If you have not yet listened to Stephen Drucker, Editor and Chief of House Beautiful, on The Skirted Round Table, I would encourage you to do so. He makes many great and interesting points regarding magazines, designers and blogs. One thought that stuck with me is the sheer number of talented designers who have yet to be published in a national magazine or gain name recognition. Truly, there are so many that are a constant source of inspiration when writing my blog each day. As Stephen reminded us, “Style and great design are everywhere!”
Certainly that is true when it comes to Lisa Sternfeld. A graduate of Parsons School of Design (she also studied art and design at the University of Florence, Italy), Lisa creates rooms that are both highly sophisticated and exceptionally inviting.
After working with such industry greats as Thomas O’Brien and Adam Tihany, as well as Walt Disney, Coach and Victoria’s Secret, she founded her firm, LSID, in 2006. Lisa recently completed phase one of a “dream project” for clients on Martha’s Vineyard.
Wanting a formal, yet elegant beach home, Lisa selected a color palette reflecting the pale colors of the sky and warms blues of the sea. Bespoke furniture and accessories, including chairs finished with ancient gilding techniques and jewel-like lighting crafted by hand in bronze, crystal and enamel, adds a summerlike sparkle year round. Come spring Lisa will start work on phase 2 of the home (the private spaces). I for one can’t wait to see what she has in store.
