If so, let Gail Prauss Interior Design, Ltd. be your partner in creating your unique environment.

Gail is not just an interior decorator. She does not just select furniture, window treatments, rugs and paint colors. No, she’s an interior designer in the truest sense of the word. Gail will look at your home through your eyes to see what needs to be done to make your home what you want it to be. She will design custom furniture and cabinetry; make architectural changes, remodel/renovate your space to get it right. She takes this approach every time no matter how big or small the job is from bath design, kitchen design all the way through home theater design and whole house remodel/renovation.


Gail's expertise in historical restoration and renovation has been called upon to remodel a number of Arts & Crafts and Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicago area.


Gail's attention to architectural detailing and color/finish choices combined with her custom lighting designs and wall finishes will add immeasurably to the ambience of your home. By explaining her design process and decisions you will be able to participate in the selection of design elements.


As Gail says, after 30 years of creating beautiful and sophisticated home interiors, "It's not the size of the room that creates a welcoming environment but the creative blending of furnishings, materials, texture, color and window treatments enhanced by creative lighting and fine art."


Whether your home is a condo, town home or a mansion when you work with Gail you will create a home you will love and be proud of. Just read what her clients say.


The boutique's designs can be seen in homes throughout Chicago, North Shore, Western and Southern Chicago Suburbs, Michigan, Wisconsin, New York and Southeast Florida. And a new office has recently been opened in Vero Beach, Florida.


You and The Design Process

Your functional, aesthetic and lifestyle preferences, be they Historical, Traditional, Arts and Crafts, or Contemporary will be reflected in the design. Gail is a master at juxtaposition of opposites in form and eras combining design styles for a creative interior. The ultimate goal being to provide you with a warm and timeless design for the home of your dreams.


Gail recognizes that the conceptual design is just the first step in the process. Skilled artisans are required to implement the design. Over the years Gail has established a team of experts in the many skills required to bring a design to fruition. These include architects, cabinet and furniture makers, upholsterers and contractors. Gail herself provides the lighting design expertise.


If you are, as many of you peers are, conscious of the impact of your lifestyle on the environment, Gail can use green design and construction techniques to satisfy both your aesthetic and environmental needs.


Art in Your Home

No home is complete without a selection of fine art in the form of paintings, sculptures and other creative art forms. Gail with her degreed background in fine art sees your home through the eyes of an artist and is skilled in choosing just the right pieces of art to complement your interior design.


She utterly transformed my house. She respected my taste and inclinations but also guided me into choices I would never have known or thought to make myself. Elizabeth Berg
