Testimonials

As a long time South Florida General Contractor, I recently had the pleasure of working with FLOURISH-Delray Design on a home renovation in Gulfstream. Creative Director Janet Ireland was insightful and effective in making the selections on this project and the end result was nothing less than spectacular. Sometimes designers can slow the job down but Janet's decision making capability kept the job right on track. I look forward to working again with Janet and FLOURISH-Delray Design.

Thanks to Janet, our Delray Beach condo looks amazing! Every time we walk in the front door, we smile when we see all the changes she made. She eliminated all the stress that comes with the decision-making process—even though we were in Vermont while the project was being done. The final results were outstanding. My favorite improvement was the way Janet transformed our bedroom from “Blah” to “Ahhh”. We couldn’t be happier with all the updates!

My fiancé and I bought a condo in Delray Beach as a second home. Great idea, until we realized how hard it would be to design and furnish the condo from Maryland! Our realtor recommended Janet and we couldn’t have been more pleased. From concept to execution, Janet managed the entire process. She made sure to involve us throughout the design phase, and proposed a look that matched our taste for a classic beach “feel.” She handled all of the details, including purchasing all furniture and design elements. The condo looks great, and more importantly truly feels like a home away from home! Janet Ireland is a trusted design professional who is wonderful to work with and I recommend her without reservation.

Janet was instrumental in every phase of reinventing my Delray apartment. We met to plan two bathroom renovations. I had no idea where to start. Janet and I shopped together for wall and floor tiles, lighting, cabinets, fixtures, counters, sinks and toilets. The only thing that I said “No” to was taking a photo of me testing out the toilet seats! When I left Florida for the summer, Janet interacted with the contractor, sent me photos and kept me up to date on the renovation project. The real fun started when we selected all new furniture and lamps for the living room and terrace. Janet made suggestions I would have never thought to consider. She encouraged me to see things differently—for instance, she recommended the 3-piece sectional for the living room which turned out to be perfect! My accessories even look better with Janet’s keen eye for placement. When purchasing paintings and having them hung, I seek her opinion. I LOVE everything and wish I had more to redo!

My experience with Janet Ireland as a decorator has been a learning experience for me from a very thoughtful, no nonsense decorator. She listens and advises sensibly.

Janet Ireland, from Flourish Delray Design, is an amazingly creative lady with a knack for capturing the genuine identity and spirit of whatever she is designing. I have experienced her creative talent on several occasions and was amazed by her keen ability to inspiringly transform spaces and objects. Her style is elegantly understated. Above all, she is easy to work with and loves what she does. I am not accustomed to working with decorators and was apprehensive about letting anyone have a say on how I should decorate my new home. However, I was pleasantly surprised after spending time with Janet. She took the time to get to know me and my tastes, and made several invaluable suggestions that both honored and enhanced my individual style. She showed me how to showcase certain items that I cherished, with simple rearrangements that felt comfortable and true to my taste. I also experienced her originality and resourcefulness with her decorations for two important events for the Delray Chamber of Commerce. It's typical of her style to be practical and creative with whatever is at hand. It is with great pleasure that I encourage others to entrust their decorating projects to Janet.

I love Janet's sense of style and color. She recently came to the home we are renting in Delray Beach. In two short hours, Janet transformed our living room, dining room and two bedrooms. Using pictures and furnishings that we already had, she changed the look and feel of our home. Now we enjoy entertaining friends and family at "our place". Janet is great to work with, can work with any budget, and has fabulous ideas for interiors and garden spaces.

I can't thank Janet enough for guiding me through the process of renovating my outdated interiors to create a beautiful, comfortable living space. After living in the same house for 21 years and having raised 4 children, there were many memories in place, so I was reluctant to make changes. To invite a decorator in was not going to be easy for either of us! However, with Janet, it proved to be such an enjoyable and fun experience. Along with selecting some new furniture, carpet, paint colors, lighting and window coverings for 2 living areas and 2 bedrooms, she managed my fear of change and pulled it all together. She took the time to get to know what was important to our family about our living areas and how to make the space work best. Janet had an uncanny insight into interpreting my vision and seemed to know just exactly what I would love. I am delighted with the beautiful results! If you are going to hire a decorator, hire Janet!

Janet Ireland is the BEST! I first learned of her when I saw her work at a client's house and he raved about her.
When it came time to do some work at my house, she worked with me on my terms and I was impressed with both her expert knowledge and her honest personality. I knew I did not have time to do a lot of work, so I was up front with her and her recommendations were perfect. You won't be sorry hiring Janet.

When my friend and fellow businesswoman, Janet, told me that she was leaving Texas, I was saddened. But she enlisted my help with a long-distance refurbishing of her furniture prior to her move to Florida. I am dazzled by her talent, organizational skills and eye for all things beautiful. In my long association with her, I have found Janet to be intuitive and creative as well as a master of color and composition. I will greatly miss our collaborations.

"Congratulations, Delray!"

In the projects we have worked on together, Janet made very nice color choices. I noticed she worked well with other contractors on the job, too, which always makes it easier to get the job done.

Several years ago, when I downsized to a smaller home and needed advice on sprucing up both the exterior and the interior, Janet helped me achieve the look I wanted without breaking my budget. I found myself moving again recently, this time to an older and larger home which desperately needed some updating. Janet again provided me with creative ideas for freshening up both the inside and outside spaces while keeping the original feel of the house. In both cases, Janet helped me articulate my vision of what I wanted my home to be.

As a real estate broker, I am always in need of a designer with great taste who can deliver services in a timely manner. It has been a pleasure to work with Flourish-Delray Design. Janet's work is creative because she dares to think outside the box. Sometimes it's the little details that matter. She sees the detail and provides a finished product second to none. Thank you, Janet, for being there for me and my customers.
