Polly B. Corn:

A native northern Californian Polly re-located to Boston in 1994. She graduated from The New England School of Art & Design’s Interior Design Program in 1999. In the years following Polly worked for several high end interior designers in Boston; working on large-scale residential projects. Since starting her own business in 2008 she has maintained her personal contacts and resources within the design community. Polly enjoys using her education, experience and talents to assist clients create their ultimate living spaces.

Philosophy:

The most important component of good design is the ability to listen to client’s specific desires. Design can be an overwhelming and intimidating process for many people and as a designer, my job is to understand how the spaces are to be used so I can help guide, educate and create the best possible environment. The end result is a unique reflection and expression of an individual’s needs, lifestyle and a place they will always enjoy coming home to.

Endorsements:

“I needed a completely remodeled kitchen, and had the pleasure of working with Polly to achieve that goal. It was a very small and challenging space, and I could not have been happier with the results. She listened to what I liked, and was very good at steering me in the right direction when selecting materials. What I liked best, was that when she knew something would not work, she was very diplomatic, but firm about taking another route. Anytime I wasn’t quite sure about something, her choices ended up being my absolute favorite ones. She is always approachable, professional and patient. She was always persistent in trying to move the project forward despite some less than cooperative contracting, which can certainly be challenging. I highly recommend her, and plan on using her services again when I remodel my bathroom.”

“Polly Corn Design was my first experience working with a designer. I quickly learned that there are areas in which I need to trust an experienced professional who can present possibilities which might never occur to me. Kitchen tile is a good example. Polly took me to a high quality tile store. She exposed me to possibilities that I never knew existed and very quickly a choice for just the right backsplash came together.
Polly’s excellent color sense was the key to developing the color scheme for my entire house. I participated actively and learned how a rug or fabric selection can then direct all other color decisions.
Furniture selection is the hardest process for me to share with a designer. Before working with Polly, I made some furniture choices which did not “work out”. Polly helped steer me in the right direction. If I have to be the ship’s captain, Polly helped me to realize that I do need a harbor pilot before I actually dock the boat.”
