Lynn brings integrity and creativity to her job as an interior designer. She has excellent research, communication and computer skills, interacts well with other people and maintains a highly ethical and professional attitude. While in my employ, she quickly became a respected member of my design team.

As an interior designer who has worked with and known Lynn for many years, I am happy to write this review. She is not only a great designer, but also possesses those very important qualities all too often lacking in designers: excellent project management skills. Her tendencies toward “perfection” are the perfect compliment for the kitchen and bath specialty, where attention to detail is a must,as is her thorough knowledge and understanding of plumbing, which is the equivalent of any master plumber.

I am a General Contractor specializing in interior renovations in and around the NYC metro area.  I was introduced to Lynn with much praise by a well respected general contractor friend of mine.  She was well prepared and so easy to work with and she really knows her stuff.
I can’t tell you what a difference it makes on a job – especially with an out of town client – to have a designer who is talented and appreciates the work scope and timeline of the Contractor.
We were in constant communication and if ever there was a question about an aspect of the job, she was right there to answer it.
Lynn is talented, professional and personable. My whole team, both in the field and in the office, loved working with her!
We look forward to another collaboration with LM Designs.

Kitchen “Pied A Terre”

Contact Lynn and get started! It was the best move we ever made to having our home transformed into a “Beautiful” and “Very Comfortable” place. We wanted to renovate our kitchen and dining room for many years and did not know where to begin. We had never worked with a designer but knew we needed help so we contacted Lynn and from the moment we met her we knew she would be great to work with. Lynn helped us realize what we wanted, coordinated it all and got it done. We are so happy with the end result. Our family and friends are blown away when they see it but most of all, we love it.

Kitchen “Family Affair”

I hired Lynn to do a relatively small bathroom face lift and she did an amazing job. We have only one bathroom and I have never done work like this before so it was all a bit daunting. In addition, both my husband and I work full time. Lynn managed every aspect of the planning and execution; she helped us pick beautiful tile, paint colors and fixtures and she arranged everything with the contractor. We went on vacation for 8 days and came back to a wonderful, completed job. Renovations are a headache for most people but having Lynn made it all so easy and smooth. If I had attempted to do this myself, I would have spent so much time and energy sourcing and purchasing items myself, vetting and badgering contractors and fretting over every little aspect. Lynn is a consummate, knowledgeable, talented designer and relieved me of all the worry and stress of having work done in my home. In addition I never would have chosen the tile and paint colors that I love so much without her suggestions. I highly recommend Lynn and will definitely hire her for any future renovations. Hiring Lynn to redo my bathroom was a very smart decision!

Bathroom “Nip/Tuck”

Before Lynn worked her magic, I had an awkward and ugly “space” that basically had a stove, sink, refrigerator, and some cabinets. In fact, calling it a kitchen would have been an overstatement. When Lynn’s work was complete, the space was transformed into a gorgeous and fully-operational kitchen. Lynn is extremely hands on, which put my mind at ease while I was at work. I’ve received many compliments on my new kitchen and it has really added value to my place.

Kitchen “Bachelor Pad”

We have hired Lynn more than once, as she delivers superior results. Her designs are creative and distinctive, while still taking into account the goals of the client. Lynn is detail oriented and very thorough on budget and implementation. The final product was beyond expectations, and the overall experience was wonderful.

Bathroom “Road to Morocco”

Lynn completely transformed my cramped, city kitchen into a beautiful and workable space. Her great combination of creativity and practicality show in the appealing layout and natural flow. She was easy to work with and definitely listens to her clients when developing her designs!

Helen
New York, NY
Kitchen “Compact Cosmopolitan”

For the first time this morning, I took a shower in my new bathroom and all I can say is that I was – and still am – floating on cloud nine! I absolutely love it! It felt open and airy and bright! All in all, I felt like I was truly in a spa bath in some boutique hotel and not in my ‘old bathroom’. I’m going to enjoy using my bathroom now whereas before, going in there felt like such a hassle and a chore.

Bathroom “Zen Retreat Redux”

We absolutely love our new master bathroom and love working with Lynn. She’s easy to work with, a great listener and a consummate professional with great attention to detail. After listening to our ideas, Lynn presented us with a beautiful floor plan, tiles and fixtures that turned our impractical old bathroom into the luxurious spa-like bathroom we envisioned. She worked with us throughout the project to make sure our new bathroom was EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED. In fact, Lynn was such a pleasure to work with that we’ve already hired her to redesign our guest bathroom!

Bathrooms “Secret Spa” & “Beach Party”

When I was refurbishing my office, I wanted the perfect color. Something that would work both now and in the future. I was worried about even being able to find something that in a few years wouldn’t look dated. I also wanted something warm and fresh. Turning this decision over to Lynn was an huge weight off my already overwhelmed shoulders. As a color specialist (and who even knew there was someone who did that?) Lynn took all my concerns and considerations in mind, and found the perfect fresh, warm color that worked with everything, from the woodwork, to the doors, to my furniture and my associates. Struggling with a paint color? Go to Lynn and I know she will find the color of your dreams like she did for me!

Color Consultation for Up Scale Treatment Space

Lynn did an amazing job in designing and managing a gut renovation of home. I brought Lynn the challenge of creating something special out of the typical “vanilla box” urban condominium. We took the kitchen and the bath down to the studs and even re-arranged the interior wall. She managed it all with very detailed planning and exacting precision. Her design was amazing and most importantly it showed that she took the time to listen to me about my needs and preferences. She put together and very creative plan that felt 110% like it fit me. I very much appreciate her ingenuity, creativity, organization and hard work. I would very much recommend her to others.

Kitchen & Master Bathroom “Man Cave with Class”

Lynn has the remarkable ability to take a description and a series of photos and create exactly what you’ve imagined in your home. She is knowledgeable about a wide range of high quality materials yet she works diligently to match her client’s budget. She pays close attention to details giving the client a clear and up-to-date picture of what is happening at each step in the process, while also lending a compassionate ear when the inevitable bumps in the road occur. The end result is beautiful and encourages repeat clients, who return for her intuitive understanding and technical expertise.

“Brownstone Project”

Lynn designed our kitchen renovation and closet along with an addition of an adjacent 1/2 bathroom. She guided us through the entire process with ease. We felt confident in her design ability but also with her expert management of the project. And even more importantly her management of the budget! All changes, etc were clearly brought to our attention. As cooks, she made us extremely happy – we love our kitchen and of course our deluxe bathroom!

Kitchen “Suburban Splendor”

I hired Lynn, owner of LM Designs for a full renovation on my home. Knowing that a huge task was at hand, I interviewed many & knew she would be right for the job. Lynn, took this monumental renovation and was able to explain every detail along the way … making sure everything was perfect down to the smallest detail. LM Designs has given me my dream home, and I could not be thankful enough.  I do not usually write reviews but I wanted to share my experience so others could be able to have the home they always wanted too!

1 Kitchen, 2 Bathrooms, Entire Apartment ‘Envelope’ including floors, walls, ceilings, closets

After the completion of our master bathroom renovation by LM Designs, we again hired Lynn to design and remodel our powder room.
She created a lovely room with all elements being very different than most of the typical small bathroom remodels that you see.
We love the beautiful floor and wall tiles, the stylish furniture-piece vanity and the exquisite mirror. We are extremely delighted!

Master Bath “Old is New Again”
Powder Room “A Touch of Elegance”

I loved working with Lynn! She took care of everything, all permits, workers and materials. I was out of my small studio for a few weeks while my kitchen was getting done and when I returned, presto, it was done! She was so helpful with deciding on appliances. My favorite part about working with Lynn was her attention to detail and making sure construction got done correctly and up to code. My kitchen was an electricians nightmare. Lynn got my kitchen up to code and stylishly. My kitchen is safe and beautiful now. When designing the kitchen she asked me specific questions about my style that helped me realize what I desired most from my kitchen. At the end of construction she went through with me step by step how to take care of my kitchen and my new appliances putting all care instructions in a binder. The personal attention and organization was greatly appreciated. I will work with Lynn again in heartbeat.

Kitchen “Itty Bitty City Kitchen”

LM Designs was hired to update our kitchen; new appliances, lighting, countertops, faucets, sink.
From the start, Lynn was the ultimate professional, providing good design suggestions, detailed plans and even a three ring binder which organized the scope of the project.  Lynn met every deadline, was available for every phone call, question and delivery.  Her subcontractor was terrific; he and his team did quality work in a timely way.  Lynn takes pride in her work and we were the beneficiaries of that commitment to quality.  She met our design and budget considerations and we are very pleased with the result.  As an added bonus Lynn did all the leg work, taking our ideas and bringing us samples, saving us the time and confusion of trying to narrow down all the options. It was an absolute pleasure to do business with her and she will be on speed dial the next time we have a project.

Kitchen & Bathroom Projects

Not only was Lynn a delight to work with, she delivered a fantastic bathroom for us that we love! Lynn found a GC and oversaw all aspects of the renovation. She spent time to understand us and our aesthetic and the bathroom we got fit us perfectly. The project was delivered on the timeframe she outlined and at the price she named. We couldn’t be happier.
