"A Dream Come True! Rae Duncan Interior Design previously decorated and furnished our design built Shingle Style home. When we decided to take on the basement, we immediately reached out to Rae based on our past experience. The goal was to create a fun and unique gathering place. Our wish-list was vast and included a: multi-media area, billiard room, large bar, wine nook and functioning cigar room. Additionally, we wanted to incorporate high-end design features that felt distinctly different from the rest of our home. Our basement incorporated custom millwork, built-ins, space specific ventilation, etc. My wife and I were immediately impressed with the detail and precision of the architectural plans that were meticulously prepared in advance by Rae - the lead designer on our project. The scale and scope was sizable and therefore required us to make multiple ongoing decisions. We collaborated exceedingly well and had faith and trust in the recommendations Rae and Alissa made. This proved to be the difference maker. The end result is a dream come true! To date we have shared our new space with a few friends and family and we always get a jaw dropping response like…'This is incredible' or 'What an absolutely stunning space'…, etc. 'Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible.' Rae Duncan and team have incredible vision and we are the fortunate beneficiaries."
Rae Duncan is the most talented designer and phenomenal renovation partner with whom I have ever worked. My husband and I are working with Rae on a near complete gut rehab of a home we recently purchased and could not be happier with the results. First, she took the time to understand and help us refine our vision for the home and, after just one initial meeting in our new space, she was able to intuit and articulate how to make our vision a reality. Rae brings a deep and talented network of contractors and craftspeople to the fore to create truly custom spaces, within tight budgets and against tight timelines. And she does more than interior design; she creates transformative interior environments. I have worked with other designers, and none have worked as creatively and efficiently as Rae. She exhibits a rare brand of patience and empathy, expressing her creative vision and point of view while treating her clients as true partners in the design process. She also conceives of brilliant solutions to the design challenges inherent to older homes like the one we recently purchased and smaller spaces like the one she helped us stage and sell. Rae's spatial and aesthetic brilliance, coupled with her sensitivity and responsiveness to her clients' needs, make her a truly incredible designer. I would highly recommend working with Rae; she has truly transformed our space in a way we never could have imagined based on our experience with other designers, and helped transform our lives in the process!
