At its highest and best, an interior conveys a visual narrative about the life and interests of its owners.
At Willetts Design & Associates we are earnest in helping clients realize their deeply-held vision of home, creating spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing, tactile and welcoming but also effortless in their sense of ease.
Philosophy & Approach
We believe that each space is a tangible expression of the individuals who live there. That every person’s concept of home is subjective and deeply personal.
I was very impressed with Dorothy: She's very discerning and methodical, and was great to work with. Dorothy has a good sense of what you like and finds a way to integrate that into the vision. We found her to be very authentic and sincere about her desire to satisfy us as a client. She is so good with people, and worked well with both me and my wife (who have different tastes)... Dorothy is very open to being collaborative and I personally like her as well!
I’ve been privileged to work with some of the top 100 architects and interior designers in the world; Dorothy ranks right up there with all of them. She and I have worked on projects in the Madison Club and elsewhere. Her innovation, communication, drawings and documentation are exceptional. And her execution is flawless.
Dorothy has incredibly creative ideas ... I really like her energy and I found her to be very fun to work with. She pulled all the details together and gave the client far more than what they anticipated!
Dorothy has been delightful to work with. So upbeat and patient ... she is both personal and personable. Always extremely professional, with great ideas, and through it all she is having fun. We asked for a referral for a "get it done" person, and Dorothy has truly been a terrific find. She worked very closely with the builder on the remodel and literally transformed the home’s interior … spectacular. We had to work remotely for much of the project, so we needed a designer who was reliable as well as capable (with Dorothy, you can add adorable!). Everything was where it was supposed to be, when it was supposed to be there. Her resources and subcontractors were wonderful; she did a lot of design and worked closely with the fabricator to ensure everything was done right. It was a happily ever after story. We enjoyed her as much as a friend as a designer, and very much look forward to doing more work with her.
Dorothy is always a pleasure to work with. Her positive attitude and desire to meet the client’s goals along with great design is very important to me. Working with Dorothy helped us accomplish our goals within the timeline, with a high level of design and craftsmanship. Every client is different and many designers don't listen to their needs. Dorothy listens and then captures those ideas, along with her vision, which is wonderful.
