Victoria, Scott, and Jarrod did an exceptional job to our kitchen! We had a kitchen renovation go bad! The cabinets were so bad the paint was cracking and chipping off. We had them freshly painted 4 months prior to Free Spirit Designs redoing them. Our job was a lot of extra work for them. They had to re-sand and remove all the previous paint from the prior job. The previous painter decided not to sand in some areas and over sand and change the edges on other areas of the cabinetry. Scott painted planes in the Navy and has a great attention to detail. Scott and Jarrod worked very hard and made sure I was happy with them prior to being finished with them . I couldn’t love them any more! They look amazing! Free Spirit Designs take great pride in their work and guarantees their work. They also had to tear out my tile backsplash and reinstall it. It is a geometric pattern. The pattern is made of marble and is somewhat challenging to cut. Scott did a great job cutting and installing the pattern. The previous tile guys had over 40 pieces missing, the pattern laid upside down, and created their own patterns. Scott’s job looks like a professional job because Free Spirit Designs are professionals. Victoria communicates daily. She keeps you updated on when they will show up each day. She also checks in to make sure everything is going good with the project. Victoria reassured me they would take care of me and they definitely did! They turned my kitchen into a beautiful space. Everyone is super friendly and easy to talk to. Their prices are reasonable and came in lower than the tile guys who did the poor quality job. I highly recommend Free Spirit Designs. I wish I would’ve met them sooner! I will definitely be using them for future projects. Thank you Free Spirit Designs!
I just finished my second project using Free Spirits Designs. She created boards and was so patient and always listened to my feedback. Victoria truly exceeded my expectations. That can sound cliché but coming from somebody who was all in that my husband had reservations is saying a lot. My husband’s first words when he saw the room was “Wow! I really like it!” At first I thought he was joking and then I realize he wasn’t. I was thrilled! She is really good at her job! For anyone that is skeptical about the process, you should 100% give it a try. I am moving onto my next room. I can’t wait to work with her again on our next project!
Tory is so talented I could go on and on about her for days. She has done multiple rooms in my home and I have LOVED every one of them. Shopping for home decor is overwhelming to me because I don’t know scale or will it work etc. Turning over a room to her is so freeing. I am able to tell her a few thoughts I have and she is able to make the room come alive. I love that Tory is willing to try and reuse items in my home when possible. My living room was empty when she started and it is now my favorite room in my home. I love that she is willing to do a design board so I could be a little part of the process. I did not want to pick out any small items; however, I did want to help a little with the big items. I have never wanted to change anything Tory has done in my home in fact I take pictures so I can fix it when items move. She did my laundry room, such a tiny space and it is now a sweet pink mommy space. I smile each time I walk in my laundry room. Trust her to help with your spaces and I promise you won’t regret it. God truly gave her a talent and it was design.
Don’t look and further – hire this dinamic duo!!!! Free Spirit Design is the BEST company!!! Tori is an amazing decorator and has an eye for it ALL- super talented!!! Scott is can do it all- such perfection in all he did for us – backsplash, custom shelf’s, hanging lighting and hood range, and installed a huge farm style sink (even corrected an old plumers mistake). These two are the most honest and sincere people we have ever worked with!!!!
Victoria did an amazing job with what I used to call “The front room”. It was just a room full of toys and junk right at the front of the house. She transformed it into a beautiful kids living space. Every little detail was thoughtful and personal, all the way down to my children’s handmade artwork now featured in the heart of our home. I can’t wait to do more projects with Victoria!
Tory did an absolute fantastic job with our daughters room, from picking the right flooring to a great wall color all the way to picking super cute furniture and decor. On top of that she’s super easy and fun to work with, and the quality of her work (flooring and painting) is outstanding- the best I have seen.
All my life I’ve said that I thought my home looked like it was decorated by a kid. But when I moved into my new apartment, I gave Tory free will to make my apt into a beautiful home. She recycled and upcycled, painted furniture, painted walls, added accessories, gave me amazing wall galleries, and most important – she incorporated my style and likes into everything. Even down to a tree branch being my curtain rod for my bedroom! I’m proud of my home and love spending time in my spaces. My sister said it best when she came to visit for two weeks, “Spending time in your apartment is like being in a beautiful, vacation condo
Tory has a gift. She has a natural ability to make any space look amazing and she is so incredibly kind and fun. She truly cares about her customers, their budget, and their tastes. She is also a talented maker and has created custom pillows and lampshades for my home and did perfect work with attention to detail. She is fantastic at organizing and helped me figure out the best way to organize my pantry. She is fast–and I mean fast–but her efficiency never hurts her quality. Just such beautiful work and a beautiful soul. Wish she was still in North Carolina!
Free spirit design is amazing and Tory is very creative and great to work with.
I am so glad I chose Victoria with Free Spirit Designs to design and decorate four rooms in my house as well as help me choose wood flooring and paint colors. The design process was fun with Victoria available to answer questions and provide feedback along the way. The finish results are better than I expected and I truly love each space that she designed!
It is a blessing to work with Tory on any home project. She takes your goals and makes them a reality. She takes great care in maximizing your budget and utilizing anything you already have and love. She beautifully restores worn out pieces and creates unimaginable art. I am grateful for having her talent and vision in my home. Thank you Tory!
I am incredibly glad to have found a decorator and friend! Tory knows how to listen to a client’s needs and create a space that feels like home. Her attention to detail is a true talent. She works within a budget and never pressures to go beyond the comfort zone. SO thankful that she shares her talent with this community!
Tory is awesome! She really cares about her clients and their needs. She helped me stage my house to sell. I loved all her suggestions and my home is more beautiful than ever!! I would recommend Tory!
Victoria McCartney is one of the most creative people I have ever met. She is thoughtful and caring about her work to bring versatile designs to her clients. You can immediately tell when you meet her that she puts relationships first. I was nervous that she would see my incredibly cluttered home and be disgusted, but she said, “I never look unless invited.” I was also pleasantly surprised that no job is too small for her. She will do consults and help you create a concept for your space, or do a full install. She shops local, and always considers cost to keep you within your budget. If you are looking for an interior designer, look no further!
Tory has a natural talent for design and making your house look like a home. She loves what she does and that makes it so much fun to work with her. She has done several projects for me and never disappoints!
I have seen the beautiful, quality work from Free Spirit Designs. Victoria has a God given talent to see the beauty in everyday things that most miss. If you have a desire for the unique, she is your gal.
Tory, Scott, and Herb did an amazing job turning my boring two story wall into an amazing accent wall. Great communication as well. Would definitely use again for other projects!
I have known Tory and her skill and eye for decoration for 15 years. She is fantastically talented. She doesn’t disappoint. She works with your style and gives you a fresh, clean look. And her team is hands down the best around. You will be elated that you chose Free Spirit Designs for your job. No matter what size.
Victoria was the perfect answer to our design needs. She is creative, honest, and fun. Our house has almost all the finishing touches now inside and in the new pool area. Take a look at our pictures. We love it. Scott is also a jack of all trades and did a great job with our shiplap, painting, fans, lights, and even hanging our pictures. We love you guys.
Tori was amazing! I used her to consult with paint colors and a tricky foyer. She found perfect pieces and was very fun to work with.
Amazing !! They transformed our master bedroom last March to a beautiful retreat.. and we are still LOVING IT!! Just hung stockings from our farmhouse mantle!! PROFESSIONALS
Help transformed our house into our dream home. Very professional Highly recommended
Free Spirit Designs did a beautiful job on my kitchen and living room. Both spaces were transformed before my eyes! Tory, Scott & crew were a pleasure to have in our home. They work neatly and quickly, but pay close attention to detail. Looking forward to my next home improvement project. I will definitely be calling them!
Such a fantastic experience we had working with Tory!!! She devoted so much time to us as was always so responsive! She created such a beautiful space for us!!
Victoria was amazing from start to finish! She did a makeover on my fireplace and her father did a beautiful custom mantel for us as well. Very happy with their work!
Fabulous work by an amazing team. Talented, professional, and everything is done in excellence.
We just finished a project with Tory & Scott of Free Spirit Designs. We could not be more pleased with the quality of work. The attention to detail and craftsmanship were top notch. Anything they felt was not up to their standards was fixed before I even had to say anything. I did not know anyone personally who had used them but based my decision to move forward with them after reading their reviews and meeting them in person. I felt the advantage of using them was not only do you get their high quality of work but the design services of Tory. I knew I wanted to install shiplap in the dining room and around the island, but Tory selected the shiplap and picked the colors. The island is a navy blue that I am in love with! I highly recommend them for design services and your next project. I look forward to using them for our future projects!
Scott and Tory do amazing work!
I have to share how much I love the wall collage Tory did for me up my staircase..she showed me in the most creative way how to share my family photos and my kids art, in a way that I could add to in the future, without making it look “perfectly aligned”….it quickly became one of my favorite spaces in our home. Anytime I need a consult, or my hand held while I make decor decisions, I call Tory…sometimes it’s a big job, sometimes it’s small, she gives 110% no matter what. Love Free Spirit Designs!!

Tory and Scott did an amazing job transforming my boring wall into a beautiful focal point. Communication and customer service were excellent!!!
Tory is truly talented at her gifts in design. She listens and sticks with the budget that is comfortable for the client.
Victoria, Scott, and Herb (and their team) did an exceptional job for us in the renovation of an old home into a modern rental property. Victoria’s design ideas were excellent, and everything was executed on time and according to budget. Great job!
We never understood the hype of having an interior designer till we worked with Free Spirit Designs. The first two spaces we wanted help in were our dining room and our bedroom. We wanted a great space for our family dinners. My husband and I also wanted our bedroom to feel like a retreat. A place just for us to unwind from the day. After our consultation we knew we could count on Tory and her crew. She worked within our budget. We had communication throughout the process. We had lots of options on our design board to pick from. If there was something we didn’t care for, we simply told her what we didn’t like about the item or what we would prefer (I think it happened only on one item out of 20. Which is amazing and tells me how much she truly listens and knows her clients). She was quick to find something else and put it on our board. I was nervous! I have a hard time letting go and just “trusting the process.” However, I am glad I did because we were blown away! We could not have imaged the finish product if we even tried! It has been a year now and we still walk into our bedroom in awe of the transformation. Now we are having her help us with our patio and a gallery wall in our living room. Needless to say, we highly recommend her and her entire A team! If you want the best of the best, look no further than Free Spirit Designs.
Wow! We were soooo pleased with the job Victoria, Herb, and Scott did on our foyer! Years ago, I saw a board and batten concept in a hotel in Savannah and I took pictures of it and knew I wanted to put it somewhere in our new house. I held on to the pictures for over 3 years and asked Victoria if she thought it would work in our foyer. Her response was simply “absolutely!” I am so, so, so glad we found her. She is amazing at what she does and has a knack for keeping me calm when I get nervous about making decisions! She is the best! Herb and Scott are PERFECTIONISTS when it comes to details and that’s exactly what you want when you have woodwork being done.
Victoria also did an amazing job decorating our home for Christmas! She came over on a Monday to see what she had to work with and by Friday afternoon my whole house was transformed beautifully. She was able to use existing unique items we already had and pulled everything together! I don’t know how she did it so quickly! I can’t wait to put out her decorations year after year because I feel the items she chose are timeless and I will get a ton of use out of them!
Love Free Spirit Designs!!! I can’t say enough about this awesome company!! We had lived in my house 5 years with little paint change. Mainly because I was too afraid to pick the wrong color (like I did for the kitchen right after we moved in)! Tory not only did an amazing job painting but she helped me choose all of the colors and WOW!! I feel like we have a brand new house! Scott did a fantastic ship lap wall under the bar and it is perfect! He helped with several handyman items including seamlessly taking out those useless “builder grade” towel bars and tp holders! Check out the photos and then call them!! You will love it!
Free Spirit Designs is amazing! She truly listens to what you want, stays within your budget and communicates with you every step of the way. She could transition from my family room and dining room to my teenage daughter’s bedroom. I would highly recommend her and cannot wait to contact her again when my next house project needs complete.
Scott provided timely and quality service repairing and painting a bathroom, hanging a ceiling fan, and hanging photos. Victoria provided a design consultation that has enabled us to prioritize projects and see the design opportunities/choices in a fresh, new way. We look forward to our next project!
Victoria does the most amazing work! I am so happy with my room. She is so creative and inspiring!
Victoria with Free Spirit Designs is a natural talent. We absolutely love working with her not only because she has an intuitive design sense, but because she is adorable and professional. Her eye for detail is really what sets her apart – she sees the big picture but also all of the components that make for an interesting, comfortable, and well designed space.
She is our favorite designer in the area and the only one we would recommend.
Heart and soul into every job! My living room, dining room, and kitchen are so cheerful and balanced! You’ll love her infectious spirit! Tory also decorated my fitness studio by organizing and also displaying beautiful shelving and gallery walls. She even hangs and installs everything herself. You do nothing!!!
Thank you Vicotria for working with me to take my awkward living room space from boring and blah to inviting, functional and beautiful. It is now my favorite rooms in the house.
Since I was from up North, I was at a bit of a lost when I moved here…the colors, lighting and decor was so different than what I worked with up north. I felt totally out of my comfort zone.
I had not worked with a designer before and the thought of it was a bit intimidating to me, but you made me feel very comfortable. You were a great listener, interpreting what I was trying to accomplish, you knew that all I needed was a bit of help refining my vision and working with me to enhance it—it turned out better than I could have ever imagined.
Also, I loved that you recycled some of my favorite and special things and included them into the space.
I’m looking forward to working with you again.
I can not recommend Free Spirit Designs enough. Victoria took my fireplace wall vision, and far exceeded my expectations! Everyday Scott and Drayden showed up when they said they would be there, they worked hard while in our home, and left the area spotless at the end of everyday. They are truly perfectionists in their work, and do not leave until everyone (you and them) are 100% satisfied with your project. I will without hesitation use Free Spirit Designs for future projects!!
Free Spirit Designs is empowered by God and inspired by beauty and a passion to impact people’s lives and spaces. Tory is unbelievably talented. She has a gift for making spaces warm, inviting and incorporating personalized touches.
What a fabulous design experience we had with Tory and Scott! Tory spent time talking with me and listening to what I was hoping to accomplish with a facelift in a couple key rooms and areas in our home. By walking through our home and seeing our livable style, she thoughtfully selected window treatments, furniture, and decor that were perfect for our budget, taste, and goals while maintaining that personal touch. They did a wonderful install of shiplap for us as well! Would highly recommend them without hesitation for any and all your design needs. Thank you so much!
I cannot say enough positive and wonderful things about Tory, Scott and Free Spirit Designs! They do it ALL! I have hired them 3 times and each time it has been a stress free experience and my spaces looks amazing! I highly recommend FSD for ANY job big or small. She’ll even shop for you, help pick out paint colors, anything you need help with–really!! I plan to use FSD for other spaces and projects and I highly recommend!!
Everything Tory touches turns out amazing! I love to refer to the things she has done around our home as “Tory’s Touches!” They bring joy and warmth to our home. Inspired by her relationship with God, Tory brings beauty, joy and peace where ever she goes and whatever project she tackles.
Tory did a beautiful job on my outdoor patio area. It was so great to work with her. She really listened to me and made great suggestions. She made my patio feel like a resort getaway, and I love it!
Tory is amazing! She truly is a gifted designer. I am so sad she is not still in NC. You all in the Jacksonville area are lucky indeed. You will weep with tears of joy and amazement when she works her magic in your home!!!!
I have used Free Spirit Designs on approximately 10 projects over the past three years and with both residential and commercial properties. Ms. McCartney has a very keen eye and the ability to take a buildings existing style and add to it, so that it seamlessly integrates both old and new to bring together an amazing transformation.
Services I have used in the past include:
* Interior Design
* Paint Color
* Built Ins
* Shopping for Materials
* Window Treatments
There are probably other services I used, but needless to say that I have been very pleased with her professionalism and ability to perform on projects both big and small. Since some of my properties are out of the area, there are times that I have had to send video and pictures to her to get assistance, which is much harder than when she is on site, but she still performed extremely well. It is important to note that your priorities, become her priorities, so feel free to share with her your goals. If you only have a limited budget, which some of my smaller properties do, then she can work within that. Need to use natural wood products or want to move to more modern materials, then she can help you in that area too.
I cannot say enough about what a great experience working with Free Spirit Designs has been.
I just finished my third project using Free Spirits Designs and one that is still in progress. We hired Victoria to help us design a space that reflected some tranquility for our guest. Victoria truly exceeded my expectations. That can sound cliché but coming from somebody who was all in that my husband had reservations is saying a lot. My husband’s first words when he saw the room (through pictures 😊) was “Wow! I really like it!” At first I thought he was joking and then I realize he wasn’t I was thrilled! She is really good at her job! Victoria and Scott were so easy to work with, had great vision and creative ideas, paid attention to detail, masterfully managed all the moving parts and ensured that I would love the results…and I do. For anyone that is skeptical about the process, you should 100% give it a try. I hope that we don’t have to move anytime soon, but if we do, Victoria will definitely be helping us with our next place
Can’t say enough good things about Tory and Scott. Amazing and talented people who do fantastic work! So happy with the wall gallery Tory designed for us from existing family art pieces as well as the bedroom paint job they completed last week. I can’t wait for her to come back for the bedroom install to create a relaxing, restful space.
I am so excited that I have a beautiful kitchen!! Victoria and Scott did such a beautiful job. They really make sure everything is done and finished to your expectations. They pay attention to the details and are so neat. Please give them a try with any home remodel you have you will not be disappointed.
Free Spirit Designs did a great job on my kitchen cabinets! They darkened the cabinets for me and picked out gorgeous silver hardware to go with the new paint color. This makeover gave my kitchen just the clean, sleek look I was going for! I highly recommend Free Spirit Designs for any Interior Design needs!
I am so pleased with the beautiful space Victoria created in my home! Her attention to detail, thoughtfulness, and high quality of work are amazing. I feel like she really takes the time to understand her clients and what they want. I entrusted her with many of the decisions and her talent and vision came to life in a beautiful way. I would 100% recommend Victoria and Scott’s work to anyone.
Free Spirit Designs is amazing! She truly listens to what you want, stays within your budget, and communicates with you every step of the way. She could transition from my family room and dining room to my teenage daughter’s bedroom. I would highly recommend her and cannot wait to contact her again when my next house project needs complete.
Tory and Free Spirit Designs are AMAZING!! The process was seamless, and I am in love with our refreshed and finished bedroom! Highly recommend for any space you are looking to improve, finish, freshen!!
Tory created the most amazing bedroom for me with everything I love – Beach, hammock, pallet bed, and desk plus other cool accessories. Everyone loves my bedroom!
They did a fantastic job with adding wood panels around our kitchen island. Their price was good and their workers were polite and meticulous. I will use them again.
