Client Testimonials

“Karen Essary took on the challenge of creating original design window treatments for the church’s 130 year old Victorian parsonage. She did an amazing job adding grace to the long narrow window in our living room yet preserving the light. In the dining room she created warmth and intimacy as well as assuring privacy from the building next door. We were so pleased with the results that we have asked her to do the window treatments for the 650 ft addition for our lake cottage.”

-Rev. Ellen McGormley, co-pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Monroe, Michigan.

“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your work on the drapery done for our law firm. We are enjoying the treatments very much. The quality of the drapery material, the lining that was included, and the workmanship in making and installing them, was extremely high, and we appreciated it.”

-W. Thomas Graham, Attorney at Law

“C’est la vie has consulted with Karen Essary for window fashions and embellishments for the past 10 years. She continues to provide our clients with treatments meeting the high standards that our business demands. We have the utmost confidence in all of her work and installations. Karen is extremely professional and takes pride in all of her work, and it shows. I would guarantee her work to anyone.”

-Kathy Volpi, Owner, C’est la vie! Toledo, Ohio

“I worked with Karen when I moved into my new condo. She was very good at putting together beautiful fabrics and offering suggestions to achieve a very complete look. With her help I didn’t need to hire a decorator. Shortly after that, I asked Karen for help on a remodel project at one of our local women’s shelters and she pitched in right away. Karen is also very clear on the business side of things and very timely. I still receive many compliments on my beautiful home.”
