ABOUT LISA SHIELDS
My name is Lisa. I am a professional organizer, stylist, and interior plant designer. I’ve had my own business for over 5 years. Prior to starting my own business, I worked as an assistant to A-list actors, agents, and film directors.
My clients range from Oscar award-winning actors to major film studio producers and many between. I work in all kinds of homes, with different people and different scenarios. Not everyone can afford the luxury of space but I know from experience there is always a solution. Even home has the potential to be beautiful.
Beautifying my surroundings and transforming live/work spaces has always been my passion. Spatial reasoning is my strongest skill. I enjoy organizing chaos. Efficiency is always the goal but not if it negates aesthetics. I like beautiful things and feel joy when I make someone’s home more beautiful.
I give away my ideas freely. You can employ me to make those ideas come to life or I will happily instruct you so you can accomplish them on your own. I have my own trusted resources that help me get jobs done (handymen, electricians, contractors). I often help my clients find house-keepers, landscapers, and gardeners.
I sometimes go into challenging homes. Most older homes were built in a time where people needed less space and had less stuff. When I go into craftsman homes or midcentury modern builds pre-1980 they are usually dark and have limited storage space. Having someone experienced to assess your home is always a good idea. I tell all my clients that even a consultation with a professional will most likely open your eyes to possibilities you never thought of, save you a fortune, and/or a headache.
My approach to organization focuses on working with items you already own to create clean inspiring spaces. I design for you, the individual client, bearing in mind your sensibilities and tastes. I work quickly and discretely and strive to relieve unnecessary stress and out of balance elements.
My experience staging homes gave me the confidence to trust my instincts. I know what to eliminate. I know what to move where to make a room flow better and feel more spacious. Space is luxury. Lighting is everything. I tell my clients that if I could do anything to improve a home if I could spend money only on one thing, it would always be the lighting.
Though I am primarily an organizer, I am also a stylist and interior plantscaper. My past experience includes working as an assistant to talented designers such as Sharon Carter and:
