It's Just Really Classy

Customer reference for Nine Yards Design as told to pickapro by Stella Zheleznyak from Rouge Beauty Salon, Ranelagh, Dublin 6 on 27-Sep-2016

When was the work done?
Three or four months ago, May/June 2016.

What was involved?
I have a beauty salon and I asked Yvonne to do the downstairs. I've an entrance and a little corridor and a sign outside – just to kind of redo the whole outside area. We're not really visible as such, we're on the corner, a bit hidden, and I suppose people couldn't really see us.

How did you choose Nine Yards Design?
Well, Yvonne's a client of mine. I just thought that she's a very confident person and I trusted her straightaway. I knew I needed to do something and I kept postponing it and she thought I'd benefit from it. We've got a really nice upstairs, and when she came in for the first time she thought everything was really nice. She asked who did it, and we did it ourselves, and downstairs was okayish and I knew it. And I suppose I did want a bit of help and she just struck me as a really nice confident person who could do it for me.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Yvonne Mulligan?
No, I had no idea, but I guess because we had everything done upstairs she said she would try to match it. But I had no idea for outside.

Did Yvonne introduce new ideas?
She gave me a couple of options and said okay, this is what I have in mind, and I loved it, absolutely. And we kept working forward basically. She was really, really great.

How did the project run?
I had nothing to do with it. Sunday and Monday, we're closed, and she was in with her people and would do such and such. We would come in the following day and it was all clean, there was no mess. She project-managed it, I didn't need to come in; they did everything without me being there.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Nine Yards Design?
Definitely the style Yvonne came up with. Every client who comes in, it has a wow factor. Every single person comments, which is what I wanted. So we do attract so many clients now. People come in and ask are you new here. We're in Ranelagh, we've been there for six years. Our door wasn't particularly attractive. It's amazing how it has changed now.

What's your favourite part now?
We have a canopy above our front door, which we didn't have up before, which really strikes people from outside. We have a magnificent entrance door now. Everybody comments on it as soon as they come now, the door is amazing. I would never have chosen this, I would probably have painted it. We get a completely different door now. It's just really classy.

Would you recommend Nine Yards Design to others?
Oh, absolutely, no doubt. My clients are asking and I would give her phone number now. They saw the before and after.

I absolutely loved working with Yvonne, she's bubbly, she knows her stuff – I loved it! Every day I come into my place and I think Wow, I've beautiful chandeliers, they're different. Everything is just spot on.

Any tips for other people?
Well the amount of clients we gained from this, from when I did the renovation – it will improve their business bigtime. When clients come in and see the quality and nice design, I guess they do want to go and spend their money there because they know they'll receive quality treatment or quality products or whatever.
