I really love working with Lynne! She is ridiculously talented as well as understands the process of the interior design process which can be challenging at time. My clients have always been "wowed" by her installations and that response it the only response I like to receive.:) We have worked together on Pacific Heights estates as well as pro bono projects for charity. If you looking to work with the Best in the Business, hire Lynne.

Lynne is amazing, talented, entertaining, interesting, and has incredible style! She is super creative, but is also rooted in traditional processes. I highly recommend her services.

Lynne helped me resurrect the interiors of an 1917 Albert Farr designed home in Piedmont. The project included utilizing her beautiful glazing, waxing and faux bois techniques. We were especially pleased with the transformation of the Conservatory into a limestone masterpiece! Thanks so much Lynne. Maria Tenalia Maria Tenaglia Design
