Here are a few letters I loved…
– Kelleigh from Dallas, Oregon
I could cry. Really cry. You know when you watch those HGTV shows and the designer does the reveal to her client and the client covers their mouth with their hand and starts crying…this is me. I am in awe. Shock. My husband loves what you have done. We are both laying here in bed discussing all the elements and how to implement them. I can’t wait!
Girl, you have found your calling!
I’m beyond happy. Beyond your biggest fan. Well worth the wait. Completely satisfied. Elated!

I was at my wits end trying to deal with an odd shaped living room filled with mix-matched furniture. I loved the look of each furniture piece, but there was no real style or cohesive look and yet I kept searching craigslist and garage sales to score new pieces to add to the pile. Lucky for me, while searching the internet for cottage designs, I found Layla and her Lettered Cottage. I loved her home remodel story, her cute hubby and her spunky attitude. After a few months of reading her blog and admiring her home, I decided to sign up for a Virtual Consultation for my living room. For some crazy reason, I thought “there is nothing she can come up with that I haven’t already thought of, but I’ll give it a try anyway.” Silly, silly me. When I first received her virtual consultation design plan I thought “who’s beautiful living room is that?” Mine!! She used all of my current furniture (minus a few items) and had me add a new rug to the foyer (I didn’t know I had a foyer!) Her virtual consultation provided many different views of her redesign and her detailed written suggestions. I loved her design so much that I incorporated every detail – right down to the candle sticks. I am thrilled and will be getting consultations for every other room in my home!

When I first visited her blog I wondered how she would advise others who had different styles than her own. Well, no worries there because Layla seems to just know. I know that has been true for me. I get so excited when I see an e mail from Layla because I know it is going to excite me! And besides being a gifted decorator, she is just plain sweet and easy to work with…someone who you would love to sit down and share a cup of coffee with. She has made me come to love decorating as well as finding a good bargain. I would highly recommend her for any of your decorating needs, whether it be a single design question or a full consult.

Thank you so much for all of your help, Layla!
– PJ from Milford, Delaware
Working with Layla was an absolute delight. I love interior design myself, and hadn’t planned on using a professional to decorate when we built our new house in 2008. However, there were certain rooms where I just felt stuck and scared to move forward. I contacted Layla and she was professional, gracious, and FUN to work with throughout the entire process. She was responsive to things I did and did not like and worked with me until we found ideas that I knew were perfect for our space! More than anything, Layla continually surprised me with ideas that I never would have thought of on my own-that was most valuable to me. I have called on her for multiple design consultations and have referred her to friends and all of my blog readers!

I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this room. It is exactly what I was wanting and dreaming about. Really- you are amazing. You have a true gift. You’ve never even met me and I feel like you’ve captured my personality in this room. I cannot wait to get started. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I will be in touch if I have any more questions.
