Testimonials — See what our clients are saying about us.


I hired Gail to help with the total renovation of my holiday home in Orlando. From the very first meeting, Gail listened and understood my needs, so working together, with her recommendations, I now have the most beautiful home, which I never want to leave! Her professionalism and attention to detail, made this huge project possible, even being over 4,000 miles away! Gail took control of the whole project,
overseeing kitchen and bathroom remodeling, as well as all the other rooms in the house. We wanted the “wow” factor, and we got it!
I would not hesitate to recommend Gail and Claire (her assistant) for any renovation, no matter how big or small.

Gail has been wonderful. I’ve never used a decorator before, and she completely made me feel at ease. She has managed to find quality pieces while staying within my budget. I work full time, and having her buying furniture and coordinating all the installation has been huge! I started with one room and am having her do the rest of the house. Would recommend her completely!

I came on Houzz to find an interior designer to decorate the main level of our first home. I had no prior experience with interior designers so I really had no idea what to expect. I contacted several professionals but Gail was the only one who returned my inquiry. This was the beginning of a great relationship. She was very professional via email, phone, and in person. She was very approachable and available for all questions and concerns through the process. She respected my budget and made me feel my vision was possible! She was very patient with my purchasing decisions. I trusted her wholeheartedly and she far exceeded my expectations!! My home is exactly what I envisioned. I had that “HGTV moment” and element of surprise after the final install. In addition, we stayed UNDER budget and on time! I highly recommend Gail Barley Interiors for your decorating needs. I plan to utilize her again when I am ready to do my second level.

Hiring Gail was the best decision I made after purchasing our new home. Before we moved in she walked through our previous home to get an idea of my style and furnishings, then we walked through the new house to pick out paint colors. Once the house was painted and we had settled in, she came to help me rearrange my current furniture where needed for a better look and flow. Following that she helped me decide what pieces I still needed, then she picked out and ordered those for me (chairs, tables, chandlers, lighting, artwork...). Then came drapery... custom made drapery made all the difference in my dining room & loft. I love everything she picked out for my house. Even when I was unsure about the decision, when I trusted her, the finished product was always more than I had hoped. Hands down I would recommend anyone to hire Gail. I will be using her for any project that comes up in the future!

I am currently living in my fourth home that I have hired Gail to help me decorate. She has a great ability to incorporate my current pieces into a design using what appears to have become my favorite color scheme, blue and orange. Each of my homes have been quite different, a 1920’s bungalow, two Florida lake houses and a home in Tennessee. Each time Gail has rearranged my furnishings, artwork and family heirlooms in such a way that each has felt like home while always being conscious of my budget. She is prompt in replying to my questions and always follows up with me when needed. Hopefully, when Gail has helped me complete my current home (both inside and out), I will stay here long enough to enjoy it....if not, I know who to call.

Gail is totally amazing! When I first set out to hire an Interior Decorator I did a random Google search for Decorators in my area and kept my fingers crossed. After my first meeting with Gail I knew right off the bat things would be amazing! I felt like she totally “got me” and more importantly my style. I was also happy that she was open to my ideas and thoughts. I enjoyed the process of redesigning my office/lounge and have totally turned that room in to a functional space. Gail was always professional, helpful and kind. She executed the details I wanted and had many creative and new ideas for the spaces I didn’t know what to do with. She was also very accommodating in working within my budget and my time frame. Now, I’m already planning my next project and excited to continue working with Gail!

When we decided to move permanently to our beach home in New Smyrna Beach, FL and redo our kitchen and family room areas to make it more our ‘home’, I immediately knew I would hire Gail Barley Interiors to help; her design work is impeccable and I have loved everything she has ever done to her own two homes, plus she’s one of my best friends!! We made a great team, working together to make this beach home our permanent home and also, just merging two homes into one. She listened to what my husband and I desired and worked with us EVERY STEP OF THE WAY to make it EXACTLY what we wanted. And it has ended up being MORE than what we ever imagined!! I cannot tell you how happy we are with everything she did for us - from picking out fabrics for pillows and a valance to designing a new kitchen island and backsplash to picking tile and a new rug, plus new chairs, plus new paint for these rooms. We feel like we are living in our ultimate dream home and it should be in a magazine! When we are ready to redo our master bath, you know who I will be calling to help design that! :)

Highly recommend Gail. I met with her to discuss a redecorating of our living room but most importantly I wanted custom draperies. She was very responsive and easy to work with. She was able to suggest many ideas that worked perfectly with my style. I’m very conservative, and she was amazing at working within my comfort zone. In addition, she was very considerate of my budget and brought many designer fabrics that met my style and my budget. Due to her prompt response and very thorough follow through, the project was done much quicker than I would have dreamed!!! You can also be assured that she does very quality work and uses trustworthy installers. After 1 week, the fabric in the draperies had relaxed a little and thus they were hanging lower than I liked. She had the installer at our house 2 days later and was more than happy to lift them up a little.

We asked Gail to help create and execute a vision for a tween girl bedroom. She did a great job listening and creating a plan taking all the viewpoints into consideration. She worked within our budget and thoughtfully selected all the pieces that would go into this room. The process was easy and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome. EVERYONE loved the way it came out and now it’s my favorite room in the whole house.

We found Gail Barley Interiors on Houzz last year. Gail is professional and was such a pleasure to work with. She listened to our ideas and came up with a design plan that was spot on. She was very respectful of our budget. We love the transformation of our living room and dining room. I cant wait to hire her company for our next project. Gail did such a great job our project was featured in Orange Appeal Magazine.

Gail was an absolute pleasure to work with! Living in Canada and renovating a vacation home in Florida was a breeze once I starting working with Gail. She worked with me to discover the look I was trying to achieve and stayed within the budget that we set for the project. I and my guests are extremely happy with the transformation Gail achieved and will definitely use her services again.

This company helped my husband and me transform
our family room from ordinary to tranquil, comfortable and elegant. Everyone who visits our home senses the serenity of this room, which draws the eye to a pond and fountain outside the window.

The principal designer, Gail Barley, is talented, capable and responsive to the needs of her clients. She perseveres until the client is completely satisfied. It is without reservation that I would recommend this company.
— Michelle
Gail on all occasions has been extremely thorough in investigating the habits and tastes of the people she is working with most importantly my two teenage children. The results are extremely livable and tasteful spaces that we are all proud to use.

In addition to our children’s rooms, Gail has worked her magic on our formal living spaces making them more functional, tasteful and FUN!

Her sense of color is impeccable and she is always respectful of my budget. You will love working with her!

Gail Barley was a pleasure to work with on the Linder-Media Room Renovation project last year in the Winter Park area. The 10-foot tall wall & base cabinet designs greatly improved the look & function of the existing diagonal located fireplace unit. The new fireplace colonial-style pre-cast mantel with grooved side-jamb supports were a nice improvement. The clients are very happy with the completed project. My scope of work for the renovation cost were about $18,500.
