“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.”
"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!”
“[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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
"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."
"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.”
"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.”
"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."
"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."
