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.

Furnishings

Choosing furnishings and accessories, as well as space planning can be some of the most difficult decisions to make, especially on your own. Getting the proportion, shape, and materials just right for your unique environment requires specialized support from experienced interior design and furnishing experts, like us!

Talking you through custom furniture and ready-made options, we recommend the best furnishing collections for you to enjoy for years to come. We also give you access to products directly from manufacturers through our buying group and we can work with renowned custom furniture manufacturers for more personalized options. 

It can be hard to visualize how your furnishings will work in real life. That’s why our interior designers create 2D designs to help you experience the walkways and furnishing placement unique to your space.  We can also create 3D visuals to give you a detailed look at how the furnishings work together in the space and interact with other elements, like paint colors, flooring, and accessories.

Testimonials

See what clients are sayingAbout us

"Design Lifestyles is an excellent organization to help with your remodeling and/or updating project.  My home is just as I envisioned.  Somehow they "read" my mind and delivered just what I wanted within budget.  

My friends love my home's new look.  I keep hearing words like "cozy", "fresh", "quality".  I couldn't have asked for a finer job.  Every time I walk in my house, I wonder if I have the correct address!

Thank you Kim, Lauren, staff, and contractors."

"We’ve hired Design Lifestyles for two rooms in our house now, and are very happy with both results. In each case, they were very receptive and responsive to our inputs and worked to be sure we got the design just right and to a place where we were comfortable with it. They also manage the procurement and install of furniture for one of our rooms and did an excellent job making that process easy and fun for us."

"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."

Susan Holdrich

"I recently had a complete kitchen and dining room gut/re-model, and I can't say enough good things about Kim Bailey and her team. From the first meeting to the final walk-through, she and her design team were responsive, attentive, and always there when I had a question or concern. The contractors they work with are top notch, as well. I highly recommend them and I will definitely use them for future projects."
