Lisa ReinhardtDesign Consultant
Lisa strives to design places that are both beautiful and functional.
She believes it is not enough for a room to be simply beautiful but rather
needs to be a space that invites enjoyment of the space for its intended use.
Be it a library that compels you to sit for hours with a good read or a dining space
where guests want to stay and catch up with family and friends, Lisa enjoys
designing projects that feed the heart.
As a licensed real estate agent as well as a professional artist she understands both the compositional aspects of design and the reality of how people use
their homes. Today people desire a space that welcomes them home and comforts them. After all, we live in a fast-paced world, we can all use some serenity.
When you are able to create a space that is both beautiful and welcoming, then and only then is the project a success. When you achieve both, you have a room that is truly special.
Lisa wants to create spaces that speak to her clients. Her goal is always comfort and style expressed through interior design.
