What our clients have to say

Our favorite day is when our clients arrive, suitcases in hand and eager to see their apartments, often for the first time.  We joke that our happiest moments are when they cry -- with tears of joy, that is!  We feel so fortunate to work with wonderful clients who have entrusted us to translate their dreams into reality, and have appreciated the time, effort and love that we've poured into the project. Here are some comments from a few of them:

Saint Germain des Pres

We loved our experience with Huff Harrington from start to finish. Renovating an apartment in another country was a bit intimidating, but the communication with their team during the whole process was excellent. They did a great job making our 100 year old  apartment feel fresh and updated while keeping its classic French charm.

After dreaming about an apartment in Paris, Michael and Jackie finally got their dream home.  But the one they found needed a complete renovation: “ Ann immediately saw the potential and suggested turning a small bedroom and living room into one large living/dining area, and swapping the kitchen and bathroom. It was absolutely the right call, and transformed the apartment completely.


“When we arrived to finally live in our new apartment it truly was magic. We were smiling non-stop and saying things like, “Can you really believe this is ours?” The furnishings are impeccable, and the details so well thought-out. We were basically able to move in and begin living here immediately, with nothing else required. It was so much better than we could have hoped for. The team at Huff-Harrington, Ann, Julie and Kiana, did a stellar job!”

“I didn’t even meet Ann or or her team before I hired them  - I could tell by her work she was a true professional, the real deal of design. Clearly she knew France and specifically, beautiful design. 


She was in France and I in  Seattle. I did extensive research on Huff Harrington and reviewed all their posted projects. I was amazed at their creations and her design look was in total alignment with what I was looking for - Paris Perfection. 


I decided I wouldn’t buy an apartment in Paris unless she approved and was willing to work with me. I trusted her completely and she delivered 100%. Working with Ann was simple. Efficient and inspiring. My Apartment is gorgeous… magazine worthy and I am just so in love with her creation. Every inch of my apartment is finished. 


Working with her team was a joy as well. Julie kept me informed the entire time. I was also amazed at the speed in which HH completed this project. Not one delay. As a lawyer and business owner myself, I appreciated Ann’s command of laying out budgets, design proposals, and timelines. Her clear communication was also matched by her kindness. HH is top of the line. 5 star and I would recommend to anyone considering her talents to hire HH now!” 


Palazzo Fossi, Florence

This email came from the lovely home owner after we completed a very complex renovation of their palazzo in Florence andsent her the photos our last photo shoot.  Unfortunately, out of respect for a magazine that would like to publish them, we cannot share the photos but our lovely client agreed to share her comments:

"What utterly beautiful images.  And so fitting … they are warm and loving and inviting in every way.  Art and history flow everywhere!!! The antiquities from the ages mixed with art of the period create a beautiful ebb and flow of life in this space and then specially made for our family that will live there today.  So hard to place our gratitude to words.  It is a pure swatch of timeless beauty — and love. ...The space is everything and it feels just right!  It’s a dream and I still cannot believe I get to spend time here.  It’s a beautiful mix and … it’s home … and so very peaceful and beautiful. 

We won’t ever be able to express our gratitude fully. Anything from the heart can’t really ever be summed up. But our  little Palazzo in Florence exceeds  every hope and dream by leaps and bounds."

Cognacq Jay

Ann Huff was instrumental in finding our incredible Paris apartment, acting as project manager for the complete redesign of the apartment, and acting as interior designer for the apartment.


Ann heard about this apartment, which checked all our boxes, before it officially came to market.  She arranged for us to be the first people to see the apartment, and, with Jennifer from Paris Perfect, strategized with us on how to be the winning bidder, after extreme interest in the apartment.


Ann and the Huff Harrington team immediately set out a plan for renovating the apartment, which had beautiful bones, but had been untouched for over fifty years.  They installed new flooring throughout, chose paint colors, and in conjunction with us chose all furniture.  The kitchen and bathrooms were gut renovated, and a second shower room was cleverly designed behind a closet door.  All work was performed by a group of consummate professionals, supervised closely by the Huff Harrington team.

Rue Saint Dominique

We were introduced to Ann Huff after we purchased an apartment in Paris.  We needed to renovate and not being permanent residents with barely passable French, that was challenging.

Ann gave us several advantages:

  1.  Great design skills - both in room layout, colour and fresh ideas

  2. Local knowledge of GOOD tradesmen.

  3. French language skills, local council and building regulation knowledge.

  4. Ability to take our half baked ideas and turn them into reality!

She gave us a budget…and finished the work in time and within our relatively modest budget.

We are now doing additional work on the kitchen and bathroom….and we are using Ann again .  Says it all!

Thanks Ann!
