Client experience is at the heart of all we do. We’re so pleased to share with you praise from our previous happy clients who worked with us on their Cleveland interior design projects.
“Ingrid has been fabulous to work with. After completing her first job for me (decorating my husband's home office), I immediately hired her for help with two more rooms, and potentially a third. She is energetic, happy, and good with follow-up and follow-through. She has been a joy to work with and I would definitely recommend her.”
“Ingrid worked with me on a huge remodel of our home. She was so easy to work with and found ways to please both my husband and me which isn't easy! She is great with so many things but what stands out the most is her eye for colors and fabrics.”
“Ingrid Porter assisted my husband and I on two recent projects — a basement remodel and master bedroom/bathroom project. Ingrid did an exceptional job and took the time to get a real sense of what we were trying to achieve. Her ideas and color suggestions were perfect! We are extremely pleased with the finished projects. One of the unexpected benefits of using Ingrid was that she made the process exciting. We highly recommend Ingrid Porter Interiors for your next home remodeling project!”
“Ingrid is not only nice, but easy to work with! She listens to your needs and makes sure that your design voice is heard. I would definitely hire her again!”
“Ingrid helped me pick paint colors for my entire house when I was very pregnant and very indecisive! From my home office to the new nursery upstairs, she coordinated colors to flow between 13 rooms! I never would have been able to complete this task before the baby arrived if it wasn’t for Ingrid. She did an amazing job and I would hire her again for future home projects. Crossing my fingers on a kitchen reno!”
“I had worked on a home feature alongside Ingrid with her as a stylist. Having a short amount of time to shoot required quick thinking with a creative resolution, and Ingrid came through on all accounts. Her ability to pull a room together seems to come instinctively, along with a talent for creating harmonious color relationships and interesting arrangements. Her work certainly reflects a love for what she does.
Ingrid was a sheer pleasure to work with as she has a wonderful personality, is open to others' opinions and views, yet is professional and creative. I look forward to any future projects that we may share, and highly recommend her services to anyone.”
“Ingrid is full of innovative ideas, has always been easy to work with and can adapt her services to many different design styles.
Her communication, collaboration and design expertise made the entire process run smoothly. We will continue to utilize and recommend her for all future interior design projects.”
“[Ingrid] did an amazing job helping us select colors, finishes, and stains. She didn't just pick, she also educated us on why things were chosen and how to mix things up.
She listened to our needs, our styles and brought my husband and I together since our styles are complete opposite.”
“Over a five-year period, Ingrid has done many major renovation projects for me including my basement, master bedroom, master bath and kitchen. She is always respectful of my budget and in many cases has made recommendations to utilize existing structures and furniture to keep costs down.
In redoing the kitchen, she was able to give me the space I wanted without moving plumbing and electric. My master bath was a "gut" and Ingrid reconfigured the space to give us a huge shower. It's a much more efficient use of space.”
"I was enjoying my home last evening and I thought of you and how you helped me craft my vision and filled in the gaps. Thank you for making it a space that feels like home."
"We hired Ingrid to help us with an addition and kitchen remodel. She was with us from the very beginning and met with the architect and contractors to insure that our ideas were well planned from the beginning. She had some great ideas for the space and came up with designs that we never would have thought of ourselves.
When it came to decorate the spaces, Ingrid was very patient with me. I am the type of person who needs to see all of the options before making a decision. Most of the time, I selected what she suggested. On the few occasions that I found something on my own, she was very enthusiastic and gave me her best advice on how to incorporate it into the project. Overall, the results were beautiful. I would highly recommend Ingrid.”
"We had a great experience working with Ingrid. We worked with her for a kitchen, dining and home office remodel. The first time we met with Ingrid we realized how crucial her professional guidance would be with all the decisions that would need to be made from the practical to the decorative.
From planning the floor layouts to choosing paint, stain, tiles, and faucets, she made sure it was all perfect. All before we even thought about the furniture, fabric and lighting. Her suggestions were stylish and fresh which we would not have come up with on our own. Ingrid also has an excellent relationship with the community, vendors and contractors which was helpful for the project to run smoothly. In addition, she was easy and fun to work with. We were thrilled with the final result."

“Ingrid was wonderful to work with. She is very creative and easy to be around. She gives great ideas with the understanding of what her clients taste is. I had Ingrid help design a remodel bathroom. It is beautiful, and I get lots of compliments on the design.”
“Ingrid takes the time to understand your style and what is important to you. She has the ability to extract your ideas (which, in my case, were sometimes disparate) and pull them together into your design dream. Ingrid is also very personable and was a pleasure to partner with on our project.”
“We loved working with Ingrid. She helped us from start to finish with the design and finishes for our new home, all as well as fixtures and furniture. Ingrid will listen, incorporate your ideas, and you will love the result. We would highly recommend Ingrid for your next project.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Ingrid on several occasions. Ingrid is very talented and never disappoints. I trust her with making the decisions and helping me to purchase furnishings for my home.”
“Ingrid was involved in all aspects of a major remodeling of our family room as well as updating the rest of the first floor of our home. She was tremendously helpful in selecting the design, materials and colors throughout the first floor and when the redesign was complete, determined the placement of the artwork and other accent pieces. She was professional and exhibited excellent design knowledge while guiding us through this project. It was a pleasure to work with Ingrid.”

"I am a person who knows what she wants and has limited time. Ingrid listened and accurately saw and implemented my vision on several projects over the years. She offered options that made my space better than I dreamed...she understood my style, taste and budget and offered me proper selection to make the process easier, less stressful and timely.
My home is completely transformed for the better and now we can never leave! I love it! Thanks to Ingrid!”
“Working with Ingrid Porter was wonderful !! She really listened to us and understood our needs and budget. She has a fabulous sense of both color and function. I never would have thought to layout our kitchen the way she did! She and the contractor worked great together too.
I think of her often as I sit in my new, beautiful kitchen and look out the lovely window.”
“The best part about working with Ingrid was that she made our home beautiful and the remodeling process enjoyable! We hired Ingrid to help us with remodeling our kitchen, bathrooms, fireplace, replace light fixtures and replace carpeting.
Ingrid's approach to our project was best seen when the project was finished, we could have never pulled together everything. She guided us in the right direction while listening to us. She responded quickly to any unexpected questions. It was a pleasure working with her.”
"Ingrid recently helped us design and remodel our kitchen. She helped us find a great general contractor to do the construction work and then led us through the process of choosing our materials, fixtures and furniture. She is the consummate professional and was very patient and kind while we vacillated in our decision-making. We love how the kitchen turned out.”
"I am currently renovating a century home that was in dire need of repair and upgrades and I was hesitant to use a designer since I enjoy that aspect of home repair but working with Ingrid has been the perfect balance of taking an idea I have had and making it come to life and implementing ideas I never would have thought of. She does a great job of staying in budget and offering different solutions if something comes in higher than expected in the quoting process. She has handled all the interaction with the contractors and architect so my renovation process has remained stress-free. If a problem arose during renovation (which in a century home there is always one), she worked with the contractor to develop a solution and keep the renovation moving which was especially helpful due to my work travel schedule.
I wanted to do my renovation in stages and she helped the architect and contractor determine how to split the project into phases that could fit into my budget. I can't recommend Ingrid enough to anyone who asks me on how I have managed to deal with a complete home remodel."
