I hired U & I to decorate my new home and am more than satisfied with the results. Deborah offers as little or as much help as you want. She never overpowers your choices, but gently suggests ideas that work well with your decorating goals. U & I handles all subcontracting and uses professional and trustworthy people and or companies to complete these jobs. One of Deborah's specialties is using the furniture and accessories you have, but in a new and innovative way. She guided me through the selection of wall paint, window coverings and furniture. Her guidance in these areas made the difference between a drab and traditional set up as I usually had in my home, to a more dramatic and colorful living space. The addition of pictures and decorative items selected by Deborah enhanced the look of the rooms and brought all the rooms together, so that everything flows from one room to the next. How exciting to come home from work daily to new items here and there and furniture you've had for years used in places and ways you never dreamed would work well. I have many antiques and with Deborah's incorporation of linens, accessories and decorative touches I now have a home that is contemporary and I still have my much loved antiques.

Looking forward to working with you in the future. Thank you again for your kind words, it means a lot to me. Deborah
Deborah is an awesome and very professional interior designer. She provided me with great ideas. She gives you the option of do-it yourself project, but that doesn't mean she stops helping you. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to turn a simple room into a beautiful one. Deborah gives the best service; and I have not enough words to express my gratitude.

Aweee Mary, It was a pleasure to help you with your surprise for you husband. I am so happy to hear that he is home and loves everything you have done to the interior while he was away. Let me know when you are ready to begin the backyard project. Deborah
Deborah Lutz and U&I are the whole package, full service whatever your budget. She is my first call personally (she decorated my home) and professionally (I'm a Realtor & U&I does 100% of my staging). They have the ability to work within any budget, which is very important in this market. From the clean, simple,smartest use of items to the most extravagant hand painted murals and furniture restoration....and that's just on the inside! The exterior landscape design is just as impressive. Can't go wrong with U&I, should have a 6th star for value rating.
