It inspires her everyday and has throughout her career in design and life. Lisa’s father was an antique dealer in Aurora.

Rule Number 1.There are no rules.

Rule Number 2. Matchy match is dead.

This cute corner of Lisa Palmer Design’s office is full of the best thrifted finds! The chair and rug were purchased from The Millionaire’s Daughter Aurora, that cute vintage chair was only $22!

Rule Number 3. Remove one item from every room. We both know you don’t need it, want it, or use it. Less is always more. Always.

Rule Number 4. Your paint colour sets the vibe – not your furniture.
The painter becomes the painted. LPD
Lisa purchased the dresser and lamp from The Millionaire’s Daughter Aurora store and recently painted her son’s bedroom red!

Rule Number 5. Find a small source of inspiration (like a beloved piece of art, your favourite chair, a vacation token or photo etc) and build out your room from that point. Your needs and comfort matter most to your space.
