Testimonials

I have been a client of Eclectic Home for nearly 10 years. I was initially drawn in by their vast array of uniquely curated items in the store and quickly signed up for my first design project with them. It started with a master suite overhaul in our 100+ year-old New Orleans home and I knew instantly that I would be a customer for life. Penny and her team are extraordinary in their ability to truly connect with their customers, getting to know us in such a deeply personal way that drives a design tailored for our personality and lifestyle. It’s what makes each of her designs feeltotally customized and original while still staying true to her aesthetic.

The upside surprise to this connection is the personal relationship we have built over the years. Since our initial project, we have worked with Eclectic Home to redesign more bathrooms, a kitchen and a complete exterior transformation across two different homes, but perhaps the most special project was designing the nursery for our daughter. That project was so important to us and the room they created captured all our love and emotions in the most beautiful way. There is no one I would have trusted more to execute that for us.

Penny and her team are supremely professional and truly go above and beyond to create the most individualized spaces for their clients. It’s their dedication to excellence and deep trust they work so hard to establish that keeps customers like me coming back through the years, the houses and the life changes.

Penny has decorated two homes for us – one in New Orleans and one in Austin. She and her team are exceptional. She listens to her clients and effectively blends her superb taste and style with our desires. She proactively communicates and manages all phases of the design and installation. We couldn’t be happier with her and her work.

Penny has great taste! She was a joy to work with. I had hired her several years ago to select some window treatments, furniture, and fabrics for a small project on my previous home. I was so happy with the results, I asked her to work on our new historic home that we purchased last fall which needed an entire overhaul. She did all the design work for the major rooms, totally redid one bathroom, and was involved in some creative renovations. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. She was able to take the furniture and art that we had and make everything seem new again in a new setting. Her new furniture, fabric, tile, window treatment, and paint selections were fantastic. We were also very pleased with the tradesmen she used-they did great work. Also, her prices were fair-there were no surprises. She was very good about dealing with my budget and helping to make decisions about where to spend and where to save. We also had a general contractor doing much of the renovation in the house and she was able to work with him and manage her tradespeople along with his. If I had to name one thing that makes Penny a great design professional-it is her eye and creative spirit. She created a home environment for us which is truly breathtaking but also comfy. Our house is mid 19th century creole cottage in the French Quarter and Penny was able to come up with a design plan that respected the history and architecture of the home while integrating our existing art and furniture. We need some additional design work done in our guesthouse in the future and I plan to call Penny and Eclectic Home again. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

Penny was recommended to me by a close friend. After seeing pictures of my friend’s newly renovated home, I knew I wanted to work with her and the experience kept getting better and better! After my first conversation with Penny I felt like I had found a new best friend. She is delightful, fun and extremely talented. The concept design and renders looked exactly like the final project. I was so pleased that my living room redo, led to a kitchen and bathroom renovation as well! My home is fabulous!

I have been a client of Eclectic Home on 10 projects (commercial and residential) and I have never been disappointed.  I am continuously told how amazing the projects look and feel. Penny and Casi continue to demonstrate their expertise and are always a pleasure to work with.  Eclectic Home always delivers timeless results!

I am writing this letter to thank you and the entire Eclectic Home team, for the services you’ve provided to me renovating and decorating both my penthouse condo (2014) and my Lakeshore home (2016 – 2017). The work you did in both spaces is absolutely outstanding and I couldn’t be more pleased.

Totally redecorating a 2000 square foot penthouse was no small feat. The colors selected for paint, wallpaper, etc. are perfect. The furniture selections completely captured the sophisticated look and feel I wanted. I especially appreciated you taking the time to understand how I wanted to utilize the space as a respite from the hectic nature of my career. The fact that we communicated remotely via email and phone for over 3 months really made working with you easy and efficient. The software you use is state of the art and made me feel like I was on site, at the project, every step of the way. No one can believe that I only saw you and the penthouse, in person, at the start of the project and at the project completion 3 months later. The success of the penthouse project made Eclectic Home the only choice for my full house renovation in 2016-2017.

A 5000+ square foot full house (including yard and swimming pool) renovation project can seem overwhelming for most homeowners but, I never felt that way working with Eclectic Home. Your ability to effectively manage contractors, suppliers, deliveries, etc. is unsurpassed. Your unique talent and ability to design/decorate AND really understand construction enables you to give your clients a broad perspective on what is actually possible in a renovation project. You took the vision of what I wanted in my home and developed a game plan to achieve everything on my wish list. Subsequently, my home is simply fabulous!!! The before and afterphotos are incredible. You really understood what was possible and made it happen. I can’t thank you enough.

I have been honored to personally recommend you for two additional projects for friends. Both sets of friends are extremely pleased with your work. You guys are the best.

From the moment I met Penny and Casi, I knew they were the interior designers for me. I felt like we had known each other for years, and we had a true collaborative relationship throughout the entire design process. When the “big reveal” happened after installation, I was wowed beyond belief. I am absolutely in love with the refreshed look of my home, my sanctuary. It was a true pleasure to work with the entire Eclectic Home team.

—S. Pisani

Penny, Casi and the team of pros at Eclectic Home literally rescued my new-construction home in New Orleans.   A brief background, I was working full time in Connecticut when I turned over the entire project to Eclectic Home.  I only had one condition: “Don’t make me work too hard”.   Their technical mastery of construction and design along with their collaborative relationship with the builder, turned my home into a masterpiece.   I was so pleased when shots from my home were featured in Luxe magazine – a testament to the extraordinary efforts of Eclectic Home.

—J. Jackson

Penny and Casi of Eclectic Home are an absolute joy to work with. From the moment I met them, they were incredibly warm and friendly… not sales-y in any way. They took us around the store and observed our reactions to the various pieces, gathering our high-level tastes quickly. Thus far, I’ve worked with them on three projects all over the country and have been ecstatic with the results of each one. They are amazing at matching pragmatism with creative flexibility and merging their client’s personal flavor seamlessly. They’re great at making sure I am constantly updated and feel comfortable throughout the design process all the way through installation. I will be working with them for as long as they do their thing!
