“We found Cynthia when we were already well into our project (we had a bad experience with a downtown design firm); so Cynthia needed to get up to speed, understand our goals and timelines, and then act quickly to get our project back on schedule. Lucky for us, she did just that!
We are remodeling approximately 4,000 square feet, including kitchen, lounge, dining, front entrance . . . (you get the picture). It is an old house with some inconsistent design features from changes made over the last century. Cynthia listened carefully to us to understand our goals and then brought her years of experience, creativity, and artistic touch to our project to help us achieve them. We tend to be a little difficult to work with, but Cynthia applied a good balance of pushing back where she thought we were making design errors and yielding to our particular preferences (rather than insisting on us realizing *her* vision for our project).
Finally, we are quite cost conscious, and Cynthia has done a good job estimating hours and costs and working hard to keep within our budget goals. We recommend her enthusiastically!”

Cynthia was wonderful. We remodeled a laundry room and bathroom. They came out fabulous. Both rooms needed updating. They got that and them some. She understood my taste and really delivered rooms that not only look great but are functional and fit in with the style of the house. She also came regularly during construction to check on progress and answer questions the contractor
“I hired Cynthia of Lambakis Interior Design to help with my kitchen and laundry room redesign. It was absolutely the best decision! I shared my vision and the functions I needed for these spaces to be my dream. Cynthia was “spot-on”, her ideas opened possibilities that I never imagined! She was able to zone-in on my style, capture my vision, and deliver a space that perfectly fits my family. I give Lambakis Interior Design my highest recommendation!”

“We hired Cynthia to design a new den to match our craftsman house. She provided a great design plan, and found us some fantastic options for the fireplace, the tile, lights, cabinets and paint. It turned out wonderful and is now our favorite room in the house. Throughout the project she was always available and was very on top of all the phases of the build and design.”
“Cynthia did an outstanding job bringing our dream kitchen to life. Her design ideas were great and her oversight of the project was highly professional. During the 6-month construction project, I always felt she was looking out for my best interests. The end result is an elegant and functional space -- people come in and are awed. Large remodels inevitably involve stress, but Cynthia's customer-service / can-do attitude made ours much less so. For example, when the stone yard sold one of three matching slabs of marble, that we had reserved, to someone else, thereby discarding our choice and potentially delaying the project for weeks, Cynthia got in her car and drove 90 minutes to another stone yard to locate three matching replacements. She texted me photos, made a recommendation, and solved the problem in under 12 hours.”
“Over the past few years I have worked with Cynthia on the remodel of three bathrooms and two bedrooms. She is highly organized and knowledgeable on every aspect from design, implementation to completion. I would highly recommend Cynthia.”
“We just finished a gut renovation of our home. Couldn't have done it without Cynthia. Seriously. She gave us wonderful advice, held our hands and took much of the stress out of the process. We now have a beautiful home. Couldn't be happier. Can't wait to post photos!”
Professionals in the industry
“Working with Cynthia has been a professional and informative experience. As a contractor, it was refreshing to work with a designer who was involved from the very start of the project and remained so until completion. She communicates well with all parties involved and ensures that her clients achieve their dream home. I always look forward to projects in which I get to work alongside Cynthia.”
