Inspired thinking with the most unique insight into the client needs. Creative, patient, resourceful, timely, amazing sense of style and comfort. An exceptional studio on all fronts. Time management, budgeting, managing deliveries and contractors, billing.
Tracy and the Gilmore Design Studio have worked on several projects for me over the last few years - transforming my residence not only aesthetically, but emotionally. My space now reflects just the atmosphere I wanted - serene, tranquil, fluid and inviting. Tracy works with ease and a tireless approach to creative design.
We did the residence in two parts, and then the design studio for a major LA printing firm.
Tracy is uniquely talented.

Encino, CA - whole house gut, remodel, decorate:
I have been working with Tracy of Gilmore Design Studio for the past year. She helped me from the beginning when we were drawing the plans for our new house and consulted with me and with our contractors throughout the construction process She did the floorplans and lay out for the furnishings throughout the house and now is helping us complete the final touches of our dream home. She had creative constructive ideas which captured the feeling and look we wanted to achieve. She was directly involved in designing the finish cabinetry, tile /stone layout, lighting, flooring, wall finishes, window treatments and furniture layout and selections. Often we had our own ideas or suggestions and Tracy always respected our budget, taste and needs. Often I can take a while to commit to an idea or change my mind but Tracy was always patient and understanding. She was able to incorporate some of our existing pieces effectively. At all times though out the process she was extremely professional both in dealing with us and with all of the subs and vendors. She was available whenever we needed her for a quick question or lengthy afternoon session. She was able to fix problems as they occurred and after the fact and keep us calm during a stressful construction and design process.
It has been a pleasure to work with Tracy. I sell residential real estate and I look forward to recommending her highly to my clients. I know we will work together for a long time.
Encino, CA - living room & master bedroom suite redecoration:
Originally, I engaged Gilmore Design to simply purchase furniture for me as I was under the delusion "I can do the decorating/arrangement/coordinating myself." Boy was I wrong! During our first meeting, Tracy and I discussed what we wanted out of our living room. She listened carefully to our wants and needs, returning the following week with a unique floor plan designed in a way we could never imagine.
She took my husband's television requirements, our entertaining needs, our desire to update our traditional Mediterranean home, and melded them all into a phenomenal arrangement. She even took into consideration storage for my knitting, which is helpful for the Winter months spent in this room.
People now walk into this room, saying it's a happy, gorgeous space. On our dark hardwood floors, Tracy selected two off-white shag rugs, separating two sitting areas, that with the stylish and comfortable swivel club chairs, can become one space with a turn of the chair. She designed cabinetry (white with a pale aqua backing) accommodating a new 70" TV which can be watched from either the club chairs or the off-white (different fabric from the chairs) sofa flanked by two accent chairs. Pops of color, mainly aqua with a bit of dark red, are placed strategically around the room. Our new living room completely exceeded all of our expectations!
Tracy continues to follow-up with me on final details. Her calm, sensitive manner makes her approachable. She's got a great sense of design, yet incorporates our taste as well. She is wonderful to work with...I'd highly recommend!
