Portland Interior Design Clients Reviews and Testimonials for Pangaea Interior Design Services

“You are truly gifted, talented and have a knack for understanding just what is needed and more! Oh, every time I walk into the condo now my heart skips a little beat … I really couldn’t have dreamed it any better! Thank you,thank you. Bravo once again!” — Denise Ward

“Pangaea – Thank you for sharing your creative, professional “eye” with me in regards to the kitchen materials & house paint colors. You went above & beyond for me and I will be referring you to everyone I know as part of my thanks to you. You’re the best!” — Teresa Rickard

“Pangaea - I want to thank you again for all of your help with my new place! I really enjoyed working with you- so fun. You have great energy, creativity, caring work ethic, and worked within my budget!

As I had mentioned to you, it can be intimidating thinking about working with a designer when one doesn’t have a huge budget- like myself. I love that you were willing to work one hour with me or more- whatever I was comfortable with. Anyone who is being careful with costs (who isn’t these days) should feel very comfortable to discuss their budget with you and welcome you into their home.

You really put the extra effort into your work- directing me to good shopping  resources or sending me helpful tidbits in an email to help me while checking in on my progress.

I would love for you to stop by if you are ever in The Pearl!

Thank You!” — Cassandra Cole

“Pangaea, I think you’re great. You can tell people my name and tell them that I’ve used your service personally and am a very happy and satisfied client. I think you’re the best stager out there!” — Joe Reitzug, Sr. Vice President, John L. Scott Realty, Oregon/Southwest Washington Residential Division


“Pangaea, we have good news! The Bridgeport condo has gone into a pending sale! I have to share with you that this buyer saw the condo when it was still empty and she had decided to pass on it. After you staged it, we got her to come back and take a look. At first she refused to believe it was the same unit! This is a real testimony to your beautiful work, creativity and artistry. We had not changed anything else and had not lowered the price, so the staging is what did it. Thanks for all your hard work.” — Mindy Haidle, Meadows Group Realty


(This next quote comes from the buyer of a luxury townhome at Meridian Ridge who came in to look just as I was wrapping up my staging. Prior to my staging, these townhomes had been on the market for almost a year with no sales.)


“You know, my husband and I had been considering this unit, but I had pretty much made up my mind against it. I just didn’t really like the color of the slate on the fireplace and the color of the granite in the kitchen. I couldn’t really imagine how I could possibly decorate around these colors, but now that I see it all decorated I GET it! I’m really seeing how this can all work.” — Crystal


(The above is just one quote — while she and her husband looked through the property, three separate times she made a point of exclaiming what a transformation the decor had made in her ability to imagine living there. Happy ending! They put in an offer that week and the townhome is sold!)


I got an offer already! Couldn’t have done it without you!” — Amanda Matsuda (from text message 2 days after staging her occupied home.)
