I’ve been involved in the Atlanta design community for 25 years as a manufacturer dealing with architects and designers on large-scale commercial projects. When it came to my own home, a loft in Inman Park, I chose Donna as my personal designer. She understood my vision, was helpful and tactful, and gave my home sophistication, contemporary style and artistic flair.

New Mood Design helped us remodel our 1970s home. It was important to maintain the integrity of our architect-designed home. Donna added value on so many levels – from pure design to technical details. The result is a beautiful space that blends seamlessly with our home’s existing architecture! Donna adds real value from the planning through to the final outcome.

My home was nice before I hired New Mood Design for interior decoration services. I needed new furnishings, antiques and fine art, yet I truly didn’t expect how Donna would transform my home so beautifully. I love it. New Mood Design’s clients are very fortunate to have Donna’s special talent and guidance.
