Meet Lesley Myrick
interior designer. canadian/american. head shaver.
Hey there - I'm Lesley Myrick. I'm an adventurous, organized, and passionate interior designer in the Atlanta, Georgia area (and I work with clients all over the US and Canada, too).
I'm originally from Canada and have lived and worked in Toronto, ON; Los Angeles, CA; Waco, TX; and now Macon, GA. I earned an honors diploma in interior design from Sheridan College in 2005 and launched Lesley Myrick Art + Design in 2015.
I work with smart, cool people (hey, that's you!) who understand the value of hiring a design pro but are bored with the status quo. They’re looking for something - and someone - different.
I help homeowners bust out of boring and help interior designers launch kickass businesses they love.
I'd love to help you bust out of boring, too.
What Lesley's all about
I’ve always wanted to be an interior designer. From a young age, I realized there was something magical in spending time in a space that looked awesome, functioned perfectly, and was organized and uncluttered.
I used to ask my dad to rearrange my bedroom furniture because I was too small to move it myself. One summer, I spent every weekend trying out a new furniture layout in my room. And I’ve lost track of how many times I re-painted those walls as a teenager. (Sky blue, lime green, vivid magenta...)
I’m passionate about designing spaces that push past the status quo. People so often settle for safe options when decorating – they’re afraid to make a mistake, and they don’t have the confidence to let their true selves shine. I’m committed to helping people bust out of boring because life is too short to waste it with beige walls!
And here's the truth about why I want to help you bust out of boring: I lost my brother in a motorcycle accident at age 26 - and he missed out on so much possibility ahead of him. My father worked his whole life so that he could enjoy retirement – and now he’s in poor health and unable to do so. I’ve seen so many people, family members included, not get the time or opportunities they hoped for in life. And that totally sucks.
Listen up: you may not get more time in the future to create a home you love. You might not be healthy enough to enjoy your home for as long as you’d like. So screw beige. Screw safe! If you love teal, embrace it with an incredible teal sofa you love to curl up on with your kids. If you love pattern and color, let’s make your home a mix of patterns, colors, and styles that feel uniquely, beautifully, authentically you. Your home won’t look like every other one on the block, and that’s okay! In fact, I think it’s totally awesome.
After ten years in the interior design industry, I launched Lesley Myrick Art + Design in 2015 with a clear mission: to empower you to embrace what you love and make confident design decisions.
What You're All About, Rockstar.
It’s easy to feel intimidated by interior design. Too many choices leads to feeling majorly overwhelmed. Not knowing "your style" means you're scared of making an expensive mistake. Either way, you play it safe and feel stuck in a home that's a total snooze-fest.
I know you’re down with a little edginess (you rebel, you!) but don't know where to start when it comes to decorating your home. You’re a busy professional with a creative streak who has a vague idea of what you want, but don’t have the time or energy to deal with the design process. It's Overwhelm City, and you're feeling like its stressed-out Mayor.
"It’s funny to me that people who will readily hire a personal trainer, nutritionist, or hairstylist don’t automatically also sign on a design professional. If you start your day in a home that functions flawlessly and brings you joy, then there’s less need for the rest."
