I'm so glad we found Claudia to manage our renovation projects. She was the perfect bridge between our imagination and a wonderful new reality -- seamlessly managing our budget, suggesting ideas, and coordinating multiple suppliers and contractors.
I'm so glad we found Claudia to manage our renovation projects. She was the perfect bridge between our imagination and a wonderful new reality -- seamlessly managing our budget, suggesting ideas, and coordinating multiple suppliers and contractors. She helped us zero in on the improvements that would make the biggest difference in our daily lives and gently steered us away from potentially expensive mistakes. We are beyond thrilled with our fireplace, kitchen, dog shower, and bathrooms

Claudia handled the renovation of my bathroom with a great professionalism. I could rely on her during the works, and her creativity and expertise gave a wonderful result, especially regarding the configuration of my previous bathroom.
Amandine Fabre Dalsace, Pully
We were extremely lucky to have Claudia supporting our renovation. She is very professional in advising the design, selecting and supervising the suppliers, and in particular, we really appreciate her efforts to understand us and think from our perspective. You’d only need to let her know your problem and preference, and she’d come up with the best solution. We will definitely recommend her to anybody that wants to improve his/her living space.
Carol and Mark, La Croix sur Lutry
Without Claudia we might never even have begun our renovation project.
In 2014 we had planned to begin a number of interior and exterior renovations but as non-native French speakers the difficulty in communicating and organizing the multiple suppliers meant we had made virtually no progress. As soon as we contacted Claudia she was able to identify and co-ordinate all the necessary players and quickly and painlessly delivered a plan that met our needs. She was always upfront and realistic about probable costs and we felt that she always had our interests at heart rather than seeking to drive up prices. Throughout the project she kept control of all quotes and ensured that that there were no unpleasant surprises. She was present throughout the actual work and in numerous dealings with individual workmen was clearly on our side. Her acquaintance with the possible suppliers and their procedures plus her language skills removed all the stress from the process. Her experience resulted in impeccable advice about the practicability of what we were undertaking and her good eye for colour and detail meant we avoided some expensive mistakes. We couldn’t be happier with the final result. On a personal level we found Claudia a warm, amusing and approachable person and we would recommend her services without reservation.

I would highly recommend Lemli-interiors for their professionalism, talent, co-ordination skills and outstanding work.
They are practical, efficient and listen to their clients’ needs thus making the renovation process simple and stress free.
MOHAMMED Alkhaldi, Saint-Sulpice 2015
Claudia was the key to getting our project done without any stress.
She managed the renovation of our house facade and garden shed consulting us on all aspects of the planned project. She supplied the team, and was on site daily to check the progress and the quality of the work.
The work was completed faster than expected and to our fullest satisfaction.
What distinguishes Claudia is her extremely high quality standards paired with a strong focus on the client’s needs. Her attention to detail is outstanding and saved us quite some pain and rework.
She will definitely engage Claudia for our next renovation project and are happy to recommend Lemli Interiors any time.
Her level of professionalism impressed us.
Sandra Hausmann and Holger Ippach, Buchillon 2014
We have worked with Claudia for nearly a year and have always been delighted with the results.
Claudia's businesslike, straightforward approach to all aspects of our projects have been the driving force for us to achieve so much so fast.
Claudia has a keen eye to detail which she applies across all aspects of a project, from advising on design to checking quotes and bills plus driving the projects with the suppliers.
Her tenacity is a great asset in keep things moving and getting the details right.
In short Claudia has taken our ideas and discussions and transformed our house
Clare Joyner and Marc Hammond, Belmont 2013
Claudia completely transformed our house, taking an inefficient use of space and making it work exactly as we as a family needed.
She converted a large bathroom into a gorgeous new bedroom, and created a completely new bathroom, integrated with full laundry facilities. She also had the house repainted with a fabulous mix of new colours.
Overall, Claudia and her team made a daunting project simple, easy and stress-free…and all for a reasonable, transparent price.
I cannot overstate our satisfaction with Claudia!
Anna Molyneaux and Stephan Kopietzki, La Conversion 2012
By choosing to work with Claudia, we now have a beautiful home, both practical and fabulously stylish, with a modern design edge to it.
Before we knew of Claudia we made the mistake of selecting another Consultant, but after eventually parting ways, we chose Claudia to pick up the job. In doing so, we found someone who took all the stress away and transformed the project from being over budget and late into one which opened up a world of possibilities and options .She quickly gained an understanding of the project and was able to immediately get us back on the right track. With both her design skills and understanding of the local market, Claudia was able to negotiate very good prices which enabled us to go further than the original Consultant had planned. Claudia brought contractors to our project who worked on time, on budget and to a high quality standard, and kept us informed at all times. She was great exploring and explaining our options and helped us to take the right decisions and avoid potential pitfalls.
I have personally enjoyed working with her very much. She was enthusiastic, proactive and full of good ideas. In particular, she was a very good problem solver – just what we needed on a complex project. I found her to be very approachable throughout the process with an open book policy.
She was also very careful to go through the quotes and make sure everything is in order. We did not pay for things we did not need, and had the right job done the first time. Overall, she worked hard to find elegant, creative solutions at the right price.
We are so happy with the results. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Lemli Interiors takes the stress out of home renovations
Know-it-all Passport, published 2012
Lemli Interiors focuses on managing stylish home renovation projects that are both stress-free and cost-efficient for clients. Fluent in French, German and English, Claudia is keen to work with customers from the expat community, who are unfamiliar with the “ins and outs” of the home improvement business in Switzerland, and who can frequently be caught out by unexpected costs and expensive delays.
She told knowitall.ch, “Having a good eye for design is only part of what makes you a successful interior designer and home renovator. Strong project management skills combined with good links to local tradesmen are necessary for making sure a project is finished on time and within budget. The ability to listen to your clients, and understand their needs and priorities, is also essential. Having lived in both Anglophone and European countries, I feel “in touch” with the needs of my international clients and can help them find their way through an unfamiliar market.”
