Hard to believe a true aesthete, problem solver, and business head all exist in the same person. And add to that her easy grace which has accrued legions of trade contacts up and down the design chain. Somehow Ms. Wright unscrambled my Neanderthal mumblings and created the home I’ve always wanted to live in. For the first time in my life I am house proud. I can’t imagine working with anybody else.
I recently renovated my 2 bedroom apartment in New York. I guess I should really say that Tobi Wright recently renovated my 2 bedroom apartment. This was a complete renovation, including the kitchen and bathrooms. The apartment, in my view, is a marvel. Tobi designed every inch of the apartment including all cabinetry work, moldings and floors, audio and security, lighting and decorations. I could not have done this project without her. As I travel significantly, she was also there to watch and monitor the worked being performed. I can only say that I would highly recommend for any project. It was wonderful to deal with such a hard working professional, great artist and trustworthy person.
“Je ne sais quoi”
Tobi has a great sense of style! She is able to flawlessly organize space as per the Client’s need, while providing that ‘Je ne sais quoi’ through her bubbly aesthetics. I love her use of color.
From the first phone call with Tobi Wright I was fairly certain that she was the person to design our new apartment. When we did meet in person, I was thoroughly convinced. She listened to what I was saying about what I was looking for in a designer, she asked questions that clarified my thoughts so that she could better understand who my husband and I were and what was important to us. Since we were downsizing, we were going to have to make decisions about what we could keep and what would have to be replaced in the new space. In the end almost all the furniture had to be replaced but our most precious possessions found a new home. Early on in our discussions I had told Tobi about my love of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water. She remembered our conversation and used a photograph of Falling Water in winter as the inspiration for the design of our bedroom and most especially the custom design of our bed! We are world travelers and have collected objects and art from our travels. Tobi was able to incorporate most of these precious things in the rooms of the new space. We could not be more pleased with the results of her work. Not only is she creative, she is resourceful and wherever possible gave us choices at different price points. She is an amazing designer and a lot of fun to be around!
“Exactly What I Was Looking For”
Tobi is a pleasure to work with. She has great design ideas and is very professional. She understood exactly what I was looking for and respected my pace. I never felt any pressure to chose something that was close to what I wanted. Tobi kept scouring her sources until she found just what I was looking for even when I didn’t know it! My home is just as I hoped, beautiful and comfortable. I definitely recommend Tobi and Inside Wright.
I had an excellent experience working with Tobi Wright. She was hired to help me freshen up my apartment with some new touches–to give it a more contemporary feel. From the very beginning, she understood what we wanted and made suggestions that we liked. She was professional in every way and easy to work and communicate with. Everything went smoothly and Tobi masterminded the job in a warm and friendly manner. My husband and I are very pleased with the result and are most appreciative of the help and guidance we received from Tobi.
“Worth Every Penny”
Tobi supervised the renovation of our kitchen from floor to ceiling. She first helped us choose a contractor (we interviewed among those she presented). She spoke with us about our tastes and preferences. Then she presented us choices for: flooring, appliances, cabinets, paint colors, counter tops, back-splash, as well as overall kitchen design. If we didn’t like the choices, we spoke more and then she gave us more choices. Tobi supervised delivery and installation of the work. She was very patient with me (I am a pain to work for), charming with the super and the contractor’s men. The job came in exactly on price and was finished a few days early!! Tobi cost us about ~12% of total cost. SHE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. I AM RECOMMENDING HER TO EVERYONE I KNOW.
“Bring Your Dreams to Life”
I’m a designer and worked with Tobi, in helping her create her window display at Summit Rug, NJ. Was a joy to work with Tobi on her project. She has a great talent and vision for her designs. Her window display was spot on and unique. Tobi, has a wonderful personality and great talent. If you are looking for an interior designer to design your home and bring your dreams to life. Tobi Wright is the one to call.
“Captured our Personalities”
We hired Tobi to stage our 2BR 2BA for sale. It’s a nice place…once you can get past all the clutter. Tobi helped us select the best of our items and bought some key eye catching pieces. Our place was utterly transformed. Everyone who knows our place just says, “Wow.” She really brought out the beauty, charm, and room available. AND captured our personalities! We will definitely work with her again!
Tobi is great to work with. She paid close attention to our likes and dislikes and quickly picked up on our style and preferences. She generated a lot of ideas and provided samples and suggestions in a timely manner. Tobi is committed to her work and is very detail oriented, picking up and following through on small and large matters alike. She has good relationships with vendors and showrooms and will take the extra step to find answers. She helped make our new apartment really feel like a home. Our TV/tech person said our wallpaper is his favorite in all of Manhattan, and others who have come into the apartment for one reason or another have taken pictures of the color of our living room walls. Since we don’t live here full-time, I feel a great sense of pleasure every time I walk in the door and see the beautiful, unique and comfortable decor.
