Koo De Kir has received accolades from Departures Magazine for its “flawless design consultancy service.” And for good reason. Not only will you find more than capable interior designers with Koo De Kir, but you’ll find they are as friendly and willing to work with you as they are knowledgeable and creative. The design firm works hand-in-hand with the Koo De Kir shop, where you can also find some lovely and eclectic pieces to update your home if you aren’t looking for a full redesign. Buyer beware, though. It’s nearly impossible to see the wonderful things in the store and not feel the pull to have the design consultants redo your entire living space.

ColorTHEORY has been the recipient of several awards. Most recently it has been awarded Best Interior Designer by Best of Houzz.

DIID Designs is a full service interior designer. But the service that has clients all over Boston raving is the custom window treatments. And while of course this kind of service comes at a price, DIID manages to provide quality at much more affordable costs than many other Boston designers. Better yet, the care shown to customers is as high quality as the timeless design.
