• “I met Lorraine through Novella Homes who is building our house. She is very professional and well-respected by the vendors we met. Lorraine scheduled and attended our appointments keeping track of everything for us. She was extremely helpful with the multiple tile visits creating the drawings just how I wanted the layout.”

    – Debby O’Brien, Daniel Island, SC

  • “It gives me great pleasure to write on behalf of Lorraine Vale as an interior designer and decorator.

    I recently moved from Michigan into a townhouse on Daniel Island. I am the second owner and Lorraine did the design work for the first owners as well. I was initially attracted to the home not only for the standard to which it was maintained, but also by the exceptional furnishings. The rooms were beautiful and the house a showplace. I also looked at her website and her past projects. She brings a creative flare and confidence that make her results both unique and impressionable.

    Prior to making the move here, like most of us, I had furniture which I needed to keep or sell. I called Lorraine and sent pictures and she was kind enough to make suggestions just based on the size and style of the old furnishings and her familiarity with my new home. The initial conversation began with an overview of my decor, my favorite pieces and what might be worth moving. Those decisions are never easy but her advice was invaluable.

    Once here, Lorraine and I met for the first time and our meeting went well. I left with a feeling of confidence. Lorraine is charming and organized, well prepared and very conscientious. My thoughts for her were rather explicit. I needed someone who could avoid the mistakes that I might make myself and the project needed to be seamless throughout. I wanted my Michigan furniture to be a coherent and lucid part of the project and the new selections to bring in excitement and style. Lorraine read me from the beginning. I have been happy and delighted with every recommendation and all of the furnishings. I was overjoyed with each new piece and saw each piece as part of my personal conception and our mutual vision.

    The terms for purchasing new items, her design fee and administrative fee are written in detail and explained in the contract. Lorraine has followed each proposal with an invoice and has been prompt with installations. She has excellent resources and assumes complete responsibility to see that the work is done right without exception. Any minor issues have been resolved to my complete satisfaction and she has earned my trust that the end result will meet my high standard of perfection.

    In conclusion, I have recommended Lorraine to other friends, as they have ask asked me for her name and my opinion. Her work has been exceptional and I endorse her as a professional with high standards. I write to you with complete confidence that she will provide you with an outstanding result, good quality and a trustworthy agreement.”

  • “Lorraine G Vale assisted my husband and me when we downsized into a 2-bedroom apartment. She helped us choose appropriately scaled furniture, draperies, bedding and accessories for both bedrooms and the living area and was onsite for installation. Her deep knowledge, experience and resources were invaluable in guiding us. She worked within our budget, provided choices that met our style and color preferences, met deadlines and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Although she routinely handles very large projects, she gave our relatively small project close attention. Her staff is equally wonderful. We are very pleased.”

     – Jan Burgess, Daniel Island, SC

  • “We first met the staff at LORRAINE G VALE when they were recommended to us by our Real Estate agent when we needed someone to furnish and decorate a condo we had purchased. In one brief telephone conversation I gave Lorraine a color scheme I liked and she asked us pointed questions about our preferences and lifestyle. The product was not only exactly what I wanted, but when the time came to sell the condo, the beautiful decorating was the number one factor that resulted in a quick sale. Naturally, when we began building our new home we turned to LORRAINE G VALE to handle the whole project. Lorraine and her team have perfected the balance between listening to the client and offering their own suggestions. They communicated extremely well. were conscious of our budget and worked within it. and were always professional. Both of the contractors she used in our home were top quality. We love our home and people who visit invariably admire the decorating. Several of our friends have gone on to use the services of LORRAINE G VALE with great satisfaction as well. I might add that in addition to being professional, Lorraine and her staff have so much enthusiasm for their work it makes for an enjoyable experience.”

    -Tom & Pat r., Daniel Island, SC

  • “I am very fortunate to have LORRAINE G VALE as a source to refer my clients to. All of the people I have referred to Lorraine have been so pleased. Lorraine has a personality which is very calming and gentle while at the same time being very professional. All of my clients have been very happy. I remember a particular one, a single man who did not know what to do with the home he had purchased to be close to his children. I got an email from him last week describing to me how Lorraine had transformed his home making it so nice for his children. This is just one example of the many people Lorraine has helped on the island. I am very fortunate to have Lorraine as a friend as well as a referral source.”

     – Brenda Cook, Real Estate Agent, Daniel Island Realty, SC

  • “When we spoke to Lorraine about our plans for an island home, she listened and said “I think what you are describing is a contemporary island cottage”. She gave us just that in our interior design. Her quality of work, and fresh ideas for colors, styling, furniture, rugs, tile and granite made the process easy for us. Her communication and coordination with our builder, and frequent updates, made it comfortable to build our home from a distance, making only periodic trips back and forth. It was wonderful to turn the key on the first day to see the interior of our new beach house and realize, that yes, she got it just right! It was exactly what we asked for. That is why we would highly recommend LORRAINE G VALE to others.”
