We wanted to update our new (old) home and have more efficient use of existing space. We found Sandy Kritzinger (Collaborative Interior Design) on and she stood out among others. Sandy understood what we were trying to solve for, brought us creative solutions, and helped us envision things through her design boards that we may not have otherwise considered. The project with Sandy involved a family room and kitchen remodel, as well as working through plans for future phases of renovation/additions. She helped us pull together the architectural/construction, design, and decorating phases of our renovation. Sandy understood our desire to do some of the legwork and installation ourselves to help keep costs down. She reviewed our architect’s drawings for current and future phases; worked with us on the design, selections, and sourcing for the family room and kitchen; and plans for future phases/additions. We used some of the tradesmen and resources that Sandy recommended, and she kept us up to date on the status of each. They were good to work with and we could tell how well-respected Sandy is in the industry. We love the transformation to our home! With Sandy’s help, we have achieved the look and feel of a peaceful and welcoming rustic, lake cottage.Read More

We couldn't be happier with the outcome of our new home. Building a home is such a complex and taxing process. Sandy was instrumental in helping with the design and build our custom home. She was always there any time of day or weekend to help us move forward and assist us with every detail. Our builder had an aggressive timeframe, and making builder selections on time and within budget was a priority. Sandy also took the time to understand our preferred style. Her creativity and eye for detail made the entire project come together beautifully, and she managed to get ahead of as many of the supply chain issues as possible so that we could function in our new home right after we moved in. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and extremely organized and on point. We highly recommend Sandy for any project. We LOVE our new home!!Read More

My husband and I recently completed a full house reno on our 20 year old townhome as it was in desperate need of updating and modernizing. This was the first time we had done a reno and the task seemed quite daunting given all the work involved, decisions required and the fact that my husband and I are polar opposites on the design spectrum. We were very fortunate to work with Sandy as she made the entire endeavour seem easy as she shepherded us through the project from start to finish. She was able to take our disparate tastes and objectives to design around our eclectic art collection and collections from our travels to a create a wonderful haven. Sandy was very patient with us in addressing our many questions, guiding us around the design choices and coordinating with the contractor. We really loved the design boards she created for each room as it helped us visualize how everything would come together. In many instances, we took a leap of faith and deferred to Sandy’s design recommendations when were quite indecisive. We love the end result! Our home is truly a haven now, it makes so happy to look around and see the transformation. If we are ever so crazy to do another full reno, we definitely want to have Sandy as our partner! We highly recommend Sandy, she is a pleasure to work with and wonderful collaborator.Read More

Sandy is a great listener, adapts to people's preferences, and at the same time provides imaginative paths to consider. She led us through a kitchen design process that also touched other areas of our house, and made suggestions we would never have thought of. While Sandy has a great eye for coordination across rooms, her concepts are refreshing and treat each space uniquely. In addition to her design capabilities, my wife and I greatly appreciated the ease of working with Sandy. She has a very friendly manner and is responsive to the ideas preferences we expressed.Read More

Sandy was wonderful to work with from beginning of our house remodel project until the end. She was responsive to phone calls/emails/texts and always projected a calm confidence that made the whole process much easier to live through. She was professional and we could count on her showing up at our house whenever she was scheduled to. She was also flexible when I requested a couple changes to our original plan (which I asked for early enough in the process that things could still be changed out.) All in all, I would highly recommend Sandy and would be pleased to work with her again in the future.Read More
