“When we moved from a small Brooklyn apartment to a big house, we realized we not only didn't have any furniture, but we didn't know how to approach creating the living space we wanted. We were overwhelmed, and after several weekends dragging our two young kids through furniture stores without any luck, we knew we needed help. Neela saved us. She is very open and easy to talk to. By the end of our second meeting, I felt she understood and could articulate our style better than we could. Neela completely understands the needs of a family with young children, and showed us furniture and fabrics that both looked great and could stand up to our toddlers. She came up with brilliant solutions to some of the quirks of our old house, making seemingly unusable space wonderfully functional. She never ever pressured us on ANYTHING. And, of course, she did an absolutely beautiful job. Our house looks like a family who happens to have great taste lives here, rather than a house that has been "done". I couldn't be happier with both the process and the results. Neela is amazing!”

What people are saying

“I have worked with Neela now on two separate occasions to decorate and furnish our new home. While I am someone who enjoys design and decorating, I know I lack the time, knowledge, education, experience, vision, and talent to do so. This is where Neela has been extremely helpful. What I especially appreciate about Neela is that she takes into account my style and taste, can work with what we already have, includes me in the decision-making process, and pushes me just the right amount. Furthermore, when I have been a little unsure about how something might pull together, I have been extremely pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend working with Neela!"

“What impressed me most about Neela was her capacity to immediately understand my sense of style and the vision I had for my home. She exactly matched my taste in design and helped me choose the right furniture and colors that reflected the character I wanted to have in my home. Neela transformed my house to a home!”

What people are saying

“Neela helped my husband and I transform our hallway, dining room and living room into three beautiful and inviting spaces that are very true to our style. In doing so, she went above and beyond to fulfill our objective of combining old and new to create a warm and lovely entry to our home. Her wonderful energy and love for what she does make working with her a pleasure. We highly recommend Neela!”

What people are saying

“Neela is a talented and creative designer with a refreshingly low intimidation factor! I would hire her to work on every room in my house, if I could, but with every project we did tackle together, large or small, she seemed able to read my mind (or interpret my style) so quickly that working with her wasn’t only a real pleasure, but swift and easy, too. I was especially pleased with her fabric choices and the way she incorporated things I already owned into a design that made sense. She transformed my dining room with one perfectly chosen window treatment and helped me make sense of a challenging living room in a way that transformed the space.”

What people are saying

“Having never worked with an Interior Designer before, I didn't quite know what to expect. So, when I first met Neela, she asked me what I wanted to accomplish. She made suggestions from which to choose and we discussed the ones I liked and I took time to think about them. There were things I hadn't thought about, such as, lighting, colors, and accessories. She had contacts to do any job, unless I preferred using my own people. Any problems, Neela took care of and resolved immediately. That was really nice. In the end, I was delighted with my new office. I intend to start another project (my loft) with her, soon.”

What people are saying

“Before we started working with an interior designer, we knew we would want to benefit from her knowledge, experience, and taste, without abandoning our own tastes and certain items that are special to us. Working with Neela, who was recommended by someone we trust, we achieved that integration of her skill and boundless energy with our preferences to result in fantastic designs we enjoy every day.”

What people are saying

“We hired Neela to create a "beach themed bedroom" for our teenager. The challenges involved coming up with design options that would "grow" with our daughter as she moved from middle school through high school, be aesthetically pleasing to us, and also be fun and hip enough for a teenager. Neela rose to the occasion and came up with creative uses of color, accent items and space. She rearranged furniture placement, creating a more open feel, made the room "cool" through the use of accent items that could be updated if needed as our daughter got older, and added the fun element of dark ocean-blue blackboard paint on the back of the door to allow for individual teen expression. Neela was also able to keep our desires in mind, as she worked with our daughter, and helped "nudge" her decision making so that everyone was happy. We were very pleased with the end result.”
