We moved to Arizona permanently from Canada in 2005 but had never built a home so were as naive as it’s possible to be. We hired an architect and a builder to design a 5000SF home on a 3-acre hillside lot with spectacular views. We then hired Friedman & Shields as Interior Designers however they proved to be so much more. They substantially modified the architect’s designs throughout the home making the actual layout very much more functional and making far better use of the views. Their recommendations for ceiling treatments, lighting, colors, hard materials, fabrics, furnishings etc. were wonderful and seven years later we still love them all. Traci and her colleagues were great to deal with and very patient with we neophytes.
Traci Shields of Friedman & Shields is extremely talented and professional. She is easy to work with and quickly can select the very best in design and color options. Traci is also very talented with floor plan layout and design. I have worked with Traci on 2 homes over the past 9 years and she has impeccable style and taste. Traci is a genius. I can recommend her to anyone, as she is truly the best at what she does.
Traci, has done a few projects over the years ad all have come out fantastic, She has a keen eye for putting colors together and ensuring all designs have a wonderful flow.
Traci and her team were fantastic to work with. They were professional, insightful, creative, and to the point. They exceeded our expectations on the designs while staying within our budget and we are looking forward to the opportunity to work with them again.
Traci’s professional knowledge, experience, attitude and ability to meet deadlines and budgets exceeded our expectations. The scope of the project included architectural, structural and interior design changes, which under her supervision were executed flawlessly. Under her guidance both our functional and comfort needs were met, bringing a 30-year home into the 21st century.
