Testimonials

Expertise

Absolute excellence! Nia provides the best of both worlds; she is an architect and a designer. This means that she can translate a design into a practical installation. The result was beyond our expectations. I strongly endorse Nia Collins and her services.

-Alan W.

Nia is very experienced. She has comprehensive knowledge of materials and is very creative in her options. She is a great listener and will work with your ideas and constraints rather than impose her view. Also, she has excellent project management skills and is very diligent about follow up. I recommend her highly. You will be in good hands.

-Mark S.

In a search for a new designer (our previous one retired), we came across Nia Collins through a referral from the Seattle Design Center. We have been very pleased with Nia’s eye for detail, understanding of our needs, response time and communication. Most recently, we needed to complete our living room in advance of a party we were having–we gave Nia very little time to work with. In short order, she had picked out and delivered chairs and accessories and reconfigured our layout – all with value in mind. Everything looked great and we received several compliments from party-goers.

Customer Service

Collins Group Design dedicates as much passion and professionalism to a small bathroom remodel as they do to a complete home makeover or new estate design. Nia Collins, owner, is an incredible listener – able to understand her client’s needs and desires and deliver a project that exceeds expectations.

-Shanna D.

This was our first experience with a professional design firm. Our expectations were exceeded. We often mentioned to one another that deciding to hire Nia allowed us to concentrate on selling our existing property.

-San Francisco, CA clients

There is no way we could have duplicated the results. We’re very happy with the elegant living spaces envisioned and guided by Nia’s expertise.

Bespoke and Custom Furnishings

Nia’s contacts supplied us with custom items, such as our dining area chandelier, that was less expensive and more personal than anything ready-made.

-Gualala, CA clients

Nia shaped our house into a unique space. Nia involved us in all decisions and kept her eye on the total effect of those decisions.

-Karen and Jim Shanower

Working Remotely

Nia had answers for the way we could work together long-distance. Nia’s assistant took notes on all our conversations over the phone and submitted a written record to us from the assistant’s notes. After Nia and the contractor had conferred on site, Nia’s assistant’s notes were appreciated by the contractor.
