I am happy to give my highest recommendation to Tea. She is a joy to work with .Her creativity helped us plan an upcoming move from a traditional colonial house with four bedrooms to a 1300 sq. ft. apartment. She also knows excellent workmen and great sources for materials. This was of tremendous help in remediating problems from a damp basement.


Tea was able to strike the perfect balance between great functionality, style and cost for a downtown New Haven office location we recently moved into. I would highly recommend Tea to any client who wants to have some input but also needs the expertise of a professional to pull all of the moving parts together. Thanks, as always, for your help.

Tea Canna was a terrific guide and resource for many aspects of a top-to-bottom home renovation in Connecticut. She offers stylish design that is also functional and affordable. Her suggestion to install remote-controlled windown treatments for my master bedroom and bath, where some windows were hard to reach, has made life so much easier and I love the elegant shades she helped me pick out. I work from home, so my home office is very important to me. Tea designed a fabulous and highly practical built-in filing and shelving system that I treasure as all my books and papers are well-organized. Tea also has a great eye for detail. Her design for my silver glass-tiled kitchen backsplash catches the eye of everyone who walks into the room. She brought interest to my guest baths, again with her talent for layout and pattern, by creating beautiful floors with marble and limestone tiles. Tea's relationships with craftsmen and fabricators is also a great benefit for her clients. I would use Tea again on any new design project. Her ability to come up with a variety of great design options, while always keeping my budget in mind, is a rare quality among designers. Tea is also very easy to talk to and brainstorm ideas with. You quickly realize you are working with someone receptive to your needs and desires for your home who will always come up with a great idea for you.

Working with Tea at Creative Design Solutions has been such a great experience. Her ability to come up with beautiful designs and ideas to help keep me within budget have been invaluable. Even though my major renovation was done 4+ years ago, I continue to call on Tea for advice and suggestions on smaller projects. She has so much energy, talent, ideas and resources. Loved (and continue to love) working with her.

Tea of Creative Design Solutions staged and decorated a model home in Milford for us. This is in a new Condominium complex of twelve free-standing cottage style units. When she was finished we held our first open house, received over fifty customers and sold half the project out in thirty days. I feel that Tea has played a big part in our success. Tea is always very responsive and a joy to work with. I am looking forward to our next project together.

Tea was an absolute god send and a pleasure to work with as I completed a more or less full gut job and renovation on a townhome in Stamford, CT. Everything about the experience was a home run. She did a phenomenal job managing my budget (and me), getting to know my tastes and preferences, managing the sub-contractors and bringing EVERYTHING together including pillows and my Christmas Tree.

I really liked her a la carte approach to things that allowed me to manage certain aspects of the project directly (where I had time or interest) all while making sure everything came together.

Although my house is in lower Fairfield county, Tea leveraged relationships with vendors (especially for my kitchen and bathroom) a little bit outside of my area to cut down on the costs.

Whether you require major design and or construction or simply a good eye with accessories, furniture, painting, Tea is a ONE STOP SHOP.

We are already talking about things we are going to do in my "next house" together! The feedback I've received on the end product from neighbors, friends and my realtor has been unbelievable!
