TESTIMONIALS

 
 
Working with Diane to update my home was a complete joy. Her passion for interior design is evident in the enthusiasm with which she approaches every project, whether large or small. Diane helped me and my husband redesign our home and created a design flow throughout our house that is beautiful and inviting. I love that every space is stunning and functional. Diane’s success is a result of her understanding her clients’ needs and lifestyle and transforming rooms into livable spaces to meet those needs. The best part is that Diane has terrific energy and she is fun to work with. She was with us every step of the way to help make decisions. Our home turned out beautifully.

I hired Diane Falanga of Space Defined Interior Design because of her reputation as a very skilled and well-regarded designer with strong references. She is exceptional! Her boundless energy, eye for design and project management skills resulted in two fabulously successful office build-outs. The scope of these two projects was extensive, including conference rooms, private offices, waiting areas, lounges, etc. I can’t wait for project number three and to work with Diane again!

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Diane on two of our homes and we’d most certainly hire her again! Most recently, we had a challenge furnishing our small outdoor space. We wanted it all and I wasn’t sure we could make it happen. Diane was able to take a very tight space and create three zones giving us what we wanted—a dining area for family meals, a lounge space for entertaining, and a firepit area. She helped us select multi-purpose furnishings, and she did it while staying within our budget. Diane has also helped me “fill in the holes” in my house. When I was in need of some “finishing pieces,” Diane was able to come in, assess the situation, listen to my needs and find just the right pieces. Diane always arrives with a smile, is full of energy and has laser focus. She’s not only our designer - she’s become a dear friend. You can’t go wrong with Space Defined and Diane!

Diane Falanga of Space Defined Interiors created “home-sweet-homes” in four of my residences including Chicago, New York City, Kiawah Island and Vero Beach, Florida. She is a complete joy to work with - not to mention extremely creative, professional and fun! I absolutely could not have done these four houses without Diane’s design expertise and attention to detail every step of the way. I wouldn’t think of using another designer when I work on my next project. I can’t wait to work with Diane again.

Diane helped us coordinate an extensive remodeling on our home including completely redesigning our kitchen. She made an overwhelming process feel very manageable by assisting with all kinds of decisions and communicating with architects and subcontractors. Her thoughtful guidance and creativity were invaluable and we so appreciated her ability to be flexible and really hear what we wanted to accomplish with our project. She was incredibly efficient with her time and ours and kept things running smoothly. It is an absolute joy to see the transformation in our home and we couldn’t have done it without Diane.

Diane was a pleasure to work with on our home remodel. Always professional and efficient, Diane was instrumental in bringing our vision to life. Diane used her design expertise to guide us on the many micro decisions required in our major home renovation. At the same time, she was always respectful of our input and collaborative in decision making. Ultimately, Diane made a very stressful and complex project manageable and nearly stress-free. Thanks to Diane, we now have a beautiful home that we LOVE! We couldn’t have done it without her!

I have known Diane Falanga for the past 20 years and honestly, her talents are limitless! She has an impeccable eye and superb attention to detail and can create any kind of living space you desire. When my partner and I were selling our two homes to move into a home together, Diane helped us both figure out what furniture would work well in our new space and how to sell/donate the things we wouldn’t be bringing along with us. When we moved in, she was responsible for figuring out where everything would go, helping us with carpeting, paint, art, accessorizing and additional furniture purchases, and truly setting the tone for our warm and welcoming new home. So many decisions needed to be made in this process and she was able to work through each and every one patiently and confidently. Our home is exquisite and we credit her with all of it. She’s enthusiastic, artistic, funny, energetic and extremely capable in every facet of the decorating/remodeling process.
It is truly a pleasure to work with her!

I have hired Diane to help me decorate two different homes. She is full of energy and works quickly and efficiently! I am especially impressed with how she is able to repurpose some of my existing furnishings, hang pictures in the right places and find new furniture, fabrics and accessories to mix in with the old.
I strongly recommend Diane, she is truly great!!!
— Barb Sheridan, Winnetka, IL

We have referred Diane to many clients. No job is too big or too small for her. She works extremely hard and is always there when you need her so that the job gets done on time. She has an exceptional eye for how to arrange the furnishings in the ideal manner. Then she adds very nice touches to make everything show its absolute best. Most importantly, because of her strong interpersonal skills our clients love working with Diane and they follow her advice. This enables us to get the home sold. We can’t recommend her enough.
