Carla Hrncir, a talented , intuitive and impeccable taste interior designer. We were looking to renovate an English type cottage of 3800 square feet on a creek lot in University Park that was destined to be demolished. We met with Carla three times. She immediately captured the outcome we wanted. She not only singlehandedly transform the house but served as the general contractor as well. We were gone for three months in the summer and got back to our dream house complete with flowers and updated outside sitting. She respected our budget, we left out some pieces for the following year. This multi talented woman took over as our wedding coordinator with a garden ceremony and set up luncheon for 50 as beautiful and elegant as a country side reception in the Cotswolds, England.
Dunbar Designs turned our house into a home… and made every step of the process highly enjoyable! When we first began working with Carla, our home design was in disarray. Rather than shying away from it, she joyfully accepted the challenge to fix our previous mistakes and help us figure out what we desired. We relied on her expertise to research and give us options.From concept to final product, Carla has a keen sense of capturing the essence of your individual personality and style. Her innate ability to understand my style needs and preferences - that I didn't even know I had - was uncanny. She takes your vision and helps you make it real. If you don’t have a vision, she points you in the right direction without ever overstepping. She is very creative and savvy in her use of colors, patterns and textures incorporates your personal taste into every room!Her relationships extend beyond her clients.

I can’t say enough to recommend Carla! She is a delight to work with, her talent in the art of design is unsurpassed. Her execution of projects is efficient and on target. Carla brings a fresh and creative approach to every job. She listens well to her clients, which is very important in this business and sometimes hard to find. She can help implement a client’s vision and yet brings brilliant ideas to the table that make the result of every job unique, chic, and special. Carla has great resources and trade vendors that are well vetted, her work ethic is amazing and her attention to detail is superb and most of all her personality and demeanor make the design process fun! I highly recommend and endorse her, you will be very pleased with her results.
I had the pleasure of working with Carla on a recent remodel of our home. Our home is more than a structure. We spend time at home relaxing, working, and celebrating with friends and family. Carla’s eye for detail is astonishing from every new fabric she chose for our home to the stunning new chandeliers. Now I don’t want to ever leave my happy home thanks to Carla’s beautiful design.

I am so happy to have worked with Carla Hrncir of Dunbar Road Design as I moved into my new home. Each new visitor compliments me as they enter. The colors, the decorative touches and, most of all, the excellent craftsmanship catch everyone's attention. Best of all, I find daily comfort in the over-all beauty and thoughtful arrangement of art pieces and furnishings alike.
Carla is the most amazing designer. I moved into a house that needed some serious updating and was lost as to where to start. She helped me make the most of my budget and literally helped me transform my house from the 1980’s to now with timeless style. Carla listens to you and works with your style, while guiding you through the entire process. She was available and responsive with answers to any questions and has impeccable taste. I am so happy with the outcome and plan on using her again when I am ready for phase two of my renovation!
