Love from our Clients

“Impeccable taste. Risa listened to what we wanted, always gave us options, and provided samples that reflected our thoughts as well as her own ideas and suggestions. Her patience and creativity saved us from making countless mistakes. She was professional and always provided choices to help keep us on budget. Fabulous sense of color, space, and understanding of different styles.  Risa has high standards for work quality and lots of resources. She worked on our entire house (interior and exterior) over an extended period of time, and we are still working together.  She always made herself available when we needed her.  I would highly recommend Dauer Design and would never work with anyone else! We had an excellent experience.”

“Risa helped me turn a completely non-liveable tear-down (that I couldn’t tear down and had to rehab…) into an amazing modern gorgeous space. She’s super talented and has an amazing eye for what will look amazing and what will fit well and suit any space. She can do super high end (her own home looks like a showroom!) and help people like me working on more of a budget. She’s patient and amazing and I would highly recommend working with her to anyone!!”

“Risa advised and assisted me with the renovation of a lobby in an older building. Her sense of design, knowledge of products and ability to tie it all together enabled me to complete the project to the delight of a large number of stakeholders. The transformation is remarkable, remained in the design style of the building, yet upgraded the aesthetic to a completely new level. Risa is a delight to work with, I can’t wait to work with her on my next project!”

“Risa was truly incredible – from start to finish. She worked with us to understand our style and our budget and then exceeded all expectations. She held our hand throughout the process and was always available when we needed her. I would absolutely use her again.”
– Ari Segal

“While I knew I wanted a new look for my family room, I didn’t know what I really needed to do until Risa gave it a total makeover! My husband insisted on a reclining sofa and I was worried that it would look modern. Risa was conscientious and respectful of the budget we set and made wonderful suggestions and at the same time making sure the look fit my aesthetic and needs. We love our new family room!”
