Availing of the talents of Carolann has been a delight. I have done so on a number of occasions.
Her talents are impressive – a sense of the possibilities for space, colour and décor, furnishings and fittings. However, her greatest attribute is her warmth, approachability, respectfulness and engaging presence. These are impressive qualities as it can be daunting to reveal one’s less-than-impressive property to someone with such a perceptive eye. I particularly valued her sensitivity.
Carolann possesses great confidence in her visions for a redesigned/redecorated space but is not dogmatic about her views. She can accommodate the wishes of her client in a gentle honouring way. Her proposals/suggestions for change are tendered in a way that co-opts the house-owner as ultimate decision maker. Choices/options are explored, the house-owner decides .Her purpose is not to impress with her talents (though, she does just that) but to offer those talents as a form of gift to her clients.
I have trusted her advice, even when, at times, I could not fully visualise the final outcome, and have not been disappointed. Carolann’s gift to me is the on-going satisfaction I gain from living in a home influenced by her creativity.
And, an additional surprise; when you contact Carolann, you get more than you expected. You get a link to many tradesmen of genuine merit who have earned her trust.John Culhane - Glanmire, Co. Cork
I used Carolann and her team to renovate my living room , kids den , hall, stairs and landing. She is very creative and came up with amazing ideas. Carolann is very easy to deal with and nothing seems to be a problem. We used her team of builders, carpenters and painters and found them all excellent. Her project manager, Dave took all the stress out of the process for us and kept us informed at all times of when and what was happening. Carolann supplied custom made sofas, cushions and curtains , rugs and they certainly have the wow factor. It was a stress-free process for me! I'm absolutely thrilled with the end results, it exceeded all our expectations. My kids love the rooms, they are super proud to show our friends and family around. We are so happy with the finished rooms-showhouse standards! I would highly recommend Carolann and her team.Bernie O'Connell - Watercrosshill, Co. Cork
I found CDC interiors extremely helpful when kitting out my new apartment. Carolann took it all on board - she advised and selected my furniture, curtains, blinds, carpets, wooden floors, and paint colours and even down to the accessories - all the things a guy like me needs to be advised on! Fantastic job!David Kelleher - Cork City
Carolann came highly recommended to us. We first met her on site of our new house and from there Carolann took charge of sourcing and selecting all the finishes for us.Catherine and Ken Lynch - Co. Waterford
She advised on selection of flooring, joinery, door handles, furniture, colourschemes and soft furnishings throughout. She also helped us with the layout and selection of kitchen furniture and bathroom fittings and fixtures. She did sketches of curtain design for our windows which helped us enormously to visualise the finished look.
We were also made very welcome when we visited her Studio where we selected our fabrics from her library of interior books, while enjoying a nice coffee, very impressive.
We are extremely pleased with our finished home and with the expertise help and advice Carolann gave us, and now we too can highly recommend Carolann of CDC Interiors and Renovations and her team.
We met Carolann for the first time at her studio and we just clicked. She listened, offered advice and showed us many samples from her large library of books of soft furnishings. We left feeling very optimistic that we had firstly found the right person for the job in hand. Carolann and her team accommodate what you need and want and act accordingly. We love our finished home thanks to them and they have been a dream to work with. They took the stress out of everything for us.Mary and Frank - Co. Tipperary
Interiors...not mine or my partners area of expertise, so we bought Carolann and her team on board. It was a relief to be able to go to work knowing that all the work was going to be done thoroughly and professionally while you are away. They certainly took the hassle out of home renovations and it was great having just one point of contact who shared the same vision as we did for the finished result. Carolann is an exceptional interior designer with amazing style and taste. Carolann calm, approachable nature, enthusiasm and the quality of their tradespeople are second to none. Dave the project manager, attention to detail throughout the project has been ingenious. The whole renovation team are friendly and positive attitude which made the staff as CDC Interiors and Renovations a pleasure to work and have in our home which resulted in a tremendous transformation with beautiful, crisp and unique finishes in our home that are frequently commented upon. The results were absolutely fantastic. Thank you. I will use Carolann of CDC Interiors and renovations team again in the future on phase 2 of our renovations plans and in the meantime I am always checking out their news on Facebook to see whats new with them. THANK YOU Carolann and Dave.Joan and John Dennehy - Co. Kerry
