Interior design is more than decorating…
…it’s a plan that connects your needs and your desires to the function and look of your space. Design projects can be big or small, but one thing they share is attention to detail. You give me the big picture: what you like, how you want to use the space. I look after all the small details that make it come together.
Lenore’s expertise, ideas, talent and connections made a complex process infinitely more manageable.

A design experience
Client Steph Hunsberger describes working with Lenore:
I always felt that it would be too costly to hire an interior designer and I had not had the need for one until our latest project. We had a large L-shaped great room and we needed to incorporate 3 seating areas by using the furniture we already had and adding 2 new sofas. We did not want it to look overcrowded and this was a difficult task. Lenore worked easily with me to get the look that I wanted without changing it to not look like us. The end result was a very warm and inviting room with an area for conversation for 6, an area for TV watching and an area for quiet one on one conversation.
Lenore is very personable and calm and we worked together well. She listened to what I like and did not try to completely change my mind. She worked diligently and did not make me wait long for her suggestions which I welcomed. She has a good eye for colour combinations and you can tell that she loves her work. I am very glad I hired her.
