Client Reviews

We feel very fortunate to have found Pam for our interior design and subcontracting work. Beginning with our first meeting we were confident she would be able to help make our house beautiful and functional. At that first meeting, Pam was able to discern our tastes from a few inspiration pictures and develop a plan. She is as skilled in listening to her clients as she is in designing for them. I appreciated the way she took our projects from overwhelming to focused. My husband and I were impressed by her ability to stay in budget and on a time line. She has a gift for mixing in inexpensive with high quality to gain maximum visual & functional impact. 

Pam has an extensive cadre of subcontractors. Her detail oriented approach and close relationship with her subs results in high quality, timely work. She is the only general contractor that we have used who finished our project early! Our house is a home that we love being in due to Pam’s help.

Pam helped us with a total remodel of 2 bathrooms and the kitchen. Everything turned out just gorgeous! She is a true professional and she and her team stand behind their work. She also did window treatments for us and found a few other pieces of furniture that I just love. And a bonus…she’s so sweet!

-Debbie Dunne

Pam has helped me with three different homes over the last 10 years. She is a delight to work with and has great team of craftsmen who provide high quality service under her watchful eye. Pam has done everything for me from design and supervision of total kitchen and bath renovations to custom bedding, pillows and window treatments to custom decorative paint treatments. She has a fabulous way of taking my ideas and style and integrating them in ways I would never have thought of. She is imaginative, resourceful, efficient, and professional. You’ll love working with Pam and her team.

I have known and worked with Pam for about 5 years now. She helped me “freshen up” my old house – and then when we moved recently, she was invaluable! She helped me place my existing furnishings/decor and purchase new items as needed. Her resources are incredible! I feel like she did an excellent job – without breaking the bank. I will continue to use her for years!

-Jaki Scholfield

I have used Finishing Effects twice, 2 years ago for a major remodel of our business and recently to decorate our new home. Both experiences were exceptional. Pam is a joy to work with. She is a true professional and her skills as a designer are only exceeded by the level of customer service she provides. Highly recommended!!!
