Working with Anne and Placelift is the most fun ever. She is creative beyond belief, and understands what makes you comfortable in your own space. I learned so much working with her, and felt like I was cultivating my own sensibilities and creativity, being guided by a best friend. Working with Anne left me with a home my family loves and relaxes into, and my friends continually admire. She's extremely gifted at figuring out people quickly, and interested in how they want to live. She does everything with style and understanding, and she makes it a delightful experience.

Anne Furey has been our home decorator for more than 10 years now. We have loved doing every project with Anne, and each time, the results are more than we could ever have imagined. She has created an entire new office/library for us from stud walls, and it is our absolute favorite room in the house, full of rich fabrics, lamps, carpets, custom built ins, and a partners’ desk that created exactly the look and feel my husband and I dreamed about. Recently, she did my 12 year old son's room over, with his input. His friends think his small room is the "coolest" space around. She created a yoga studio out of dining room, and a warm boutique hotel-like space out of our previously cold and boring living room. 

Anne has redecorated practically every other room in our home with things we already owned, using her “one day use what you have” approach when we weren't ready to redo things completely. 

Not only is her taste impeccable and wonderful, she allows the best of her client's tastes to come through as well --creating the best outcome possible. She is smart, resourceful, and sees the beauty in various styles and time periods. Beyond the creative input and style which Anne is full of, she is so fun and easy to work with. She accepts all input, she is patient and respectful. Rather than impose her taste on her client, she listens to what they like, and helps them achieve their own nirvana! And when I, as the client, have been unhappy with any result, which has only happened one time in over 10 years, she makes amends, does it right and accepts total responsibility. This is beyond rare in any industry. To work with Anne is pure pleasure, and the result is a room, house, project that is the best of both worlds… your own personal tastes and the help of a visionary designer who knows how to create spaces her clients will love for a long time to come.

We brought Anne in to stage our house before putting it on the market.  Based on her advice, we removed wallpaper, painted walls, removed some furniture and updated lighting.  Additionally, Anne purchased art, home decor items and linens to liven up the rooms.  After seeing the results, our realtor actually increased the asking price for the house and we then sold the house within one week of our open house…for more than our original price.  When I asked the buyer what attracted him to the house, he told me that after two years of house hunting, this was the first place he saw where he immediately felt at home.  I am totally convinced that Anne's staging and our relatively small investment resulted in a 5-10% increase in the selling price of the house…and a faster sale than I ever imagined.

Anne Furey is a consummate professional with a keen eye for design and detail. She makes the whole remodeling process easy, fun and exciting. And the end result is one that will garner a multitude of compliments from all who visit your home.

Anne was faced with a Mars/Venus challenge of merging the quite divergent tastes of my husband and me, and she tackled it with aplomb. Instead of ending with a compromise that pleased neither, we were both amazed at how the end product fits both of our tastes perfectly!

I wholeheartedly recommend Placelift/Anne Furey Interiors to anyone in need of decorating assistance, regardless of the size of project. From small to large make-overs, there is no one better to evaluate your needs and provide you with a living space of which to be proud. You can take that to the bank!

A. Sweeney – Foxborough, MA

When we moved to Rhode Island 2 ½ years ago and bought a large 15-year-old house on Providence’s East Side, we were overwhelmed. Very few of our possessions seemed to fit into the new space. We would have to decorate and furnish virtually the entire house.

Anne Furey was more than equal to the task! She has a knack of finding interesting and unique pieces. The wall colors, the furniture, the accessories fit so well with our taste, our lifestyle and even the “feel” of the house itself.

She is a pleasure to work with, friendly and easy–going on a personal level but very careful and exacting in her work. Any pieces that were less than perfect were returned. Her keen eye noticed that the painter chose the wrong paint for the front hall, causing the color to be slightly “off” and insisted that the job be redone properly. And most importantly, she is fair, honest, professional, and respectful of her clients’ tastes and schedules.

I look forward to continuing to work with her!

Anne helped me recreate my cape house using both existing furniture and new items she helped purchase. Anne is great with color. She choose all the wall colors to reflect the colors in the water of the bay which is visible out the window. It never fails that someone walks in the house and compliments me on the colors of the walls.  I thank Anne for bringing fun and whimsy into my cape house through her decorating touch! 

L. Anderson – Brewster, Ma

We love our family room! Thank you for helping us create a warm but functional space. You were able to stay within our budget and utilize many pieces of furniture that we already owned. We especially appreciated the time and patience you spent listening to what we were hoping to achieve. Your creative ideas were ones that we would never have thought of on our own but really made the room special.

We join a chorus of clients in thanking you for all you have done to help us achieve our vision for our home.

P. Callahan – Medfield, Ma and Elkridge, Md

We cannot thank you enough for helping us find our look! When we started this process we could not have imagined the outcome, a home that is truly us -- warm, comfortable, stylish and fun. Your vision and encouragement to try something new aided us tremendously. We love it -- and all within our budget!

"When I began my interior renovation, I knew what I wanted but didn't know how to achieve it. That's when I decided I needed to work with a professional.  Anne Furey from Placelift helped me establish my style, then she gave me options.  Her strong knowledge of resources saved time and gave us the rooms we love to be in. I'm finally proud to entertain in my beautiful home."

F. Buck – Mansfield, Ma

I am thrilled with the work Anne has done in our home.  She updated our two bathrooms, living room, family room, front hall, and the kitchen eating area.  She was always very upbeat and knowledgeable and her work reflects this.  She even managed a shopping excursion with me to find accessories for our family room.  Anne used a lot of our own "treasures" rather than purchasing new items to try to keep within our budget, for which I was very grateful! Anne has made me very happy in our refreshed home.

“Not only do I absolutely love my ‘new’ family room, I feel as though I received a real education. After Anne left, I stayed up until 2 am applying the principles she taught me to my living room! What a great experience and service…well worth the investment.”

Suzie K. – Mansfield, Ma

“I can’t believe this is the same room. It absolutely feels more comfortable and looks more beautiful than I imagined. What you did with our wall to wall bookshelves was amazing…except for the fact that the “theology section” seems to be missing…(who knew we even had one under all those piles?!), my husband and I couldn’t be happier! For a person who hates decorating, I had a blast. We’re still chuckling about the ottoman…”

S. Long – Norwell, Ma

Dear Anne: 
I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I've enjoyed working with you!  The guidance you've given us has been invaluable and we really appreciate the care and personalized attention you took with each and every piece you brought into our home.  Even though we presented you with pretty much a blank slate, you took the time to get to know us and our lifestyle before making any decisions about what would work best in our space.  That made all the difference - each item is exactly what we would have chosen (if we had your wonderful eye and expertise!) and it truly feels like "ours".  Working with you (and your sister!) was a lot of fun and I look forward to our next project together!
