Hi, I’m Lisa.
With over ten years of experience in the Architectural and Interior Design industry, after the birth of my son I decided to open my own practice in June of 2013.
Based in Arlington, Virginia, Lisa Garcia Architecture +Interior Design has become a design resource for families in the Northern Virginia/DC Metro Area that want to personalize and make the most of their homes. I know there are lots of families just like ours looking to refresh and maximize the functionality of their spaces, and I love working with clients to create homes that are uniquely their own!
I’m passionate about design, and believe a thoughtful, authentic design can genuinely improve a family’s quality of life.
I believe great design isn’t a product; it’s a process. I ask lots of questions to get to know you and your family to make sure the design decisions we make are the right ones for how you live.
I believe a well designed home can make the tasks of daily life simpler, quicker, and more enjoyable. (That said I’m afraid I don’t have the power to make someone start to like doing the laundry; although I can help you design a place that encourages making it happen!)
I have a passion for old homes; I believe that whenever possible their unique details and character should be enhanced and preserved while updating elements that no longer function for modern life.
I believe a well designed home should reflect both its owner’s personality and respond to its surrounding community’s character.
I believe trends are for throw pillows (and the occasional, stunning pair of shoes). At the end of a successful interior design project, your space reflects your style and feels like your home.
I believe that whatever you call it – eco-friendly, sustainability, or “green” design – we have a responsibility to make thoughtful design decisions that take into account the health and well being of our families and the world’s limited resources.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about my Design Process or Architectural and Interior Design Services.
