  • New Canaan Den

    Cathy,

    The room is Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!  I marvel at how you can look at what was a non-descript closet and have the vision to weave the various components together to create such a space.  Love it all.

  • A Beautifully Transformed Bedroom

    Dear Cathy,

    Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you did in transforming my bedroom into the beautiful space it has become.  Your attention to detail and complete organization made my life so easy during the entire process.  That said, you asked for my input every step of the way and I never felt that the design ever lost sight of my tastes or personality.  The entire process from start to finish was both efficient and thorough.

    The bedroom looks so complete: everything coordinates in a way I could not have even tried to orchestrate on my own.  The room looks so sophisticated and polished, but feels comfortable and livable.  I couldn’t have asked for an easier process or better outcome in redesigning my bedroom, and for that, I can’t thank you enough.  I have been showing off the room to everyone who comes to the house, and everyone’s response is the same as mine- the room looks absolutely beautiful, and feels so me.  What more could I ask for?

    Thanks for everything, Cathy!

  • New Boca Raton Home

    Dear Cathy,

    I would like to thank you for your expertise, patience, and hard work in designing my new Boca Raton home! You are amazing and my house now shimmers with style because of you!

    I also wanted you to know that throughout the extensive renovation of my Florida home, I found you to always be thoughtful and respectful of my ideas and concerns while asking me pertinent questions and listening carefully before offering your own suggestions. I knew when I hired you that your biggest challenge would be incorporating my extensive contemporary art collection into a warm and inviting home atmosphere. Yet, I could never have expected the incredible vision you presented in solving this mandate. I must admit that the end results are greater than I could ever have imagined! Additionally, you are an excellent communicator and are totally dependable in your follow-through. You are both creative and extremely organized which is an unusual, but valuable combination. Your interior design passion has even influenced me to become interested in decorating, something I never thought possible.

    In summary, my home, a result of your efforts, now feels cohesive and reflective of my “modern” taste and lifestyle. I would recommend you for any interior design work without hesitation. Again, thank you for making my home a magical and a visual treat. I will be calling you soon for my next project. Best Regards, Nancy Kaye Boca Raton, Florida

  • Luxurious Country Retreat

    Dear Cathy,

    Thank you for all your hard work on our house. You have transformed an outdated 1980′s home into a luxurious country retreat. The decor at five star resorts do not hold a candle to what you have designed for our home. We love your use of color, pattern and texture. Your eye for details is amazing; your commitment to perfection is inspiring. Our only regret is that we didn’t find you earlier! We will forever cherish each piece of furniture you picked out for our home.

    Yours truly,

    John Brady and Stephanie Tran

  • Contemporary Home

    Dear Cathy,

    It has been six months since we started with you on the renovation and interior design of our home. We are now done and wanted you to know that we are thrilled with all that you and your team did to transform our 1963 beach house into a beautiful contemporary home.

    We just hosted our first get-together to celebrate the completion of our remodel. We expected people to gather in the living room or the sunroom, but once they saw the new kitchen and dining room—they just wanted to stay there! The warm colors and glass tile you chose, combined with the open design that your team created for us, made it such an inviting and welcoming space that no one wanted to leave!

    We truly enjoyed the renovation/interior design experience and we know how lucky we are to have worked with you. We never felt as lost as the day we walked into the tile store alone and looked around at the many options. However, once you agreed to help, everything came together and we ended up with the home of our dreams.

    Thank you for your wisdom, counseling, creativity, and patience. We will, of course, sing your praises to anyone and everyone we can—so never hesitate to have someone call for a referral, recommendation, etc.

    Have a great fall and we hope to see you soon.

    Sincerely,

    Canera and Michael Pagano

  • New York City Apartment

    Dear Cathy,

    I am sitting in my living room in my yellow “chaise” and admiring my beautiful living room and dining room. It makes me smile on the inside as well as the outside to sit here because my home looks so beautiful! I simply love coming home to it! Thank you for making me buy the “fern” prints. You were right. They are very special. And thank you for encouraging me to buy the antique sconces. They are just beautiful!

    Many, many thanks for doing such a great interior decorating job on my apartment. Your sense of color and mixing of patterns make this apartment incredibly warm and inviting. I simply love it!

    I would be honored if you would now entertain the thought of decorating my country home.

    Many thanks,

  • HGTV Designers’ Challenge Testimonial #2

    Thank you for transforming our space from an eyesore to a showpiece!

    Our original kitchen, laundry room and bathroom was circa 1968: mustard countertops, chocolate brown appliances, linoleum flooring, dark pine cabinetry and matching paneling. A peninsula counter split the space in two and the washer and dryer were located between the bathroom and basement door – all made for awful traffic flow. With no mudroom, all shoes, coats and backpacks were left on the kitchen floor.

    We are a young family and entertain alot, and the heart of our home was in desperate need of renovation.

    We met Cathy Glass thanks to HGTV’s Designers’ Challenge but chose to work with Cathy and Jeffrey because of their design and building expertise plus their commitment to a detailed and original space.

    We had seen many kitchens featured on TV, in magazines and in showrooms. We knew what we liked, but no particular look was us. We wanted color and personality, and so instead of clippings, we referred Cathy to an artist that appealed to us. Cathy took our favorite work, a vibrantly-colored print, and from it created a palette of stone, fabrics, wood and paint, highlighted by silver accents, that works beautifully throughout four rooms. She further personalized the space with one-of-a-kind artwork – framed infant shirts from our children and a rendering of our home on a mirror frame – two of many touches that truly make the space ours.

    Any renovation is an enormous, and stressful, undertaking. But Cathy’s team efforts, on a daily basis, impressed us. Every work day began with the crew starting ontime and leaving the work space clean at days end. If we had questions, and there were many, Cathy answered them promptly. The quality and installation of the cabinetry, flooring, backsplash and countertops was exceptional.

    Most importantly, Cathy Glass Design, has improved the traffic flow exponentially.

    Family and friends positive comments are great, but to live in the new space is to love it.

    Thank you.

  • HGTV Designers’ Challenge Testimonial #1

    Dear Cathy,

    I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you again for all of your hard work and exemplary design on the Schneidman kitchen project, for the HGTV show Designers’ Challenge.

    It’s been a real pleasure working with Cathy from the initial stages, all the way through to the end of the project. Your years of experience and dedication were instrumental in bringing this project in efficiently and on time. I truly believe that your being an interior designer with design/build experience, provided a one-stop shopping aspect to the project that was beneficial to me by meeting our strict production deadlines, as well as to the client by not displacing a young family for inordinate amounts of time while construction decisions were being made.

    Cathy, in the end, the proof, as they say, was in the pudding. To walk in and see how you had taken an outdated, inefficient space and turned it into a stunning, modern-day kitchen, all while maintaining the integrity of the home, yet addressing the needs and wants of the Schneidman family was simply amazing. Your attention to detail and artistic touches resulted in a kitchen that I’m sure will thrill our viewers and bring a sense of pride and joy to the Schneidman family for years to come. Again Cathy, thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.

    Sincerely,
    Eric Mathis
