3 Reviews for Lorna Saunders Interiors
Short version: I would highly recommend Lorna to any individual or firm. She is a professional and knows her craft well. She really cares about her clients and truly listens to you, thus she is able to produce the look and feel you're after. Lorna has a vision in mind, after careful consideration of what your needs are, and combined with her knowledge and skills, she is able to incorporate exactly what you wanted even though you may not have known what that was at the outset. For more details... I have been following Lorna's work for quite some time. Even before she officially became an Interior Designer, while working as a Computer Graphics artist, she managed to turn a simple basic apartment or house into a work of art with her unique design and decorating skills. Whenever we were invited over for dinner parties, hers was the house to be admired. This ensued in her home in Santa Barbara as well as San Francisco. It doesn't surprise me Lorna naturally moved from CG artist to having her own Interior Design firm. My friends and I always admired her work and wondered how she was always able to balance the right touch of class with functionality; however, she did, and we always felt comfortable in her homes, and at the same time, felt like we were in a beautiful show room. Naturally when I bought my next home, a condo, I immediately thought of Lorna. I called to see if there was anyway she could do the work, seeing as she was living in Palm Beach, but commissioned on a job in California at the time. I also had this ridiculous timeline of about 2 weeks from the closing of my condo to when the movers were arriving. She managed to free up her schedule even though it meant working back to back 18 hour days or more so she could be in Toronto for my closing. She arrived that evening and we had 2 weeks to transform my living room, dining area and the 2 bedrooms. It was a huge feat, but Lorna kept us on track and was able to work with my budget. There were the usual delays like the carpenter starting later than predicted, or supplies weren't available, but Lorna took care of every problem and stayed professional throughout it all. I didn't realize what all was involved in interior design, but Lorna was very patient with me throughout. There's more work to be done after the initial 2 weeks, the next stage, but I am so pleased with everything Lorna has accomplished to date. Now my friends tell me I have the 'show room' home.

I've hired Lorna as a design assistant on several interior design projects of mine.
Lorna's understated and sophisticated interiors merge high style with comfort and function. Her methodical approach to any project or design challenge result in excellence! She is particularly gifted in designing the logical environment with great ease and a focused attention to materials, textures and forms. Lorna's pursuit for "just the right" interior element(s) bring forth refreshing and capable hands to any client or project fortunate to work with her. Having collaborated with Lorna on several south Florida projects - It is with true conviction and delight to recommend Lorna Saunders Interiors wholeheartedly! Adelene Keeler Smith
Ms. Saunders designed and executed a floor-to-ceiling renovation project on my house. Her design skills are astonishingly wonderful. She played to the existing modern bones of the house, while making the most of the space available. Her knowledge of not just beautiful and resilient surfaces but also of construction and code was tremendous, because of which, she earned the respect of the trades and kept the project on track. Her attention to detail is unsurpassed, she sweats the details and the more I live in the space, the more I appreciate that attentiveness. She traded off within my budget to cleverly use commodity box-store shelving behind laminated cabinet doors to develop a magazine-worthy kitchen at a fraction of the comparable european kitchen store prices. At many times during the project, she made suggestions I was at first resistant to, but as the project progressed, and she was proved correct again and again that I and the builders developed a mantra of "Trust the Lorna" when decisions on color, surfaces, materials, layout or a myriad of other options were suggested by her. I'm not a designer, I can't see the end picture. She did. It was such a relief, surprise and joy to have her skills applied like that. Maybe I'm gushing a bit, but I am so happy every single day when I come home and open the door to my beautifully designed retreat from the world. Compared to where it started, she saw this end product and got me there. I can't recommend her highly enough.
