What Our Clients Say



I met Gerry Burge 20 years ago when she had her Allenbrooke location on Main Street in Alpharetta. It was a tiny hole in the wall on Main Street. I went in because I thought it was a "fabric store" and wanted to get some ideas for a duvet cover. I was completely blown away by the quality of the fabrics that Allenbroke carried. I picked out a beautiful fabric in a deep royal blue and asked the sales person, who turned out to be the owner, Gerry Burge, for her opinion. She loved it, but, she wanted to know what else I had plannned - maybe, a coordinating color for the other side so that I would have 2 duvets in one, what about the trim? Had I thought about pillow shams, dust ruffle, etc. Of course I had not thought of any of these, so Gerry patiently walked me thru it all. In our initial conversation, we talked for over an hour during which time she discretely asked how much I wanted to spend. At the time, I didn't have much money, but she picked and showed me things that were within my budget. She also showed me how I could afford 1 piece of outrageously expensive fabric that I fell in love with, by using it only as a trim, etc. 

That was over 20 years ago. Since then, I have called on her many times for several different homes. I learned to trust her judgement and seek her guidence whether it was for simple fabric for pillows, etc. or (as,recently) to fly to Florida to get consulting and guidence on a number of things, including paint colors, furniture fabric, window treatment - etc. the whole enchilada. She always trys to work with my ideas but, will also tell me truthfully if I picked out something that just won't work. Gerry has a world of decorating knowledge and a keen eye on what works in a particular situation. It just bubbles out on every observation. In addition to Gerry's decorating knowledge, I have also found a friend.
