We have known Lori Auer-Smith for ten years now. The first job Lori did for us was tweaking a small condominium that we owned. We were so happy with Lori, that when we built a large custom home a few years later in Florida, we immediately employed Lori as our consultant and decorator. Lori literally helped us from the ground up, including some excellent ideas regarding the floor plan. Lori was a delight to work with, listening to our ideas and helping us achieve those ideas. When we finally moved into this house, Lori had everything in place which made moving a pleasant experience.
A few years ago we decided to build another custom home in Maryland. Lori again worked with us and our architect right from the inception. Lori made several trips to Maryland to oversee the progress of this new home and also to meet with the builder and architect. All of our furnishings, flooring, counter tops etc. were selected at meetings we had in our Florida home. The bottom line is that we can't praise Lori highly enough for all the beautiful work she has done for us. We are still working with Lori to this day, on any new ideas we think of for both of our homes.
We used Lori Auer-Smith during the final stages of our previous home to help us chose flooring, cabinets, bathroom finishes and furniture. Everything turned out so beautifully we decided to enlist Lori's help on our current home from the very beginning stages of a very extensive renovation. Lori redesigned the layout of the home and created much more useable space and a better flow. She created great architectural renderings and designed several custom wood/cabinet pieces that are showpieces in our home. We were looking for a modern/minimalist feel which Lori translated into her designs perfectly. We really love all of the finishes she chose; the countertops, backsplashes, bathroom mosaics, wood accents and paint colors.
Lori was involved in every detail down to helping us chose all of the lighting for our home, furniture placement and helping us to place our own art and decorative accessories in the best places! Lori's direction and input helped us to turn a very modest home into a home that we are so proud of. Her involvement helped us make a lot of choices that could have been very overwhelming and confusing. At times when there were some major problems and glitches Lori was a calm and professional presence to help us sort them out!
