“Both our homes in Pittsburgh and San Francisco sold quickly – each time we were in markets that were very slow and we were able to sell within one week – my husband and I feel the design of Dee Dubell played an important role.”

Janet R., San Francisco, CA


“Being a busy manager, I’ve learned the importance of delegating. After 17 years, I was moving back into my childhood home. Dee was assigned the task of combining two households in the middle of a major remodeling project. My husband, Mom, and I have individual tastes which Dee artfully combined. With her expertise, we saved time and money avoiding costly mistakes. The end result is a warm inviting home we all love.”

Karen C., Pittsburgh, PA


“The most difficult part of decorating is combating all the frustration you feel when you can’t find what you like, or you become confused by the numerous choices. Working with Dee, this frustration was eliminated. Our home is now comfortable and livable for everyone.”

Flo R., Steubenville, OH


“Thirty years ago Debbie and I purchased a small ranch in O’Hara. Several building phases later, we decided our house needed direction and updating. That’s when we met Dee Dubell, an interior designer. We went from redoing the bathrooms to practically updating the entire house.

Dee has an eye for color and beauty. The bathrooms she designed – wallpaper, fixtures, tile and window treatments all blended together beautifully. We also put in a wonderful new fireplace, new floors and painting the entire house at the direction of Dee. The house finally came together.

Dee was there every step of the way. If we weren’t out with her picking out bathroom fixtures, Dee would bring samples of tile, paint, carpeting, you name it, to our house.

We would recommend Dee to anyone looking to update or build a home!”

“We had avoided remodeling and redecorating our home for many years. The reason for this was we did not feel comfortable with our ability to design and select the materials and accents that would be required. Also, we are not shoppers and avoid shopping at all costs.

D’S Designs took away all of these fears and anxieties. Dee had the ability to learn our personalities, likes, and dislikes. She helped us with every aspect of the remodeling from the countertops, floors, fireplaces and trim to the paint, wallpaper, and fixtures. We soon realized the furnishing and accessories are as important as the renovation. Dee also helped us through this phase of the decorating. When finished, the colors, wallpaper, furnishings and accessories came together beautifully.

We could not be more happy or proud of our home. We could not have done it on our own. The best result of this project is it feels like our home and not a designer’s creations.”

Bob and Patty L., Mars, PA

“Dee” lightful! After five years in our new home it was time to update our great room and breakfast nook. The dark over-sized sofa and recliner gave limited seating and dominated the small room. Dee did the impossible and found a solution with several seating areas and the room became comfortable and cozy. With window treatments and accessories it has now become our favorite room. Dee’s choice of a glass topped table instead of dark wood in the breakfast nook opened the space and made it seem larger. Dee’s insight for transforming these rooms was remarkable!”

Jim and Gayle S., Freedom, PA

“The purpose of this letter is to express our appreciation to Dee Dubell for the fine job she did in helping us sell the house we lived in for 35 years. We were having a difficult time deciding what was necessary to be done so our house would sell. Dee suggested many changes. The result was immediately appreciated. Our house sold shortly thereafter. Without her assistance, the process could have taken much longer. 

Dee also helped us select many of the items necessary to complete the building of our new home. She assisted with the selection of: cabinets, paint, flooring, carpeting, granite and the placement of electrical outlets. What a job! Too many decisions to be made at one time by individuals not trained in decorating. Dee helped us feel comfortable with our selections. 

We would be happy to recommened the services of Dee Dubell.”

Paul and Barbara J., Mars, PA

“Dee took our large, open living space and melded the combination of our personality and her professional eye for design into a masterpiece of rich décor that we had never imagined! She helped us realize it is not so much the placement of furniture but more the right selections. We would highly recommend using Dee Dubell for any or all aspects of your next interior design project.”

Carol and Bob W., Mars PA

“For years Dee Dubell has been helping Kaclik Builders. We first employed her in 2003 to do the model in Fieldlake Estates. Since then, she has done many other models, plus making construction selections for spec. homes valued over one million dollars. Dee works with our new construction clients, enabling them to make numerous decisions and meet deadlines. As a result they are less stressed and able to enjoy their building experience. When their home is complete, we have a very satisfied client.

Greg Betant, our home designer, has referred Dee to many of his clients who are building or remodeling. They have thanked Greg, speaking highly of her expert advice and guidance.

Because of Dee’s experience and attention to detail, we know we can count on her to do a great job!”

“It has been a pleasure working with Dee. She has decorated our models, made construction selections for spec. homes, and it was only natural that I call on Dee when my husband, Chris, built our new home. Whenever I have an urgent problem or deadline, Dee always responds quickly, and because I have a hectic schedule, I really value her service and talents. Whenever I refer Dee to my clients, they tell me how much they appreciate her great sense of style and professionalism.”
