Gabbie Burlingame


Born and raised in Illinois, I have been a chronic “rearranger” since I was a child. My passion for Interior Design blossomed from “surprising” my parents to various rearranged spaces on a nearly monthly basis! After 7 years as a Licensed Massage Therapist, the sudden loss of my father spurred a career pivot towards my dream job working as an Interior Designer. Now, working in a position that was once a dream- I strive to empower others with knowledge while using my creativity to bring our client’s visions to life. While Interior Design is my passion, I spend my weekends soaking in time with friends and family and ending the day with a warm cup of tea and a good book.

What is your design philosophy? OR Where do you find design inspiration?

My design philosophy is rooted in timeless design principles. I recognize the inevitability of change and the need for spaces to evolve with shifting circumstances. Through thoughtful planning and flexible spaces, I aim to create interiors that can adapt and change with the needs of the homeowners. By focusing on a design that includes character, versatility and longevity, I ensure that the spaces I create remain relevant and resilient to the face of changing tastes and lifestyles.

Customer Reviews

FBC Remodel is proud to Build Joy® for homeowners. See what our customers have to say about working with us.

“We can't say enough about the design team at FBC. We had multiple companies bid on our project and everyone else came back with the same basic design (a good but not spectacular layout). But FBC looked at the space from a completely different angle and in the process was able to create everything on our wishlist including an extra room. The design was elegant and functional and our family now benefits from it every day.”

“FBC did an amazing job with our 1600 sq ft basement. The sales team listened to our vision, offered several options and helped us stay within budget. Our PM was fantastic! We received daily communication with minimal life interruption, realistic expectations and partnered with us to ensure every aspect was covered. They even finished early!!! We had met with 2 other contractors and are so happy about our choice! They accommodated our quirky requests for a brewery room, rerouting our laundry dryer vent, closeting our water piping for access and exterior window well changes. Best choice ever!!!”

Heather R.

“The design/construction approach by FBC produced an excellent finished product for us. We added a large recreation room for pool, TV and games along with a bedroom and bathroom. Ceiling soffits, arched entries and angled walls created a unique and inviting space. The project team and trade partners did fine work and we are very happy with our new basement. All work was completed on schedule and within budget. The best part was having all construction access through the basement window. Our only advice is to carefully review all design details to assure that everything you want is clearly specified in the drawings. Then be part of the team by doing quality control as the project moves along.”
