I am a vendor in the design field and have worked with Carol on many projects over the years. Carol has a good sense of providing her customers with tasteful choices in the design that speak to them and their living environment. She has always been organized, knowledgeable in what she wants, and respectful that timing and quality are two things that go together.

We are pleased to recommend Carol Spong, ASID, of Carol Spong Interior Design most highly.
We sought out Carol’s help to solve problems with the use of our living room, adjacent study/office, dining room and kitchen floor. This space had to serve the function of everything from daily TV watching and reading in good light to entertaining small groups, since there is no family room. Carol solved the furniture placement, designed a retractable TV mount and designed built-in cabinets with drawers and lighted display shelves for our glass and ceramic art objects. Carol skillfully incorporated new furniture choices with re-covered older pieces. She brought us fabric and color samples based on ideas, such as cork kitchen floors and grass Roman shades. She encouraged us to dare to expose and finish our hardwood floors, which we love.
Carol exhibited professionalism and expertise while she remained always conscious of our personal taste, needs and feelings. Out relationship was based on trust and confidence.
Almost all of the sub-contractors and installers were skilled and meticulous craftsmen, clean and trustworthy.
We will definitely employ Carol again when we tackle the bedroom areas in the back of our house.
We highly recommend Carol Spong to anyone seeking help with interior design.

Carol has assisted us with two remodels over the last two and a half years, one of which was a total remodel of our downstairs level, including relocating our kitchen, family room and dining room, as well as the redesign and combination of two existing bedrooms into a suite for our son. The second remodel, of which we are in the final stage, is a master bedroom and bathroom remodel and upgrade. We could not be more pleased with the quality of Carol’s work and with the contractors and subcontractors with whom she has recommended and worked with on our projects.
In addition to working with us to create designs for out projects, Carol has overseen both remodels on a day-to-day basis as our project manager with the level of detail we needed, given out work and travel schedules. Carol is also very responsive to our requests and styles, and is always wiling to do the extra “leg work” to make sure what we want is precisely what we get.
Carol has suggested interesting and unusual ideas which are not only practical, useful and durable, but which have added a great deal of interest and warmth to our home. Carol has worked with us to design furniture, built in cabinetry and lighting, as we have been extremely please with the end result.

Carol is a GREAT Interior Designer! I was looking for an Interior Designer with experience, style, and access to the latest bathroom innovations to help me figure out what I would really love in my new master bath. I also wanted to install French Doors in the downstairs dining room to enjoy my backyard easier. Carol took on both projects and the results exceeded all my expectations.
Carol assessed our family’s color likes and styles and came up with great solutions that both my husband and I loved – a challenge since we like different things! She is easy to work with and made sure that the end result reflected our tastes.
I was also looking for someone to interface with my building contractor – someone who would take care of all the details, scheduling, and purchasing. She was right on top of everything and was on-site constantly to work closely with my contractor. What a great experience!
I love my new master bath and French doors! The colors are beautiful. It feels great to be in these spaces. When we are ready to update the rest of our house, we WILL be calling Carol again. Thank you so much, Carol!
During the past 20 years in the construction business, I have worked with literally hundreds of people. Every once in a while, a person stands out from the pack and deserves to be recognized for their high level of expertise and quality of work. I’d like to commend you on your very high level of experience, skills, design panache, unique and inspired material selections, and enthusiastic team participation. I highly recommend you without reservation to any prospective client.
