She believes a home should be designed holistically - maximizing function, comfort, and overall wellness.
After a decade of designing and managing multi-million dollar corporate interior projects for world-renowned clients, she brings that same rigor and attention to detail to her residential projects.
Lesley's design philosophy emphasizes the intersection of collaboration, attention to detail and intention. She believes that this seamless integration of architectural feasibility, artistic expression, and psychological congruence forms a collective core that should be evident in any successful interior space.
Interior Decorators can help with the styling and finishing of a space, helping to choose color palettes, furniture, and other details. They aren’t qualified to participate in structural planning or renovations, and don’t often have the formal training or education of a certified designer.
Interior Designers can move a project from initial construction bids all the way to final touches. In concert with architects and contractors, Interior designers apply creative and technical solutions within a structure that are functional, attractive and beneficial to the occupants' quality of life and culture. Designs respond to and coordinate with the building shell and acknowledge the physical location and social context of the project. Designs must adhere to code and regulatory requirements and encourage the principles of environmental sustainability. Interior Designers are required to have an advanced degree in Interior Design, special certifications in the field, and knowledge of construction requirements and codes.
