Made Our Home A Sancturary

Carol, we want to thank you for making our home our sanctuary. It’s so relaxing with the new colors of paint and tiles you helped us choose, and the shower design we love. Everything came together just like you said it would. Also, the unique pieces of furniture from Four Corners Home are so exciting and the first thing visitors seem to comment on. The lamps and beautiful Copper Drum table are simply great accent pieces. Also, our beautiful artwork stands out nicely now. We truely love coming home to relax and enjoy our lovely/ peaceful place.

Excellent Eye For Color

Carol has been an immense help in advising on our recent downsizing from a large home to a condo. She has an excellent eye for color and created a contemporary palate that is perfect for our taste. She listens to what her client says and is always willing to offer suggestions that one might not think about. Her company offers full design services in addition to her Hunter Douglas business and I would highly recommend her for anything design related. You won’t be disappointed!

A Keen Design Eye

Carol assisted us in fitting our windows with a mix of HD Solera shades and HD Duette shades throughout our home. She was a delight to work with and we’re very pleased with the final results. Carol was always prompt with her responses and was priced competitively to other Hunter Douglas retailers in the Asheville area. She has a keen design eye and knows the products well. We would highly recommend Creative Interiors by Carol!

Airbnb with a decorator’s touch

I was at a loss for completing interior design and style for my Airbnb. With Carol’s assistance, it has been a smooth transition to successfully marketing and presenting the space to guests. There have been so many compliments and I would not have received such feedback without Carol’s help. This project was challenging mainly because of the finished floor coloring prior to Carol’s involvement. I am relieved that she has such a nice eye for design concepts, style and colors. Another area which she really excelled in was assisting in (her) selection of paintings adorning the walls – what a relief!! Carol also provided some nice decorator’s finishing touches in the bedroom as well. I am so pleased with the results!

Relaxed, Systematic, Professional

I work at a retirement community, and it is my responsibility to maintain a high occupancy rate in our independent living homes. I was having trouble with one apartment in particular, so a colleague who had success using Carol at a different location, suggested I give her a try.

Upon meeting Carol, I was very impressed by her relaxed yet professional disposition, and also the by the systematic way in which she approached her work. She was eager to help and brought years of experience to the job.

Carol listened closely to what I wanted, and I was thrilled with the finished product! She designed the apartment with such beautiful furniture and accessories, and the color palate she came up with was a show-stopper.

After three showings, I had a client commit to it before even walking completely through.

I highly recommend Carol and know I would use her services again in the future.

Understood My Budget

Carol was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive and professional. She understood my budget and while she went over budget on some items she then compensated by finding amazing bargains in other places. She has a great eye for creative uses of unique pieces and also understands that sometimes older pieces have sentimental value and just can’t be disposed of.

Most Pleased With The Results

Asheville interior designer Carol Hensley served as interior designer for my new home in Asheville. I selected this home in its halfway point of construction and had full opportunity to work with Ms. Hensley in the selection of the interior finishes. The process of completing my home was most pleasurable, thanks to Ms. Hensley. She offered just the right number of good selections for me with wall colors, fabrics, kitchen and fireplace tiles, wood flooring and carpets. I continued with her in selection of window treatments and have been most pleased with the results. All inquiry email and telephone calls were returned in a timely manner and I have nothing but good things to say about her delivery methods.

The entire team they work with including painters, tile men, electricians and more were exceptional. We would recommend Creative Interiors to help anyone through the long process of building your dream home.

The Creme de la Creme

We were living on Hilton Head Island and recently moved to Asheville, N.C. Creative Interiors by Carol was highly recommended to us by friends. Since we were out of town while renovations were going on, Carol was our liaison, and not only helped us choose the paint colors, flooring, granite counter tops, but supervised the entire renovation in our absence.

The creme de la creme was the window treatment selections that allowed us both privacy and ability to enjoy our view.

She Listens And Incorporates

I worked with Carol on design of a master suite. She has a great sense of design and color and what I liked best about her was that she truly listened and allowed it to become a collaborative process. I have worked with designers before that I had to almost jump and shout to get their attention. Not Carol. She listens and incorporates. Even when I didn’t exactly want her initial idea…..she proved to be right every time.

Thank You For The Amazing Job

As always, thank you for the amazing job you continue to do overseeing, creating, advising, purchasing and designing everything from a work space in the garage, to the redesign of the laundry room, to window treatments, managing the painting both interior and exterior, to helping me – long distance – design and order tile, countertop, etc. for the kitchen. Keep in mind I will be tackling the master and guest bathrooms once the kitchen is completed – so keep any ideas on file for both of those rooms too.
