In Lisa's Words...

I have always had a passion for design.  As a child,  I spent many hours designing houses and outfits for my dolls.   Ironically when I went off to college, that passion was redirected and I decided to study Fashion Design.
 It wasn't until major changes made mid-life that I returned to  my true love which was interior design!  As a single mom with two children in tow, I returned to school to earn a degree in interior design.
 For the past 15 years, I have enjoyed working with residential clients to design fabulous and family  functional homes.  My clients become my friends and my friends become my clients! 
In 2009, my life changed forever when I lost my oldest child in a kayaking accident.  My loss has taught me to live life to the fullest everyday!  
 This blog was created for many reasons. First, it was a way for me to connect when I took my sabbatical while grieving then it became a way for me to voice my love of design and all things involved with my work and the industry. I spend so much time searching for that "perfect" piece for clients,  so I see lots of goodies along the way.  This blog was created in hopes that some of those great things will be of great use to you!   I plan to take you on some of my scavenger hunts, into some of my design jobs and on occasion try to solve some of your design dilemmas!
I have a great husband and 4 great children, a dog named Olive and a guinea pig named Lucy.  My life isn't perfect but I feel lucky to do what I love.  I thank God for the ability to be creative and am happiest when I can use my talents to make other's lives better.
