"I recently moved to Florida leaving behind most of my aging furniture. I purchased a modern house with no character so with almost a blank slate to work with and wishing to avoid expensive mistakes decided to hire a designer. I interviewed 4 designers before selecting Molly. She was the only one having a "vision" for what I wanted based on our conversations and the few pieces of furniture and artwork I retained. She is brilliant. Given my budget, she put together furniture styles, fabric patterns, colors, window treatment, and light fixtures transforming my house from cold and angular to warm and inviting. In addition to being talented, Molly follows through on purchases. She dealt directly with the manufacturer in resolving a problem with a piece of furniture and supervised installation of window treatment insisting on perfection. Finally, she is not a snob. If you want recliners she won't raise her eyebrows in distaste, as others did, but will find the perfect color, size, style to accommodate your space and lifestyle. I can recommend Defined Interiors without reservation."

"To anyone who wishes to design and decorate attractively and uniquely, please consult Molly Riley. She has been my source of design since 1989 for our condonminium in Florida. She also contributed to our new house in Georgia. She came, even very pregnant connecting on time with apointments faithfully, gave great ideas and brought plenty of wallpaper samples, fabric and paint chips. Molly created rooms of high quality, always getting furniture in perfect order and clean. She also gets beautiful upholstery and restores bamboo furniture to almost new. The people she works with are very honest and skilled. I can't praise her more as far as work goes, and she is a very pleasant person to work with."

"I am very happy with the results of my newly renovated master bathroom. Molly kept on top of everything, and I didn't have to stress much at all about whether things would get done on time, or about quality control. I would definitely use Molly's services again."

"Bob and I are extremely happy with the remarkable job you did on our home. You are truly a master of interior design. Initially, we thought we could handle redesigning our interior ourselves; we knew it was a project only a decorator could take-on. After consulting with a "decorator" who didn't capture our total confidence, we contacted you. Little did we know we had just made the best decision of our post-hurricane life; your came to our home, helped us make educated design decisions and simply made our project happen. We absolutely love the result. Molly, thank you for your creativity and personal attention. We will most definitely be relying on you for our future design endeavors."

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Molly Jackson-Riley, both professionally and personally, since 1982. As an interior designer, Molly was involved in the design and decor of Advanced Dental Clinic, our 4,000 square foot dental practice. She devised the color schemes, treatment room cabinetry colors, personal office furnishings, etc. Molly patiently consulted with me and Dr. Tarek Elzawahry, owner, for nine months. When the dental clinic was complete, it was classy, yet unpretentious; comfortable, yet professional-----everything we had set out to do and more. Molly is a consummate professional and has a wonderful eye for color. She also listens and understands her clients' visions. I recommend Molly for any design endeavor she sets out to accomplish."

"I have worked closely with Molly on eleven projects over the past 5 years, including models and my personal residence. I can say without reservation that she is one of the most professional and personable individuals I've had the pleasure to work with. Molly's most effective tool is her ability to effectively listen to the customer. She spends the time required to fully understand the customer's vision before making suggestions. This understanding extends to the budgetary concerns usually associated with the aspect of a project. Her guidance and professional opinions were always thoughtfully presented in order to accomplish the job while being mindful of the customer's sense of style. This letter serves as my written recommendation of Molly and her ability as an Interior Designer. I would be glad to discuss her talents in greater detail at any time."
