Spring Fashion + Design

Spring is (hopefully) just around the corner and I can’t wait for warmer weather.

I am loving everything floral and seeing it in both fashion and interiors. It takes me back to the 80’s when I started in the business and cottage florals were the “thing”, now the florals are mixed with modern. YUM

Whether it’s a major statement like a large floral wall or just a pillow, throw a bit into your mix.

2015 Oscars

I loved this movie and Wes Anderson’s washed out color palette.

I’m such a neutral girl in what I wear and in the spaces I design but if I decide to inject color, his washed out colors inspire me the most.

Enjoy the OSCARS!

Living etc Magazine…

Check out the bunk room we designed for our Connecticut client featured in one of my favorite magazines, Living Etc.

I love designing all rooms but a space like this was extra fun. The client wanted the room to serve as a playroom and bedroom for her children and their weekend guests in their country home.

Playing off the pitch of the roof line I was able to create a magical space that made the bunks feel more like a play house where kids could run up and down the real stairway and peer down into the play area below.  I used a rod with drape to create a tented off area for reading and hiding out.

Pinterest Praise!

Thanks to Lonny Mag for the Pinterest praise!

“This Lonny alum knows a good thing when she sees it.  If you’re the kind to be lured by gorgeous outdoor living spaces and clever entertaining ideas, Lisa Sherry is your new secret source.”

Inspiration finds me everywhere and I’m prone to pinning. 

Our own work is on the LSI Pinterest pages, plus so many other designers and tastemakers I admire.

Kudos to all!

And The Walls Come Tumbling Down

In February I began the phase 2 and final (happily for my husband) renovation on our kitchen. This past spring we took out the walls between the butler’s pantry and the dining room to have a larger, more open kitchen with eat in dining room.  Our house was built in 1926 and the days of having “help” and not wanting the kitchen to be seen by guests and its family members are long gone. At least in my world although I do enjoy an occasional catered soiree! We love to entertain and love when we are all in the kitchen prepping food together. FOOD IS LOVE. I thrive on re-designing spaces for my clients but I really struggle with my own which is why I rarely take the time for my own projects…it’s so much easier to busy myself with my clients and say “oops! No time for me!” My first design of my kitchen was lovely and simple and kept the breakfast room intact, we love the space with its black padded fabric walls and warmth it creates but wasn’t satisfied that it was doing the kitchen justice. For the size of the house, the kitchen needed to be larger. Once I did a new floor plan using the entire space I knew it was magic and ‘right’. So take a look at my beautiful breakfast room! I will miss it but know that I will love my larger kitchen more. Sometimes we just have to “let go”. BLOG_KITCHEN_TUMBLINGDOWN_new

Madness: Embrace It!

I really can’t say it better than Steve Jobs…

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes … the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things … they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
