  • I have enjoyed working on a variety of projects with Megan and Lori. We own an old house and sometime the solution to a space issue is not easy. Megan and Lori can look at a space and come up with the perfect solution for whatever you are trying to achieve. I would highly recommend them no matter what the project.

  • I have enjoyed working with Lori and Megan over the last decade on several residential projects. I am always impressed with their creativity, knowledge about interior design and professionalism. I have known many a designer/decorator in my day and none so far match the abilities of LM Design.

  • Lori and Megan were really great to work with! They have a keen eye for design and scale…which was important with our project of designing a whole new office space. They were professional and fun! Lori and Megan also smartly incorporated our company history and the products we sell into different design aspects of our spaces- from cork door pulls to beer and wine ingredient photography!
