"Ryan and Christie have been instrumental in transforming our house into our dream home. They have used their expertise to incorporate our style into design that truly reflects us. From finding the perfect pieces of art to loading up their car to test items that would look just right, they focus on making the process easy and enjoyable. We’ve been able to give them access to the house while we were away and came back to wallpaper installed and furniture delivered. The experience we’ve had with Miles and Kirk has been flawless and we look forward to many more projects with them."

"I can now say after hiring Miles and Kirk that it was the best decision we made. There is no way we could have made all of the decisions and make our house look as beautiful as it is without them. They literally selected all of our interior & exterior finishes. Furthermore, they respected our budget and the budget we allotted towards design and helped us to select everything within that budget. All we can say now is we love our house. We love the floors. We love the tile. We love the trim. We love the paint colors. We love everything they selected. Miles and Kirk are money well spent for any home owner."
