Praise for Eye Design House
"I can't say enough good things about Danette Lawrence and Eye Design House! She was so easy to work with and such a great value. She returns calls promptly, calls to confirm the day before, and shows up on time as promised! I interviewed other stagers, and I felt like Danette really listened to what I said I needed. She did not try to oversell her services and agreed I did not need full staging for the whole house. I only needed full staging for some rooms and finishing touches to make the home feel more cohesive. She came armed with soft decor, tasteful art and furniture for the spaces we needed! This woman singlehandedly had my house and studio apartment staged in four to five hours and it looked amazing! The colors all popped and each space she worked on looked inviting, but not overdone. I felt her services added value to our house and gave it a welcoming, finished look. Again, she was worth every penny".
"I have been a professional fine artist for 25 years and participated in Open Studios since 1972. In addition, I have experience in design and construction of four coffee stores.
Danette helped me visualize and create a wonderful environment of my 1200 sq.ft. studio of fine art. We collaborated together and displayed over 200 of my paintings from 10" x 10" to 48" x 60".
Danette was very encouraging, wonderful to collaborate and explore visual design with. I give my "thumbs up" to anyone who would like to design and create with Danette".
"I had the pleasure of working with Danette Lawrence on a workshop she created for Open Studios Art Tour.
I especially appreciated her thoroughness and attention to detail that meant the 40 attendees left the workshop with a much better ability to do a professional and eye-catching job when opening their studio to the public.
The workshop title was "The Art of Placement". Danette covered many topics including Entering the Studio, Cohesive Flow, Showcasing the New, Editing your Work, and more. She used props which really brought her message to life - a must when working with visually oriented folks like artists!
I am glad I had the chance to work with Danette. I only wish more of the artists in our tour would embrace and adopt her methods for showcasing their work".

"This lady has many skills! From concept design and placement to refreshing a space using what is readily available, I worked with Danette as my visual merchandise manager for over eight years. In that time, she was tasked with showcasing new Annieglass collections, conceptualizing and installing window displays, tablescapes and display kiosks, curating and displaying First Friday artists' work, along with mocking up special event tables. She worked to convert foot traffic into buyers with her merchandise placement. Danette's got talent"!
