Lisa created a fantastic new family room for us. She made the daunting process so easy bringing us some great pieces and fabrics all within our budget. Everything was delivered on time and we are so happy!Read More

I live in Belvedere, near Lisa's gorgeous store Garnish, and used her recently to help design and furnish our family/TV Room. I have always admired Lisa's style and visited her store often, but had already hired a friend to help me with my house. When that friend/designer moved, I asked Lisa to help me finish off our family room -- which is part of a greater room that flows to kitchen and living room. I was so happy with how she approached the project. Given another designer had helped me, I thought there was a risk that Lisa wouldn't like the work done, or want to do more than the TV room. Not at all! She came to the house, and immediately had some amazing advice about how to connect the rooms - separate from the TV area, and so helpful! Practical ideas just flow from her. For example, we have a shelf of blue and white ginger jars in the Family Room area, and she suggested getting a few more for the living room. She also suggested ways to make blue a more unifying color with pillows, accents, etc. Simple -- and it really united the space. Then, she helped me find the perfect couch for our family room. She had it made with her contacts, so it was 100% personalized to fit the space (which is not big, and she optimized it with an 'L' shape. And the cost was very reasonable - a custom couch for about what you'd pay Restoration Hardware. We had a giant storage ottoman made as well, and love the look + functionality. Lisa is straight forward, a great listener, and gets things done. A pleasure.Read More

Lisa has vision, intuition and excellent taste. After only one meeting and discussion, she came back with a plan, budget and samples/recommendations for us that were pretty much exactly what we wanted. Lisa also pushed us a little to explore some style and scale we would never have pursued on our own, and love the result. She is fast, smart and realistic.Read More

Lisa is an amazing designer and very easy to work with and has a great eye for color and pattern etc... Love everything she has done for me and my home. Would highly recommend her!!!Read More

I have been working with Lisa for two years, and two homes. We had just moved from the East Coast when I happened to wonder into her store. I was totally overwhelmed and starting from ground zero. She is quick, smart and gets what you are looking for the price you are comfortable with on the very first meeting. Her store is beautiful , fresh and inspiring. Not at all pushy, but encouraging enough to make me go the distance and just get the job done and enjoy our home. I have worked with many designers in the past and come from a background in the design industry and would have to say she is the best I have ever hired to help me. She first worked with us in a rental property and then 2 years later when we purchased a home. We were totally comfortable in the new house within one week of moving because of her ability to quickly pull together our look with things we already owned, anticipating what we would need and getting them asap from her very reliable sources. She is also a pleasure to work with.Read More

My husband and I live in a small, 1280 sq ft house with our 3 children. After we purchased the home, Lisa came in and saved us from making huge design mistakes. She custom made an L-shaped couch for us and reconfigured the living room layout in a way we never thought possible. She helped us with additional custom made furniture, accents and artwork throughout the entire house and guided us on window treatments which changed the look and feel of the entire space. Her impeccable taste, innate sense of space and flow, and work ethic have made me a client and friend for life.Read More

I thought Garnish and Lisa were great - creative, responsive and thoughtful about design and functionality. Lisa was direct without being pushy, which I needed and appreciated. I'm very happy with my experience with Garnish, and overall, my living room that she put together.Read More

Lisa was delightful to work with - her ideas were creative and unique, she always provided numerous design options and communicated frequently about the status and timing of pieces. A once useless room in our home is now an inviting, beautiful and functional space where we love to relax. Lisa went above and beyond my expectations - when she installed all of our pieces, she also added some additional items to enhance and finish off the space. We love our new space!Read More
