"I had the good fortune of having Lanae lead the interior design efforts for the remodel of my Boulders-area property recently. She was so creative, while being mindful of my budget throughout the process. I was on an incredibly tight timeline, and she and her handyman jumped through hoops to get the 5400 square foot home done in a very compressed timeframe. I've had countless compliments on my home since, and when we recently put the house on the market, our realtor did not recommend changing a thing for the photos or showings. Lanae is wonderful. I highly recommend her, and would hire her again in a heartbeat!"

“Lanae was a tremendous help in getting us settled in our new Scottsdale home. She has a fantastic eye and very creative and innovative ideas. She knows all of the local stores and trades people and had great tips for saving us money when possible. Most importantly, she was a great sounding board, advisor and mediator as my husband and I selected furniture and artwork. She is very good at working with couples (including those with contrasting styles!). We highly recommend her design services!”  

— Jeff G. / Scottsdale

"I love, love, love my house! The colors you picked are SO perfect for me! I know that orange (Joan's favorite color) may not be everyone's choice, but it is warm and inviting and makes people free. And, I can't tell you how wonderful the art is...just perfect. I guess what I am saying is that I have loved working with you and your 'eye' is right on!!"  

— Joan / Arizona

"Thank you so much for your fabulous ideas that are helping to beautify my are an amazing and talented woman!"

"After moving to the area from the Midwest, we needed someone to help us make some much needed changes to our newly purchased home. Lanae Johnson was the perfect choice! While we didn’t need major renovations, she added just the right touches. New paint and flooring along with furniture placement and new art was what we needed to make our home feel cozy and comfortable. We loved working with Lanae!"  

— Tom and Pat Elkington / Cave Creek

​"The former Cellar 13 spot has been transformed into a quaint, upscale tapas bar with a cozy Spanish feel. Rustic furnishings, weathered doors and colorful accents set the stage for small plates, and the outdoor courtyard is a must-see…."

"We had never used a designer before, and we were so pleased with all the help and amazing ideas Lanae presented. She suggested local stores and had great tips for saving money where possible. Our house feels very comfortable and looks incredible!!! We definitely recommend Designs by Lanae for your decorating/designer needs."  

— Susan and Clint Schelbert / Peoria

"Lanae was such a help to us with out new home. She had creative ideas for every room, made use of what we already had, and made suggestions for new additions. As "newbies" from Seattle, we knew nothing about where to go for furniture and home decor. Lanae was a wealth of information here also. Lanae listened closely to what we wanted to make our new home work for us."  
— Cindy and Dave / Arizona

"Lanae is a phenomenal decorator — one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of working with! She was able to help me select many gorgeous decor and furniture pieces and arrange them beautifully in my home. I LOVE my house now! It was an absolutely wonderful experience working with Lanae. Her taste is impeccable!"  

— Felicia Comstock / Scottsdale

"Lanae, SO enjoyed working with you. Everything turned out fantastic. Thanks for your eternal patience, also. XOXO"  

— Dana and TJ Flynn / Scottsdale

— Judy / Sun City Grand

"When I'm in this room, I feel like we're rich!"
