Our Process

For over 30 years we have been fully engaged in change – helping people and companies transform their interior spaces to fit changing needs, changing goals, changing lives.

“Besides her obvious competence, the thing that impressed me the most about Lisa was her professional, business-like manner. Her approach was methodical and well-organized. She dealt with our cost issues with the same degree of skill and sensitivity as our design issues. She had a prepared agenda for every meeting, and consistently addressed every action item from the previous meeting. Above all, she was warm and personable. Working with her was indeed a pleasure, and I highly commend her to you!”
