Although I have never come close to winning a lottery, I feel like I definitely hit the jackpot when I engaged Carole Sciotto to be the interior decorator for my new beach condo. Without any hesitation, I would recommend her to all my family and friends, as well as anyone who wants a top of the line professional to do their work. What makes her outstanding? To begin with, she listened to my likes and dislikes. After that she instantly went to work gathering samples of paint, fabrics, window treatments, flooring and furniture, and met with me to make decisions about each of these. She informed me of prices and options, all the while attending to my budget needs. At no time did she push me; however, she was a constant guide as she put her expertise into action. Once the major decisions were made, I left the beach and was gone for over a month. During that time, Carole sent me pictures of the progress of the work, as well as options to be considered. It was rare that a day went by that I didn’t get a text message with pictures that said “Which of these do you like best?” She made it so easy for me. While I was away, Carole handled EVERY detail of the project, from plumbers to painters. If something did not look right to her, she made these folks do it over to her satisfaction. I can honestly say that she handled my condo renovation as she would have her very own. When I saw the redecorated project for the first time, I was thrilled with every aspect. I could not believe the transformation from the old to the new!!!! Carole had even hired a cleaning crew to come in and clean up the mess that was made during the process, so I literally could have slept in the condo that very night. (She has even purchased perfectly matching sheets for my bed.) At this point in the project, Carole was already dabbling with the accessories to enhance the overall look of the condo. It impressed me that she used as much as she could from what was already there, and added inexpensive, yet wonderfully selected, accessories to give my new habitat that “finished” look. She attended to every detail, from the front door mat to tissue boxes on the sinks to bulbs in every lamp. She even selected a perfect matching coffee pot for my kitchen counter, after checking with me about my preferences. In a little over two months the project was completed, within my budget limitations and beyond my expectations. I could never have imagined a better experience. Entrusting Carole Sciotto to redecorate my new condominium was truly one of the best decisions I have ever made. -Jane B.
Working with Carole is like working with a white tornado, she gets the job done! Carole was able to take our dingy, dark, dated condo and turn it into a bright, cheery, modern seaside getaway in a record amount of time (two months). Since we rent the condo for most of the year, it was imperative that she finish on time. We are out-of-state owners so Carol was not only our decorator but was also responsible for overseeing the entire renovation. As you can see from the before and after photos, not only did she get the job done but she did it with pizzazz. -Henry and Eileen M.
While building our “home away from home”, we decided we would like to work with a designer, as we wanted a completely different look than that of our home in New Jersey. Not being able to remain in South Carolina for extended periods of time we were looking for someone we could trust, that would work within our budget and in our time line. Our builder suggested Carole’s Concepts to us. We placed a call to Carole and she got back to us immediately in order to set up an initial meeting. Carole has been working with us for 3 years now, as we complete one project at a time. She has the knack of bring our ideas to reality. From the most broad and general scheme to the tiniest detail Carole continues to make our home everything we’ve dreamed of and more. As we continue to work with Carole, we are extremely confident that no detail will be overlooked and once all the projects are completed, we will have a home that has a “WOW factor” and one we continue to be proud of. There are not enough words or ways to say thank you to Carole; we are so lucky to have found her! We give her the highest regard and would not hesitate recommending Carole’s Concepts to anyone! -John and Linda S.
Carole’s Concepts goes beyond their promise in delivering a pleasing and stylish decorating package! All within a reasonable budget which provides added satisfaction. Carole is patient and brings her clients into the design and execution phases of her decorating plan. My wife and I wholeheartedly endorse Carole's Concepts! We wouldn’t hesitate to engage Carole's Concepts again and again! -Bill and Margaret H.
Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with everything you have done to make our condo look so good! It has been so nice working with you – you really listen to us so your choices are exactly what we like. I got to spend a week at the condo in March and I felt very comfortable there – I love the colors, the pictures and other wall hangings and the furniture. It all works so well together! You’ll be the first we’ll call if we need any other interior design work – and we’ll highly recommend you. Thanks for all of your help and hard work! -Jeff and Tracy H.
