What Our Clients Say

Over the past seven years, Paula has been invaluable to us. During that time, we have built two homes, one locally and the other in North Carolina, and she has helped us through every stage of building, designing and furnishing the home. Her knowledge, creativity, and organizational skills have amazed everyone involved in the process. Even the builders, who expressed some concerns about “working with a designer”, later had nothing but good things to say about how easy she made it for everyone involved. I was concerned we couldn’t build another home that our family would enjoy as much as the first. Thanks to Paula, we now have two homes to love.

Helena, you achieved exactly what we challenged you to do, only better. We are incredibly proud of what you did for us.

As a high-end remodeler, I have worked with a number of interior designers over the years. What the good ones have in common is their ability to elevate the finishes from fine to one-of-a-kind. What distinguishes Del Mar Designs from this group is their willingness and ability to play on a team for the benefit of the client.

When we partner with Paula Lewis and her team, we know we will have accurate drawings, timely selections, and an accessible designer when a problem needs to be solved. Del Mar also partners with quality subcontractors that we are comfortable hiring on our projects.

“Finally, the finish. Del Mar’s exceptional taste and sound aesthetics yield projects that we can’t wait to photograph. We have enjoyed both national recognition and local awards for projects with which we have partnered with Del Mar Designs.”
— Jeff Brecko, Vice President, Aurora Custom Homes and Remodeling
Helena’s designs are the product of inclusive planning and the exchange of creative ideas, the talent of expert craftsmen, attention to detail and function.

When we wanted to build our dream home, Helena brought it beautifully to life. And when we were ready to downsize, she guided us through the redesign of our oceanfront condo, giving thought to and implementing features that enable us to remain there regardless of future needs.

All of the projects that we completed together, ranging from 2000-12,000 SF, remodeling and new construction, were approached with enthusiasm, professionalism, and timely project management.
We would gladly recommend her to anyone seeking the assistance of a well qualified and creative interior designer.

Paula Lewis and her team at Del Mar Designs worked with me to renovate a dental office untouched in 35 years. I wanted a clean, inviting tropical feel for our Neptune Beach office and gave them a firm budget and only one week to complete the reno while the staff were on vacation. Paula’s team more than delivered. In fact, the result brought me to tears! The colors, the overall feeling, the harmonious flow is more than I expected. I can’t thank Paula and Del Mar Designs enough. They have my wholehearted recommendation for any project; they are an amazing team.
— Dr. Michelle DeFelice Hucke, Jax Beaches Family Dentistry
Working with Helena was definitely a positive experience. She listened to what I wanted to do, guided me in making appropriate choices, and had the resources available to do what needed to be done —- for which I am very grateful and pleased with the results.

I would like to thank you and your design firm for allowing me the opportunity to work with the most knowledgeable and educated designers I have ever had the pleasure to be associated with. I have experienced your clients receiving undivided attention regardless of their project size, and your library of resources is amazing. I have respected your work from the time we met and now I truly respect and appreciate your friendship as well.

Interior Design client testimonials are just one way our customers tell us we have done right by them. Referrals is another. We feel very blessed to have been able to build our firm with referrals since 1992.
