Ginger and her team do not disappoint. It's amazing how they can manage projects of variable budgets from the smallest up the boat lavish, but they can transform the humblest room into the most beautiful space. Ginger and her team have turned our whole house around by just working on our dining address, and I can't wait to do the rest of the house with her!
I used the Full-Home Architectural Review Service offered by Urbanology. I love that this is an a-la-carte service that provides me total peace of mind for making the final approval to our Architectural plans. I was asked to send over a list of any concerns I had with the home, any design boards and videos of the home, along with a file of the renovation plans for our 1927 Tudor Revival home. The Urbanology team reviewed my plans and a few days later, we scheduled a 1.5 hour call. Liz ran the Zoom call and she covered every single concern I had for the home, including the flow of the kitchen, should I vault the ceiling, add beams or not, squeeze in a shower in the powder room, best place for the TV in the Family room, where to add more windows, location of bathroom and closet doors, shape of doorway arches, etc. She also sketched in suggested placement of appliances and lighting and found creative ways to relocate and repurpose some of the original windows and doors in the home to work with the new floor plan. Liz took great care to consider the historic style of the home with all of her suggestions. Liz sent me design sketches overlaid onto the architectural plans for every room of the home, as well as inspiration photos that best highlighted her design concept, and they arrived via email within 10 minutes after the call. My husband and I were completely satisfied with the level of detail and expertise shared during the Architectural Review. We now have peace of mind to move forward with the plans!
Ginger helped us transform our starter home. She was patient, kind and had amazing recommendations. I can’t believe how much we got done in 2 hours! Paint colors, furniture ideas, lighting fixtures, wall paper, shelving, blinds picked out. It truly transformed it home which we just sold for $15,000 over asking. Use them! You won’t regret it.
I wanted to let you know that the house finally feels complete! I feel like sometimes you get new furniture, items, pillows, art, etc. and it takes a while for it to feel like home or settle( not sure if this makes sense), but not this time. I immediately felt connected, a home that we can come in to and feel.....this is my retreat, my sanctuary. I know this might sound silly to some but it was also important for me to include and feel like the kids( I know they are grown adults...but hey they are my babies) had a say in the decoration of the house too. Your team made me feel very comfortable in expressing this. By the way, they both loved what you did to the house.
From past experiences working with a decorator I have felt like they push what they want along with me feeling uncomfortable voicing my own opinion. I have to say that I never felt that from the first moment that I met (and talked) with Ginger and her team. Your team took the time to ask me what was important to me along with looking at all of my photos, which were a lot!! Kyle would always say.....you haven't found enough photos yet? I am not a person that has to have a lot of "things" . I feel it is important to have some negative( what you call it) space. I never really felt that I had a style but your team helped me pull all of that together. As you know it is a very difficult time in my life right now. The fact that we did not have the lake house finished just added another layer of stress for me. After talking with Ginger I felt like ok I can just take a breath.... hand this over to her and not worry at all. It was such a relief to know it would get done and be perfect. I wish that I could tell you what my favorite piece is in the whole house but I can't because I love everything. For me it is about the small details in decorating. My lake house has those now. I do wish that I was better at expressing how much your team's gratitude, kindness, welcoming attitude, along with the uncomplicated and effortless process this was for me.
Thank you again for all that you have done for me and my family in making my lake house a HOME.
Oh, I do want to express how much I LOVE the painting of my house. Such a cool gift!
This review is for all the husbands out there. Your wife is convinced that you need an interior designer, but you’re not so sure.
Let me just tell you: it’s so worth it.
After building a new home, we needed to finish out our new spaces. We had some ideas of what we wanted, but we weren’t really sure where to start. At first, I thought we could handle the searching and the decisions that go into designing. However, manifesting our vision quickly became overwhelming.
But then we found Ginger at Urbanology Designs!
Ginger and team took on everything for us. They were able to navigate all the decision making, the searching and the coordination. It was seriously such a burden lifted.
If you’re on the fence about it, just do it. I promise that you’ll thank yourself later. They are truly the nicest people to work with.
I had a great experience working with Ginger and the Urbanology Design team to furnish my entire house. This was a BIG job and they handled every detail beautifully. I spoke with them about my vision for the style and they took the reins from there. They did an excellent job of giving me just the right amount of options, so I did not get hindered by too many choices. I thought they were very straightforward about their fees and were respectful of our established budget. They handled all of the logistics which made the whole process stress free for me. The best part was the big reveal! I would most definitely recommend Urbanology Designs and would love to work with them again in the future!
We had an absolutely fantastic experience working with Urbanology Designs. Our home recently incurred significant damage from the winter storm and in order to get the renovation under way, we hired Ginger and her team to help with all of the finish out design and materials including cabinet layout plans, tile, paint, lighting, hardware and fixtures. The main designer that we worked with was Liz Mears and we could not have better things to say about our working relationship and the creativity she brought to the project. She came to our house and walked through our ideas and inspiration and with a very quick turnaround, presented the exact proposal that matched our design inspiration and information needed for our General Contractor to get started on the renovation after the demo work. Understanding that construction times could take longer during this time where there are unfortunately many others in a displaced situation, she even gave us an early preview of cabinet plans and drywall finish out so we could get to our contractor even sooner. I would highly recommend anyone using Urbanology for a renovation and finish out project. If we ever have another project in the future, they'll be the first people we will call.
Ginger was AWESOME! We used the deluxe 3 hr walkthrough consultation. My wife and I love decorating and are pretty good at it so I was skeptical that Ginger would be worth it. We were quickly proved wrong - Ginger gave us so many unique and creative design ideas we would have never thought of, she really listened to us, caught our vision and then delivered recommendations and an entire house vision. THANK YOU GINGER, you are great!
