New Home Design/Furnish & Decorate
We live in Colorado Springs, and built a new home between 2015 and 2016. We had a general contractor, but were looking for someone who understood our style to help us select all of our finishes. We could not seem to find a local designer who matched our taste, so we discovered Hallie after looking at her portfolio and reading her reviews on this website. We are so glad we chose her!
Hallie helped us select everything from tile, flooring, lighting, paint color, appliances, fixtures, you name it. She even redrew some of the design plans in the kitchen, front entry, and master bed to make the space more intuitive and livable. My husband and I have somewhat different tastes (his, more masculine and contemporary, mine, a little softer and more transitional), but Hallie was able to blend them together in a way that made perfect sense. Her selections were thoughtful and tailored to what we liked, because she really listened to what we said we were looking for and how we wanted to feel in our space. She was very patient when we were stuck in indecision, and was always ready with a suggestion or option when we didn't know where to start.
Hallie was flexible in her schedule, which was great considering she is in the Denver area and we are in the Springs. We mostly met her in Denver, but that was because the selections were better than in the Springs. She was always available by email and phone, and I don't think she ever took more than 24 hours to respond to a message.
After we finished our house in late 2016/early 2017, we realized we needed someone to help us furnish and decorate! We just finished doing the upstairs of our home in October, 2017, and will be contacting 328 Design Group when we are ready to start work on the downstairs and outdoor area.
Working with Michelle on the interior design was so fun and easy. This woman was MADE to decorate homes. It really is an art form for her! She helped us with furniture, bedding, art and accents, and she did an amazing job. Everything she chose is so unique; she even brought back some pillows from Turkey just for us! Michelle was so responsive to questions and concerns, and has the patience of a saint. Like Hallie, she tailored her suggestions and choices to specific things we said about wanting a home that is beautiful, comfortable and animal friendly!
I cannot say enough about these two wonderful women!

If you are looking for a consummate professional who will produce outstanding results, you will want to hire Hallie Veith from 328 Design Group. She is a creative, innovative and talented designer who managed our kitchen remodel project from beginning to end. Hallie delivered a wonderful new kitchen that continues to receive rave reviews from our friends for its layout, look and functionality.
After meeting with us and listening to what we wanted to accomplish, Hallie took our list of requirements and created 3 outstanding design options that met our desire to remove walls and integrate a formal dining room and kitchen area into one functional, flowing space. All of the design options, which were well thought out and innovative, transformed these two areas into a beautiful kitchen that functions and provides the warm, inviting environment we wanted.
Additionally, Hallie delivered this kitchen remodel on time (i.e., it was completed prior to Thanksgiving), despite the other projects she was leading and under budget. In fact, well under our max budget that we discussed with her during our first meeting. What more could you ask for? She was there every step of the way, communicating with us and keeping us informed on the progress. What we valued most was that Hallie was extremely responsive and never too busy to answer our questions. Hallie provided tremendous guidance throughout the 8 weeks.
We have been in our new kitchen almost six months now. We love it and really enjoy having family and friends over to share it with us. Simply put, Nancy and I would not change a thing.
Let me leave you with this thought which we share with everyone who asks about our project - Of all the decisions we made prior to and during this remodel, the most important one that provided the biggest return on our investment was to hire Hallie Veith from 328 Design Group to lead the project.

Working with 328 Design was one of the best decisions we made after we purchased our home that was built in 1986. We had an idea of what we wanted but had no idea where to start.
The first time we met with Hallie she did a lot of listening. We were taking the basement down to the studs and completely redesigning the 1400SF area which includes a bathroom, bedroom, study, game room, bar, and entertainment area. We gutted the kitchen and turned the pantry and laundry room into one 12'x12' all purpose office, laundry, pantry, and sewing room.
Hallie worked with us on all aspects of this project. She drew the designs, helped find quality contractors, helped pick out the countertops, tile, fixtures, carpet, paint colors, etc. Hallie was there for every decision that we wanted help with. She was patient with us when we were indecisive and thoughtful when helping us make decisions that would fit our style. She made a timeline and made sure that it was followed. She said the project would be done in three and a half months and it was.
Hallie was extremely professional and helped us to make this house our home. We cannot say enough about how amazing this experience was. We know that we would not have had such a positive experience if we had not chosen 328 Design.

Hallie did our kitchen remodel which was basically gutting it and starting over. We changed the configuration of the kitchen by moving appliances, changing the lighting and pulling natural gas. We could not have managed the timing with all the subcontractors involved by ourselves. Along with her excellent project management skills she has A LOT of technical knowledge in all aspects of construction. This was very helpful when working with all of the subcontractors to keep them on task and delivering exactly what we wanted. She was essential to making this all happen!! She is so much more than just a 'designer'!! She is the WHOLE package.

I highly recommend Hallie Veith from 328 Design. I found her on Angie's List and I could not be happier. She is professional, smart, resourceful, patient, hard working and produces beautiful results. She designed and managed a large kitchen remodel for me that involved removing several load-bearing walls and installing beams. She came up with 4 good project design options, and helped me refine one to just the right approach. Then she prepared a project budget, got bids from good contractors that she had relationships with, scheduled and supervised the work, and guided me through selections for important finishes like light fixtures, paint, countertops, etc. She always responded quickly to both me and to her various contractors. She kept us all on schedule and I could not be happier with the finished product. Cannot recommend her highly enough.
