• Hi Annie - I've been meaning to stop by FB and let everyone know how pleased I've been with my DIAB! I decided to try the Decorator in a Box for my living room & dining room only, but then when it was time to do my bedroom - I was not able to do it without you! I've had so much fun through out the process. It was impressive to see how you took my input (all via email's) and then designed something beautiful that reflected my style and budget. So, I strongly recommend the DIAB to anyone-in fact, I don't think I'll ever decorate anything without the DIAB! Look for the before and after photos in the next coming weeks. J

  • "I love the concept of a flat-fee for a professional design. No pricey and time consuming back and forth with a decorator that is charging me by the hour and nudging me toward expensive custom pieces from furniture stores providing a decorator's commission but over-charging me. Annie's process is both cost and time efficient - and just down right fun! I just sent off the info she needs to know about my design project and she more than met my expectations. A creative and professional design, taking into account my style and what I wanted from the room, but with the instinct and flair of a decorator's eye. The pieces were selected from nice but affordable stores. Once the design was in my hand I was able to select the pieces that made sense for me at the time it made sense for my budget. I love that she gives options for each piece - but if I'm honest - I always go with "Annie's Favorite". What can I say? This girl has great style! I can (and have) whole-heartedly recommended Annie and her innovative approach to interior design with MyDiaB.com! You will not be disappointed"

  • Annie was an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She got it from the very start and was quick and thorough with her presentation for my space. It was like working with a close friend on creating a space that is uniquely you. Thanks again!

  • I appreciate the constant dialog that I received from Annie. I never had to wonder if she had received my order, was working on my room, or if I was clear enough with my request. I was treated like I was a VIP client and that she had no other work to do but me. It made me feel appreciated.

  • Annie! Thank you so much for the great bedding! I'm going to go with Ashen Bedding #1. I've already ordered the knit throw. And I got the ok from Jake on these pillows: http://pillowsandthrows.com/bl63958.html I would have never found them without you!
    You know, its funny--I didn't tell Jake I was doing this- I didn't think he would understand why it was so hard for me to get the bedding together. It's like putting together an outfit you both have to wear...everyday. The task seemed so daunting--I didn't even know where to begin, there are sooo many choices out there. When I opened the box, it was so easy. I said, ok, i like this color blanket the best. check. I like this pillow the best, check. And so on. You simplified it into a manageable project. I can't wait to move into our new house (2 weeks!) and get my bedding together. I'll send a pic when we're settled! Thank you so much!

  • After being newly married and just having bought our first home together, my husband and I found our bedroom to be the most unattractive room in the house. The mismatched furniture and a dull color scheme certainly left something to be desired. I called upon interior designer, Annie Pauza, for so much needed help. I sent her some pictures of furniture I was looking at, inspiration images and the price range I wanted to stick within. She came back to me with such great info on how to mix and match furniture, suggestions for pop colors, carefully selected accent pieces and even some DIY (do it yourself) ideas! After reviewing her feedback I felt so inspired and confident to hit the furniture stores myself without being overwhelmed. I am happy to report that my bedroom has come together full swing since working with Annie. It feels cozy and chic and completely encompasses our personal taste but with that extra refinement that you only get when working with a professional. Thank you so much, Annie, for helping us make our house a home!

  • I met Annie Pauza when she perused an interview with me for a class project. She called many times before I met her for a short lunch. I was so impressed with her poise and intelligence that I offered her an internship her final year of design school. She arrived everyday with enthusiasm, design concepts and a flair for customer service. One of the goals we discussed was that Annie would grow her own design clientele. As my firm was growing, I would hand over new clients to Annie to develop their personal projects. I never worried that the client would be disappointed. To this day, my own clients ask frequently how Annie is and how she is enjoying the Florida Market. Where ever Annie is working, she will always be successful.

  • Annie was an outstanding designer to work with who always had great ideas for the space we were working on and how to tie in the newly decorated space with the rest of our house. She was a master at finding great looking accessories and connected us with a faux painter, and had a person make some items for our master bedroom. Annie always asked what our budget was and managed to give us a beautiful design within our budget. Annie put together a unique design after she spent time finding out your personal style and what you had in mind for the design space. We can't say enough about the outstanding work Annie did for us over the 2 years we worked with her.

  • "Annie Pauza is an exceptional designer. Her vision is that of style, class and function."

  • My experience working with Annie Pauza was wonderful! She was extremely helpful in every step. We had a new house that was in dire need of design and color. Annie's suggestions fit our style perfectly. Her creativity and expertise was superior in all aspects of the job. I highly recommend Annie for anyone seeking interior design work.

  • "Annie is a hard working, talented designer who brings creativity and positive energy to every project."
    Joy Nelson

  • "Annie was able to bring me to designer show rooms not open to the public that widely increased the options available to us of such things as bedding covers and furniture. She was great with color suggestions and details such as hardware selection. She was very receptive to my use of sub-contractors that I knew for certain parts of the project. Best of all, Annie delivered a complete product in just a few months (3 bathrooms, a bedroom, kitchen re-do, main level hardwood floors)!"

  • "From the all-important granite selection to the following selections including backsplash tile, pendant lights above the island, paint color, flooring and even hardware for drawers and cupboards, Annie was with us every step of the way to help us coordinate the "look" we wanted. Our completed kitchen ended up being featured in our remodeler's advertising booklet!"
