“This project was our first major renovation after twenty nine years in our house. Betsy transformed our awkward and disjointed kitchen into a great cooking and entertaining space that connects perfectly with our dining and living rooms. Betsy’s keen focus on function and aesthetics made all of the difference during both the design and build phases of our project. Changes of inches here and there, recommendations on moldings, and recommendations on fixtures and other design details were the difference between a non-descript kitchen and one with beautiful details and finishes. Betsy’s participation in the building process was also invaluable. She identified early construction errors that averted major problems as the project progressed. She also worked hard to understand our tastes and was extremely efficient in presenting fixture and color options that made the selection process easier and less time consuming. It’s clichéd to say, but we couldn’t have done it without her!”


“I've had the pleasure of working with Betsy Bassett Interiors. We bought a new home and didn't know where to begin. Upon meeting Betsy, she quickly understood my aesthetic and was able to helped us put together rooms that were beautiful and functional. This included sourcing furniture/light/accessories, coordinating trades people (electrician, carpenter for built-ins, etc) and making sure everything turned out perfect. When my husband was ready to create an office out of one of our spare rooms a few months later, the only designer he trusted to work with was Betsy. Our office turned out beautifully. Betsy has amazing taste and a great eye for putting things together. We have recommended her to many of our friends and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”


“We cannot say enough about our experience working with Betsy Bassett. Our current project involved updating a tired condo with excellent bones into the beautiful residence that it was meant to be. Betsy is thorough, professional, and also a lovely person. She sourced and managed a number of excellent tradespeople to work on our project, while creating a beautiful aesthetic for us. Betsy’s ideas and problem solving skills in every area created added value, and brought the project in on time. This is our second major project with Betsy, and we would recommend her without hesitation as an outstanding design professional.”


“We have done several large projects with Betsy spanning over 3 properties. Projects ranging from complete overhauls to updates to small spaces. She is well qualified. Her work is impeccable, organized, timely and well thought out. Her ability to understand her client's style and add unexpected touches that round out any space is impressive! I would highly recommend her for any design project big or small.”


“We hired Betsy and her team to help coordinate a renovation of our aging kitchen area. We live in a Williamsburg style home that is 25 years old. We wanted to keep the integrity of the original architecture but with an updated interior design. Before meeting Betsy I met with two other designers that were not getting "it". Betsy was professional, easy to work with, a good listener, and had a great eye for space and design. She helped us create a charming space that looks like it was always there. It is warm, inviting, has a natural flow, and is functional, as I love to cook. Betsy offered connections with other professionals and tradesmen to assist in producing an end product consisting of the highest quality of craftsmanship and finish work that we were looking for, from a custom cabinetmaker and his woodworkers to fabrics finishes that reflect our lifestyle and the harmony of our home. She is a delight to work with!! I feel very lucky to have had her by my side. I came away feeling like we became a team ourselves! We loved her work so much that my husband is currently working on another project with her to help design his new office space. I would highly recommend Betsy Bassett Interiors when starting your next project!!”


“I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Betsy Bassett. We had just finished a home renovation, and only knew what we wanted the house to "feel" like. Betsy came highly recommended, and as soon as we met her we knew she was the one. She asked all the right questions, listened patiently, and "got" us very quickly. Betsy then helped us create a beautiful home with the perfect balance of elegance and comfort. She is a true professional, and her ability to not only envision a final product, but to do so with such a gorgeous design aesthetic revealed to us what a talent she really is. Betsy has a "can do" attitude, and you feel completely heard when working with her. She did everything from designing pieces of furniture to tracking down an artist that I had admired in passing. She has excellent follow-through, is efficient with her time, and is conscious of budget. I honestly can't say enough about her. She continued to amaze us with her design vision and resourcefulness throughout the project. We are absolutely thrilled with the results. She is the total package - a highly talented designer with the personality of a trusted friend. Highly recommend.”


“Betsy is an incredible designer. She listens very carefully to her clients taste and lifestyle needs and incorporates that into her incredible creative vision. Where others see obstacles, Betsy finds solutions that are budget conscious and beautiful. Although she is not an architect, she designed a renovation project that solved a myriad of problems without requiring the massive renovation suggested by several contractors. She is a pleasure to be around and has a wonderful positive attitude. My contractor, the subcontractors and our vendors all enjoy working with her as well because she is professional, conscientious, thorough and always well informed. Having encountered other designers over the years who were either pushy - in the sense that they were not budget sensitive or that they wanted my home to reflect their taste -- I can honestly say Betsy is a breath of fresh air. She has made my house into a home that I love, that reflects my and my husband's aesthetic sensibilities. I anxiously await the opportunity to work with her again.”
