Kitchen & Bath Business - May/June 2017 - 39

"We need to at least know a limit so we know
where we are starting," she explained. "I ask a series of questions and discuss the requirements we
need to go over. There is always a high-low, but
everything has to work together, and there can be
no compromise in the aesthetic.
Reynolds says she is up front with her clients
from the beginning, and she shares numbers with
them from comparable projects she has completed. Once the client shares the budget, they have
an honest discussion about what this can include,
and the designer offers a good, better, best scenario.
"If a client's budget is $150,000, we will design it
at 20 percent below this figure, and as we are moving through the process we have a little piggy bank
we can dip into,"she said."I try and prevent people
from going over by designing under, and we also
talk about where they want to splurge and save."
INSPIRATION FOR IDEAS

Reynolds: I am inspired by my love of art and travel.
When I design a space, I look at the home, find
out how the clients use the home and learn about
the things they like to do. What is inspiring is the
sense that the kitchen is about them.

Gilder: I love to infuse global elements, patterns

and textures into a clean architectural style. Living
in LA, I can't help but be influenced by Southern
California's design style - everything from Spanish
colonial to mid-century modern - where we integrate the interior with the overall architecture of
the home and create seamless indoor-outdoor environments - the quintessential California lifestyle.

JOB PERKS

Reynolds feels that every job she completes is an
achievement because the homes, clients and needs
are different in each.
"Did I have a happy client? This is what it is
about at the end of the day," she added. "This is a
perfection-driven industry, and I love when I can
stand back and look at what we created. I enjoy
feeling proud and happy for my clients."
Gilder also likes that each project is different
and keeps her on her toes.
"Living in LA gives me a lot of freedom to express my clients' lifestyles," she said. "I can walk
into any style of home - they are not all cookie
cutter - and I get to change and morph different
projects. I definitely do not get bored."

TOP The powder room in this
West Hollywood condo was
what Gilder calls an elegant
yet simple renovation with
a custom vanity, a recessed
floor-to-ceiling mirror to
expand the space and colorful
glass tiles. Photos on this page

ABOVE MIDDLE, & RIGHT The

kitchen in this same condo is
what she calls big design in
a small space. A black-andwhite background highlights
the red range, and installing
smaller appliances helped gain
cabinet space. Gilder said she
likes to leave some negative
space for open shelves in her
kitchen projects as a place for
one's eyes to rest.
