"I called Cheryl several months ago as I needed a picture above my couch, I'd been looking and looking and just couldn't find the right one, Cheryl offered to stop by and take a look; Cheryl took a look around the house, and I could see her artistic mind working; she did a little shifting (all to my liking), and I had exactly what I was looking for. As Cheryl was working "her little magic" in my home, she always made sure I approved; now the best part, I didn't have to purchase a picture, I truly was very pleased, and would not hesitate to call Cheryl for any type of interior decorating."

“Cheryl I want to thank you so much for your expertise in planning our 30th Wedding Anniversary Party May 30th; as you know Helen and I decided to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary; after a preliminary discussion with the manager of one our favorite restaurants, and began building our guest list, we soon approached 50 people and decided the restaurant venue was not adequate.
Upon investigating alternatives and realizing we lost the expertise of the restaurant event manager; then entered Cheryl Cwiklinski, whom we observed planning and organizing a very successful fund raising venue in Pingree Grove. My wife and I enlisted Cheryl’s assistance in planning our anniversary party, which proved to be a perfect choice; Cheryl’s guidance and hands-on approach made our celebration for 75 people an event we will long remember, she turned a box-like room into a party palace with soft music, beautiful flower arrangements, and a food display our guest had rarely seen..
Cheryl researched and met with various vendors, then negotiated several contracts with caterers, beverage supplier, bakery, florist, and linen establishments; as a result, we simply had to say “yes or no”. On the day of the event Helen and I were free to circulate among our guests, knowing all the details were well under Cheryl’s control; without Cheryl’s guidance and meticulous eye for details, we would not have had such a successful 30th Anniversary Celebration, and therefore highly recommend hiring Cheryl to orchestrate your next wedding, anniversary celebration or private party."

"Cheryl, I want to thank you for all the beautiful work you did in my home; as you know, we moved from a house twice the size of our new home and with the open concept, I had difficulty deciding where to hang art, arrange photos or collectibles and position furniture in the right location, and you pulled it all together effortlessly.
With your guidance I avoided many costly mistakes by being able to utilize most of my furniture and art; I absolutely love everything you have done and so does my husband, I would therefore recommend you and your decorating talent to anyone interested in improving their home.
I can’t thank you enough for making my home a wonderful and relaxing space for my husband and me to enjoy and entertain friends with delight."

"I have been thinking of how I can provide a reference without seeming to go overboard in my acclamations of Cheryl’s talents and her work ethics. If I wrote what I feel, no one would believe that she could measure up to my account of her unusual gifts and her passion in the areas of decorating and staging."

"I have observed and been the warm recipient of your staging abilities and decorating talent for a number of years. I am not sure if you remember the two homes that you have assisted with in terms of decorating. The first home was on Lakeshore Drive with a beautiful apartment overlooking Lake Michigan. You took a few shopping trips with me and before I knew it, I had a wonderfully decorated apartment that was the envy of relatives and friends. It was your understanding of my life style, profession and need to have an atmosphere, which allowed for relaxation as well as work.
The second time you assisted with staging was in my new home in Indianapolis, Indiana. You selected carefully appliances, carpeting, etc. You have since helped decide on the best way to utilize what was brought from the Lakeshore Drive apartment. You have the talent and ability to bring any space and home alive. It should be noted that you are able to use unusual decorating concepts based upon the client. I recommend your services without reservation. I am only regretful that you are not in Florida to stage my current residence. Good luck to you."

"I just returned from a two-week vacation so I hope I am not too late to recommend Cheryl. I have had the privilege of knowing Cheryl for about 5 years. She is a consummate professional, gifted decorator, and the hardest working perfectionist I have ever met. Most importantly, Cheryl is a lovely, honest, dependable person. I cannot say enough good about her."

"Choosing the right person to stage your property is an important decision and investment. I am certain that a relentless work ethic and undeniable talent are high on your list of expectations. Cheryl will work tirelessly so that your home will sell. Her attention to detail, from the way the furniture is carefully positioned to the way the valances silhouette the windows, makes her own house feel like a warm and welcoming home.
Cheryl will transform your living space so that buyers take immediate notice. This is especially important since you want to make the most favorable impression for each prospective buyer. Congratulations on your partnership with Cheryl and selling your home."

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Cheryl Cwiklinski for over ten years. During this time, I had a business relationship that bloomed into a personal one. My husband and I have great respect for her commitment, drive and talent.
The office in which we worked was nothing but a first class environment. It made those long hard days easier to handle with some comforts of home.
Cheryl's home is beautiful; she has this natural eye for beauty. House Beautiful magazine could easily do a feature on her work between the office and her home. Entrusting Cheryl to stage your home was the perfect choice. Her fresh and exciting ideas will make a difference."
