Welcome back to our blog series, Designer Highlight, where we ask our designers 10 questions to get to know them! This week, we have Tish L., one of our design consultants! Find out more about Tish below, from who in her life inspires her the most to the best part of working at Visionary Homes and her best decor advice.
"Vision/mood boards are a great way to piece together your style and show how the different materials play together with different textures creating a cohesive feeling. In this image the style I was going for was urban industrial. Bringing in the earthy colors, hardwood and leather, to what some people consider a cold aesthetic really warms up the industrial style, creating a cozy vibe." – Tish L.
A Bit About Tish L.
I have loved being creative since I was a little girl. Helping my mom with projects around the house and our runs to the good ol' Home Depot were my favorite. I would collect any free sample of anything they had such as counter top samples, flooring samples, cabinet color samples. I was always interested in how a space could change so much with some hard work and how the change made the space feel so inviting and cozy. It was something to feel proud of as well, to see the before and after of a home project. It could be as simple as creating some DIY bar to fit in our odd shaped rental homes or tearing down walls to help family with their larger projects. I wasn’t afraid to get my hands dirty and learn.
