Sally worked with me to stage my home in Boxford, MA for sale, and she worked quickly and efficiently to transform my cluttered family home into a more serene, orderly and beautiful space. Using my own furnishings and decorations, she streamlined surfaces and artfully arranged items to reveal and highlight the home's good features. I would hire her to stage or rearrange any home, whether for sale or not!
Sally also consulted with me on many facets of the design and execution of upgrades to kitchen, bath and living spaces in my new home in coastal New Hampshire. Her trained artist eye knows color and dimension to an exquisite degree. She was very easy to work with, taking cues from me as a client as to how much to change, and what designs elements could be left alone according to my taste. Sally is tactful, though honest and forthright, and keeps expenses in mind for clients on a budget. I would highly recommend Sally for all design and consultation engagements.

Sally helped me completely redo my dining room. She created beautiful drawings and a storyboard that helped me understand and get a feel for her vision. We worked together to fine tune it, and really make it mine. She helped me find the perfect area rug and we built the colors of the room from there. When I found a vase I fell in love with, Sally was able to incorporate it into the design without missing a beat. She found the perfect hardware for the curtain rods that went with the theme of the room. She even showed me how to save money, and recover my own chairs! Sally has a great eye for detail, she really thought of everything! It’s fabulous!

Sally has advised me on my home for many years. She has a high sense of color and design. Her work is sophisticated but also can have a lighthearted quality to it. Mostly, she will listen to what you want and help you achieve a home that suits your taste as well as your budget.

After living with our original 1940’s Cape Cod style kitchen for 27 years, my husband and I realized it was time for an update. We had been living with a poorly laid out kitchen, with no drawers and minimal lighting, until Sally Sotnek Interior Design consulted with us and respectfully pointed out these flaws. Ultimately with all the collaboration, choices and decisions, the finished update is a gorgeous yet sensible new kitchen that looks like it belongs in our home but with pizazz. Sally, with her functional design expertise, artistic style and color sense considered everything from the architecture in our home to our personalities and tastes. Sally was especially helpful in the planning process, guiding us and introducing us to websites and to industry vendors for everything from cabinets, to soapstone, lighting, appliances and backsplash. Sally also used her technical design skills to create 3D drawings so that we could see what she was envisioning. Blending her artistic flair with designing a practical, functional space, Sally created a kitchen that we absolutely love and live in. A kitchen is so much more than cabinets and counters and with her genuinely warm and friendly demeanor, Sally was wonderful to work with through it all.
