“I cannot say enough about my experience with The Blue Pagoda! I recently had my great-grandmothers settee refurbished and reupholstered. Quite honestly, it is now a piece of art! The quality of work, artistry and service by Shelly Yurcek was outstanding. The coordinating pillows for my bedroom brought the entire room together. I absolutely love it!! Five stars and more.” – T.

“Michele Yurcek of The Blue Pagoda helped me design my remodel, from finding me one of a kind furniture pieces, choosing fabrics for my window treatments, to arranging for my wood build outs. She paid attention to the details, quickly caught on to my taste, and made the process enjoyable.
I highly recommend her as a home designer and furniture supplier.” L. Damiani


“Highly recommend Michele from The Blue Pagoda. She is such a great listener- which I think is one of the best traits a person can have. Her attention to detail is incredible as well as her style and taste in decor. She does not try to rush you or push you into buying outside of your budget…Decorating can be such a personal and emotional undertaking and I loved Michele’s calm demeanor throughout the whole process!” C. Caspersen


“My family and I were hosting our daughter’s wedding reception at our home with relatively short notice. I wanted to give the family room a makeover without spending a lot of money. Shelly Yurcek came to our home and discussed different options, fabric choices and kept in mind our budget. She recovered our cornice box and made coordinating cushions for our hearth with matching pillows. This completely transformed the room into an updated, fresh, appealing oasis. The room is now the family favorite and we will be enjoying it for years to come. Shelly had a pretty tight deadline and she kept the project under budget and the project was completed with time to spare! I couldn’t be more pleased!!!” – C. Bell
