Don’t take our word for it. See what our clients have to say!
We found Cocó because of our shared life of raising special needs children. We were looking for local friends and neighbors to share the journey. What we found was so much more. She and her family embraced us and made us a part of their life. She became our sounding board, decorator, interpreter, and support network. Our new home seemingly had little work needed in beginning stages, but oh the surprises we uncovered on the journey! She has patiently stayed with us, helping us work through the chaos while also encouraging us to see the future possibilities that can and will happen after the dust literally settles. She never loses her enthusiasm and helps us stay positive as well.
The rooms that her hands have touched have been transformed into lovely, livable spaces that have both style and function for our family. She has amazing creative ideas that truly reflect who we are as a family. You see us in the rooms, not just her vision and ideas. She understands the accommodations we need for our special needs son and thinks through key things like storage, flow, multi-function furniture, and accessibility. All of this while keeping our budget forefront. She is a person with creativity that abounds and an infectious spirit that inspires you.
We hired Cocó Interior Design to design our newly renovated house and they exceeded all expectations. Cocó somehow manages to balance fierce creativity and artistic vision with consummate professionalism and flawless project management. Simply put: SHE IS GIFTED. She managed to transform our house into a modern day sanctuary, great for relaxation when necessary but also with the ability to entertain guests and family. Throughout the whole process she and her team were efficient, friendly, straightforward, hardworking and darn-right inspiring. Her willingness to search far and wide to find the perfect elements made all the difference. We now have the most amazing master bedroom and master bathroom with a wonderful chandelier. How she found this, I'll never know.
Perhaps the strongest endorsement we can make is that we have recommended Cocó Interior Design to our closest friends (who in turn have worked with her and recommended them to their close friends). Thank you Cocó for our wonderful home!
Everyone says you meet the right person at the right time and boy was that true when I met Cocó. My husband and I were in the midst of submitting plans to the city of South Miami when Cocó and I first met. I explained that I was in desperate need of help since we were designing our home from the ground up. Cocó jumped on board without hesitation and we began to work together on our family’s dream home. She helped reconfigure our plans and met with our architect to come up with the best floor plan, even if that meant changing the whole master suite layout! She met with contractors, changed colors of walls until we found the “right white” and even shopped with me for accessories! She was instrumental in bringing our vision to reality while still being mindful of our budget. Cocó’s vision, dedication and talent make her a true pleasure to work with...and now call a friend!
Cocó was absolutely amazing from start to finish! I had always wanted an open concept home, especially with small children. My husband and I hired Cocó and her team to renovate our kitchen, knock down a wall to make the kitchen flow into the family room, design built-ins to maximize the space, and furnish and accessorize the family room. We also had Cocó redesign the furniture layout in our living room and dining room. The completed project exceeded my expectations!!! She has such a great eye for design! To top it off, Cocó was so easy to work with... excellent communication, organized and thorough.
Cocó has been my friend for over 3 decades and her sense of style, her keen eye for decor, her passion and creativity have increased tenfold since we were tweens deciding how to style our outfits for dance recitals. It is precisely that passion and creativity that sets her above and makes her a true warrior spirit in anything she takes on. I'm so proud of my friend for sharing her talents and making so many people happy.
For my family, Cocó transformed an oversized outdoor patio space into a luxury oasis that makes us feel like we are on vacation every time we step outside. From her suggestions of an oval granite table with a custom wrought iron base that can fit 12 guests, to a circular wicker lounger with neutral toned cushions, to accent palm trees, and an outdoor kitchen, the patio is the most frequently used space in our home--and lucky for me, I get to think of my friend every time I step onto it. #thatswhatfriendsarefor #besttaste #stylequeen #creativity #knackfordecor
I had the pleasure of working with Cocó during an extensive search for my first home in Miami, helping me identify those that would require remodeling, yet remain within the scope of my budget. When we would arrive to a house Cocó was able to clearly articulate her vision of bringing the space to life. She listened carefully to each item on my wish list and would offer design elements for remodeling projects, and come up with creative solutions for anything that was missing from my list. Her ability to identify potential issues with remodel projects really helped me prioritize needs. Her expertise really shines in being able to clearly point out areas that could be remodeled to bring the most value to the home. Cocó is a true real estate, interior designer and home concierge gem all in one! Her easy going, yet perfectionist tailored approach really sets her apart from other designers!
Being a realtor and listing your own home can be a challenge. For any staging or design ideas, Cocó is my only choice. She has the ability to create a welcoming flow with style and warmth that ushers a prospective buyer past the front door. She is professional, respects my schedule and is up to date on the latest trends in the design field and real estate market. Her energy is contagious; she makes a project fun! I recommend her, knowing I actually did a prospective client a huge favor by bringing her on in our sales efforts.
Cocó Interior Design really saved the day over at Chez Marcial. We had been talking about remodeling our master bedroom for years but never knew exactly what direction to go in. With her help we were able to establish the style we liked and then develop the look and feel. Cocó is a star; she helped us pick everything from the paint to the furnishings and gave us ideas on how to make our tiny master bedroom seem larger without sacrificing important things like storage and entertainment. But where Cocó really shines is in the finishing touches. She brought in a gorgeous color palette mixed in different materials, that I never thought would go together, and tied it up with the most beautiful textures that brought our bedroom from pedestrian to luxurious all in just a few weeks. She is so dedicated, detail-oriented and organized that she made the process a breeze and left us with a master bedroom that belongs in a design magazine.
We had an amazing experience and loved working with Cocó. She made the process so easy and stress-free. She was able to source all of the items we wanted and negotiated with each vendor, so as to ensure we got the best deals possible. We highly recommend her for her straightforwardness, work ethic, professionalism, attention to detail and for making it such a fun process!
After she had worked on my sister’s home, I approached Cocó to help me with my condo in South Beach. She was 8 months pregnant with her second child, and I was a bachelor wanting to step up the look of my place. Two different worlds, but she immediately understood what I was looking for and presented a design plan within my budget...and both of our timeframes. Keeping up with her on shopping expeditions, pregnant and all, was quite a trip. She was pragmatic, efficient and fun to work with. I love to host friends and thanks to her, I now have a great spot to do so.
