I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the spectacular job you did with the interior of our model unit. I must admit it was a pleasant surprise when I first saw the completed unit. As one who typically sees to every detail himself it was a leap of faith to turn the decorating and furnishing duties over to you. It was one of the best decisions I have made. The feedback we have been getting from potential buyers and agents has been overwhelmingly good. Everyone, hands down, has liked and complemented your work.

I look forward to working with you on the remaining units. I am sure our buyers will find you as creative, intuitive and easy to work with as I did. Thank you again! – Ed McBride, Director

“Beautifully designed and appointed small boutique resort Hotel on the south beach of Placencia village in Belize” – BBC Property in the sun 2005

“Placencia is a small village. On Wednesday nights, it seems like the entire town heads to the Sugar Reef Lounge for their karaoke night. On other nights of the week, this is also one of the better spots in town to hang out after the sun goes down.” – Frommer’s Belize

Hopkins Harbor

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with Hannah’s interior design of our new vacation/rental home at Robert’s Grove Marina in Placencia.

After a very frustrating attempt to find furnishings, granite, window treatments, light fixtures, etc. etc. on our own, we fortunately found Hannah who, without missing a beat, was able to salvage what we had begun and move ahead. With her expertise and experience she was able to incorporate our vision with her design abilities to create a warm, inviting, tropical home which fit our needs. Hannah worked with us to locate and provide our furnishings , many of which were locally made, for our home as well as the pool area where she designed a beautiful mosaic feature.

Hannah worked tirelessly with us and the builder to keep our project on track and on budget. She found beautiful, local artwork and sourced all the linens, dishes, kitchen utensils and finishing touches which made our home “move in ready”. We felt as if we were on a set of HGTV when we arrived for our first stay and everything was in place and ready for us to enjoy.

Hannah is not only very knowledgeable and professional but a truly lovely person we now consider a friend!

Awesome job Hannah on the completion of the Kitchen and Master Suite… It was a pleasure working with Platinum Design as a “one stop shop” to handle all aspects of the project, colors, murals, furnishings, design and vision.

The compliments we have received have all been outstanding… we look forward to working with you in the future.

Three Iguanas Villas

Many thanks for the interior design and decorating consultation you provided on the house that we are building in Belize.

You are brilliant…Your eye for line, colour, flow, unity and comfort is professional and polished; your knowledge of solutions for the unique constraints of Belize – weather, product selection source and supply is pragmatic; and your ability to meld local specialties with classic design makes the ordinary special and marvelous. I was particularly pleased with your ability to plan and design for multiple function s and users including families, snowbird vacationers and short-stay vacationers.
Your fee might be the best value for money that I’ve received on any expenditure – ever.

Every house builder and property developer in Belize should seek your advice on their project – property will look and function better and they will save money. Thank you and best wishes for success in all your endeavours.

Whenever I need something out of the ordinary or very exotic to finish off one of the parts I immediately contact Hannah and she has always not only completed the task but gone above and beyond even my already overactive imagination. Her research abilities to source unusual items cuts my work into one-tenth the time needed.

The single most amazing talent Hannah has (in my opinion) is her innate ability to almost immediately know the person and their tastes so each project she does becomes very personal to that person.
