Designer: Cherie Rose
Janet Berg was invited to attend a home tour in Los Gatos. She learned that those she loved most were influenced by Cherie Rose. Having an original tract home in Willow Glen, Janet knew her home needed updating. The very next day Cherie was at Janet’s home and created designs to enhance Janet’s own ideas.
“I fell in love with Cherie when she came out to meet us,” stated Janet. “She suggested new hardwood floors, new doors throughout the house, new light fixtures, new wall colors and of course, a new kitchen. She took out a wall in our kitchen and moved it out three feet into the living room. This opened up our floor space and connected the kitchen to the living room so I could enjoy conversation with guests while cooking. My new gas stove was built into a granite island with beautiful custom made glass door cabinets. One of the most exciting suggestions she came up with was to add crown molding columns around the kitchen and dining rooms doors for an elegant finish. “My kitchen was perfect!” says Janet. “Our living room fireplace was refaced with the same granite that was selected in the kitchen to pull the rooms together. I had expressed dislike of our vaulted ceilings, so Cherie had them dropped down to create a more modern soffit ceiling.”
“Cherie has an unbelievable talent”, states Janet. “I believe the most impressive thing about her work was the fact that she was so responsive even though I wasn’t a large project for her. She still gave me her undivided attention. Many friends have remodeled their homes and I’ve heard of the nightmares, but with Cherie we did not have one problem. She took care of everything and kept us at ease. The only thing I regret is not doing this years ago while my children were still home to enjoy this with us.”
