Follow through and project management is where we shine. We work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure every step is taken to complete a smoothly run and successful project.

Client Experiences

“My project required demolition and gutting of a small apartment in an old building and required removing walls, rerouting gas lines and doing electrical work. My budget was small. I originally contacted Cynthia because I was impressed with her work and her affiliation with the board of ASID. I asked her to refer me to someone that would be interested in a small project. Luckily, she opted to work with me. The building engineer and condo board were very impressed with her, her crew was very talented, and she was wonderful to work with. She guided me to a much better result than I dreamed of and was patient and efficient. Most important, Cynthia has a good heart and Is professional and trustworthy.”

Client Experiences

“Cynthia had the task of turning 2 levels of a dark 70’s style home into a modern beautiful living space. After spending time with my husband and I to understand our likes and dislikes, she presented us with a proposal that was very favorable. Watching the transformation was amazing over the 6 weeks she and her crew worked and true to her word we completed in time for us to host Christmas for our family . Cynthia is a true professional, with so much love and passion for her craft. We highly recommend CCS Interior Design, our project was a completed success.”

-Harriet Farris

Client Experiences

“Cynthia is an exceptional designer. I have designed several places in the past, and she is, by far, the easiest designer to work with and the most patient. I wanted 2 things from the start: 1) The project to come within budget and 2) on time. She honored both, whereas my experience with other designers usually falls short. I am not the easiest person to deal with, and Cynthia always remained calm and professional. Any problem was handled quickly and without taking anything personally.

I also desired a very unique design. I am an artist and wanted a very unorthodox design. Cynthia killed it as a huge medieval chandelier hangs in the living room lighting a very distressed and industrial living room. Her friendliness and patience, and understanding of her clients make her exceptional at her job. Because of there excellent work, I have contracted her 2 more times for other projects. I highly recommend her.”

Client Experiences

“My husband and I were referred to CCS for assistance in choosing paint colors for our all off white, recently constructed home. Cynthia interviewed both of us to get an idea of our likes, dislikes, and preferences. She made recommendations for each room giving us several colors to choose from. Watching each room come to life was something akin to magical. We are most pleased with a few colors we would never have looked at if left on our own. The use of multiple colors in a room worked well for us. Additionally, she made recommendations for enhancing the overall appearance of the room – changing the covers of the light switch plates, tiling a bathroom wall.

We have received very positive feedback from our family, friends, and neighbors.
We recently rehired CCS to advise on my husband’s Mancave. The color schemes have given life to the areas and wow viewers. We are very pleased with the work.”

“My first project was the design of my bare basement. The tile selection and the bar design was phenomenal! A year later I called her back in to design my formal living room using a piece of artwork that I had just acquired. Cynthia and her team came in with innovative ideas for my space that provided the wow factor for my first floor. Her talented team was personable and professional in every stage of the project. I would definitely work with her again.”
