Diana was OUTSTANDING in helping me get a bathroom remodel done quickly at my farm home before a big family reunion. I loved that she is so down to earth, practical, patient and really has the ability to work with and through the construction folks to get things done.. She communicates well and is very professional in all aspects of her service and design. The whole project was effortless for me, which is what I needed! Thank you Diana. You have great insight, great design ideas and great people skills. Thanks for getting the job done. Awesome finished bathroom at a great cost, too.
I had my pretty much my entire home redone by Zapata Design. Diana did a wonderful job. She listened to what we wanted and used her expertise to make everything affordable and practical while maintaining style. She also got some great people to work on the remodel. Focusing on the downstairs bathroom, here are a few highlights:
1. The frosted windows. (above) They make the bathroom bright where it was dank and dismal before, yet our privacy is maintained.
2. The new floor tile. It looks exactly like hardwood floor, which I absolutely adore, (heated, too!)
3. The waterfall faucets. I wanted them badly, and I'm so happy that I got them. And a bonus: Diana was able to find them for less money than I could.
4. Finally, she really opened things up. Before the remodel, the toilet was walled off, as was the shower/bathtub. This contributed to the dank, dismal feel that I mentioned and made the bathroom look really awkward. Now it's a much more welcoming space, with a soaking tub and curb-less shower.
Diana really brought out the potential that was always there in my home, and months later, I still have a "wow" moment every morning when I wake up and see how it's changed.

Diana is a color genius. We hired her to advise us on painting our oak kitchen cabinets after trying out several paint samples on our own. She listened, then asked us to give her a few minutes alone in our kitchen while she considered the other elements in the room: Granite countertops, wall color, hardwoods and overall light. When we came back she had found a creamy, warm color that's just the right beige. Our kitchen has been transformed. We Highly recommend Diana! She's professional, soft spoken, knowledgeable and a great listener.

Diana was recommended by a friend to help us remodel our downstairs bathroom to accommodate my 91 year old mother, who moved in with us this summer and who is wheelchair bound. Diana made many design recommendations, all of which have proven spot on. She put us in touch with and accompanied us on visits to various suppliers, helping us pick out everything from the bathroom vanity to grab bars. Perhaps her most valuable service was putting us in touch with a contractor and plumber who were willing to arrange their schedules to meet our need. From the time we engaged Diana until the project was done took about 6 weeks. Prior to contacting Diana, we couldn't find a contractor who could even start in less than 3 months. Diana is personable, professional and listens carefully. She remained very conscious of our budget throughout. We give Diana our highest recommendation.
