Fall Happenings at LHI


Design Assistant® Turns One!

Our Design Assistant service is celebrating its one year anniversary and we could not be happier at how well it has been received! We registered the trademark for the Design Assistant name and the service it provides. We have loved working with all of our Design Assistant clients during this first year to deliver room designs that give our clients all the tools they need to make their design dreams a reality. We are just getting ready to work on our first out-of-state project as well as completing our Design Assistant collaboration with Olivia Fierro of Arizona's Family Channel 3 for her new Family Room and Kitchen!

Design Assistant is a great way to get organized, select materials and have a plan for a remodel of my kitchen and dining rooms. I was able to see ideas in 3d format and have drawings ready for my contractor at our first meeting. In addition, Lygia’s suggestions for finishes and furniture choices worked perfectly and Design Assistant truly helped me with my entire remodel process.

New Design Assistant® Service

When we first launched Design Assistant a year ago it was meant to be a decorating service only, but when we were presented with a few opportunities for small scale remodel projects using the service, we jumped at the chance and they were a great success!  We found that there is a real need for a professional designer's help when tacking a bathroom or kitchen redesign. With that, we are so excited to announce expanding our Design Assistant services to include Remodel projects.  Contact me for more information. Visit our Design Assistant page.

New Project: San Clemente

Lastly, we wanted to share our newly photographed New Construction project in San Clemente, California! The client came to us needing help from start to finish in building and furnishing a new home he was building in the coastal town. in Orange County. We loved collaborating with him on all stages of the project over the course of about a year and especially loved the coastal transitional feel he wanted. The pops of color and graphic prints really set it apart and made it feel really special.   View the project.

New Project: Redondo Beach


We are excited to share our latest full service interior design project we just wrapped up in Redondo Beach, California. Like most of our projects, this home was designed for a family so the furnishings and finishes had to hold up to kids without sacrificing style. The home is on the site of its original footprint but expanded up to accommodate more square footage and modern accommodations for enjoying quintessential Southern California living. It has four bedrooms and three bathrooms plus an office, a laundry room and a large deck. Our clients wanted a crisp and clean coastal look with a few modern touches and that’s what we delivered.

Introducing Our New Service: Design Assistant


We are so excited to announce our new decorating service called Design Assistant.  If you're interested in refreshing a specific area in your home, Design Assistant will help you discover the benefits of working with a professionally trained interior designer while maintaining your budget and avoiding costly mistakes.

Here's how it works...

Fill out our design questionnaire and we'll set up a call to discuss budget and scope of your project. 

We'll either visit your home or you'll send us photographs and measurements of your space(s).  There are no location restrictions because all correspondence can be done by email.  Our team establishes a design direction.

A custom box is sent to you and you will receive: source list with links to recommended items, tear sheets, furniture layout drawn to scale, and samples of fabrics, finishes, and paint colors.


And...Voila!  For more information about all of our offerings, please visit our services page or contact us.
