A Few Words From Our Clients

Carol Christenson of First Impressions helped us on a big Master Bath and closet remodel, as well as refreshing our Master Bedroom with new paint colors, carpet and window treatments. From start to finish, she was fantastic and very fun to work with. Being new to remodels, we needed help with everything. Carol listened to our vision for the spaces and saved us lots of time by shopping materials with me. She listened to our budget, and worked well with our contractor. She is a total pro and is now my go-to interior designer for any future projects.
