Testimonials

I have been extremely fortunate to work with Stoddard House and Associates over the last 10 years! When we lived in an empty 3600 square foot, newly-purchased home. With her guidance and excellent taste, she assisted me in beautifully furnishing and accessorizing my home, making it a joy and a refuge to come home to at night.
In the past, I had not worked with a Designer for fear that the home would not truly reflect our personality but rather that of the designer and the home would look “decorated”. Christine Stoddard truly proved me wrong – our home is a true reflection of who we are and what we love and so much more. It has all the added touches that only Christine could bring. No detail was too small and no job too large – from handpainting of tiles in the master bath, to remodeling of the kitchen.

I know that I will continue to work with Christine in the future, since a home is a work in process! She has my sincerest and strongest recommendation.

My relationship with Stoddard House Interiors goes back to 1994. Christine is fantastic when it comes to style, color and MY taste. I couldn’t have done my home without her design assistance. She is so easy to work with. You will feel like you are working with your best friend. I have continued working with Christine as my home will always be a work in progress. I highly recommend Stoddard House Interiors. You won’t regret it!

When I moved into my home 3 years ago, I needed a decorator who could combine the furniture I moved from Arizona with the design and color scheme of my new home. My sister has depended on Christine’s experience for over 25 years and she recommended her. Although my sister and I have very different tastes, Christine was able to understand exactly what I wanted after just one meeting. She was able to find the furniture pieces, fabrics, and paints I needed on her first try. She listened to what I wanted, and was able to decorate my home, in budget and on time. She is inventive and easy to work with. My husband and I love the warm feeling in our home and I highly recommend Christine Stoddard. Infact, I have recommended her to my friends and family.

We have used Christine of Stoddard House Interiors for over 20 years now and I would not even consider using anyone else. Having used a designer in a previous home, I am very familiar with how designers work. My previous designer, while having an eye for color and design, I never felt that I was living in MY home with MY taste. It was the look of the designer. With Christine, she has the ability of getting into your head and knowing what it is you like, even when you’re still trying to figure it out. She has a sixth sense of figuring out her clients taste. My girlfriend, whom I referred Christine to, said the same thing. You would never know the same designer did both our homes as our tastes, while similar in some ways, are still different, and Christine was able to differentiate that. And lastly, she will complete your job down to the last detail So many designers walk away from a job once they have sold you the furniture, carpet and window treatments and then NOT come back to finish with all the details and accessories.
I highly recommend Christine and would not use anyone else.

Christine has been my only designer since I first became a homeowner 15 years ago. She designed my traditional brick colonial home and then my downtown contemporary condo – both equal creativity and excellence. She is a wonderful listener and always respectful of my budget. I would not want to work with anyone else.

Christine Stoddard has been our interior designer for nearly 30 years. She has helped us decorate 3 houses, including our home where we now reside after our retirement. She has helped us with paining, carpeting, wallpaper, furniture, accessories, and stone and brick work in our backyard. She has an amazing eye for color. After many years of use, the sofa she had made for our 2nd home needed reupholstering. When my husband and I searched unsuccessfully for 6 months trying to find fabric, my husband called Christine for help. Not only did she remember what colors we used, but within a week, she appeared with 3 samples in exactly the colors we wanted. She is extremely professional and genuinely cares about her clients. She is always aware of what the client’s taste is, listens to what their needs and wants are, and works within their budget to help them achieve their goals. You always feel she has your best interest at heart.
It is with the utmost confidence that we highly recommend Christine.

My husband and I have known Christine for approximately 25 years. She has helped us decorate 2houses; including paint, wallpaper, carpets, furniture and accessories. She is exceptional in choosing colors. She has an amazing ability of remembering a color we used 5 to 10 years previously. She has always been very efficient and timely in getting the work done. The workers she has chosen to do the painting, wallpaper hanging, carpet laying are always good and stand behind their work.
We highly recommend Christine. She is outstanding.

Christine Stoddard has been my interior designer for over 30 years, and for three houses. She has always worked with my taste and my budget to help me achieve the best look. This has been true when we first worked together doing one room at a time as time and money permitted, to helping us redo our entire home after a fire. She has a great eye for color, and always keeps up to date on the latest trends.
