Lisa Mende Design is Featured in October 2015 Traditional Home Magazine

 I received a nice surprise yesterday when I discovered the kitchen I had designed for the Traditional Home "Randall B Terry" Showhouse is featured in the new October issue of Traditional Home Magazine.  The article is written by Amy Ebert, who did a beautiful job explaining the inspiration behind the design for the kitchen and the history of the house.   I don't want to spoil the surprise so I'll wait to share more.  Make sure you pick up the current issue of Traditional Home October 2015 issue to see the rest of this feature as well as all the other wonderful designer rooms in this showhouse.  Warning:  it's a good one!

The breakfast room I designed is also in the magazine.  I adore the CR Laine banquette in "It's all Greek" Sunbrella fabric and Citrine Sweeny leather chairs with nailhead trim.  Aren't they dynamite?  I liked them so much I purchased them for my breakfast room after the showhouse closed.  Other things to note in this room are the custom commission Kerry Steele painting, the Mark Boomershine "Dinner Party" tablecloth art installation, Dash and Albert Catamaran rug, Somerset Bay Console, Circa Lamps by Alexa Hampton and French Heritage Dian table.  Cotton and Quill fabric were the cherry on top!  Of course the room wouldn't be complete without mention of the fab Currey and Co Jean- Louis chandelier.  The room is wrapped in beautiful Thibaut  royal blue grasscloth and the ceiling is covered in Cole and Son Labyrinth
 geometric wallpaper!

I also designed the mudroom in this house.  I'll let you pick up the 
magazine to read my inspiration for this space but let me make a quick mention of the custom wallpaper and bench fabrics I used in this was custom designed by Cotton and Quill, isn't it fab?  I'll give you a hint about my inspiration...

this room "has gone to the dogs"  so to speak!
