About the Designer


Lori Whitaker-Noel

Owner, Lead Designer, B4Design

Lori Whitaker-Noel A native of Ohio, Lori is a designer and stylist who has lived in several states and travelled to over a dozen Caribbean Islands, all of which have influenced her personal definition of luxurious living – unpretentious, comfortably eclectic and a little rustic. With over 30 years in the fashion and interior design industry, Lori has been designing homes and spaces for celebrities, corporate executives and families who want uniquely personal spaces.

While living in Dallas, Texas, Lori was the owner and lead designer of a private firm specializing in interior design and styling projects. Initially designing homes and spaces for local sports and entertainment celebrities, the lifeblood of the firm became corporate executives and middle-class families who wanted to live well in their private spaces. For 7 years, Lori and her team secured design and event-planning projects with local hotels, businesses, hospitals, women’s shelters and private offices.

At the height of the recession, Lori moved to Georgia in 2008. While working numerous jobs “just to survive”, Lori decided to re-define her direction; focusing on “providing more user-friendly design and staging that is both comprehensive, functional and economical.”

Lori officially launched B4Design in 2015. The focus: teaching people to live well by their own definition - creating beautiful, unique spaces for residential and commercial properties with maximum design impact. Through B4Design, Lori services clients both locally and out-of-state; working remotely with clients while maintaining exceptional service and affordable pricing.

Lori divides her time between her loves: her husband Michael, their miniature schnauzer, Max and spending time with their family in Texas.
