Exceptional Quality

Our studio carries top of the line products on trend with the latest home interior technology, and an emphasis on materials that are eco-conscious, innovative and stunning. We cater each of our designs to the specific requests of the client, and go above and beyond to make sure that the work we do is a reflection of their tastes and style.

Detail Focused

At Living Rooms by Gayle, we believe the beauty is in the details. When we take on a home design project, we coordinate every element from the knobs and pulls to light switches, outlet covers, drapery hardware, lighting fixtures and much more. No detail is overlooked. Whether it is the spacing of the furniture, the firmness of a cushion, or the color of an electrical socket, the smallest details can make the biggest impact on a room.


Community Centered

We at Living Rooms by Gayle offer a wide array of custom interior services for both residential and commercial spaces, and all can be found throughout the surrounding communities. Whether it is working with individuals, other local business offices, or providing design work for area non-profits, we stay connected with the people of Newton. We also team with trusted local subcontractors for jobs involving installations, painting, and wall covering.

Building long-lasting client relationships is our goal at Living Rooms by Gayle. We are a business our clientele turn to again and again for interior design and home improvement at every stage of life.

Transforming Your Space One Design at a Time

Interior Design Done Right

Our interior design process begins in your home. We cater our designs to the client's personal style, existing furniture and art, home layout, and adjacent spaces. The new updated interior should flow seamlessly with the old, enhancing the character and integrity of the home. To achieve this, we bring the ideas and product samples to you, conducting the initial planning appointments in your space. In addition to planning home remodels and re-designs, we also consult on paint color and furniture layouts for quick and simple room updates.

Remodel or New Construction

Tailor Made Services by an Industry Professional

Our interior design services extend to every aspect of the home. We tackle entire house renovations, single room upgrades and redecorating, as well as the design plans for new construction homes. Our most common projects include kitchen and bath remodels, window blinds upgrades, new flooring, living room redecorating, and custom furniture, but we do it all. Whether you are ready to transform your current house into your dream home or are breaking ground on a new house, we have the quality products and innovative designs to invest in your home.

From First Homes to Senior Living

Interior Design for Every Stage of Life

With over 30 years of design experience in the area, we have worked with clients from their first homes through their retirement downsizing. Ready to put down roots? We have high quality design products as stunning as they are functional available to turn that new house into a dream home, and an investment in your future. Entering the senior stage of life? We are well versed in the needs of (stylish) senior living. Our Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) certified products transform your existing home into a safe and comfortable space for aging in place, or customize a new retirement or assisted living home to your tastes. Downsizing does not need to mean sacrificing style.
