"Betsy is fantastic! She helped us decorate every room in our house - from the paint and fabric to furniture layout and upholstery. We get so many compliments on our house and Betsy is our not-so-secret weapon. She has a great eye and is skilled in both the creative side and the little details of the project. She is responsive, fun to work with and very good at understanding the particular style of each of her clients. I loved working with her and I only wish I had more rooms to decorate!"
STEPHANIE PRICE, WELLESLEY, MA
"I wish that I could give Betsy more than 5 stars as she deserves every one of them and more!
You will not find a more skilled, talented, resourceful interior designer who brings great energy as she goes to all lengths required to ensure that the final results exceed your highest expectations!
With Betsy Powers, you will have an opportunity to work with a wonderful, incredibly thoughtful person who is not only a great listener (and seemingly has the ability to solve all problems! :)) but who will also represent your interests to the best extent possible with contractors and vendors involved in your project.
I could not recommend Betsy more highly, noting that you will be lucky to have her - both the person and the professional - in your corner, creating a beautiful environment for you and your family!"
Sarah Garrity, Rye, NY
"Betsy has a phenomenal ear and eye! She hears what it is you like and are looking for, then has the visual memory to make multiple suggestions to give you various options. Perhaps her greatest strength is with color. She has a pitch-perfect memory... is able to know which of the hundreds of rug samples are right for the colors you have... or simply... which color swatches - paint, fabric - will work with the look you are going for. And she will save you money in the process... Finding discounts or going high-end... she can do it in either direction!"

The following quotations are from an article by Louise Kennedy about Betsy Powers' home, titled "Rehab, Redecorate, Relocate" in the Boston Sunday Globe Magazine:
"Now those dirty-vanilla walls are painted in enough rich colors to stock a whole ice cream shop. Powers is particularly proud of the hydrangea blue she mixed herself for the master bedroom, but the whole palette is just as striking, at once serene and strong."
"As for the furnishings, she mixes old pieces with new, always with an eye toward comfort and harmony. A chair in the living room, a rustic $45 flea market find is reupholstered in a luxurious fabric; instead of heavy, traditional draperies, the windows get airy, even whimsical treatments with colorful trims."
Louise Kennedy, Staff Writer, The Boston Globe
"Creative and professional--that is how I would describe Betsy Powers. Betsy has great ideas that she executes into a beautiful product. She also draws upon a breadth of design styles from classic to modern. And, Betsy is resourceful--finding that perfect fabric at the right price!
Betsy is very responsive and detail-oriented. She is a great communicator, listens to her client's needs, and delivers in a timely manner. I would recommend Betsy without reservation."
Susan Walker White, Wellesley, MA
"We first worked with Betsy on selecting window treatments and paint colors last year. The advice and direction she provided was so valuable that we asked for her help again when we recently remodeled our kitchen. Betsy added great perspective and creativity to our plans, while always listening carefully and patiently to our ideas and helping us articulate what we wanted—which we discovered was not always easy. She then got to work to help us find the perfect materials for our job (tile, stone, light fixtures, hardware, counter stools, paint and floor stain). We are thrilled with the results . We thoroughly appreciated Betsy's work and will absolutely seek her assistance with future projects."
Virginia Ferko, Wellesley, MA
"I cannot imagine how Betsy could be more helpful, more professional, or more discriminating. She provides expert advice on the smallest and largest of decisions, always offering guidance in a manner that is genuinely helpful without being overbearing or condescending. I have worked with several other designers in the past and am so pleased that a friend recommended Betsy before we began a major home renovation and construction project. She is a gem in every sense of the word!"
Candace Sutcliffe, Wellesley, MA
"Betsy has done a tremendous job decorating my offices and home! I feel extremely comfortable recommending her to my clients. She creates a warm, inviting, and attractive atmosphere to her rehab projects. My staff and I have found a number of fixer-uppers for the Powers family over the past 10 years. Using her visual abilities, design ideas, and rehabbing experience, Betsy has worked her magic on these properties. She is easy to work with and enjoys both large and small scale jobs."
Gail Lockberg, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Wellesley, MA
"From our first small project we did together to decorating our entire house, Betsy brings an ability to listen and her creative design sense to all that she does. She makes design and decorating recommendations based on on real families live. From design consultation to selecting colors, fabrics, and furniture, she does it all with an easy-going interpersonal style that makes you both comfortable and confident and the end results speak for themselves!"
Janet Anderson, Wellesley, MA
"Betsy is so easy to work with! Sometimes I have an idea, Betsy takes my thoughts, adds to or improves on them, and comes back with all we need to make a room work. Betsy takes her customer's wishes then adds her unique twist to make a room sing. I love that she listens to me!"
Kathy Kelley, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Wellesley, MA
"I have worked with Betsy for several years and her creative interior design talents allow her to transform any room to the unique desires of each individual customer. Betsy is an absolute pleasure to work with and she is the consumate professional with a true passion for her work."
Bill Murphy, Budget Blinds, Wellesley MA
"Betsy is such a pleasure to work with--she separates herself from others with a true sense of patience and charisma!"
James Motta, The Martin Group, Boston Design Center
I have worked with Betsy for over 10 years. In our industry, she is top notch. Her "can-do" attitude shows right from the start. She has the ability to work within many different styles, and many budget ranges.
Amy Curtis, Curtis Custom Drapery
"I am not much a risk taker when it comes to decorating decisions. Betsy has a great way of giving options so that what I thought I wanted was sometimes the way I went--but sometimes not. She is respectful of my tastes but gives me fresh ideas to go in a newer direction once in a while. She also has a really low-key demeanor--just what I needed when things got crazy between house project, kids, job etc. I really liked her calmness and she is just a great person to know and work with."
