We bought a house a few months ago in Irvine. The home had a traditional interior and we wanted to redesign it along with modern lines and change out our old furniture to create a Mid Century Modern look. The Divas came highly recommended and we immediately hit it off with them. They were always accessible, quickly understood our tastes and styles, and promptly set out with the project. We have had endless compliments from friends and family. The Divas made everything so easy and pleasant! Full marks!!!

The Diva’s were fantastic! They listened to our concerns and provided various ideas and solutions for our kitchen and laundry room remodel. Thanks to them we have a brand new kitchen that is functional and according to my wife ‘gorgeous’! Thanks for all your help – we couldn’t have done this without you.

The Diva’s design team are consummate professionals and I am in awe of their design abilities and seamless coordination skills. I absolutely adore my new space and I am forever grateful to them. Everyone that walks into my living room comments on how beautiful it is. From the artwork, to the paint color to the new fireplace – it just creates such a wonderful space for me and my family. Thank you so much.
