Working with Donna at Designer Previews was fruitful yet fun! She really listened and got to know me and my family’s style, and directed me accordingly. More importantly, she knew her designers very well. She understood their range, expertise and personality. Donna was very involved, yet not overbearing, as we outlined the project scope, and negotiated the contract.
At the end of the day, Designer Previews connected my family with a phenomenal, creative and professional team that I would not have met on my own.

“When we were trying to decide on an interior designer for our remodeling project in Los Angeles, the myriad of choices was daunting. Having Donna Paul as a resource and a guide in choosing the appropriate designer to match not only our taste, but the scope of the project, was beyond helpful. Donna spent time at our residence and really asked the right questions to help us find the interior designer that was perfect for the job. Her recommendation was a great fit and she even helped us select our landscape architect.”

“Donna could not have been more helpful in finding possible design partners. She learned all about our personalities and needs and then honed on some incredible designers for us to meet. Throughout the entire experience, it was obvious how much she cares about her clients. Donna is a true bargain and a must do for anyone trying to find a designer.”

For someone overwhelmed with all decisions related to picking an interior designer, Donna at Designer Previews was a welcome savior, and a well-deserved indulgence after a grueling home-search. For what I deemed to be an extremely inexpensive fee, Designer Previews helped me ascertain and verbalize my taste in interior design, choose an appropriate group of designers to interview, and guide me through the interview process as well as the final decision process. Discussions with designers, on availability, budget, and otherwise, were also guided by Designer Previews.
Given the expansive world of design and designers, Designer Previews was a shortcut to the best and most suited choice, a filter that did not leave me wanting more. ”

My wife and I believe that you have been a tremendous help in our search for a designer in NYC, in what was a 3-day time frame. Everything went smoothly, from our first conversation on Skype ten days ago, to our final designer ‘shopping’ trip this afternoon. Thank you so much for matching us with our wonderful designer.

Designer Previews was an invaluable resource for us. Donna Paul guided us through the process and helped us find the perfect match. Her knowledge and expertise is immeasurable. This is the second time we’ve used Designer Previews. We’d use DP again in a heartbeat.

Guiding clients through the inevitably stressful interior design process is the goal of Designer Previews, and president Donna Paul is terrific at it. My husband and I called her as we faced a major renovation of our New York City coop. We felt overwhelmed by the scope of work, insecure about our ability to covert isolated design choices into a coherent and beautiful apartment. Donna arrived with a computer full of designers’ portfolios. She was friendly, forthright, interested in our needs, and refreshingly unpretentious. Chatting and looking at gorgeous rooms, we identified two designers to interview, both of whom, to our later surprise, we liked very much. Donna urged us to gather more information, offered to meet for more previews (we didn’t need to), and interacted with us by phone and email. It has been great to have an informed ally, someone who truly seems committed to getting us the home we imagine. Though we can get impatient with our own slow decision-making, never once did we sense that from Donna.

Looking at a series of empty rooms and trying to convert them into a dream home can be overwhelming. But not if you are fortunate enough to work with Donna Paul of Designer Previews. Donna will meet with you to learn about your preferences. She will then show you photos of the work of some of New York’s best interior designers and architects who know how to give you the look you want. All within the parameters of your budget and your style. Within minutes of meeting her it was clear to me how much she just gets it. Working with Donna Paul is like having a real life fairy godmother of interior design.

I have found the services offered by the Designer Previews invaluable. To someone with very little experience in the area of interior design, Designer Previews was instrumental in not only assisting me in choosing an interior decorator, but, most importantly, in helping me to identify my own style, to explain the design process , and offering guidance throughout. I could not imagine going through the process of decorating my new apartment without the help of Designer Previews. I have recommended the services of Designer Previews to many of my friends, who have come back to me with greatest gratitude for the recommendation.
