Ben Blair:
Dear James,
I would like to thank you for all your hard work on the design of my bathroom. Your professionalism & enthusiasm made what I expected to be a long and difficult project into a very enjoyable experience. Your skills at listening to what I wanted and narrowing down my choices was a “Big” help to this process.
Your skills as a designer with color and style are excellent and the finished bathroom turned out better than I could have imagined, Also, your interfacing with the general contractor and following up with all the details just made this project run that much smoother.
I look forward to working with you on my living room project.
Thanks for all your help and hard work,

Dear James,
As we have discussed I have not had great interactions or results with Interior Designers before. I hate shopping and I know what I like when I see it but can’t quite translate it to the right look.
My daughter and I have had so much enjoyment and excitement since you began our project. Your ability to read, and listen to our needs and tastes have made this challenge a wondrous reality. You have paid attention to the budget, our time constraints and my fear of shopping. You have kept us smiling and gone to battle for us with the furniture company’s when we needed your help.
Thank you for a superb “Mission Accomplished,” Krista and I are looking forward too more re-do’s and enjoying our new home thanks to your talents and understanding. I would highly recommend your services to anyone whose homes have special challenges and space constraints and those who especially loathe shopping.

Nancy & Rick Rasmussen:
My Relationship with James D’Ambrosio began in 1994 when he was working for a retail store. As a new customer, I was impressed with James’ superb customer service skills, returning my phone calls promptly advising me on fabric and furniture selections, offering ideas and solutions as needed, and working with me until the job was complete.
Throughout the years, I have kept in contact with James and have hired him as a designer for two different homes my husband and I have purchased. I trusted James’s skills to advise us in the process of selecting furniture, window treatments, paint colors and accessories. James kept in mind my budget and was successful in creating a home that had a designer look, while keeping in mind our particular style and taste.
We are currently working with James again on a kitchen remodel and the process has been fun, easy and stress free. He has referred us to a fabulous general contractor, cabinet manufacturer and faux painter. I highly recommend James as and Interior Designer. He is friendly, talented, budget conscience and professional!

Peter Davis:
James was referred by a neighbor that had used D’Ambrosio Designs with fantastic results. Another friend of his, also in San Jose, had great results from James’s work.
James brought design options that had never occurred to me and this helped make the design just right. His experience in getting the right crews really helped finish the work in a timely manner, Fully to my satisfaction. During a stressful time, James was there to get a problem solved quickly and correctly. His eye caught things that my eye missed before the final walk through that were corrected to great standards.
I really needed a project manager and I got everything I needed. His outstanding contacts in the industry were evident with the professional service I got from all the crews: construction, plumbing, painting , demolition, asbestos, flooring, and lighting services.
Best wishes in your remodeling!
I’ll use use D’Ambrosio Designs in the future.

Cheryl Dermer:
I’d Like to thank you so much for assisting me with window treatments for my kitchen and family room. You are such a joy to work with, and I’m so pleased with the final product. It has made such a difference in the overall look and feel of my home.
I must say that I was somewhat “stressed” over choosing window treatments for these two rooms. I had purchased some furniture from a local retail showroom, you were highly recommended for your services to complete the rooms. The time and care you took in my project went above and beyond what I’ve experienced before. You showed me many different options and brought up several points that I didn’t think of when choosing my treatments. Your expertise was greatly appreciated, and your attention to detail was phenomenal.
I’m so glad I have you to count on to take the “headache” out of my home improvement/decorating needs. I’ll be calling you soon to begin another project.
