“We had the pleasure of working with Tara Bates to do the furnishings in our Pelican Marsh home. We really enjoyed the great service Tara offered. She was on time, returned phone calls promptly, kept on top of any problems, and, most important, had good decorating ideas along with being a pleasant person to work with. Tara’s merchant and vendor contacts saved us a considerable amount time, limiting the amount of shopping we had to do. She listened to our suggestions and incorporated them with her ideas coming up with furnishings that are both functional and appealing. We are proud off the end result.
Tara’s services helped make furnishing our home a pleasant experience. We would highly recommend Tara and are really appreciative of the guidance she offered.”

“My wife Elizabeth and I have had a remarkable experience with Tara Bates.We purchased a house in Pelican Marsh in the Bay Laurel neighborhood. Tara’s husband James Bates of Coldwell Banker was our Real Estate Broker. He provided a magnificent service. James suggested to us to consider using Tara’s interior design services to complete our new house which we bought unfurnished. This was a recommendation that we will be eternally grateful for. We live in Ottawa, Canada and wanted someone to be a full service provider so we could have the house completed as quickly as possible.Tara was able to turn our dream home to what we now call “Paradise”. Tara was able to coordinate all of the furniture purchases, select paint colors, design and renovate a bathroom, hang our pictures and resolve any issues all by phone, email and by samples delivered by courier.It has been such a unbelievable pleasure working with Tara. Elizabeth and I would highly recommend Tara Bates’ interior design services, especially if you want to call your new home “paradise”.Many thanks for all that you have done for us. It has been greatly appreciated.
All the very best,

Arnie Vered

“I was very fortunate to work with Tara. I had misgivings upon hearing we were successful in our bidding process, as honestly it was a sad look property. With Tara’s considerable help, we developed a theme and turned it into one of the most beautiful properties in Mediterra. In fact, all our friends and neighbors come to visit to give them ideas.”
