What clients are saying about Spectacular Spaces…

After moving from the northeast to Florida, we were desperate to make our new retirement home comfortable yet stylish. We had already purchased all of our furniture, but hit a roadblock when it came to decorating it. So we thought it might be time to call in a professional. Having never worked with an interior designer before, we were a little intimidated by the idea. But Wrenda was so easy to work with, and provided the ideas and inspiration that we needed to move forward. She took time to understand our tastes, which don’t always match, and the concepts we wanted to achieve. The end result is a home that we absolutely love. Thanks for all of your help and thoughtful advice, Wrenda!

Refreshing and relaxing was the atmosphere I envisioned when I remodeled my kitchen and lanai. Wrenda was able to convey all of this and more in my home. Since living most of my time in the north, I was unable to spend weeks in Florida while construction was taking place. I hired Wrenda to manage the project and to help in selecting the tile, granite, paint colors, fabric and much more when I was in town. She was consistently in touch with me by phone or email which kept me in the loop as things were being done. I had total confidence in her decisions and ideas. She’s a “down to earth” person and listens to your ideas and pulls it all together for a great look.

We called Wrenda to help us choose paint colors for a house we had just moved into. We were very nervous about picking out paint colors for every room and wanted to make sure everything “flowed” seamlessly. Wrenda was fabulous in showing us a lot of different options and she made it seem so easy!! She came into our home to get a feel of what we wanted and to see what would work throughout our home. She was always very prompt, professional and we are extremely satisfied with her suggestions. We have had all the painting done and we absolutely love all the paint choices. We would highly recommend Spectacular Spaces to even the most discriminating client. We will definitely be calling Spectacular Spaces again for all of our decorating needs.

I want to thank you for your fabulous, professional ideas for my condo. I now have an entirely different “home of my own” after my divorce and relocation to the Fort Myers area. I was feeling overwhelmed with all the decisions needed for transforming my furnishings from the “old house” and trying to make the condo my own. You saved me money when upgrading the kitchen and master bath. You also took away the stress and turned it into a fun girls day out shopping! I get to take all the credit for the makeover, and my “old stuff” looks fresh and new to even me!” I am telling all my friends about your service and low fee. The best part is telling them I now have a good friend: you.

Our new home purchase in southwest Florida was exciting but intimidating…starting with large empty beige rooms. Wrenda worked with us on a step by step budget-conscious plan to make our house a professionally decorated showplace. She assisted with the shopping, furniture placement and color coordination. The process was painless and the results: Spectacular.

We were looking for a change in the look of our Florida home and we knew that our extensive art collection was not being featured in the best way, so we called Spectacular Spaces to help. The result: new paint colors for our living room, complete redesign of the arrangement of our art collection. Wrenda helped us sort through our art and accessories, grouped pieces creatively and arranged them so each piece is shown it its best light. The result: the look of art gallery. We also selected paint colors to show off our new kitchen renovation and for the exterior of our house. Result: Our home has a designer look at an affordable price.

I would have never been able to turn the useless space at the end of my living room into a cozy TV room without the fabulous help of Wrenda Goodwyn of Spectacular Spaces. Although I understood the elements of design, space and proportion, as a nationally-accredited flower show and horticulture judge, she was able to connect my living room and TV areas together into a space that flows and is now great for entertaining. You were worth every penny and I am so happy with what we did.

We originally called Wrenda to help us with our color (paint) selection and what value she provided to us. She really knows color! And, she knows how to pair colors for optimal impact. What I liked best about Wrenda is that she first came to our home to get a feeling for the setting and for our personalities. Not only did she help on color, but she made suggestions on accessories and where to purchase them. I was so pleased with our initial consultation, I asked Wrenda to help me shop for a sofa.

The results of our new living space are remarkable. I would use Wrenda’s professional services again, and have recommended her to others. The value that Wrenda provided helped us avoid a costly mistake.

Now that our “project” is near complete Connie and I would like to say a big THANK YOU! You did what you promised: you helped us to transform our newly purchased house into a beautiful home. We liked our house very much but now we love our home. The combination of your exquisite taste and your sensitivity to our ideas made us feel very comfortable working with you; we just couldn’t wait to receive your suggestions and recommendations and we were looking forward to our shopping trips with impatient excitement and anticipation. You always exceeded our expectation. When we are now looking at our (dare say!) beautiful home it is impossible tell what were our original ideas and we adopted form your subtle recommendations (or not so subtle “I don’t think so”?!). It was a great learning experience for us into the world of”spectacular spaces” and the end result is a home that we no doubt will enjoy every minute for the years to come.

Jack and I are just loving our new look! We took your advice and found two wonderful chairs to replace the sofa. You were right that two sofas were too much and blocked our view of our spacious lanai and pool. We also took your much needed advice and added color to the kitchen and dining room which pulled the three rooms (including the living room) together. We appreciate that the redo of our rooms did not cost us a fortune. It is great to be able to use our much loved art pieces in different areas and yet have a completely new look. We are loving it!! Thank you, again.

Wrenda’s eye for detail and ability to locate surprising finds for her clients is stellar. It’s also because she’s incredibly warm and approachable. In that “how can I be so comfortable talking to someone I just heard about yesterday?” way. I wish she lived closer. Or that I lived in southwest Florida. Then we could drive to funky, cool, off-the-beaten-path shops and markets and buy glorious furniture and accessories that would transform my home into a decorated dream house. Sometimes clients are destined to become your friends.

Wrenda Goodwyn is a true design professional! We completed construction of our custom, storm fortified, LEED certifiedgreen home in March 2009. During construction,Wrenda was instrumental in many of our crucial design choices such as cabinetry, counter top colors and of course, the dreaded paint color selection! She helped incorporate our contemporary, yet simple style with natural elements. After the home was completed, she helped with furniture placement, artwork andaccessories. What a difference small changes can make! We cannot thank Wrenda enough for her talents and will surely recommend her to anyone desiring anything from a room makeover to the intricate design choices of a new construction dream home like ours!

The colors you selected for our office are just perfect! I love the linen base color: you were absolutely right-it has more color than I expected. The accent walls are so fun, and the reception area cabinets and granite are very, very cool. Thanks for all of your help and great advice.
