A native Californian, Erenberg is an inveterate traveler, an enthusiastic student who has learned her lessons well and carries her erudition lightly: she’s spent endless summers in Europe, visiting ancient sites and capitol cities, earned an art history degree from the University of Southern California, served a stint as an architectural librarian, and took an extended spin as a musical performer in the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo—a neo-surrealist cabaret act founded by film composer Danny Elfman. When Erenberg flawlessly refurbished a classic 50s California house, her ingenious renovation featured prominently in the era-defining style book Mid-Century Modern and a full-time design practice was launched.

A good interior designer is a combination of artist, clairvoyant, and therapist. Lori has all those talents in abundance. She was an invaluable part of the creative team on the recent renovation of my Pacific Palisades home, and her creative insights reflected my taste and opened doors to design choices I never would have known about.Original recommendation
Lori has the ability to see both the big picture and the small detail and to be able to stay on top of both simultaneously. Her expertise in the use of color is especially noteworthy. She has contacts and relationships in every relevant area of interior design and without exception every person she brought onto my renovation was top notch. Her vision is creative and flexible (it's never about her, it's always about the client) and she was able to work within the constraints of my budget and yet still deliver an eye-catching, tasteful, and harmonious design solution. Inevitably people who see my house for the first time go "Wow!" when they open the front door. I love my new home and I am grateful for Lori's help in making it come alive.
I have known Lori's work for more than 20 years, starting with my house 22 years ago. I have not stopped getting compliments on how amazing my house is. "How can anyone live in such a beautiful place?" they say, even though my house is quite modest. Since then, whenever I have design needs, Lori is the one I call. She finds me solutions and simplifies my life. The spaces she has helped me create are so beautiful they are healing.Original recommendation
Not only does Lori have impeccable taste in color and form, she has excellent practical judgment, and has attracted the best contractors in the area to work with her. The contractors themselves are often amazing. She takes a project all the way from big-picture conception all the way down to the tiniest detail, ensuring that everything fits coherently and is top quality work. As a bonus, she is a wonderful person all round, caring, strong, passionate about her work. I count myself very fortunate to have had her advice and to have known her!
Lori imaged the rebirth of our 1920's Italian revival home in San Francisco from top to bottom nearly ten years ago. The design, materials, furnishings are fresh, modern and always generates rave reviews from our friends and visitors. The most important thing about our home is that our total remodel was an investment that has paid off in an every green living experience and expression of our style and taste that is still vibrant and undated.Original recommendation
