What people say about us!

 

Shauna Wills, Client, December 2018

Budget $100,000

Ari helped us complete the interior and exterior design on an entire home rebuild. She sourced and/ or chose all options for every aspect of our new home. Ari researched and provided direction on everything from the exterior siding on the home, garage doors, exterior/interior doors, interior/exterior light fixtures, cabinets, fixtures, tile…everything right down to the grout color- and it looks amazing! Everyone who visits our home asks for her contact information.

Additionally, her ability to create a budget and establish realistic timelines for each decision included in a major project such as ours helped us stay on track with our completion date while also managing to our overall project budget. I recommend Ari to everyone I meet and truly believe we could not have completed our whole house remodel on time and within budget without her help. We love you Ari!!

Jen Paige, Client, 2018

Budget $50,000

We hired Ariana for a consultation to assist with our kitchen remodel. She was very instrumental in giving us direction on where and how to begin our project and gave us great inspiration for our kitchen. I did reach out to her a few times throughout our project and she was always quick to respond and give her expert advice, which was greatly appreciated. Had we known our project was going to grow as big as it did, we would’ve loved for her to manage it from start to finish. Ariana is professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend her!

Ariana is without a doubt a leader in her field! Her designs, whether large or small scale are always amazing! She pays extra special attention to detail, and exactly what you are wanting! I was excited to finally be able to work with heron a project, she has consulted on paint selection, all the way to room design and space planning! She even does a detailed shopping list, for her smaller scaled clients. She is quick to communicate. All of her work is beautifully done! It’s an honor to have her on your project, I know I certainly look forward to working with her again!

Ariana is THE BEST! She took our input and gave us design suggestions that were spot on to our tastes. With our remodel, we needed someone to minimize the “choices.” She gave us a few amazing options, and we were able to easily pick colors, flooring, tile, etc. In turn, we saved countless hours of arguing and stress over the little details and are now able to enjoy our beautiful home. Everyone that comes in compliments the design and I always refer them to Honeycomb!

Robert May, Client, 2018

Budget: $100,000

Ariana has done multiple projects for my business and my family. One a re-model of my law practice and also a large home re-model. I have recommended her to family and other professionals because she has a great eye, she takes stress out of finding/hiring/organizing sub-contractors. And even after the project, I’ve been able to reach out to her to get supplemental ideas. Ariana works very very hard and puts in the time it takes to get the job done beautifully and correctly. Plus, she is a good person, which always makes what can be a stressful project much much better.

When we started this project, we were new to the area. In fact we hadn’t moved here yet (but owned a house that we previously rented out). We didn’t know local tradesman, artisans, contractors etc. We needed to finish off a butler’s pantry and a home office, as well as redo a powder room and paint throughout the house. In addition to being fun to work with, we found value in Ariana’s ability to manage a project with many different things going on in it. She essentially acted as the project manager before we even moved here. Her excellent communication skills reduced our stress in undertaking a project from afar- and reassured us by giving us a good understanding of the status of it all as it progressed. She is easy to work with and we are happy with the results!

We are truly so appreciative of Ariana’s talents and helpfulness every step of the way. She has an amazing design sense and an ability to work with her clients in such an understanding and thoughtful manner. We cannot thank her enough and we have never been this happy with a remodel before. THANK YOU ARI!

Client

We have lived in our Los Osos home for over 15 years and have always wanted to transform the living space into something much more functional which allowed us to maximize the use of our home. After remodeling bathrooms in 2015, our next project was the kitchen and adjoining living spaces. We knew this would be expensive and carefully considered several options to achieve a total transformation – adding new windows, replacing outdated appliances, installing a high-efficiency fume hood, vastly increasing storage, accomplish better flows between work spaces, and tie in color/texture preferences throughout.

It was our good fortune to have been introduced to Ariana Lovato of Honeycomb Home Design.

Ariana brought a total remodeling concept to our kitchen project. This was well worth the focus because there are so many details which define the living space and the homeowner’s happiness. Honeycomb Home Design was instrumental in redefining cabinet storage and maximizing storage in all locations of the kitchen. We opted for upper end appliances (Wolf, Sub-Zero, Bosch) and cabinetry to allow us to expand possibilities.

The greatest value brought to our project was Ariana’s attention to detail while maintaining clarity on the overall project vision and/or scope. This combined accents and colors/textures so as to have each item coordinate and compliment the other. Her role in working with subcontractors allowed unforeseen problems to be resolved quickly and economically, as well as helping with subcontractor selection. This included wood flooring, backsplash and field tiles, cabinet wood choice and hardware, electrical and lighting details, and selection of interior paint color.

Kitchen remodels are the most stressful within home improvement projects, but our relationship with Honeycomb Home Design delivered a project which was also within our budget range and produced overall excellent results. We wholeheartedly provide this recommendation to prospective customers of Honeycomb Home Design’s services.

David and Liz Elizalde

We recently decided to tackle a long overdue kitchen remodel at our house and had a basic design concept of what we wanted. We were not sure of our ideas and decided to seek professional help to get us started. Ariana was recommended to us by a friend in the construction business who had worked with Ariana on some previous projects. From the first phone call to Ariana we knew we had made the right choice. Ariana was very easy to work with and was very willing to listen to our ideas. Ariana designed our kitchen layout and provided us with detailed plans and a 3-D virtual type drawing so we could visual the completed project even before we started. We found this to be very helpful with our project. Every time we called Ariana for help, she was always there even taking time away from her weekends to meet with us on Saturdays. I would highly recommend Ariana and her expertise to anyone thinking of doing a remodel or new construction project.

Thank You Ariana for all your help. Our kitchen turned out “PERFECT”

Testimonial on Houzz

Working with Ariana was a true pleasure. She is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding of our wishes and likes. She was open to us giving our input, but was there when we had no clue on how we wanted to change certain areas. She was truly helpful in our remodel of our bathrooms, office, and fireplace.

Mark and JoLynn, Arroyo Grande

The best money spent was hiring Ari. Both JoLynn and I wanted to let you know how thoroughly pleased we are with the work you did in our home. The kitchen and bath remodel exceeded our expectations. Your input, patience and knowledge were truly invaluable.

Ariana was wonderful to work with. I love her enthusiasm and work ethic. She has a great sense of humor and is a delight to be around. Ariana is very honest, which I find refreshing. She is not afraid to speak her mind if she thinks something will not work well. She was also able to adjust to some of my unique ideas. If you are planning on using a designer for your home or work, I highly recommend Ariana Lovato. You will not be disappointed.

Honeycomb Home Design picked out furniture for my home and I couldn’t be more pleased. Ariana came out, took measurements, chose the most beautiful pieces for our home, and was incredibly professional. I couldn’t recommend her more highly!

Ariana continues to impress me with her bold and unexpected design selections. She has a talent of blending materials, colors and patterns in a natural yet refreshing way – creating unique spaces that are on point and timeless. A gifted designer who makes great design look easy!

Ariana helped us with our TV room that desperately needed new furniture and accessories. We do not enjoy shopping and the room has an odd set up, so we really needed expert help. Ariana had great ideas and was very professional and fun to work with. She made it so smooth and easy to find out new sectional and accessories. We are so happy with how it turned out and hope to work with her again as we update other areas of our home!

One of the best things about Ariana is that she listens to what YOU WANT! Combine that with efficient, on-budget, service-with-a-smile you have a winner. John and I both adored working with Ariana and will definitely use Honeycomb Home Design again.

As a Tile Contractor I have a lot of respect for Ariana. Her projects always look amazing and her clients are some of the happiest I work with! It makes my job a whole lot easier working with a true professional. Give her a call if you are thinking about remodeling, your remodel will go a lot smoother and look amazing!
