In May 2020, major water damage occurred in our kitchen and family room which ultimately resulted in replacement of flooring, drywall, cabinetry, countertops and other repairs. So began the difficult and lengthy process of dealing with remediation, insurance and finding a quality contractor. Ultimately Coastal Life Design came to our rescue. Sondra was a joy to work with, persevering through the frustrating process of dealing with insurance. She also gave us excellent design advice while working within our budget. We were very impressed with the quality of workmanship as well as the courtesy of all sub contractors and employees who completed our project. We highly recommend Sondra and her team at Coastal Life Design for any of your construction needs.
Sondra at Coastal Life Design did an OUTSTANDING job with our home remodel. From the very beginning to the very end she was professional and very talented. She took the time to listen to me about my design desires and nailed it at every turn. She not only listened, but she actually incorporated all of my ideas into the project without arguing. This was no small job! We gutted the entire house, from top to bottom: floors, kitchen, bathrooms, driveway, landscaping, paint, trim, furniture, rugs, fixtures, etc. Sondra and her team delivered a high quality job on our multi-million dollar beach home and I would use her again without hesitation. I would highly recommend Sondra and her team to anyone who is in the market for a high quality professional remodel.
Say YES! After interviewing several other design companies, Coastal Life was a "no-brainer" choice! Sondra KNOWS how to narrow down choices, work within budgets, offer unique, sensible options, and PROBLEM SOLVE! I have a dream kitchen thanks to Sondra's impassioned expertise!
We’re thrilled with what feels like a brand new home for us thanks to the expertise and hard work of Sondra, the two Chrises (!) and the rest of the Coastal Life team. The design, project management, communication, execution and problem solving were all top notch – despite the fact that we were in Canada for most of the project. The team brought to life our vision for how our winter home would look and feel, and we cannot thank them enough. We highly recommend them!
Sondra and her team are incredible design-build professionals. She spent months working with us through multiple designs and executed a complex renovation on-time and on-budget. She is unflappable and solution-oriented. When the inevitable hiccups occurred she quickly developed a plan to work through them. Having gone through several renovation projects this was by far the best designed and executed.
Amazing!!! We are thrilled with the results, Sondra and team. Thank you for making our vacation home dreams come true!
Sondra from Coastal Life Design has superb knowledge to guide you to all the right choices for your updating. She will go above and beyond to oversee the service providers do their job correctly! I am Monica Newcomer, a Coldwell Banker realtor, I feel confidence in her to recommend her to my clients. I want happy clients!
Kitchen was gutted and rebuilt. Project included flooring 3 areas, raising ceiling, removal of popcorn + more. Took 8 weeks, not surprising considering scope. At 8 weeks project was COMPLETE and I am thrilled. Coastal Life begins new project for me tomorrow (6/25/18). I know the job will be done on time and to my satisfaction.
We had a great experience working with Jennifer Strohl at Coastal Life Design. She was very knowledgeable from the first meeting at her studio and coming to our home to design our beautiful master bath. The project took about 8 weeks to complete as the room was completely gutted. I would definitely recommend Coastal Life Design.
We love our new kitchen! The cabinets are gorgeous and so well made. The countertops are beautiful and easy to maintain. The changes that Sondra made to our layout have really maximized our storage space and made the kitchen actually feel bigger. Overall, extremely pleased with the final product. Many thanks to Sondra and the whole team!!!!
Jennifer is a great interior designer and knows what she is doing. Her an Bob did a great job updating my kitchen while staying in my budget. I'm happy with the way it turned out. The cabinet/countertop selection couldn't have come out any better. Will use them for repeat business in the future.
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
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.
Jennifer: 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!!!!
