Words can't quite express the look on my face when I entered my house after Loria finished installing my window treatments and bedding. Loria is so talented, creative and most of all easy to work side by side. Her attention to detail overwhelmed me. It is not easy to be always on the go and yet work on house projects. Loria made my whole experience so enjoyable! She is so efficient with the time she spends with you. I would highly recommend Loria to help decorate your home from as little as one pillow to pull all the colors in a room, adding window treatments to make a room feel warm and beautiful or to change your bedding and make it feel and look like you spent a fortune when you didn't because Loria always finds a way to help you stay within your budget. Working with Loria has been such a great experience that I look forward to the next project, hopefully in Spring. Debbie Foster
I have enjoyed working with Loria for several years on window treatments throughout my home. She most recently completed a project combining a Hunter Douglas product with a custom valance that looks fantastic and really pulled my family room together. She makes the selection process painless and is great at giving design suggestions. Loria is organized, efficient, filled with creative ideas and overall a pleasure to work with.
I started working with Loria two years ago when I needed window treatments for our newly built home. Since that time she has helped me with a wide range of decorating ideas, from something as simple as picture frames for my boys rooms, to custom designed furniture for my our sunroom. She is also wonderful to work with, always flexible and available. Her expertise has helped me create a warm and inviting home that I love.
I've been working with Loria for the past few years and have been very pleased with every project she has worked on for me! From something as small as new pillows to completely re-doing a bedroom, she is flexible with budget, ideas and time. Always looking forward to my next project with her!
I would like to thank Loria for all her help on selecting and designing window treatments for our recently remodeled home in South Naperville. She was the only designer that I spoke with over a period of several months that listened to what we had in mind for our window treatments. We really wanted simple treatments that had a new look and a classic feel, but not too heavy to block the natural sunlight on our new windows. Her designs were exactly what we had in mind and the fabrics looked great with the other fabrics in the room. Her expertise was extremely helpful during the process, because I was not familiar with current window treatment trends or fashions. The treatments all look so fabulous and really tie the room space together now. We recently remodeled many of the rooms in our home and needed many window treatments to go with the new look. Loria was the not the first person I had talked to about doing the work, but she was the only designer who listened to me and came up with designs I wanted.
Her interior design help in pulling together the window treatments, accent pillows, artwork and floral arrangements was almost the best part of working with her. I was thrilled when she pulled two beautiful pictures from Nona Jo's to bring to the house that looked perfect in the family room. I have never had a designer that has been so responsive, organized, and gone the extra mile for me. I really appreciate everything she did to help with paint color, selection of fabric, treatment design, and selecting home accents. I have really enjoyed working with her for many months, but not just because she does wonderful work, but because she is able to make her clients feel like they are the most important client she has. That is something that is hard to find anymore.
I look forward to working with her on a few more projects and telling all my friends about her business and her work. Working with her has helped me see that it is the little details that make all the difference.
I want to thank Loria for the beautiful transformation of my kitchen. I'm in awe of how she captured my style and spirit. I'm incredibly happy with the results and cannot wait to continue with the rest of the house. When she came for the installation she wanted me to be surprised and have everything set perfectly before I walked through the door. I not only loved the experience of working creatively with her...I now consider her a friend.
The Naperville Garden Club had chosen my house to be on the annual "Cup of Cheer" house walk. Due to construction delays and a family illness, my house was not decorated at all yet. In 4 months, 1500 people would be walking through my house, and I felt completely overwhelmed. Enter Loria!! Her outstanding work, reasonable prices, fantastic ideas, and unbelievable efficiency were beyond my expectations. The entire house (including the basement theater room, 3rd floor, and a bonus room) was completely decorated and ready for the house walk. It looked absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend Loria -- you will be very happy with the results and have a great time working with her too!
Loria's expertise has helped us to design the "grown up" Master Bedroom Suite that we have always dreamed of. She not only created beautiful window treatments, but she helped us to pick colors, accessories, furniture, and everything else you could think of! She even shopped for us. (Something we hate to do!) We loved what she did so much that we had her help spice up our powder room and change the nursery into a "big kids' room".
My experience with Loria was great! I've done several rooms with Sew Simple Designs and every time Loria helped me select the right fabrics, coordinate colors and choose styles that work in the room and compliment the rest of the house. Her attention to detail in things such as trims, piping and pleats was very evident. She spent as much time with me as I needed and, when redecorating my daughter's room, even consulted with her to make her feel a part of the process! Her finished products are beautiful and I get so many compliments!
Thank you Sew Simple design for the Custom Window treatments, pillows, and accessories for my Living Room, Family Room, and Kitchen. Your quality workmanship, attention to detail and timeliness are amazing. My favorite is the window seat; it is exactly what I wanted. I will recommend your services to family and friends.
Loria Hartman is a very creative, organized and reliable businesswoman. Her designs are not only beautiful but personal. She listens to what you want and creates the designs you have requested down to the smallest detail. I had a lot of straight lines in my built-in bookcases. Loria suggested softening the lines by inside mounting soft/relaxed roman shades into 6 of the windows in the living room of my "arts and crafts" style home. We also added pillows in coordinating fabrics and trims to compliment the decor and tie in the fabrics of the custom window treatments. In the bathroom we banded and tassel trimmed a flat roman shade with a scalloped bottom. Sew Simple Designs will make your house into the home you have been imagining.
I would highly recommend Loria Hartman and Sew Simple Designs. I absolutely love the window treatments she designed for my kitchen -- the end product was even more beautiful and suited for my space than I had hoped! Loria has a great eye for design, color and a customer's personal style. She is also very creative, always coming up with new ideas to make her designs more personal and unique for the customer. Loria is also very professional, timely and friendly -- making the whole experience even more pleasurable!
