It was a fortunate day for me when I made a call to Red Door Home Living and Renovations. Lori really took the time to listen to my thoughts and a mutual respect and trust was born! I literally left my house to Lori, Dan and the team and disappeared for 7 weeks. When I returned to my completely transformed house I was amazed. It was just like the TV shows. Yes, there were many OH MY Goodness, etc…
I had asked for some new furniture but I was ill prepared for how beautifully it was staged.
The Red Door Team took care of absolutely everything. Many of the decisions I left to Lori as she is the professional. She understood my taste and proceeded beautifully down to the smallest detail. I still walk around my house 11 months later and am completely in awe.
I highly recommend Lori, Dan and the team at Red Door for any of your jobs, large or small.

We hired Lori and her team in 2014 to turn our late 70s bungalow into a brand new home and we have not been disappointed! From the planning to the final reveal, it was smooth sailing all the way. In the 7 weeks it took to complete our renovation, there was someone working every day at the house. The trades were professional and friendly and worked diligently to get the job done. We would highly recommend Red Door for any renovation project a person might have!

Working with Red Door on my home renovation was a great experience! The quality of the workmanship is excellent! Lori was a pleasure to work with and she is very organized and very professional. I always knew which trades were going to be in my home each day and what would be completed that day. The house was cleaned numerous times during the renovation and the work was finished quickly! Lori was happy to take on my small-ish renovation and was very hands on during the whole process. I can’t say enough great things about Red Door! I highly reccommend them!

Thank you so much for making our “first” kitchen experience so good. Lori’s attention to detail and organizational skills really made our project a success. Thank you for being there for our many chats we would be so happy to work with Red Door again! We have been telling all of our friends about Red Door and how great of a company it is to work with!

Looking to furnish our newly constructed home, I scoured Calgary’s furniture retailers to no avail. I was looking for something fresh…. but I found no inspiration. Everything seemed redundant. As I was about to give in to the familiar, I discovered ‘Red Door’! From the moment I walked into this store, I sensed an original concept. Furnishings and decor were unique to what I had previously seen before, laid out in such a way that was innovative yet natural.
Red Door owner and interior designer Lori Lee and her team were instrumental in guiding our selection of quality furniture and accessories for our great room. She was able to help us capture that fresh innovative flair that I had been seeking, while reflecting our own personal tastes. Lori’s artistic eye and ability to read her customers style personality are a stunning combination of skills which one won’t find elsewhere!
So if you are looking to furnish or redecorate and need a invigorating, novel approach, I suggest you meet Lori and her staff at ‘Red Door ‘ ! I’m sure you will be as pleased with their service and quality as I, and my many referrals have been.
We have worked with Lori and her team twice. The first time to renovate our home, and the next, to furnish and decorate a new home. We approached Lori because we wanted to create comfortable, modern spaces with a relaxing atmosphere. At the same time we wanted optimize the features of our house and the functional use of our home.
Lori and her team helped us by taking time to get to know us: our lifestyle, our needs and wants, our budget. At the same time, they also did a thorough assessment of our house and furniture.
They then provided floor plans, colour schemes, furniture and window covering recommendations. We discussed these with Lori, made decisions and then implemented her plan. Lori and her team were with us every step of the way – doing walk-throughs, taking photos, taking calls, taking measurements, shopping at the store with us, personally delivering items, even hanging pictures for us!
They personalized everything for us, every step of the way. Everyone was knowledgeable, helpful, professional and friendly. They made both our renovation, and then our move, easy and fun.
The result of their hard work for us?
We have a home that is relaxing with comfortable and beautiful living spaces. We have a home we that we look forward to coming home to everyday. We have a home that we love to entertain in. We have a home that we love living in.
We know Lori and her team can and will do the same thing for you.

There is something magical that happens when a really good designer (Lori), an ugly house with pretty bones (the foreclosure) and the owner (Alina) with loft ambitions meet. One heck of a stunningly beautiful house ends up on the other side.
Lori took my beat up, sad looking house and turned it into something Architectural Digest should feature. My space is gorgeous. Lori is detail oriented, which means she doesn’t pick anything until its perfect – from the paint, to the wall paper, to the chair in the corner and makes a space a family can actually live in.
I cannot tell you how wonderful my entire experience with Lori, Kaitlyn and Dan at Red Door has been. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried (especially when my daughter squished blue silly putty into my cream silk carpet) and we’ve designed a space that’s truly jaw dropping. Wherever I move to next (if ever)– Lori’s coming with me.
Red Door Renovations finished our basement – starting with a blank canvas the finished product provided us with a bedroom, cozy family room and well structured storage area. The contractors they employed were very competent, friendly, courteous and mindful of our lifestyle. The project was well planned – they came in under budget and on time (unheard of these days)! The flexibility from everyone was very appreciated and we are thrilled with the final product. We would highly recommend Red Door Renovations for all aspects of your renovation needs, from design through staging your furniture in your new space. They were terrific.
Kelly & Melody Wisoley
We are very happy with our new basement. It is so beautiful we joke about moving downstairs! Lori and Dan were friendly and great to work with and so were all their tradespeople. The new floor plan is efficient and practical and is something we wouldn’t have imagined on our own. The colours and finishes are beautiful and the furniture items we bought from Red Door work perfectly in our new space. We would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
Barry & Terry Kopperud
We have wrapped up an extensive whole house renovation that included removing and rebuilding an exterior wall. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Lori, Dan and the Red Door team turned our house into something extraordinary. They listened to us, understood what we wanted and did everything they could to make our wishes a reality. From the moment the project began we knew that we could count on them to kept us well informed and aware of what was going on every step of the way. Their trades were all skilled, very respectful and we were comfortable having them working in our home. Lori is well organized and keeps a very tight schedule. She is a gifted designer and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her. We are so happy that we chose Red Door and would recommend them without hesitation.

Just finished a bungalow renovation with Red Door and we are thrilled with the result. Our house is beautiful!
Lori and Dan were so easy to work with, always receptive to our ideas and kept the project on schedule. Lori and Dan have over time assembled a team of trades that are highly professional, skilled and very conscientious. Lori’s design background was so valuable and appreciated throughout all phases of the project. We would gladly recommend Red Door and are so appreciative of their assistance in giving us our dream home. Thanks!

My wife and I are delighted with the all aspects of our relationship with Red Door Design and Renovations.
Our renovation included a completely new master bathroom, new fireplace, new bar area, plus new paint, carpets and floors throughout the house plus a significant amount of new furniture and accessories. We chose Red Door because we liked the professional approach of both Dan and Lori and because they offered both the design elements we wanted plus the ability to complete the renovations that were necessary.
We have quite high expectations when we pay for services and are not shy to voice our concerns. Our experience with Red Door was so positive that we only have great things to say.
Lori did a fantastic job of listening to our wants and preferences and then creating an overall vision for the house and individual rooms. For example, we wanted a complete redo of the living room area and asked Lori to create something based only on a painting we liked and wanted to use as the colour template for the room. Lori created a sanctuary that my wife now loves to use for reading and relaxing. Lori also respected our budget requirements and was quick to find solutions for furniture and accessories that met our budget.
The quality of the renovation work also exceeded our expectations. Red Door uses trades people they know and trust. They all share the same traits including a real passion for their work and attention to detail. Any issues that arose were quickly fixed. Red Door was very good at providing us a realistic schedule for the renovation work and they kept to the schedule – the one exception being when a trades person had to deal with some family issues. When that same trades person completed his work we were glad we waited as his workmanship was incredible.
We are now delighted to show our friends around the house and we are finding more reasons to invite people over. There have been numerous instances of bathroom envy with people commenting “the bathroom looks like something you would find in a very high end hotel room”. Another comment we have heard numerous times is, “I can’t believe that is the same floor. It looks brand new”, when seeing how our 1993 golden oak hardwood floor had been transformed into a new floor with a modern stain.
We have already recommended Red Door to friends and will continue to do so.

Recently, I decided to ‘brighten up’ our north facing kitchen. Initially, I was looking for someone who could help with the design of the kitchen, however what I found was that PLUS so much more. Lori designed a beautiful bright kitchen by changing the colour of the floor tile, backsplash and updating the lighting. It didn’t have to be a massive overhaul of the kitchen like I initially envisioned. The tradespeople working for her were amazing – the site prep work was beyond what I have ever seen in a construction project. The work completed was high quality with attention to the finishing details. My family and I went away on vacation and when we came home, the project was completed to a high standard I have never seen before. Lori oversaw the entire project while we were away. My kitchen is beautiful!
I, also decided to update our living room area. Lori worked efficiently to draw up a design for this space. She provided suggestions that suited my personal taste. The pieces were unique and look fantastic in my home.
I look forward to working with Lori and her Team to continue to ‘tweak and update’ my home. I can trust the work will be completed properly, in a timely manner and will look spectacular.

Super impressed with the advice of the design team, the really unique pieces on the floor, the pricing and white glove delivery where each piece is put in place! I loved how I bought pieces and the Designers helped me add more in this past year. They made a trip to my home to scope out the space, get to know me and what I like/what I was looking for. It’s been a year since I furnished the first room and, for the first time ever purchasing furniture & decor, I have absolutely NO regrets or second thoughts about what I’ve bought from Red Door. I feel SO proud to have guests as it’s common to hear how amazing the spaces are in my home. I LOVE my home thanks to the quality and beauty Red Door carries.
