Donna is an extremely talented designer. She has worked on two projects for us. One was our Newton home , which happens to be very modern. The other was our vacation home in Nantucket, which has a completely different feel.. Donna was able to execute beautiful designs for both- very specific, yet very different projects. Since my husband and I both work very long hours, our time is very limited. Donna made sure that she maximized every moment we were together. She pushed us to limits that we were unsure of, yet the end result was so much more beautiful than we ever could have imagined. It takes an extraordinarily dynamic experienced and confident designer to do the work that Donna achieves. She came in under budget and on time. I recommend Donna to the highest extent.

Donna has a true talent for pulling rooms and homes together. I have hired Donna for many projects, big and small. From paint color to tile and carpet decisions to furnishing a home. Donna has a gift for listening to her clients and satisfying the needs of each individual's own taste. I have referred many friends and as a real estate broker, many clients to Donna . All have been completely thrilled with their projects. I would never make a decorating decision without Donna!
I had just purchased a new condo in Coolidge Corner. I had two new rooms and my living room furniture looked all wrong. Donna and I shopped so she could get a feel for what appealed to me and once I realized that I liked what she picked out better then anything I could ever select, I knew that I was going to love the finished product. She measured my rooms and taught me about the right proportions. She suggested paint colors, area rugs, furniture, lighting, window treatments and accessories. Donna worked within my budget and re-purposed existing items to help complete my space creating a home I love.
Donna Hochman, of Distinctive Interiors, is a continual source of inspiration, direction, energy, style and expertise. Over this past year, Donna has helped us throughout our home renovation. Her involvement has ranged from space/flow tips, furniture selection and placement, paint and other décor colors, window treatments, lighting, and all aspects of kitchen and bathrooms. During each stage of the project, Donna listened and was able to provide recommendations aligned with my personal taste and design preferences. An added value is Donna’s ability to infuse the project with ideas that I would not have considered on my own, adding sophistication and freshness yet never compromising my vision. Donna has an eye for detail, is savvy regarding style and sources, and is efficient working with other professionals involved in the project. Most importantly, Donna makes design fun and the end result is perfection!
