Testimonials

"I am a pretty confident home decorator. But Cheryl has a wonderful eye for color and scale, and she always has fresh and thoughtful ideas. She helped me with paint colors throughout my home, and with decisions about sofa and area rug placement. Whenever I need a second opinion about a project, or a totally new perspective, I call Arranging Places!"

Pam

Rancho Cordova

"My clients who live in their homes for decades really accumulate tons of memorable objects. So everything they touch in the process of moving has an emotional tie. Cheryl takes the process and makes it less emotional while treating the sellers gently with a high level of care. She takes charge and does the job with such a positive attitude. Thank so much Cheryl! You are the best!"

Lisa Shanahan,

Century 21 Realtors

"We would definitely recommend Arranging Places to our friends. Cheryl is so easy to work with and helped us to find the right colors for our paint and carpet. She is reasonably priced, has lots of ideas and suggestions and is very enthusiastic about what she does."

Carolyn and Dan

Rancho Cordova

"Cheryl was my first encounter with an interior designer (admittedly a little nervous) and did I hit a "home run" with Arranging Places. Cheryl was just great; from listening to my ideas and offering suggestions to improve, developing plans not only for the short run but also the long-term with a great eye for color and well versed in where to shop for great prices. The key for me in hiring Cheryl was her friendly, encouraging and helpful demeanor. If you are thinking about engaging an interior designer/decorator to help with your home check with Cheryl. You will be glad you did - I was!!"

Patrick

Fair Oaks

"Cheryl works with existing home décor and also provides helpful suggestions for new additions. She is also very good with paint and color selections. She is truthful and has a very pleasing, nonjudgmental attitude and does not urge you to spend unneeded money. Cheryl helps you achieve the desired look and feel you want after listening carefully to you talk about how you want the finished job to look aesthetically and the emotion you are trying to invoke in your home. She provides excellent service and makes the experience fun!"

Kristi and Hayworth

Sacramento

"Cheryl is most professional and made us feel at ease, listened to our concerns and provided great suggestions. We had been in the "forest" so long, we couldn't see the trees. She helped us to get out of the rut and see things differently. We cannot express how much we appreciate your help."

Brenda and Dell

Woodland

"I haven't been able to stop smiling since Cheryl did my redesign a few days ago! For the first time, I am actually incredibly proud of my home and cannot wait to have company. My previous experience working with another interior designer was difficult, over-priced and a waste of time and money which was incredibly disappointing and discouraging. I'm so glad I found Cheryl - she was understanding, friendly, honest, and simply a joy to work with. As a new first time mom, Cheryl helped me pick baby-friendly pieces that were functional, beautiful and affordable. She even gave me new ideas of stylish ways to baby-proof my home. Aside from her phenomenal talent and skill, I appreciated her taking the time to listen to all of my concerns, answer any questions I had and explain why certain colors/patterns would work. She went above and beyond my expectations and I cannot wait to work with her again."

Annette

"We recommend the services of Arranging Places. The furniture rearrangement made our rooms appear larger and the decorative items they provided enhanced the appearance of our home. What was most helpful during our home staging was that we were able to use our existing furnishings."

Wes and Sachiko

Sacramento

"Cheryl came to my home and viewed it with fresh eyes and came up with suggestions on how to arrange furniture, rugs, pictures, using what I already have to make each room more inviting and pleasant. She did this all within my budget. Her suggestions made me think outside the box, how important color is, how to enhance furniture with rugs, drapes, etc. I have put many of Cheryl's suggestions into place, what a difference! I'm stoked! Thank you, Cheryl!"

Judy

Elk Grove

"Cheryl, thank you for creating a unique look in our home that is so totally "us". Our home feels like the lobby of a tropical resort and is just the look we wanted. We love the paint colors and are so glad you advised us on the color of the living room carpet. It looks great with the wood floors, furniture and paint and really ties everything together. The bedroom colors look great with our furniture - very spa like. We purchased the dining room table and ceiling fan you suggested and the room now looks great and feels very balanced. Our home is so special and feels like some of the favorite places we have visited. Thanks for all your help and suggestions."

"Cheryl, I just had to pass on compliments from my landlords of this 1887 Queen Anne style Victorian home I've rented. They said that it is decorated better and cuter than anyone else has done in the past! Thanks to your expertise you found uses for almost all the furniture from my last home ... I could never have gotten it to this state without your help! Thanks much."

Brenda

"Cheryl was referred to me by a professional associate who utilized Arranging Places to remodel a kitchen and update an older home. She worked with my color palette ideas to come up with the best paint colors for my home. I was so pleased that she was willing to help me with a simple painting project. I feel confident that Cheryl will work with the furniture and accents I have to re-"Arrange" our "Place"."

"I cannot recommend Cheryl highly enough. She is simply the best find out there. I called for assistance in rearranging some furniture and was so impressed by the whole package that she brings. She knows just how to move things around to brighten the energy of any room. And beyond her exceptional eye for detail is her refreshing down to earth presence. She genuinely loves helping people improve their environment in the most cost effective and efficient way. She is not selling any high-priced items, simply providing a beautiful and amazing service."

Patrick

"We have lived in Newport Coast for 8 years and have arranged our living room several times over the years to try to get it looking good but functional and comfortable as well. Cheryl came in and arranged it in a way that we had never thought of. It now looks great, is functional and very inviting - just what we were looking for! Thanks Cheryl for your creative vision."

Greg and Linda

Newport Coast

"Cheryl came to our house for a consultation, and gave us some great ideas. She went through the house, room by room, and gave us suggestions on accessories, color and artwork that would complement the room. We had a lot of things that we accumulated over the years and since many of the items were personal, we wanted to incorporate them into our decor. We were at a loss as to which ones should go where, and Cheryl helped us to put them in the right places that made the most appeal. Thank you Cheryl!"
