DESIGN AND REMODELING REVIEWS
I have worked with Amy for over eight years. She has assisted with everything from major remodeling projects to simply accessorizing. Amy is unbelievably creative, coming up with ideas that I would have never imagined! She will customize the level of involvement to the needs of the client – doing everything from simply suggesting ideas to managing the entire project. She is very honest, organized, and efficient and her fees are very competitive. Client satisfaction is her primary goal. I would highly recommend her services. You will not be sorry!!

I first chose Amy Anderson as my designer several years ago when our home was destroyed by a major plumbing leak. It was a big job which included replacing cabinets, trim, counters, flooring, rugs, lighting, furniture, accessories, window treatments, paint – the works! It was completely overwhelming. Amy is the most efficient, organized and detail-oriented person I’ve ever known. She immediately calmed my fears by putting those great skills to work managing our complete house renovation. The results were spectacular, and I loved my new house. A few years later my husband and I decided to downsize a bit. He found a sad, neglected house, built in the early 90’s that had never been updated. I told him the only way I’d agree to leave my existing home was if he’d let me hire Amy again to oversee gutting and redesigning the new house. He agreed, and I am happy to say, the results are as spectacular as my first house with Amy. On both houses, she was able to help me determine the exact look I wanted and then helped me find the perfect products to achieve that look. Amy is so talented and easy to work with. I would never renovate or decorate another house without her!

Amy Anderson of Design Perspectives uses her Architecture/Engineering degrees to plan, design and implement beautiful, functional rooms reflecting current style. Over the last 5 years Ms. Anderson has remodeled and planned several rooms in two homes for my husband and I, and she is very easy to work with, professional in her approach, attentive to details, prompt with billing, and very accurate with her plans. We have not experienced any mistakes, re-dos, dissatisfaction, or conflict for any of the projects. Her approach is always positive and well thought out, and she will give you honest opinions for the transition of current design. Ms. Anderson works with your ideas and a budget that is desired by the homeowner, and tirelessly researches for the perfect color, fabric choice or accessory that will compliment the homeowner’s style. When a commissioned job is complete, I have been very pleased with the results! Amy Anderson of Design Perspectives is a fabulous find!

I hated my master bath. It was short on both space and style. Amy was the third designer I consulted and she was the only one with a vision. After helping me define the style that I wanted, she went to work measuring and getting a feel for the space. In short order, she delivered a detailed plan to give me everything I wanted. She helped steer me in the right direction with the tile, lighting, countertops..everything. More than once, I would hear, “well, from a design perspective..”. This meant that my design selections were veering from the contemporary look that I wanted. The end result was a bathroom that I love. The look is light, bright, and airy. Thanks, Amy!
Lauren M, Grapevine, TX
Amy is a true professional in her approach to design and renovation projects. She shares her knowledge so that client decisions are made with ease and comfort. Her project ideas are explained thoroughly but she is flexible to the desires of her client. Any responsibility she assumes is always completed promptly which facilitates success!!
Kay D, Dallas, TX
Amy has a great eye for design and remodel. Her attention to detail is exemplary and her supervision and communication with subcontractors is exactly what I needed. She is at the top of my list for my next project. Hired more than once. Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity.
Dicki L, Flower Mound, TX
Amy did a fantastic job redesigning our master bath. She turned our bathroom from an outdated “Waverly look” into a modern up to date, relaxing “spa” retreat. Amy listened to us and really delivered our list of wants and needs. She worked with our contractor to ensure our plan was completed to our specifications. The finished product was just what we wanted and I credit it to Amy’s design services. Amy really gives you personal attention and her great attention to detail makes all the difference. I would recommend Amy to anyone!
Carey E, Colleyville, TX
Amy is a fabulous designer!!! I needed to have new floors put in my home and called upon Amy for advice. Not only did she come up with wonderful ideas, she found me better products at better prices!! She is extremely helpful and has wonderful installers working for her. I would recommend her to anyone needing help!”
Jan M, Colleyville, TX
Amy helped design my new kitchen. It is fabulous. She was easy to work with, professional and very precise with her measurements. She brought great ideas to my contractor and helped me make selections that gave me the finished product that I had envisioned. The money I spent to have her help was well worth the price. We had done remodeling projects before and they always seemed to fall short of our expectations. She is wonderful!
Tina T, Southlake, TX
I’ve hired Amy twice in the process of hunting for a new home. The first was to consult her opinion of potential homes, and she provided great advice. The second was to help me select finishes and upgrades for a lake front condominium. Construction was completed, and the unit turned out absolutely beautifully, thanks to Amy’s help. If my circumstances lend themselves to future design services, I would confidently look for help from Amy again. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Good Value.
Don V, Flower Mound, TX
I loved working with Amy and all of her contractors. They were very thoughtful in keeping the rest of the house clean. They worked long and hard and were on schedule and cleaned up when they left. Amy was so helpful in the design process and meticulous in making sure things were done right.
Chris G, Colleyville, TX
We are indeed enjoying both bathrooms now. I appreciate all of your guidance, recommendations and oversight on the job – it did turn out beautifully! I will be in touch when we’re ready to tackle the next project. Thanks!
Terry E, Arlington, TX
Amy you are a fabulous designer and more importantly a wonderful person! I am so glad our paths have crossed and look forward to our working and fun friendship in the future….
Kim H, Trophy Club, TX
I have worked with Amy on numerous projects over the last 5 years including a complete remodel of my kitchen, staging for a home sale, painting projects and furniture reupholstering. She has consistently delivered in a timely and professional manner and I have found her contractors to be of high-quality and trustworthy. I would highly recommend Amy for your next project.
Sheila G, Colleyville, TX
Amy, thanks for all your help…I go back and forth over what I like best. The atrium light, the stairwell, the fireplace, etc., etc.!
Loving it. Rick and I have both commented that we have no regrets at all. We love all of the choices. Thanks so much for your help. It was really a very quick process. It seems long when you don’t have your kitchen, but really, that went off very smoothly and fast.
Rick and Brandi J, Colleyville, TX
We got home at 4am:(. But couldn’t wait to see the living room. I was NOT disappointed! I absolutely LOVE it and the way you arranged everything. I love it as much as my bedroom. Next the dining room:).
Debbie S, Colleyville, TX
I am tickled by your comment that “I should be so proud” of my choices in the bathroom and kitchen. YOU should be proud for guiding me and helping me make those choices. I sure couldn’t have done it by myself without major meltdowns. Thank you!
Ellen G, Dallas, TX
Amy, I think we forgot what the “before” looked like. We like the bathroom much better now. Thank you for guiding us through it and providing the quality workers to make it happen.
Scott K, Grapevine, TX
You did a great job! Love, Love my place – thanks to you!
My apartment looks GREAT. All my Southlake friends came by Saturday night after dinner and loved it and the art. I think they were surprised at how put together it is. Thanks so much for coming out on Friday. So much appreciate you begin a part of putting all this together!
I can’t believe how much we got done in such a short time. Woohoo!!! My sister and one of her daughters stayed at my house this past week/weekend and they were amazed at how awesome the drapes look and the warmth they bring to both rooms.
Kathryn C, Dallas, TX
Hi Amy, I just wanted to let you know I took a peek at the floors last night…they are absolutely gorgeous! From what I was able to see from the garage last night, I am extremely pleased with how they turned out. I am so excited to see them and walk on them, socks only, tonight! Thank you so much for all your help and guidance! Thanks,
Allice L, Lewisville, TX
WOW this is one reason I trust and use your skills. So precise, accurate & efficient. All is good, order in the morning no problem. Thank you sooooo much for working so hard for me!!
Lindy H, Trophy Club, TX
It exceeds my expectations. I’m so impressed. It’s beautiful… really amazing to look at. It does have the WOW factor and we aren’t even through yet.
Jesse C, Roanoke, TX
The theater looks amazing! I’m very happy with the paint choice and with the painter’s work. He’s a very nice guy and very professional. I can tell he takes pride in his work. This theater is going to rock!! Many thanks.

BUSINESS PARTNER/SUPPLIER REVIEWS
Amy, you were the first person I thought of to be part of Baker’s Market celebration to recognize those designers that we truly appreciate. You were on the top of my list, not because of the amount of purchases this year, but because I think you are an extremely talented designer who I have so much fun working with.
Baker Knapp & Tubbs Showroom, Dallas Design Center
PS— I submitted your company to the DHOME top designers for 2018!!! You deserve to make the list.
Tara P, Showroom Manager, Baker Knapp & Tubbs, Dallas TX
Seriously stunning Amy! I absolutely love it, what a gorgeous home! How beautiful! I love the before and after photo…it’s so different! Thank you for sharing and keep them coming! What a beautiful space! I love it all! My goodness you’ve been very, very busy!!!
Lindsey D, Baker Knapp & Tubbs, Dallas, TX
Wow, wow, wow! It looks amazing! You guys did a terrific job with it. I love the artwork, sconces everything. Great job! Congratulations!
Erin E, Baker Knapp & Tubbs, Dallas, TX
SO beautiful, Amy. WOW! Will forward these pics in to corporate. Thanks so much for sharing all of these. I seldom get to see the finished projects unless there is an issue, so this is really a treat.
Personally, I think I would have looked at that sofa and chair and just burned them both at the stake, but I guess that’s why I’m on this side of the business. You had a vision and saw it through to fruition. You really should think about getting these before and after shots published, as you’ve completely transformed the look of the room by updating the furniture upholstery and making other minor changes. But what a difference! Congrats!
OMG—Thanks so much for sharing! I never get to see the finished results, and this looks so beautiful. Clean and calming—just the way I like it! Can’t wait to show everyone on staff! Congrats on completing a beautiful project!
Kevin S, Kravet, Dallas, TX
Amy has been a client of Walker Zanger’s for many years. As a Showroom Associate, I have always enjoyed working with her and her clients in the showroom. Amy exudes professionalism and is an extremely detail oriented designer. It is detail oriented designers, such as Amy, that create the most beautiful spaces with our stone and tile. It’s always a pleasure to work with her and see her designs come to life.
Kelli B, Walker Zanger, Dallas, TX
That shower looks amazing! Good job once again😊
Kaitlin S, Fergusons, Grapevine, TX
Amy…once again, you’ve done an AMAZING job! I am especially fond of the Florko in silver that you have hanging. Absolutely spectacular, in every sense of the word. Thank you for sharing!
Jeffrey C, Arteriors, Dallas, TX
Love this Landscape, was a bit intimidating designing an awesome spring flower installation and adding to this amazing landscape, for the absolute best interior designer in DFW, check out her outdoor living concepts very impressive.
Aaron P, Terra Firma, Grand Prairie, TX
Thanks for sending me the BEFORE pics. It’s hard to believe it’s the same house. It’s impressive how you can look through what is there to see what it can be. Nicely done!
Steve W, Photographer, Southlake, TX
Working with Amy is a dream! Her creativity and enthusiasm is fueling! Her eye and ability to incorporate, redo/update pieces the client already owns adds personal touch to home. Her introducing original art was a first for us adding to each rooms Wow factor! Amy’s business skills are fine-tuned letting you know where you stand on the project, including contractor’s timeline! Thank you Amy for making this fun! YOU are awesome Lady! Your vision coming into reality is amazing in how it is beyond what your client expects!!!! So proud to have my art commissioned by YOU! For your fabulous projects! …I could go on and on…
Just got preview photo from Jennifer who is giddy with her completed new bath! KNEW you would do “classic WOW”! Eliminating that ‘heater’ is huge as is using traditional tiles! WOW! SO fresh AND CLEAN!!!! “from a design perspective’…accessories…can tell not you…:)) Thank you for helping my friend get her house to HOME! Thank YOU for taking such good care of Jennifer! She is really enjoying working with you and has great appreciation for your taste, suggestions and openness to her ideas!
Dan and Elaine cannot be any nicer or more fun…and their ‘behind the scene’ story of you staging, him seeing what you eliminated…and yet wanting to add it all to new home…her anxiety over idea of meeting ‘lady artist and commissioning work’…oh are YOU good or what Lady!!!????!!!! THAT is one of my favorite stories! YOU get it when the client doesn’t HOWEVER you can get them to that point…WOW again! Your line of “from a design perspective…” was priceless AND so valuable as you are always so sensitive and playful to clients. The chuckles and enjoyment go far beyond…and further still is what you give your clients…a better THEM! They LOVE what you see them as! Again, my hat off to you…so fun to watch and thank you so very much for including me to be a part of it! Blessings and beyond.
You did a great job, not only on house design but highlighting key shots that truly tease! I love seeing you reuse/repurpose some items! Think that may spark even a broader audience as many have items they do want to keep…you turn it into “home” AND showplace!!!! Carla’s house is just a treasure, period.
Deanna, Original Commissioned Art, Southlake, TX
As a professional painting contractor, who has worked for many design specialists, I can truly admire your work! Keep it up, gal!

COMMERCIAL CLIENT REVIEWS
Amy, I can’t stress enough of how impressed I was with all of your recommendations the other day–I’m very excited!
Brooks S, DDS
The Doctor was really impressed with your knowledge and attention to details. I told him that was the engineer in you! I definitely prefer using my own designer and I will get you involved in future projects. Thanks,
Pete T, General Contractor
Great job creating a welcoming environment for clients and vendors, and a warm and caring commitment to our employees.
Eric B, General Manager
I have worked with Amy on many projects, getting my properties brought up to date or staged for listing. With her expertise and advice she has helped me tremendously, and helped put multiple dollars back into my clients pockets. I highly recommend Amy for her keen sense of what buyers are looking for in today’s market, and for updating a home just because the owners want a fresh new look.
Nancy Dennis, President’s Circle, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, Southlake
Amy worked diligently with the client (my seller) and not only offered suggestions but implemented the plan and arranged for the leasing of additional items to further enhance this lovely home. She is tireless and creative and will work hard to get the job done. Year first hired: 2010. Top Qualities: Expert, On Time, Creative.
Nancy Croney, Owner, Croney Team, RE/MAX Masters
Amy, You did an exceptional job. The home looks totally updated and right out of a magazine. The tour went so well today. Everyone commented that the home showed beautifully. We are re-shooting photography at 9AM tomorrow! Thanks for your efforts!
Carol Russo, Vice President, Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, Southlake
Thanks so much for all you did for my sellers. Their home looks fabulous. They are very pleased and I am too!
UNDER CONTRACT IN 3 DAYS! NICE JOB AMY! BRENDA LOVES HER “NEW’ HOME. Thanks for all your efforts. I’m very happy to have you working with me as part of the team to get my clients homes sold quickly.
The home looks so much better. A big transformation. The media room looks like a media room now. The Nuttall’s were so pleased when they gave me the tour. Very Happy! They both thanked me for recommending you:) Tim said it was well worth whatever they paid…..he is very cost conscious but does recognize quality and the value of quality. Thanks again for your hard work.
The Sturgis home looks fantastic. Even the photographer complimented her on it.
The Sulot’s home looks so much better – the staging moved it from the tired past into the present with updated accessories, etc. Dining room and living room look great. Nice accents in the kitchen and bath. Memorabilia is hidden, too. Thanks so much for all of your efforts. The home is under contract now just 5 days after listing! Thanks for all of your staging expertise. Don and Cyndy are very happy.
Arlene Kerley, Realtor, Coldwell Banker, Colleyville
The Sale went great! 2 days, multiple offers, over list price. Still getting calls! I can’t get over how good that house feels now. What a transformation! Thank you! From the homeowner: Thank you for your awesome service on our house!
Alicia Young, Realtor, Century 21, Southlake
Julie and Sean were so pleased with all you did yesterday. Julie was absolutely thrilled and said she would recommend you to EVERYBODY!!
Kathy Glenn, Realtor, Century 21 Southlake, TX
We listed the house on the market last Tuesday and received an offer on Friday. We received fabulous reviews from the other agents about how nice the house showed. You did an amazing job!
Christen Horne Properties
We sold in one day, zero really, even before the MLS listing. The staging and furniture placement made all the difference.
Janice Gauntt, Century 21, Colleyville, TX
You are a treasure! I have been at the house all morning taking pictures, getting ready to put the home on the market. The home looks amazing, many, many thanks! Will you come to my own home next?
Pam Earnest, Century 21, Judge Fite
Thanks so much Amy!! You are AWESOME!! We are so happy with EVERYTHING you did. We had 2 showings yesterday. We have 2 full price offers this morning. That’s on you girl!! NICE WORK!! We are so fortunate to have met you.
Wes C, Colleyville, TX
We got three offers total yesterday – two over asking price. We accepted one – so we are in contract! Thanks so much for everything! Feel free to use us as a reference!
Trevor and Marlo W, Fort Worth, TX
Great news!! Full price offer with possible two other offers. So very happy thanks to you😊 How do you want to get your accessories? I will not need them now. I will miss them though. They sold my house along with your expertise😊
Debbie K, Grapevine, TX
Love it !! You do such AMAZING work. Some rooms you change only paint and one other item…..others you just move and remove a ‘few things’ and it’s like the ‘perfect decorating fairy’ came for one night and……..Presto … Architectural Digest did a photo shoot.
Dayna B, Hurst, TX
Five Stars: I needed to upgrade my house to get it ready to sell. My realtor recommended Amy and she was able to turn my house into a very nice looking “modern” home. She and her staff were very trustworthy and efficient. Amy has a great eye for color and style. I could never have done this without her. Thanks Amy!!
Marie C, Colleyville, TX
Thank you Amy! We learned a tremendous amount in just 5 hours. I will always remember many of the key points you taught us regarding staging. There is no doubt our house is more marketable as a result of your talents and efforts. We are officially under contract and our sales price exceeded asking by $5,000!! Thank you!
Ryan S, Fort Worth, TX
4 or 5 offers first week on market.
DeWayne S, Colleyville, TX
Richard was at the house this afternoon and Facetime’d me. The house looks wonderful! I was skeptical about painting the kitchen but it really looks good! Richard is generally a hard sell but he even said “it looks fantastic” and “she did a great job” several times during our conversation. So thank you for your hard work!!
Karen W, Colleyville, TX
Amy has staged my current home. She is currently redecorating my new home and I am very pleased with her and she is coming with very good ideas. I think what she is charging for her fees is very reasonable. So with her you will not go wrong.”
