“In two years of constructing our home and working with several contractors, Drury Design was the only company we didn’t have a problem with. They have great products and they really delivered on what they said they would throughout the design process. They helped me design pieces that looked exactly like I imagined. It works really well because function is built in. My kitchen is gorgeous and they even showed me where to put everything. We highly recommend them.”
Tina & John I.
As the president of Drury Design, Gail brings her 35 plus years of experience and expertise to bear on the creative efforts of Drury Design and is nationally recognized in the kitchen and bath industry. A former National Kitchen and Bath Association instructor, Gail holds the industry’s highest professional design designation: CMKBD, certified master kitchen and bath designer.
Natural materials warm Gail’s rooms in styles that complement the home’s interior architecture. Contrasting materials and textures enriches each room’s visual presentation. Gail extracts her design influences from diverse palettes: classical architecture, transitional, eclectic, and Asian.
"For me, the real pleasure in my business is determining my client’s goals and conceptualizing unique architectural design solutions by optimizing space and function with beauty. The work, of course, is getting all of the details correct.
"Our clients often expect us to start the design process by choosing colors or cabinetry. Because designing a kitchen is the most complicated project many of our clients will ever undertake, we begin by gathering information – about your space, your family’s lifestyle and your cooking personality. Then we detail it all into concepts, allowing you to select the elements you like from each. The final design reflects who you are as a chef, entertainer, parent or home manager. Your kitchen becomes your home’s signature.”
In addition to serving as Drury Design's president and creative director, Gail works directly with clients creating numerous beautiful custom kitchen and bath design projects each year.
