Testimonials

Tristan is great at her craft and running a customer-centered business. She answered all my questions well within a few hours of me asking from the moment she contacted me through Thumbtack til after the staging was complete. She made time in her schedule to meet us at our newly vacated rental property and was able to give us tips of where to focus our limited resources on getting our home the best it can be. I fully recommend her services.

Tristan is my hero! I needed a home staged asap and she answered the call promptly. This took extra perseverance, flexibility and dedication. I really appreciate her extra effort to get the job done. And what a great job she did! The home look beautiful, just in time for the photographer to take photos for the listing. The sellers were pleased with the results and so am I! I will definitely be calling her again.

Tristan came to our house within 3 hours of calling. We are putting our home on the market. She new exactly what our empty home needed to look homey. She had it complete within a day and a half. Our realtor was very impressed. As an added benefit she will be there for the Photos that will go into the MLS. She wants her work to look as perfect as it is.

Tristan was awesome to work with! She is so friendly and she's an extremely talented designer/decorator. I am clueless when it comes to design and she was such an amazing resource in helping us update the look of our house. She helped us pick paint colors and carpet. She also helped us with the layout of furniture in our home and helped us when selecting pieces to purchase. Finally, she helped us find a cost effective way of updating our bathrooms. I'm thrilled with how everything turned out!

We were so lucky to have found Tristan on extremely short notice to stage our home before we listed it for sale. She responded promptly to all my emails, was very flexible with what we wanted done and was able to provide us with the services we needed for the budget we had. Most importantly, Tristan had a wonderful eye for furniture placement and practical decorating sense for staging purposes. We wanted to use our own furniture and belongings with only minimal supplementing of staging furniture/accessories (which she is able to provide). She came over and walked us through every room of our house and helped us place and decorate down to the very last detail. She was fun and easy to work with and made the whole process very enjoyable. Needless to say, our house sold less than a week later and we heard that there were multiple groups that asked who our stager was during the Open House. I am looking forward to using her again, this time for her interior design skills in our next home!

As you can see from her portfolio, she has a knack for making a house feel like a home. Hospitality through design says it all...whenever I have the opportunity to refer a client to Tristan, I do. I know that she will personally make sure that each client is completely taken care of from a relational standpoint, a design standpoint, and a financial standpoint (most of my clients are looking sell their homes and get the most return on their investment)...and she expertly guides clients through their options in an engaging way.

I've seen her do everything from full remodels to staging and color consultations - each with a specific purpose to bring the most out of a space.

Indispensable and highly recommended! Thank you Tristan!

Tristan is extremely talented. Not only is her design sense spot on, but she is also able to make the process happen smoothly and quickly. While she is a bit expensive, she's worth every penny!

Tristan Gary is my choice for a compassionate, skilled designer, with a great working knowledge of building materials and specifications.

Tristan has a knack for finding the best of the best, high quality finishes, all while having respect for her clients tastes and preferences (as well as budgets).

I have recommended Tristan to my own customers who think they may benefit from interior design services for their projects, and she is always well received and well loved. Tristan is a pleasure to work with.

Tristan was very professional from the very beginning. She listened to you needs and followed through. Tristan added very good insight for the project. She was very easy to work with, knew our budget and helped us get the best products for the money. We are not quite done yet so I will add my final comments later.

- Jody B. in Renton, WA

I had a new home listing that needed a designer's eye to bring everything together. Tristan was extremely valuable in seeing past the clutter...to the potential of what the home could be. After several days of hard work, she made it happen and the result was a warm and inviting space...that received outstanding reviews at the Open House the following weekend!

We just moved into an older home with blah, chalky, flat walls. I just needed someone with a professional eye to help pick out a paint color that would add some depth and richness to the walls. After Tristan toured the house, we sat down and chatted a little bit then she went directly to a color she had in mind. It was perfect. She recommended a painter and we hired him the next week. The painter did a great job and Tristan couldn't have selected a better color. Our walls look great.

Tristan is a talented, highly skilled, reliable designer with a flawless eye. She really listens to her clients, and creates designs that are truly exceptional. She designed a stunning fireplace surround for us, chose gorgeous colors for our living room as well as our home's exterior. Even my 15 yr old son's friends were compelled to comment on how "awesome" our fireplace looked. We hired Tristan again to design our upcoming kitchen remodel, and I'm sure that the results will be fabulous.
