The winner of two People’s Choice Awards for design excellence and three Houzz service awards, Lenore works primarily on updating and remodeling older homes. She also improves builder-grade homes by increasing the quality and craftsmanship to add value and customized design features. Clients range from executives and CEOs to entrepreneurs and working professionals in various industries.
Great communication is a top priority when building trusting and confident relationships with her clients, ensuring a thoughtful and well-executed design.
Her firm, Lenore Frances Home Interiors, is backed by a team of some of the area’s leading home professionals: architects, painters, millwork specialists, tile experts, installers, cabinet makers, electricians, plumbers, and other contractors.
Lenore learned all facets of residential interior design early in her career when she worked as a design assistant for a prominent Moorestown design firm. Prior to that, she spent three years serving as a design consultant for Ethan Allen, one of the nation’s premier furniture retailers. Those experiences provided her with furniture expertise as well as the communication and presentation skills that are so vital to her success today.
Lenore’s work has been featured in Design NJ magazine and she has assisted with a local production of the TLC program Trading Spaces. She earned her interior design degree at Drexel University. A resident of Mt. Laurel, NJ, Lenore has taught a course called “Design Your Perfect Interior” at Burlington County College and gives back to the local community by volunteering at the Teen Challenge Philadelphia Drug & Alcohol Rehab program and has participated with the fundraising committee for Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice in Marlton.
I am so fortunate to have found my calling very early. Going to a Lourdes Designer Show House with my parents every year or so as a teenager gave me the conviction that I absolutely had to be one of those designers with a room to share, hoping the public and my peers would enjoy the experience of my design. Many years later my dream came true; to participate in four designer show houses and win two People’s Choice Awards.
As wonderful as that is, my real joy comes from helping people make home their favorite place to be. There is nothing like a client sharing how the design work we have done has improved their daily living; by making their home more comfortable, functional and pleasing to their eyes.
I also have a love and appreciation for the graciousness of older homes, classic architecture, craftsmanship, and old furniture that was made to last. It will never go out of style as long as you know how to take care of it and how to use it in today’s world.
That’s why when others want nothing to do with “the old stuff,” I have seen the value and beauty and have saved my grandparent’s furniture for my own use–giving it a new and continued life. With that in mind, I am always careful not to overlook something a client already owns that may be worthy of a second chance. It is so much fun to find these gems and incorporate them into my designs!
If you have these same sentiments, no doubt we would get along famously!
I believe in designing from my client’s point of view and I enjoy being their problem solver. I glean the best of what they communicate to me and then strive to exceed their expectations.
My mom always says “Everything I truly loved when I selected it, I still love today. Every time I settled, it bothered me for years.”
I am looking forward to helping you make the right design decisions now; so you can enjoy a home you will love for years to come.
Are you perplexed on how to make your house meet all of your needs?
Finding the right designer to work with is a very important step to make your home dreams come true. If you can relate to these problems, and you resonate with the solutions, it would be worth contacting Lenore to schedule a complimentary 20 -minute Discovery Call to see if we are the right fit.
I've never worked with a designer before. I've tried to make my home the way I want it on my own, but I am never happy with the result and I have wasted so much time and money.
Admitting you need help is the best first step to take. Lenore is great at deciphering what her clients really want by helping them express their needs and communicate what they like and why. She brings clarity and confidence to ease their decision-making process.
I know I need help with my project, but I am intimidated by the thought of someone else taking over and how much it might cost. And, what if I don't like it?
Lenore is here to serve and collaborate with you. Great communication will help guarantee a successful outcome. Before getting started, she will come up with a few levels of service at different price points based on the scope of the project. You choose what makes the most sense for you. At presentation, she will present you with the best available options, allowing you an easy atmosphere to make your decisions. She will implement your agreed upon design plan without you having to bother with the details!
