Praise from Our Clients

Scott designed and implemented a complete renovation of the first floor of our home. This included remodeling a powder room, refinishing flooring and lighting , adding windows, replacing a fireplace and a front door, finishes and painting four rooms. He also redecorated each of these rooms, including furnishings, window treatments and artwork.

We were extremely happy with the experience. Scott worked very closely with us during this project, which spanned several months. The renovated/ redecorated rooms look fantastic. He used a contractor who did extremely high quality work. The renovated rooms looks like new as a result of all the careful prep work and attention to detail. Scott worked closely with us to select new furniture and finishings which suit the house as well as our taste. He also flexible and sensitive to our time constraints and travel schedules.

He has a really great eye for furniture and artwork, and we have not regretted any the many choices we have made along the way based on his advice. Our goal going it to the project was to completely overhaul the first floor of the house and make it into some thing beautiful and comfortable and Scott has achieved that!

I hired Scott Cooke Design to redesign the back garden space of my row house in the Dupont Circle area of Washington, DC. Scott was a pleasure to work with, creating an innovative landscape design that honored my clean, contemporary design aesthetic.

He was able to transform my modest, uninteresting space into a highly usable outdoor living area. The new outdoor garden terrace provides a place to read the paper and have my morning coffee, as well as an inviting space in which to entertain guests. The transformation has been remarkable and had added real value to my home.

After our company transitioned into our new office space, in downtown Bethesda, we began the search for an interior designer to create a welcoming work environment. Several designers submitted design proposals for the project, but Scott developed a unique, custom concept for our work space that was not seen with the other submissions.

Scott has been a pleasure to work with; listening closely to our needs, and then developing a design strategy that incorporated our company artwork, hitting the target of our aesthetic perfectly. Installation ran smoothly and was well organized. Our inevitable change requests were accommodated quickly and professionally.

Scott was reliable, efficient and courteous, which are rare qualities not often found in business today. The final product is impressive, and we never fail to receive compliments from visiting guests. The hard work and team effort that was displayed was much appreciated, and we hope to work with Scott again on future projects.

Having never worked with an interior designer before, I had preconceived notions that the cost would be prohibitive. I was also concerned that the size of my space would not be large enough for a designer to take seriously. In working with Scott, I came to realize that my perceptions were wrong; Scott's rates were affordable, his purchases were geared towards value for the dollar, and he worked diligently to make my space seem much larger than it actually is.

The finished product is a testament to Scott's professional expertise. He not only achieved the cohesive, clean, contemporary look I desired, but also taught me, in a very subtle way, the art of restraint. The overwhelming consensus I get from friends and family, is that the transformation has been dramatic; I'm thoroughly pleased with the outcome of the project.

We discovered a gem of a designer when we hired Scott Cooke. We interviewed a number of interior designers to remodel and update the appearance of our living room. Scott proved to be everything we were looking for -- and more. We greatly appreciate his ability to listen to our needs, wants, and tastes and to gently educate us and guide us about a variety of options that fit within our esthetic and price range. Not only were Scott’s fees reasonable but he also negotiated substantial discounts in the large pieces we purchased; an amazing (and unexpected) value in and of itself.

Scott was enjoyable to work with: very knowledgeable, attitude-free, personable, conscientious, creative, and wanting to please. His knack for fabric and fabric designs is another bonus. (Visitors to our home predictably “ooh and ah” – especially about the drapery fabric.) And this brings up another great point.

Scott chooses talented crafts people for his custom work (pillows, draperies, moldings, floors, etc.). He even took initiative on his own to find us an artist in our price range for a commissioned painting. All of his work was delivered on time and within budget. No haggles, no stress. He delivers on his promises. He’s completely trust worthy.

We were so delighted with the interior design experience, we hired him to re-design the landscaping and gardens in front of our home. Again he delivered a beautiful product. We highly recommend Scott and are available to talk to you about his work.
