Giselle S. & Bob C.

Dear Sondra...

Giselle and I wanted to thank-you for your creative and thoughtful designs that preceded the remodeling of our condominium residence.  From the very beginning you had an uncanny ability to understand our tastes as well as our needs.  As a result, the drawings, the plans, and the unique materials that you suggested were more inspired than we could have ever imagined!  The true testimony to your work comes in two forms.  First is the fact that our home office, our den, and our foyer are all much more useful and striking than prior to the renovation. Second are the enthusiastic compliments  from friends and neighbors who have seen the finished work.  

We thank you for your exceptional vision and skill in making our home more attractive, more useful and much more enjoyable! 

Warmest personal regards,

Giselle and Bob

Dear Sondra, 

Thank you for the beautiful design work on my master suite. I knew the space had potential to be lovely but I never imagined how beautiful it could become! Your vision and creativity completely transformed my dated bathroom.   

When we met for our design consultation I was hopeful that you would be able to take all of my "inspiration" samples and design something specifically for me and I was not disappointed. The presentation of your design was thorough and comprehensive. Your selections of tiles, cabinetry, lighting and painting options took my breath away! And, after execution of the build portion of the project, my master suite is truly a masterpiece. 

I absolutely love everything you designed for me and I can't wait to collaborate with you again in the future!

We had Sondra come to help us pick interior colors for our house, they are stunning it made such a difference. I was in the living room reading, looked up and thought to myself what gorgeous colors, that was on Saturday and then on Sunday  I found myself saying the same thing. We are beyond happy.

I happened to see the new Coastal Life Design center so i decided to stop by to see what they were all about. This was the BEST stop I have made in quite a while. Sondra Okada introduced herself and made me feel very welcomed and was extremely pleasant to speak with. I had explained to her that i wanted to redecorate a couple of rooms in my home, but wasn't sure what i really was going to do and if i just wanted guidance or to have her take over the project. She said they would offer their services no matter what level of design that i needed. Upon leaving the center she said to call her anytime and she would be glad to help to any degree that I was comfortable with. Well, she certainly has been helpful and responsive when i call her! I have to admit that I became overwhelmed trying to do this project myself, so i called her again and she WAS there again to help. She has such a calming way of talking to you that she puts your stress level on low. Sondra and I are pretty close to completing my project, but i want to thank her for all her kindness. I will certainly be using Coastal Life Design in the near future. Never working with a designer I didn't know what i was doing, but i am so grateful for her understanding, ideas and follow through that i will be forever grateful for her help.

We just love it. It makes the whole room look larger and brighter. It's super easy to keep clean, The grab bar/shelf is perfect and the additional wall mounted grab bar is fantastic for my legs when getting in and out. If I position the mirrors just right on the medicine cabinet doors I can see all around my head while giving myself a haircut. No other mirrors are necessary. The new towel bars are super. The counter and sink are so easy to keep clean it's unbelievable.

Thank you, the cabinet will make it perfect.

Coastal Life Design provides excellent service that exceded all my expectations. Everyone on the team is very professional. Jennifer Strohl, who handled my account, has great ideas, is easy to work with, and very experienced in handling large, complicated remodling projects. She has a an excellent network of licensed subcontractors who performed their duties in a professional, careful manner. Jennifer's site manager, Bob Meehan, kept the project moving forward and supervised day-to-day work in the house. I definitely recommend Coastal Life Design for remodling projects of any scope and size.

We were looking to add a work station and additional storage space in the Condo we purchased in May 2018. Coastal Life design worked with what we were looking for. Although we initially wanted granite countertop, we were advised it would cost over our budget. They suggested butcher block and it came out great. Most places would not have advised this. Coastal design went within our budget, not trying to sell more expensive design. They kept in contact every step of the process,from showing us the layout on their computer,to picking out the hardware,to maki g sure the workmen were there. Even the workmen explained everything they were doing. Highly recommend Coastal Life Design!!!!
