testimonials

"Beth Donner has a unique ability to listen and understand what an owner/developer needs from a design perspective. She and her firm allow the creative process to happen in a fluid and organic way. This environment makes the process of designing enjoyable with the talent, vision and the flexibility to get the job done. I have faith and trust in Beth Donner Design with the creative direction she chooses and the way she leads her team. We are on our second hotel project together with more to come. There are few people I trust fully and know I don't have to control or oversee this work, it is excellent and impeccable. "

I have strong opinions on design and I have been intimately involved in choosing the finishes and overall look. BDD has been able to deliver products and accessories that align with my vision, they enable my point of view to come through without pushing or clashing with their own ideas. The BDD team is familiar with event spaces and other build outs in this genre. Their expertise in how these things are done makes all the difference. They are team players and deliver a package that simplifies the process for the contractor to bid out. They are smart, quick, diligent and talented. I'm thrilled we selected Beth Donner Design."

"Beth Donner listens and gives you what you are looking for. If she feels like you are going in the wrong direction she'll steer you right. I trust her.

I've worked with other designers but Beth and her team get it. They work within budgets, both time and monetary. Her process is "I know what you like and what you'd like to see but how about this way?", and this way is always better than I could've imagined. We've worked on 4 or 5 spaces together. She is a good person, always available and gets the job done. She works well under pressure and doesn't back off when things get tough to complete an install. I highly recommend working with Beth Donner Design. "

"Beth Donner and her team are awesome! I first met and worked with Beth on the Fire Island Beach House project and witnessed her process and the way she collaborates and hears you. She brought in unique and cool ideas that no one else had. She also brought a broad range of capabilities and taste. I then hired her firm to design my own home. She has the patience of a saint. She learned what I like and educated me on how the process works, understood my taste and introduced me to things she knew I...More

She brought in unique and cool ideas that no one else had. She also brought a broad range of capabilities and taste. I then hired her firm to design my own home. She has the patience of a saint. She learned what I like and educated me on how the process works, understood my taste and introduced me to things she knew I would like but I had no idea I would like it. She came in with a different kind of wall for example, a blue planer wall, it was fantastic. She brought in mirrors and furniture that left the space open and vibrant the way I wanted. Beth never tried to convince me to like something; she always found something different. She is a wonderful person, nice, fun and great to work with. The entire team at BDD is responsive, very organized and made my life easier. They pitched in to help me, and went above and beyond. We are now working on a third project. I highly recommend Beth and her firm. "

"Beth is a wonderful person, she has extraordinary taste, lots of heart and she really cares about her design clients and partners. I had initially recommended another design firm for a project but once I saw her work, her abilities and legacy work, I loved it It was so elevated. We hit it off instantly. Once we started working together we bonded further. I then collaborated with Beth and BOD to design my new offices in Roslyn and we worked hand in hand.

"Beth Donner has designed three projects for us: two professional offices and our home. Although each design concept was distinct and different one from the other in function and feeling, Beth and her team saw our visions, understood our specific needs and respected the allocated budgets. 

She was able to make our work environments beautiful, user-friendly for our staff and comfortable for our clients. 

As for our home, she created an atmosphere that still makes us smile every day, and did so even during the work from home period that was necessitated by the pandemic.

In summary, BDD is simply the BEST and her team is professional, hardworking and friendly. It has been a pleasure to work with them. "

We were lucky enough to work with Beth for Phase One of yet another go around, only this time in our new home. Our lower level was recently completed and is a reflection of her talent, creativity, skill and passion. The space is traditional, transitional, modern and comfortable – all rolled into one. We were able to incorporate some of our original pieces of furniture (now considered vintage!) an work them into the design. Together with the new furniture, it made for a beautifully designed space. 

Through the years, Beth has become a good friend. Our style of working together works! I look forward to collaborating with Beth as we go forward with the next phase of designing our home.
