Here’s what our clients say about working with us:
Sharon designed our gorgeous new kitchen and we couldn’t be happier with the result! Before the renovations we had an awkwardly laid out space with a cooktop that took up an entire island and left no workspace, and the only place to eat was a tiny counter with 2 stools. To top it off it had the world’s tiniest oven and probably less storage space than we had in our small NYC apartment.
We dreamed of a true eat-in kitchen for our soon to be family of 4, but every designer we met with before Sharon told us it either wasn’t possible or we would have to sacrifice a pantry. In stepped the remarkably talented Sharon who created space for a 6-seater banquette and turned the existing powder room in our kitchen into a walk-in pantry (and made the closet in our foyer into a beautiful new powder room and built a new coat closet in the foyer).
She helped us pick out a unique glass tile backsplash feature and guided us through appliance selections and all the details down to a custom bulletin board. Our kitchen is so functional (we love our pull out drawer for dishes that lets our 3 year old help unload the dishwasher and set the table!) and it is truly our favorite place in our new house. After the kids are in bed I often come down to the kitchen to sit for a minute of quiet and I still think “wow” when I look around.
Best of Everything
Sharon Sherman of Thyme & Place Design delivers the wow factor in so many ways, it’s hard to know where to begin. After dreaming of a kitchen renovation for five years – and generating some pretty high expectations – we contracted Sharon to handle the project and were consistently impressed as she and her crew handled all aspects of the design, planning, and construction.
Sharon didn’t just design us a beautiful kitchen (and it is!), she reimagined our space to make it work immeasurably better for us. A brilliant space planner, Sharon came up with all kinds of clever ideas for the new kitchen and effective solutions to problems we’d dealt with in the old one. And though it goes without saying, she has superb taste and is a consummate design pro. So with a Thyme & Place kitchen you get gorgeous form as well as ingenious function.
Of course, it would all be for nought without great execution – and the Thyme & Place team excels there too. Sharon’s crew was outstanding. The high level of planning detail and prompt communication kept us always feeling that we knew what would be happening and when. We quickly came to completely trust all involved, and were always impressed by the crew’s professionalism and courtesy, as well as their respect for our home and our community’s work rules. We also benefited from Sharon’s relationships with suppliers, getting competitive prices on very high quality materials, and have enjoyed an excellent experience working with Thyme & Place’s helpful and responsive interior design associate, Chelsea Novakoski.
So you could hire a designer and a contractor and a plumber and an electrician and a decorator and find vendors for cabinetry and countertops and flooring and tile and everything else… (the list goes on and on) …but why would you? You can just hire Sharon and get the absolute best of everything with a single point of contact. That’s what we did and we couldn’t be happier.

Finally found a truly exceptional, talented professional
Initially met Thyme & Place Design Principal, Sharon Sherman at a Designer Showcase Home, where we were impressed with her work on a guest bathroom. We immediately hired Thyme & Place Design to handle the design of our Master Bathroom, which we planned to gut renovate.
Ms. Sherman’s laid out so many magnificent design ideas that we expanded the scope of her company’s assignment to include the full gut renovation of 2 full baths & 1 half bath, in addition to the full gut renovation of our kitchen. Needless to say, Ms. Sherman has transformed our 1975 ranch into our own ‘Architectural Digest Designer Showcase Home’.
After renovating four previous residences, we have finally found a truly exceptional, talented professional!!

Thrilled with the design
Sharon and her team did a great job on our kitchen renovation. Sharon was a good listener, with her design responsive to our wish list, while at the same time guiding us with her experience. Ours was a complete renovation down to the studs, including removal of existing walls to create an open concept. We were thrilled with the design and the finished product. We recommend her and her team without reservation.

Drastically Reduced Our Anxiety
Thank you so much for helping us put our kitchen together. We felt so much more comfortable working with someone we trust. It was fun to get a glimpse into your world and business outside of swimming. Working with you also drastically reduced our anxiety in this area since we have so little experience in it. We really appreciate everything you did for us.

Absolutely fabulous job
Sharon and the team at Thyme & Place design did an absolutely fabulous job helping us design and execute a full renovation of our master bath. Sharon was excellent at helping us with every step of the process, from layout and design to picking out the perfect tile, tub, vanity, etc. She introduced us to an unbelievable contractor and then worked seemlessly with him to make sure everything was on time and on budget. We can wait to have another project to work on with Sharon and her team.

Couldn’t be happier with the final product
Going into this project we were overwhelmed with all of the options and possibilities available when designing a kitchen. Sharon worked with us every step of the way to realize the kitchen we’ve always wanted and made the whole process enjoyable. Her expertise and eye for design are invaluable. We couldn’t be happier with the final product and can’t wait to work with her on our next renovation.

Came out better than we had hoped
My wife and I wanted to completely make over our family room as it is where we spend the most time. After having several discussions with Sharon, she came up with a great design that totally matched what was in my head. Like in any project, some aspects of the design were difficult to visualize and we would default to Sharon’s suggestion. She really nailed it – the room came out even better than we had hoped and friends and family have all been effusive in their praise. We will definitely consult Sharon before we do anything else in our house.

We hired Sharon and Randy to update 2 bathrooms, entry way and our basement. Project turned out great and finished on time. Both communicated throughout the project, and post-project, and we’re very happy with how it turned out.

Creative planning and space design
It has been a pleasure to work with Sharon Sherman of Thyme and Place Designs. After our first kitchen remodel we called upon her expertise again after moving to our present home which involved a bathroom remodel, as well as major construction changes. Twice, we have benefited by her creative planning and space design. She listened to our needs and executed a design plan which we thoroughly enjoy everyday. The project came in on time and budget. She is easily reachable, her office staff is knowledgeable, courteous and pleasant.
I do not intend another move but there is no one other than Thyme and Place Design I would call upon again if that were the case.

I recommend her highly
Sharon did all 4 of my bathrooms and kitchen. She worked very well with my architect and builder to make sure I had a spectacular outcome. Which is exactly what happened. People love my kitchen and baths. They are timeless. They are also original enough that they seem totally new. I am often asked to put my house on tours to show off what Sharon has done. In fact, Sharon won an award for my kitchen from Viking Appliances. Sharon has been in this business for well over 20 years. I recommend her HIGHLY!

The consummate professional
It has always been a pleasure working with Sharon. She is the consummate professional who pays attention to the client’s needs and preferences while providing valuable creative input. We worked together on both a kitchen (which I still love after 12 years) and the ultimate “Big Boy Playroom” which has been the best investment of our lives. Hope to work with her again when I “sell” the master bedroom renovation to the “Boss”.

Elegance, function, and technology
We utilized Thyme & Place Design to design a Master Bedroom inclusive of a Master Bath and “Mom Cave”, to design a secondary full bath, to design and furnish a home office, and to design and furnish a family room. Sharon and team were always ready, willing, and able to meet and exceed our expectations. She listened to our desires and interests to produce completed projects that incorporated elegance, function, and technology with an appreciation for the environment. Before you go see an architect, I recommend that you arrange to meet with Sharon first.

Truly exceeded our expectations
We have used Thyme and Place Design for two full bathroom renovations and couldn’t be more pleased. Sharon is a true professional. She guided us through the process, worked with us to come up with designs that met our needs, and her staff was exceptional. All of the contractors were extremely courteous, reliable, and always left the space as neat as possible. Both of our projects were completed ahead of schedule and truly exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Thyme and Place Design!
