Testimonials

“The work Vivid has done with our home has truly changed my family's life. We began working with Vivid 6 years ago during a time where everyone was building a new house rather than spending the time and money to fix up existing houses. My husband and I loved our neighborhood, community and house but our home needed love. We began working with vivid on our master suite. The time and attention in detail Vivid put into our project was amazing. Six years laterwe still absolutely love our bedroom and bathroom and have since used Vivid for many other projects. Most recently they helped us remodel our kitchen and basement. Once again the finished projects were absolutely amazing. They kept within our budget, style and character of our home. Because of their work, my house feels like a home and a place where we are proud to entertain.”

“We have used Vivid Home & Vivid Interior Design for two different projects. We first worked with Danielle to decorate/refresh and give our lake home a "Wow" factor. Because she did such a wonderful job, two years later we decided to build a new home and incorporate her into the construction and design process. We could not be more satisfied! Danielle held our hands through out the entire selection process. Everything from Architectural design, Exterior design, Paint, Tile, Carpet, Hard surfaces, Lighting & Hardware. The process was seemless & documented for each sub-contractor. We even used some of Danielle's contractors and they are some of the most professional workers in the industry. (We have built 6 homes). Danielle and her team, (especially Megan), have a crazy sense of space, flare and design. Her sources are unique and high quality. We love how she gets excited to show us furniture and window treatments!! Vivd will take the stress out of the selection process and eliminate any questions you have over furniture sizing and lighting sizing and placement. In my opinion, this will make the difference in your home!! We continue to use Vivid for any decorating needs and I am sure we will for years.”

“I am thoroughly pleased with my experience with Vivid Interior. The service is excellent - knowledgable and talented. They were great in helping with my design projects, and I am so happy with the work they did on my home. My home is complex, and they handled it with ease and came up with very innovative solutions. I get compliments all the time and I have passed their name on to friends and family. I highly recommend them.”

“I have hired Vivid for several projects over the past 8 years. Their design services and value is excellent. The work they have done for me is unique and I appreciate that they really listen to what I want. After consulting and working with other design firms years ago, I have found Vivid to be superior and would absolutely recommend them. Their store is great as well and always fun to see what’s trending new. I will continue to look to them for my design needs.”

“In the end, what we wanted is a beautiful interior, designed by people who are talented, listen, care, communicate and work within a budget. If that describes your needs when looking for an Interior Design firm, then look no further. Danielle, Katie, Greg, and Amie deliver results (our end-product is beautiful AND functional) and are good listeners and communicators (our furnishings and accessories are entirely reflective of our style and our personality). I always felt that they had time for our questions and concerns. They offered options and were honest with their preferences, yet they were always respectful of our decisions. Additionally, Greg and Amie are masters with finishing touches. In the end, our home is exactly what we had hoped it would be, and we achieved it with people with whom we will remain friends. Danielle and her team are high integrity, highly skilled and wonderful people.”

“We have worked with Danielle and her team at Vivid Interior Design in Minneapolis on several projects and look forward to many more projects together. Their professionalism and creativity are unrivaled. We pride ourselves on offering our clients a building experience that is tailored to their specific needs and lifestyle, and Vivid Interior Design helps to streamline the process and provides our clients with a superior designed home.”

“I have worked with Danielle and her team for two years and it has been nothing but a great experience. We started working together in the middle of a renovation project and she was a critical player to a very successful project completion. In working together, we found that some of the initial efforts by architects were overdesigned, costly and overkill. She guided the design in a manner where the design was unique and beautiful but more reasonable from a cost perspective. In the end it was a look that I loved and appreciated even more.

Danielle is a great listener. I also appreciate her guiding me in new design direction versus being stuck in repeating similar looks. She was careful with this process taking the necessary time and offering ideas that lead to new looks that I really enjoy.

I also believe that I have saved money in many regards in working with her both in design, product and other services. She has a very broad experience that goes beyond interior design and product to include great landscaping insight, electronics insight and other similar areas.

Since the initial project, we have added many other jobs and I have referred her to many other people. She and her team are very hardworking and trustworthy. Check them out!”

“Danielle and Katie have been helping us design our dream house for over a year, and have been absolutely invaluable with their assistance. They have gone above in beyond and we are thrilled with how the house is turning out, it looks amazing and we could not have done it without their help! The entire team at Vivid has been nothing but professional and very friendly, and we would definitely recommend Vivid to anyone - whether your project is large or small. They are so knowledgeable about all aspects of building and design and are great at picking selections tailored to your individual taste. They have been with us every step of the way - from helping to design the floor plan of the house to helping us pick out numerous selections (and when you are building that can be a VERY overwhelming task to take on without a professional) and we often have turned to them for questions from our contractor/subcontractors that we really did not know how to answer. We love Vivid!!”

“I've worked with Danielle and the Vivid team for a few years now on my "house in progress." Most recently, I worked with her on a family room and master bathroom addition to my 1921 bungalow. Danielle helped with the design elements for the spaces (colors, finishes, electrical placement, lighting, tile, etc), PM'd certain components of the project and when complete, found great furniture for the spaces. I appreciated her attention to detail in creating new spaces for my old house that look like they may have always been there. Also, I usually come to the table with a lot of my own ideas and I'm pretty specific about what I like - her team is highly collaborative and has always been open to my ideas. In the end, i've always felt like i have a highly personalized space that's not overdesigned and feels like me. Highest recommendation!”

“I am a dentist that interviewed multiple designers for an overhaul of my office. I chose Vivid Interior Design and could not have been happier with my choice. I worked directly with Megan Meder but enjoyed the entire team. They were dependable, realistic, and always professional. I still get so much positive feedback from patients, new and old. It was a great experience working with them. My entire staff was so appreciative of their expertise and professionalism. They truly transformed my office! Thank you.”

“Our company has been working Danielle Loven and Vivid Interiors since 2001. Danielle’s taste and attention to detail are impeccable. We appreciate her design sense and the manner in which she helps guide her clients through the selection process. We would highly recommend Vivid Interiors to anyone considering the use of a interior designer on a remodel or new construction home.” - Granite-Tops

“I have worked with Danielle and the entire design team at Vivid for the past three years on our home (working through the house one room at a time) and all I can say is that they are the best at what they do, they know how to be efficient with their time, and they make amazing selections when improving and beautifying our home. They have always been mindful of the budget set forth by my husband and I and do offer choices that are "high" and "low" so that I am informed with how each element creates/adds up to the bigger picture and therefore, the final invoice. There have never been any "surprises" because the best part about them is that they communicate! I can't tell you how many designers and contractors I've worked with over the years that just don't communicate and leave so much up for surprise when receiving the final invoice. Not this team! They are absolutely the best.”

“I have worked with Vivid for years on smaller projects (dining rm furniture selection, color design, and lighting). The latest project was a complete mastersuit redesign. The designers worked me to create unique solutions that not only accommodated my budget but my space as well. The finished has far exceed my expectations.”

“Vivid did fantastic work on my new home. Hands down - best design you will find anywhere. I have friends who have used other interior design firms and I hear the horror stories. My experience with Vivid couldn't have gone more smoothly. The end results really speak to my lifestyle needs and I know it will look beautiful for years to come. I'm thrilled. Thank you, Vivid!”

“This is the third project we have used Danielle and the Vivid Design team, Katie and Greg. Why do we keep using Vivid Interiors? Before we met with Danielle, she had us start a file with pictures of kitchens we liked, furniture we like, lighting we liked and accessories we liked. When we had our first meeting with Danielle, after looking through our files, Danielle was able to establish our design style. Once that was established, our remodels were much easier to design, streamline, and execute. We have used Vivid for an exterior update, a kitchen, dining room, powder room, and message center remodel. We just completed an office, living room and sitting room remodel.

I also appreciate Danielle listening to our thoughts regarding the project design, and then her willingness to help tweak the design or change the product if we aren't quite on the same page... Which rarely happens. Danielle and her team are also flexible in who will manage the different aspects of the project. We have managed some parts of our projects and Vivid has managed other parts of our projects. We are already thinking about our next project that we will be doing with Vivid. That will be a basement remodel!”

“We did an extensive bathroom project in the $40,000 price range. Danielle was excellent to work with and helped guide us through the various aspects of the project. We had a problem with the tile that was originally put down and she helped get it replaced - a major accomplishment!”

“I found this gem driving by one day. It turned into a great relationship having them design some spaces in my home. I felt like they really listened to me and stayed on track - design and budget. Great team and beautiful work.”

“My husband and I started working with Danielle a few months ago to help us "refresh and update" our tired living room. From the very start, we knew we were in good hands for this project. Danielle listened to our needs and aspirations for our new living room. She asked us a lot of questions about our taste and lifestyle while sharing her understanding of the fact that any design would need to accommodate our family with two young boys. When it came to recommending colors, lighting, fabrics, and home furnishings, she took into account all of this. All of her recommendations matched exactly with our needs, taste and budget. In addition, Danielle and her team went above and beyond in continuously communicating with us throughout the project to address questions, discuss ideas/deliverables and finalize next steps while ensuring the project wrapped up on time too.

We are thrilled with our new living room. Danielle and her team are absolutely amazing. I strongly suggest Danielle and the Vivid team to anyone!”

“I have worked with the Vivid Team for several years on multiple projects in two different homes spanning simple design suggestion to furniture purchase to full remodeling design/material selection. Each project was handled with attention to use of space, scope of long term vision and costing scaled to my budget. I have and will continue to recommend Vivid to my friend and co-workers!”

“Danielle and her team have been outstanding helping us with every aspect of our new home. We had some challenges with our builder and they stepped in and went WAY above and beyond what was expected of them. We could not have done it without them. The whole team is very kind, considerate, pleasant and a pleasure to work with. They had great ideas, much much patience, and just overall awesome. I know sometimes reviews can be written a little over the top or exaggerated but I can honestly say this one is not! I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THEM!

To use one of Danielle's favorite words, the house turned out "stunning".

Thanks again, Vivd is the best!”

“We have had the pleasure of working with Danielle and her team on a couple projects this year! They are very knowledgeable, courteous, prompt, and a pleasure to work with! We look forward to working with them on future projects!” - Jarrod Smart Construction

“Vivid did a beautiful job on my home. The designers were knowledgable, friendly, efficient, and they supported me through the design process. I couldn't be happier with the results and I have gotten tons of compliments! I have passed their name on to friends for design projects. Love their store too. I highly recommend!”

“Really enjoyed working with Vivid Interiors. If you have not been to their storefront yet, you must! Such beautiful pieces of furniture and accessories. I worked with Megan at Vivid and was excited to spruce up some of my rooms that needed a little attention. Although I was looking forward to new ideas, I was also a little nervous because I have very young kids that have a tendency to get into trouble by jumping on and even coloring on furniture. Megan was wonderful to work with and we were able to add a polished finished look to the rooms and remain kid friendly! It is worth a home consultation!”

“I worked with Vivid on fine tuning and "editing" my furniture and accessories in my kitchen/dining and main living room area. Megan was professional, direct and efficient. As a full time working mom, my biggest challenge is time and I appreciated her candor and speed. Megan stayed within the budget that I allotted her and made a large impact for a small amount of money. I would definitely recommend Vivid for projects large and small!”

“I hired Danielle Loven as the interior designer on a remodeling project for my home last January. Working with Ms. Loven was absolute joy. On many occasions she acted as a liaison between myself and my general contractor, and represented my interests as though she were me. I found her to possess an incredible amount of knowledge about every trade we encountered which really gave me a great advantage when choosing between materials and comparing different options concerning my project. Along with being approachable and pleasant to work with, Ms. Loven was very professional and able to successfully navigate her way through any and all problems that came up during my project. My project is now complete, and my home is beautiful and the envy of all my neighbors. Mr. Loven possesses a talent for design that is second to none, and I would recommend her to anyone.”

“Danielle Loven and Katie do an absolutely fantastic job. They are extremely professional, customer focused, responsive and always have their clients best interest in mind. I'm not sure I've ever had a better experience with any contractor I've ever hired.”

“Danielle and her team were truly amazing to work with. We were remodeling our home and knew we had to call Vivid Interior Design. We had worked with Danielle in the past and loved her designs and how she was able to pin point our style and help us incorporate it into our home. Her staff is so professional and they were all a delight to work with. They thought of every detail and made sure start to finish everything went off with out a hitch. I highly recommend using Vivid Design.”

“I want to thank you for the extraordinary job you did on the complete remodel of our kitchen, dining room, hearth room, entry and living room. The results are breathtaking to say the least!

Given some of the structural issues that had to be tackled, there were very few people who even wanted to consider this project. Your ‘stick-to-it-ness,’ your digging, and your questioning the 22 subcontractors that were required for this project enabled us to receive incredible results with very little downtime. Plus, we appreciate your ability to obtain the best, fair price for us with your negotiating skills.

I also want to tell you how much I appreciate your alacrity in getting back to us whenever we had a question. You epitomize the phrase ‘no sooner said than done.”

“I have had the opportunity to work with Danielle and the Vivid team at two different houses over the past 6 years both times from a distance. Her team works well with builders, architects and they communicated their ideas well to us. They are efficient and have extensive knowledge in the design industry that spans well beyond decor and were very helpful with our remodel from the ground up. She stands behind the products she sells and addresses issues (that arise in any major project) in a straightforward, prompt, and honest manor. I hope to get to utilize their services again!”

“Vivid Interiors does an excellent job at managing design, projects and deliverables. They are a pleasure to work with and their entire team exudes passion, creativity and teamwork. We have never been disappointed on a project with Vivid and we look forward to doing projects with them. We know that the end result will always be incredible and we trust them with the process. We love the pieces and textures that Vivid blends together and enjoy their dedication to finish any job well.” - Hendel Homes

“We have just recently completed building our house and Danielle and the Vivid team have made it a home for us to call our own. From the very beginning Danielle, Katie, and Greg have been in tune with our vision of what we wanted and did not want. They never tried to push anything we did not want. They offered ideas and suggestions that fit our lifestyle and personality. Every aspect of the furniture design and decor layout was carefully considered and thought out. Even now, after our home is finished, they continue to provide guidance and decorating ideas to help it all continue to come together. The Vivid Team really took our vision and have made it a reality! They have been amazing to work with and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the years to come!”

“We had the opportunity to work with Vivid Interior Design on a home featured in the Luxury Home Tour this past June. Their passion and collaborative, team approach was commendable, especially working within an extremely tight schedule. The entire team displays design creativity, attention to detail, and expertise in the design process. The elements they were able to incorporate to personalize the space for the homeowner was incredible and we look forward to future opportunities to work with them.” - Nor-Son,Inc.

“I would like to express my appreciation for your outstanding service. The journey from the architect’s table to the finished product has been exhausting, both physical and emotional. Had it not been for you this undertaking would have become nothing short of a nightmare. Your ability to comprehend my taste, guiding me while I made my decisions but never allowing me to go astray, is but one example of your extraordinary people skills. Our gratitude can never be completely expressed for the professional way you stepped in when we had to terminate our general contractor. The compassion that you showed us goes far beyond any job tittle that you may ever wear. That you not only fought my battles with the wonderful world of subcontractors, making sure no one took advantage of us. The discounts that were afforded us because of you are all testament to your knowledge and savvy in this industry. In short you are my biggest HERO!”
