    Please note the cost of service is random as I am continuing to work with Gail Dent of Provanti Designs and will continue to do so. We’ve worked on several projects and I wouldn’t want to do one without her ever again. Period.

    We started working with Gail in August 2012. Our previous home received a stunning makeover. The process was creative, innovative, professional, fun, and results were yummy. The UPS guy said my foyer looked like a prestigious hotel lobby, my husband’s co-workers said it looked something from HGTV, and the pizza delivery boy called it magical. I felt lucky to live there. When we sold our house, it was of huge benefit and paid for itself.

    This spring we bought a condo that needs some love. So far, Gail has helped me choose flooring and gave me the courage to pick a spectacular cork floor that I adore. We’ve made furniture selections that are fresh, space appropriate, and a perfect blend of elegance and utility.

    Gail has designed new bathrooms for us that offer great function, beauty, and storage taking into consideration the challenges of a smaller space and condominium restrictions. She’s brought in the best contractors and has access to showrooms not available to the public. As we’ve made our selections, Gail has helped every step of the way pointing out the pros and cons, many of which I’d not have thought to consider until too late.

    Currently we are working on our kitchen and the collaboration is exceptional. I’ve learned a lot and Gail has helped me understand the process. Gail always asks for and listens to what we want in function, how much we want to spend, how we want it to look and feel, and folds that into the end result. I know that when we have our new kitchen, it will exceed our expectations and take my breath away. I’ll appreciate not having made regretful choices because I’ll have had the support of a true pro.

    Projects rarely happen like they do on HGTV. Problems arise and things can’t be completed while you are out to dinner. Gail knows her stuff and when she’s not sure, she doesn’t hesitate to reach out to her network of elite professionals. She’s punctual, organized, and delightful company.
    Gail has designed our bathroom and kitchen floor plans and has the software show us in 3D how it will look. (Okay, that super cool part IS just like HGTV.) Remodeling can be stressful, yet working with Gail takes away the angst and replaces it with excitement. I know I don’t have to worry about things not being done properly.

    And a shout out to Gail’s husband, Warren. It’s lovely to know that she has his support and I look forward to the times when he comes along to offer a hand. The vision that Gail brings to the table is something even the most inspired people can not match. It is not possible to count the number of times her service has been up-and-above-and-beyond. Her experience, creative energy, contacts in the industry, and her delightful personality all add up to an A+++ experience.
