Belle Meade Comfort

Carrie and her team are amazing! My husband and I have worked with Carrie, Lance, and Julie on a big renovation / addition home project for the last few years. From big ideas such as architectural plans to the nitty gritty of paint colors and fabrics, they do it all, and they do it extremely well! They are communicative, responsive, and super creative. We highly recommend Carrie and her team to any of our friends embarking upon a new home build or extensive renovation!!

Classic Cabana

sketchbook team working on design

Carrie possesses an incredibly ability to see and champion what her clients like, and then to steadily encourage us to embrace our own style. Her confidence wears off on those around her and as her client you are the beneficiary. Our house is an absolutely gorgeous testament to her attention to detail, use of color, pattern mixing, and good old-fashioned sense of style, to name just a few. Everyone who walks through comments on how beautifully the colors flow from room to room. Lance’s expertise was also invaluable in finalizing our floor plans, and both he and Carrie always gave us thoughtful and honest feedback on what made the most sense. We have lived in our house for nearly a year and it is a daily visual treat! We are forever indebted to Carrie, Lance and team for making this house a home.

Carrie gets it right every time. We are always thrilled with the outcome -down to every tiny detail.

Chapel Hill Farmhouse

Carrie creates beautiful spaces; the experience of working with her was just as lovely. She is a perfect blend of creative and realistic about how a space will be used. She can get stunning results with any budget. She helped us with a full home renovation and worked harmoniously with the rest of the team (architect and builder). Carrie always did what she said she would do and anticipated what would need to happen two or three more steps down the line. We were never waiting on her to advance the ball. She added lovely moments throughout our home that took a custom build to the next level.

Green Hills Tradition

Carrie quickly understood what I was going for even when I couldn’t explain why I liked or didn’t like certain things. She steadily had ideas that make my home feel so “me” even though I never could have come up with them myself. That’s her magic. I always look forward to a chance to work with Carrie again when the budget opens up for another little detail here or there. Julie joined the team toward the end of our larger project and is a wonderful complement to Carrie. The two of them could not be kinder. I recommend the Simple Sketchbook team to anyone in the area who asks–and sometimes to people who don’t ask.
