  • Re-Feather Your Nest is helping homeowners, realtors and builders all over Northern New Jersey, create more comfortable, attractive and functional living spaces. Here's what many are saying...

  • I had the pleasure of working with Susan on my home in NJ. She helped me with paint colors, fabric for my sofa and wall coverings. I could not be happier with the room. Susan listened to me and made suggestions to go along with my taste. My husband and I currently purchased a condo in Fla. It was overwhelming to think of furnishing the whole room especially in a state that I do not live in. Susan put a plan together for each room along with lists of stores where I could find the pieces she suggested in. I received a floor plan for each room as well as suggestions for paint color, lamps and paintings. She took many of my calls while I was in Fla making my purchases which I so very much appreciate. Susan was very mindful of pricing and allowed me to stay within my budget. I am so pleased and grateful and highly recommend Susan. My nest looks so pretty!

  • I love Michelle's work! She's designed window treatments for our new master bedroom and bathroom suite, our great room (including for sky lights), and in a small bathroom. She's very professional, reliable, responsive, creative, flexible, helpful in choosing patterns, fabrics, etc. and willing to work with your personal tastes and budgets. I've recommended her to several others, all of whom have been very happy with the Michelle and the final window treatments.


  • Susan Hayes is a consummate professional who always has her client's interests at heart. Susan is very cost-conscious; always on the lookout for quality furnishings and services at the best price possible. The work Susan did in staging my home made all the difference in presenting it beautifully for sale. Susan transformed my cozy surroundings into a model home! I would not hesitate to recommend Susan to anyone looking for professional decorating services to update and refine their home. Susan has a wonderful demeanor, and it was a pleasure to work with her to achieve my goals.

  • Susan is fantastic! She helped me move from a 4 bedroom center hall colonial to a town home. I picked some furniture I wanted to bring with me and she worked around it. She picked all the paint colors for me which are fabulous! She also helped select window treatment and light fixtures and provided advice on how to put furniture in the room. She selected a great color for the kitchen cabinets. It has all come together in such a great way. It looks awesome and I have Susan and Re-Feather Your Nest Decorating to thank for all of it. I could not have done it without her help.

  • Michelle has done several projects in my home. Two story great room windows, kitchen, master bedroom and library. With each project came challenges that Michelle met with ease and professionalism. Her fabric choices are endless and she will not give up until you find the perfect fabric to complete your project perfectly. Michelle is passionate about making sure your personal style is reflected in the finished product. Install was flawless, on time and with in budget. A win win. I wish all my contractors were like her.


  • I had a lovely home listing in a beautiful neighborhood, and from my exerpience the house had all the latest designs that new buyers are looking for when they purchase a home. However, after several months and not one offer the sellers and I were extremely frustrated. After bringing in Re-Feather Your Nest, the house was transformed in 3 hours. I love their approach of using what is currently in the home and I did not have to spend money for props and furniture. The whole process was quick and affordable with instant results. The seller received a very nice offer that same weekend.

  • Thank you for your recent help with my listing at 45 Wilson Drive in Berkeley Heights. The house looked awesome! We were under contract in just 10 days over there!

  • Moving into a new home is an exciting, yet overwhelming experience. Any aspect of this process that can be made less stressful is enjoyable and makes for a more efficient work process. As new homeowners, our experience with Michelle was exactly what we were hoping for. The personal interaction throughout our selection, and the individual attention Michelle gave us, made us feel as though we had her complete attention. Michelle's presentation of styles and multiple price points, along with her ability to create computer advance designs, gave Lew and I an opportunity to select unique window treatments. Michelle -- Than you for helping to transform our new house into our "Home."

  • Susan, first of all let me thank you again for coming in so quickly and really making a difference in how our house will be presented. You have made a house a home that will speak volumes to potential buyers. (Sold in less than 2 weeks in February of 2008)
