It is with great please that I write this letter of recommendation for Ms. Paula J Letelier. Ms. Letelier acted as our Interior Designer providing guidance on all our interior design matters relating to a very extensive Villa renovation we undertook during 2012 in AL Barari, Dubai and our Resto- Lounge newly opened in JLT-Dubai. She provided invaluable guidance in regard to color schemes, furniture selection, flooring and tiling, painting, lighting and accessories. This renovation involved a complete redesign of the interior of both Projects. We are ecstatic about the results Paula achieved. It is a true testament to her talent that relatives, friends, guests and customers who visited our both sites are in awe of the transformation. She is very creative.
It was a pleasure to work with Paula. While she has definite opinions in regard to all designs related issues she LISTENS to the client and works hard to understand the needs of the client. She is a great person and very comfortable to work with.
We would characterize our renovation and execution Projects as a “high end" projects. A substantial investment was committed to the renovation and execution including the interior design and the decor package. So while the budget was substantial, Paula and her Company PJL always looked for good value when making product recommendations. We came to see her as a very practical interior design Engineer who can deliver good value for both modest and high end projects. The desire to provide good value to her clients was also apparent in her time management and record keeping on both projects. She was very professional and we always felt that we were getting good value for her consulting fees.
Paula Javiera Letelier has worked with dwp (Design Worldwide Partnership) as a valued consultant for some 5 years. Called upon to take the lead on complex design projects Paula has both the technical and managerial skill to deliver to the highest expectations of dwp and our clients. Paula’s expertise is extensive and has successfully lead hospitality, residential and workplace projects for dwp. Able to self manage and deliver, we have the utmost confidence in recommending Paula for interior architecture consultancy.
PJL was invited to take on a task to create a chair for Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation for the year of knowledge 2016. The Knowledge Chair.
Ms Paula Javiera Letelier took the challenge very personal and developed a piece of art which has taken into consideration all of our needs and expectations. We were impressed by her attention to detail as well as providing not just a single chair but a multiple piece design for large spaces, as well as the selection of materials and the know-how of each piece and how it has been put together to achieve the quality of our knowledge chair.
PJL was very supportive throughout the complete construction process of the chair to ensure all details are carried out as per her documentation, this was proven until the delivery of the chair to its site. She is not just a designer, but also a problem solver. She has even enlightened us in detail as to why materials have been chosen to ensure the most durable piece endures the public space library chair handling.
PJL did not only provide MBRF with a beautiful designed chair that was to cater for the readers but it also attracted the non-readers to admire and enjoy the experience to take a book and read.
I recommend PJL as a very professional and passionate designer with immense knowledge and passion.
Paula had an excellent understanding of what we had in mind when we were envisaging the plan for our home, translating our ideas perfectly to her designs so we were delivered exactly what we asked for.
Her own suggestions to complement our thoughts were tasteful and well considered. She offered a very complete service, even accompanying us to choose fabric, designing furniture from ~ cratch to then be assembled by expert suppliers she put us in touch with and providing finishing services, such as for our stonework.
As well as always being personable and eager to assist in any way possible, Paula’s knowledge of her own trade and of what is available on the market in Dubai in general is second to none.
We would be very happy to recommend Paula in the future and we continue to use her ourselves as small projects pop up around the house.
