BAINBRIDGE ISLAND RESIDENCE
“We recently worked with Tammara Stroud on an extensive kitchen remodel and great room plan and decor. We found Tammara on Houzz.com after falling in love with her portfolio. Before meeting in person she had me send her my idea books from Houzz.com and by the time of our first meeting she had completely understood our personal style and presented some beautiful options for our kitchen and great room. All along our journey together she was professional, warm, responsive and so very helpful. Tammara has an amazing eye for color and design. We could not be happier with our final results and look forward to working with Tammara again in the future.”
“I feel so fortunate and blessed to have found Tammara Stroud. We were in the middle of a major remodel, feeling lost and overwhelmed. We interviewed several designers, but, initially, we were unable find the perfect fit. And then we discovered Tammara (and Caroline). Eureka! We struck designer gold. With Tammara and Caroline on board, we were no longer lost and overwhelmed. They listened carefully (and patiently) to our likes and dislikes and created a design plan that was both consistent with our personal vision and vastly superior to anything we could’ve accomplished on our own. If you are looking for a designer in the Seatte area, you cannot go wrong with Tammara Stroud and her team. They are worth every penny and more.”

“My husband and I purchased a very dated home built in the 1970’s knowing we would need to remodel. After combing through Houzz and reading reviews I called Tammara Stroud which has turned out to be the best decision of the entire process. Tammara immediately began modifying the architect’s plan, reviewing our Houzz profile, and discussing our time frame. She made contractor recommendations and was ready to go when the project timeline unexpectedly moved up due to a leaking roof. Tammara’s professionalism, preparedness and great taste made all meetings quick; within 35 minutes of our first remodel meeting, my husband and I reviewed all materials and had firm decisions. After that meeting, we handed over all decisions and she has not disappointed. Tammara selected our cabinets, counter tops, flooring, wall color, light fixtures, furniture and window coverings AND worked with each of the subs to ensure that everything is perfect. She is prompt in her replies to my texts and emails and even kindly listens to my whining during the long process. I look forward to her and Carolyn’s site visits as it now feels like they are good friends. We highly recommend Tammara Stroud Design and look forward to future projects with her and her team.”
“We hired Tammara to help with the design for a kitchen, living room and two bathroom remodel. She did the design and layout of the kitchen, helped pick out finishes for all the rooms and then finally helped decorate once the remodel was complete. Our project lasted 6 months and Tammara and her associates helped the entire way through the project.
We couldn’t be happier with how our house looks now, it is everything we hoped it would be. My husband and I have very different tastes and Tammara was able to find a middle ground that satisfied both of our requests simultaneously. Multiple friends who have seen our place have asked for her info so that they too could use her too.
She is very professional, helpful and responds to emails within a timely manner.
We will definitely use her again when we are ready to renovate the outside of our house!”

“Tammara and Carolyn helped me every step of the way with a custom home— and they were AMAZING. I have the most beautiful house I have ever seen. Every finish, color, choice was perfect. They did a wonderful job to clarify and focus my vision. Together, we picked all exterior and interior finishes and colors. They gave me the perfect amount of choice in each decision. It was never overwhelming. I always felt the vision was mine, perfected. The tile, flooring, fixtures all were under their guidance. And the cherry on top? Beautiful furnishings. Each time I step into my house, I am amazed that this is my home. It is simple, coastal, comfortable, natural— everything I dreamed. Thank you to Tammara Stroud and co. I really couldn’t be happier!”
“We hired Tammara to design our entire home interior and consult on exterior color. It is a rare professional who has natural artistic talent, ability to communicate well, attention to detail and an eye for value. We’ve been very happy with Tammara’s service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any major design overhaul. She has an innate talent for original design while successfully interpreting the individual style of her clients. Your home will look unique, pulled together and most importantly, a reflection of you. She follows through on the inevitable myriad of details involved in chasing orders and contractor timelines. She’s easy to work with and has the highest standards of excellence. She is transparent in her billing and wants to make sure her clients are satisfied throughout the process. Tammara is a consummate professional!”
“We moved into a new house that was much larger and more modern than our previous house. Tammara provided complete service including color consultation for the whole house, window treatments and furniture layout and selection for 5 rooms. We were thrilled with the final product. The furnishing are stylish and comfortable, well coordinated and she selected materials and styles that fit our lifestyle and can stand up to 2 young children. She took the time to listen to us and understand our preferences, then worked those into her suggestions. If something was not quite what we wanted she worked immediately to fix it or provide an excellent alternative. She is efficient and professional. She’s also fun to work with. She gets our highest recommendation.”
“I’ve been working with Tammara and her team for the past year. She guided me through the design and finish selections for our 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath remodel including tile, counters, fixtures, paint, flooring, and furniture. I’m now working with her on where to place the art. She is extremely professional, fair, accessible — and most importantly — she has outstanding taste. She really has a great eye and intuition. I can’t recommend her enough!”
“I hired Tammara to do all of the design work for a three-phase remodel of our 1940s cottage. She started in the basement and will move to the master bedroom, bathroom, and finally to the kitchen, dining, and family rooms. I contacted Tammara based on a strong recommendation, though I was initially hesitant because it would be a long distance project. We planned and completed phase one with several face-to-face meetings, telephone conversations and email correspondences. Incredible as it may sound, Tammara has not been to my house, yet I am absolutely delighted with the outcome of phase one! That is a tribute to her skill. A talented painter, Tammara designs each project with an artistic eye, practical use, and her client’s personality in mind. She is helping us create a beautiful, classic home with a fresh twist. Our project is long term, but everything we have done so far has been perfect! I know I will love the final outcome of our project, and I feel very lucky to be working with Tammara.”
“We worked with Tammara after purchasing a new home. We moved from a 1,200 square foot modern townhouse to a 3,500 square foot craftsman bungalow, early 1900s. Tammara helped us make our home feel updated and stylish while respecting the historic character and details of the original home. In addition to furnishings, we also remodeled our basement and main floor bath.
We were impressed by many things about Tammara – to highlight just a few…
– She nailed a design aesthetic (Swedish modern) that fit both my and my husband’s tastes, and blended perfectly with the rustic, almost cabin-feel of our house.
– We appreciated her process of meeting with us, collecting measurements, generating CAD drawings with layout options and then fabric samples and furniture options.
– Her taste level is superb. She has an artist’s eye and curates a lovely design aesthetic from room to room.
– She is professional to a tee. She’s direct, responsive to questions, willing to troubleshoot, open to feedback and executes. She also has an excellent network of resources from contractor, to handyman, to carpet guy and myriad furniture manufacturers and suppliers
– Her assistant Carolyn is also excellent!!”
“When my boyfriend and I moved into our oddly-shaped house last year, none of our old furniture would fit and we knew we had to ditch everything and start from scratch. But we didn’t know where to begin in terms of color, furniture and general aesthetics – the whole idea of buying new furniture and decorating was overwhelming. So, for the first time ever – we decided to hire a designer. We found Tammara on houzz (she has the best portfolio by far) and we are so glad we did! She really got to know us – so the ideas she presented were spot-on in terms of our personalities and lifestyle. She followed through and she always (and I mean always) had ideas for us and suggestions when we weren’t sure what direction to take. Overall, Tammara did an excellent job and she was a delight to work with. Her chosen contractors are extremely professional and were a joy to work with as well. I highly recommend Tammara to anyone who wants to see their home transformed into an amazing new space. We are still getting compliments not only from people who visit our house for the first time, but from folks who have visited us before and fall in love with the ambience and artistic detail all over again.”
