What Clients say about GEM

“Over the years, I have repeatedly selected Abigail Manning of GEM for interior design and window treatments, for new construction and remodeling of my 10,000 square foot primary residence and my six diverse vacation homes.  She has proven to be an invaluable resource of excellent design, understanding my family’s needs, thinking outside the box and making the often stressful process an enjoyable and exciting one.  I have complete trust and confidence in her ability and her company.  Abigail is a true gem!”   — Ruth Swallers

“Abigail literally furnished and decorated my 2,400 square foot home in two days — and all within budget! Her efficiency and ability to pull items from different store locations that stayed within theme, still amazes me. Today I own a professionally designed home that is both comfortable and makes a statement. Not a friend, nor a neighbor, comes through that doesn’t comment on how absolutely beautiful my home is. Abigail was the first designer I have ever used and she made the experience fun, educational and successful. She is an extremely driven person and her clients benefit from her experience and enthusiasm.”    — Melissa Grunnah

“Working with Abigail was a very positive experience. She brought tons of ideas to the project. She always knew where to find materials to make the desired effect, without going over my budget. Abigail is fun, energetic and positive. Perhaps the aspect I appreciated the most about working with Abigail was that I ended up so pleased with the results and so sure it was right for me.”   — Peg Larson

“Abigail was a great asset in getting our home remodeled. Her suggestions were given in a positive way and she has a keen sense of seeing the whole picture. We would highly recommend her expertise in helping others with home improvements.”   — Lois and John Arndt

“When I listed my house, Abigail’s job was to make the interior more appealing to potential buyers. Without hesitation, Abigail turned my 3,500 square foot house, into a home. She has a remarkable eye for detail. My home suddenly became warm and inviting. She did that with all my existing furnishings, a most impressive feat. She’s a dedicated professional and can be trusted to take on any project, large or small, and turn it into a work of art.”   — Mary Sylves
