"After over 25 years of marriage and raising children, we decided to pursue our “empty nest” in Chicago, starting from a clean slate.  Having seen Zach’s work, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to retain him to create a peaceful yet dramatic environment for our small luxury apartment overlooking both Lake Michigan and the northern city skyline.  We’ve often had problems in the past finding agreement when it came to our home decorating ideas — but Zach was able to listen to both of our needs and find just the right solutions to make us both happy.  Make that ecstatic!" - W. McWorter

 

"His keen eye and sharp sense of style pair beautifully and seamlessly with his professionalism and the personal care and attention he provides with every step of the process. From the first meeting I knew that he fully understood the objectives both aesthetically and logistically. It is insufficient to say that he exceeded hopes and expectations. He transcended them by leaps and bounds. There is no way that it would have turned out as beautifully as it did without him as the guide. The selection of pieces and choices that he presented demonstrated his skill and talent every step of the way." - B. Blasingame

 

"A simple "thank you" is not enough to say how amazingly sophisticated and elegant your touch graced my home.  I am still awe struck every day how my condo was transformed into a refined, exquisite home to entertain clients, family and friends.  You have a keen eye for color and it comes very naturally to you.  Most impressive is the way you were able to pick up on my tastes and just elevate it to another level.  I am truly grateful for your work and your attention to the smallest detail." - P. Cantin

 

"Zach Hayes is one of the most professional, thoughtful, considerate and dedicated people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  He has a great eye for design and gets to know his clients, their likes/interests and aversions and is a true collaborator throughout the entire process.  He works well within whatever budget he’s given and comes up with creative solutions to problems as they arise.  He also never loses his cool.  His calm demeanor helps make what could be a stressful process or situation fun and engaging.    I highly recommend him (and have already done so) and would absolutely look to him again for design solutions." - L.
