Ariel has been instrumental in creating a look for my apartment. She is a great listener and collaborator, who has helped turn an overwhelming experience into a fun and easy one. Without her, I wouldn't have even known where to start, but she guided me along every step of the way.

Ariel was amazing to work with! We moved to a new apartment right before our second child was born and Ariel helped me find child friendly decor that was not childish. She picked out the perfect paint colors and found the perfect accent pieces. I can be slightly obsessive and Ariel didn’t mind all of my emails and questions and was super responsive and so easy to work with. I can’t wait to move to a house and work with her again!

Rochelle M.

Ariel went above and beyond to help decorate my new apartment; not only sending me amazing furniture options but also creating mood boards, and following through to help streamline the purchasing process. She has such chic taste and is so easy to talk to--I recommend her 100%!

My room looks amazing, and I can't believe it's the same place! Ariel has great taste and I'd be happy to work with her again.

I am just thrilled to have found Homepolish! I loved working with Ariel—she has the best taste! She is so timely, responsive, and creative—which very honestly is an unusual combination. She is so gracious and a pleasure to work with. I am a Homepolish evangelist!
