CREATING BEAUTIFUL DESIGN TOGETHER
What some of my clients are saying about working with me...
Pat & Evan Aptaker, Montecito CA.
Not every designer has creative talent along with the ability to handle all the details of a major project. Connie Glazer is able to do both, and at the same time remain composed and professional. We hired Connie because of the way she responded to the style of our house in Santa Barbara. The style of our custom designed home by architect, Jeff Shelton, defies categorization and has often been described by reviewers as reminiscent of Gaudi “with a twist.” Connie understood from the outset that the interior design had to respect this unique architecture. We are so happy with what she did in the Great Room, which has a 16’ coffered, wood ceiling. Connie avoided the trendy and the predictable by doing custom designed upholstered pieces in profiles that lean from formal to whimsical. She paid attention to details and oversaw the construction of custom made pieces such as the oversized sofa and ten dining chairs, even inspecting each piece before the upholstering was done. For this project, she was pulled hundreds of fabric samples at LA design houses, got our approvals, had custom cushions and pillows made— and delivered as promised. Connie is also flexible. When my husband and I saw a ready-made breakfast table table we liked, Connie had a local finisher enrich the finish to give it the right character. Connie measures everything twice. She got the scale of the custom dining room table exactly right. A friend of mine with a larger budget than ours told me her designer delivered chairs that were too short for their new dining table! That would never happen with Connie. She was also meticulous in managing estimates and budgets. She found ways to customize ready made linen drapes for a less important room to keep us within budget. I highly recommend Connie Glazer.

It has been such a pleasure working with Connie! Her incredible work ethic was apparent from the start; she's always calm, professional and kind in any situation - and yet she's still a strong advocate for her client. Connie made it a point to understand my needs and that's another reason she stands out from others in her profession - she could see I wanted a change and helped nudge me in a direction that incorporated a new, fresh look to my home that I absolutely love!
She has a great sense of style and space, but really gets the practicality of a family home. I will continue to call on Connie for any of my design needs and would give her our highest recommendation.
Linda Lockner, Santa Barbara CA
Connie Glazer has been my designer for three of my homes and is the only designer I will ever consult again. Her level of knowledge, resources, skill and overall abilities were beyond what I expected when we started the first time I worked with her. Connie has an ability to see the potential that I would have never seen as well as the ability to read the client and work with the general contractor. She kept the project moving forward and was always available to solve the myriad of issues that arise during construction. I also found Connie to be professional, easy to get along with, extremely knowledgeable and honest.
Ron & Beth Cooper, Montectio CA
We loved working with Connie to update and outfit our condo. Since it was a second home for us we needed everything. Connie evaluated our home and brought it up to date with new flooring, paint, window treatments and redesigned the way space was used to better fit us. She then outfitted it with a beautiful combination of new, old, and custom pieces so it is our home, not a showroom. Connie has extensive experience with suppliers and workmen so she was able to guide us toward what would work best for us. I am not as tall as my husband, and much upholstered furniture is too big for me. Connie's knowledge of suppliers' pieces provided us with the most comfortable sofa we have ever owned. She was also great with the practical stuff like solar shades for the sunny side and towel racks where you need them. And the most unbelievable thing was how fast Connie got it all done - much faster than I thought possible in "normal" (non pandemic) times. I really enjoyed working with Connie, and hope to again soon - the kitchen has some odd things going on that I am sure she can fix!
Vincent Esposito, Santa Barbara CA
Connie is a professional through and through. I hired her to help us through a renovation, select furnishings and artwork for our home. Her expertise and contacts in the design and art world made completing our home a pleasure. She worked with us during and after a major repair to our home, which was a very stressful project. During construction, we often relied on her expertise to make important decisions. Her support during this stressful time was incredible and very reassuring - she always had good practical advice.
Marjorie Goodrich, Goleta CA
I had been thinking about painting for some time. I wanted to refresh and make my home more cohesive, but never could make a final decision on colors. I had been in my home for over 18 years. Also, needed ideas on how to arrange some of the furniture in new and interesting ways. I appreciated her keeping me grounded and discouraged me from overdoing it. She selected lovely colors, of which I really liked and approved. I selected the painters, and she checked on the work to be sure I got a good job. She is so experienced with workers and really stepped in to help when I did not know what to do. Everyone is very impressed with the harmony and cohesiveness of my home. It turned out beautifully. "What lovely colors" is the remark of everyone who comes to see the results. I am more than pleased with the results and beauty of my home. She encouraged me to have the textured ceiling removed and found it really makes the rooms look so much larger. She was wonderful in helping hang artwork and the better placement of furniture. My home is no longer cluttered, but looks more organized. I could not have done this project without her. She is highly talented, knowledgeable, and experienced in her field and worth every penny of her fee. We achieved my highest expectations.
