I have worked with Gina on several projects now. One of the reasons I work with Living Solutions is that I see all the pulled together looks from various retail and designer publications and stores, yet I cannot pull it all together myself and apply it to my space, to make it my own. I also struggle with the spatial elements, color and mixing styles that Gina does so well. I love that she incorporates things that I have as well as new things to give it that updated look I want. Any home has some unique characteristics about it, and my home was no exception. I loved that Gina brought me all kinds of solutions with varying price ranges to solve my design challenges. I only trust Gina for all my color and fabric selections. She is timely, detailed and accessible for questions, with mad design skills and talent that make her just amazing! I also appreciate a practical approach. That's so important to incorporate into making a home livable. We love the finished rooms and feel so comfortable in them, from the mixture of glass and wood to the furniture style and design to the fabrics, to the window coverings, right down to the accessories. We receive so many compliments on our home. Living Solutions is my exclusive designer!

When my husband and I decided to remodel our kitchen, I was overwhelmed with all the choices I would need to make so I contacted Gina. At our first meeting, I told her the “look” I wanted for my kitchen. She totally got it and make the whole process fun and easy. She was happy to shop with me or on her own. I quickly realized I was happy with her doing the legwork and then presenting me with a few options to choose from. I especially loved how she broke it down for me so that I could focus on each detail separately like lighting, window treatments, etc. She gave me new ideas to create the light, airy feel I was looking for and the end result is exactly what I wanted. It is my favorite room in our home!

I have worked with Gina on many projects now, including 4 houses and our business. Gina knows how to make a house a home. She turned my house that I didn’t enjoy, into a dream retreat for my family and me. Now we never want to leave, we enjoy our home so much! Working with Gina is a real joy. Not only is she beyond talented, she is easy to work with, and listened to what I was wanting. She has a handpicked team of talented, reliable, and valuable contractors. This made for an enjoyable experience. At all times, I felt comfortable and confident having workers in my home. She has made it possible to once again call a house a home! Looking forward to our next project!!! Thank you, Gina!

We are very happy to write this recommendation for Gina. We have worked with Gina on various home projects for over 9 years now! She has helped us pull together our living room and dining room, decorate our guest bedroom, and choose outside house paint colors. Our biggest project she helped us with was a major remodel of our kitchen, family room, and 2 bathrooms. We had a clear vision of what we wanted for our remodel. Gina listened to our ideas and helped us reach that vision. With her broad knowledge of fabrics, flooring, carpet, paint etc. she provided options to achieve our dream. And as important, her connections within the field (i.e. electrician, plumber, general contractors, tile suppliers, etc.) were extremely valuable. The journey to our remodel dream was so much more enjoyable with Gina’s assistance. Thanks so much Gina.

Gina is wonderful at understanding our needs, who we are, and how we live, in order to make the space reflect us. She has completely worked at our pace and with our needs - it's come together as a great place to be!
Living Solutions was the 2nd interior designer that I consulted with. I knew immediately my search was over. Gina stepped right in, asking questions, to learn our lifestyle, criteria etc. She then offered suggestions of small changes in our living room/dining area and master BR and presented us with ideas/samples of window treatments, decor and furniture. Fast forward a few months, and we are absolutely delighted with our new look. Gina made it so fun and easy. She always quickly responded to questions via email. If you are considering soliciting a professional designer, I highly recommend Living Solutions!
Moving to a new home from a different city was a challenge--we had to merge and blend different styles and some existing furniture pieces and accessories into a modern and cohesive design. With Gina's help, we are now living in a lovely, inviting space that fills all our needs and desires. Gina is not only a talented, organized, and creative designer but also a fun, warm, and generous person. One of her many talents is deciphering her client's tastes and style and turning them into a shared vision. We loved working with Gina and highly recommend her without reservation.
Working with Gina was a wonderful experience from start to finish. She is an extremely talented designer and her project management skills are superb. Gina has such a pleasant manner and a sense of humor. Both of which are much needed in any remodeling project. Thank you so much for helping us remodel our bathrooms! We could never have done it without you! I can't wait to do another room with Gina.
LOVE Gina!! She has been guiding us through many decorating, space planning and remodels for over 10 years. She has such an even keeled approach. No drama - Ever! Great ideas, execution and follow through. And my husband really likes her....he hasn‘t thought much of previous design people we worked with. Would highly recommend her!

I've worked with Gina on several projects and one of the things I love about her is that she is great at incorporating my own pieces, as well as new pieces, into the design. She is really great at listening and is quick with problem solving!
