Michelle Lisac, ASID

Principal Designer/Owner

Michelle Lisac has been designing beautiful spaces for over a decade.

As the daughter of a contractor she grew up visiting jobsites and living in a home that was always in a some stage of remodel. After graduating from San Jose State University with a Bachelors degree in Business Marketing she decided to follow her heart and sought out a career in Interior Design. She worked as a designer for two boutique interior design firms in the San Francisco Bay Area before setting out on her own. Michelle’s specialty is in high-end homes and has had the privilege of working on residences for Silicon Valley CEO’s and Venture Capitalists throughout the Bay Area as well as a notable multi-home estate in Woodside.

Michelle’s commitment to detail and a passion for art and design form the foundation for her expertise. Michelle enjoys the design process and works closely with clients, contractors and vendors to bring concepts to reality from the floor plan to the finishing touches.

When not designing and running the business Michelle can be found trying to keep up with her 14 year old son.
