What they're saying...

“John Banks has been enormously helpful to us as we made the transition from having children at home to becoming empty-nesters.  He helped us make decisions about what was worth saving and what needed to go.  In addition, he gave our den a beautiful, fresh new look more in keeping with our desire to see it as a gathering place for a grown family.  He was an essential member of the team when we added on to our mountain house, and he was also very helpful in bringing clarity of thought to our daughter’s move to her condo.  Most importantly, we not only gained a more beautiful, organized home, and a gracious mountain addition, we gained a friend.  John is a man of integrity, high standards, and creative vision in keeping with good taste and quality.  We are proud to recommend him and urge you to trust his good judgment as he guides you towards the best way to achieve your dream of a more lovely home.”

“I was scared at first that John was going to make my house too grand, but he took my ideas to heart and created the most beautiful home. It is so warm, comfortable and inviting. We love it… our friends love it!”

“When my wife and I were faced with the overcoming obstacle of getting our house decorated before my 50th birthday event there, we were ecstatic that John Banks agreed to take on the challenge! He was able to transform our desert into a beautiful and comfortable “oasis. John did not have us discard everything in the house, but he was able to utilize pieces in such a way that they were given “new life.” Every room looked perfect… Everything was very “understated” but elegant. And, perhaps best of all, it didn’t “break the bank.” He made the “impossible” possible. We could not have done it without John!”

“Every time you walk into the house, it makes you feel so good about yourself and your life. You love to come home.”

I had the opportunity to work with John Banks on my Ansley Park home. John was a pleasure to work with and his design vision for our home was such an inspiration. The home was featured on the Ansley Park tour of homes soon after we completed the work and we received countless compliments and questions about “Who is the designer!?”.
The home was then featured in Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Magazine. All thanks to John.
My favorite design element was John‘s choice of the “paper bag“ gold and brown stripe dining room wall paper from Dotty Travis Design. It had the effect of making the house feel casual and rich all at the same time. When we decided to sell, the home’s splendid design helped us sell at top dollar.
Best of all, John is a joy to work with. He is highly responsive, witty, light-hearted, but diligent and talented. Best of all – he knows his stuff and has fabulous sources. We would use him again in a minute. Finally, I have never hesitated to refer him to my real estate clients as well.
