Let’s Get To Know Lori!
What made you want to pursue a career in design?
I have always enjoyed looking at homes and thinking of ways to increase potential through improved design—changes that could make a big impact on the home. I felt the calling to work with homeowners to help them fall in love with their home at its best!
What inspires your design style most?
My design style is driven by what I love and pieces that catch my eye…and I’m obsessed with function. I spend time researching and reading on trends but honestly don’t follow the trends precisely, I like to add a different twist.
What is one of your favorite EH Design projects to date?
My favorite projects include the Home-a-Rama home we did at Holliday Farms and the model home at Jackson Grant. I love how clean and simple these designs were, allowing so much natural light to enter each room. We also scaled back on heavy trim for more of a Scandinavian feel, and the cafe’ appliances were a standout in the Jackson Grant kitchen.
What is your current favorite design trend?
I am all about texture!
In my free time, you can find me…
Usually spending time with my 7 grandkids! I like to travel a lot too, and hang out with my mini golden doodle anytime I can.
To learn more about Lori, check out her many fabulous Houzz reviews, like this one:
“We met our Everything Home designer Lori early in our build. We walked into our first round of selections with an overwhelming list of decisions to make, but Lori had samples ready and made the process fun. Almost a year later, we are nearing the completion of our build and Lori has been with us every step of the way. She has helped us find our style and ensured the continuity of our build.
We have been so impressed with Lori’s support and beautiful designs that we decided to also work with her to furnish our new home. Her ideas and recommendations have helped us to create our own look and she has literally saved us more than enough to cover the design fees.
Lori also took the time to teach us about design and we learned so much from her. Her professionalism and positive relationships throughout the industry also helped us during the selections process. She is an asset to the Everything Home team and getting to know her has been one of the highlights of building.
From beginning to end, Lori and Everything Home have helped our new home become our dream home!”
