From the beginning, Gwen and Amber provided invaluable guidance with paint colors, flooring, lighting, window treatments and more. In addition, they were very creative in the design of a custom dining table and our bathroom vanities.
After months of living in a construction zone, it was installation day! Following a long work day, we returned home to find that Gwen and Amber had every detail in place. It was so emotional... we couldn’t believe our eyes as we stood and stared in awe. It was truly like one of the makeover shows you see on TV.
In summary, we would strongly recommend Bayberry Cottage for your decorating needs. They were there every step of the way. Thank you Gwen and Amber, it is amazing what you have done for us and we want everyone to know that you have a wonderful talent to make someone's dream home a reality.

A rare find to come upon
Having been in the Window Treatment Business since 1987, I find it a delight to work with Decorators of the caliber of Gwen and Amber. Their down to earth attitude combined with great amounts of design knowledge shine through their smiles and occasional heartfelt laughs. It truly is a rare find to come upon and have the delight of combining my window treatment experience with a business that has the same commitment to customer service
A real pleasure to work with
Gwen and Amber have the ability to make every project unique and every home personal. I have been working with them on a professional level for many years and have seen them in action on dozens of projects. I have witnessed the way they interact with their Clients and their Contractors; always professional, always approachable and friendly, and always exemplary. A real pleasure to work with.

They love what they do
Gwen and Amber’s care and attention through all phases of our project was brilliant. Their commitment to fulfilling our wishes and vision was more than we could have hoped for. They always responded to our many questions and concerns in a professional and timely manner.
Their expertise and calm characters were a perfect combination!
It was clear from our first meeting that they love what they do, really seek to understand their clients and deliver on their product with a great team of contractors! We were especially pleased with their thoroughness and commitment right to the very end.
We would, without reservation, recommend Gwen, Amber and Bayberry Cottage.

I wish I could give 10 stars to Gwen at Bayberry Cottage! I have enjoyed working with her twice; remodeling a summer home and an urban condo. In both spaces Gwen used her eye for style and color and her attention to detail to make our homes perfect!
Detail, detail, detail!
The builder we selected had worked with the Bayberry Team, so it seemed like the right choice. The scariest part was, we could not be there for the project! Well, we did not need to worry. Gwen, Amber and the entire team listened well and did a first class job. Detail, detail, detail!!! We are happy.

An outstanding Job
Gwen and her team have done an outstanding job helping us decorate our home. She seamlessly combined our two different styles and put together a beautiful space for us. Working within a tight budget, she skillfully combined fresh new paint colors, window treatments and selected pieces of furniture to work with our existing collection to give us our dream home.

We hired Gwen and Amber to redesign our Living Room. We wanted it to have more of a “cottage” feel and have more seating. It was a difficult space to work with. We are very pleased with the end result! We subsequently hired them to rework our 4 bedrooms and upstairs loft - once again, fabulous results!

Working with Gwen and Amber for a second time was a special challenge! While living in China, we had purchased a new home in Michigan, sight unseen, that would need major renovations! Gwen and Amber took on the challenge and worked with us virtually to create a home that not only reflected our style, but incorporated our treasures from around the world! Everything came together on time and in budget. You could not find two Interior Designers who are more creative, cost conscious or elegant than Amber and Gwen. They are trustworthy, innovative and have an amazing work ethic. They took our ideas and made them better, I would use them again if I bought another home regardless of where I lived as I know they can and will work virtually. They are a great team!

Intelligent and extremely knowledgeable
When we hired Gwen and Amber to help us with our first condo, we focused on maximizing the space as it is small and the desired outcome of the renovation and design was to create a warm, welcoming, casual environment. We had the most fun working with them as they are creative, intelligent and extremely knowledgeable. We trusted their advice and they created a wonderful showcase in our 1000sf condo. The attention to detail, color scheme, as well as competently working with our contractor to ensure everything blended to maximize space - amazing!
Love Bayberry Cottage! I remember when I first walked into the store and just fell in love with everything, especially the warm and cosy feel. I asked Gwen if she could help me recreate that same feeling in my home. We started with an old log cabin and turned it into a cottage home. The overwhelming response I hear from everyone that enters is how warm and inviting it is.
Bayberry has since designed another Michigan residence for me, winning 1st place for condominium design and decor from the Kalamazoo Builders Association.
From personal service, great vision and overall design, they are the best!
We built a new house and asked Bayberry Cottage to help us furnish it. They were able to get an idea of our tastes by having us post our likes and dislikes on Houzz. They did an excellent job of giving us a couple of different options, choosing furniture that we loved, and even helping us pick out paint colors. When possible they worked in some our existing accessories. I’ve known Gwen and Amber for years and would recommend them to others.
