To Lisa Kooistra, interior design is more than just a job. Interior design is a labour of love. It’s a passion and a lifestyle. It’s a means of expressing her creativity to those around her. Lisa’s desire to inspire and be inspired led her to pursue the professional path of interior design, which has been her focus for well over decade.
Lisa prides herself on designing uniquely curated, highly personalized interiors, with lifestyle-based design solutions that echo each client’s character.

The perfect home is something that most people aspire to, but very few can actually achieve – that is, without a little professional help along the way. What does an interior designer actually do, and how can one help you achieve your dream home?
You may have lived in a home for years, but somehow it still feels incomplete. It’s furnished and lived-in, but it could just be lacking those finishing touches that transform a house into a home. Enter the world of accessories.
Nature has always inspired design of every kind, but even more so throughout the last two years, as we increasingly seek comfort, simplicity, and a slower pace in the face of a frantic, pandemic-fueled world outside.
When a white room is not executed correctly, it can fall flat. But it has the potential to be multi-dimensional, luxurious and warm. Here are some key ways to tailor your space when decorating and working all in white.
Known for simplicity, function and casual comfort, the Scandinavian aesthetic has inspired homes around the globe.
You’ve undoubtedly heard the term “forever home,” but does it actually exist? Every few years in our lifetime, whether on purpose or not, our circumstances change – a new job, a new spouse, a new child, a change of scenery.
We had the great pleasure of working with Lisa and Ryan on our vintage home! The worked entailed a complete renovation of the basement, furniture selection and decor throughout, and custom designed millwork in select rooms to improve the overall functionality in our compact home.
Simply put, Lisa is inherently gifted in design and decor. Most impressive, she provided solutions to issues we hadn’t yet had the foresight to recognize. Lisa was patient with our decision-making process, and exceptionally gracious in fielding our many emails and questions. Ryan and his team worked tirelessly, stayed on schedule, maintained a clean work area, and were always available. Both Lisa and Ryan are experts in this field, they made our home everything that we needed it to be and more.
Thank you for all of your hard work and for making the process and pandemic disruption quite painless. If we ever have another design project to take on Lisa and Ryan will be our first call!"
