Client Testimonials

Ellice Castle-12“Ellice is a pleasure to work with. Before our initial meeting, I sent her photos of my home as well as photos of homes and rooms I liked. With that limited information, she walked in to our meeting with spot-on color recommendations, as well as recommendations for furniture, decorative accents, and room layouts. While other designers I have worked with insist on incredibly high price-point items, I was surprised and impressed that her recommendations included many of my existing furniture and accent pieces along with new, reasonably priced, accessible items. I am thrilled with the result, and have received so many compliments on the work she did for me. I absolutely recommend Ellice, and plan to hire her for my future needs — the dining room and my daughter’s room are next!” -Natasha D.M. San Francisco, CA


“Ellice has now provided color consultation for two of our homes. She was able to suggest colors that I never would have come up with myself and yet totally fit our home’s personality. All our furniture and art seem to be more cohesive with the walls painted. She is great at suggesting colors that provide each room a distinct feel, yet all flow together. Each time she has also provided ideas for how to elevate the looks even more – a colorful powder room, or updated fireplace – and those pieces always end up being my favorite part of the house.” -CarOline C. San Francisco, CA


“We loved Ellice’s approach and ability to work within any constraints we had to help Dyn look the way it does. Super easy going, takes feedback, independent, and delivers great work. Thanks Ellice!” -Jeremy Hitchcock, CEO, Dyn, Inc., Manchester, NH


“Ellice helped take our style and make it more refined. I credit the warm, inviting feel of our home to her design input. I couldn’t have done it without her.” -C. Conway Lafayette, CA


I hired Ellice as my floral and event designer for two of my Son’s garden style weddings. It was a comfort knowing she was tending to all the details from the tent rental, suggestions for dinnerware and table linens, to making sure things were coordinated down to the last minute. Her very personal approach, excellent taste and the assurance that she follows through on everything promised makes her a pleasure to keep working with. We have wedding number three already booked for next summer! I highly recommend her!” -Margie M. Amherst, NH


“Ellice is a true professional and visionary for all things design. Without even stepping into my home, she did an entire home virtual color consultation and captured the look and feel I was aiming for. With 100s of unorganized photos and my “oh that’s cool” Pinterest board for some direction she pulled together a palette which will transform my beige blah to gorgeous grays. The hints of blue, green and yes even a little beige I will be able to use all of my current decor/furniture but allow me to go a little crazy at Homegoods. Don’t think or question just say yes, Ellice is an artist!!!” -Beth L. Long Island, NY


“Ellice has worked for me as an associate designer and decorative painter. She is highly skilled and has a very sophisticated eye for design and detail. I can highly recommend her skills.” -Lisa Teague, Principal Designer, Lisa Teague Studios, Portsmouth, NH


“Ellice is a professional perfectionist.  Her gift extends far beyond colors and shapes. She has the ability to design from our shoes which made the process totally stress free. Ellice stayed under budget and delivered a superior product within the timeframe allotted.  We are absolutely going to use her again. It was great working with you Ellice – you’re really talented!” -Bob Cote, CEO, SubItUp, Manchester, NH
