Let me say that Hera and Eduardo were a pleasure to work with. We decided on Hera and Eduardo because we knew how important chemistry and mutual respect were in designing a home. Hera was very quick to pick up on what we wanted to accomplish and steered us each step of the way. The design process was very smooth and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. We are now in the construction process and we can’t fathom not loving our new home.- Chad & Emily
Working with Hera and Eduardo has been like having family by our side. The house building process would have been so daunting without them guiding us every step of the way. Having someone knowledgeable to call about even the simplest matter is such a valuable asset, and one that we could not have done without. Especially when they care about the success of your project just as much as you do. We are still amazed at how much cost savings we are able to realize through the advice we have been given. There is no question that we made the right choice with Design Lab.- Stacy & Redel
Hera Psaros and Eduardo Hermida, the owners of Design Lab, provide a broad, deep and very artistic array of skills that helped transform my house into a true show place….and comfortable home.- Bonnie Anderson, St Croix, USVI
I bought a spectacular house on the North Shore of St. Croix, but it was very dated. And I wanted a chef’s kitchen. Walls were removed to make the home more symmetrical, more pleasing to the eye and to increase – by a huge measure – the view. The whole house flooring was retiled, electrical and plumbing was changed… glass doors and windows were installed… and I finally had the house and view of my dreams. I think it’s the best view on the island. From EVERY vantage point in the house…thanks to Design Lab.
My kitchen? Wow. Aside from the workable space (from a cooking point of view) I have a chef’s table of onyx, lit from below with fans to keep it cool. There are only a couple of high-end restaurants in the world with such a table. Hera designed it… and it is a show piece. Hera, who also has an exceptional sense of interior decorating, chose furniture and other items that make this house a home. She incorporated my antiques and my furnishings of a lifetime with newer items, and it works. Yes, there were two things she chose that I didn’t like…two out of dozens and dozens. I think that is fairly remarkable … After talking with me at length, giving me many options, she was right on 99 percent of what we did.
Design Lab also oversaw all of the construction and have followed up on any issue following construction, meeting with sub-contractors and here on site until the work has been done to their – and my – satisfaction. They don’t just take on a job and leave it… they are there for the client as long as it takes. I have lived on five continents, have traveled to over 160 countries, have owned homes in many places. But no home compares to the one that Design Lab helped me update and renovate. I could not recommend Design Lab more.
Hera & Eduardo spend a considerable amount of time understanding how a family lives and then take charge, blending our thoughts and style into the finished product in a very timely and timeless way. Eduardo will always come up with two or three different ways to solve a problem or enhance your project.- Theodora
Want to thank you very much for the guidance you gave us. We definitely were on the road to making big and costly mistakes and having you there giving us your professional input was a tremendous help and money saver in the long run.- David & Maria
Hera & Eduardo are a great team; true professionals and a pleasure to work with. Our entire project (from layouts and selections to installations and invoicing) was handled in a first-class manner. Their work is distinguished by exceptional style, design skills, attention to detail, and experience. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a beautiful home.- G Williams
Working with Hera was a wonderful experience. She knows how to listen to my ideas and develop them. She pays attention to the big picture as well as to every little detail. Her selections are comfortable and elegant. She calls or emails back with the answers to everything! I feel lucky that I have found a truly talented designer and someone I call a friend.- Celerie
