From Melanie K. - Family Room, Screened in Porch and Deck - Fairfax Station, Current Client
My husband and I had seen and heard about the work of designers, Aliza, and Anita of RoomAntics Interiors from friends and acquaintances. As we prepared for a screened-in porch and deck added to the back of our home, we thought it best to bring on professional designers that would guide us in making the addition blend seamlessly with our existing Kitchen & Family Rm. We also needed new Family Room furniture and to have the rest of our first floor “refreshed.” Aliza and Anita explained that by making minimum furniture of 5,000 per specific room, they would then design the room picking the paint, rug, art, drapes, and accessories, from soup to nuts without charging an hourly fee.
From Danielle F. - Staging & Home Redesign - Falls Church, August 2018
Anita and Aliza are like magicians for your home! They can transform a space from “fine” to “fabulous” with a wave of their creative wands! Anita came to our home one Sunday for an initial consultation to stage our house for sale. As she walked around, she pointed things out—this needs to go there; that needs to be removed; we need to add this and that...we were amazed
From Ann K. - Kitchen and Laundry Remodel
It's a pleasure to give testimony to and praise for the work and talents of RoomAntics Interiors. My husband David and I just renovated our kitchen last winter and having Anita & Aliza's design expertise and guidance was a key decision in the total success and our happiness with this enormous project! It took a bit of convincing Dave that we needed professional design guidance...
From Lynne L. - Staging and Home Redesign - August 2015
Our house has been on the market only five days and the part you played in staging it has wowed both our Realtor, the 24 salespeople who attended the Realtor open house, and the 8 potential buyers who have come through. Our Realtor’s feedback form asks for overall impression of the home, and we have almost 100 percent 10’s (outstanding) with just three 9s. Many Realtors actually commented on the “staging.”
From Eleanor - Office Virtual Redesign - June 2020
I was looking for an inspirational, professional and comfortable home office space to have virtual conferences with clients, study and do research. We hired (Roomantics Interiors)for a refresher for our basement and are thrilled with the results!!
RoomAntics had the expertise to implement a great furniture layout for the space, advised painting existing old bookcases and created a beautiful grey, white and soft yellow color scheme. Part of the space is actually our Basement Family Room and Exercise Area, and they were very helpful in designing and accessorizing that area as well. I never thought of using an interior designer for this, but quickly realized how a good design can make a house feel more like a home that my family loves. Being a military family, we have lived in over 13 homes, and having professionals use our personal objects in an artistic and functional way makes my new office unique and special and very productive.
From Mike W. - Home Redesign and Staging - Alexandria, VA, March 2020
Anita and Aliza transformed my mother’s 4-bedroom colonial home in Alexandria from a 1970’s era ‘dated’ look to a ‘2020 home’ move in ready for a new homeowner. After only a consultation walkthrough of the home, the RoomAntics team pointed out what changes would add value to the home and be the most cost effective in our sale process. Their consulting advice was absolutely what I needed. If I had done on my own there is no way the home would have sold in the same timeframe (on the first weekend!), in a Covid-19 market, above the asking price. The buyers told us they walked in and knew instantly this was going to be their home.

What prompted you to choose RoomAntics Interiors?
When I met Anita at a business networking group I had just joined, my Stager had just retired. I feel as a realtor it is very important to have an excellent Stager. This truly does complement my business. I needed someone who was very knowledgeable, personable and not afraid to address objections from my sellers. Staged homes sell much faster and at a higher price point than those that are not staged.
From Lisa A. - Realtor - Multiple Staging Projects
I highly recommend Anita and Aliza of RoomAntics. I am a Realtor and I originally met them at a networking group and decided to give them a try. Staging is a crucial part of getting the most amount of money in the least amount of time and I wanted to give my clients a great experience. Each time my clients listen to them they end up getting more money than they could have without them. I had one client who had the biggest townhome in the neighborhood. They wanted to price their home higher accordingly but buyers do not always want to pay. They hired Anita and Aliza to stage their house and it was transformed. The before and after pictures said it all. They received four offers in the first weekend and got over list price. They also got top dollar in the neighborhood. This is the trend that I see whenever my clients hire RoomAntics to stage beyond the initial consultation. They are talented ladies who really know how to help stage and or design a home. I highly recommend them to anyone who may be selling their house or want to decorate their new home. They can help you purchase and design your home from top to bottom. Simply the best.
From Karen R. - Client - June 2017
I have had the great fortune of working with Anita and Aliza. I found them via their website and was impressed from the onset. I have gotten to know them as two warm creative professionals and they literally have made my dream basement come true. Together, Aliza and Anita form a strong creative team at RoomAntics Interiors. Their personalities, their eye for detail, their flawless way of putting themselves in the place of the client and helping the client create a dream vision of what they want in their home makes them a great complimentary force in interior design. Starting with my basement, the ladies and I are now tackling and have almost finished my kitchen and who knows one day I can convince my husband to give way and redesign his man cave of an office. This long-term relationship has been a true enrichment of my home and well-being. I no longer hate working from my lousy dull basement but enjoy going to work.
From Five Star Painting - Vendor - Multiple Projects
I hired Anita and Aliza to assist my painting company with a client whose exterior had many different types of substrates from brick, brown/white trimmings, decks, wood siding, shutters, and a front door that all needed painting. The synchronized a color pallet that turned out amazing and my client was extremely pleased. They are now working with my client on interior furnishings. I continue to use their color consulting services with all of my customers.
From Heather A. - Client - House Renovation and Staging Project- Arlington, VA - Jan 2018
I first started working with Aliza and Anita of Roomantics Interiors a few years ago when it came time to prepare to sell my parents’ home. Although, I was apprehensive about hiring them to oversee a long list of items in the house that needed attending to and staging the house, my realtor highly recommended them. Aliza and Anita picked everything from paint colors to light fixtures and had a wide range of trade connections for painters, flooring specialists, electricians and handymen to get the project going. My parents had wonderful travels in Europe and
From Amy E. - Client - Home Renovation - July 2019
As a fairly newly divorced woman, I purchased a townhouse in July of 2016. I knew Anita and Aliza as friends for many years and I knew they had great taste as I have visited their own homes. That is what prompted me to use them for decorating my own home. It was very important for me to decorate my own place in the style and colors I love. I wanted this new home to be a treasured sanctuary for me as well as my now 23-year-old daughter who lives with me.
I found out that besides having beautiful taste and creative ideas, Anita and Aliza were so much fun and very easy to work with. Not only did I use them for my living room, kitchen and dining room, but I also went on to use them for color and style consultations for my master bedroom, my daughter’s bedroom, our bathrooms, and my downstairs den, as well as my powder room.
I had a concern about painting one wall in split bright colors, but I took the leap with Anita and Aliza and it looks so good. I truly feel like my home is really lovely and unusual. It is not a “cookie-cutter: palette or arrangement.
The personal touches from the designers are also so invaluable. They recently put all my stuff from an old breakfront back into the gorgeous new breakfront they ordered for me. They will be there for furniture delivery and to give the place a little extra oomph and pizazz when they know you are having company coming. We work very collaboratively together. I have never been made to feel that my “lay” opinions don’t count or have value. I have used these designers for nearly every single room in my house and I am so pleased with the results. It has made me truly love entertaining.
From Fern S. - Client - Home Renovation - July 2018
My husband and I were new to townhouse living and struggled with making our new home enjoyable as we love to host dinner parties and have friends over. We contacted RoomAntics and explained that we needed help with using our space and furniture for entertainment and that we wanted to lighten up our house. What happened next was a total surprise! RoomAntics very first update was to change the way we arranged furniture in our family room. Prior to that, my husband and I never sat in that room. That evening after dinner, we sat in that room and marveled at how welcoming and inviting our ‘new’ space was!
From Julie K. - Client - Home Renovation - Oct 2018
I have been very lucky to work with the amazing designers from RoomAntics, Anita Buchheim and Aliza Spindell. My house and everything in it was lost in a fire on September 2016. Our insurance allowed us to rebuild the house, but for me, this became a very stressful process. There were too many choices, and too much to decide, and I felt overwhelmed and anxious. I initially hired RoomAntics to help me pick paint colors, wood flooring, kitchen granite, and a kitchen backsplash. Anita and Aliza listened to what I wanted, and they showed me how everything could work together. They gave me choices and answered all my questions and concerns. After a week of working with them, I felt completely different about this process. Suddenly, I was hopeful and excited about our new house.
