What Lesley Myrick Art + Design is All About

I transform boring beige spaces into kickass colorful homes with an offbeat edge that are livable, delightful, and unexpected.

LIVABLE. Rooms should be stylish and also super functional. There’s no point designing for some sort of ideal life. The reality of how you live should dictate your design choices, and your life will be better for it. For reals.

DELIGHTFUL. Your home should be a haven and a source of delight. Your aesthetic choices should make you squeal with giddiness. If you’re not feeling heart-flutters of happiness, something’s missing.

UNEXPECTED. Every room needs a little weird thrown in – an element of surprise. Love that giant brass chair shaped like a hand? Let’s totally use it. If you truly love something, it belongs in your home.

Interior design is all about the mix, and my strength is curating existing elements and arranging them from a unique design perspective so the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. Working within constraints and designing creative solutions that make life better and prettier is totally my jam. My interiors are a quirky but livable mix of vintage and modern, rustic and polished, color and neutrals, masculine and feminine. Matchy-matchy is boring. Let’s have some fun.

If you’re down with a little edginess but don’t want to deal with a deluge of design decisions, I’ve got your back. I work best with busy professionals who have a vague idea of what they want, but don’t have the time or energy to muddle through the minutiae of the design process – they just want results. My mission is to empower homeowners to make confident design decisions throughout the process. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, executive, or just someone attracted to a creative edge, let’s work together to create a kickass interior that makes you psyched to be home.
