Bleu Leman’s Dee Leifer is a truly exceptional interior designer. Maybe it is because of her european perspective, but her sense for colors and style is simply impeccable. Upon starting my living room and basement projects, I was wearily optimistic that I could find someone who would help me create a space in my home that was exactly what I envisioned. Dee did just that. After our consultations, she would come back to me with design options that had just the right amount of variation, but were all spot on. I have worked with other designers before with relative satisfaction but was not happy enough to return to them for future projects. I will definitely use Dee for my future projects. Dee is extremely warm-hearted and creative and she made the design process fun and relatively easy. She responds to emails and other forms of communication promptly and effectively. Her knowledge of the best stores, manufacturers and styles for my vision and budget ended up saving me a lot of money and headaches in the long run. I highly recommend her.

Our living room was once a room that we just walked through. You have transformed it into a space that we love and use, where we can entertain and relax as a family. It is comfortable and casual enough so we can come home sandy from the beach and play board games with the kids. You gave our house the feel of the Eastern seashore of my youth; now I feel on vacation in my own living room!

I love how you worked on making the entry way just what we wanted: my wife fell in love with a $2000 bench and you found a way for us to duplicate it in our budget. We could have gotten hooks from Pottery Barn but instead you found cool, funky, one-of-a-kind hooks so we have an entry way that does not come from a catalog, but has the exact feel that we wanted.

Thank you so much for all your help. We wouldn't have gotten to this for months or even years. You made it so simple and we couldn't be happier.

Thank you, as always, for your generous and honest help. Our home feels so much better and fixing it up is a nice way to pay tribute to old bones!
