Once again would like to thank you for all your help in finding the perfect settee for us. While we were overwhelmed with the Design Center itself, and almost walked out, you were able to listen carefully to what we wanted and navigate the maze of stores and bring us to the shop that carried just what we wanted. You respected our price concerns and guided us through the process of customizing the settee, keeping price in mind as we selected fabric and wood stain. This was our first time working with an Interior Designer and we were impressed with your knowledge and desire to find just the right piece to meet our specific space limitations.
Thanks for your assistance.Jeffrey Kalla, Client
Rose Ann Humphrey of Home Life changed my home, changed my life. I have built/remodeled several homes over my lifetime. I always came at the project as “how do I impress friends and neighbors and business associates.” In other words I was creating an environment for others. Rose Ann showed me that I am at my home more than anyone and that it should reflect me as a person. I should “Love How I Live” in my environment. Not only is the interior amazing but the landscaping is so welcoming. She knows and promotes coordination with the whole team – architect, builder, landscaper ………AND SHE LISTENS NOT JUST HEARS. I highly recommend Rose Ann Humphrey and Home Life.Harry Witt, New Seabury, MA and Naples, FL
I was fortunate enough to work with Rose Ann when we bought our house. Rose Ann was incredibly responsive; she replies almost immediately to emails, phone calls, and texts. She is truly an artist and I trusted her taste completely. She got to know my family and created spaces that are not only lovely to look at, but also comfortable to live in. She seemed to instinctually understand the vague vision that I had and transfer it into something concrete and lovely. I learned so much from working with her and I could not be more delighted living in my spaces. I have received many compliments on my home and have continued to go back to Rose Ann whenever I need anything else. Rose Ann truly cultivates a relationship with her clients that is permanent and rich. I am so grateful to work with Rose Ann!Nicole Colson, Client
Our single family South End townhouse was built in 1867. We were only the third owner of the house when we acquired and restored it 45 years ago. Now my daughter and her family live there, and our old restoration was in desperate need of refreshing. The double parlors presented a particular challenge. All details remained original, including 17 foot ceilings, elaborate ball and dart crown molding, center medallions, and walnut doors and windows encased in walnut frames. Over the years, the parlors had become drab and dated, and the true majesty of the dimensions and detail of the rooms had become lost. But how do we revitalize these grand rooms to make them truly splendid? We all agreed that we needed a highly skilled design expert to help us. Rose Ann Humphrey and her design firm, Home Life, immediately saw the potential, and she helped my daughter and son-in-law bring these rooms back to life with a radiance and grace I never thought possible. Rose Ann chose off whites for the ceilings and walls and a neutral tone for the carpet, and then created a colorful palette of fabrics for the original parlor furniture, all of which had the dramatic effect of maximizing the natural light, highlighting the wood, marble and ceiling detail and emphasizing the beautiful proportions of the original design. A more perfect outcome could not have been imagined. Achieving the goal for my family to “Love How You Live” was a wonderful experience for all of us. Thank you Rose Ann!Guilliaem Aertsen, South End Boston, MA
It was great to see the slow evolution of the room as it turned into something that I had seen, but wasn’t able to do.Deana Hailey, Stowe, VT
One of the best things about Rose Ann is that she caters to the individual that she is working with.June Day, Dorset, VT
Your talent and ability in conceptualizing the design direction and overall intent of the property’s ownership while working closely with our architect has produced an outstanding and commendable result.
It should also be noted that your years of construction experience and knowledge of materials for specific uses, together with your ability to coordinate the various facets of your work with those of other trades and disciplines, has definitely played a great part in your work performance. Thank you for giving your all to this project.Franklin W. Simon, President of The Simon Company
Rose Ann is exceptionally creative. Let her perform her magic. She hears you and she listens well.Marvin Gameroff, Stowe, VT
She was not building her space, but my space. She was reflecting my vision.June Day, Client
She uses this amazing process when painting. She selects three shades of the same color and the darker areas are painted with lighter shades. The outcome is wonderful.Carolyn Kruse, Bonita Springs, FL
I know that you realize how much I love both my homes, Cape Cod and Naples, Florida, that you both designed and completed. And of course you also did the exteriors of both. Although you are not a landscape architect (by profession) you well know the joy and relaxation the Cape garden (which we refer to as the Zen Garden) brings me and how you have received so many compliments on its beauty. These two experiences have brought me a real change in my values. Your slogan “love how you live” has come to life in me.Harry Witt, Cape Cod and Naples, FL
I was open to getting educated and seeing my dream evolve and improve. I had ideas, but Rose Ann took them somewhere.Carolyn Kruse, Richmond, Vermont
Rose Ann was confident, very self assured. She said ‘I know how to do this.’ Her confidence made me confident.June Day, Vermont
Without Rose Ann’s expertise, I might have had houses but not homes. Even here in Florida, my neighbors marvel at what my home is like — much thanks to Home Life! I have complete trust in the company and have bought many things sight unseen. That is how good they are! The eye for what would work for your living space is amazing and I have been thrilled with my working relationship as well as the results for how I now live!Harry Witt, New Seabury, Cape Cod, and Naples, FL
Rose Ann has not only given me beautiful home and office spaces, living and working in her creations has been delightfully transformative. I am inspired, at home, and my guests and clients tell me every time I see them how much they love visiting. I implicitly trust her sense of style and her extraordinary ability to design spaces that are perfect for me in every way. She gives me the freedom to express the feeling of what I am after, and, then, Voila! The next thing I know, I am walking into the magic. I can’t wait to work with her again.Carolyn Kruse, Bonita Springs, FL
She doesn’t try to impose her sense of style on me, but helps to articulate my own style.June Day, Vermont
We had incurred water damage throughout several areas of our home in Shelburne, Vermont. Rose Ann spearheaded the project which included a total renovation of our kitchen and dining area. The craftsmen she retained did an excellent job and the project came in on time. Her selection of tiles, faux painting of the cabinets, floor and wall coverings, countertops and appliances all came together to make a stunning and very usable kitchen overlooking Lake Champlain. We have recently retained Rose Ann to renovate our master bathroom.Adrea and Charlie Kofman, Vermont
Rose Ann understood what I wanted. I had a vision for what I wanted and we had similar ideas about how to make it happen…we spoke the same language.Carolyn Kruse, Richmond, Vermont
