Testimonials

Read what our clients had to say…

“Susan helped redesign our living room during 2015. Over several meetings every detail was meticulously planned; this included creating a melange of our older contemporary furniture with newer more modern units. Susan consistently presented new ideas during the process, always looked for alternatives based on feedback, and ensured successful completion of the project. Her design not only included furniture, but also had ideas about carpeting, fabrics, wall coverings and decorative pieces.
If I were to describe Susan’s personal traits, I would identify: friendly, professional, creative, passionate, reliable, and trustworthy. We were most satisfied with our experience.”

Walter K., Mahwah NJ

“It was an absolute privilege to work with Susan, she is a gem!
She has great ideas. Her style and taste is what we were loking for when we needed someone to decorate our home.”

Tony C., Paramus NJ

“I have worked with Susan Keefe for several years. She has helped me decorate my master bedroom, guest bedroom, den and a portion of my kitchen. At all times she spent many hours planning my projects. She always provided quality materials, stands behind her selections if they arrive damaged and respects my budget. I think you will find Susan wonderful to work with.”

Ralph M., Mahwah NJ

I have worked with interior decorator Susan Keefe of Decorating Den for several months now. We have completed a family room area and are now working on my kitchen. I love her ideas and my family room is beautiful, but it’s also comfortable and kid friendly. She moves quickly as well, and that was very important to me.

Kim I., Cresskill NJ

“When I saw Susan Keefe’s portfolio on her website, I was hooked. Her taste and style is exactly what I was looking for. After talking with her on the phone, I knew she was the person I wanted to help make my home beautiful. She listened to my specifics and found beautiful area rugs for my rooms. Susan is also doing all the windows in my house. She seems to know exactly how I want my rooms to look. I enjoy working with Susan a lot!”

Janet F., Ramsey NJ

With Susan’s help, we now have beautiful bedroom furniture, which we are enjoying very much. She has an expert eye for beautiful design, and we would like to work with her again to redecorate our family room.

Diane P., Mahwah NJ

Susan is great! She did our dining room and bedroom. They turned out beautifully and we had a wonderful time working with her in the process. She seems to be able to pull off the most amazing miracles like getting out dining room table and chairs delivered on Christmas Eve – which was actually ahead of schedule! I need my living room done and I’ve been meaning to call her. I highly recommend her. She’s a total professional and a delight to work with.

Marcia G., Mahwah NJ

Susan was great. She is always available to answer questions . She listened to my needs and gave me just what I wanted. The quality of her work was impressive and I never feel rushed when I have an appointment with her.

Dina L., Westwood NJ

Great Eye! Beautiful work, very knowledgeable and lovely people. Would recommend to everyone! Will use again and again and again!

Kim A., Fairfield NJ

I would and have without hesitation recommended Susan to neighbors, friends and family. At the first interview, she listened to my plans, likes and lifestyle and created the beautiful family room she has pictured in her listing. Since the family room project, Susan has also worked with me on my kitchen update, dining room and foyer. I am still in love with the rooms Susan has creatied for me.
When a table finish was less than perfect, Susan took care of getting a replacement and she was there to receive it–I never lost a day of work! She is very professional, friendly and respectful.

Oksana K., Oakland NJ

Dear Susan – I can’t say enough about the carpet upstairs. Vince and I absolutely love it. And your installer did such an amazing job… he’s the ultimate professional. The loft looks so good already and we haven’t even done half of the work there yet!

We’re really looking forward to the window treatments in the great room. Love your ideas! Thank you!!!

Hi Susan,
Just wanted to let you know how happy Neil and I were with the article in the Home section of the Herald and Bergen Record. The pictures looked beautiful and Eileen did a great job on the story. I was so proud to see my room on the front cover and, of course, bought several copies to give to family and friends.

It has been a wonderful experience since the beginning and I would never have thought to get so much more out of the those rooms than just the beauty and comfort that you were able to achieve for us. With that article, so many more people were able to see what great work you do.

Thank you again,
Stella

Stella D., Totowa NJ

Hi Susan and Nancy,
Thanks so much for coming to do the “Decorating for Summer” program last evening. You did a wonderful job — the powerpoint was excellent, your pacing was great, and your interactions with the audience were very helpful. Again, our thanks for your willingness to come and do a program like this for us.
We would look forward to having you back again sometime.
Kind regards,
Barb

She has artistic talent with a cost consciousness. It is never about how much she can spend but how to create environments. She is also a great listener and collaborates well.

Jerry A., Mahwah NJ

I used Susan, from Decorating Den interiors, to help spruce up our master bathroom,which was quite bland.From the window treatments,to the paint color,to framing our huge ugly mirrors,she transformed our bathroom! It went from a bathroom we hated,to one we loved! And,somehow she managed to stay under budget,and got all the work done faster than we thought possible.Thank you Susan,we love our new bathroom!

Cindy, from Mahwah

Susan has designed the window treatments for our living room and our family room as well as decorated the living room. We have been thrilled with both projects and she is about to complete the dining room window treatments. I especially enjoy her ability to incorporate our treasured belongings which have been collected over many decades when we lived in Africa and England and make them work in a New Jersey colonial.

Gail W.

I had the most wonderful experience working with Susan. She has so many resources available and makes great suggestions as to fabrics and wood finishes and window treatment. Susan has a terrific eye for color and patterns. I am beyond thrilled that I had the opportunity to work with Susan. I love everything that we selected and everyone who has seen the rooms she designed for me can’t believe it is the same house. She is extremely professional, meets her deadlines and follows up on every aspect of the project.

Susan F.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Susan Keefe. She is incredibly talented and a total professional. Perhaps most importantly, she listens! She is interested and wants to learn and understand the client’s needs and sense of style, so that she can make the space “theirs”. I had planned on doing over one room with Susan back in September 2016. After working with Susan, this one room project expanded to include my entire second floor- two additional bedrooms, vanity area, hallway, and den. I can honestly say that with her advice and guidance (never pushy or overwhelming), I love everything that I have purchased–not one mistake, which is a first for me. Furniture, fabrics/carpeting, wall hangings and window treatments all work beautifully together. I could not be happier, and plan on working with Susan again.

Nancy H.

Susan is very professional and we were glad we chose her to do our new home window treatments. The final result was beyond our expectations and we were very satisfied with her work. The first consultation was a key because we were able to explain everything we wanted and of course her ideas helped us on agreeing into a beautiful project.

I will highly recommend Susan and her company and of course use her again as soon!!!

Giselle G. 

Love, love, LOVE Susan’s work! My family couldn’t be happier! I now have beautiful window coverings that perfectly match my taste and new furniture and Windows look bigger! Susan brought me unique choices to choose from and visually presented them to me so I could “see” what each would like.

Suzanne M. 

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Susan over the past several months. Not only is she extremely talented but she’s very professional and easy to work with. For years I’ve wanted to get new window treatments and have not been successful in the past. When I saw Susan’s website I loved all the different looks on the windows. The before and after pictures were amazing and I knew this is what I was looking for. 

She had so many great ideas coordinating paint colors, fabrics, accessories, pillow, etc. The outcome of my overall decorating experience with Susan was better than I could have imagined. The saying “you get what you pay for” is very true, and my home is proof of that. I would highly recommend Susan to anyone who is looking to improve the look of their home, you won’t be disappointed!!

Dottie E. 

I contracted wtih Decorating Den/Susan Keefe to create window treatments for my office. Susan was respectful of my budget (and got me to stretch just a bit for a really fabulous fabric that I LOVE) and she understood immediately what I wanted in terms of style. The turnaround time was just as she quoted, installation was a snap and I am delighted with the results. I’ve gotten many compliments on them and I am proud to recommend Susan Keefe and Decorating Den to anyone who asks!

Karyn S.

Love, Love, Love Susan!! Very professional and great master of color, design and style.
We worked on several projects in my home and now everyone wants to know who my designer is! The workmanship is excellent. I just called her this week to start a new project. I highly recommend Susan.
