LILY KARAS COOPER, ASID
It is a delight to work with Lily Cooper. Not only does she have a warm personality, she genuinely listens to her clients’ wishes and needs. Then, she interprets those wishes and needs into a coherent, imaginative plan, and presents numerous options for making the plan a reality.
I wanted to say thanks for coming all the way down here and for all your ideas you gave me. I am confident now I have picked a good color and am looking forward to getting started on that. You also gave me tons of good tips on how to paint and decorate, etc…Again, I really appreciate your help and time. I have 600+ friends on Facebook and will be singing your praises!
AMAZING! I have worked with numerous designers as a Real Estate Professional for 16 years. Lily is a delightful designer who’s vision, details and design are 1st Class!
When I started my solo facial plastic surgery practice, I felt like I excelled at the clinical part of my practice (and had an outstanding staff, willing to engage with Lily), but the individual pieces of my business were incoherent and especially the “branding” part of my venture was a foreign concept. Lily was an invaluable listener and through her expertise she was able to understand my disjointed message. To my amazement, she was able to mold those pieces of my practice business plan and form a coherent unified message to both my existing patients as well as prospective patients. Once we had formulated the brand identity, her organizational skills were deftly used to guide me through the steps necessary to implement her concept through all phases of my practice (from guidance in employee participation to workflow design, waiting area design, web presence and finally integration with IT). I cannot imagine how this complicated process could have been made more seamless. Through her professional artistic eye her dedication to every conceivable detail, Lily has far exceeded what i could have conceived of my brand identity. I am truly indebted to her.
Listens and uses good practical knowledge and design. Takes functional consideration into mind. Great experience
I’ve worked with Lily on several projects of differing sizes and scope. She is the consummate professional without question but her personality and charming demeanor put her in a league of her own. Her knowledge and problem resolution abilities make working with her a genuine privilege. I am honored to recommend her for any project she feels is a fit.
Lily was terrific! She communicated clearly by e-mail and phone in the beginning stages and as the project progressed. She was always on time for our scheduled meetings, and she clearly and transparently disclosed the cost for all parts of the project. We also used one of her trade partners for installation and were very pleased with that service, as well. My wife and I are extremely pleased with the end result and enjoyed working with Lily. She was fun and professional at the same time. You can be confident you are getting a professional in all ways: communication, recommendations, implementation, and final result with Lily.
Lily Cooper has that intuition and gifted talent with color and space that doesn’t come from a book or formula. In the projects she helped me with I found her ability to hear the clients heart, listen to their ideas, and communicate options clearly mind blowing. She is fun to work with and extremely professional.
In expanding and redesigning our CrossFit gym, we wanted a layout that made sense for our needs and an aesthetic design that matched our culture and clientele. Lily + Luxe was incredibly responsive and thorough. We were impressed by the amount of research and thoughtfulness they demonstrated in presenting a range of options, inspired from similar facilities around the world. In fact, their redesign has been wonderful for our facility and has earned high praise from our membership. We would use Lily + Luxe for any future design needs - whether personal or commercial.
Lily and Luxe Design Company has been great to work with. We were able to pinpoint my design style and weave the overall design throughout the house. Whenever favorite pieces were unavailable Lily was also able to find ways to acquire these pieces either by having something custom made or finding something similar. I highly recommend Lily and Luxe.
We have used Lily on several projects in our two homes. She will take your vision and make it 10 times better than you ever could on your own. My house could be in a magazine because of what has been done. She has the rare quality of being both right brained and left brained, marrying artistic design with business savvy and mathematical nohow. She will manage every aspect of your project in a timely and professional way. She will work within the budget you give her. I will use Lily+Luxe on every home renovation project.
