About Lorraine and Her Philosophy
Combining years of painting lessons with a long career in advertising and publishing, Lorraine has a unique eye for color and pattern and a practical, business-oriented approach to designing homes.
Founded in 2008, Lorraine Levinson Interior Design has always focused on creating homes that express the unique family that lives there. Lorraine begins her conversations with clients as open discussions. The more she can learn about them, how they live and what they love, the better the results will be. The process is very collaborative. Lorraine is always conscious that the client will live in the home long after she is gone, and strives for results that will stay fresh and functional for years to come.
Lorraine has always thrived on deadlines and budgets, no matter the size of the project. She excels at working from the ground up and operating as a team with the architect, contractor and homeowner. Lorraine speaks “contractor-ese” and is able to translate issues and solutions into useful information for clients, which keeps projects on track and budgets in line, all the while making them beautiful along the way.
The biggest compliment Lorraine can get is when clients tell her that their home “feels like them.” By guiding the homeowner to unique options, she let’s the clients style light the way and each home ends up unique.
At Lorraine Levinson Interior Design, our goal is that your house should look like you, reflecting your style, not ours. Lorraine listens, observes and learns about her clients and then diligently identifies what would work best for them. She uses that knowledge to develop a unique filter for the selection of colors, fabrics, furniture, finishes and accessories that are complimentary to reflect her clients lifestyle. The architecture and setting of a home is also considered in the design choices. This ensures that the house flows from room to room, and that the home feels harmonious and welcoming.
Lorraine believes that the house should feel right for your family now and in the future. That includes selecting more durable materials for heavy use areas, luxurious finishes in places where they will have the most impact, and pieces and layouts that can adjust to your changing needs in the future.
Her designs are not limited to one look or style. Lorraine has clients who define themselves as transitional, modern, traditional, eclectic, or no definition at all. She strives to help clients learn what speaks to them so their home can reflect their own style and family dynamic executed in a fresh and updated way that they often tell her is even better than they imagined it could be.
