The Kelly’s, Client 2014

We have had a great experience working with Gin. Gin has helped us with a major renovation of a midcentury modern home. She has brought great, creative ideas to the project, while at the same time remaining mindful of our design aesthetics. We also appreciate that Gin has worked to help us make smart cost decisions throughout the process. Gin and her designers are professional and responsive. We are very glad to have found Gin and recommend her without hesitation.”

Renee Ovrut, Client 2014

I hired Gindesigns to help update my living room and kitchen furniture and accessories and help make the area seem more open. WOW! I am beyond thrilled with the result! Not only is my furniture more modern and functional but also, it’s like my apartment doubled in size because of how Gindesigns arranged and set up my rooms. Further Gindesigns kept everything within my budget.

The entire time I worked with Gin Gindesigns, she was upfront and honest with costs, aesthetics, timeline, etc. I felt like I was a part of every step of the process because Gin was so transparent and communicative. If I had any questions or comments, I could easily reach Gin and know that I would get a very timely response. The whole process was beyond expectations for professionalism, cost and result – plus everyone at Gindesigns is incredibly personable and very easy to work with.

I highly recommend Gindesigns for residential design and look forward to working with Gin and everyone at Gindesigns for future projects.”

Excellent work on our handicap accessible home! We needed someone to guide us through the changes in our home and Gin was an excellent choice. She showed real compassion and knowledge that made this transition easy. We are incredibly happy with our new design!”

Gin helped us design a custom-built house. She has a good balance of communicating strong opinions while also incorporating our ideas and taste. Gin is willing to discuss why something might look better and is very flexible in her approach. She’s an excellent designer and fun to hang out with too! We will work with her again and recommend her without reservation.”

Victoria Coffman, Client 2014

Gin helped me redecorate my outdated dining room and kitchen area. I had absolutely no ideas when I came to her and she managed to still give me exactly what I wanted both under the timeframe I expected and under budget! She even managed to refurbish my grandma’s old chairs we grew up with…. giving them a modern look while not compromising the original beauty. I get compliments on the unique color choices and accents all the time! I can’t wait to recommend to friends and have Gin Designs do more rooms for my family!”

Yvette Atkinson, Client 2014

I have used Gindesigns for two different projects. First, remodeling my old home and then customizing my new home. Both experiences where amazing. The designers are creative, professional, timely, patient, and have an amazing eye for detail. My family and friends have all raved after my old house was transformed and at the reveal of my new house. The design, style and color scheme is warm and inviting while staying contemporary. I will continue to use Gindesigns and will recommend them to all my family and friends.”

Kolache Shoppe, Client 2014

Gin and Jeanette provided beginning-to-end interior design services for the remodel of our small bakery, taking it from a dilapidated 1970ish space to a beautiful, amazingly-updated space that everyone now loves to linger in. Gin and Jeanette were professional, personable, perseverant, available, and attentive to every detail. We would highly recommend Gin Designs LLC to anyone seeking stellar interior design services.”

Gin is a fabulous designer and person. Her aesthetic is amazing. She is easy to work with and always listens to input and incorporates into her designs. She is extremely flexible with her approach and goes out of her way to make things convenient for the client. Her design work has been outstanding. I couldn’t be happier. I plan to use Gin as we do an addition to our home.”

Designer – Commercial in Houston, TX

Adam Brackman, Owner, New Living, 2013

I own a green building store, www.newliving.net and Gin was a resident designer at our store for several years. We would refer her to any clients needing interior design work on their homes, or any restaurants being remodeled. She always treated them with respect and worked with them to make sure they were pleased. I enjoyed watching her work with them, often forming friendships and connecting with them on a much more significant level than just as a client and designer. Shes become part of their family and been invited to many of their lifecycle events and celebrations (no funerals yet!)
Gin is patient, smart and talented. You owe it to yourself to at least meet with her.”

Nitin Tarte, Client 2012

Gin worked on a difficult project for my wife and me – designing a custom, modern home in the suburbs. She was able to understand and immediately identify with our idea of a modern home – especially since my wife had a slightly different view while I had another, but similar one. She was able to work with a very difficult builder who did not understand modern homes. She worked with us in bringing us in contact with high quality product distribution companies. They were very good. She also worked on a difficult aspect – which was designing a custom kitchen layout including the cabinetry, appliance placements, material, finish, etc.

In short Gin is easy to work with, has a great disposition, wonderful talent and just the right feel and touch to advance a difficult project. She makes for a wonderful interior design artiste”

Thomas & Ashley Irwin, Client 2011

My wife and I wanted to put a little TLC into our older-model home around 2011. We had made some structural improvements already but were something of a house-divided when it came to the trickier and all together more artistry-dependent cosmetic stuff like curtains, lighting, color scheme, etc. Fortunately, we knew Gin personally and were well prepared to procure her services before she became even more famous for her craft.
From our sending her our initial thoughts to final completion of the myriad of things we went with Gin was gentle but deliberate in providing her professional guidance/opinion, thoughtful with the integration of them, and efficient although never intrusive in execution.
There’s really no better compliment I can pay her work other than to mention that in all honesty, the feeding frenzy that occurred over our house when we sold it to relocate for a few years was in very large part to the optics provided by her design savvy. Great return on investment and a pleasure to enjoy personally while we lived in the environment she helped create.”

Carlos Restrepo, Production Sec., Leopard Films, June 24, 2011

“Gin is an amazing designer. She can juggle any design project… from heavy construction big budget to small budget one room remodels. She can design from concept AutoCad to final product placement. Ginny’s design eye is impeccable. Her style transforms homes. I would work with her anytime.”

Judy Bonica, Client 2010

I hired Gin Braverman of Gin Designs to redecorate my living room and guest/media room. She did an amazing job! I am in the building industry and as a result I know a lot of interior designers, none of which, in my opinion can hold a candle to Gin Braverman. Gin is the only interior designer I will ever hire and I am listing the reasons below.
•Excellent taste
•She listens to her clients, gave me what I wanted and more
•Her ability to design a space that is amazingly classy and gorgeous as well as functional
•Her knowledge with technology that assists her in design and design presentation
•She is diverse and has so many great connections in the industry
•She thinks outside the box, just so much natural, creative talent
•She is honest, trustworthy with a very strong work ethic ( does not give up until everything is perfect!)
I had been searching for an interior designer for over a year. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to meet Gin and hire her. I do not like pretentious people and I have found that there are a lot of interior designers with that characteristic. Gin is the complete opposite. She is one of the most genuine people I know. I not only have an amazingly talented interior designer when I need one, I also have a true friend.”

Shelly Calton, Client 2010

Gin was brought into my home to help remake my living room/dining room area into a more cohesive living space. She brilliantly manipulated the space by flipping the two. She used the pieces that I already had and refurbished them with a bit of paint and fabric. Her ideas were smart and she really transformed the space. My house was chosen from her website to be spotlighted in the Houston Chronicle Style section this last Sept. http://www.chron.com/life/style/home/article/Inside-Roller-Derby-photographer-s-stylish-4715167.php.
Gin is very energetic with a fun personality, she pays attention to your aesthetics and vision, while bringing in her own ideas. I will definitely call her when I need another change and would highly recommend her!!! “

Deborah Zahal, IFDA, ASID, Director of Business Development, Xperience, Drapery Workroom, June 22, 2010

“Gin is one of the hardest working people in the industry today! Her dedication is outstanding and her knowledge, insight and creativity shows throughout her work. Thanks for a great “Xperience” Ginny!”

Jackie Swonke, Client 2010

We hired Ginny from gindesigns to help us furnish and decorate our living room. Overall I was happy with the outcome; Ginny offered ideas for furniture and layout that I wouldn’t have thought of, which was especially helpful due to a unique floor plan (floor to ceiling windows, long rectangular shaped room, small space to work with, etc.) She took my preferences/ideas and enhanced them–I’d definitely recommend her.”

“Gin is one of the hardest working people in the industry today! Her dedication is outstanding and her knowledge, insight and creativity shows throughout her work. Thanks for a great “Xperience” Ginny!”

Douglas Wilson, Executive Producer, Rust Belt Industries; managed Ginny at Leopard Films, May 27, 2010

“Gin is a true pleasure to work with. She had the unfortunate task of coming to a difficult project late, and was expected to hit the ground running. She did all that and more with aplomb, and a smile on her face.”

Mark Elia, CGR, CGP, President, Mark of Excellence Remodeling, Inc.; worked directly with Ginny at Leopard Films, April 30, 2010

“I met Gin on the “set” of a home that we did an extreme remodel for an HGTV series “Home Rules”.
Gin was the lead designer and we got to work closely during the 5 day construction phase of the project. She is a very talented designer and a pleasure to work with. Unlike many designers, Ginny was willing to work closely with the construction team. When challenges arose, Ginny made quick decisions with everyone in mind and was still able to maintain the design goals. I hope we have the chance to work together on another project.”

Andrew Wagner, Producer, True Entertainment hired Ginny as a Production Designer from 2003-2012

“Ginny Rocks! Her personal traits – fun, easygoing, upbeat – are the perfect compliment to her professionalism and design prowess. Ginny is a true creative problem solver. She is able to work limited resources to great results. Most importantly, she listens to her clients needs and delivers for them. Finally, she is a true treasure to have on a production team… her fearless can-do spirit is infectious and welcome in any creative endeavor.”
