Ginny's Africa-Inspired Sitting Room

Ginny L.

“Erika is a Rock Star. She worked within my budget and managed to incorporate all my eclectic pieces from all over the globe into one vision for the house. She also pushed me (gently) to get out of my comfort zone and results were fantastic. I LOVE my house and furniture. You won’t be disappointed!”

“Erika Lee was a joy to work with. She understood what we were looking for and didn’t push ‘extras.'”

“Erika not only brings her own expertise to the design but is great at  interpreting my life style & my taste and putting it all together.  Erika wants my home to be its very best & it is. I love her ability to use what I already own & suggesting new things that elevate the overall look. This is my second home Erika, of Decorating Den, has done all of my window treatments, arranged furniture & hung wall art along with many other aspects of design. She makes it & takes it personal, the results are the proof. Many thanks to Erika.”

Darcy K.

“What an absolute pleasure it was for me to have met you yesterday! Honestly, I feel like you were heaven sent to me. I actually prayed before you came. I told God I know people are praying for food, so I don’t mean to be a brat, but if He would, please send me someone that will be so easy to work with, who won’t break the tiny budget I have left, and someone who will fix the room exactly how I will love it. And He did just that! I can’t thank you enough for your kindness. You’re an amazing decorator, an artist really! Thanks so very much!”


“We have had our window treatments in our new home for just over a year. Truly one of the best investments we’ve ever made! You have taken our home to the next level, and then some! Thank you for taking such good care of us!”

Marilyn H.

“Top notch decorator!  Erika knows how to intervene when a design plan is not correct.  She guides the homeowner/business establishment in the most effective design for the space.  She allows you to express your vision and expertly accomplishes the best design for your plans.  I would be happy to work with Erika again in the future.”

Jason M.

“Erika Lee is a consummate professional who knows how to put everything together for your home. This includes window treatments, furniture and just about anything you can think of. She can put together any decor and has a great spatial awareness along with the ability to be very positive and hands-on. She is not the average interior decorator. She does beautiful work!”

Kim S.

“Shout out to Erika Lee from The Decorating Den!!! Erika Helped us decorate our basement, bedroom and powder room and they all turned out absolutely amazing. She picked up on our style immediately and could not have been more professional and reliable. Highly recommend giving her a call if you are thinking of doing any changes to your home decor!”

Melissa H.

“We initially met Erika in 2020 when she did a consultation for us. She spent time walking throughout our whole home and giving us ideas on how we can improve things. She was so positive and never said anything bad about our décor or house. She understood our style and always made us feel like our style was the best style out there. After some time, we gradually had Erika select furniture, paint colors, and window treatments. She ended up helping us redo almost our whole home. She connected us with other professionals to help complete many projects in our home. She was incredibly patient and communicative with us throughout the whole process! We can’t express our gratitude enough for Erika! We’ll definitely keep working with Erika to make updates and purchases!”

… and a note from her husband, James:

“I completely underestimated the impact and value of proper lighting and window treatments. Thank you for introducing this in our home.”

Mary W.

“Erika is fabulous! I have a large living room with a 15′ ceiling. The picture window in the living room has a beautiful view and the windows go from floor to ceiling (about 15′). I was just stumped on how to decorate my large room and make the view be the focal point. Erika met with me and instantly was able to help me put my ideas and “wants” into a structured plan. She really took the time to listen to me and to capture what was important to me. My family “lives” in this living room–I wanted it to be classy and put together without being stuffy and unapproachable. The room is finished, and I can truly say that Erika checked every box that mattered to me. My room is gorgeous and pulls the whole house together. Erika was easy to work with–so responsive and she really cared about the final product. I whole-heartedly recommend her services.”

Jordan P.

“We LOVE how well the team worked. The quality and beauty of our new window treatments is unlike anything I have seen before. Words can not express the level of elegance and sophistication brought to our new home. Erika made certain that every step from choosing materials and ordering, through installation were made as painless and simple as possible. We will be enjoying our window treatments for years to come. This is one decision that we will NEVER regret!”

Lisa N.

“The owner, Erika, is an extremely talented decorator! She worked miracles within my very tight budget. She is a pleasure to work with! People may think they can’t afford a decorator, but it’s more reasonable than you think. Plus, it saves from making costly decorating mistakes. I will be using Erika’s services again. She’s awesome!”

Jeanna M.

“Erika. My house looks absolutely fabulous! I freaking love you and what you did for me. Thank you so much.”

Tony M.

“Have worked several times with Erika and value her expert decorating skills. She listened to my idea of the work I wanted to obtain and the end result was so beautiful. I wish my house was bigger so we could work together again. Would highly recommend Erika for any home decorating you plan on doing. You won’t be disappointed.”

Gordon R.

“I would love to give five stars for decorating advice and helping me to use what I haven’t been using such as products I’ve purchased in my many over seas trips and stained and beveled glass.  I love the high energy and honesty she brings to you.  It is a pleasure to have Erika in my home.  She gives you confidence in trying something new. Erika never implied that I was in any way wrong.  After making some changes in arranging and purchasing one small item,  I love my condo more. I felt like an older sister was helping me.  Erika is trust worthy and has your best interest in mind.  She makes decorating fun.”


Maryanna W.

“Erika Lee has an incredible eye for design! Erika always arrived promptly for all our appointments she was a great communicator, always asking insightful questions and thoughtfully hearing what I was saying! Erika is mindful of budgets and a pleasure to work with!”

Julie M.

“Erika helped me arrange my furniture and twirl my house and she came back when I wanted new countertops and a bar installed in my kitchen. I am very please with the results I couldn’t have done this without Erika, She is awesome.”

Rita W.

“Erika is a joy to work with! She is full of excellent ideas, enthusiastic, professional, and responsive to all decorating needs. You can count on her to listen carefully to your needs and offer doable solutions and resources to elevate your home and create a beautiful space. Highly recommend Erika for any and all decorating needs!”

Laura R.

“Erika came out, listened to what I thought I wanted and then helped show me what I was really asking for. She did a great job, and I’ve had her back to help with other projects.”

Jeff and Rachel

“When we moved into our new house in Liberty Township, I needed help with paint colors, new hardwood floors and new window treatments on my entire first floor. Erika was tremendously helpful with all these home improvement projects! She came to my new house and patiently found ways to do all these projects affordably and before I even moved my furniture in! I would highly recommend Erika for your home improvement and decorating projects!”

Kathleen P.

“Over the years I’ve made many improvements to keep my home fresh and bright. Whether it’s a small redo with paint colors and decor in a hall entryway or a kitchen remodel or a living room DIY, I always get Erika involved. She helps turn my ideas into reality – or starts with a blank page – the results are always AMAZING!”

Penney M.

“Erika and I have known each other many years and helped paint more than 75% of our home. She was very creative, detailed, organized, thorough, reliable, trustworthy, caring what we wanted and about all her clients needs, prompt, and outgoing. It’s truly amazing the work she does adding everyone’s personal touch to the work done. I definitely plan on having Erika back when more work is to be done. Erika has been a expert in the field for many years.”

Jennifer N.

“I would highly recommend Erika for any job in your home or office. We will continue to work with Erika when our next project begins, and have the utmost trust in her continuing to do excellent work. The best recommendation we can give is that we referred Erika to several friends They don’t want to work with anyone else!”

“Room Twirling is so much fun! For small dollars, Erika will help you re-arrange your current furniture and accessories so it feels like you have a whole new room. I was so pleased with Erika and the process, I hired her to come back and do a second room!”
