Lisa comes to the DSOS team with over 30 years of Interior Design experience. A member of ASID (The American Society of Interior Designers) and a licensed Interior Designer by the NJ State Board of Architects through CID. Lisa has extensive experience with design and installation of custom furniture and woodworking. Her work has appeared in The Stone Manor House which was a show house produced in part through ASID. A graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology, Lisa has always had a huge interest in designing beautiful spaces.
“I believe that good design should endure, I stray away from trendy things – you should love your home years from now.”
Lisa tries to design a room by taking style cues from the house itself. She focuses on the pieces the client is keeping and the pieces that aren’t being kept (why do they want to get rid of it?). Once the feeling of the space is established, Lisa moves on to style, colors and textures.
“The decoration of a room is a process, I have found that after asking the “why’s” and “how’s” the process just begins to flow and the design brings a greater joy to the client.”
Lisa’s Top Design Tips:
- Be clever with your colors
- Clean, crisp, clear
- Start with one item you love, a rug, a treasured art piece, and the room can unfold.
- Try to imagine your dream room and share it with your designer.
- Keep the room balanced.
- Play with symmetry.
