Here is what people are saying...

My small Manhattan apartment is gorgeous thanks to David.  When I first moved in, it was boring: white, off-white, off-off-white... no more.  With his brilliant eye for color, he transformed my blah walls, with just the right amount of faux finish touches.  He also rearranged my furniture, creating a more spacious feeling, which is priceless in a New York apartment with limited space. I highly recommend him!

I hired David to remodel, paint and totally furnish a condo I bought as a second home in Fort Lauderdale. After discussing my dollar budget, David informed me that my place would be totally updated and newly refined within a matter of weeks. Since my primary home was up north, and I needed to return to work, I felt quite comfortable to let David proceed with the project, therefore I provided him with a blank check to make any required expenditures to complete the remodeling. He just seemed totally trustworthy and it turned out, I was right. Over the next couple of weeks, He called me numerous times going over his plans and costs. Three weeks from when I left, I returned and was stunned to find a beautiful new home. He had overseen everything from all new flooring, complete new bath room, new kitchen counters, appliances, and refinished cabinets. He had painted and faux finished the place himself and totally furnished the place right down to towels and bedding. I was blown away. To top this off, he had an itemized list of every dollar spent and had stayed within my budget. I didn't think he could actually pull this off. I can't recommend him high enough.

While kitchen renovations will inherently have problems, finding the right team to have the ability to solve the problems is the key to a successful project.  David Mayer was the team leader for our renovation and he was terrific.  He was able to spot a problem before it became an issue, offered quick and efficient solutions, and resolved everything through the life the project.  He incorporated his keen sense of design with his solutions... often making the solution better than the original design.   David was consistently on site managing the subcontractors, and was very respectful of our schedules, property and needs as we were living in the small apartment during the work.  We are very happy with our updated kitchen, and grateful that we had David Mayer's help throughout the renovation.    Barbara Van Benschoten

David came with his color samples, even after I told him I didn't think I needed them as I had already picked out a color.  He brought them anyway and it turned out that he was right.  I had fallen in love with a picture in a magazine, but that color didn't match my rug or curtains.  I thought it might compliment it, but it was not worth taking the chance!  I followed his suggestion of using 2 colors and what a great outcome!  His detail work of the picture frame rails was perfection! 

I cannot wait for him to do the living room now.  He is a perfectionist and a nice man too!  God bless you David!  I will be sending my friends and neighbors your way.

My home is beautiful thanks to David.  I have a two bdrm condo and all I had chosen was the colors I wanted. The colors that made me feel good. It all started with the fabric for my couch.  I had all these ideas from magazines, and I had no way to put it together.

    I conveyed all my ideas to David, showed him pictures and told him of my thoughts of how I wanted my home to look and feel.

    I knew I needed a dining room table, but I didn't want to see fingerprints.  So, he came up with the idea of cracked glass, like that of a cracked windshield.  It is magnificent.

    He was able to put things together.  Things didn't necessarily have to be expensive to look good.  I had seen my den (office) furniture with one of the major furniture companies.  It was quite expensive.  He told me he could make it work without having that huge expensive.  He did.  I spend quite a bid of time in my den, and everything is perfect.

    He made my ideas work and come to life.  He never pushed, but suggested.  When I stood back I realize he was right.

    He's patient and tolerant and never pushy, and has a real flare for design and a special sense of color.

I have worked with David over the past 10 years in everything from painting to design and staging.

As a designer, David has done a great job with placement of furniture. His expertise has allowed me to sell my clients' homes faster and for more money.

I have also worked with David commercially for both my office and restaurant where David picked out materials and colors that always gave my clients the WOW factor.  

As a painter, David is also very fast and efficient.  He gets the job done in less time and cleans up after every job. You never know he has been there with the exception of the smell of fresh paint.

I highly recommend David for all your interior design, staging and painting work.

I love my new home thanks to Decorative David

There is nothing more frustrating when you don't know what you like especially when it comes to decorating

a brand new co-op in the big apple (NYC) . It is some much easier to point out what one hates, or would never allowed in their home. Like a two year old, my use of the word "NO" was heavily used with my interactions with Dave

Most interior designers would have run to the hills after spending a day with me. My constant 180 would have driven a saint to drink. However, Dave was up to the challenge of decorating my new place and dealing with my idiosyncrasies. He definitely had the patient and great design ideas of what would look good in my new place.

As indicated earlier, I spent more time saying "no my taste" or "I don't think so". However, as I became more confident in his talent, I found myself saying "yes" to design ideas that I would never had considered.

There is a world out there that just doesn’t do red.

Instead of having an apartment to live in, I now have a place that feels like home. From the colors of the walls to the accent on the wall, I feel I am truly living the New York city experience. As Robin Leach would say , "its great to live like a millionaire."

David is an incredibly experienced painter and is knowledgeable in all aspects of painting techniques that will best suit a room, color palette selection, and project planning.

He has an ability to understand what the client wants, give them some options, and then deliver what the project needs. I had David paint a vacation home and I can’t tell you how pleased I was...Every time I walk in the house I smile. The place looks bright and airy on the lower level and transitions properly into the bedrooms with a more subdued palette.

His rates are highly competitive and by the way he is a super Realtor as well.
