About

Daryl developed a solid sense of design studying art and architecture in school, and she took every creative job she could get!  She worked for an architect and a caterer  in high school, an interior designer and an artist in college, then directed a gallery, started her own jewelry buiness, managed a florist, excelled in design at Ethan Allen and eventually founded Design Results.

She grew up in New York and Connecticut and graduated from Columbia University. Because she loves travel, she has been to more countries than she can remember. Maybe because she has lived in six states, out west and on both coasts. One thing is for sure, home is where the heart is and she puts her heart into everything she does.

We purchased a 6 bedroom rental property in Kure Beach, NC that was previously decorated in old family dark hand me down furniture. We had the unit repainted and had Daryl come in and modernize and lighten the overall unit look. The most dramatic change was in the kids bunk room. Daryl removed the two, old, broken bunk beds and replaced them with a new, very sturdy twin over full, over twin trundle unit. It is truly amazing. It also increased the advertised sleeping capacity of the house by 2. She updated artwork, bedspreads, repurposed some existing furniture, and relocated existing TV/DVD players in the bedrooms . The end result is a bright, airy, and colorful rental unit.

Daryl was great to work with from the very beginning. She exhibited her skills of listening to our
vision and was then able to incorporate decorations that captured the design we were looking for.
Her attention to the details has enhanced all of our rooms throughout the house. Daryl also was able
to assist us in returning furniture to a company that took advantage of us and getting our money back. She discovered that it was not to the right scale for the room, as promised by that company. Unfortunately we spent thousands of dollars working with that company before we hired her.
She was always very positive and supportive during the entire process. With her skills, she has truly
transformed the house to the home we desired. We have no reservations in recommending her to anyone for their interior design/decorative needs.

Daryl contacted me to assist in an enormous project she had undertaken. She was updating the interior of Shell Island Resort on Wrightsville Beach. With a tight budget, an insane time line due to the rental market and a million moving pieces, she had developed a plan that gave the individual owners of 80 plus units an opportunity to select furnishings and finishes for a beautiful update, yet unique to each unit. Flooring, paint, window treatments, furnishings, linens, lighting, art and accessories, for each unit were carefully selected, purchased, tracked and installed while working with all the individual suppliers, installers, owners, the HOA board and managing staff. Not only did Daryl do an amazing job with all these moving pieces, she did it with grace, style and an infectious joyful spirit. No doubt the owner’s received more than their money’s worth. Each unit is stunning. Not every designer could manage a project like this. Daryl has what it takes.

Daryl of Design Results did a wonderful job refurbishing our three units at the Shell Island Resort. Daryl absolutely transformed our dated, tired looking units into beautiful units. 
The project included all new furniture, floors, lighting fixtures, mirrors, decorations, etc. . 
The project was completed on time, on budget with no problems. We were very pleased with Daryl’s performance. 
I was recently informed by the Shell Island Resort HOA that renters had damaged a dinette table beyond repair and it needed to be replaced. I contacted Daryl who went right to work on it for me. Daryl found out that the table would need to be ordered and that it would take four to five weeks and $585.00 to get. This also meant that there would be a loss of income in the interim as the unit would be removed from the Rental List. 
Fortunately for me Daryl knew a woodworker who could repair the table immediately for just $230.00. In less than five hours Daryl had the table removed, repaired, and replaced. 
Now that’s what I call service! 
Daryl is a true professional and a real pleasure , and I would recommend her highly.

Daryl Rosenbaum renovated two of our condos at Wrightsville Beach and did an incredible job! The units look so great and we are extremely impressed by the designs that she implemented in both. We are very pleased with her furniture selections and placement, as well as the artwork, furnishings and other accent pieces. All of the components go together so well. Daryl is also an extremely nice person and very easy to work with. She went over and above to accommodate all of our special needs. We would strongly recommend Daryl for your next design project.

Daryl and her team did a wonderful job coordinating the design aspects of over 80 units in our condotel. The units needed serious updates and she was polite, tactful and patient in the way she worked with all involved. There were just a few of the chosen products that did not work out, however, we figured this out early in the project and she was able to rectify and solve! She is patient and can work within your budget. I would highly recommend her services.

Shell Island resort in Wrightsville Beach, NC hired Design Results to undertake a massive 80+ condo unit renovation. We are one of the unit owners of that resort. We have to sing the praises of Daryl wholeheartedly! What an amazing accomplishment she performed! Everyone involved in this undertaking was under tremendous pressures in many ways and Daryl remained gracious, upbeat, patient and understanding. She treated us as if we were her only client – enabling us to feel thoroughly understood. Almost everything in the unit was renovated – resulting in a whole new look and feel that’s just perfect for enjoying the ocean. Thank you, Daryl, for all of your hard work and success with this enormous project. We are so happy with the results!

Daryl contacted us for a large project she was completing in North Carolina. She was looking for approximately 50 sleepers with an upgraded mattress and a variety of ‘coastal fabrics & pillows’. She was very friendly to work with and always very responsive, attentive and courteous. It was a pleasure working with Daryl and Design Results and we hope to work in tandem on future projects!

Daryl, the owner of Design Results, has a vision for our home we could not have imagined. All of her design suggestions have been great; from selecting flooring, cabinets, fixtures and exterior colors to exceptional furnishings. Rich colors run throughout our main floor, in particular her work has made our dining room spectacular. The room has a finished, sophisticated look. She had our chairs revitalized completely with exquisite upholstery. She has been able to integrate some fine pieces we had previously throughout our new home. Her assistance in finding unique, quality pieces especially for our foyer, living room and eat-in kitchen has been invaluable. Her space planning helped us envision the flow of the house.

The bedding she chose for our master bedroom is perfect. It’s even reversible so the look in the room can be “refreshed” from time to time. Our guest room is lovely, using a color palette we have never considered. I truly appreciate her adherence to our budget and respect for timeline. Indeed she has made every effort to find us great quality pieces within our budget. We’ve been delighted with her work, called her back, and recommend Design Results highly.

Daryl worked with my wife to get the house looking its best prior to putting it on the market. I don’t do much decorating, but it looked cleaner and sleeker when they were through. It seemed twice as big! Anyway, it worked, as we had a contract on the house in less than 10 days! Seemed like magic to me!

Daryl helped me re-design a property with good bones but a poor layout and bad furniture. She created a special feeling that runs throughout the property with very few pieces to work with. She made the most of the floor plan, and opened up the main floor, emphasizing a great room by removing most of the furniture. She created a foyer where there was none which was made the property special. Showings have picked up dramatically. Feedback now reads ‘excellent’ as opposed to ‘poor’. The property had some opportunity for photography and she took good photos. I am now excited to show this property and recommend Design Results to all my co-workers. The work really made a difference. I will definitely use Design Results again.

Design Results did an amazing job in the turn- furnishing of Coquina, a 6 bedroom beach house. The property was rented out almost immediately for six months and now, in February it is already rented out 7 weeks this summer and for Memorial Day weekend – which is very unusual this early in the year. We were able to raise the rent based on demand. The house is a gorgeous addition to our inventory. The furnishings, bedding and tables in particular have held up really well over the past year. I recommend Daryl and her company Design Results highly for improving rentals and for furnishing investment property as well.

Daryl’s design suggestions far exceeded our expectations. Her design suggestions were visually stimulating and she did a wonderful job of drawing together all of the rooms of the house.

During our initial meeting I told Daryl of our hopes for our new home. I mentioned that at some point I would love to have a grandfather clock in our home. Through her sourcing, Daryl was able to find us a grandfather clock, which was beyond our expectations and under out budget!

I have always been fond of the color blue. When Daryl suggested reupholstering the dining room chairs in a red fabric, I was reluctant, but I trusted Daryl’s talent and ability to see things that were beyond my ability. When the chairs were finished I was thrilled with the outcome. The chairs were beautiful. Daryl’s vision of our needs was carried over into every room of the house. Every item that she suggested has been so impressive. Our home is truly beautiful, and we are so thrilled with the vision that Daryl created for us.
Besides creating a beautiful home for us, Daryl always stayed within the budget that we gave her, which we truly appreciated There is no question that we will continue to use Daryl and her talents for our future plans. I would highly recommend her to any potential client.
