"Lauren helped us with a complete home remodel of our 1983 contemporary style home. This was a complete gut down to the bare studs. She assisted in all phases of design from room design, color, texture of walls, stone, tile, window coverings, furniture, rugs, art work, etc. Easy to work with and figured out our contemporary taste and was always available. She always gave us three ideas to choose from which was very much appreciated. Her fees were fair and we would definitely use her again."

"In one week we move back into our Lauren Brandwein designed remodeled home. Wow! I have the home of my dreams thanks to Lauren."
"From the first meeting 6 months ago, working with Lauren has been a true pleasure, in fact even fun. Lauren listened closely to my ideas, and then magically brought to fruition everything I wanted and more. Honestly, I think I have the most beautiful kitchen I have ever seen.
The construction process went very smoothly, in a large part due to Lauren's detail working drawings, knowledge of construction and codes, and her excellent communication skills. For these reasons our contractor was delighted to be working with Lauren again. Also, Lauren remained involved and very accessible through out the construction phase.
In my opinion Lauren is a gifted designer. I am indebted to the friend who recommended her. And I would enthusiastically recommend Lauren to anyone."

"We recently purchased a home that was in need of updating and a kitchen remodel. I found Lauren on Houzz and from the first phone call and initial meeting, we knew she was a perfect fit for our needs. She was highly professional and very timely. She has outstanding relationships with local resources and other industry professionals, making finding the perfect subs and products, very easy. When talking with local vendors and people that have worked with Lauren, they all have great respect for her, her style and her work ethic. Her eye for detail and for what is not only stylish and hip but timeless as well, is impeccable. She walked us through the daunting process of selecting a totally redesigned kitchen, cabinets, hardware, lighting, flooring, colors, windows, and so much more. We move in our new house in just days and I can hardly wait! It looks stunning, functional and stylish! We would definitely use Lauren again and would recommend her to anyone."

"It was truly a pleasure to work with Lauren Brandwein! She is highly creative and knowledgeable. She truly listened to our ideas for our dream kitchen and was also sensitive to our budget. Lauren not only designed a beautiful, functional kitchen for us, but guided us through and facilitated the entire project. She always made herself available when we had questions or when there were decisions to be made regarding details in the plan that we simply had not considered. We love our new kitchen and are inspired to remodel other spaces in our home and will definitely hire Lauren to design and facilitate those future projects!"

"As general contractor I've had many experiences working with designers over the years and working with Lauren has always been a pleasure. I specialize in residential projects almost exclusively and all of my projects require attention to the details. Lauren has shown me that she has an incredible talent to think of the details and plan for them from the very beginning. She's been able to take my projects from the initial concept/layout phase through completion seamlessly and I've never had to stop a project and wait for her to make a decision before moving on. "
"Lauren's taste is impeccable and her projects speak for themselves (look at her photos). "

"After two major remodeling projects coordinated, designed, and managed by Lauren Brandwein, I can only applaud her professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail. I only needed to express my vision of each project and she made it happen!"
- Cynthia Palmer (Homeowner)
"What differentiates Lauren Brandwein Design from other interior designers is her willingness to work towards a budget while presenting great design. In the developer/builder world this is critical. We want our clients/buyers to have choice and quality while adhering to a budget. LBD has shown us what it's like to work with a designer who is flexible and articulate. "
- Del Nordby (Nordby Construction)
"The work that Lauren did for me from drawing the plans, selecting all the appliances, fixtures, finishes through to color coordination was a show of dedication. I was completely impressed with all her choices and professionalism. I could always rely on her to complete the work on time, in this industry it’s hard to find. Her straight forward business approach with a keen ability to listen made this experience memorable and contributed to the success of my project. I still am receiving calls two years after the completion from neighbors inquiring about the color choices. Amazing!!"
