The Johnson Family

Deri and Kyle were extremely valuable in transforming major living areas on our first floor. They played the role of designer, therapist, and accountant. They were mindful of our budget and most importantly saw things we couldn’t see or visualize. In the end it all came together and we were quite thrilled. We’ll be reaching out to them when we’re ready to focus on the 2nd floor. We highly recommend them.

What can I say? Deri is absolutely fabulous! She helped me with the finishing touches for my home and the results are amazing! My rooms are now gorgeous with beautiful accents/accessories and wonderful pops of color. She was successful at getting me to go outside my comfort zone. Deri is a great designer, professional and knowledgeable. Don’t hesitate to hire her, she will transform your space and you will love it!

I have had the pleasure of working with Deri for the past few months and she never ceases to amaze me! She has a unique way of choosing colors and blending variable pieces of furniture and accessories together perfectly. She is very professional, caring and very patient with her clients. She did an amazing job in my home and I can’t stop singing her praises!


K. Johnson

We recently purchased a beautiful, new house and were ready to make it a home. The furniture for the family room and breakfast area from our previous home was just not a good match for the new house. We needed to start with a blank slate. We could not have imagined how well everything would come together. Deri has an excellent eye for color. Her design for our open concept home is absolutely gorgeous and incorporated our personal style and tastes. We cannot wait to have her come back to design another room in our house!

Deri helped us design/decorate our 9 yr old granddaughter’s bedroom into a tween haven. Our granddaughter was smiling ear to ear and couldn’t stop looking at all the special touches Deri included for her. We were on a tight budget and Deri worked diligently with us to keep to that budget by using as many items already in her room as possible. She captured our granddaughter’s personality in color and design. We are so blessed to have chosen such a bright, thoughtful, and sensitive designer and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to the highest.

Thanks to Deri, we have a fully decorated main floor, which is elegant and sophisticated but still suitable for our daily living with 2 young kids and a dog. We chose Deri after an extensive search. We loved Deri’s passion for the industry as reflected by her projects and designs. She is very attentive and helpful. She spent time understanding our design and budget needs and provided us with some great suggestion for a makeover. Deri also helped us with a quality services (painters/electrician) that met our needs. Deri guided us get through difficult design choices and pushed our comfort zones with colors, textures, and wall decors. She was great at optimizing our budget for the greatest effect. The entire experience was really fun, and we were amazed with the results. The quality of customer service that she provides to her clients is above and beyond. I would recommend her above any other designer in the business!

“I recently had my office’s waiting area remodeled by Tranquil Designs. The owner, Deri, was professional and efficient. After the job was complete the area looked classy and professional. It has been six months since she finished the job and I am still getting compliments on a weekly basis. Tranquil Designs was reasonably priced and finished the job in a timely fashion as promised. I have and will continue to recommend their services.”


Deri has been extremely attentive to our needs and provides excellent insight into our decorative questions. She is always available and provides prompt responses. Thank you for making our dream home a reality!

“I am so fortunate to have been referred to Deri Washington of Tranquil Designs. I had a disaster at home in the Poconos. My house needed to get gutted and almost completely rebuilt. Deri not only helped with design cues of architecture and placement, but especially with colors. She was such a good listener, really paying attention to what I liked and working with that to find what not only got rave reviews by friends and family, but was also a good fit for me. Her expertise from doorways, to flooring, to tile and trim transformed my house into my home. Tranquil Designs went far above my expectations and had it not been for Deri, the whole process of renovating my home would have taken longer, with more stress, and would not have looked nearly as good. Thank you so SO much Tranquil Designs! I am so very blessed to have had your help.”

Mark & Yvonne Reitemeyer 

Deri at Tranquil Designs transformed an unused office/4th bedroom into a terrific game/man cave for my son and husband. They LOVE IT! And I have the rest of my house back. The cost was exactly where she said it would come in there were no hidden surprises and she took care of everything from hiring the contractors to picking out the paint. I would definitely use Deri’s services again!

Mike and Tracey Palizzi

Deri Washington from Tranquil Designs redecorated many rooms in our home. Her professionalism and work to detail was superb. She included us throughout the design process and used only the best qualified professionals when having to use outside contractors. I would highly recommend her services. You will not be disappointed. I love my new rooms.
