Houzz 5 Year Anniversary and DecRenew Interiors Award


"Rave Reviews" Award

Feeling very honored today after receiving an award last night at the 5 year anniversary party for Houzz.  It was a great event at Pirch in Dallas.

If you haven't heard of Houzz, you definitely must know about it!  They are a platform for home remodeling and design, bringing homeowners and home professionals together in a uniquely visual community.


I have been a part of Houzz since 2010 and have built my design profile which has 37 of my projects and 57 reviews. Besides my website, Houzz is where most people land when searching for an Interior Designer in their area. It is also where my clients go to review me after we have completed their job.


Houzz is a platform that I use every day.  It has been an incredibly useful tool for me as a designer. My clients are able to save photos to idea books that we can then discuss in detail during their consultation.  They can write notes with each photo to help them remember why they saved that particular photo. I find that having photos that the client can show me that they like or dislike helps me define their design style more efficiently.

The Houzz Story

"Houzz started with a house. When founders Adi and Alon remodeled their home, they started the way these projects often do: with a tall stack of magazines and referrals for home professionals from people they knew. But after those piles of torn out pages failed to make their dream a reality, they felt stuck. There had to be a better way.
So they built Houzz. A place to browse and save beautiful home photos. A place to find the right design and construction professionals. A place to connect with others who have been there too. Houzz started as a side project but has become a community of more than 35 million homeowners, home design enthusiasts and home improvement professionals—across the country and around the world.
Whether you are starting a complete kitchen remodel or just looking for the perfect bedside table, the Houzz community of homeowners and professionals is here to help. And when you are ready to start your project, Houzz is the best way to get inspired, discover products and to find and collaborate with the perfect architect, designer or contractor."
Everyone wants to read reviews right? I read reviews before I purchase just about anything. I just met with a client yesterday that told me she could tell what kind of person I was by the reviews she read. I LOVED that because the relationships I have with my clients are extremely important to me.

Thank you HOUZZ for this "Rave Reviews" award! Also, to all my clients out there that have cheered me on and written such great reviews, I thank you!
