“Her work speaks for itself, so let me speak to the experience of working with Candy. She manages her time in your life and home as a true professional who you then find has become a dear and trusted friend. Her natural eye for beauty and function is a constant as she adapts to the personality and whims of her clients. She gently leads you through the often overwhelming world of design while keeping a calm grip on the original purpose. The end result is a quality experience and renewed love of home.”

“Six years ago we tore down our ranch and started from scratch. I called Candy at the outset and she helped us in working with the architect and builder to design exactly what we needed for our comfort and for that of our son who is in a wheelchair. When she asked what feel I wanted to the house, I told her ‘calm’. She created exactly that with beautiful colors, furniture and fabrics. She is clever, creative, compassionate and attentive. We love everything that she did and everything that she is...”

“In the past 25 years that I’ve lived in Atlanta, I’ve experienced many changes and moves (five houses, ten remodeling projects and a second home) and the one constant has been Candler Lloyd. Candy can adapt to many different situations and budgets — and makes the entire experience loads of fun. I would never consider working anyone else. We’ve recently started building our dream farmhouse with Candy leading the way in choosing the architect and setting the stage for another beautiful home!”
