“The biggest compliment for me is when my established clients engage me to design their next home. I’ve been fortunate enough to have completed 3 and 4 homes for several of my clients- it’s a true honor.” – Traci Shields, ASID

We had an incredible experience working with Traci at Friedman and Shields. We did a total interior renovation on our second home. Traci quickly got a sense for our goals, budget and taste and was able to present ideas and suggestions for each step in a simple format to enable quick decisions to keep on track and on budget. Working remotely was really easy and Traci was responsive, reliable and accommodating for our schedule. The finished product is a stunning, award winning design that makes us so happy and so proud. It was also completed on time and on budget. Perhaps the most important quality is that we always trusted Traci and felt that she had unquestionable integrity and always had our best interests in mind.

We bought a house in AZ with several things that we didn’t really like. Traci came in and identified numerous things to change to our home, that made it ours. She helped us with the furniture and accessories and she did a fantastic job doing things that we would not have thought of. She is very efficient and easy to work with. We were very, very satisfied with her expertise, efficiency, enthusiasm, knowledge and attitude. We were so satisfied that we have asked her to help us with a home that we will be building late this fall in MN. We would highly recommend Friedman and Shields for any building/remolding projects.

Professional. Honest and straight to the point. Creative. Efficient. Traci is everything I hoped an interior designer would be. Both projects she has helped me with, have turned out exactly what I had envisioned.

We engaged Friedman and Shields for two projects in the last three years: The first was to combine two homes into one and do a kitchen remodel. The second was to furnish and decorate a summer home 125 miles away. In both instances, we felt that Traci and her team addressed our goals, personalities, and budgets in delivering a final product that was much more than we had imagined. Traci makes very good use of both our time and hers as well as that of her team. We had been concerned about a project 2 hours away but everything came together without a hitch and it was no problem at all. Traci is delightful to work with and we can heartily recommend Friedman and Shields!

Traci Shields and her team provided light construction, interior design, and furnishing for our home in Scottsdale. We are absolutely thrilled with the results! Traci’s recommendations for our project were spot on. She knew better than we did regarding what was needed and vision for the finished project. She did a brilliant job mixing our traditional style with the Southwest home we purchased. We live out of state and felt completely informed and easily made decisions with the information Traci provided. I can confidently say with Traci and her team on the job I knew each detail would be handled perfectly. Traci has an amazing gift and talent for completely understanding our “style” and making it a reality. I give her my highest recommendation and confidence.
