Pamela Frank - Lake Hartwell: New Construction
We hired Mrs. Janice Dietz of the Consulting House to assist in selecting materials for our new home that was under construction. Our project consisted of selections for flooring, plumbing, lighting, interior and exterior colors, cabinet design and all miscellaneous details and decisions that come with home construction. Janice is the measure of a great interior designer. She displayed expert customer service. She was readily available and met all time line requirements. Janice presented a good eye for color and knowledge of materials. For the entire process, Janice was endlessly proactive in advising and educating us. At no time were we overly influenced by her own taste or ideas. Her excellent listening skills allowed her to take our vision, taste and budget and transformed our project from good to gold. We found it to be well worth the investment in seeking out such a skilled and professional counsel as Janice and intend to utilize her services again for the selection and specification of furniture and accessories for our home.
Michelle & Joel Davis - Buckhead Residence: Interior Decorating
My husband and I hired Janice to handle a large interior design project for us. We were delighted with the results, and enjoyed partnering with Janice throughout the process. She is easy to collaborate with, very skillful at her craft, and she worked quickly which we greatly appreciated. She relates well to busy professionals, and was creative in stretching our interior design budget to achieve the serene, relaxed and luxurious environment we asked for. I would absolutely turn to Janice for any future interior design needs.
James Watt - Buckhead Residence: Interior Decorating & Custom Bar Design
I am a busy executive and needed decorating and designing skills for my new home. Being a single man I wanted a place both masculine and inviting to a women. Working with Janice was a delight. Her attention to color and detail was excellent and her ability to bring together electronic window covers, lamps, furniture and color was simply amazing. So much of what we did together was accomplished with my approval over the internet and in a bare minimum of meetings. We accomplished a custom look with some fixtures and furniture that was designed by Janice and custom made of various metals and stones. We worked around the unknown and worked together to accomplish a wonderful home. Janice's range is like a great singer in the surprise you find as it extends beyond your own and opens your senses to more.
Gaye & Henri VandeEerden - Buckhead Residence: House Renovation & Interior Decorating
Janice just gets it! She listened to our needs as a family and understood our sense of style and created spaces in our house that we absolutely love. We now love our house so much we will never move. Her creative and design skills are phenomenal and she also has exceptional business and professional skills. I highly recommend Janice for any and all of your design needs. We wouldn't turn to anyone else.
Marjan & Navid Yavari - Buckhead High Rise Residence: Construction & Interior Decorating
We were moving from a house to a high rise condo and we hired Janice to help us join two units together and decorate our new home. We hired Janice because we were looking for a designer who could think out of the box and bring a creative and unique flair to our design. Janice did a wonderful job and we completely trusted her judgement. She immediately understood the look we were after and we are so pleased with the result. Janice was extremely easy to work with and we thoroughly enjoyed the relationship. I would recommend Janice for any and all design needs.
Valerie & Jim Keifer - Brookhaven Residence: Interior Decorating
We were moving into a new house and we hired Janice to help us select colors for both the exterior and interior and to decorate the entire house. Janice worked extremely well with us and worked in every capacity we requested. Janice was able to deliver exactly to our taste and our taste is more eclectic than many. We highly recommend Janice. She is a truly talented professional.
Kent Berkham - President Metro Painting
Of all the designers I have ever worked with -- and their have been many over my 25 year career - Janice has the best sense of color I have ever seen. Her selections are always just right! She is a pleasure to work with and always meets my deadlines on jobs for color selection.
Roger Dowd - Multiple Residences (5): Design Consultation & Interior Decorating
I initially hired Janice to help me build a 10,000 square foot home. Later I engaged Janice to decorate 3 additional homes in Brookhaven and Sandy Springs and to help me restore and decorate a farmhouse in south Georgia. Janice and I had a great working relationship. I could always count on her and I fully trusted her taste and judgment. Her taste was impeccable and she did a beautiful job for me each time. She decorated the entire first house and the farmhouse from scratch. For my other homes she was great at helping me re-use items I already owned and integrating them with interesting pieces she found. I was very appreciative and knew it was true when Janice would tell me if something I had would not work in the space. Anyone hiring Janice as their designer will be in great hands!
Maria Heckscher - Garden Hills Residence: Interior Decorating & Room Build-Out
I purchased a home in Garden Hills and hired Janice to assist me with decorating as well as transforming a space that was used to house mechanical equipment -- and was not accessible from the interior of the house-- into a lounging and storing area for both me and my daughter. Janice and I forged a friendship as a result of working together. Her work was always on point and I loved everything she did. She was always available and helpful for any of my needs. I highly recommend Janice for any design project -- no matter how big or small.
Nina & Adrian Sawzcuk - Vinings Residence: New Construction - Entire House Design
My husband and I worked with Janice to design and build our new home on the Chattahoochee. It was our great pleasure to partner with her on our project. Janice is the consummate professional, highly knowledgeable and creative with a keen eye for aesthetics. We trusted Janice's judgment for all our interior and exterior design decisions and selections. It was a pleasure getting to know Janice as both a person and a designer and we enjoyed the time we spent with her. Although we were thrilled to have a lovely house once the project was complete, we missed our frequent interaction with Janice and the fun pursuit of creating just the right tile design or finding the perfect light fixture. You cannot do better than working with Janice Dietz. We recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, organized, detailed and diligent designer who is a pleasure to be around.
Leslie Williamson - VP Marketing Caldwell Banker NRT Development - Gallery Residences Model Homes
I had the pleasure of working with Janice on multiple model homes at the Gallery Residences. I first met Janice when a specific floor plan within the building was having difficultly selling. Janice did a phenomenal job in decorating a model unit and transforming the unit by designing and building out a library space in a small confined room that allowed us to sell out the stack of 15 units in less than 2 months. In addition to multiple models that she designed for us to showcase various floor plans, Janice helped us by delivering rightsizing/downsizing seminars for our prospects. Janice was a pleasure to work with and everything she did was at the highest standard. I recommend Janice for any design project and will use her again for any opportunity I have.
Amy & Mark Bubes - Sandy Springs Residence: Interior Decorating & Kitchen Remodel
I hired Janice to help me and my husband transform my house from a traditional to a more contemporary/transitional style. I looked for a designer who would allow us to incorporate many of our current furnishings and blend them with newly purchased or newly designed pieces. In addition I wanted to work with a designer who was experienced in being able to take on construction related projects in order for us to renovate our kitchen. Janice was a great choice. She worked on our timetable and within our budget for each area. She was on point for where it made sense to spend the money and where we could save. She brought a creative flair and beautiful aesthetic and zoned in on our taste. I thoroughly enjoyed our working relationship and have forged a friendship as a result. I am a huge fan and would highly recommend Janice for any project.
Shayna & Bruce Steinfeld - Briarcliff Residence: Kitchen Renovation & Various Design Projects
My husband and I hired Janice while we were in the middle of a major kitchen renovation. We felt we needed help pulling it all together. Janice was instrumental in taking our design and making key changes and decisions that made the finished product even better than we could have imagined. She stretched the boundaries of our comfort zone while still honoring our eclectic style. She mixed classic elements with colorful and creative ones. Upon completion of the renovation we continued to work with Janice on a number of decorating projects in our house including designing stained glass panels for our front door. Any time we are in need of design help - even if it is just to select paint colors - we call on Janice. We wouldn't turn to anyone else. She is responsive, detailed, talented, and a delight to work with on any size project.
Elida Baverman - Sandy Springs Residence: Master Bathroom & Bedroom Renovation
I hired Janice to assist me with a master bathroom and bedroom renovation. The project included taking down walls and reconfiguring the space.

Everything she did was perfect and individualized for our house and was exactly on point with our taste. We gave Janice the freedom to design the spaces, select what she thought would look best, and although she showed us her ideas and selections for our approval, she did not need to as we fully trusted her taste and judgement. Janice is the most talented designer we have ever worked with and we highly recommend her for any project. She is a joy to work with and we couldn't be happier.

I have worked with Janice both as a builder and a homeowner. I recommend her highly! She has both exquisite taste and sense of value! Would definitely work with her over and over again!
Lisa & Hal Philipson - Buckhead Residence: Remodel & Interior Decorating
We hired Janice to remodel our kitchen in order to give it a more transitional feel. As a result of our successful kitchen transformation, we had Janice do the same for our keeping room, sun porch, laundry room, living room, dining room and powder room. Janice did a wonderful job and as a result our family uses and loves all of these spaces. I thoroughly enjoyed having Janice as my designer and my experience was 100% positive! I plan to continue using Janice on all future projects.
Jamie & Eric Handler - Vinings Residence: Basement Design & Renovation
We hired Janice to design and renovate our basement after it flooded. The basement included a kitchen which we didn't know if we should try and salvage. Janice consulted with us and recommended we gut the kitchen to create a new layout and look. We are so happy she gave us that advise! She designed a new kitchen and incorporated a large island that provides us with amazing space for entertaining with family and friends. We love the beauty and functionality of our new kitchen. In designing the basement, Janice opened up the space by removing some funky soffits and walls. A media space, exercise room, and reading/lounging alcove for our children are all included in the design. Janice led us through the renovation every step of the way: designing the space, material selections, interior decorating, and accessory placement. Her attention to detail, decisiveness, professionalism and project management style made the process move smoothly and easily. Working with Janice was an enjoyable experience. She transformed our basement from an outdated living area to one that is beautiful and is beyond what we had ever imagined. We can't wait for Janice to help us transform the rest of our house!

Steve Craig - Sandy Springs New Construction: Entire House Design & Interior Decorating
I could not recommend Janice Dietz and The Consulting House highly enough. Janice is a joy to work with. Janice always has great ideas, is very timely, and on or under budget. With both the design work and decorating, Janice is phenomenal!
Ellen Macht - Midtown Condo: Interior Decorating
Janice has an easy going manner that puts you at ease but lets you know she is professional with great taste. She listens well and prioritizes the process to minimize her time and yours. She did all the leg work and brought me ideas and samples that were just what I was looking for. When other needs arose, she had a contact list of people to deal with the need. I am so grateful for her time and efforts to make my condo into the home I was looking for.
Sue & Chuck Tilis - Buckhead Residence: Entire House Renovation & Interior Decorating
From day one Janice demonstrated incredible vision for our renovation. She blended the elements of our lifestyle and taste with the natural features of our property and constraints of the existing home to perfectly suit our expectations. This awareness of our desires and ability to both listen and express her point of view were invaluable as the project progressed. Her creativity was most helpful in transforming our views and creating an awesome design. Janice's eye for materials, color, texture, fabrics, wood, tile, stone, lighting, special features and then the selection of furniture and window coverings are truly unique. We are still impressed by the way she combined all these elements into a most tasteful design while always being mindful of the cost. And throughout, we were most appreciative with her accessibility and problem solving when those inevitable snags arose. She took charge and was a team player with our contractor, material providers and subcontractors.
In summary, Janice's technical ability, communication skills and commitment lets us enjoy the beauty of our home from an aesthetic perspective while staying true to our free flowing lifestyle. And, the compliments continue to this day.

Amy Ruda - Sandy Springs Residence: Interior Decorating and Consultation
Working with The Consulting House was truly a pleasure. Janice is extremely creative and knowledgable. Her mix of creativity and her business background truly makes her unique. Not only was she amazing at the design side and bringing us different design options but she was able to guide us in what was appropriate for our home/neighborhood. From that we could decide what we wanted to do for us vs. what we needed to do to keep our house relevant. Her network of suppliers and tradespeople is very deep and she was able to let us know if the estimates we had gotten before working with her were appropriate or overpriced. She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again on other projects in the future.
Janet Tomko - Garden Hills Residence: House Renovation with Kitchen & Baths
We hired Janice to completely redesign our kitchen and re-imagine our space in the rest of the house. We could not be more thrilled with the results - her design is both beautiful and incredibly functional. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and without moving any walls, she managed to get us so much more space! Amazingly, the process was fun - Janice is really easy to work with and very professional. I especially appreciated her ability to identify areas of my project where I could spend a little less on design elements without compromising the overall design.
Lynn & Lewis Redd - Buckhead Residence: Kitchen Renovation
Janice recently helped us with a kitchen renovation. We had originally planned a cosmetic "facelift", but she convinced us to do a completely new kitchen and we are so glad she did! She has outstanding design skills and excellent taste in product choices and colors. She did a fantastic job of maximizing our use of the space we had (for a relatively small kitchen). Janice also has superior project management skills. We would highly recommend her!
