Hi, I’m Lisa!

Welcome to Garrison Street Design Studio! I am Lisa, the creative mind behind all the madness here. Ever since I was very young I have had a passion for interior design and home decorating. At age 13 my favorite past time was touring model homes, (and it still is!) and in college I fell in love with DIY while making my first apartment a home. As a grown up, not much has changed. While I am an accountant by education, my true passion is creating beautiful spaces and giving others the courage to do the same. Beautiful homes don’t need million dollar budgets and I am here to show you how to do it! Every home has great potential to shine and inspire happiness, all you need is a little creativity ;)

Room by room, I am renovating our 1970s home and taking you along for the crazy ride. Sometimes renovating my mom’s house too! I love learning new things and there is a YouTube video for everything! Budgets are my jam, (that’s the accountant in me) so there is a lot of DIY going on here!

Standing by my side and supporting me every step of the way are my amazing husband Barry and our sweet boy Marvin. We are St. Louis transplants living in Denver, Colorado. We love wine, traveling, and cooking so don’t be surprised if those three things work their way into some of my posts.

I am so thankful you stopped by and hope I can inspire you to make your home a beautiful place you love too!

PSA – I tend to use A LOT of exclamation points and smiley faces. Hope you don’t mind! :)
