  • "After years of moving all over as a military family we finally bought our "forever home" and we all wanted it to match us as a family. My husband kept suggesting that we hire a professional, and after a few failed Pinterest decorative attempts I finally took my husband's advice and I wish I would have listened to him sooner! The day Brit and Liz installed our project was the first time we felt like we were HOME. Not only did it completely match the magical vision I had held in my head forever and had thought was going to be impossible to achieve, but their design plan fit the needs of our lifestyle and solved a major storage issue in our house. Cannot wait to have Brit and Liz back to take over our basement! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!" - O'Shea Project, Completion 2013
  • "To put it plainly, Brit and Liz knocked it out of the park! They knew exactly what they were doing and pulled it off effortlessly. No one believes us when we tell them how much our project cost-- it appears at least triple the amount. Highly, highly recommend." -Fulton Project, Completion 2015
  • "We found The Better Half through a LivingSocial deal and took a chance. I immediately felt a real connection with Liz and was so relaxed and comfortable handing over control of the design of our master bedroom and bathroom. So glad we just happened to stubble upon that deal that day! Couldn't have done it without The Better Half and we cannot wait to work with Brit and Liz again in the future." -Falls Church Project, 2014
  • The eDesign Board Package that Brit and Liz made for me was the perfect guide to styling and accessorizing my living room. They knew just when to push me to try something new and when adding an additional option was the right choice. I needed assistance, but I knew I still wanted to get my hands dirty and put in the work. In comparison to the countless hours I would have spent shopping, stressing and searching online to attempt to style the space on my own, their package was an amazing value. These designers are wonderful and very talented." -Evelyn, eDesign, 2014
  • "I LOVED working with Liz and Brit so much that I referred them to my best friend and she is having so much fun on her project. Cannot wait to see the final product in a couple weeks when her project wraps up!  -Steph, Project, 2014
  • With the help of The Better Half we were able to stage my very tiny condo and make it appear twice the size. I enjoyed their honesty and knowledge when it came time to review which pieces of my furniture should go to storage and which should stay before taking photographs and putting it on the market. They were able to use all of my remaining furniture, and only brought in minimal decor and window treatments to keep the cost far under my very tight budget. In working with my Agent, they also helped me determine which updates were necessary to get the top dollar price I was after.They set me up with step-by-step instructions for the DIY improvements, and managed subcontractors for the larger updates they designed wonderfully. They truly brought out the best in my condo and successfully hid the flaws. Thanks to The Better Half and my Agent, within 2 weeks on the market we had a full-price offer and lots of compliments!" -NW DC Staging, 2015
  • As a single Dad, I needed all the help I could get when the twins wanted "a pretty pink princess room." I was worried that in 6 months the girls would outgrow the princess stage and the money would be down the drain. Brit and Liz made sure to incorporate a neutral background and decorative pieces that are easily swapped out from one little girl phase to the next. The girls love their new bedroom, and when the girls are happy, Dad is happy. Thanks again. -Urbana Project, 2013
