Testimonials


“Bonnie designed our Master Bath for remodel. Her ideas were outstanding and elegant. She also managed the project. We were very happy with the design, construction and the entire project. Her selection of specific high-end materials and items used in the project added an upscale look to it. The contractor she suggested also did a wonderful job for us. Would I use Bonnie again? Absolutely. I highly recommend her.
- J. Bruce Bossie


“Working with Bonnie on renovating our master bedroom has been an absolute pleasure. She took time to understand our goals and tastes, diligently searched for creative and cost-effective options for every piece, and recommended reputable sub-contractors. Her organizational skills and attention to every detail resulted in efficient and timely project completion and the beautiful end-result we love!”
-Dr. Susan Wilder


"What a great experience working with Bonnie and Copper Star Interiors. From the start she was very professional. She listened to our ideas and made wonderful suggestions. About half way through the project we learned just to go with Bonnie’s instincts. The overall design and the way she brought it all together with exceptional use of color far exceeded our expectations. All our friends were amazed at the outcome, too."
-Alan & Joan Langston


"Bonnie had a great way of identifying the type of buyer for each property and staging with that in mind. I have had some dramatic results using her services"
-Jeff Setlow, Owner at AceAgents.com and NuEquity Group>


"Bonnie's level of staging goes beyond what someone with good taste and a large budget can do. Every room staged is measured in all 3 dimensions so that the appropriate furniture and household artifacts can be artfully placed to maximize the use of space, transforming an otherwise empty or crowded shell of house into what buyers might imagine as their future home"
-Teck Tang, Business Intelligence Professional
