"We have had a very pleasant experience and more importantly an outstanding result working with Gwen and Directions in Design Inc. Gwen was instrumental in reconstructing and designing our corporate headquarters. Gwen was able to take our ideas and thoughts about our culture concerning working environment for our employees and bring life to these ideas with our new office center. It has always been a pleasure working with Gwen as she is thoughtful, listens to you about your goals and then brings professionalism and results that exceed expectations. We now have a very comfortable but modern facility that all of our employees enjoy and we are quite proud of."

"Gwen helped us design our optometric office when we first opened many years ago, and again when we renovated in this year. We would not have been able to do the job without her. She has created an environment which is easy to work in, pleasing to look at, and virtually indestructible. We've worked with many designers over the years on many projects, and she is by far the most efficient and reliable."

"I have known and worked with Gwen on various home renovations as well as a business office renovation. I believe the first project I worked on with her was help with my dining room design. That project was from the start up as the only thing at the time in my dining room was my children's toy box and builders white paint on the walls. That project was about 12 years ago and I absolutely still today love my dining room. My most extensive home project was a total gutting and expansion of my kitchen. That project involved so many decisions of which Gwen helped guide me thru daily. I had a contractor at my home every day for 8 months. Gwen was available to me as well as my contractor everyday during that project. Her personal attention is so comforting. Her attention to detail is amazing! Gwen has received many referrals from me after friends and family have been in my home. In addition Gwen also designed my personal executive business office.
Every time a client comes into it the typical reaction is "Wow your office is beautiful". It is my pleasure to offer such a well deserved positive testimonial"

Susan - Randolph, New Jersey
"I worked with Gwen for 3 years in the design of our new home. Gwen assisted me from the design phase through the completion of the build and the initial interior decorating. She helped me through the hundreds of decisions that needed to be made. I was on a budget and dealing with some difficult restrictions but, Gwen worked with me to get everything done. It was a pleasure working with her."

"My family and I moved to New Jersey about a year ago. I'd been looking for an interior designer online and had lined up a few to interview. Gwen was the first person I met and decided to cancel the rest of my appointments. I started working with her that same day. She was, and is, (I still continue to work with her) absolutely professional, very friendly and most importantly accepting of our tastes. She never pushed me to do anything that I wasn't comfortable with, nor, did she let me commit blunders. She has a great eye for color and can envision a room's true potential. She is very flexible in her methods and worked within our budget. Working with her has been an absolute pleasure!!!"
Radhika - Warren, New Jersey
"It has been a pleasure working with Gwen. She has an excellent eye for color and detail and takes time to explore creative opportunities with her clients. The end result is that the design exceeds expectations. Her network of contractors is extensive and this allows the client to interview and choose the contractor that best meets their individual needs. Gwen has helped me with two houses now and I highly recommend her."

Gwen got to know us and our life styles and she accommodates them accordingly in her schedule. She listens to our ideas and then creates them, with her own uniqueness, within our specifications. Her follow-up is consistent. We truly appreciate Gwen's professional services."
Clare and Greg - Lebanon, New Jersey
"I recently worked with Gwen in redesigning and expanding my laundry room, redecorating my family room and kitchen areas. Gwen was creative yet practical in her approach to my project. Gwen has an incredible eye when it comes to designing spaces and mixing colors. She isn't pushy like other designers and will work within your budget to give you the most for your money. Gwen was a pleasure to work with."
Julie - Media, Pennsylvania
"It was truly a pleasure working with Gwen. She handled every aspect of each project, from the beautiful crown mouldings in the library to the gorgeous chandelier in the dining room, and created living spaces in my home that get rave reviews from everyone who visits. I highly recommend her for any decorating project - big or small!"
Robin - Sussex County, New Jersey
"Gwen is working with us on a new home construction project in North Carolina. She is an amazing professional with a superb eye. She is a pleasure to work with and strikes a good balance between style and functionality. Gwen is absolutely full of "wow" ideas!"
Eileen and Barry - Somerset County, New Jersey
"Gwen Nagorsky has helped me with several projects in my home. It is a pleasure to work with Gwen, not only because of her great design sense, but because of her unending patience with my indecision, while always maintaining a sense of humor. She encourages me to expand my thinking, while keeping within my traditional tastes. I appreciate that Gwen is able to guide me in the right direction with no pressure."
Valerie - Morris County, New Jersey
"Gwen was very easy to talk to, and quickly understood what we wanted. Even though our job was fairly small in scope and budget, Gwen always took it seriously and provided multiple options for various parts of our project. She was always on the same page, and understood why we liked or disliked something. She never pushed her opinions too hard, but made us understand with confidence her choices when we weren't initially sure about something. I think we challenged her a little, which she seemed to enjoy and the results show that. We are very pleased with our room and the services she provided. When we sit in our living room now and look around, there isn't a thing we would change, which is unusual for us. We've received nothing but compliments, and most people are quietly in shock when they walk in because the room looks great without trying too hard. If they only knew..."
