The Client Experience | The Patel Family


After our initial consultation in their home we got to work creating design boards for them. We did the renovation part of the project through edesign, which means, we picked out selections, created new a new kitchen layout & they over saw the construction part of the process.  Once they got their design boards for the renovation, they gave it to their contractor who got to work.  



Once their renovation was complete then we started on the furniture & decor.  This was fun because the Patel's love pops of bright colors.  We used some of what they had & then we brought in all the finishing touches.  We absolutely love the way it all turned out, but let's hear what Aarti & Purav have to say. 


Please describe your home before working with Southern Farmhouse Designs. What was your main problem with your home that caused you to hire a designer/decorator? What did you want or need for the space? 

The house was built in 2000 and had a late 90s style. We planned on renovating and needed help creating a cohesive vision for the spaces.


How did you find Southern Farmhouse Designs? And why did you choose to work with us on your project? 

Southern Farmhouse Designs was recommend by co-worker, who had worked with them before. We liked Ashley's design style and process. 


What do you see as the major difference in doing the project yourself & hiring a professional? 

If you don't hire a professional, you will likely spend more money doing it yourself.  Ashley knew where to find the right pieces for our space at the right price. She saved us both time & money.  


"Ashley was amazing to work with! We had no idea how to approach the design of our remodel and we really did not know what we wanted. She asked all the right questions to help us create spaces that we now absolutely love. She is professional, responsive and diligent about staying on or below budget! We highly recommend Ashley and her team!"


We loved working with the Patel's on their beautiful home. And as always, we are so thankful & humbled that they would trust us to take their vision & help them turn it into their reality.  It's always such an honor. 

If you are interested in our e-design process, we'd love to chat with you about your next project.
