Armina has been great to work with! She took the time upfront to understand my vision for each room and my design preferences. She has a deep knowledge of current trends and designs. She offers various options that meet my needs from a color, style and budget perspective. Armina has an array of resources at her fingertips, including custom and specialty furniture manufacturers, as well as mainstream brands. The contractors that she utilize have also been very professional and their work is high quality.
Armina is very patient and takes the necessary time to ensure things are done with excellence. Her passion for her work is contagious. She takes each project personally, as if, she is doing the work for her own home.

Armina walked into our house and helped us transform it into a home. She was professional and easy to work with. Armina went above and beyond what you would expect from an interior designer. We trust Armina at our home when we are traveling. In fact, she meets contractors at our house and when we were gone, she had the most fabulous window treatment installed. The window treatment was at least 20 feet long and was no easy task! She continued to work in our home while we were away and I completely trusted her to let herself and the trade people she was working with in. She worked with us to change the entire main level of our home into a warm and inviting place to walk into. Armina helped us to make our upstairs master bedroom into a sanctuary that greets us at the end of the day.
Armina is currently working with us to help my husband change our office into a men’s cigar room with a wine cellar. I have no doubt that it will be the “man cave” that he desires. I also teach yoga and we are in the process of changing a spare bedroom into my yoga/meditation retreat.
We have a home in Florida and Armina was able to work from Michigan with contractors in Florida to remove existing built-ins, paint and install new moldings and help us to choose a sectional, ottoman, lounge chair and beautiful rug to finish off the room.
Armina will be in my life and in my homes for the long run!

A friend recommended Armina after I expressed my dissatisfaction with the décor of my great room and how we rarely used it. She had done some work for my friend, and had nothing but high praise for Armina Interiors. I had never worked with an interior designer before so I felt a little trepidation, but after speaking with Armina I was immediately at ease. I began to share with her my desire to have a welcoming room where my family could turn on the fireplace and cozy up with a movie. Armina listened to all my needs and helped me to understand my style. She brought samples to the house and made the process so easy. I loved everything she picked! Because Armina has so many design resources, she was able to customize a couch that allowed enough room for the whole family. Who knew that was possible?! Armina has designed other rooms in my home with the same amazing results and we look forward to someday working on our vacation home to give it a much needed update.

This was the second major project with which Armina helped me. My experience was the same for both. She came in, “consulted” with me to determine my vision and then as usual, rolled with it. She came back, with detailed task lists, and as I requested, did all the shopping to determine what colors, materials, styles, etc. that I liked, checking with me periodically along the way. Within the quoted time frame, my rooms went from 1999 to 2015 , all the way down to the accessories. They looked phenomenenal! Excellent experience!! I have since referred several friends to Armina, all of whom have been equally ecstatic. I will most definitely use her again in the future.

This was my first experience working with an interior designer. Armina was an excellent choice for me and was a pleasure to work with. Her style was relaxed and she grasped my style very quickly. I appreciated her guidance an input regarding the various areas of our home remodel project. She proposed ideas I would not have thought of on my own and they have turned out beautifully.

To date we have worked with Armina for a series of projects. We totally remodeled our powder room and my office. Our new bedroom furniture was purchased through Armina as well. We are very happy with how she guides us through material choices, and works with contractors on our projects. Armina is unique in her creativity, and able to quickly grasp our interests. We have many more projects planned for this coming year. I believe Armina will be our chosen designer for all of them.

I moved into my new house — my last new house for awhile — and decided instead of trying to make my ‘old stuff fit’ into a new space, I would look for the ‘right items’ to fit in my new space. Armina embraced the project, room by room, and did all the ‘heavy lifting’ (in some cases, literally!). She did all the research and spent a lot of time and energy to propose various options at all budget levels, based on our conversations. She knew the right questions to ask and how to balance what I wanted with what was ‘right’ for the spaces. We were able to make the right decisions easily and confidently.
Specifically, Armina proposed design, layout, furniture and window treatments for our great room/family room, sitting room, dining room, home office, kitchen, master bedroom and basement. Each room now reflects my family’s personality and has become a true ‘home’ with Armina’s design input.
She also helped us save time (which equals money) and energy — we didn’t have to comparison-shop.”

Armina has surpassed our expectations! She has worked with us from the start of construction and has brought to life our dream home. She knows exactly how to blend my husband’s traditional taste with my contemporary preferences and how to make us both happy. We’ve worked with designers in the past, but Armina is the first we’ve trusted, and she makes stressful projects fun. We look forward to continuing to work with Armina until our house is complete.”

I was so happy with all the assistance I received for the new design of my kitchen, living room and dining room. Armina helped me focus by narrowing down my choices. She personally took me to various tile and granite shops and design centers to guide me in bringing all the rooms together. She never forced her choices on me, but simply provided guidance and help with decisions. And she was right! From cabinets, floors and tile work to furniture, paint, lighting and window treatments, my home is so beautiful now. I am very satisfied and highly recommend and trust AK Design and Accents.”

Armina transformed our master bedroom from a blank white room with little architectural design into a tranquil retreat with built-ins, soft silk and divine velvets. It is truly the jewel box of my house! I love to just sit and relax there with a hot cup of tea and a good book.”
