BEFORE & AFTER
Some words from our wonderful clients!
I knew Casey personally for many years before so there was NO fear in hiring LDD to help with remodeling. In the past, I’ve hired decorators with other homes and the biggest fear is will they represent what I want? Will I pay this money and possibly not like it? Will they get it right in the most efficient manner? With Casey and team, I knew it would turn out well. I know her and had seen some of their work. What was surprising is how much I enjoyed the process with them and how much we LOVED the end result! She gave me suggestions that made HUGE differences! They repurposed so many of my current things and made them look new and fresh among all the new and fresh.
I have recommended them! I always relay how efficient they are with their time, how they love Home Goods & Tuesday Morning when it works, have a current yet traditional sense of style AND how they helped me through the process. They helped me step out of my comfort zone and get the style just right for my family. I would have it all solid tan and cream and now I have floral with herringbone and mosaic all in the same room! :)
LDD makes me HAPPY!
Our initial concern with hiring interior designers was that we would be left with a space that did not fit our style or function for us, but also that we would not be able to accomplish our goals in a budget-friendly way. Casey and Cara really took the time to "get us" and we now have a home that not only is beautiful, but it makes sense for our family. We have several pieces that are important to us and they never questioned that they could make them work with the design. They challenged us to think about our spaces in a different way and were as judicious with our budget as we would have been. As a matter of fact, with their experience I believe we ended up spending much less on the overall design than if we had attempted it ourselves. We are thrilled with the end product. My only regret is not doing this project sooner!
Our favorite part of using LDD was Casey, Cara, and Shannon; they are great! Very easy to work with and extremely talented group of designers. I loved that they approached our home in a way that feels very custom to us, and the end result is beautiful.
I would recommend Lonesome Dove Design without question. I already have! I would say that if you're even considering a design project, check them out. You may be surprised with what you can accomplish in your overall space with small changes and an expert eye. They were timely, budget-conscious, great communicators, fun to work with, and overall very talented with a great eye for design. Even more importantly, our home functions for our family but with a refreshed, stylish, custom-feel.
My biggest concern was that the designer would not give me the opportunity for input. I've experienced that in the past and ended up paying a lot of money for things I was ultimately unhappy with. With Lonesome Dove Design, the team listened to me, asked questions, and made me a part of the process. I felt that I could share my opinion and we could collaborate about it! It was really a great experience!
I think that the best aspects of working with Lonesome Dove Design are twofold. First of all, they took my existing items and were able to place them in areas that made them shine. I have some very important sentimental pieces that they showcased beautifully! Secondly, I did not give them a budget per se. Yet, they spent my money like it was theirs! I don't know of any design team in the metroplex that comes close to having the expertise, style and compassion of Lonesome Dove Design!
I would certainly recommend Lonesome Dove Design and already have. I've said that they are a true partner and will work with you with the same intentions whether you have a $500 budget, or $5000 and beyond!
When hiring an interior designer, I was concerned that no one would be able to understand, or take into account the lifestyle that we have with three children running around the house. I love white chairs as much as the next person but they just can't happen in our phase of life right now!
Luckily, Cara and Casey completely understood where I was coming from when I said that we wanted to update our living space, but not with anything that couldn't handle a football flying through the room or a spill on the sofa. They took those concerns into consideration and presented a great mix of furniture and accessories that we are in love with ...and are functional for the way we live.
They truly have a great eye for design, and they are a pleasure to be around. But honestly, I can't even imagine how much time they saved me when it comes to finishing a space and getting all of the components right. I just can't shop all over town, in and out of multiple stores, looking for the right pieces to mix and match - it's overwhelming and I burn out. After a quick consult- they were able to bring so many great ideas to life for the house that would have taken me forever to do. Let's face it- I have lived in my house 3 years, and am just now finishing several spaces thanks to Lonesome Dove stepping in.
If I were to recommend LDD to my friends I would say something like...getting interior design help does not have to cost an arm and a leg. They can shop at all of the same places you like to go...and really bring some creativity and style to any space in the house (or backyard) :). They understand the different needs that families with small kiddos have and are really open to making sure that the pieces they select work with a client's lifestyle.
My biggest concern when hiring an interior designer was that the finished product would reflect their vision and not ours. That was not the case with LDD. When the project was finished, we had a space that was "so us". We love it!!
Lonesome Dove made the process of decorating our home efficient and easy. My husband loved that they stayed within our budget.
I tell my friends to call Lonesome Dove to make their redecorating project easier. From picking out wall colors to furniture to the smallest knick- knacks, they will create a space you want to show off to friends but are still comfortable living in.
I was very concerned about the time commitment before hiring interior designers-we have a busy family with multiple dynamics--sports, travel, jobs, etc....Lonesome Dove Design came in with great ideas, customized it to our family style and kept us on track and made it a fun and enjoyable process!
These 3 ladies are so dynamic and they worked with my husband's ideas, my kids ideas and laughed with us! We fell in love with the terrific trio! We consider them dear friends! They took our favorite pieces and updated our house into a comfy experience. We now have a great place to entertain and visit with friends and neighbors!
I recommend these ladies all the time to my friends! They are fun, innovative and strive to meet their customer needs!
I was worried that I wouldn't be able to convey what I wanted my space to look like. But you gave me everything I was wanting and more. My place looks beautiful.
My favorite part was how thoughtful you were of my expenses. I loved how you were always trying to save me money, it was very appreciated.
I recommend LDD for all of the above reasons and that Casey, Cara, and Shannon were a joy to work with!
My biggest fear was that I had hired an interior designer before and she didn't listen to what I wanted and picked things that totally didn't go with my home! But when y'all came in, you looked at what my style was and picked things that fit perfectly with my home and I love it!!!
My favorite part of using Lonesome Dove Design is that they really do work hard to save you money all while making your home beautiful!!!
If I were going to recommend LDD to my best friend I would tell them that y'all are honest, fun and great designers, and you don't have to spend a fortune to get a beautiful room/home when they are done!
Lonesome Dove Design are amazing. They are so easy to work with and really work with you to make the most out of what you have, help pick out new furniture and paint colors. There is nothing they can't do. These ladies are professional and really care about doing their very best with out added charges and fees!!! Would recommend them over and over!!!!
We moved from a small city home in Chicago to a large suburban home in Texas and needed help decorating our entire home. We were a bit overwhelmed on how to decorate this larger home then we had in Chicago. While we wanted it to look good, we didn't want our home to have a sterile "everything matches perfectly" feel. A friend referred us to Casey Hall, Shannon Gornell, and Cara Hubbell with Lonesome Dove Design. These three women transformed our home, and we love every room. It is not only beautiful, and comfortable, but most importantly since they incorporated existing furniture and items along with new ones, it feels like our home and represents our family's tastes and style.

"It has been such a pleasure working with you guys. Our house is everything we knew it could be. And because of the changes you guys have made, we have fallen in love with our home, again. (I know that sounds cheesy, but it is the truth!) And are very proud to open our home up to family and friends! Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done to make our house a home, again!!!!"
"I really appreciate your help in getting this home ready to sell. Being a realtor I realize the importance of making a home your own while making it appealing to others. You did that beautifully. Not only did you "think outside the box" you were able to repurpose my things for a totally unique look. From the front porch to the back patio it looks great. I have had raving comments about how my home looks and I would really like to take the credit but have to give it all to you. You ladies are a breath of fresh air! I can't wait to use you again. My personal "HGTV" girls!"
"I can't say enough good things about Lonesome Dove Design. Even just a few hours with them will change your house! We had them come in to help us with our home office before putting our house on the market, and I could not believe the difference they made in not only the office, but in so many other rooms too. They were so generous with their know-how and their tips and tricks. They even called me later because they wanted to give me a few ideas over the phone that I could implement myself since they knew my budget was tight. Well, I can tell you this: we got an offer on the second visit of our house, (and we are surrounded by houses that have been sitting on the market for months). I am one-hundred percent convinced that this is due in large part to Lonesome Dove Design. And, they are just such warm and giving women; the kind you'd love to invite for lunch. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them. My only regret is that I found them before selling my house and leaving the area....I wish I could have brought them in when I moved in to help me set up the household for my family, not just for potential buyers!"
"The Lonesome Dove girls are incredibly creative, knowledgeable and budget minded designers who can make a world of difference in your home without breaking the bank. I've used their services on multiple projects in my home and would highly recommend them to others. They have valuable subcontractor and wholesale resources and pass those savings on to the client. Plus, they always do their best to incorporate items I already own to prevent unnecessary costs. They are a great team and I can't wait to use them again!"
"Thank you and the design team for coming out to my home the other day. First off, I totally enjoyed the experience. Really! Secondly, I really valued all your suggestions for updating the house and accessories and "pulling together" the look of the house with what I already had. The few things that got changed during the consultation already made a big impact on the look and feel of my home. It gave me a sense of pride of my home that I didn't really have before, and I am excited to implement some of the ideas offered and make it that much better. I have used a few designers here and there in the past, but your team was very different. They made me feel valued, even though I was only asking for a few hours of your time. I will certainly be calling them in the future for my small projects that arise, and for my big projects should we ever get the opportunity to make those happen. I have found my go-to designers! A big thanks to all you ladies!"
What was your biggest fear before hiring interior designers? Did it come true, and if not, what happened instead?
"FEAR: Personality clash, expensive, and ""out there"" ideas that are not realistic or budget friendly.
WHAT HAPPENED: WOW is what happened. Lonesome Dove Design team members are very down to earth, creative, and willing to work with what you have. They are smart, knowledgeable, responsive, and such a great team to work with."
What, specifically, was your favorite part of using Lonesome Dove Design and why?
"Their creativity and help to some major furniture lay-out issues. I also appreciate the fact that they introduced me to some new furniture stores. Your team has a "great eye" for functional and eye appealing decor. I also appreciate your listening ear and being in tune to our family needs."
If you were to recommend us to your best friend, what would you say?
"I have a great resource for you to call for your interior design needs. Lonesome Dove will come into your home and help transform your house into a gorgeous, relaxing, sanctuary. Plus, the team is in tune to budgetary needs. And, in the long run, the money spent for their services is well worth it. They know where to go to get the best deals and can actually help you save time and money with creativity and ""know how"" approach to design. The Lonesome Dove Design Team is worth every penny."
