I’ve hired New Mood Design twice to decorate my home. Donna always does an amazing job! The artwork, lighting, rugs and furniture selections are perfect. She has an eye for just the right touch to give a room the “wow” factor! Donna’s a pleasure to work with and is quite intuitive about curating what her customers will love.

I worked with Donna when I was lead architect completing the design and construction administration of the Shaw Center for the Arts, Baton Rouge. Donna was the Louisiana State University Museum of Art’s newly hired Deputy Director. During the design and construction process, the scope of the museum’s program changed often due to changes in LSU MOA’s executive leadership. Schwartz/Silver’s design strategy, to meet the Shaw Center’s construction deadline and fixed opening date, was to provide a “white box” solution for the exhibit halls. It was under these high-pressure, time-sensitive circumstances that I worked with Donna. She capably managed the design team, both in-house and contracted experts, for the new museum’s exhibit spaces, directing all aspects of design related to the spaces and the exhibition. Donna is a creative design professional who will work closely with the client to achieve outstanding results. She proved to be creative, hardworking, knowledgeable, schedule driven, and budget responsive during the most important moments for the LSU Museum of Art, when it mattered the most.

Donna designed my new master bathroom, powder room, a dining room expansion out the back of the house, and selected the whole home’s new interior and exterior paint colors and a new roof. I didn’t know what to expect or how to budget. I was very apprehensive about the renovation. Donna thoroughly explained the process and helped me set realistic budget expectations. Once we began the design process, I realized I’d made a great decision in hiring Donna. She has great taste and everything she picked out I love! The design process was smooth. Donna was a complete professional and extremely responsive to my questions during the ups and downs of the entire construction phase. Most importantly, I’m thrilled with how everything turned out. I LOVE my new master bathroom. It’s warm and masculine while still being clean and elegant. I spend way more time in there than is necessary but it makes me happy. The whole interior of the house looks amazing and more “high-end” with fresh wall colors and newly dark-stained wood floors. I’m about to start a home addition. Needless to say, I’ll be hiring Donna and New Mood Design!

Donna evaluated all of the artwork from our former home and did an expert job in maximizing its use and placement in our new home. She also sourced a new piece of art and had several pieces re-framed to fit our decor. Donna was very efficient with her time and gave us ideas that fit our style but that we would have never come up with on our own. Very satisfied. She delivered real value.
