I didn't have many ideas about what I wanted for my master bath but in an hour Tara showed me examples of many different things I could go with and intuited many design elements based on the few things I chose. I LOVED working with her. She was quick, professional, and extremely knowledgeable.Read More

Words cannot describe how much I appreciate amd envy Tara and her talent. She helped me in Charlotte to stage my home and easily added the extra 10k over asking price to the sale. Then I decided to build a home in my new city of Nashville, TN and she helped me pick all my finishings over FaceTime. When we got to the outside of my home I just handed the phone over because I was so overwhelmed and trusted her taste so much. Once I moved in she traveled here and we shopped, hung stuff and put all the finishing touches on my house in 24 hours! She is reasonable in her prices (in my mind she is worth a mountain of gold) and such fun to work with too!Read More

My wife and I can't begin to explain how grateful we are to Tara for her work. We knew it was the right fit immediately when she described her vision for the space and it matched our preferences perfectly. I don't know how she combined my rustic esthetic with my wife's modern preference, but it totally worked and we're both so happy about it. Tara is awesome and we couldn't be happier about having had her transform our home. Plus, she's such a cool person and has the cutest little girl. Read More

Tara had a grasp of our needs, wishes, and tastes from the get-go. She did a fabulous job creating something that is not only functional but beautiful for our family. She is a joy to work with and transformed dull spaces with potential into a magazine-worthy home. Thank you, Curate by Tara!Read More

Tara helped us plan and manage the renovation of our home after we purchased it out of foreclosure. It was a BIG job, and she was critical to its success from Day One. We learned a lot from Tara's extensive experience in remodeling, and we still consult with her today before making any decorating decisions in our home! I highly recommend Tara for all your renovating, decorating and home staging needs!Read More

As a Realtor in a very competitive Charlotte real estate market I don't make it a habit to share the :"secret weapons" who help drive parts of my business and its growth, but Tara at Curate by Tara has wowed me so much and I have gotten so much great feedback on the work she has done on my Commonwealth listing that it would not be fair if I didn't give her the credit she deservers on a job well done. All agents love listings and with Tara to stage mine I am even more motivated to get more so I can see her at work again!Read More

Someday, Tara will redesign my kitchen, but until then I rely on her to help me with big decisions like flooring choices, wall covering suggestions and contractor recommendations. I genuinely respect her option and her aesthetics. She is also a delightful person and EXCELLENT at keeping you calm when you are nervous or stressed. You will not regret hiring her, and the compliments you receive on her work will reassure you time and again that you were smart to have done it.Read More

Tara was recommended to us by our builder. We were reluctant to spend any additional funds on design, but with our vastly different styles and with so many options out there, we felt it would be a good idea. Tara took all of our ideas and preferences and came up with design boards that now define our nearly completed custom home. She was responsive to inquiries at all hours, day or night, weekend or holidays. She was a mediator between me, my husband, and the builder on many occasions. She made adjustments as needed when there were problems with our builder. She was an excellent resource for us in so many areas. I would use her again and again...and would recommend her services to anyone that is building or remodeling a home. We are very happy with the end result!Read More

I cannot possibly convey my gratitude for Tara in helping my house feel like a Home. Tara took my vague ideas and translated them into Perfect For Me concepts that fit like a dream- it felt like she could read my mind! Tara worked within my budget and my timeframe, and was super responsive to my questions, requests and needs throughout the process. She went way above and beyond, and is an absolute pro. I recommend her to all of my friends who are moving into a new space, or want help creating something different within their existing space. Tara transformed my space into a beautiful, peaceful sanctuary that I am happy and thankful to come home to.Read More

Tara is great to work with. She consolidates all the selections for a clean, organized project. Her designs are customer focused and she is able to work with any budget and style.Read More
