LEAH G. BAILEY, Principal Designer

Raised in Savannah, Leah Giroux Bailey knew from an early age that she wanted to be an interior designer. “When I was in fifth grade, we had a career day. I dressed up as what I thought an Interior Designer looked like, with big jewelry and cork boards with fabric. I thought designers wore big jewelry.”

 

After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design, Leah began working for local companies like Creative Stone and Garden State Tile. It is through these businesses that she learned the ins and outs of construction and practical application of design from behind the scenes giving her the experience she needed to expand.

 

Leah began LGB Interiors, LLC over two decades ago, working as an Interior Designer for homes at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, SC, and at the Landings on Skidaway Island, along with residential projects throughout the area. After becoming pregnant with her second child, Leah decided she needed to expand her business to accommodate her growing career and family. She began conceptualizing the Design House for as a local hub for designers to source their products and rent space. After finding the perfect group to share their concepts and space with Design House Interiors Group opened in 2007. This innovative concept has lead to the growth of now 5 interior designers in the area.

MEET THE TEAM

As 2020 businesses grew in the Low Country due to the unexpected global pandemic, so did Leah's design business. As her design services continued to grow, she opened an interiors boutique in July of 2020. Placed in the heart of downtown Bluffton, this shop offers the community a glimpse of the creative vision that Leah Bailey has on every project. Now more than ever, Leah felt it was time to show not only her existing clients but her potential new clients what her interior design could bring to their homes.

 

Through the doors of her shop, Leah shares her talent and refined collection of decor, art, and more. As she shops for each unique project, she collects rare finds to share in the shop - offering inspiration and an opportunity to have a piece of Leah Bailey inspired design in many homes. 

 

Furthermore, she has now added a new layer of clothing throughout the shop as an unexpected surprise. Now Leah's dream of an interiors boutique has turned into a lifestyle and she's never looking back!
