Testimonials

“Just like receiving a new customer through a client’s referral, receiving praise and positive feedback after a project is an absolute delight. My motivating objective is to make sure that after every project, my customers are satisfied, excited and living happily in the beautiful environment we created together. Here are letters sent to me by some of my many wonderful clients.”

After meeting with Selwyn, I felt confident that he would get the job done and he did.

 

“Selwyn was recommended to me soon after I bought my apartment in Ra’anana. The challenge was to complete the extensive renovations and decorating while I was out of the country. After meeting with Selwyn, I felt confident that he would get the job done and he did. When I returned to Israel the apartment was finished and looked beautiful. He is easy to work with, pays attention to client likes and dislikes, has extensive experience, is a very detailed person and a pleasure to work with. It has been several years since the work in my apartment was completed and I have contacted Selwyn a few times for assistance with various issues and he has always responded in a positive manner and worked to solve the problem. He is an asset to any project!”

I worked with Selwyn on two projects and it was a pleasure.

Not a day goes by when I think of how fortunate we were to have you as our interior designer.

“Dear Selwyn, not a day goes by when I think of how fortunate we were to have you as our interior designer. You have made our homes practical and so tasteful. When you designed our apartment and our new home you did it with us in mind… cupboard space for everything, a kitchen that works for me, easy-to-clean finishes and bathrooms that fitted in exactly what we needed.

My only wish is for us to move so that we can do it over and over again. I am sure there are not many people who leave somebody in charge of a project and return from overseas having their apartment completed to 100 percent satisfaction and can just walk in and unpack their clothes. Thank you Selwyn for all your hard work and your expertise. We really appreciate it, and wish you very many more beautiful successful projects.”

Selwyn achieved my dreams without projecting his stamp on the apartment.

“Having Selwyn as my interior designer was a delight. He achieved my dreams without projecting his stamp on the apartment and I was so pleased with the final outcome. Easy to talk to, easy to work with, having a sense of humor and such a good understanding of colors, I would recommend him highly to all my friends and in fact, have already done so.”

Selwyn very quickly understood our style, the feeling and personality of the home we were trying to create.

“Working with Selwyn to create our home in Israel was a seamless and pleasurable experience. Selwyn very quickly understood our style, the feeling and personality of the home we were trying to create and made it come to life. Selwyn treated me like a complete partner in the project, never imposing his ideas, but sharing and constantly steering me in the right direction helping me find the treasures of decor that I was looking for to complete our home and still utilizing the furniture and art we had already.

He managed the project, kept it moving, and was conscious that every installation go perfectly and timely. The process was enjoyable and now that we are finished we get daily enjoyment from our home.

What’s unique about Selwyn is that every home he creates is unique and reflects the homeowners. He does not have one particular style, he works with all styles and has a vision, shares his excitement with each individual project, and the completed products always come out tastefully executed.”

One of Selwyn's great talents is organizing spaces and areas to suit a family's needs

“Selwyn Elkin is an amazing architectural designer, decorator and friend.

We have been privileged to have him help us on three different projects in the past 10 years.

One of his great talents is organizing spaces and areas to suit the needs of a particular family. This means that he understands how to do things in an area to make it extremely comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing.

Selwyn helped set out our present apartment . We are an older couple and wanted to have certain living arrangements to suit our life style. We wanted a large dining area to entertain. Our office, laundry and bedroom space all on the same level. Our guest areas is on a separate level, so we can host our children and grandchildren when they come to visit. We need space for an extra fridge.

This all added up to quite a challenge and Selwyn listened carefully gave use very useful advice and was very innovative. At the same time he is extremely aware of our particular taste and likes, not ever imposing his will except when it was impractical.

Selwyn understands construction problems and in our particular case, managed to solve a very complicated air conditioning problem, which we were unaware of, so that it would no impinge on the aesthetic look of our home. We were totally unaware that it was a problem and he sorted it out to make it both good looking and practical.

Selwyn delivers on time and fulfills all that he sets out to do. He takes his brief very seriously and is willing to go to great lengths to help within the budget given. Selwyn arrives very punctually and is most professional. Nothing is too much and he very generous with his time and energy.

I am only sorry we have no new plans for the future. It was a great pleasure and privilege  to work  and spend time with him and we are so grateful for all his help.”
