“Debbie is the most organized person I’ve met. When you are tackling a remodel or a new home project, having someone like Debbie at your side every step of the way is a HUGE benefit. Debbie gets to know her clients – their tastes, their budget, and their quirks! And she blends it all together to come up with wonderful results! No matter which house she worked on, we always get comments from professionals in real estate, architecture or design. Debbie knows her craft and she knows how to turn a house into a home that reflects you and your family. If you can get her — get her!”
Carol Schrader

“I highly recommend Debra for any kind of interior decoration, design or remodel work. She is a fantastic designer. I have used her for all my remodels and are extremely happy with the results. She uses only the best subcontractors to do her redesigns. Debra is creative, consistent, reliable and produces excellent results. We will continue to use her excellent services in the future.”
Lars Severin

“I have worked with Debra many times because each outcome has been wonderful. She knows how to listen to her client and immediately couples her creativity and knowledge with your vision and limitations. She quickly melds your wish list and her experience to use time efficiently…and her attention to detail and follow up on each item is invaluable.”
Janet Monfredini

“Debra did a wonderful job assisting us with our Interior Design work for our luxury home. She did a great job of helping us pick materials, colors and furniture to compliment our space. We have recommended her to several of our friends and they have all been very happy with their experiences.”
Vik Patel

“We have used Debbie at our last two homes. She has consistently performed excellent work, listened to our concerns and come up with creative ideas that reflect us. Our projects have included drapes and decorating items to a full kitchen and bath remodel. Her work associates are reliable, clean and trustworthy. I know when we hire Debbie the job is going to be fabulous and provide a wow factor.”
Amy Consul

“We hired Debra as we were concerned about getting the right colors (both interior and exterior) to match the high end home we built. She was a big help and very patient with us as we stumbled through our own ideas.”
Marty Lefton

“Debra is an amazing interior designer. She helped decorate our first house, she helped us do a remodel of a beach home with design and decor and she helped us build a home. She is a pleasure to work with and has great sense of style and design. I would give her and her work the highest recommendation.”
Maria Fazio

“You will simply LOVE Debra. She is a beautiful lady with a great sense of style and kindness. When I had to sell my home and move to a small condo I felt a little sad but she transformed the house into a real home and now I love every room. It is so well coordinated and tasteful down to the smallest detail. She made all the difference!! It was a lucky day when I found her–I know I couldn’t find anyone better! ”
Barb Ballou

“We contracted with Debra Kay George Interiors to completely remodel our downstairs including a beautiful new kitchen.  A few years later she designed a beautiful new master suite and bathroom by incorporating an unused bedroom as well as enlarging our hall bathroom and completely remodeling it to make it more useable for our two daughters.  Debra also designed a face lift for the exterior of our home including reconstruction of our upstairs balcony using wrought iron bars instead of wood.  People still knock on our door to ask for the paint color and name of our designer.”
Sondra Gill

“Debra is an amazing designer to help you with whatever your needs are…be it a complete remodel, a room remodel or just an update. She can figure out what YOU are looking for and help you achieve your dreams. She has saved us lots of money and many headaches just because we asked for help. She is very professional and kind. I would recommend her to anyone who is doing home improvements. She is truly awesome.”
Michelle Nelson

“I have used 3 designers in the 15 years I have lived in my home. None of them were as capable, flexible, smart, fun, and creative as Debra! I have been thrilled with every suggestion she has made. We finally live in the house we have always dreamed of!”        
Lori Yurtin

“Debra helped me out with new drapery in my living room and dining room. She brought the perfect fabric on the first meeting! She’s great to work with. I highly recommend her. ”        
Karin Flynn

“Debra George Ryan is a brilliant Interior Designer. I wouldn’t dream of doing a home without her by my side to guide me every step of the way! She has designed 4 of my personal residences and I look forward to the opportunity to do more projects with her. Working with her is always a pleasure.”
Cindy Nijmeh

“Debra is a top rate designer that can help you create exactly what YOU have in mind…no matter what space you are starting with! I have known Debra for many years as she helped us with our very first home when all we had to work with was old college furniture. Three houses later, she is still the first person I turn to for all design help, big or small. She has excellent taste in anything she helps to create and she makes sure it is not about what she likes but what you want. Her expertise in design allows her to hear what the customer wants and then help to create it …whether it is a simple “refresher”, new purchases of any sort, or a full scale remodel. Anyone who needs any help with decorating/designing will be so thankful they contacted Debra.”
Barbara Asplund

“Debra has so much talent in her field. She is the only interior designer I will use going forward. I have now worked with her on a small project in helping me sell one of my homes…and shortly she will be working on the designs for four new custom homes we are developing. Debra George Ryan is upbeat, creative, smart and so willing to go that extra distance to make everything perfect. In addition to all of this, Debra is a quality person with a great sense of community and social responsibility. I am happy to call Debra not only my designer but also my friend! Thank you for helping me out so much, Debra!”
Jill Amen

“Debra has helped us with 2 homes and I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking for a designer that listens to what YOU want. – From the simplest details, such as picking out a paint color for a room, to designing a complete room addition/remodel and coordinating with various tradespeople; she is wonderful to work with. Not only do I love the work she has done for me, but our friends and family always try to compliment me on how wonderful my home looks. I’m quick to say, “It’s not me, call Debra Kay George Interiors.”
Karen Kerth

“Highly recommend Debra George Interiors! Debbie is easy so easy to work with. She has great design knowledge, a good eye for detail and colors. We are so pleased with the work she has done for us to date… and will be continuing to call on her for projects on the horizon. I have a busy home with teens and pets…and she created a homey comfortable environment that looks beautiful!”
Carey Lisowski

“DKG Interiors has an extraordinary portfolio.  So grand, I almost didn’t want to enlist Debra’s services as my project was so small. I recently moved from a single level, ranch style home in the Cambrian Park area of San Jose to a three story town home in downtown San Jose.  I have been paralyzed with arranging my furniture from multiple rooms to an open floorplan.  I felt everything was very disjointed. So, I hired Debra to help me rearrange my furniture and decor as well as select an accent wall paint color to pull everything together. She arrived promptly with uddles of energy.  She spent about an hour rearranging my furniture and decor.  She ended her visit by recommending the perfect paint color as well as suggestions about final touches needed to pull the entire space together. I am extremely impressed with her level of expertise.  She has beautiful taste but understands the importance of maintaining the integrity of items that hold priceless memories.  Thank you Debra for all you did to make my house a home!”
Suzanne McIntosh

“I hired Debra Kay George Interiors to help with a large home remodel. I originally thought I could do it on my own but was soon overwhelmed with all the decisions. I originally hired her just to help me with furniture purchases and room layout but she ending up helping us with almost all the design aspects of the project such as paint colors, cabinet finish and granite and fixture choices. She knows a lot of excellent sources was always very professional and most of all patient with my constant indecision. She was a pleasure to work with and I am so glad I decided to use her services.”
Karla Wilkinson

“I have worked with Debra on several projects over several years, from the redesign of my kitchen to decorating there rooms and choosing colors for the walls.  She has a great eye, is very prompt with getting back to you and I have been very happy with the way everything came out. Several of my friends reached out to her after they saw my house. I like the fact that she has the ability to figure out what you like, and then selects and works according to your taste with her input as to what she feels would look best. I highly recommend her.”
Suniti Thapar

Debra can transform any room into a spectacular room! She can help with kitchen and bath design, room layouts, furniture selections, accessorizing, or anything else you may need to transform a room. She’s very nice to work with too! I used Debra to redesign a master bath as well as spruce up my living and dining rooms. She also helped me  transform an ugly fireplace, update my stair railing and fluorescent lighting in my kitchen”
