“Danielle has an amazing eye for color and design, the mind of an efficient organizer and manager, and the dedication and craft of a true artist. Working with her for nearly twenty years, I was constantly impressed by her ability to create exhibitions of breathtaking beauty, to organize and plan effectively, and to work successfully and collaboratively with colleagues from every department of the Harvard Art Museums, often under great scheduling and budget pressures. In her role as a color specialist, I have found her to have an inerring sense of what works, along with a great reserve of patience and the ability to listen to her clients and help them arrive at interior color schemes that make walking into your home a delight. She is a thorough professional in whatever she undertakes, and a great person to work with.”

“Danielle’s aesthetics, expertise, and wonderful sense of color helped me through a testing period when I was choosing a new palette of colors for my walls. I could not have done it without her skills, artistry, patience, sense of humor, and her ability to understand and interpret my wishes and taste. She handled my lack of focus and nebulous ideas about colors with tact and patience and, in the process, helped me bring to light a sense of self and the atmosphere I wanted to create in my home. Danielle knows colors inside out for sure but, more importantly, she knows how to access and interpret the inner, covert hunches of her clients. I am currently enjoying the new colors in all the rooms of my home!”

“Danielle’s keen sense of color really helped us move beyond basic, boring white walls in our new home. She guided us toward beautiful colors that worked with our decor and furniture. Danielle came very well prepared and she is very easy to work with. At the same time, she has great design sensibilities that are fresh and exciting.”

—Daniel Abramson, private client, Lexington, MA

“Danielle project-managed my kitchen renovation; I was impressed with her knowledge, professionalism and performance: she dealt with all of the workers, saving me several headaches. She consulted with me about colors for the floor and walls, respected my opinions, and gently, patiently nudged me toward a more elegant palette. She painted my kitchen with expert skill; lovingly restored my antique kitchen windows including reglazing and painting. Danielle is an exceptional craftsperson and very knowledgeable about historic houses and materials. I appreciate her attention to detail, her ability to see the large picture, and her sense of humor. She is careful, methodical and very responsible. I’m completely pleased with the results, and I recommend her wholeheartedly.”

—Elaine Wintman, private client, Salem, MA

“Danielle is a consummate design professional. Having admired her work for years as a former colleague at Harvard Art Museums, I have also had the great pleasure of working with her on two home color consultations as well. Danielle has a gift for listening to her clients and guiding them towards the best choices. She has advised me on the selection of colors for a bedroom, an office, and a library--all are colors that I continue to fall in love with day after day, and bring such a lovely presence to my home. I would recommend her aesthetic guidance to anyone!”
