It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Barbara Stowe. Barbara is an exceptional interior designer who is passionate and extremely knowledgeable about her work. Our relationship began with Barbara in early 2016 when a friend highly recommended her to design a living room. My husband and I had a goal of blending our contemporary style with our new traditional home. Barbara's brilliant design and creativity for our living room design, colors and patterns far exceeded our expectations. The project consisted of artwork, area rugs, color scheme, pillows, window treatments, light fixtures and furniture. Barbara was very patient with us as we worked through this transition. We believe Barbara is the epitome of excellence in her field - she has incredible talent and perfectionism. We highly recommend Barbara and look forward to working with her many years to come as we continue to renovate our new home.

Paul McClure has been the designer we have used over and over again. He is just that good. Most recently he helped us choose finishes for a kitchen remodel and furniture for our new home. I used to worry so much about purchases and remodels because the cost is so high and mistakes can be so disappointing and costly. With Paul you always know it will turn out beautifully. I trust his advice completely and have always been glad that I did. The end results speak for themselves. He is easy to work with, sensitive to budget constraints and overall just a great guy and fabulous designer.

I worked with Kiley McAllister for my daughter's nursery, which turned out better than imagined. Kiley was a great interior designer, she took my ideas and made them into a beautiful reality. I will definitely use her again for any future design projects.

When I bought my home over a year ago, I knew Barbara Stowe was the perfect person to help bring my vision into reality. She helped me transform every room and I am excited every single day to wake up in a home that reflects my style perfectly. Barbara is the consummate professional - she listens, offers wonderful suggestion, works within the budget given, communicates throughout the entire process, and attends to every detail. I have since referred her to many close friends and family.

I have had the good fortune to have worked with Paul McClure of Lee Meier Interiors on several projects over the last ten years. In each situation, from furnishing our home to decorating my daughter's bedroom to renovating two rooms and a bathroom, Paul has acted as our guide through the design process. He is an extremely knowledgeable and talented designer, capable of creating truly stunning and original spaces. That said, I believe his true gift lies in his ability to listen to his clients' wants while understanding their needs, thereby creating a space that truly reflects their vision.

It was my extreme pleasure to work with Barbara Stowe. I started out to just remodel 2 bathrooms in my home. I loved the results so much that I had Barbara redesign my 3rd bathroom and kitchen. I am just thrilled with the results.
Barbara initially interviewed me about what I wanted and immediately picked up on my style. When we worked on the 4 projects she would narrow down my choices and I would make the final decision. She would give me her opinion, but not force me into any choice. She always kept my budget in mind.
Barbara has a network of craftsmen that are exceptional. Their quality of work by the general contractor, tile professional and painter exceeded my expectations in all areas. The timeline even exceeded by expectations. I had a working kitchen in 5 weeks from when my old cupboards were taken out. Amazing!
One other thing I need to mention is how responsive Barbara is. I am very detailed oriented and would send Barbara many questions and comments via email.
Her responses were always thorough and done within hours of my email. My bathrooms and kitchen are gorgeous! I look forward to working with Barbara again and again. I recommend her to my friends.

Thank you, Kiley!

Paul McClure at Lee Meier Interiors has done several projects for me. He has also done projects for every member of my family. He is amazing. Fabulous to work with, full of awesome ideas, incredibly creative and absolutely great at keeping the project on schedule. He never fails to deliver exactly what he promises. His talents are endless and his staff is second to none. Flawless. Perfection. Stunning. What more can I say?

My wife and I have worked with Barbara Stowe at Lee Meier a couple of times the last few years with various projects around our newly acquired home. Projects ranging from a whole new design of our basement, to new lighting and furnishing in our living room, to picking a paint color for our dining room. No project was too large or small. You couldn't ask for better customer service or design insight than what Barbara provided. She worked with us countless hours to find just the right items that fit into our budget. Barbara was also very respectful of our tight budget, timely with answering our emails, and was flexible with timing to meet up to discuss design options. My wife and I both work and have two small children, so our window of free time is limited.
Truthfully, based on how many hours Barbara spent with us I feel that we could have paid considerably more for her services and it still would have been a bargain.

I have worked with Paul McClure for many years on many projects involving my homes and my offices, including major structural remodels in both venues.
Paul is very professional, punctual, thorough and his taste is impeccable. My wife and I have never regretted any choice or decision we have made based on Paul's recommendation.
Paul always gets back to us within a day or two with input on any project we approach him about. He is very knowledgeable about the options available and different suppliers to give us the widest range of choices. He is also very good about keeping a project moving along.
He interacts well with general contractors and contractors on the job site to make sure things are done properly and according to the agreed upon design.
My wife and I get many compliments about our home and my clients, especially the ones who watched our office building being gutted and remodeled, love the look and feel of our new space.

I have had the pleasure to work with Lee Meier for many years and on many projects. All of them went so well. My home in North Royalton is beautiful because of the hard work by Nancy and Barbara.
We recently made the decision to purchase another home and the first call I made was to Barbara Stowe at Lee Meier. Barbara made what could have been a very stressful process one that I look back on with such relief. She held my hand, provided many options, and guided me through the entire decision process. I could never have done this without her.
The entire staff of Lee Meier treat me like I am family. I feel so confident in all they do that I refer my family and friends. They will also tell you how that with them you are in good hands. I recommend them highly without any reservation.

We hired Barbara Stowe to help us with our young daughter's bedroom. Barbara's first design recommendation was a hit because she truly listens, has the perfect eye for what works, and she takes the time to really get to know her clients. Barbara's passion for her customers comes out in every conversation. She always comes prepared, never wastes your time, and shows a true dedication to every project. I would recommend Barbara to anyone who is interested in high-quality designs and furnishings.

If you live in Cleveland it's often hard to find those unique design touches that make a house a home. Fortunately, there's Paul McClure and Lee Meier Interiors to fill that gap. I've always been amazed by Paul's attention to detail and 'outside the box' thinking that makes each of his projects sing with flair. Case in point: my dining room was in dire need of an update. Within a few hours, Paul had a plan topped off with the most unique chandelier that literally lit the room up to grandeur! It's Paul's close relationships with the country's top design industry suppliers that brings his special touch to Cleveland and beyond. An added benefit is Lee Meier's showroom that allows you to experience all they have to offer - and bring it home with you! A win-win!

K.B. - Bay Village

We are working with Paul McClure from Lee Meier Interiors on our second remodel project. We completely blew up our kitchen/dining room/living room and are now completing a demo/remodel of our main bathroom. We could not be more happy with the service Paul provides, or with the end result of how beautiful our house looks. He has such a wonderful ability to pick out colors that work together and furniture and fixtures that look great, but are also functional. Without question, we will never do another remodel project without Paul being integrally involved.

K.M. - Bay Village

Passion, creativity and a true desire to make his clients dreams come true, Paul brings an incredible breadth of experience and knowledge, coupled with a fresh perspective and innovative solutions, to every project.

I had the pleasure of working with Barbara Stowe. Being new to the area, Barbara saved me time, money and much aggravation making my vision a comfortable home. Not only is she very knowledgeable about products, size issues, paint colors etc., she is easy to work with within in your taste and budget. I highly recommend this firm.

K.K. - Bay Village

Our house has been completely (almost, just waiting on a few shipments) transformed to the home that I wanted it to be. Barbara's ability to "listen" to what I liked and attack it spot on, was amazing.
Her connections have all been great too, professional and very kind. Since I've lived on the west side (since 1997), I would drive by Lee Meier and think, "one day when I grow up" I'll use a company like that. Well, it was even better than I expected.
Most importantly, business part of our relationship aside, was how she treated me as a person, as a friend. AND how she interacted with my son, CharlieBear... he's two and a half so a handful and he was there often doing his best to interrupt and it didn't even phase her. In fact, he thinks Mrs. Stowe built the table, so you have a carpenter on your hands as well.
