Great service

I very much enjoyed working with Carol. She had excellent ideas, considered the cost of the products and followed through on everything. I was not in the city when the remodeling was done and Carol handled it without my having to get involved which made it easy as I work full time. Everything was done on a timely basis. Our guests highly compliment the look and most important, it is modern yet comfortable. Carol listened to our wants and followed through with the ideas. We are already moving on to the second phase.

– D. McKinnon

extremely talent

I own a tile showroom in Palm Desert and have worked with Carol at Duende Designs, Inc. for over 12 years and every job has been a pleasure.  Carol is extremely talented and confident and listens to her clients. She’s open and honest and gets the job done -never any drama.  So much fun working with her!

– B. Taylor

beyond the beyond

I can’t say enough about Carol!!! The fact that this is the third time I have used her, over a period of “thirty” years, should really say it all…before I mention the fact that she is professional beyond the beyond, I must say that she is purely and simply, easy to work with…she has knowledge of ALL aspects of a design project, but that speaks to her years in the business…she is respectful of other opinions, but really knows her stuff, so keep that in mind…hopefully I will be around long enough to use her, yet again, on another project…Brava to Ms. Carol!!!!!

– R. Diniz

” I’m so glad that I selected Carol as the designer for my project, she’s made things so easy. I love her ideas! “
