Lori Manning Designs Interview

Interior Design

I pride myself on listening to the clients needs and lifestyle. I want to make the home beautiful but comfortable for the clients. It needs to reflect their personal style and fit their lifestyle. I want them to enjoy every day they get to live in their own beautiful Florida sanctuary. I offer design consultation, space planning, color selections, furniture, accessories, blinds and shutters, custom window treatments and model home merchandising. I have 30 years experience, in furniture, design and window treatments. 18 of it in Florida. I serve Southwest Florida and The Woodlands Texas.

I have won numerous awards for my work. Recent awards won have been are the Best Overall Interior Design, Overall Best, and Best Livability in Category 12 and the same awards for category 13 for Koogler Homes in the Parade of Homes in the 2018 CCCIA’s Builders Showcase, and the Best Of Cape award for interior design for the year of 2018! See award pictures.


Q: Do you work with builers?
A: Yes! I do work with builders. I help their clients with their finish selections prior to building or remodeling the home. I also do Model merchandising for builders.

Q: Do you help new construction home buyers with selections?
A: Yes - choosing materials and colors is often a challenge for new Many new home buyers aren’t aware of how many selections they have to make prior to construction. It is very overwhelming for most of them. I've been working with local builders for 15 years to make that process easier for both the client and the builder.

Q: is it expensive to hire a designer?
A: No it usually pays for itself in not making costly mistakes. Many times purchases made without the whole project being planned out result in something being “off” in size, color, style, etc. There are many things to consider when pulling a project together.
