CLIENT ENDORSEMENTS"Beryn Hammil is a gem! I discovered her online when we moved to Napa in 2006. What attracted me was her tag line, "Creating spaces that people love coming home to every day." Beryn changed the original, stilted look of our home to one of warmth and comfort. And recently, she revamped our outdated kitchen to one with style and class. We just love the changes that she made!"
"Beryn's work is amazing! She listens and a vision begins to unfold that results in a living space that suits you and that you can relax into every time you step into the room. We think Beryn is the best designer that someone could work with and feel very fortunate to have found her."

"I've had a long-standing relationship with Beryn, working with her since she began her career in the design world. I completely trust her and trust her taste. I've worked with several decorators in the past and I think Beryn is the best. She's extremely talented and has a fabulous eye for what works. She brings the work in on time, is organized, professional, and stays on budget. She listens to her clients and works closely with them. She's totally dedicated to each and every project. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beryn to anyone."

"I have been working with Beryn for several years and I always found the experience to be delightful. She always comes in on budget, guides me to sound decisions, and leaves me with a room I love."
"Beryn has a great eye and comes up with creative solutions that work within budget. She really gets the job done and knows how to listen. I highly recommend her."

"I worked with Beryn on two houses in Lake Tahoe, each with its own character and its own set of challenges. Beryn showed me how I could turn the ranch-style home into an Arts and Crafts masterpiece. She had creative ideas for extending the theme I chose and saved me from making some really wrong decisions. The place looks amazing.
"On the second home I wanted a "Tahoe modern" feel. The house needed a new floorplan, new kitchen, bathroom, new everything. And we were on a budget. Again Beryn helped me make some critical choices that took the house from "frightening" to casual elegance without breaking the bank. The home won "Home of the Week" from South Tahoe realtors.
"One great thing about working with Beryn is that we were able to work together without having Beryn in Lake Tahoe. She's great at using technology in creative ways which help speed the process and cut costs too.
"I heartily recommend Beryn for your project. Her enthusiasm, great ideas, versatility, and excellent taste will help you get more than you expect out of the process. Believe me, you will get your money's worth!"

"Beryn always pointed me in the right direction while remaining completely professional. She stayed a step ahead of me by anticipating my next set of questions, and saved me money by preventing me from making expensive mistakes in design and decor. Despite the extensive scope of the work being done on the house, she kept the project within the designated budget. As well, I appreciate her integrity. Ultimately, she made my house a home!"
"Beryn Hammil helped me transform my home in phases over a four year period. She listened to what I wanted and needed, and because my taste varies widely, she quickly ascertained that I did not so much need idea generation as focus and disciplined direction to create a cohesive design. And when I faltered in maintaining the vision, she tactfully bolstered me. Beryn's a great partner whose expertise I could rely on. When my budget was a concern, she provided an array of good solutions. And always, the crews and resources she brought together and managed were as meticulous as she is. Hiring Beryn was an excellent investment in quality, and she saved me from making big mistakes! Now we're starting an addition to my home with the needs of the next 20 years in mind."

"Not only do I recommend Beryn to my clients for home design work, but I've worked with her on my own home. When it comes to design, Beryn's reputation is impeccable, and her talents are many. She's a true professional who is creative, organized and pays close attention to the financial part of the project. Finding someone with Beryn's great taste, honesty, and integrity is a dream come true."

"My husband and I have had an ongoing relationship with Beryn Hammil over a period of time while building a new home and decorating the interior. Beryn has excellent resources and ideas, responds quickly to messages, follows through on all details, stands behind her client when difficulties arise, is competitive in pricing and billing, and is completely honest. Also, Beryn has a very realistic sense of design."

"My wife and I worked with Beryn Hammil to both design the remodel and decorate our home. Beryn worked closely with our contractor to make sure the end result was beautiful. She always listened carefully to our ideas and kept in touch with the various vendors she used to make sure purchased items were corrrect and arrived as scheduled. We were extremely proud to have her as our designer and highly recommend her to others."
"I've worked with Beryn on three very different projects over the last five years, including the redesign of my new home. I trust Beryn implicitly. I've given her the keys to my new home and let her do what she does best. This affords me the freedom to get my own work done. Beryn has a great eye, is extremely professional, and works on time and on budget. I recommend her to anyone."

"We were extremely impressed with Beryn and do not hesitate in recommending her to everyone we come across. We worked with Beryn on choosing colors for three main rooms in our San Francisco luxury condo. After struggling with many choices over a few months, we asked Beryn to come and give her expert opinion. In less than an hour, she picked out colors that to this day, we absolutely love! We wish we had called her much sooner! She has a natural talent that complemented the elegant and modern style we were looking for."

"Beryn Hammil designed and decorated our Pacific Heights home and I couldn't be happier. Her talent and professionalism are unparalleled, and best of all, she delivered exactly what she promised! She has excellent taste and what worked really well for me was her realistic approach to my budget. What more could you ask for?"
Pacific Heights, San Francisco
"Beryn is quite simply the best! She worked her magic on our condominium - taking a small, rather dark space and using her construction knowledge and design expertise - remodeling our home into a fresh, sun-filled, serene space. We love coming home every day! Beryn listens to her clients, works hard, and is truly dedicated to making sure her clients are satisfied. With Beryn, I never had to worry about anything going wrong. She is meticulous and has impeccable taste!"
"After we read several of Beryn's Design Dilemma columns in The San Francisco Chronicle's "Home & Garden" section we contacted her to completely redecorate our living room in time for our son's wedding. We had put off doing anything because it was so intimidating. Beryn stepped in and created a new room in record time and with minimal stress. She respected our taste and our budget. We are delighted with the results, the wedding guests were wowed, and now we spend a lot of time just sitting and enjoying the room."
