We had Deri design the downstairs of our home. She presented us with numerous options and made many suggestions that were in line with the overall design concept that we were trying to create. She was great at making contemporary and timeless suggestions but most importantly she was mindful of remaining within our established budget. Deri and her entire staff were very professional and all her preferred contractors and vendors were A+ in quality. She was very attentive to our needs and completed our project within the estimated timeline. Deri was a joy to work with. We asked her to make our house a home and she did just that and more. We would recommend her to anyone in need of quality design services.

Deri is heaven sent. I recently purchased my home and felt overwhelmed with the task of decorating. I started my search for an interior decorator and was drawn to her style. Deri came to my home, sat with me and discussed ideas she had. I knew right away I could trust her and she would be a perfect fit for my project. Deri took my vision and brought it to life, she even pushed me to go a little out of my comfort zone and I am so happy I listened. It has been my absolute pleasure working with Deri. I feel like I have known her for years. The feeling I have everyday when I walk into my home is of pure joy. Deri turned my empty house into a FABULOUS home. I am so thankful. I could not have achieved this without her.

We chose Deri because she has a beautiful, classic, timeless style. We felt that with her help we could achieve a look that reflects our lifestyle with a level of sophistication that we could not do on our own. And she delivered!!
As first timers, we were excited, yet nervous. Deri listened to our aspirations for our home and nudged us outside our comfort zone to create a design that captured all we had hoped and more. 
Our home is beautiful and functional. We LOVE it! Our kids LOVE it! Thank you, Deri, for making our house home!

This was my first time working with an interior designer. I am a control freak and Deri never let on that I was probably getting on her nerves. She is a professional and has a great ability to take what you have and combine it with new and exciting pieces that turns your house into a dream home. She worked within my very strict budget. My family and friends loved my new home because the decor. I highly recommend Deri Washington. She is talented, a professional, and very creative with an eye for beauty. You will not be sorry when you choose Tranquil Designs.

Brilliant. Deri is the best designer I have ever worked with and I have worked with several. She has an natural ability to really quickly understand your style and create an amazing look that reflects your style rather than hers. So creative in how she is able to pull a room together. And equally as important sticks to a budget. Below were some pics of the first two rooms. We have moved on to others now. I cannot tell you how many complements I get and I always say "I would love to take credit but I cannot. I have a brilliant designer." She has helped to make my house into a home. Thanks Deri!

Our family has been truly blessed to meet Deri, and her team. I felt an immediate connection to her when she came to our home to do a consult. I have always felt hesitant to hire an interior designer due to costs, and the fear of it not turning out as good as I hoped. After the first 30 minutes of meeting Deri, and having her in our home, she somehow captured our style perfectly, and designed multiple spaces for us. She turned our house into a home. She exceeded our expectations, and she stayed within the budget we agreed on from the beginning. It is so inspiring to meet people who truly love what they do. Deri's passion shows through the work she does, and the connection she makes with her clients. We will definitely have her back to help us with other rooms of our home!

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!

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!

Deri is awesome at what she does and has a great eye!! She managed several projects in my home including painting of several rooms, master bedroom redesign, kitchen counter and backsplash selection, family room update, dining room update and updates in kids' bedrooms including closet re-organization. Deri works with amazing, professional contractors and stays within budget. At the completion of my project, I still had funds remaining. She will work with either a clean slate or design around pieces you have which is greatly appreciated. It was truly a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you again in the future!

We were moving into a new, custom-built home and wanted to start with a clean slate for our lower level and master bedroom. Deri brought our vision to life! She understood our taste and our goals. After a consultation and inspiration pics I shared, she came up with a cohesive, stylish and functional plan for our rooms. I was involved with every piece ordered. If I didn't love it, then she worked to find me something until I did. She was the perfect balance of listening to my suggestions, likes and dislikes as well as recommending things she thought would work and explaining why. And talk about stellar service -- Deri and her team were at our house to accept all furniture deliveries and assemble them when necessary. When several pieces had flaws because of shipping, Deri called her contacts and soon, the piece was shipped back and a new one came in so that we would be 100% satisfied. And we are! We love the way our new home looks. We would definitely use Deri again!
