“We are so happy we chose to work with TCI! Traci, Jessie and the entire team are amazing. Their vision, plan and follow through are impeccable. We could not be happier with our house. The first thing people always say when they come over is something in the line of “Wow! Who helped you? This should be in a magazine!” The best part about it though is that it is so comfortable and people feel right at home. We’d work with them again in a heartbeat!”
— Liz, Dallas
“Traci and her staff made the whole design process so easy and painless! She was able to show us exactly what the room would look like before ordering products and the final product turned out even better than we imagined! She updated us each week so we always knew exactly what was going on and what they were working on. Traci and her staff are very professional and have an eye for detail. We could not have asked for a better experience!”
— Shauna, Waco
“Traci and her team managed our entire project-including helping us find a builder. We met every week for an hour to monitor progress, make decisions on pieces and parts, and to discuss problems that had come up during the remodel. When we walked in after remodel, paint furniture, fixtures, door knobs, furniture…every detail was done, we literally cried. I can’t explain how wonderful it is to walk into your home, pour a cup of coffee, and feel like someone designed a house around you and your family. Every detail mattered to us and it mattered to TCI. They found our family, our pets, our extended family in the design, and even our history. I couldn’t be happier with the results and am proud of where I live every time someone walks through the door.”
— Josh, Plano
“Traci Connell Interiors is well worth considering for your home. We just moved to Dallas and decided to completely start a fresh new look with our furniture and style of our new home. Wow was that overwhelming, but with the help of Traci and her team we are absolutely amazed! They did a fabulous job and we are loving our home.”
