Dawn helped us realize the home of our dreams in the Texas Hill Country, exceeding all expectations of the value of engaging an interior designer. Her guidance as a fully credentialed and experienced design professional made it possible for us to achieve our goals, make selections in a timely and efficient manner and provide essential input and feedback to our builders and other contractors at critical junctures -- all while we were living in London and trying to manage the process. She maximized each visit we made to check on the house by developing objectives for each trip, scheduling appointments and often even providing healthy lunches on the go. We greatly benefitted from the relationships she has with vendors, including specialists in lighting, fixtures, stone, finishes and furnishings and were grateful to have her serve as our representative when we could not be present. She was respected by everyone on our job for the valuable contributions she made and her commitment to following up and following through. We are thrilled with our home and are certain every dollar we spent with Dawn is already producing a rewarding return.

My husband and I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Dawn through a major interior and exterior house "remodel/makeover." It would be possible to write pages on Dawn's capabilities and why we would definitely work with her again and recommend her to others. In addition to her overall professionalism and warmth, Dawn is extremely competent in the following:

  • Listening and translating the look and feel we wanted for our home but had difficulty expressing, into a design vision, plan and reality
  • Working collaboratively as part of the team with our contractor and landscape designer, which ensured everyone had a common vision for the overall design of the house and coordinated execution
  • Providing information and alternative perspectives that helped us make confident decisions on materials, surfaces, design, etc.
  • Respecting things we treasured and our personal quirks while finding creative ways to effectively incorporate them into the overall design
  • Keeping the project moving at all times in positive and proactive ways
  • Selecting quality suppliers and establishing effective relationships with them so that we had access to a variety of different products, good experiences in their showrooms, worked within our budget and any problems were resolved quickly.

With Dawn's expertise our 26 year-old house is now our dreamhouse!

We would highly recommend Dawn Hearn.  Dawn is a great listener which makes her very easy to work with. She was able to help us define what it was we wanted and then she introduced some new ideas which made all the difference. We so enjoyed working with her, we are working with her again as we build a new house. I appreciated the fact that Dawn always arrived on time, set realistic expectations, and was always available if we had questions. Most of all, I enjoy knowing that I am going to love whatever we put together.

- Karen S., Austin, Texas

Over the past year, we have had the pleasure of working with Dawn on the interior design of our new home.   Dawn is the epitome of a professional; she is attentive to customers' desires/budget, responsive, and exceptionally talented at taking a "vision" from concept to completion. Our interior design project included space planning and furnishings for our family room, study, formal dining, kitchen, entry, powder bath, and children's bath. Given the scope of the project, Dawn developed a master design plan we could implement in phases. Implementation of the master design has been seamless, and it has been a wonderful experience partnering with Dawn to transform each of the rooms to make them "home." We could have never accomplished what we did in our home had it not been for Dawn. We look forward to our continued relationship with Dawn, and would highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a talented designer that will deliver results.

As a Builder, I evaluate an Interior Designer on how well they listen.  I have worked closely on a number of projects with Dawn Hearn and she is great at both listening and understanding the clients' needs. She is also great at gently encouraging the client to consider going outside of their comfort zone to explore avenues they might not consider. Dawn is a great team player, professional, timely, and has a great eye for detail. She has a proven track record and we can't say enough good things about working with Dawn! It's always a pleasure.

- Mark Audino, VP at Audino Construction, Inc. Austin, Texas

It has been a pleasure working with Dawn.   She listens, takes the lead in the project, and sees it through completion in a timely manner. Her expertise and guidance have saved me both time and money. I appreciate the way she puts her client's needs first and stays on track until the job is done. She has become my Interior Designer of choice in Austin.

- Kim T., Spicewood, Texas

Dawn has been our interior designer on three major home renovation projects: renovating our kitchen/dining room; designing a new master bathroom and redoing a powder room; and renovating our living room, master bedroom and two upstairs bedrooms.

We have found a comfortable partnership with Dawn. She listens as we discuss our desires for a room, how we want it to work for us, and how we want it to feel upon completion.

Dawn guides us through paint and stain colors, cabinetry, lighting, moldings, flooring, fabrics and window treatments. Our completed projects mirror the light, warm, inviting rooms that we initially described and which were successfully completed by working with Dawn. She is readily available when we had questions. We have two rooms left to renovate and Dawn's number is on our speed dial.

- Lynn and Tim O., Georgetown, Texas

Dawn helps make the selection process painless. I know I can count on her to make interior design decisions that take into account the client's preferences and budget, the architecture of the home, and current styles and trends. And it always looks great!

- Tom Hall, Tom Hall Construction Austin, Texas

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Dawn Hearn, with whom I have worked for the past year. Dawn designed for me a beautiful dining room and living room, and I couldn't be more pleased. Dawn has an excellent eye for color and texture, and I have been very pleased with her suggestions for paint, fabric, floor covering, and window treatments. Dawn has helped put me in touch with competent and reliable contractors, and she has even shopped for me, selecting wonderful items I would have chosen myself. Dawn is very creative and talented and a pleasure to work with, and I'm looking forward to working on our next project.

- Terri P., Georgetown, Texas

I have had the privilege of working with Dawn on my new house construction and a professional office redo. Whether a major project or a small remodeling job, it was my experience that Dawn was very responsive and organized, tackling her work with enthusiasm, energy, creativity, and vision. She is an excellent listener and communicator who is knowledgeable, detail oriented, and full of ideas. From start to finish Dawn had the knack of making it seem that I was her most important client with the most exciting and glamorous projects ever! With her excellent guidance and expertise, the work stayed on track, moved forward steadily, and was not derailed by the unexpected. Dawn is a talented designer, an accomplished business woman, and the consummate professional. Needless to say, she will be the first person I will call when I decide on my next project!
