“If you are looking for a designer that will help you realize a dream of what a home (or any space or event, for that matter) could become, then we absolutely recommend you use Rob Esterley. Rob is creating spaces that truly reflect his clients’ circumstances, past, and even perhaps aspirations. He makes spaces that reflect a journey that has been taken through life. He wants his clients’ homes to reflect what they are as people, and not what he wants as a designer…. all combined with a delightful personality that allows one to treat him as a friend.”
