    It only took one look at Rumi Neely's amazing home for us to see that the folks at Homepolish — the interior geniuses responsible for the fashion star's home makeover — know what they're doing. Whether it's a total renovation or finding the perfect finishing touches, Homepolish designers work by the hour to create balanced spaces that just work.

    As much as we love tooting our own horn ("Our clients are thrilled!" "Look how amazing this place we designed is!"), we're treating you to a special point-of-view written by one of our very talented clients: writer Geraldine Campbell. Geraldine lives in Brooklyn with a little pup named Charlie, and when she needed help furnishing and organizing her studio apartment — where she often works from home — she called us. Read about her personal Homepolish experience below ,and click through the slideshow to see exactly where her designer, Will Saks, made a huge difference.

    In June, after a two-and-a-half-year hiatus in the country, I moved back to Brooklyn. It took me a solid month of apartment-hunting to find the one, and when I finally did, I was thrilled.

    But, when the previous tenant’s furniture was gone and everything was laid bare for me to fill with my furnishings and belongings, I couldn’t help but feel a bit disappointed. I didn't know where to begin! The place needed some professional help, so I enlisted Homepolish designer Will Saks to work his magic.
