We loved working with Janet Aurora at Signature Design. She took a blank slate and turned it into our favorite room in the house. The space is comfortable, welcoming and beautiful for the family and entertaining. She shared several designs which all matched our taste and made perfect recommendations throughout the processs. We highly recommend her.
I worked with Janet and had a great experience. My condo is fairly small with peculiar angles. Janet maximized the space with her design plan and found great furniture pieces for me. In selecting upholstery and draperies she gave me just enough options to choose from without overwhelming me. Everything was completed on schedule and she handled the entire install for me while I was away on work travel. It was seamless.
Their staging designs are exceptional and every time I use them I get numerous comments from prospective purchasers. Their follow up and diligence is top notch.
This is a top notch staging company. Annamaria knew exactly how to design a layout that made my house look amazing. She was extremely easy to work with, very responsive, and worked within my tight schedule. She took care of everything from start to finish. All I had to do was give her access to the house. I sold my house in one weekend with multiple offers and more than the asking price in a slow selling season. I'm convinced that her staging had a lot to do with it. I would easily recommend this company to anyone who's interested in making the best impression.
I have never used a professional designer before. Janet was very patient as I expressed my desire for something "fun". I am delighted with the outcome and got my "fun" and "wow factor" that I was looking for. Thank you, Janet, for your patience and good humor it was a pleasure working with you.
I hired Katie McGovern to help me develop a design for my family room. She was outstanding. She came up with a plan that was consistent with my overall scheme but at the same time, fresh and interesting. She found some great pieces that I never would have found on my own and tie them in with my previous purchases and artwork. She also was a true professional; when an issue arose with a table after installation, she and her team addressed it promptly. In addition, she is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her.
Signature Design Interiors staged my home in One Loudoun and did an amazing job! They brought in furnishings, art, area rugs, linens, and accessories to highlight my home's best features. The turnaround time between requesting their help and the completed project was just a couple of days. I highly recommend the team at Signature Design Interiors for staging as well as decorating and remodeling. They are top notch!
Signature Design Interiors were EXACTLY what I needed in my life, as I wanted to uniquely create a fabulous, warm space for my young family, in my newly built home! More specifically, Signature's exquisite personal designer, Ms. Bonnie met my every need and truly put her body and soul into the flawless and timeless decor of my home! From the window treatments, designer pillows, wall decor and color consultation, to the flawless wallpaper, accent pieces, and precise measurements and installation...I come home daily and say "Ahhhhhhh"! I'm EXCEEDINGLY happy!
This was our first experience using a design firm. It was time to replace our worn couch and easy chair. We had recently moved from a home that had both a living room and a family room, to our current home that combined the two. We were seeking a look that had "flair" that would also be comfortable. We couldn't be happier with the results.
Everything came together seamlessly - from our initial meetings, the painting, furniture delivery/set up and curtain and picture hanging. This is a room we will truly enjoy for years to come!
Signature Design Interiors was instrumental during the design and construction of our new home. From the very beginning, Sandra and Janet provided us with knowledgeable advice regarding room layout, finishes, and all other selections. As a specific example, they iterated with us on the master bathroom layout to include additional functionality and design flourishes. SDI stood by us and provided guidance, support, and expertise as we walked through the confusing and overwhelming process of choosing all the details for our new home. They attended our selection meetings, contractor meetings, walked through our home during construction numerous times, and provided advice over and above what we expected at the beginning of the project. Just as importantly, they were always mindful of our budget and helped us stay within it. We wouldn't have our new dream home without Sandra and Janet!
I would definitely use her again. She did a great job at a reasonable price. If you're looking for a stager I would recommend Annamaria.
The Signature Design Interiors team is a delight to work with. They know their job backwards and forwards and are very responsive to any questions. My home renovation turned out beautifully!
We were very pleased working with Janet of Signature Design Interiors. The company was originally used to help with a paint color consultation. We liked Janet's design style so we continued to use the companies services for a facelift of our kitchen, entryway, and bedroom. She handled all of the scheduling with the contractors for us. It was excellent too because all of the recommended contractors were professional and did an great job. Janet as well was on site with the contractors to ensure they knew the job before starting. We would recommend and use again Signature Design Interiors, especially Janet.
Sandra and Gina where a wonderful, attentive team, who took care of every detail of our kitchen project. We had grand, crazy ideas, strong opinions, and a hectic environment (kids, dogs, schedule). We absolutely could not be happier with the outcome of our project. We've never taken on anything of this size before and while we wanted to go bold, I was a little concerned about how it would all come together.br/> These ladies are true professionals and great listeners. They took our ideas, molded them with some of their own, and created magic!
Janet helped me from April - August 2016 to decorate my new row house in DC. I started without any furniture and Janet worked with me to systematically move through the house from dining room to living room, two bedrooms, and TV den. She was excellent at bringing me options and styles that matched my tastes, fit in with the exposed brick and flooring already in the house, and were available quickly (given I was already living in an empty house). She managed all the logistics, purchasing, delivery, and installation - and it was great to come home from work trips and vacation to brand new additions in the house. She also did a great job working with the wall art and accessories I already had while adding a few more to complement. The end result is a very comfortable, functional, and great looking house (while everyone who comes shocked I only moved into 4-5 months ago). Thank you Janet!
Janet Aurora was fantastic to work with and helped me make maximum the use of my existing furniture but still achieve the modern design I wanted for my new place. Janet came to my previous home to measure and inventory my existing furniture and met my realtor to measure my new home before I closed on it. She developed several design options with various price levels to work within my budget. All the options were presented in scale and placed in the floorplan of my condo.
There are several reasons I recommend Signature Design Interiors: (1) their process for design, layout, and creating options; (2) the quality of the furniture I purchased; (3) their willingness to integrate existing furnishings and even new furniture not purchased through them; (4) their ability to work within your budget; and (5) their people. I only worked with Janet Aurora but if the other designers show the same passion for their jobs, you will be happy with the results.
We hired this company to do a floorplan and furniture for our new remodeled family/living room. Janet did a great job with the floorplan, and helping us select almost all new furnishings, window treatments, rugs, paint, and some accessories. We are really pleased with the result. Our new space looks amazing, Janet has excellent taste, and really listened to what we wanted.
Many, many thanks for all your help yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with you and AnnaMaria, and believe we came up with some brilliant ideas! And I appreciate your floor plan sketch. You even thought to research the pendant lights. Your artistic sensibilities are evident.
Janet, I wanted to take a moment and extend my appreciation for what you have been doing for us. I am amazed at how quickly you put together a furniture plan, paint plan, window treatments and managed all the various components as we get closer to the deadline. Very easily I might add since you have narrowed it all down to a place where no matter how difficult the space was, what we choose you read our mind and it will be fabulous. No words can express our gratitude and everything is made perfect with your expertise.
Janet Aurora has helped us design/decorate many areas of our home over the course of several years: the front hall/living/dining area, turning a sunroom into a playroom and creating a finished basement. Throughout 2014/2015, Ann McMullen helped us with several organizing projects (large and small — including cleaning out our unfinished basement). Both women are professional, are easy to work with, have fantastic ideas and make them happen. We love our beautiful and organized rooms! We will turn to Signature Design Interiors for future projects.
Carol looked at all the areas in the house where we wanted advice on furniture arrangement or new furniture placement (includes basement, loft, living area, dinning area, sitting area, sun room and master bedroom) and advised us, followed by an email with notes on our key discussion points. She even sketched the different areas to show the furniture arrangements.
Janet Aurora helped us turn our intimidating family room into a beautiful and comfortable living space. We designed the room from scratch, provided her with bits and pieces of information regarding what we liked and needed in the room and she was able to completely transform it into something we absolutely love.
Janet is extremely knowledgeable, professional, very patient, excellent listener and really fun to work with. She carefully guides you to make good choices always listening to your needs and desires. Several times in this process I know I could have made design mistakes and she was there to save me. She is always there to provide her expertise and opinion if you need help deciding something. She is very punctual, responsive, and ensures the project gets done on time and within budget. And most importantly, Janet will do whatever it takes to make sure you are happy!
Helped turn a new house into a home; new furniture, window treatments, carpeting, and overall organizing.
Moved from a three story townhouse to one mostly set-up on one floor (there’s a loft/third bedroom on second floor) in a gated, over-55, community. Janet Aurora, my decorator, figured-out how to turn a cavernous great room in a living space. She was gracious, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with.
I wanted to reach out to say Thank You so much to you and your team for what you did for us at The Harrison last week! I have NO idea how I would have gotten the place decorated without you guys. It looks beautiful and we’ve gotten a lot of great comments from the residents. Your work also received high praise from one of the owners and his wife who stopped by Sunday morning.
Please know how very delighted my husband and I were with the beautiful, beautiful decorating job Sarah and Anna Maria accomplished in our apartment for Christmas and the holidays. In tandem, Sarah and Anna Maria transformed our space to Christmas radiance—simplicity in the scheme of Christmas decorating, yet exuding beauty, elegance, and a sense of serenity. They are such an asset to Signature Design Interiors—talented, thoughtful, diligent—dedicated professionals.
We have been enjoying our new living room for just about two months now and we are so thrilled with the finished project! It was such a pleasure working with you – you made everything so easy – from colors to size to layout. We have had a few visitors/guests in our home over the past several weeks and everyone raves about our new living room. I am looking forward to hosting my book club in December : ) Many thanks for all of your ideas and assistance. We look forward to working with you on a future project.

I have found Bonnie and Gina a pleasure to work with. They communicate in a timely manner and are very professional. I ended up having my kitchen cabinets and backslash upgraded and the end product is beautiful. Gina was at my house everyday the workers were there supervising them and to ensure if they had any questions she was there to help. I also worked with Bonnie on getting my dining room table, chairs and china cabinet refinished. They turned out a lot more beautiful than i ever thought they would look! | highly recommend this provider on any decorating project you have thought of doing, you wont be disappointed.
We hired the firm to add an attached garage onto our home. This was no easy task as we worked closely with Sandra Hambley and her contractor on the project. Gathering plans/permits, design/function details and moving current electric lines were all given full attention.
We are still working on my project, expect to finish either the end of October or beginning of November, but based on my interactions at this point I would recommend this firm to anyone looking for interior decorators. They are Excellent, customer service is excellent, they listened to me, found my natural style and presented various options on how to get there.
I had just finished remodeling my kitchen and I needed window coverings and cushions for my new bench seating. Crystal provided great design ideas. I could not be more pleased with how beautiful the shape, colors, and fabric turned out! Crystal really knows her stuff. She was great through the whole process and a joy to work with. I cannot wait to have her help me with other parts of my house!
My husband and I had chosen a contractor to complete a renovation of our kitchen, dining room, family room and master bathroom. Early into the relationship we realized we needed expert design assistance. Janet was very responsive, helpful, easy to work with, always had our best interest in mind when working with the contractor and very knowledgeable. She made many recommendations based on lessons learned from all her past experiences working with contractors. We would definitely recommend Janet to work with again.
Katie McGovern was delightful to work with. She immediately picked up on the kind of decor we would need and like, and chose items perfectly attuned to our tastes. She met an aggressive timeframe with aplomb and did a great job coordinating the myriad contractors, schedules, and details.
Very professional, said what they would do and did what they said. Bonnie Peet was extremely helpful and very, very nice. I am very pleased with the final outcome.
The team did an amazing job, and I would recommend them in a second to any of my friends! Thank you in particular to Janet Aurora, lead on my project. I needed someone who could take my fuzzy vision and turn it into something wonderful, and who could manage every detail (including subcontractors and deliveries, etc) for me while I continued to focus on my daily, crazy, busy life…invaluable.
After moving 19 times in 36 years I wanted to work with a professional to make my final home something that reflected me. Working with Katie McGovern made this decision seamless.
We have worked with Janet Aurora for over 5 years. Janet has helped us do several projects ranging from complete rooms, custom furniture, fixture selection, augmenting existing furniture and changing room layouts. Janet truly understands our style and our needs – presenting us with wonderfully warm and functional spaces in our home. The entire team is top notch – from installation, delivery and set up to follow-on work and repairs when needed.
Janet worked with me and my husband to decorate multiple rooms in our new home. I enjoyed the collaborative process of decorating with Janet. She pays close attention to what her clients say, their budget and deadlines, and executes with the appropriate amount of influence in a timely manner.
We hired the firm for color consultation and overall layout changes in my house. We are happy with the outcome. We were very confused with the choices of colors, color companies, finishes etc. We really needed someone to make decisions for us while educating us with the choices made. Sandra helped us to pick some neutral colors while making suggestions around the floor and space planning.
We never utilized an interior decorator and really did not know what to expect but once we met Crystal Cline we just “connected”; she made us feel extemely comfortable, confident and excited about decorating our new home.
Janet and her team are wonderful. They spent a lot of time listening to our vision and creating two spaces in our home that we just love. Janet was able to incorporate our own pieces into the design and matched them with window treatments other items (big and small) we never would have imagined, yet finished the spaces beautifully. We are so grateful!
