What Our Clients Have to Say

“Drina’s organizational skills made the stressful, challenging process of moving from our long time family home to a condo tolerable. She and her team simplified the process and followed through even after the movers left. Her knowledge of resources available for the sale and donation of goods was most helpful.”

-Sandy Johnson, Evanston

“Drina’s knowledge and experience, gained in nursing homes and hospitals, was used to my advantage in the design. The result was a condo that will let me continue to live there as I get older. Lighting, mobility and other issues of aging are addressed now, before they’re needed. I found working with Drina an exciting, rewarding learning experience. And I get to live in the result!”

-Harv Millman, Evanston

“One thing I liked was her flexibility. When we ran into a structural issue, Drina re-designed around it. When an element was too expensive, Drina found an economical alternative. Drina pointed out subtle details that I wouldn’t have thought of, and explained why a given choice was preferable.”

-Dana Pearl, Evanston

“I found working with Drina an exciting, rewarding learning experience. And I get to live in the result! I would recommend LivingSpaces+Places to anyone who’s willing to look down the road at their inevitable aging and consider “aging in place” as an alternative to a nursing home.”

-Demetri, Chicago
