We have worked with Ana in our Victorian on big and small projects. She helped transform a very small and dated bathroom to an incredible space, that actually feels bigger. What could have been a daunting process, went as smoothly as possible. We could not be more thrilled with our new bathroom!
Ana is a joy to work with, and a real professional. On smaller projects, she works to create great rooms that feel fresh and have flow with the rest of the house. Ana listens to your needs and style, and also adds her professional eye and resources, for a great result! She works with your budget, is a positive person, sweats the details, and really wants you to be happy with the final look. She is also incredibly patient with my never ending questions and obsessing! She makes decorating and renovating a wonderful and fun process. I highly recommend Ana of Ana Vera Designs!
Ana was so helpful to me in several ways - she listened to what we wanted and then gave her opinion when we showed her our choices, which helped me eliminate and choose. We literally could not be happier with our island top and I feel so grateful that she helped me through my indecisiveness and lack of trust in myself! What I valued most was that I could share my ideas with her and from the design perspective she offered her professional opinion. Ana made the awesome recommendation for tile/slate in the mudroom as opposed to the wood, which was brilliant! I really appreciated how hands on she was and most importantly, I knew I could always "Ask Ana". She helped me trust myself, make choices, see possibilities and take risks! Thank you Ana!
I cannot overstate how helpful, professional and kind Ana was in supporting our kitchen renovation. She guided me towards choices that resonated with my own aesthetic, but that helped me avoid making style mistakes that I know I would have regretted.
Ana saved me time, sending me ideas and questions that I could respond to on my own time and then condensing the time we had in showrooms to focus on things she knew I'd like.Ana also saved me money, both in terms of spending wisely and in terms of dollars for specific items - I found a $10K countertop; Ana found me one that I liked better that cost less than 1/2 of that.
Finally, Ana was kind and patient. During this rather intensely busy time in my life, my mother got fairly seriously ill. I was sometimes distracted or overly worried; her positive energy about the project and life in general were just a pleasure to be around. I really cannot say enough good things about Ana's work. My kitchen and bathroom look AMAZING, my budget is fine and I was able to take care of my work, children and mother all while doing this reno.
