I worked with Louise on my home remodel. She helped me choose everything from flooring to light fixtures,shower tiles to cabinet pulls. I didn’t realize how many choices I had to make. One of the great things about Louise is her ability to know what I want from the thousands of options. I’m so happy with the results,she did a fantastic job.(Also-she is a lot of fun to shop with). I was also fearful of going way over my limited budget. Louise kept me in line,while still giving me the home I love.

Our project: Update the two original bathrooms in our mid-century ranch so that one is wheelchair-accessible and the other one is walker-accessible. Additional goal: place the washer and dryer on the main level of the house instead of in the basement.
Problem: We were stumped on how to stay within the current footprint of the house and still attain our goals. And we had been staring at this challenge for years.
Louise came highly recommended from a realtor friend and from another friend who did an entire house remodel with Louise as the designer.
Louise listened to our goals and concerns; she asked questions about how we wanted to use the space and about our budget. We met with her several times before the final drawings were completed. Each time we met, we reviewed the design and were given follow-up assignments appropriate for the stage of the design. Examples: one time we searched for bathroom tile; another time we selected plumbing components. We never felt overwhelmed during the design process.
In addition to her excellence in maximizing space, she had excellent suggestions for people and companies to talk with for tile, plumbing, carpets, etc. She reviewed our decisions for appropriateness to our goals.
She delivered a complete set of drawings that effectively used the space available and that our contractor was able use for the permitting process and to do the work. We had a design the met our goals and provided an effective work flow throughout the area.
We would use her services again.d2dufresne, Client
Louise and I have collaborated on a number of projects over the last many years. She is the ultimate professional and I find my clients love her style and her wonderful sense of color and texture. She takes the time to understand the clients desires and seamlessly creates a design that inspires them. As a contractor, I find she is one of very few designers I work with that prepare a proper and accurate set of construction documentation. We can feel comfortable that what she draws will actually work and believe me that is a rare find in today’s TV trained, homemade, undereducated pool of wannabe interior designers. Not only that, she’s a gem to work with and communicates superbly. Thanks Louise, I look forward to developing many more cool projects with you.The Remodel Group, Colleague
I worked with Louise Farrar-Wegener and Z3 Design Studio on a remodel of a townhouse condominium. It is a one level cottage style townhouse – attached on one side. We did a total interior remodel. Louise’s ideas and knowledge were invaluable. I loved working with her and have recommended her to several friends. She is conscientious and provided detailed designs and sensible options in a timely manner. In addition, she was always considerate of my budget. She worked closely with the contractor and his subcontractors.ctscott123, Client
Z3Design Studio did a wonderful job for us. Louise listened to our needs and met or exceeded every one of our expectations. The project was completed on time and within budget, and was beautifully done. I would hire this firm again and most strongly recommend the to any one looking for design services of superior quality.reservecop55, Client
Louise was a pleasure to work with on our master bathroom remodel. She suggested a large format gray tile for the shower that we used as a starting point for the rest tile and granite we selected for the bathroom. She also created the design for the cabinet layout and worked with me on the tile layout. It turned out beautiful. After the bathroom was completed, she came over and worked with me on completing the look using items I already owned and helped me create a list of items to finish the room.rmisustin, Client
Louise is a delight to work with. She was able to talk with us to get an idea of what we might like, present us with several options without overwhelming us and execute the plan. She took our nebulous ideas and turned it into the style we did not know we were looking for. She was able to mix our old with some new to look great but not like we just had every thing done over, even though that is what was going on. Even after she was done, she had provided us with the principles to decide what to add or change so that it all still fits beautifully. It has been over a year and family and friends are still complementing us on the house.
Thank you Louise!fleurym, Client
We are extremely pleased with the design work Z3 Design did for us. Louise was able to understand how we live and then create the perfect design for our kitchen, family room, living room and dining room to fit us. She gave us excellent ideas and options and ultimately a very efficient and beautiful space. Throughout the process she was easy to work with and very conscientious about making sure we understood everything and could make very informed decisions. She always had the plans ready when they were needed and kept a good eye on the contractors to insure things were understood and completed as specified. I would not hesitate to recommend Louise and Z3 Design and have on several occasions.zhimi, Customer
I have Louise at Z3 design to thank for a perfect kitchen, one that fits the style and soul of my 1940s home, while offering thoughtful conveniences like space-efficient custom cabinets, an extra cutting board and a built-in wine rack.
Louise is a professional: I found her available, communicative, and full of cool ideas. She had a vision, but any time I didn’t understand or saw it differently, we were always able to discuss and work towards a solution. She never missed a design deadline, and always made sure our contractor and his subs had what they needed to stay on schedule. I also appreciated how her experience with all things remodeling meant we could watch costs in some areas so we could splurge in others.
We are thrilled with our beautiful new space. I highly recommend Louise and Z3.justjennpdx, Customer
