“We recently purchased our home in a fabulous neighborhood knowing it needed a great deal of TLC. After moving in we quickly realized that the scope of work was too great for us to design and manage on our own.
On the recommendation of a colleague, we contacted Lori to walk us through all the phases and suggestions to meet our family’s needs with the hopes of turning it into the dream home we knew it could be. After two meetings we hired her to come up with a full set of plans. The creative process was more fun than we expected. We were instantly able to visualize what our home would soon look like. Needless to say, Lori was with us from beginning to end….through the construction process right down to the furniture and accessories.
P.S. 8 months later we finally have the home of our dreams! We still pinch ourselves every night and realize that our beautiful home was all due to Lori’s innate talent. Lori Gilder fulfilled our wildest dreams and then some. We are elated with the outcome!”
“Lori Gilder designed our home and it’s gorgeous! So gorgeous that people think it belongs in a magazine. Our home reflects our lifestyle to a tee and gives us a great sense of pride. We weren’t always the easiest clients to work with, but Lori was there listening and guiding us every step of the way. The initial designs and drawings were meticulous. Her attention to detail was only matched by her ability to listen to our needs and actually implement them. We entertain often and I love to cook, so it was critical that our home have a showcase open kitchen area. It’s a spectacular space that is the hub of our home. I can’t wait to get started on our beach house!”
“We purchased our home from a builder when it was almost complete. It was very plain and lacked personality. Lori completely changed the plans for the kitchen layout to better suit the space. Years later it remains the most practical, functional and beautiful kitchen in our neighborhood. Lori also used her expertise on other rooms throughout the house. She was able to envision what would work best for a growing family, and we continue to enjoy our house immensely. Her work is top quality and timeless. In fact it’s time to work on another phase of our home.”
“Lori Gilder has a remarkable talent in architecture and design, a combination not often found in the search to find a perfect fit when designing a home. Lori was able to take an outdated 1970’s beach front condo and create a contemporary loft with warmth and grand appeal. It provided us with a bright fun space during the day, and a very dramatic atmosphere at night. It was as if we had two different homes rolled into one. Lori easily shifts from working with contractors speaking their language, to the world of color and design making planning an ease for a home owner. Her overall sense of space seems to miraculously add square footage. We would recommend Lori to anyone.”
“Lori Gilder is the sole reason we are so happy with our house. She has what I can only describe as a true gift for planning and design. Her use of space alone is remarkable. Before the remodel we were in a 1,500 sq. ft. house and bursting out of the seams. On the same footprint we now have a beautiful 2,900 sq. ft. home that feels like 4,000 sq. ft., receives jaw-dropping accolades from friends and family, and is very much a fit for the neighborhood. The design features and style Lori created are practical and appropriately elegant in their own right. What matters most is that we now have the home we wanted. Lori listened and understood how to design for our lifestyle. Most significantly we have room to live and enjoy, a tremendous feeling of pride in our home, and a place where each family member loves to be. Thanks to Lori we simply could not be happier.”
“We retained the services of Lori Gilder several years ago to assist us with an extensive renovation of our house. It involved a full scale construction of a second story replete with 4 children’s bedrooms, new children’s bathrooms, and a fabulous master suite. Not only did the finished product delight us beyond our expectations, but perhaps as significant, was the pleasure we derived in dealing with Lori. Her skill, her creativity, her warmth and her total understanding of our family’s needs comforted us through what could have otherwise been a very stressful several months. She was the perfect liaison between the trades and the suppliers, and all matters were dealt with smoothly and professionally.
We could not ask for a better person to work with to assist us in making our home an elegant and functional living space. I would highly recommend Lori to anyone who is contemplating building or renovations of this magnitude. She is the perfect mix of talent, diplomacy, skill and commitment.”
“Lori Gilder is a truly talented Interior Designer. She is in a league of her own. Lori was able to take our crude conceptual ideas and transform them into a wonderful remodeled home. Before we began working with Lori, we were living in a house which had a different shade of pink in virtually every room, with a hodgepodge of styles throughout. With her constant focus and attention to every detail of our 4000 sq. ft. house, she was able to transform it into an incredibly comfortable, warm and inviting home. Lori was responsible for all facets of the design and construction process, and was always available to discuss every nuance of our project. Her visions were practical, stylish and a perfect fit for our home and family. If you are looking for a top quality Interior Designer……and want to take great pride in your home, look no further.”
