TESTIMONIALS

Successful interior design is a collaboration between client and designer.

Peridot Interiors has pleased many of its clients, as evidenced in the following testimonials.


I worked with Leslie on a home we designed. The project was made much improved by Leslie's involvement. Our client was a CEO living out of the country. The project was somewhat complex in part because of our clients intermediant presence. When they were here much had to be accomplished. The clients expressed to me countless times how talented, organized, a quick study of their preferences and pleasure to be with Leslie is. I agree. I look forward to working with her as Periodot Interiors, she brings much to the design package.

When my wife and I started the ground-up restoration of our 1906 Southern Neoclassical home, we knew that we would need a very special interior designer to successfully drive the project. We wanted to substantially update all aspects of the interior while staying true to the heritage of the home. The home is in North Carolina, but we live in California -- so we needed someone who could also handle the distance challenges. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have found Leslie Stachowicz to drive the project. She not only crafted a superb and very appropriate direction but also made sure that everyone involved was in sync so there were no surprises. The result is a stunning interior that is not only impressive and true to the home's history but also extremely comfortable. Leslie always has a positive attitude and passion for her work that makes it a pleasure to work with her. We hope to have another chance to work with her again in the future!

We have a decoratve painting company and have had the opportunity to collaborate with Leslie over the last few years. She is extremely professional and creative. Leslie's design concepts are always innovative and intriguing. The ideas she brings to the table have given us the ability to create beautiful faux finishes that have complimented her design schemes. It is always a pleasure to watch her ideas come alive as a project progresses. Leslie is extremely professional, has the ability to meet her projected deadlines, is organized, and is truly a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend Peridot Interiors!

Hiring Leslie is like having your best friend decorate for you. Assuming your best friend has excellent taste.

Leslie took the time to understand our taste as well as our budget, and then she made choices that fit both. She has a wonderful eye.

I have had the pleasure of working with Leslie Stachowicz on three occasions over the past 10 years: my office condo in 2005, our lake house in 2007 and most recently, our primary home at Kure Beach in 2013. Each project was custom new construction and each exceeded my expectations. Leslie has a unique gift of listening to her clients and translating their design preferences and lifestyle into a successful design that is a true reflection of the homeowner. Leslie is also a pleasure to work with, is very creative and passionate about her work. She never pushes her own agenda but guides you through the design process skillfully and with great diplomacy. She has ready access to a talented list of vendors, craftspeople and suppliers so your project benefits from their skill and creativity as well. I would highly recommend Leslie for your interior design project, whether you need help selecting furniture or you're looking for a complete home design.
