Circle G Designs

Circle G Designs is a site about all things home.

The name 'Circle G' finds its origins in the hearts of my Texan grandparents. Having spent most of their adult lives traveling the world with the U.S. Army, Frank & Carmen Gilchrist decided to retire in rural Virginia and built their dream home -- a ranch-style house they named 'Circle G Ranch.' It was a place of their own, carefully and lovingly tailored to represent their unique style.

In true Texas-fashion, Carmen gave Frank a cattle brand to commemorate the occasion - the imprint of which is the logo that now represents Circle G Designs.

I recognize that your home and your belongings are an extension of your soul, to be treated with the utmost respect and presented in a way that enhances your quality of life. I hope my work inspires you to make your home shine.

Thanks for stopping by!

 

About Lauren Gilchrist Chapin

I come from a long line of home"makers" -- contractors, designers, decorators, seamstresses, cooks, and caretakers.  As strongly as they have influenced my life, so have their homes. I have a deep admiration for the role that space plays in our memories and the influence that our environments have on our state of mind. I love to help others feel at ease in their homes, whether it be a new home or one they have lived in for years.

I am a native of Northern Virginia, currently living in the North Hills of Pittsburgh with my husband, Alex, and cat, Freckles.  These days, you can find me working in the fields of Professional Organizing & Interior Design.  I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture from the University of Virginia.  I am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD), and sit on the board of NAPO Pittsburgh. I am currently serving as a team member at a highly reputable Pittsburgh organizing firm.
