Design Talk No. 6 with Glam Gal Lisa

Updated: Feb 11, 2019

Heyyy everyone and welcome back to Design Talk. This month we are speaking to the most luxurious girly girl on Instagram!

Lisa of @homeinspirationlulu is not only an incredible interior designer, she is also a physician and mom to 4 (yes 4!) children. Ahhh how she actually has finds the time to design her beautiful home and share it with us all I will never know.

Ammmm maybe I should be asking her about timekeeping and general life management instead of design? :)

But no no this is design talk so let's see what advice Lisa has for us this month :)

1: So, Lisa, first off your home is beautiful! What would you say best describes your home style?

Thank you so much Aoife, that is so very sweet. I love so many components of multiple different styles.  I enjoy a little bit of heirloom, a touch of Parisian glam, and a smithereens of bohemian luxe.  However, I will have to say my ultimate style is rustic glam because I gravitate towards simple, neutral earthy looks, but I definitely need at least a little sparkle to get me through my day.  

2: I LOVE rustic glam! Have you any tips for readers who want to create a home like yours?

Yes.  Try to find lots of neutrals and that way adding different pops of colours throughout the seasons is an easy venture.

3: What was the Biggest Challenge you faced in designing your home?

Figuring out how to make it kid-friendly.  I try to avoid sharp corners or glass tables.  So I have tried to find as many oval or round coffee and end tables as possible.  With two twin toddlers running around, I don't want to worry about them getting hurt. Also, I try to find as many storage pieces as possible

4: Oh my, I can't imagine looking after two toddlers and having your own design business! Go you. Which is your favourite room in your home and why?

I honestly love my bedroom.  It feels luxe and cozy and I made it into a nice haven and retreat after working and running after the kids all day. I love the velvet tufted headboard, and lots of white smooth hotel feel bedding.  I have some faux fur rugs in front of the bed as well, and crystal lamps that add to a glam feel.

5: What is your favourite room to design in any home?

Probably a living room.  I love trying different couch and rug layouts, and playing with shelf styling and coffee table styling.  That is so much fun!
