What can we help you with today?
Lisa and team are chameleons whose mantra BE DARING. BE INSPIRED. BE REALISTIC. HAVE FUN is still true after almost 20 years! They approach every project to be custom-tailored to the Client’s needs – budget, timeline, expectations and scope. Some of their larger projects can take years to complete — but there is a lot of love for smaller projects and that instant gratification. Lisa’s goal – ALWAYS – is to deliver both a gorgeous product that leaves their Clients spellbound AND a more functional space that lets them live their lives a little easier.
LWD prefers to start every project with Client inspirational images – what they like and what they don’t like. After all, one’s interpretation of “Derby Traditional” may be very different from person to person. Creating realistic budgets and timeframes for the project are also essentials for smooth sailing.
Whatever the scope of the project, Lisa can collaborate with any one of several architectural, construction, crafts people, trade partners and vendors to fill out the team and service the project properly. LWD can be your one-stop shop where insight, experience, and a spectacular set of eyes can carry you through the process — from that first meeting to that last fluffed pillow!
Single Room Makeovers
Sometimes the Client may have only one or two rooms to work on. And that’s just fine! LWD will tackle this with the same gusto as a whole house – concepting, floor plans, Client meetings and shopping trips… all the way to installation. Sometimes Clients chose to do a handful of rooms at a time – over a course of several years, the whole house will have been transformed.
Whether the project entails a new build or just ripping out walls to start over, LWD would love to be there at the beginning. Being brought in at project inception allows for collaboration as a team (with the architects, builders and the Client) to define the vision, needs/deal-breakers and ‘wish list’ items. Although LWD plays consultant on the architectural element, they will take the lead on all interior finishes. From selecting furnishings to cabinetry to that crazy purple tassel on the pillows, Lisa and team will select, execute and install the rest!
These are the most used spaces in the home — and generally the most complicated! LWD will help you imagine the possibilities, sort thru the different options, and educate the Client on what’s
Sometimes Clients go about it on their own and get to the point where they are “almost there” but need a little professional help. For a fixed fee, LWD can meet one-on-one in the Client’s home — or even virtually – to answer questions, suggest new ideas and provide some expert direction. These sessions are a minimum of 90 minutes.
Our Clients’ second homes tend to be completely different from their everyday house – they turn up the fun and explore ideas they would never consider in their daily life! Working remotely with on-site contractors provides daily tabs on progress, while intermittent trips let the team check out the unfolding design in real time.
Being in the business for nearly two decades, Lisa has amassed a list of favorite trades and vendors that execute their insanely beautiful ideas. From custom furniture, cabinetry, to window treatments and wallpaper, LWD has it covered.
