walls, I knew that I could let go of my hesitance in Judy's suggestions. I do not have the ability to see the big picture, but Judy does. I couldn't imagine what the area rug that she suggested would look like in my home. When the rug was delivered and we put it in the living room, we could now see the change, the warmth that was greatly needed in our home. Judy asks for input, makes suggestions that are cost-effective and aesthetically beautiful. I highly recommend Judy, and will once again thank her here for a job beautifully and well done!

"Made a huge difference"
Having Judy as a part of our kitchen remodel planning made a huge difference and was a key element of a successful project. We had an idea in mind for the design but it was great to get her feedback in the planning stage. She made several suggestions that greatly improved the results. We also needed her guidance on material choice and she did a great job steering us away from some initial choices that would have made the space feel too busy. I'd recommend her- she is patient, thoughtful and professional. Her work made a big difference in our final outcome and we were very pleased.
"Judy is great!"
Judy is great! We reached out to Judy with a HUGE list of items to discuss with her. What can I say, we were clueless when it comes to how to decorate a house and how to best use our open space. Judy came to our house and provided great feedback on paint colors for our interior, drew a floor plan design for future furniture (provided exact size dimensions), and provided us with a list of furniture places to check out that would cater to our furniture tastes. Later, Judy helped us via email to ensure the furniture items and rug choices we were selecting went well together. I have recommended Judy to several friends and plan to work with her in the future again to complete the design of the rest of my house.
