Lisa Sternfeld


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.

I am in love with that blue, it is soothing, tranquil and an oasis of calm. There is a certain "restraint" about Lisa's work that I find full of allure.
Thanks for yet another wonderful introduction.

You are the Best! I am thrilled to be a cheerleader (in some small way) on behalf of designers. Wishing you all the very best!

I agree that there are lots of talented design professionals that are yet to be discovered... unfortunately because of the time we are living many of them are unemployed. Hope this year brings them lots of luck and the opportunity to be discovered!!!

Linda Merrill said...

This project is indeed glorious - Lisa is a very talented designer and hopefully we will see her published nationally soon!

And Ronda - thanks so much for the Skirted Roundtable shoutout, very much appreciated!

Ronda,

So happy you featured a very talented designer who is new to me and I'm sure others. I'm always amazed to see the same designers featured over and over when there are so many others out there that have equal or more talent.

Thank you for your great blog, always so fun to read. Looking forward to a great 2010.

I don't know....this seems so stiff and cold to me. Classic but chilly. Would you want to curl up with a book in that room? Would you want to sit and visit with your best friend in that room? Too much like Cameron Diaz's house in The Holiday. I like more imperfection, personally. Beautiful imperfection, though...let me be clear on that!

Honestly, I really could imagine that room with a large roaring fire, sitting around with friends and having cocktails.
