Where to start when I think of Sheryl Bleustein, interior designer?
First and foremost is her talent and creativity. Hiring an interior designer is always a very difficult experience. So when you find one who has a fertile imagination and makes you suddenly aware that that empty space you are asking her to turn into your house will in fact be a place comfortable, considerate of your life-style and a place that you will awaken to every morning and marvel at how exquisite it is, then you know you have found the right person. She has designed such a place for me and my husband in our new apartment.
Then there is Sheryl’s respect and appreciation for what you are coming to the new place with. She was the only designer, and I repeat the only designer, whom we interviewed that did not want us to throw out all of our old furniture, furniture which over the years we have come to love, and I can safely say that she incorporated maybe 70% of what we already had. In other words, this is not a designer who thinks about the commission she will make with every piece of furniture she buys. It was so refreshing to meet a designer who admired the work that our previous designer did and was more that willing to use so much of his furniture choices in our new home.
This brings me to the next outstanding quality of Sheryl and that is her concern with your budget. Before we got started, she asked what we thought we were willing to invest in decorating the home and she was always concerned with us coming in budget which actually meant at times choosing other items which were less expensive than the ones we originally wanted but which worked just as well, if not better. And I can safely say that we are almost on target with our budget and if it does go slightly over it is because we have asked for other things which were not included in the original design.
If you are working with Sheryl, you are also working with the nicest and most professional people. Every vendor and worker that we have worked with was a total delight.
And here’s the best part, when we finally move in, Sheryl wants us to disappear because when the move takes place, she will unpack and set up the house for us so that when we finally open our front-door the apartment will be totally livable. Hard to believe but true.
Therefore, from start to finish, what could be a stressfully fraught experience, is a total joy.
It has always been my dream to have my living room, which is the centerpiece of our house, to be redone by an interior decorator. Unfortunately, I have had a couple of bad experiences with interior decorators in the past, and I truly believed I would never find anyone to help me. In February 2017, I tried again and searched on Houzz. Within moments of posting my comments, Sheryl Bleustein called me and arranged for a meeting as soon as possible. When I reviewed her website, I was overwhelmed by how beautiful her designs were. But, I was also intimidated. I have a modest home and I had a modest budget. Sheryl, however, never made me feel like my home was any less worthy than any of her million dollar projects. She was sensitive to my budget, my family’s needs, and my concerns. She has an extraordinary sense of proportion, a gift for picking paint colors, and an eye for selecting beautiful but practical furniture. Sheryl took some of my existing pieces of art and made them look brand new. The entire journey has been a joy because she is a joy to be around. Her enthusiasm is infectious and you can tell she loves what she does. I can now boast that I used the best decorator in the business!
You are so awesome and such a pleasure to work with! Thank you for making this whole renovation painless!!
I am very well pleased with Sheryl’s work. She has great taste, she has a fabulous work ethic and she has a wonderful imagination. Her contractors are highly skilled, show up when they’re supposed to and do superb work. I highly recommend her.
There is no denying Sheryl Bleustein’s talent. It is truly extraordinary. But what sets her apart from most other designers is that during the entire process, and that means from beginning to end, she takes all the head-aches out of designing a new project. Not only does she have the finest and most patient people working for her but she is literally on the job until the very end. In other words, you can leave for a vacation and when you return your apartment or home will be ready to move into, which is exactly what we intend to do. Other designers just want to buy and buy and buy but Sheryl respects ones attachment to furniture one has lived with and has no problem incorporating them into her design. In other words, for Sheryl money is not the issue but what is the issue is making the client happy. I must simply say that working with Sheryl has been and continues to be a total joy.
I absolutely LOVE working with Sheryl Bleustein! She is an extremely talented professional who is personable, friendly, and willing to work within my budget.
Her creative ideas, attention to detail, and level of quality is top notch! Thank you, Sheryl, for turning my house into a home!
You are the best!!
Good afternoon Joe,
It was so nice to meet with you and Sheryl on Tuesday.
Unfortunately I was making wrong choices with both unites.
I am now allowing Sheryl Bleustein to work with you. Please consult with her and copy me on everything. Also, Please provide access to Sheryl for both condo units. Sheryl will follow up with you on all final changes.
Thank you as always for your
Sheryl is a brilliant designer and has great taste. We are thrilled to have used her. We recommend her fully. She is always there when you need her.
Sheryl did an excellent job on our condo. The work was done professionally, on time and within our budget. We would definitely hire SBI again.
We are feeling finished for now. We LOVE the way the house looks. It’s beautiful. You did a great job pulling it together.
Now we are excited to just relax and enjoy it! Thank you.
Interiors By SBI came to my home, completely transformed it and made it extraordinary. I told Sheryl that I wanted my new home to be elegant, comfortable, and to have a pop of red throughout. She designed it with an “outside-of-the-box” approach and my family is thrilled with the results. The timeless design is fresh, unique and personally tailored to my tastes. Her team is professional, reliable, and extremely talented.
Sheryl is the hardest working and most patient individual, blessed with the talent, ability and resources to create a space that is elegant, has quality and character and will remain current far into the future. Her staff of carpenters, painters, framers, and contractors are equally highly trained and talented professionals. Sheryl personally directed our design project from flooring to painting, to the selection, layout and delivery of furniture and accessories. I can’t say enough about how smoothly our project proceeded from start to finish and highly recommend Interiors by SBI for your future interior design projects.
I love love our new home!!! Thank you a trillion times!! Our home is your home always!
Regarding the paint colors in our new home, you had asked if we wanted to approve it first. The answer is unequivocably no. My wife Cheryl said you pick it and we trust you implicitly. As I keep telling you if we don’t trust you by now we will never trust you. You have been a lifesaver. Whatever you choose will be beautiful.
Hi Sheryl it’s Nate from Palm Beach Capital. Just wanted to tell you we get lots of compliments on our office. And I wanted to say thank you. If you ever need a reference we would be happy to give one. Thanks again.
Jack just walked in after finishing work and said:
“The outdoor room looks particularly beautiful.”
Woo Hoo I always say, “If you can please Jack,
you can please anyone!”
Terrific. That’s wonderful. Over all these years of being a homeowner, we have never had someone complete a punch list this efficiently and rapidly. You win the prize!
Just got home…I’m in love!
Sheryl has provided us with the highest quality service! We are thrilled with our end result and would highly recommend her!
She is highly knowledgeable. Full of great ideas. Knows how to stay on my budget. Goes right to the source to get things done in a flash. Very easy to deal with. Her taste level is beyond anyone I have ever come in contact with. Sheryl lays out everything so that I can visualize it before she even starts. It make me feel confident that I know what everything is going to look like before she even starts. If I don’t understand something she is ready to explain what her plan is. No surprises. It just turns out perfect right before your eyes. I could not ask for a better experience.
Me Too!! I Really enjoy working (and talking) with you! You are fabulous!!
Thanks for everything!!
I have had the pleasure of working with Sheryl bringing to life her vision and ideas of the exquisite window treatments she creates for her clients.
Sheryl’s work has consistently shown a level of creativity only seen from the great contemporary interior designers of our time, and she is constantly pushing the envelope.
It is always a thrill seeing her clients reactions when they first see their finished spaces.
Sheryl Bleustein had done a remarkable job remodeling our Naples condominium. And, she did the work without us present. We were wonderfully surprised to see the finished product. I had originally hired another firm to handle the project. I quickly discovered that those decorators did not understand the modern style I was looking for. I had even told them to look at Sheryl’s website, as that is exactly what I was looking for. I finally got wise and decided to go with Sheryl instead. We met with her once at the condo and she took it from there. One important thing to note is her excellent communication skills. The prior decorating firm principal that I met originally handed off my work to a very inexperienced person and that person would not return my calls or emails. Sheryl, on the other hand, immediately returns calls and emails. If you run into small problems, like you do with all projects, she keeps you informed and together you come out with a workable solution. I will use Sheryl for all future remodel engagements.
“Sheryl has consistently proven to be a consummate professional. Her creativity in design notwithstanding, the professional elements that she provides to a project are impeccable. Her willingness to listen and evaluate the client’s needs ultimately make everyone associated with the project a winner.
She has the creative genius to overcome design challenges inherent in any project and somehow play them into a feature rather than camouflaging them.”
Sheryl is a very professional, dedicated, effective and efficient person. She is extremely proactive, her energy is wonderful and aims to please the client. I really appreciate working with a person that is highly educated in design and has a team that will do an excellent job. Thank you SBI!
Sheryl is extremely talented in her design recommendations. Not only does she know design but also understands the impact on a remodeling job that affects the engineering and integrity of the existing infrastructure. i would highly recommend her.
Innovative design. Use of accent colors against the serene comfortable crispness, of every space, is a treat to the viewer.
Sherryl’s portfolio will be at the top of my list, she reveals her passion for all projects ensued.
