Carly did an exceptional job when it came to helping us pick out finishes and interiors for our new home. She listened to us when it came to budget and ideas and was always willing to help us find something that we loved in our price range. I will always recommend Carly and will use her again on any future projects.

I worked with Carly through her E-Designer service and it was an excellent option to get a designer look on a budget. Carly took a lot of time to talk through my ideas for the space and came up with two options, which we ended up combining to get the perfect look. What impressed me most when I saw the design was that I could tell immediately that she had not only listened to what I said on our call, but took the time to review my Houzz and Pinterest boards and picked up on styles and items I liked. When we finalized the design, she sent me a personalized shopping list telling me how and what to order, quantity, sizes, everything. And, our living room could not look more beautiful. She was very respectful of our budget and mixed and matched some lower priced items to stay in our budget. She also had fantastic suggestions on where to splurge that I could never have come up with on my own. I would highly recommend Carly!

Our summer cottage was in serious need of a facelift. I had a wonderful experience working with Carly Callahan in the reconfiguring and renovation of it’s full kitchen. In the same house, we also worked together to redo 2 bathrooms in addition to the construction of a brand new master bathroom. Carly was very creative in thinking about how best to lay out the kitchen and bathrooms for maximum efficiency. I was impressed with her ideas and out of the box thinking, most of which we put in place. She was relentless at working out issues when they arose as they frequently do during renovations. I would describe her work style as extremely professional, practical and respectful. I am extremely happy with the outcome which is just what I wanted, a simple and highly functional yet elegant summer cottage. I will hire Callahan Interiors again for my next project because I love the outcome and I found her to be knowledgeable as well as fun to work with.
