Testimonials

Bel Air Bath“…elegant, fun, timeless and perfect.”

“Rande is a complete pleasure to work with. She has exquisite taste and I love the way she works. She gave me choices every step of the way, from tile to paint colors, to counters, sinks and hardware. With each decision to be made, she would find a choice that was in my comfort zone and at the same time offer other options that helped me explore a new style. Along the way I discovered a bold, brave new “me” which is now expressed in my home. The bathrooms are elegant, fun, timeless and perfect. Rande was also cost conscious and always supported my budget with options and common sense. She had everything ordered and delivered for the contractor to install— so the project moved fast and on schedule. Rande had a great shorthand with the contractor and together everything ran like clockwork! Can’t wait to do another project with Rande soon!”

Studio City Contemporary“…great design insight and is so easy to work with.”

“I am so thankful that Rande came into my life! While I love design, putting it all together by myself is not my forte. I liked her from the  moment we spoke on the phone! She was so personable and friendly with wonderful ideas and suggestions. When we had our first meeting, I felt I’d already known her for a long time! Rande has been a huge source of knowledge, great ideas and so incredibly helpful with showing me different colors and furniture for every room. She has great design insight and is so easy to work with. I highly recommend her as she will be an asset to helping put together a cohesive, beautiful home with great taste and style. She’s the best!”

“It was a pleasure to work with Rande during the recent renovation of my kitchen and two bathrooms.

The result was fantastic and I’m very pleased with how great everything looks.”

“I like how she thinks outside of the box…”

“Rande’s knowledge paired with her confidence is what attracted me to her initially. She helped me furnish a few rooms of my home and was always respectful in listening to my preferences yet always brought a different element to the table. She is extremely reliable and responsive. I appreciate that she always provided me with a wide variety of choices and we were able to determine the best one as a team. I like how she thinks outside of the box while keeping cost and the reality of my three children in mind. I would definitely use her again and refer her to friends and family.”

“You cannot find a better designer in L.A.”

“Rande is an amazing person and designer. She is so patient and helpful. We did a full remodel on our home and Rande has been there to guide and advise us and hold our hands when we weren’t able to make a decision. My favorite part is going to see tile and furniture with Rande — everyone knows her at all the best showrooms in LA! You cannot find a better designer in L.A. Rande is not only kind, patient, has great taste, but she is trustworthy and has a lot of integrity. Trusting our designer was important to us. Looking forward to finishing the last of the remodel with her; Rande is someone you will enjoy working with! We recommend her without hesitation.”

“I’ve worked with quite a few designers for both business and home and for me, selecting the right person to work with is a stressful process.

“…each detail is covered and the quality of the work is outstanding!”

“I have been so impressed and have had such a wonderful experience with Rande, I decided to write so others could know what a lifesaver she has been for us. I had never worked with a designer before but decided I really needed help because I wanted to remodel the kitchen and change the color scheme of our new home.

“…you feel as though you’re working with a friend.”

“Rande is a pleasure to work with. She is very professional but makes you feel as though you’re working with a friend. She has wonderful ideas but is also great at listening to her clients ideas and turning those into a reality. Remodeling is often very expensive and stressful. The work she helped us do in our home looks wonderful and we are very happy we used Rande to make the process a more enjoyable one. We would use Rande to help us decorate in the future and would highly recommend her.”

Traci Feldman  – Bel Air


“Rande was a master at showing me the 3 or 4 perfect pieces of tile, fabric, flooring etc. to choose from.”

“I am so grateful to have had Rande work with me on updating my den. I was totally overwhelmed trying to make choices on my own. We refaced an old brick fireplace, replaced floors, curtains, painted, did electrical upgrades and all new furniture. The works. Rande was a master at showing me the 3 or 4 perfect pieces of tile, fabric, flooring etc. to choose from. It was such a relief to have such great choices at my fingertips. I used one of the contractors she recommended. She discussed the project in detail with him and was always there to answer any questions the workers had. I am now enjoying my new den and will be happy to use Rande again for any future projects.”

Lorraine Bart  –Sherman Oaks


“Rande possesses that …keen ability to quickly grasp and understand the tastes and style of her clients!”

“We found Rande Leaman through Houzz and thank goodness we did…we LOVE working with her! Rande did an amazing job of keeping us on track to help us stay consistent with our choices of materials and finishes. Our experience was truly collaborative as she acted as a sounding board for our ideas as well as helped us pick out specific items like paint, tile, countertops and furniture when we needed it. She provided valuable information regarding manufacturers and solid recommendations for finding the best in quality and pricing. One of the many talents Rande possesses that really sets her apart is her keen ability to quickly grasp and understand the tastes and style of her clients. She is very patient and has a great working style that subtly guides you without being forceful with her opinion. She has turned our house into a beautiful home and we can’t recommend her highly enough!”

“Rande is amazing! “

“…what a dream job…”

“I had the pleasure of working with Rande this past summer and what a dream job it was. She got me immediately and understood my needs and wants. She was very prompt to answer a call or an email. And the great thing about Rande is that she made me look at colors that I never would have thought of. My home has her stamp and I love it!”

Evelyn & Jim Dauterive  – Studio City


“…it felt like elves transformed my home while I was working!”

“Rande is wonderful! She did a beautiful job designing my new home. She helped with furniture placement and selected many beautiful pieces of furniture including a dining room table and chairs, desk, coffee table and TV console. She had pillows made and recovered two chairs that look gorgeous. She also selected and placed artwork. I am a busy working mom, and she would often be at my house to let workmen in while I was away — I joked that it felt like elves transformed my home while I was working!”

Dr. Tara Zuker  – Sherman Oaks


“Love, love, love what Rande did for our bedroom!”

“The room desperately needed to be updated. Rande’s keen eye and great sense of style made all the difference for us. We painted, had new drapes made, replaced old hardware, removed a bulky piece of furniture and hung a TV on the wall. The room is beautiful now — we love it! Thanks again for everything! ”

Lisa & Mark Tobey  –Glendale


“Rande understood my vision and found the perfect fabrics…”

“Rande’s support exceeded our expectations.”

“We couldn’t have been happier with Rande’s level of professionalism, responsiveness and ability to deliver on very colorful options for the rooms we asked her help with.

The final results were within our budget (both time and money) and we are very pleased with the outcome. Lastly, Rande truly wants to understand her clients and designs solutions for them that reflect the owners tastes in a comfortable environment. Great job by Rande and we look forward to partnering with her on future projects.”

“Her design taste, knowledge and expertise is top notch..”

“Rande has been and continues to be a pleasure to work with! My husband hired her to design our living room as a birthday present to me a year ago. We liked her so much that we’ve continued on to other spaces and had her design an extended kitchen desk area. It was great to have her coordinate with the contractor and suppliers. Her design taste, knowledge and expertise is top notch, all while being so down to earth and easy to work with. We never felt pressured and she always gives lots of options that fit within our budget. She knows where to find great pieces and good deals. I definitely recommend contacting her for your design needs!”

Erica & Phil Perry  – Studio City


“Rande is professional, personable and easy to work with.”

“Thank you Rande for your expert guidance and aesthetic as we slowly, but surely, redo some of our rooms! She has been a life-saver and has superb taste and really knows what colors will work together in a room. She also finds the greatest vendors who not only have fair prices, but more importantly do excellent work. Rande is very professional, personable and so easy to work with. I recommend Rande Leaman Interior Design to anyone looking for a design expert.”

Tamara Schiff  – Tarzana


“We recommend her highly.”

“Can’t say enough good things about Rande. She proved to be extremely creative, helpful and often went the extra mile to assure that we got what was needed to make the project as perfect as possible. Her advice, suggestions and professionalism made our remodel project go as smoothly as one could hope for. She is personable and co-operative to the nth degree. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and we recommend her highly.”

“Remarkably fast in turning around great results.”

“We had a specific budget that was smaller than our wish list of projects. We hired Rande who delivered not only beautiful and livable spaces but also guided us through the process in order to keep us in budget. Rande is creative and delightful to work with. She was responsive and remarkably fast in turning around great results. Rande provides her professional opinion but never forgets that it is your house, not hers. She makes sure to accommodate your specific requirements (for us it was incorporating key pieces we had collected over the years, and our dog!) while ensuring the final results are fabulous. Can’t wait for Phase Two!”

Vicki & Bruce Nussbaum  – Hollywood Hills


“Rande went above and beyond throughout the entire process…”

“We hired Rande to help us decorate our new home, and she has been fabulous to work with from day one. She really took the time to understand our style and our goals for how we wanted the new house to feel for our family. We had never used a designer before, and I now understand how finding the right person actually helps you save money overall — there are the obvious designer discounts, but Rande also found some hidden gems in inexpensive local stores that were perfect for our house. And we didn’t make the pricy mistakes we had made when buying (the wrong!) furniture for our previous home. Rande also connected us with great local vendors who did a wonderful job at a good price. When we had a little hiccup with the wallpaper order for one room, Rande took care of it immediately and kept the project on schedule. She went above and beyond throughout the entire process, making sure every detail was right.
Rande is a pleasure to work with, and I’m already looking forward to getting her help with some other rooms. I highly recommend her.”

bluepainting“My dining and living space was transformed.”

“I highly recommend Rande for interior design! She is amazing and has helped me for the past year as time and budget has allowed. There is no way I could have ended up with a room that I would love as much as I do without her help. She also helped with a remodel in the bathroom, which she made look like a million bucks for very little money. My dining and living space was transformed and I write this in appreciation for all the TLC Rande offered through the process. She is very good at what she does.”

Kim Easton – Santa Monica


“We are so happy with the end result!”

“Rande did a fantastic job for us. She has a great attitude and is a pleasure to work with. Her insight and vision helped us to choose the best colors, fabrics and furniture for our house. We know she had other projects going at the same time, but we always felt like we were her only client. Everything looks just beautiful and we are so happy with the end result!”

Colleen Pace – Valley Village


“She changed the look of my house in such a great way.”

“Rande just helped me redo my entire living room and I am loving it! It changed the look of my house in such a great way. It is cozy but elegant and modern. She helped me find great pieces from all over at really nice prices as well. I have pets and finding a rug that worked and was durable was a challenge, but she had a great rug source that had the perfect one. Everyone who sees my living room comments on how great it looks. It’s exactly what I was looking for and she was great to work with. I can’t wait to have her help me again when needed and to also refer her to friends and clients. She is a real gem!”

Elizabeth Marquart Sherman Oaks


“Her ideas are fresh and elegant…”

“We hired Rande to advise us on redecorating our dining room and living room. Her ideas were fresh and elegant and exactly what we were looking for. She was very professional and honest in her approach and sensitive when it came to our budget. We love her style and her color choices. We are quite happy with our new look.”

Debra Levonian Encino


“Her intuition shines in picking the perfect accent pieces to bring a room to life.”

“Rande Leaman provided the perfect blend of guidance and terrific taste in the decorating of my new house. It was a complete pleasure to have the assistance of someone who never quashed my ideas, but kept me from veering from my vision. She was extremely easy to work with and so accommodating. She provided an aura of calm during what, for me, could have been a chaotic experience. I’m so appreciative of her steady hand in all matters. Her intuition shines in picking the perfect accent pieces to bring a room to life. On top of that, I’ve made a new friend! Thank you Rande!!!”

“You can count on Rande to get the job done!”

“Rande was a pleasure to work with. After just one meeting she knew exactly what I wanted. She presented me with design ideas that fit not only my home but my style and personality. She really understood what I wanted and what my needs were. She followed up to make sure everything was implemented as contracted. You can count on Rande to get the job done! I would recommend her and would use her for all my future design needs.”

Jennifer Muldoon – Bel Air


“…I highly recommend her.”

“Working with Rande was delightful…she’s not only talented and professional, but also creative and practical. Rande has a great eye and figured out a unique solution to deal with space constraints in our odd-shaped guest room. She added a wonderful textured background to one wall and it looks  fantastic! She also styled our “stuff” as only an experienced decorator can. She is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her.”

Dara Barker – Pacific Palisades


“Working with Rande is likened to spending time not only with a consummate professional in the interior design world but a friend.”

PPchair“I have worked with her many times over the past few years and she has always been there for me with my home décor needs.  One of her many gifts is styling and I trust her implicitly to not only use what I already have in my home but apply her magical finishing touches that make every room look as if it is straight from the pages of the home décor magazines.  Her knack for detail is astounding.  Her standards are extremely high and will not accept anything less than perfect from the craftsmen she works with to the details of the final product.  Rande thinks outside the box and isn’t afraid to combine eras, colors and materials.  She can make any room look personalized to my needs as well as honor those of my husbands.  One of my favorite things was to design a piece of furniture with her and create not only a look that was perfect for our home but a functional piece that provided us what we needed to live with.  Whenever I need a new piece or a complete remodel of part of our home I look to Rande.  I am happy to have met her and I feel blessed to have her assistance and guidance with our home.”

Dove Rose—Studio City


“The process was fun and the result exceeded our expectations.”

“We really enjoyed working with Rande. The process was fun and the result exceeded our expectations. We sought her guidance to decorate two rooms in our home within a tight deadline and subject to a tight budget. We had just moved in from a smaller home so we needed a lot of new furniture and we had committed to host a fundraiser within weeks. Rande listened to our needs — we wanted beautiful furniture and decor that would also work well with our very young children — and she presented us with a variety of options that we loved. Selecting the colors, furniture pieces, fabrics, and rugs was fun and effortless. Once the key decisions were made, Rande worked closely with the manufacturers and vendors to ensure everything went as planned. As an example, she made sure to be at our home when fixtures were installed to confirm that the chandelier was installed at the precise requisite height. Rande is a consummate professional and she sets a high bar but she does so with a wonderful attitude and a smile which ensures the process is pleasant for everyone involved. We are continuing to work with her on yet another room and we would — and do — recommend her to all our friends.”

Valerie & Matt Littman— Studio City


“The end result was effortless and stunning”

“Working with Rande was truly an easy and enjoyable creative experience. We were thrilled with the two rooms she completed for us and are looking forward to starting on our master bedroom next. We loved her vision and appreciated her listening to ours. The end result was effortless and stunning!”

Sharon Demayo—Beverly Hills


“I cannot say enough good things about Rande. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a decorator/designer and a fun person to work with.”

“I had recently just moved from a large house into a smaller townhouse and had to buy all new furniture. Because I was working long hours, I had very little time to search on my own and decided I needed an experienced decorator to help me. I knew what I liked and what I didn’t like — I just couldn’t put it all together.

I met with Rande and told her of my dilemma. On her first visit and consultation we discussed the direction in which I would like to go and the colors and styles that I like. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. I knew that she would be great to work with. On our next visit she brought over all types of materials and pictures of furniture that she thought could work. She was not pushy at all and made me feel so comfortable. She had really listened to me and was able to put together my beautiful living room and den. Rande is always there when furniture is delivered and supervises to make sure that everything looks just right. She even found the perfect artwork. We are still working on other parts of my house. She is so efficient and we have so much fun putting everything together. She contacts me the minute she finds something that she thinks that I might like, yet, she respects that I am on somewhat of a budget.  I cannot say enough good things about Rande. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a decorator/designer and a fun person to work with. In fact, I will miss seeing her when we are done!”

Ellen Herdeg — Encino


“I found Rande to be not only a skilled designer but very personable and would readily turn to her with any future design projects and recommend her without hesitation.”

“I had the privilege of working with Rande on the redesign of several rooms  in my home.  She is a great listener and remained attentive to my concerns and vision for the outcome while guiding me in making novel and attractive design choices that I would not have considered on my own.  She effectively incorporated my prized old pieces with new ones to achieve the desired contemporary look I was after.  Her patience, enthusiasm and creativity  made it a pleasure to work with her.  I found Rande to be not only a skilled designer but very personable and would readily turn to her with any future design projects and recommend her without hesitation.”

Margo Weinberg — Encino


“Rande understood the look we were trying to achieve and consistently provided us with gorgeous furniture, paint and upholstery choices within our price range.”
