“We are a Destin local custom home builder and have been a customer of Sugar Beach Interiors for many years, using their services to furnish our model homes as well as our personal homes. Most recently they furnished our grown son’s and daughter’s first home purchases. Both homes turned out absolutely stunning and our kids are thrilled! Sugar Beach offers quality furnishings and accessories, competitive prices, and knowledge in their trade that really helped us pull the spaces into "the look" we were after. Best advice; Never go it alone, always use a professional decorator. You will be amazed at the difference it will make. Promise!”

Her knowledge and expertise were invaluable. The house looks fantastic thanks to Janet's ability to put together colors and textures. Her help with furniture selection and overall interior design allowed the final design to truly represent my personal style. I’m very fortunate to have found her! ”

“Janet helped us furnish two rental condos on the beach. She understood our requirements and listened to our likes and dislikes and was able to furnish both projects in a very short amount of time and on budget. Working with Janet has been a very pleasant experience.”

“Janet helped me furnish a three-story house on Scenic Highway 30A in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. I am from Mississippi, so what I needed for the beach was totally different from what we have at home. She had access to the most wonderful, perfect furniture for the beach. We found a great deal of it in the store, but we had to order a great deal of it also. When it arrived, it was even better than I had hoped for. Her delightful personality and excellent taste made it extremely easy to work with her. She selected and ordered some pieces that had a wow factor that would knock your socks off!”

“I have just finished my second project with Karen Waterfield with Sugar Beach Interiors. Karen has such talent as an interior designer and so easy to work with. She listens to you and is very considerate of what your vision is for your home but, also, is there to guide you with suggestion and to keep you on budget. The showroom has beautiful furniture and accessories but you are not limited to what is on the floor. She reps all the high-end furniture companies and fabrics. Her staff and designers are always eager to help you with any concerns and questions you may have. I highly recommend her and Sugar Beach Interiors.”

“There are many choices of interior decorators in the Miramar Beach/Destin area. Choosing Karen Waterfield and Sugar Beach Interiors was easy, affordable, and the best decision my husband and I made when we were building our new home. Her suggestions on fabric and wall colors were exactly what I was looking for, as well as her finishing touches on general decorating were perfect. From measuring the floor plan to delivering the furniture and hanging drapes and art, she made sure that every detail was properly installed. We are extremely happy with our new home. Many thanks to Karen and her staff at Sugar Beach Interiors.”
