"I had a wonderful experience working with Design Lifestyles, and I love how they have transformed my home! Kim and Lauren are extremely talented and really good at discerning and respecting a client’s likes, dislikes and personal style.

I love how they presented me with options.   I could choose furnishings and materials, without being overwhelmed with too many choices.  It was fun, and it felt good to participate in the process of creating a pretty, cozy home for my family. Their attention to detail is amazing.  Every color, fabric, pattern and accessory is coordinated and intentional, without being too “matchy,” if that makes sense. I also have to say, Kim has a calm, reassuring demeanor that really helps in the midst of a remodel.

Kim and Lauren are kind, talented ladies, and they are a joy to work with.  Stephanie and Kelly are lovely to work with as well! Thank you, Design Lifestyles team! I hope I get to work with you again on future projects!"

"We absolutely LOVE Design Lifestyles!! Shortly after moving into our brand-new house, we had some an idea of how we wanted it to look inside.  However, we soon found ourselves extremely overwhelmed by all the options at our local furniture stores, along with the thousand of ideas from social media sites. To add to our challenge, we have 3 young children that keep us very busy throughout the week. We really needed some professional help, so we contacted Design Lifestyles. After our initial meeting with Kim, we knew we wanted to work with her.  Throughout the entire process, Kim really listened to our desires and took detailed notes of our vision.  She also challenged us to think through the process since we had never hired a design firm before. Kim brought a tremendous amount of creativity and suggested amazing ideas/layouts/colors that we never thought of or imagined we would love. She and her team were very professional, kind, upfront with expectations and on top every single detail of our project. On our reveal day, we were blown away by how Kim had turned our house into a beautiful warm and inviting HOME.  There is no way we could have ever done this without Kim’s expertise, hard work and commitment to her clients.  Our words of gratitude do not adequately express the joy we feel each day living in our new home.

We highly recommend Design Lifestyles to help anyone looking for assistance with your interior design needs. She is amazingly talented at what she does and is truly a treasure to work with.  Looking forward to working with her again in the future!"

"We had the opportunity to work with Design Lifestyles earlier this year to remodel our kitchen and fireplace wall.  I had been following these very talented women on Instagram for nearly two years so I was familiar with their design aesthetic and could not wait to finally have the chance to see them in action. Starting with a very comprehensive in home meeting we discussed what we loved and what we wanted to change in addition to our budget.  Based on this meeting and our Pinterest boards, they created two very thoughtful and gorgeous design renderings for our home. This is truly where the magic happened and we were blown away with their ideas from materials, fabric, and reworking the functionality of our kitchen. They provided us with a detailed budget and a work schedule that stayed on track.  We have never had a project that went as smooth as this.  The attention to detail from small gadgets to proper tile placement, was 100% handled by Kim, Lauren, and Kelly.  Let's talk about the contractors they hired for our project, every single one of them who bid and completed a job was truly a professional.  Not one person didn't show up or came late and we would happily work with anyone of these trades again.  There is so much value in hiring this talented team, we look forward to doing it again when we re-do our master bath. Thank you ladies for bringing the love of what you do to our home. We have enjoyed the new space immensely."
