"I don't have to
meet everyone in the driveway
like I used to!"
Erin has great vision for space and how it can be transformed for greater function and beauty. Erin really listened to our ideas and asked many questions in order to bring clarity and focus to the design. She guided us in the selection of quality materials that brought texture to a well integrated, clean design. This design has proven itself with three generations of cooks. After two years, we still marvel at its beauty!
Erin has an amazing ability to just walk into a room and see how it could be more balanced, comfortable and beautiful. What she was able to do in just a few short hours was astounding. I am so grateful to her for turning rooms I avoided in the past into my favorites spaces in the house.
Erin Cochran was vital the success of our kitchen renovation. After saving for many years for this major project, I felt paralyzed by the overwhelming number of decisions and was fearful of making mistakes. Erin came for a consultation and I knew that I could trust her instincts for how to make the most of the space. She made two key decisions that we will never regret—- saving a window to let in more natural light (versus adding to the bank of cabinets) and getting rid of a wall that completing transformed this traditional colonial into a gorgeous open concept home. In addition, Erin convinced us that we could scale back on the overall renovation and still achieve what we were looking for in the remodel. Her instincts and knowledge about how to make the most of the space that we have rather than adding on additional space saved us a lot of money in the long run. If you are undertaking a project— large or small—- and need another opinion that you can trust, I would suggest calling Erin for her guidance and expertise. We are so pleased with our home.
We hired Erin as a design consultant in 2012 when we bought our new “old” home. Erin helped us renovate the entire first floor, including a completely remodeled kitchen, bathrooms, fireplace and hardwood floors. From the minute we met her, we realized that she was full of new, fresh and innovative ideas (for example at our first meeting, she came up with an idea to install a sky light in our kitchen with a low ceiling- which has dramatically improved the amount of natural light in our kitchen). She understood our needs and design style right away. She was pleasant, reliable and always available. She meandered us through many tough decisions (including tiles, flooring, granite choices etc.) and navigated our “decision fatigue” effortlessly. She masters the perfect balance of guidance without being intrusive or overtly influential. We felt that, through (and with) her, we could express our style beautifully. She worked seamlessly with our contractor and painter, and laid out all plans with them with our minimal involvement. We absolutely love how Erin helped transform our house into a beautiful home that we can truly call our “own”. We would hire her again anytime!
What I liked best about working with Erin of Revealing Redesign on a makeover of my great room was her ability to combine my vision with her talent. Now, in the morning when I sit in the room drinking my coffee, I literally sigh with joy at the result. Before meeting Erin, the idea of working with a decorator felt intimidating. Erin, however, is anything but. She accesses impeccable taste as she employs a roll-up-your-sleeves approach to design. For our final session, Erin pulled up in my driveway with a car full of accessories and proceeded to layer them with my personal treasures in a way that was nothing short of brilliant. From start to finish, Erin honored my aesthetic as well as the constraints of my budget. Her passion, skill and flexibility made my experience with Revealing Redesign everything I’d hoped it would be. Next, it’s on to transforming my 90’s bathroom into a spa retreat. With Erin’s help, of course.
My husband & I had struggled with a frustrating, odd-shaped living room for years. With full glass windows on one side and such a big open space, we found it very difficult to furnish. We could never figure out how to make the room work. Erin stepped in and was able to create the vision for how the room could function and still be beautiful. Without her help in the past, I purchased furniture that was the wrong size, placed it incorrectly, and my husband then peppered the room with an additional mishmash of furniture. It was chaos. However, with Erin’s guidance, the space is now pulled-together, with defined spaces, and it functions beautifully for all of the activities that we do in that space—living large when we are entertaining, or cozy and intimate when we are just watching tv on a quiet evening. Erin helped us to add architectural detail that enhanced the beauty of the room and highlighted its best features. Decorative beams, and new fireplace surround, wrapping structural elements in beautiful wood detail—all now add warmth to the room and make it feel finished. The colors, textures, and other decorative elements create a very calming space that we now love to spend time in and feel proud to show off to our friends and family.
Erin has an uncanny ability to walk into your home and imagine it as it could be with the materials and furniture you already have. With some rearranging and one trip to Home Goods and a new coat of paint, I had a drab entry turn into a grand entry. I have worked with Erin to keep my house organized and running smoothly. her help has been invaluable.
Erin knows how to turn your home into everything you’ve wanted- and she does it in a graceful, loving manner. Listen to her and trust her. It was a great investment for me!!
