Galvin & Rode Design

My entire family thanks you for undertaking our Malibu Beach Home COMPLETE MAKEOVER. You both were exceptionally creative and talented as a joy to work with.
Your guidance made our home warm and inviting to all of our family and many friends who always comment how the changes have made our Beach Home so attractive “like those admired in Designer Magazines.” We were so pleased with your designs and taste that we relied on you both with complete trust and therefore expanded our original remodeling project.

“I think one of the best things of all has been your fertile imaginations. You both have such a gift for reading people and their needs, and I’m sure our house wouldn’t have turned out so well if it hadn’t been for your ability to listen to and accommodate the people you work with. You have been such joy to work with and play with, but most of all, because of your interest in our visions for our home and your kindness and considerations, we are so happy to include you now as two friends. You took something that could have been a nightmare and turned it into something very special.”

“Bob and I wish to express our deep gratitude for your excellent guidance and assistance with the interior design of our new home. It has been an extremely enjoyable experience to work with both of you. We have greatly valued your unique and creative design ideas, your willingness to collaborate with us during every step of the design process, and your professionalism in all communication with us. When we first moved into our new home, we were faced with an empty shell of white walls. We immediately felt at ease and reassured in knowing we would soon have the interior design of our dreams. Our home, with your hard work, has now been transformed into an inviting, warm, and sophisticated environment.”

“It has been exceptionally gratifying to work with both if you for the last six years. Your integrity and attitude of excellence allowed me to enjoy the remodeling process. Your creative genius and ability to discover what is needed never misses. Your tradespeople and workrooms have delivered beautiful results. I would not have imagined HGTV’s Designers’ Challenge show would bring your wonderful talents and dedicated spirits into my life. You’ve helped me discover my personal style. Our second renovation project together of our new home is almost completed. Again, the result is more than we could have ever dreamed. You’ve shown the ability to listen to requests and translate them into a warm and elegant design for our homes.”

“We think we now have the most beautiful and classiest bathroom, we have ever seen!! The green, mixed stone and glass tile design, lighting, wood cabinets, are so tasteful and appealing, that we can’t stop looking at it. You listened to our needs and asked us questions even we did not think to ask or consider. The bathroom was designed perfectly to fit our lifestyle. Thank you for being on top of everything every step of the way. You both are a pleasure to do business with.”
— Anne and Len Kupfer

What an incredible space you designed for Ryder Communications Group. I love seeing people react when they first walk into our offices. It’s always WOW! Then we get a barrage of questions about the colors you used, the unique lighting, the cityscape shaped windows, flooring materials, window treatments and the unique carpet design and all the curves. Our work at RCG is about creativity and you made this space exude it. I can’t thank you enough for all the extra attention you gave the project and the way you treated us. We experienced what it is to really be taken care of. I can’t wait for our next project together.
