Hello, my name is Lissa and I am an interior designer living in Atlanta, GA. For as long as I can remember I have been a lover of interior design and yes I also rearranged my room often as a kid. Interior Design has always been something I was interested in.

When time came to make a decision on what I wanted to be when I grew up my mom mentioned I should look at schools that had Interior Design as an option. I did just that and graduated with a BS in Interior Design in 2004 from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. I am huge proponent for getting a degree if anyone wants to make interior design their career. You really do learn so much and come out with a great foundation to then learn even more in the real world.

After graduating I moved to Atlanta and have worked for a few architecture and hospitality interior design firms. Big huge spaces with big huge budgets….lots of fun and lots of work. I have learned so much about design and am still learning to this day. I now work for an international hotel brand and love it!

I also met my husband in Atlanta and we now live in a (rented) townhome that we work at making a cozy home for the two of us and our cute pup Wallace….not a big project or big budget. We both work full time and then spend what free time we have working little by little to make our home a place we love. Don’t worry we also get out and spend time in this great city we live in too. Someday we hope to have a place to call our own that we can really dig into. I can’t wait to take a sledge hammer to my first wall, and tile my first backsplash.

I started After Adornment as a place to corral all of my design ideas and inspiration. There is always something going on in my head whether it is a cool new idea or just something really pretty that I saw. I also hope that I can teach you some of the things I have learned along the way. I am always learning something new.

So, thanks for stopping by my little piece of the internet and I hope you come back often. If you ever have questions about me or just design in general please don’t hesitate. I would be more than happy to answer anything you may want to know.
