My wife and I have been working with Paul Lewis since 1991. During that 26 year time span we have done a total of 7 projects with him. The list is comprised of 2 new construction homes, 4 vacation homes, and most recently a total renovation of our current residence.
Paul is very strong in all phases of design. He is incredible with kitchen and bathroom design, solid surface selection, lighting, color coordination, scale, fabrics, furniture selection and placement, hardware, etc…. His communication skills are excellent. Paul keeps you abreast of where you are on the project at all times. Unlike a lot of designers Paul also works well with the General Contractor and their subs. The 4 contractors that he has interacted with on our projects think that he is excellent. Paul understands what is realistic and what is not, something the GC’s truly value. Paul’s pricing is very fair and reasonable. As a client of Paul’s you get GREAT value for your dollars. You receive a finished product that reflects your vision, not the designer’s.
Probably the most important element of our 26 year relationship is trust. He simply does what he says he’s going do. Our daughter recently purchased a 1970’s fixer upper. We did the walk through with the contractor this past Friday and my next call will be to Paul Lewis! We have much respect for Paul’s natural talent and professionalism and highly recommend him without hesitation.
Completely satisfied clients,
We have enjoyed working with Paul Lewis on two projects – our home and a beach condo. What separates Paul from other interior designers we interviewed for the jobs was not only his talent but organization. This was very important to us because we are very busy and did not have time to run all over town making selections and spending time on the phone with different manufacturers. If there was ever a problem Paul handled it until it was corrected. For example, our custom couch arrived at our home after months of waiting and it was the completely wrong color than what we picked out. Paul worked tirelessly with the store and manufacturer to correct the problem. Instead of me spending my time and stress to correct the mistake, Paul worked on it until it was corrected. In addition, his professionalism is also something that stood out to us as clients. He was always on time and was respectful of our busy schedules. He was always willing to meet at night or weekends around our work schedules.
Thanks to Paul we have two wonderful places that have been decorated beautifully and fit our design taste. We would recommend Paul to anyone interested in designing one room or a whole house.
I have worked with Paul Lewis on several high end renovations on Manasota Key and Boca Grande. Paul has a keen eye for an up to date look without being flashy. He has an excellent vision for projects going in and a critical sense of detail that aids in the project going forward. His take charge attitude translates into a positive building experience for both the owner and contractor.
In addition to featuring an always outstanding finished product, Paul Lewis’ projects simply tend to run a little faster and a little smoother than those without him.
I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Paul Lewis on several professional projects throughout the past 6 years. He has been attentive to all of our concerns and needs throughout our working relationship. He worked positively with our contractor and ensured that our projects were completed on time and well exceeded our expectations. My wife and I have continued to consult with him with our design needs and strongly recommend him to family and friends.
It is with the greatest enthusiasm and confidence that we recommend the services of Paul Lewis Interiors, Inc. For more than a decade, Mr. Lewis has provided interior design services, on a scale both large and small, to our law firm’s suite of offices on Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa, as well as in the private homes of a number of our attorneys. His work, judgment, and professionalism are unparalleled in the industry. Mr. Lewis’s skill set is as broad as his design eye is exacting, giving him the near-magical ability to transform the mundane into the stunning. You can rest assured that you are in great hands with Paul Lewis Interiors.
My husband and I have used Paul’s services for approximately 10 years. Whenever we have moved or remodeled, we could count on Paul for his guidance and expertise. Paul has helped us with furniture, layout, rugs, paintings and accessories as well as paint colors inside and outside the house. He amazes me how he can take a small idea of mine and grow it into a beautiful design. We can always count on Paul to find the right pieces for the room giving us unique designs and color combinations. We have received numerous compliments on his work giving him a number of referrals. We highly recommend his services.
Paul Lewis was recommended to us by close friends who had worked with him for years. We loved what he did with their home so we decided to engage him to help us update our family room and explore a kitchen renovation.
Working with Paul was a great experience. After spending time with us to get to know our likes and dislikes, he worked with our existing furniture, found us new and interesting pieces and he helped us select beautiful frames that brought new life to our art work. The paint he chose for the walls combined with the granite and wood he found for our bar dramatically changed the look and feel of our oversized family room.
Paul is a talented individual with years of experience. He was respectful and considerate of our budget, responsive to our needs, flexible and most importantly very easy to work with. Paul also has a trusted network of contractors who were very professional and did excellent work.
We look forward to working with Paul in the future to implement the proposed renovations to our kitchen.
One of the best “finds” I’ve come across during the renovation of my current home is Paul Lewis. Although I did not start the project with Paul, Paul DID complete it and to my utmost satisfaction. Unlike other designers I have worked with, Paul HAS the ability to LISTEN to my vision and he is constantly looking for ways to stretch the dollars. He also possesses a keen eye for both color and detail. Whether my project involves custom work or lots of fabric selections, Paul has a wide array of resources which are quite capable of satisfying my demanding tastes. I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Lewis on a variety of projects since 2005. In closing, let me say that thanks to Paul, a week doesn’t go by that I don’t receive a compliment from either service personnel or house guests or both about the stunning decor and “homey” feel of my house.
We can’t wait to start our next project with Paul!! Paul Lewis is the utmost professional in the interior design industry, and a true pleasure to do business with. Although Paul does not work as a Residential Contractor, he has his RC license, which makes him an incredible asset to a homeowner with whom he is working. He makes sure things are done properly from the beginning, through the construction phase, to the finished project. His many years of experience in the interior design industry are evident from the breadth of knowledge he has about design and construction.
We began our first project with Paul in 2014 with a master bathroom shower remodeling. He was in constant contact with us as he worked with each of the subcontractors who were involved in the job. He made sure that everything was well organized, that every subcontractor showed up on time, and properly did what he hired them to do. The finished product is just what we wanted!
Our second project was in 2015, involving a family room redecorating and flooring project. Again, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Paul. No surprises, just amazingly efficient, professional design, and follow through with the project to the very end. Paul involved us every step of the way, from furniture and art work selection to flooring, paint colors, and the finishing touches. He stayed within the budget we had decided upon. And, again, it was just what we wanted.
Without reservation, I would recommend Paul for any interior design project, whether it be large or small.
As a Certified Residential Designer I design primarily custom one of a kind single family homes. As a designer my job is to develop the concept and structural drawings. I frequently then work with Interior Designers who add the polish to the project to make it all it can be. I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Lewis for some years now. Paul has a design instinct that is consistently complimentary to my work, and satisfying to our mutual clients.
I worked with Paul Lewis on a project in Atlanta and I can tell you that of all of the designers I have worked with over my 35 years in the construction business, working with Paul was the best experience by far and the finished product was incredible. All necessary decisions and selections were made timely and well organized. Paul’s attention to detail and his creative design process made the project run smoothly and the final product was outstanding. Whenever I am asked to recommend a Designer, Paul is my first choice. I am looking forward to working with Paul again in the future.
