Ready to collaborate on your edesign project with me?

Let's get started!

I grew up in New York but have lived in Las Vegas for 40 years. Although, I still crave pizza, buttered rolls, and black and white cookies. Thirty years ago, I started my firm after a career in banking. Banking gave me the experience to understand business and money management, so I'm great working with budgets. Being a creative person, people think of me as a little different, as I find accounting and budget management relaxing, which my clients love. I received my interior design degree from the Interior Design Institute, but my training didn't stop there. I've furthered my expertise and certification in color by studying with worldwide color experts. No matter how long you do something, you can always improve yourself. Since starting my firm, I've been fortunate to work with over 2,000 clients on 6 million square feet of residential and commercial projects, both nationally and internationally. My most exciting project was in Russia, which was also on my bucket list. It was an interesting experience, and I'll do it again if I have the chance. Along with Russia and my amazing residential and commercial clients, some of my other favorite projects were: Sky Boxes at the University of Las Vegas Thomas Mack Center, Television Set design for Law for the Layman, Caesars Palaces Forum Shops Corporate Offices, Las Vegas Assistance League of Las Vegas-Thrift Store, Ballroom, Boardroom, Offices, Lobby and Operation School Bell Store, Basketball players lounge and the Coach's office at the University of Las Vegas, Playtime Casinos in BC, Canada. One of the fun things I did was co-host a design segment on ABCs Decorators Notebook television show. And yes, the camera puts ten pounds on you. Now you can find me behind the scene as a Design Columnist for the Las Vegas Review-Journal. I'm passionate about giving back to my community, so in 2013 I founded Seniors To The Rescue, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit; we spend time with older adults in assisted living communities doing projects for animal rescues and shelters. To see what these fantastic seniors do and the rescues we help, visit our website. Now that you know about me, I look forward to getting to know you. Head on over to our Contact Page and let me know what decorating project I can help you with.

"We would’ve never thought of the suggestions Gail gave us. Having her expert advice was invaluable."

~ Roberta H.

"Gail is easy to work with and has wonderful ideas. We did all of the work ourselves to save money, but it was Gail's ideas that helped transform our bedroom into our private retreat."

~ Peter H.

"We're so glad Gail placed our furniture before we started to build our new house. It allowed us to have our architect make changes so our furniture would fit where we wanted it to. "
