When we first decided to build our dream home we honestly thought we could do it on our own. As we began to discuss lighting, bathroom designs and all the things that required us knowing how to pull everything together for our home, we quickly realized that it was going to be an overwhelming process for two individuals who had full-time jobs and barely enough time to shop for all the supplies needed. Not to mention that we were really building two homes in one a parent/child home – which was not a simple task. During one of our crazy weekends while shopping for bathroom tiles someone recommended we give Rose Ott a call because it seemed like we needed help. While we hesitated because we really wanted to do this on our own and had real concerns of finding a person who would not be overwhelming, we knew that if we wanted everything to be perfect and for things to start moving along we needed to get some help. In April 2007 we had our first meeting with Rose and we immediately hit it off. We found her to be professional, thoughtful and respectful of our ideas and concerns. She listened carefully before offering suggestions and from the onset she made sure she asked us what style we preferred, from traditional to transitional, to what kinds of colors we liked, to just overall look and feel. From the beginning she exhibited extraordinary creativity, a strong knowledge of products and services, from color schemes, painters, lighting specialist, lighting fixtures, tiles, kitchens, baths, you name it, to a network of contacts, everything we needed in an interior designer. Rose has lived through all of our ups and downs throughout the process and has been nothing but patient with us, which we have been extremely grateful for. She has not only provided us with advice on interior design, she has made recommendations, given us guidance and most of all her friendship throughout. She goes over and beyond the call of duty, from running to the house to check on things for us when we have not been able to or when we have had some concerns that just could not wait, to tracking down supplies- she has been there. She has been nothing but accommodating, extremely reliable, trustworthy and most of all honest. While our dream home is getting close to being done, the reality is that we hope Rose will be with us for sometime given how much we value and respect her opinion, her creativity, her style and her grace. She is by far one of the best in her field.
