A personal testimonial from a happy client is the BEST form of advertising.


What follows are the comments of just a few of my happy clients. Should you wish to speak with any of them personally to lean more about their experience of working with me, I can arrange that for you.  I hope to be able to add your delighted testimonial to my list in the future.

Mark & Pam Gineris, Crete IL

"I want you to know how delighted we are with the utter transformation you accomplished with our home. When we built the house...the real beauty of the house remained unrevealed until you worked your magic on it. Everyone that walks into the house is absolutely wowed! The exterior is somewhat unassuming, but when they walk into the front door, our guests are absolutely blown away. More importantly Elena, we love being in our home now. The minute I walk in, I feel that the house virtually welcomes and embraces me. We could not be more delighted."

Jenny Prangel, Riverside IL

"Elena Zanfei is an amazing designer! She is creative, detail oriented, very professional and a great listener. We had an empty large parlor that she transformed into an elegant, inviting and breathtaking room (no children allowed: - !!!) The room is truly a "work of art" and it exceeded our expectations. We Love it!! She is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her design services."

Larry Cecil, Munster IN
"I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much I loved working with you when we decorated my house. I guess you could tell by the way that I had decorated my house before I met you that I was always a little nervous with paint colors and furniture placement in my home. When we moved into our new place, your ideas about color, window treatments and how to position our furniture (as well as adding and subtracting a few pieces) enhanced our new home in such a positive way that everyone who comes here always asks, "Who did you work with?"...I always respond - "Elena Zanfei of ion Interiors". You can work magic! Can't wait until we can work together again!!"


Ted Strojny, Munster IN
"I relied on Elena's background and professional experience, to make my project unique and gave it the WOW factor !.  Elena's attention to detail was incredible.  Everyone who visits my home, comments on the quality, and selection of materials chosen.  I will be recommending Ion Interiors to my friends, and associates with no hesitation.  Outstanding Job !! "


Vesna Radjenovich, Munster IN
"Working with Elena has been a positive and inspiring experience. Elena displays a passion for her work and takes pride in providing quality service. Whether you are a novice or have some experience with decorating, Elena puts you at ease and respects your ideas and inputs. She has been patient with me and never rushes my decisions. She naturally knows when a decision needs to feel right for the house and its owners. I appreciate everything she has done to make decorating my house a delightful experience. I look forward to continuing our professional and personal relationship."


Lisa & Jim Blair, Homer Glen IL
"Talk about someone coming to your rescue in a time of need…I never dreamed that "Victorian" could meet "Bachelor Pad"! Elena is amazing. Throughout the process she made sure she was creating living space that both of us feel comfortable in. I still can’t get over the sheer talent of being able to blend two completely different household styles. And, she not only brings her talent to the table, she brings such energy and enthusiasm. She’s a pleasure to work with and has helped make our house our perfect dream home."

Tom Vespa, Munster IN
"Having a great sense of style was what made me choose Elena over the competition. She completely transformed my home. From selecting the perfect color palette, all the way down to the last accessory, everything was beyond perfect. So glad I chose Elena. I love being at my home. Highly recommend!"

Megan Gineris, Homewood IL
"Having Elena help me with my home was the best decision I could have made. I could never have come up with some many great and fresh ideas and now when I walk into my home it feels absolutely great being there. Thanks so much for your great suggestions and work."

Shari Clark, Crete IL
"I couldn't believe it!! Elena walked through our house and immediately knew what needed to go and what needed to be changed. It was a little difficult for me to allow my house to be 'un-decorated' so that it would loose that personalized feel and allow prospective buyers to visualize their things in the home, but it sure worked!!. Our house sold to the 2nd family that walked through it on the 1st day it was on the market. Thanks Elena!!"

Tom Vespa, Legacy Group, Munster IN
"Elena's vision for our model completely surpassed our expectations. Working with her was a pleasure from beginning to end. The personal attention to detail was fantastic. Everyone that came through the model gave rave reviews. Thank you, Elena"
