Star Star Star Star Star We stopped by Unusual Design on an impulse, after riding by at least daily. Needing/wanting new window coverings, we thought it would be interesting to see what was inside. We were greeted by Anne, we explained what we were looking for, and quickly impressed by her knowledge of products, her professionalism and willingness to listen. We scheduled a home visit, she brought samples as well as her knowledge and skill set as a decorator. We selected, and ordered! We are extremely pleased with the final outcome, and would highly recommend their services.

Star Star Star Star Star I recently purchased Hunter Douglas luminette privacy sheers from Unusual Designs. Anne, the owner, and her team (including the installation team) were easy to work with. She provided recommendations (which made me think) and was open to my suggestions. I vacillated between plantation shutters and luminettes. I had luminettes in the master bedroom when I lived in CA, and ultimately decided on them again when I relocated to VA. I love the look!

Star Star Star Star Star Anne Fitch and her Unusual Designs team updated our great room and kitchen recently with new paint and three new window treatments. Anne chose a warm gray color and then suggested co-ordinating window blinds. She did an excellent job managing the project from estimating it to co-ordinating with the painter and installer. She always followed through on her promises and was always accessible. For our powder room update, she suggested a faux finish for both walls and ceiling. What was once a drab bathroom is now elegant! Ricardo, the painter, specializes in faux finishes, but he painted the great room and kitchen as well. He is an outstanding painter with a very good eye for color and style. He is meticulous in preparation, in application, and in cleanup. Brian, who installs the window treatments, is equally skilled. Not only are they efficient, they are easy to work with as well. I would recommend without reservation this team of professionals for any home decorating project.

Star Star Star Star Star Having worked with Anne on a kitchen project several years ago, I did not hesitate to seek her expertise again for a living room redesign. I am not well versed in design styles or terms, and Anne took time to listen closely in order to understand my goal for my living space. With my goal in mind, she guided me stepwise through the process of changing my old dark room into the brighter updated one I imagined. Anne provided carefully selected options for furniture arrangements, colors, fabrics and finishes. I was neither overwhelmed by too many choices nor underwhelmed from too few. She was patient with my indecisiveness and gave guidance when I asked, nudging me to consider new or bolder looks and expanding my “comfort zone”. I loved her suggestions. My finished room is beautiful, welcoming, and cozy- everything I wanted it to be. I could not have achieved such a look without Anne - a true design professional. I will definitely call on her for my next project.

Star Star Star Star Star Ann was wonderful to work with! She took time to explain the various options and price points. She allowed me to review swatches prior to placing the order to ensure I liked my choices. The installation was quick and professional. I would definitely recommend Unusual Designs and hope to work with them again in the future.

Star Star Star Star Star Anne was wonderful to work with! She helped me get out of my comfort zone while decorating two bathrooms. Window treatments and wallpaper took my bathrooms to the next level! I tend to make quick decisions and I appreciated her coaxing me to slow down and she was spot on with that advice! I highly recommend Unusual Design!!

Star Star Star Star Star I recently had a cornice board and sheers made from Unusual Designs. They are beautiful and changed the whole look of my den. I had curtains made from them before and they were also beautiful, but it was time for a total change. The work they do is awesome. You are not just a client, they truly help you with picking out stuff and giving you ideas. Anne sat with me for a long time going through numerous books until I found exactly what I was looking for. Then she came to my house with the books and we compared it to the other colors and items in my den.. She also helped me look on the computer for pictures to go with my new look. I would not have any other company do work for me. I am a customer for life because of the way she treats me. Also her receptionist, Lisa, is great. If you have a question she will try and help you , if she can’t then she will make sure Anne gets the message and gets right back to you. It is a total one shop shopping experience and you will never be disappointed.

Star Star Star Star Star The project was a kitchen renovation and Unusual Designs was very helpful in guiding me through the process, helping me pick out what was needed and referring me to local stores/vendors when needed. Most importantly, this project was done on a very tight timeframe. They promised they could do it, and they did! Highly competent and helpful people from owner to affiliated contractors. I recommend them without reservation.
