From our very first meeting we knew Agni was the right fit for the work we wanted done. It started with a kitchen renovation but ended up being so much more. Agni is very professional in all aspects from suggesting designs to handling contractors. Whenever we had questions or concerns, they were always dealt with promptly. We are planning additional projects and will again turn to APK Designs without hesitation.

Great taste. Was an integral part of the room layout / design, color scheme, furniture and fixture selections. Fun to work with, professional, knowledgeable, and all within budget!

Our first time using a professional to design our vision, a restaurant, could not have gone any better. Agni was professional, conscientious, and met deadlines. She handled any hurdles with poise and was very thorough in her communications. 
I would definitely recommend APK Designs for home, office and business. We are thrilled with the results.

Ms. Agni Kyprianou was hired as the interior designer for my new restaurant and commercial bakery in Newtown, CT. She proved to be much more than just my designer. Agni handled all aspects of the project including architectural designs and acted as my General Contractor overseeing the entire project. Whilst I hired the plumber and electrician Agni proved to be an invaluable source for all the other contractors needed to complete the project. She was given the task to design a contemporary restaurant and bakery inside two historical buildings. She far surpassed my expectations, designing a bright, colourful interior, the likes of which has never been seen before in Newtown, CT. The buzz words I gave her to work with included, modern, hip, colourful, bright, conversational and boy did she come through. If you are looking for a designer who has it all, I have no hesitation in recommending this outstanding creative young lady. She is easy to work, always available and full of great advice and ideas. The greatest thing about Agni is that you can just let her run with your vision.

Working with Agni was a blessing! I am intimidated by decorating and not even sure what my style is. Agni asked all the right questions to help me figure out what I like and how I desired to use the space I wanted renovated. Her design ideas were classic and inspired me to have a vision (see the before and after pics). Her professionalism, patience, and calm demeanor allowed me to relax and enjoy the process. The quality of the work was so outstanding that I hired her contractor to do more renovations! Agni is thorough, organized, and trustworthy. I wouldn't go with any other designer!

We found Agni of APK Designs to be very professional and courteous. Her talent and eye for detail is amazing. We love our new family room because it is not only beautiful but is functional as well. She took the time to listen and address all our concerns. For example, lighting was a huge problem for us. Agni created a well coordinated interior with ample lighting and comfy furniture for reading. We love her work and can't wait to have her back for more improvements in our home.

We hired Agni to help us with the redesign of our Master Bedroom. Her knowledge, design style and great customer service have been excellent! She took time to listen to our wish list and we immediately loved her proposed design. When implementation came, she always took the time to explain whenever we had questions and offer alternate options. We recommend Agni for any project and we can't wait to have her back for our kitchen renovation next year!

I would describe Agni in three words - responsive, customer-oriented, and tasteful. My renovation project included 2 complete bathrooms and painting of every interior room in a very tight timeline and budget. After we met and discussed what I like from a design perspective, she helped me pick and provided options for tiles, countertop, bathroom hardware, paint color, lights, mirrors, etc. Through the project, she was very timely in responding to my questions and offered alternatives if her initial suggestions did not meet my needs. Agni was very easy to work, and she was aligned with what I was trying to achieve for my project. In the end, I am very happy with the service that she provided and I love the colors in my house and my two new bathrooms!

Agni was a true polished professional. She was a wealth of ideas and helped us navigate through the bathroom remodeling process. She worked well with my contractors - the demolition crew, my master carpenter, my electrician & my tile layer. Agni recommended a superior plumber too. She patiently took the time to explain her vision and make sure it was in line with what we wanted. She helped me select the tile and designed a gorgeous design on the floor as well as 2 in-wall niches - 1 in the shower and 1 next to the bathtub. 

All in all, the project was a phenomenal success and I attritube that mainly to Agni's expertise and focus. I would highly recommend her for other projects.

We hired Agni of APK Designs to help us renovate our master bath. She was truly amazing through the whole process. She met with us to see what we wanted and then helped us select all the materials, did drawings for the general contractor to follow and visited the project on a regular basis to see that everything was going smoothly once construction begun. She oversaw the entire project from start to finish and was always available to answer our questions or find solutions to whatever came up. We love our new bathroom and highly recommend Agni for any project big or small. She is a very talented designer and a true professional!

This work involved the complete remodeling of a half bath on the main floor. New tile, a new sink and vanity, new lighting, a new mirror, paint and molding were all selected and purchased by Agni. The project was on time and within budget. Furthermore, it was a pleasure to work with Agni especially since she coordinated all aspects of this work, including scheduling with the various trades and finding all of the materials and components required for such a job. The work site was neat and the work was completed in a timely manner. It was / is a great success.

We hired APK Designs to help us pick drapes for our dining room and living room. We found Agni's service very professional. She was more then helpful in helping us not only pick out styles that fit our house but that fit our likes and kept everything within our budget. She was very flexible and always worked around our schedules. We were very satisfied with the services APK Designs provided, and would highly recommend!

I am a kitchen & bath designer who works with many interior designers and architects, but whenever I am asked for a recommendation I seem to always refer Agni of APK Designs. Agni has an excellent eye and always seems to come up with a very functional but unique design. I have done several projects with Agni and I always learn something new from her. She is the consumate professional, from the initial client meeting through design, to completion. She has the ability to tune in to the wants and needs of the client and she always brings out the best in me. I think she is the definition of a great interior designer, and that's why I will continue to refer her.

We hired APK Designs for our master bathroom complete remodel. After our initial consultation, Agni provided us with a design that perfectly captured our style and desires. She lead us through the entire process from material selection to screening contractors. Agni was very patient with us as we weighed optiones for colors, fixtures, window treatments, and accessories. We are so pleased with our new bathroom and APK Designs, that we will use Agni again in the future. Very talented and a delight to work with.

As a general contractor I have worked with APK Designs on a number of projects. Agni is a talented professional who is devoted to her work. She always gives great attention to her clients as well as her projects and has a keen eye for detail. Her construction drawings are clear, well drafted and easy to follow. She is great at helping me coordinate certain phases of a project with the client and vendors. I highly recommend Agni for any project because she always works hard at anything she undertakes regardless of size or budget. Again, her attention to detail, & organizational skills, is unparalleled!

We called in APK Designs when we decided our restaurant needed a small facelift. Our dining walls were painted in deep red and even though we liked the look for a long time we were ready for a drastic change. Agni suggested colors that were appropriate for an Italian family restaurant. She replaced the deep reds with sunny yellows, medium olive greens and accents of deep browns. The transformation was amazing.The lighter colors made the space feel larger but yet cozy and inviting.We have received many compliments from our customers. We never thought that just changing a color scheme could have such an impact, but we have actually noticed an increase in sales as well as an increase in the number of people who choose to dine in (compared to the same time last year). We are very happy with Agni's work. She was professional, understood the challenges of the space and worked closely with my husband to address our concerns and expectations. Agni has already given us some great ideas for increasing our seating space and improving the lighting so we have decided to hire APK Designs for the larger renovation we are planning to have in the near future.

My husband is a Pediatrician and his office was in great need of a redesign. APK Designs helped us turn a dated reception area and office into a colorful, happy and functional space. Agni helped us select upholstery materials, furnishings and wall coverings that are appropriate for a doctor's office, not only colorful but durable as well. We are very happy with the level of service and attention we received from APK Designs and we look forward to working with them again.

Agni is a by far the best designer that we ever worked with! She tackled the family room in our center hall colonial house. The room has been very difficult to decorate in the past because of the high ceilings and multiple doors and windows. The fireplace provided a focal point but all of our previous furniture felt wrong and uncomfortable. We had worked with several design professionals in the past that left us disappointed. 


Agni recommended a dark, rich wall color that warmed the room, she provided us with a simple design that really works, she helped us shop for the furniture and accessories and put the room together beautifully. We have spent more time in the room in the last 2 weeks than in the previous 10 years! The room now works for watching TV, reading and sitting by the fireplace which where our main 3 goals. 


Through the whole project Agni listened to what we wanted, was infinitely patient with us, guided us to make choices that where a little out of our more traditional comfort zone but really worked in the room! 
We enjoyed working with her so much that we are plan.

"Working with Agni of APK Designs was both a positive and productive experience. Agni has great vision and understands the flow and dynamics that are critical to a successful layout. She worked closely with us to discover an optimal layout in a challenging space for our kitchen renovation and we are excited to see it come to fruition as we start construction this summer".

"Agni was wonderful both inside and out. She not only came up with beautiful ideas for the outside of our house, her sense of color and style brought both pop and warmth to the inside. I cannot begin to describe how different everything looks and feels. Agni was always available, whether it be questions regarding paint color, rugs, furniture or artwork. She helped us turn a house into a home".

"Recently we had the opportunity to work with Agni Pavlidou Kyprianou on the renovation of our master and hallway bathrooms in our home. We would like to express our appreciation for the excellent service that Agni provided. At the start of this project Agni designed, and presented to us, several possible designs for our consideration. Our project was challenging because we wanted to keep some of the existing structure in place. We wanted the rooms to “not look renovated” but to join together seamlessly. Agni made all of the site visits to select materials, coordinated the contractors work, visited the site daily, maintained the budget and ensured that the project was completed in a timely manner. Working with Agni on this project was a very enjoyable experience. The results were extremely successful, and both of us are pleased with the bathrooms".

"I compared several designers through an online home designer search service. Agni of APK Designs was the only designer that offered a one-price package. As I myself own a consulting company, I know that a package price is much more reasonable, especially with such a potentially open-ended situation. It means Agni trusts the homeowner to be reasonable, and that's the kind of designer I want to trust. Professionally, she has a keen eye and a talent for agreeable and functional aesthetics. Our goal was to make design choices for a significant renovation and decorate the house in order to make the home as appealing as possible for the housing market. We had budget constraints and a clear goal. I felt both were met admirably. Agni worked with us on scheduling visits, made many trips, even though she was quite a distance from us, and was adept at conveying decisions through email and phone".

"We own a 1974-built Adirondack contemporary which we bought 2 years ago. We were in the midst of planning a renovation of the entire exterior - siding, roofing, insulation, windows, skylights, doors, patio, decking - when our architect "flaked" on us and abandoned the project. We approached Agni about taking over the project and finishing the "last few details" from the previous architect's plan. Rather than simply finishing the previous plan, she pointed out design flaws within it; specifically the use of too many materials - and the wrong type of materials - for use in a modern home. 1 month before the contractors were due to arrive, we took Agni's advice, scrapped the plan from the high-priced Danbury-based architects, and started afresh with a design that she came up with from scratch. The result was awesome. Not only does it complement the "bones" of the original house far more the previous plan did, it came in almost $20,000 cheaper! Not to say that it scrimped on materials - but it used premium materials judiciously. The results are a tongue and groove cedar and hardie-reveal panel modern home that fits our wooded location in Weston perfectly. Agni is a dream to work with and a true friend."
