Interior design that stands the test of time

Designing beautifully functional homes, personalized for you

Design Lifestyles is a true one-stop shop for interior design that takes you through a seamless journey from design to installation. Stemming from real-world experience, we understand life’s challenges, and how to design an aesthetic that responds to them in surprising ways. 

For every interior design project, we create a turn-key experience – with scheduling and ordering every material, furnishing, and accessory before work starts, so that we can streamline your project, minimize delays, and keep everything running smoothly.

New construction & remodeling services

During the consultation and design phases, our interior designers develop a close relationship with you to personalize every aspect of your design, ensuring each detail works for maximum usability and your unique personality, lifestyle, and vision. We help guide you, so you don’t say “I WISH we did that 6 months ago!”

Having us on board from the very beginning helps you avoid potential expensive design mistakes and ensures your home isn’t just beautiful, but perfectly functional for your life. Clients always remark that we offer solutions they would never have thought about, but make an incredible difference in their day-to-day lives.

With experience building and remodeling numerous houses over the past 18+ years, we know that a design for a family with young kids will be very different from a bachelor’s high-rise apartment or a commercial space. Experiencing every housing market since 2005, we help you maximize your home’s value.

Testimonials

See what clients are saying about us

"My husband and I interviewed three design firms to remodel our kitchen and master bath. We wanted both projects to run simultaneously & we had a general idea of what we wanted. After spending an hour with Kim and Lauren Bailey, our decision was made. Kim and Lauren give professionalism a new definition and yet working with them was relaxed and actually fun. We were presented with a budget & timeline for each project. The budget covered each expense and KBI was very conscious of our budget, making sure we stayed on track. The contractors recommended by KBI were simply the best.

Kim and Lauren were with us every step of the remodel and their eye to detail was unsurpassed.  We are thrilled with the results. Our kitchen and master bath are simply beautiful. The results far exceeded our expectations.

We highly recommend Design Lifestyles."

Gayle Lind

"Kim Bailey has the qualities an interior designer is supposed to have - artistic ability, creativity, and visualization.  But she and her team at Design Lifestyles have more than that -  they are passionate, caring, problem solvers too.  We simply could not be more pleased with the result of our collaboration with Kim and her team.  But the process is important too.  We engaged Kim Bailey interiors in February of this year. From the beginning Kim and her team worked with us to understand what we wanted. They worked diligently to present ideas to bring it all together. They were responsive to our many questions and  comments often sent at odd times of days, nights, and weekends. And, when we started this project, there was not a pandemic, but it hit while we were underway.  Kim and  her  team managed it all – from changes in orders, to receivers to movers and installers - all with uncanny precision and a sense of calm.

In the end, our new contemporary home is stylish, fitting of our desires and our personality and within the budget we outlined at the start. I checked all 5 stars and every box above because Design Lifestyles is deserving of it."

Jim Grau

"Kim Bailey and Lauren Bailey Rude are amazing designers. We have worked with them on a number of projects at our home and we have been so pleased with everything they have done.  Their eye to detail is unmatched. We highly recommend Design Lifestyles for all your decorating needs."

Billie Lind

"We absolutely LOVE Design Lifestyles! After our initial meeting with Kim, we knew we wanted to work with her. Throughout the process, Kim really listened to our desires and took detailed notes of our overall vision. 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 Kim Bailey Interiors. Kim is amazingly talented at what she does and is truly a treasure to work with!"

Angela H.

"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!"
