I love her work

Since the day I met Susan back in 2003, she has been decorating every house I moved into. So far, she did three different houses for me. I love her design. Quality is what sets her apart from everyone else I worked with. Susan has an awesome personality, and it is reflected in her work. She is very creative and talented. Her designs are so elegant it wows everyones walk into our house. Her work was especially important when it came to staging our house. In this bad economy, we were very concerned about selling our house that is located right next to the train tracks. Our next door neighbor had their house in the market for nearly 400 days and still no offer. Susan staged our house so beautifully that it was sold in a matter of two months for the asking price. Our second house, we wanted to rent it, so we called Susan again. Thanks to her helpful staging tips and touchups, we rent the house in a matter of a week, once again we got the asking price. Now she is decorating my current house

Great Window Treatments! The Best!

Gailani and Associates redecorated my living room and dining room. Susan has a knack for knowing what works and what doesn't. We sat down with some window treatment designs and within minutes we knew the design that I liked and what worked in our home. Next was picking out the colors and material. Susan again pulled out some fabric and it didn't take much time before we had the contrast and main color of the window treatments. But the best surprise was how perfect they look in our home. They fit our style and we have had many compliments. We had some furniture re-covered to match the window treatments. She did an amazing job using furniture and other items we already had and by doing some re-arranging the room took on a completely new look.She is a great designer and a wonderful person to work with!

She kept me updated from the beginning of the project to the end and she made me feel like making my home beautiful was a top priority. I highly recommend using Gailani and Associates for your next design project.

Medical office trasnformed from drab to fab!

I hired Susan Gailani to design my medical office space and I have to say...wow! She did an amazing job! Everything from the design to the colors to finishing touches were perfect. Her unique ideas and vision for the office turned a drab medical space into a one of a kind space where patients can feel comfortable and welcome. She is easy to work with and she made the whole experience fun. I highly recommend Susan to anyone looking for a professional designer for an office space or home. She has a brilliant eye for style and color! Dr. J, Naperville, IL
