This letter is to express my deepest gratitude for all the work you did for my new home office.
When I first decided to use a decorator, the choice was clear: I would use you. But now that the home office is ready to go, I have an entirely different appreciation for the work you do. Simply put: I could not have done it without you; you are much more than a "decorator."
Your input was far greater than my expectations from a decorator. You assisted me in selecting not just furniture, patterns, colors, texture and combinations, but you also helped me with the design, use of space and layout, the selection of vendors, the hiring of service providers, and most importantly the coordination of it all.
You had not mentioned, and I was not expecting, that you would supervise the work of the service providers and coordinate with vendors for orders and deliveries. Naturally, I thought I would have to do that. Instead, due to your continued involvement, I only had to worry about running my law practice.
Your professionalism and hands-on approach made the entire project transparent to me. In effect, you handled everything regarding my new home office - huge issues (the coordination of the furniture delivery and installation) through the simplest of details (hanging pictures).
In sum, when choosing you as my decorator, unbeknownst to me, I essentially hired a project manger. You most certainly exceeded my expectations! It is refreshing to see a professional take so much pride in their work.
Once again, all I can say is thank you. Please feel free to use me as a reference.

I just wanted to take moment to "thank you', for all your past design work. I know we have done business together for the past 27 years; however, I feel that every once in a while someone should be recognized. My friends, Liz & Dan Ekstein have just purchased a home in North Miami Beach. They have been to many of my homes before (all of which you designed). Liz wants to call you, as she is so impressed with what you have created in our newest home.
Actually, I think your two best productions were the home in the Keys and the second time you did Oleander Drive in Hallandale. Of coarse, my situation was quite different in those days; however, your keen eye and innovative talent led to quick sales with each of my properties. Somehow I am kind of sorry that both homes sold so quickly; I might have been able to keep one of them!!!
In any event, from my starter home throughout all you have always created a feeling of "home" with magnificence.
I have given your number to the Ekstein's ; I am certain they will call you. I hope so, as the only time we get to see each other is when you are working on a home for me. I miss your sense of humor.
Hope the Ekstein's turn out to be your clients.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year,

My kitchen was redone a few years ago. I had my mother in law, Ronnie of Ronnie Interior Designs, help me redo my kitchen. She was instrumental in designing my kitchen and working with my contractor to bring it all to fruition. I went from having a boring white kitchen to having beautiful wooden cabinets and a new customized kitchen that is both functional and attractive. It could be in any magazine and it is much more user friendly as well.
A year later she helped design my closets to have them include built ins and become much more functional. I gained a lot of space and I now find it more organized and attractive. It is much easier to keep up with things now that it is well organized and spaced out more efficiently.
I would recommend Ronnie as a designer and find her helpful, incredibly hardworking and talented. She has more energy than most people and will do what it takes to get the job done whether you have a redo or just need some window treatment or a furniture order.
Good luck and happy designing!

I am overwhelming pleased with the outcome of my home!
Ronnie was a pleasure to work with.
She helped me design a new kitchen; She knocked down a wall, designed cabinets, and chose granite countertops and back splash. The rest of my home had tile pulled out and replaced with wonderful tile, carpet was replaced and paint and baseboards were coordinated.
I would recommend her to anyone.
Thank you Ronnie,
We are so excited with how the house is shaping up due to all your effort, time and expert advice. You should be truly proud of your work, commitment and talent.
Thank you also for all your patience and understanding.
You will always be a large part of making 625 Vilabella our dream home,
Suzan & Mark
There are special moments when one person reaches out to another and makes a difference that no one else can make.
I just want to say thanks for being there when I needed you most.
You are truly amazing !!! You really went all out and gave me an experience of a lifetime the way you handled every minute detail in making my home office Simply Stunning.
To Potential Clients;
It is with much pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation. Ronnie Halpern, has been designing for my family for over 2 decades, overseeing large and small projects over the years; each project given the same amount of attention; no detail unimportant to accomplish the total look.
Somehow, she manages to give each of us our individual look and style, yet keeps us practical and within budget, something not easy to accomplish in today's market.
I have done a number of renovations in other states over the years, but the ones I have done with Ronnie have been the most successful and satisfying.
I guess the trick is that she feels she is not only creating a beautiful house for you, but a home you and your family will live in and enjoy.
With warmest regards,
Dr. & Mrs. Mark I. Farber

Hats off to Ronnie Halpern for her conscientiousness and ability to create beauty. In every way, we remain excited by and grateful for Ronnie's work in and for our home. There was a great deal to do when we bought our house, including solving many technical problems--some of which we knew of initially, and some of which we discovered along the way. Ronnie was able to solve them all. She recommended the best contractors to do all tasks efficiently, promptly, and without fuss. She was usually ahead of schedule (and never behind) in getting back to us with ideas, suggested products and finishings, and directing the actual work.
Ronnie is a true artist: she was able to understand and run with exactly the decor and look we wanted and to choose and design things of beauty, including designing (with all required specs) our entire, unique bedroom furniture set, an incredible exotic-wood library, and various, different configurations of built-in custom furniture--all with artistry and proportion. She hired fantastic tradesman to build and install all the pieces. Ronnie knows how to create statement, subdue, and everything in between. She can work from scratch or integrate the items you already have. She is easy and friendly, has a good sense of humor, and is very ethical and fair. Though our house is done (and we love what she did), we continue to work with her as needed and to recommend her to all our family, friends, and acquaintances.
