What our clients say about working with Alpha Design Group...
"We have worked with Lori McMurren and Alpha Design Group since 2002 when we began the renovation of our guest house and the plans for the extensive re-design and remodel of our primary residence. Lori did all of the preliminary drawings for wall changes, we combine some rooms and re-designed others. Every finish in the house, every stairway, wall, flooring surface, custom iron railing, banisters and doors, windows, cabinets- the kitchen and all bathrooms were completely re-designed...we gutted the house and started over! We added a gourmet outdoor kitchen in our pool house, a new poolside cabanna, we did so much and it all came together flawlessly.
It was a 3-year project and we worked very well with Lori and our General Contractor every step of the way. Having been involved in other projects, one of the highest recommendations that we can make for Lori and her Alpha Design Group Team is how they worked with the contractors. No egos, no headaches. They worked together smoothly. Many things were designed as the project evolved and our family grew, Lori was always professional, always available to meet with us or the contractor. She knew our budgets, our tastes and she made extremely well thought out recommendations on every decision. Many times our out of town travel required that she make decisions in our absence and we were able to trust her integrity and judgement to represent our interests and desires perfectly. We never had an unwanted surprise when we entrusted her with the direction of the project.
She helped us transform a big, contemporary house into a warm, European villa-home! We love our home and prefer it to any place on earth! We have and will use Lori again and we can offer only the highest recommendation to any prospective clients – weather for a residential project or for a commercial project. She is a talented and thoughtful designer and a wonderful friend!"

"We were given Lori McMurren's name from several of our friends who had worked with her in the past and were very pleased with her work. We have now worked with Lori on two complete remodel / redesign projects, in two different home. What I appreciated about Lori was she was willing to hear what we wanted our remodel to include and from there she took it from being good to looking wow! She had great redesign ideas for our kitchen and was able to take the new look, style and color of our kitchen and pull it together with the other adjacent rooms. Her skill at using different furniture pieces and fabrics brought all of it together. She was professional, timely, patient and always available when we had questions or needed to rediscuss options. We are extremely pleased and would definitely recommend Lori as a truly professional designer that has outstanding ideas and skills."
"Hi Lori! As we near the completion of our decorating project, we want to thank you for making "everything beautiful in its time". We couldn't be happier with the end results. You have created a warm, comfortable feeling throughout our home while still giving it a touch of elegance. You were a delight to work with and always sensitive to listen to our wants and needs. No matter what we asked of you, you knew exactly where to go and how to achieve it.
When we first met, we were attracted to you as a person, but quickly considered you a true friend We have been blessed by your steady, unruffled demeanor. You have been a joy to work with for which we are thankful.
Warmest Regards, P & B
"Dear Lori, it seems surreal to me to be living in a completed dream, and I cannot say THANK YOU loudly enough, strongly enough or deeply enough.
I knew immediately when I met you several years ago that you would be "the one" to help me create this dream, your talent, vision and patience are incredible! I freely admit to being a "difficult" client...lol...those dreaded words..."Can you find this for me, can we do this?" Every step of the way you have treated me as If I was a major client with a major project, made me feel like your top priority, and listened to every concern no matter how trivial. I am utterly grateful for your devotion to my "small projects", to me as a client and now as an incredibly grateful and satisfied friend for life!
I have never worked with anyone before who produced incredible results both on time and under budget! Those two things speak volumes by themselves...but the truest testament is in seeing my home, my master bedroom especially, it is ethereal and dreamy, truly a work of art.
Thank you again Lori, and know that I have and do refer you to friends and colleagues, and if you ever need a reference please feel free to give out my cell and home numbers to your prospective clients.
I look forward to our next project!
Very Best Regards! FG
"Remodeling our kitchen with Lori McMurren and Alpha Design Group has been a very satisfying experience for us. The planning and designing phase was exciting and easy. Lori guided us to the decisions we needed to make in materials, appliances and designs, and helped us make good choices.
Alpha Design Group works with the finest, most professional sub-contractors and Lori schedules the work seamlessly. We were on vacation for 2 weeks, and when we returned our kitchen was superbly finished. Even the wood floors had been refinished while the work went on! That is a job that usually takes at least a week all alone, and managing the dust was perfect. NO sanding dust was anywhere in the house! Lori McMurren is a designer/contractor who has work integrity, is honest and trustworthy, and she expects the same from her sub-contractors. The work she has done for us has far exceeded our expectations. There is never a doubt about the finished work when she is involved. She makes the job a real value."

"We have been thrilled with the results of working with Alpha Design Group on several projects! Lori has taken the time with us to get to know us as well as what we like and how we live. She has developed wonderful ideas that have worked well for us. We have very much liked her recommendations on color and style. We have also been happy with the subs she has selected to do projects for us. She has stayed with the projects and has made sure that we are happy with the end results. We have undertaken our work with Lori slowly and somewhat piecemeal yet she has been successful in pulling it all together for us! We highly recommend Alpha Design Group!"

"When we first dreamed of our addition, we heard Lori McMurren and Alpha Design Group would provide the best advice we could receive. We were not disappointed. Lori not only worked with both of us on design and layout but also with the architect and our general contractor. Her expertise lends itself to a variety of individuals from the tile setter to the trim carpenters, and she quickly earned their respect for her ability and knowledge. She has a way of making the homeowners feel at ease with their decisions about colors, fabrics and furnishings and is professional in the way she handles even the most complex situations. We now have an even more beautiful home thanks to the talent of Lori McMurren and Alpha Design Group. We highly recommend them as one of the top designers to make your home a beautiful one."

"When we completed the 2006 expansion and renovation of our Greeley campus, the physicians and surgeons were dissatisfied with the newly designed space, the lighting, furnishings, information handling, mail - their needs simply were not met. We called Alpha Design Group and Lori and her staff transformed these two critically important areas for us - on time, on budget and she worked within the sometimes cumbersome process of our organization with skill and professionalism. What is more important, she turned two, windowless rooms into distinctly different and extremely comfortable and elegant areas in which our physicians are able to relax, meet with other physicians and rest between cases. Our physicians enthusiastically accepted their newly remodeled space and welcomed the second round of changes! The use of light, stone, rich woods, durable but beautiful materials and the comfortable areas that were created for them pleased a group of Doc's who have pretty high standards and know what they like and need. We can't thank ADG enough for helping us take care special care of those who take care of everyone else!"
"Lori - Thank you for such a wonderful job! I would highly recommend and your company, Alpha Design Group, to anyone embarking on the treacherous road of designing or redesigning a living or working environment. I have used you over the past ten years designing, remodeling and furnishing luxurious, warm and comfortable living environments in two of my residences and several multi-family residences I have had for sale. You have also remodeled our corporate office areas - inside and out -- resulting in an updated very professional state of the art business environment. Lori, you deliver the quality I am looking for at a price that is fair and understandable. Please do not hesitate to have your prospective clients call me if you want to use me as a reference or if they have any questions regarding this testimonial. Thanks!"
"Lori, we are so happy with our new kitchen. You did a great job and it was so much fun working with you! I didn't know exactly how to tell you what I wanted, but this kitchen is it! It is beautiful and it is exactly what I was hoping for. We would highly recommend you to anyone who asks. We can't wait to start on our living room! " Phase II - LOVE IT, LOVE IT...
