Testimonials

It was time for a change so we gutted our family room and started from scratch. Ellen’s skill and talent were immediately apparent and a trusting relationship was formed. I was delighted how she transformed the space. It is particularly amazing to me how the beautiful muted colors and new upholstered pieces Ellen selected, now mixed with the tables and collectibles we wanted to keep, turned the room into a warm inviting retreat. The room arrangement is cozy and the atmosphere created “hugs” everyone who enters. I unequivocally recommend Ellen Cohen as a superior and talented professional.IMG_2219 edited

When I decided to bring color into my bland, white-walled house, there was only one designer I considered. Of course, I selected Ellen Cohen after seeing a number of homes that she “rescued”. A delight to work with, she blended a variety of colors I would never have chosen on my own. My bedroom is a vision of serenity and if any one told me to “go to your room” I would gladly comply!! To use one of Ellen’s favorite descriptions – the living room absolutely “pops”. The accessories she added, such as pillows and floral arrangements, were unique and in all cases absolutely perfect finishing touches. I couldn’t be more pleased; the results exceeded my expectations.

Dear Ellen,
Thank you so much for putting so much of your heart and talent into transforming my home and office.
I especially love my living room. I could never imagine it would look so lovely with the same furniture. By re-arranging the placement of the pieces and adding accessories, it is truly spectacular. Friends have told me it looks like it came out of a magazine! Your assistance in picking out wall paint and wallpaper took the anxiety out of making a dramatic change for the better. Even my husband loves the darker walls despite his usual insistence on white walls. My office looks more inviting and it’s a pleasure to work in my new environment
Ellen, I would recommend your services without reservation. I feel truly blessed to have found you.

Ellen, this afternoon I put more books in the office bookcases and I actually fell asleep on my chaise! My daughter said that my office really feels like a room that fits me now. She’s right! Working with you these past months to completely renovate and re-design my office, I am so appreciative of your insights and your determination that this office be my special retreat. I love the new glass flowers and vase! They look great, and I love my wall! When I see those words up there, it is such a confirmation of what I truly believe. Now my office is complete! I am so glad that you were able to see beyond something that I could not. Again, thank you!

My husband and I started using Ellen Cohen in our Philadelphia home over 2 ½ years ago. She came in, looked around and rearranged our living room where it looked like a different home. We loved the look. She then did some rearranging in our dining room, and it looked fantastic.
A few years later we moved into an over-55 community. We used all of our furniture from our previous house, which Ellen arranged. Ellen had the walls in the living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom painted. The colors on the walls are fantastic and no one can believe we didn’t get all new furniture. She is darling to work with and has a wonderful eye. I have personally recommended Ellen to several families in our new community and I will continue to praise her ability. In our eyes she is the best!

My husband and I bought our dream house, feeling excited, and at the same time overwhelmed. Friends of mine said to call Ellen and I wouldn’t be disappointed. That was one of the best calls I ever made. She helped us decide what to take with us. She helped me realize I like color and I need to be happy in my home. It’s been fun working with Ellen. She has never pushed her ideas or taste on me. For the first time in my life I am living with furniture, accessories and colors which are pleasing to me. Now I’ll have company over anytime.

Dear Ellen,
My husband and I want to thank you for all of your assistance over these past few months. Moving and down-sizing can be overwhelming, but with your help a difficult situation was made enjoyable and definitely less stressful.
I can remember our first meeting—will this furniture fit? Your detailed graphing of our new home and your templates of the furniture allowed us to visualize our new home with our present furnishings. The next step for me was the scariest—decisions and selections! Once again, you guided us through, step by step. There is not one choice I would change. We are so pleased with everything, especially the kitchen selections.
I don’t think either of us will forget that very cold December morning when we met the electrician to discuss the electrical placement for our home. With your help, we have lights where we need them and switches which don’t interfere with picture walls. Our neighbors are very jealous!
Over these last few weeks we have hung pictures, displayed our numerous “things” and of course, found a wall for our oriental screen. Our home looks as if we have lived here for years and made numerous purchases, but the truth is—we have done neither. It was accomplished because of you and all of your wonderful knowledge and ideas!
Ellen, we will always be grateful to you for helping us create a home which reflects our style of living.

Dear Ellen,
I am so happy with all you did to make our home so fabulous. Your unique way of using our favorite things in new areas allows us to enjoy them even more than we did before. You are so talented. You have a wonderful way of listening to our ideas and then making them into realities. Your great eye for color encouraged us to “splash” it throughout our home. It is an “accessory” that gives warmth and a special flavor to every room. When I speak of “we,” I mean Mark, too. He is as happy and pleased as I am with all you arranged and designed for us. You gave our home pizzazz. Each room has its own unique flair. As always, you were very caring of our feelings for each space—helping us to see all the possibilities available to us.
I smile as I look at our old and new treasures . . . from the cabinet you created for my mom’s teacups to our bedroom pillow bouquet holder . . . from the way you re-arranged our living room and den to the wonderful new purchases we made . . . from our new window creations to all the new colors throughout . . . You treated our home as you would your own.
We will be eternally grateful for all you designed and created for us . . . and there’s still more to come. You are one-of-a-kind—the best kind.

Ellen,
I wanted to let you know how brilliant you are. George finished the kitchen and the colors are wonderful. Everyone who comes in says it looks bigger, too. You were right (as always) in all your choices.
