Thank you again for meeting with us. We really appreciate your expertise and how efficient you were. Glad you jumped right in and started moving things around. And how nice to have a detailed plan to work from. We liked how you incorporated the things we already have into the plan. We’ve never done anything like this before. It was fun.

This just popped up on my Facebook Page from 2014 (this is 2019). This is what was posted by the client:
Diane was truly amazing to work with! She cam(e) in and transformed a hodge podge family room into this warm comfortable place that my family loves and something I am proud of!
Not only does she use your existing furniture and Art Deco(r), she sits down with u and shows u additional pieces can get when your time and budget allows! I have taken my suggestion sheet we worked together into every decorative store along with my tape measure to find the prices that I need! I love I could finish off my rooms of my new home with my own time because I had the tools to know what to get!
Give her 6 hours and suggestions and watch out! U will have the home of your dreams!! I look forward to working with her in the future!!
Thanks Diane!! From the red lamp in gahanna (Jill Linday Earnheart)
Thank you so much for today!!!! I had a blast. I feel like I have a plan. What I like most is that you really listened to what I wanted/needed and worked that all into the plan. Its so manageable and not overwhelming. What makes me feel so comfortable is that even if we move in the next couple of years, I won't have invested a fortune but that everything will (hopefully) work in another home. I can't wait to get it all and have you back over to help me with the installation. - Cindy Neighbor, Westerville (Ohio)
Hiring Ready, Set, Design is the best decision I have ever made in home decorating! In the past, I had listened to furniture store "designers," spent untold amounts on custom furniture that I hated when it arrived, and ultimately gave up on what to do with what I had. I hated my house and was out thousands of dollars. Well, Diane solved all of that. She used everything I had in new ways and created rooms that my family is proud of and that we love to be in. Plus, she was so much fun to work with! It doesn't get much better than this. Highly, highly recommended! Love everything she did! Lee Hogan Upper Arlington
"I really thought the furniture descriptions and layouts were the most beneficial to me. We were overwhelmed with the process of filling a large room. After this consultation we feel much more comfortable." Mary Chomic, Galena
"Talking through the layout and room uses and my needs were very helpful to me. I can't wait to start even thought I will have to wait a bit. What is great, I now have an easy to follow plan of action. You are exactly what I expected and wanted." Libby Wetherholt, Columbus

"You made a functioning room become a cozy area that my husband and I will enjoy"
Cynthia Sheahan, Gahanna
Dear Diane, Thank you so much for helping me with my home. It's been a few years, but I finally made all the changes and it looks just wonderful. However, my husband just got transferred and now we're moving! Our house was sold to the 3rd person who came through. All buying agents raved about the decorating and said the house was staged perfectly (and I made sure I gave you all the credit!). So, many thanks to you Email from Kim Hough

"I feel I have a direction to go. Before I didn't know what to start with - I feel excited to get started." Ellen Joseph, Westerville
"The room is very difficult to place furniture. Diane's ideas were functional and didn't break the bank (frugal)." Jill Martin, Powell
"Diane helped me to pull together all the things I have collected and loved, but didn't know how they should go together. WOW! A new home full of old comforting belongings." Carol Klochak, Hilliard
"Diane spends a lot of time working with clients to incorporate their style of living in her suggestions. But she's also quick in envisioning a cohesive plan for each room and presenting a detailed plain of her suggestions. I like that she comes in and actually starts moving things around (even heavy furniture) to see and demonstrate what the finished look will be. She provides concrete suggestions for colors and sizes to the client, too, rather than vague, open-ended ideas." Jenny Ventura, Powell
