I can’t say enough good things about Wendy’s skills as an interior designer. Wendy approached our project from her perspective as an artist, but she also understands that a home is actually lived in, so each piece of furniture she selected is functional, comfortable and attractive. I love how everything fits so well together in our small space!

Wendy was always reliable and respectful of my time. She is a hardworking, thoughtful and thorough professional. Wendy has completed two interior design projects for us,  and I look forward to the next opportunity to work together.  She is, in my opinion, the very best!

I was contemplating making my first large personal investment in a luxurious condo in downtown Scottsdale in 2010 and I was looking for someone who would help me design a beautiful, modern, sophisticated home that was unique. After Wendy surveyed my rented apartment and personal items she participated in looking for a property that she could envision becoming the beautiful place I was looking for. Her foresight into the place that would match my dreams was incredible! I would not fully understand this until the final product was delivered.

I completely left the details up to her form the wooden wall to the new travertine floors and the color on the walls. To keep costs down she would always have options to consider when finalizing the plan. When I finally sold the place, I received countless comments on how much people loved the wall! I also walked away with significant profit thanks to her designs.

While living nearly 3,000 miles apart, Wendy was able to transfer my living room into my very own sanctuary. I live in South Carolina on a marsh with large picture windows overlooking the always moving water and a huge live oak tree that houses many Great Blue Herons, Egrets and Wood Storks. I had visions of a 9 x 12 rug that would reflect the motion of the water and would blend with a large picture I have on the wall of three canoes sitting on the shore. She sent me several sketches and there wasn't one I did not like. She was able to capture exactly what I wanted. That is, a comfortable, warm and inviting beach house. Wendy will always be the one that I will go to when I want remodeling done. In the competitive business she is in, Wendy is professional, she respects your ideas and is so easy to work with.

Having worked with Ackerman Art and Design over the years, I have found Wendy Ackerman to be very professional, approachable and reliable. Our last project together was a master suite remodel. Her process stats with a vision for the room and follows with an innovative approach. This approach integrated a variety of new materials with existing elements in an elegant harmonious way. Wendy has impeccable taste and was able to interpret our desires into a very soothing, beautiful new master suite. I highly recommend Ackerman Art and Design for your design needs. You will not be disappointed.

Wendy Ackerman is the quintessential designer - a pleasure to work with. She listens to her clients’ ideas and enhances them with her own creative suggestions. She is sensitive to a client’s budget and works with resources that range from conservative to extravagant in cost. While she often uses local resources, she doesn’t hesitate to go to design centers in Los Angeles, New York and sometimes abroad. Some of my favorite items are living room lamps created by an artist in Israel. Wendy will work with an architect and builder if someone is planning a new home or updating a current residence. She designed and helped build my unique living room fireplace. 

Wendy is an artist and this is evident in her unique selections. She designs furniture, and she designed and furnished her own fabulous home. Wendy treats her clients professionally. She is always prompt for meetings, never cancels and follows up on orders letting clients know when they can expect a delivery or instillation.  It is always a pleasure to refer someone to Wendy because I know they will be as pleased with her as I have been!

It has been my pleasure to work with Ackerman Art and Design for the past 28 years. Wendy's aesthetic, her professionalism, attention to detail, energy and enthusiasm all combine to make each job an enjoyable and memorable experience for both her clients and colleagues. She holds herself and her associates to the highest standard, and it always shows in the results. Each job is unique and requires it's own particular solutions, so formulaic, trendy, or cookie-cutter solutions are out. Her vast knowledge of materials, finishes and processes allows her to find an elegant and functional solution for every design challenge.

I am a ceramic tile installer. I have worked with Ackerman Art & Design on many projects of Wendy Ackerman's original designs as well as other standard tile installations. 

Wendy Ackerman has a fantastic personality and is a great artist. 

She can quickly realize the full potential of a given area and decorate it with great taste. 

She is constantly researching new products and stays informed on current trends as well as suitability and function of those products. 

Wendy is very 'Hands On' and stays involved on her projects. She is easy to work with and the results are stunning! 

I would definitely recommend Ackerman Art & Design for all your design needs.

I was referred to Wendy Ackerman of Ackerman Art and Design from a friend who is a general contractor. He suggested I contact her to see if she could help. What started out as 1 hour “point me in the right direction” consultation turned into what would be a wonderful transformation and not to mention a fantastic relationship. Over the next few years Wendy turned a house into a place I now truly call home.

 Having lived in my house for more than 15 years it was definitely in need of a change. To be perfectly honest, I was extremely confused and horrified at undertaking such a project on my own. Especially not knowing whether or not to simply paint, redecorate or remodel my entire house. First we decided on remodeling the hall bathroom. After seeing how unbelievable the outcome, it was only natural to do the master bathroom as well. Two years later we had completely remodeled my entire home. 

As a valley business owner my days are very busy and my time is quite limited. I did not have the time to run from one showroom to another, pick paint colors, artwork or even something as simply as bedding. During the entire process Wendy made everything very effortless. No matter the size, big or small. She was great at always having multiple options to choose from. From custom cabinets to an exquisite carved Japanese panel, several handmade rugs from Nepal that she personally designed by watercolor to provide a 100% custom look. Custom made furniture from local Artisans that resides in every room. I have received numerous compliments on her unbelievable design decisions and incredible attention to detail. 

 

When the project was complete it was bitter sweet because I realized that we wouldn’t have our daily talks. We still communicate on a weekly basis and I'm grateful for that. I would like to thank Wendy Ackerman for your vision and patience with me. I would also like to thank my friend Allen Yates for the referral.

As a busy professional Wendy is the perfect designer. Not only is she tremendously talented in the area of color, design and home aesthetic, she is an excellent listener. She was able to listen to me and determine the design style that would work for me. Wendy is creative and resourceful. She is well connected in the design world and if something is not available commercially... she knows where and how to have it made to complete the perfect design. 

She is a trusted professional.. Simply the best!!

I've worked with Wendy on several custom furniture design projects. I greatly respect her depth of design history and her mastery of color, form and texture. 

More than a designer, Wendy is the consummate 'artist'. Her ability to creatively compose all of her knowledge and skills and her commitment to finding 'the' solution that mirrors the unique individual aesthetic of her clients is very impressive. 

Yes yes yes, I recommend Ackerman Art & Design!
