How Do We Make it Possible to Live in Place?
By listening to where an individual is in the aging process, and understanding their physical needs, we simplify the decision process with unbiased guidance and customized solutions.
We believe living in place is about empowering you to remain actively engaged and autonomous as an older adult while being free to make your own choices with independence to improve quality of life.
Our design process enables a thorough needs assessment so your remodeling provides security, comfort and wheelchair accessibility where required.
"There are a number of universal design products and features that people can put into their homes for easy access, including:

One or multiple visits for our tradespeople to obtain all the information needed to provide their quotes. We will take accurate measures for the design process to continue. The client will be responsible for hiring their general contractor.
We will have multiple concept meetings to present samples, pictures of furnishings, floor plans, and drawings to begin the design process and work toward the final approval of selections.
We will have the final design presentation once we have approval on all selections for the design project. Then, a step-by-step review of all components of the project will be verified and signed off for accuracy.
We will manage all product details, including procurement and expediting, scheduling, receiving, and coordination. In addition, we continually check for on-site construction issues. Upon completion of construction, we perform inspections and resolve all deficiencies before installation takes place.
Installation day can be one of the most hectic days of the entire project. Therefore, we will be present and involved every step of the way to ensure proper care and placement of all project elements. Photographs will taken before the reveal.
I'm Gilda Mitchell, the owner and interior designer at Style for Life Interiors specializing in residential interior design. I work in person with local clients, while out-of-area clients have the convenience of virtual meetings. I focus on coastal cities from Palm Beach to Stuart, Florida, including the barrier islands. My design background goes back 20 years, and I am a Florida Licensed Designer.
My passion is helping busy professionals who don't have the time or inclination to handle their design projects, Do-It-Yourselfer's who need a project roadmap to follow, or individuals needing occasional advice.
I work well within the framework of already established teams, whereby the builder and the architect are already on board. However, I am also available to help establish the team and act in the owner's representative's capacity, making the project and process much more enjoyable, especially for an out-of-state client!
I am a Certified Living in Place Professional specializing in interior design, making all homes accessible, healthy and safe. I create beautiful, connected environments that improve lives and promote independence and dignity for all ages and abilities by incorporating products that "hide in plain sight" without disrupting aesthetics and avoiding an "institutional" vibe. "I create homes, not hospitals!"
Additionally, I am an expert in helping vacation rental owners upscale their properties to attract and keep clients year over year and achieve that 5-star coveted rating.
Style for Life Interiors is available to work with homeowners, builders, remodelers, realtors, absentee owners, rental property owners, flippers, and medical professionals.
Two of designer's most significant assets are their knowledge and expertise. Gilda has a degree in Interior Design and is a licensed designer with state-mandated CEU's that focus on health, safety, welfare, and current building codes.In addition, there are trade shows, markets, and countless book and magazine articles that keep her knowledge base current. School is out, but the learning never stops.
Builder/developers, general contractors, furniture, and flooring companies have been a part of Gilda's design career for over 20 years. As a project specialist, she put together kitchen and bath projects, sold high-end furniture for a well-known brand, and worked as a design consultant for a national flooring chain. Her widespread knowledge and network of trustworthy tradespeople provide her access to high-quality and reliable workers.
As a CLIPP graduate Gilda is a part of a global network of professionals guiding the future of home design. Collaboration between designers, medical professionals, structural engineers, architects, and tradespeople is not uncommon to incorporate the best universal design principles for aging-in-place, multi-generational living, wellness, and accessibility. The ultimate goal of a Certified Living in Place Professional is to create safe, healthy, and comfortable homes for everyone.
Sometimes it can be difficult to spend our limited free time on anything other than our personal goals and needs. So I wanted to challenge myself to devote some of my free time toward improving people’s lives and hope to inspire others to do the same.
There are tremendous opportunities around the world where we can help. Still, at times we overlook the options that are available here in our backyard. By being involved in an organization such as Habitat for Humanity and Place of Hope, I can address opportunities at the local level.
Volunteering is a great way to add fulfillment to your life. It develops human capacities like compassion and empathy and builds new friendships and partnerships. It provides for others what we often take for granted, safe and comfortable homes and places of refuge for families to thrive.
