Testimonial 1

December 11, 2007

I have had the pleasure of working with Robin Boyce of Design Center West on two major projects. The first was a renovation/rejuvenation of our existing home. The end results far exceeded our expectations and when we made the decision to build a new home, we involved Robin from the very first meeting with the builder.

Robin’s professional knowledge, demeanor and fabulous sense of style were invaluable to us. We came to rely upon her judgment with regard to matters that went well beyond the scope of interior design. Building a home is an overwhelming project, but with Robin guiding us, we were able to make the multitude of decisions with far less stress and aggravation.

Robin Boyce is an invaluable source of information but most importantly, she is a wonderful, caring person whom both my husband and I now consider to be a close friend.

To All Future Customers of Robin Boyce and Design Center:

I have had the good fortune of working with Robin Boyce and her staff over the past 11 years and through three homes.

Originally, I worked with Robin to decorate a home that I owned in Hopkinton. She supplied me with wallpaper, window treatments and her good taste, as well as the vendors to complete the jobs.

Seven years ago, my husband and I decided to build a home in Sudbury. Neither of us had ever built before, nor did we understand the scope of the project. The first place I stopped after we found a lot was Robin’s Design Center. I hired her to work with us through the construction phase of the project, as well as to decorate and accessorize.

Robin accompanied me to all the various suppliers and crafts personnel. She helped the cabinetmaker design my kitchen and cabinetry designs. She hand drew my vanities, which he was able to fabricate. She traveled with me to the plumbing supplier, and, when we were unhappy with his service, negotiated great prices at a local supplier that I was able to use instead.

Robin supplied me with every inch of carpet in my home, and handled the installation through her vendor. She designed by hand each of the many, many window treatments in my home. We picked wallpapers and we selected faux paint finishes. She managed the installations and completion of both. We designed furniture and had it built and delivered. Again, Robin handled all the details.

On one occasion, wallpaper arrived and was damaged. When her wallpaper hanger brought the paper to her, she immediately called the supplier and used to her clout to have new paper printed as an exact color match to the original.

I am now in the process of decorating and renovating a beach house in Maine. Once again I have called on Robin to do what she does best: understand my wants and desires, respect my budget, and help me to design a place that looks and feels like my own.

I have worked with many service people in my life and career. There are few that compare in terms of professionalism and service ethic. The bonus is that you work with someone who has exceptional taste and the extraordinary ability to fulfill your decorating dreams and deliver a home you truly feel at home in.

Best wishes, and good luck designing your dream home/room,

Sheryl Schlackman

To Whom It May Concern:

Please receive this letter of recommendation in support of Ms. Robin Boyce.

For the better part of the past 12 months, Robin and her employees have been assisting me and my family in the design and development of our new home. We started our relationship with Robin very early in the process and because of her experience and subcontractor relationships, have avoided many expensive mistakes and prevented costly delays. During this time we have addressed every aspect of the building process from interior design, material selection, exterior landscaping, kitchen design, flooring, lighting, appliance selection, etc, etc.

Robin’s communication skills and insight into the building and design process is unparalleled. Her attention to detail and timeliness of work has been remarkable. If there is a required deadline, she will meet or exceed the target. If there is a potential delay looming, she will find it and fix it. Robin is extremely responsive, articulate, and unmatched in her professional approach to business.

We are nearing the conclusion of our home project and it has been an extremely rewarding and exciting experience. Prior to hiring Robin, we interviewed multiple design and architectural firms and can comfortably say that we made a very good decision!! We would, without question, recommend Robin to anyone!!

On a personal note, my wife Donna and I have become absolutely, positively enamored with Robin and her assistant Pat. They are no longer simply business associates, they are family and we have built a relationship and friendship with them that we will cherish forever!!

Sincerely yours,

Michael J. Savage
