• My living room looked like something from the 1970’s, which included some reminders I no longer wanted to see since it did not fit my personality. I met Yvonne through a mutual girlfriend and I made a statement about “life changes” were required in my home. We had a short discussion at that moment and made plans to meet. Yvonne drove to Palmdale (driving to this area is a huge deal) and we discussed my desires and vision. In addition, my budget was limited and Yvonne was very understanding she stated; “Your desire for change was most important.” Within a month, Yvonne found a sofa, chair, tables, decorative items and other necessities to redesign my living room. She was diligent to obtain my vision and understanding my budget. I was so happy, my spirit was instantly lifted. Each day, I pass my living room with a huge smile because it is completely revamped. The space Is beautiful and it most definitely fit my budget. Thank you Yvonne for your beautiful caring spirit. You were an absolute joy to spend time with during this journey!

  • My house feels like a complete home now. Before Yvonne's help my house was just a collection of meaningful things that either didn't have a place, were hidden, or in the wrong space. After Yvonne's help of adding a few decor items to what I already owned...it was an instant facelift and now I'm constantly reminded of all the places I've traveled and my great memories when I step into my home.

  • I want to say to Yvonne from ‘Diamond in the Rough’ a huge thank you for creating my dream house, for making it affordable, so much better AND way beyond what I could ever imagine! Every single person who walks through the door is blown away by how incredibly gorgeous the place looks. Yvonne did everything. She designed my wine bar, selected all kitchen appliances, the most amazing granite counter, bathroom tiles, all paint options throughout the house, and everything from recessed lighting to cabinet/doorknobs to window coverings. All to my taste! Coordinating styles/colors, selected furniture and the finished product could be in a magazine!

  • Yvonne helped me and my husband select indoor and outdoor paint colors, flooring, lighting, fixtures and finishes for our old house in order to put it on the market, and also helped us stage it. We sold it in one week for over asking price. Then we bought a house that had not been built yet. Yvonne came with us to the design center and helped us pick out paint, countertops, backsplash, fixtures, lighting and flooring. She could answer every question about everything, such as why this flooring was better than that flooring. The people in the design center said that it usually takes about 8 hours for people to pick out everything for their new house, and because of Yvonne's knowledge about all the products and her sharp eye for color combinations, we got it done in three hours. Our new house looks amazing, because of the great job Yvonne did. I highly recommend her.

  • It has been twenty plus years since Yvonne began decorating our home at Christmas time. She made all the garlands, wreaths and some of the decorations custom for our home in Newhall and when we moved to our home in Valencia she made new items to go with our current color scheme.
