Liz started out 19 years ago fabricating home décor items for other designers, and two years later she started her own business specializing in window treatments. The business has evolved into a full-service residential design firm with an emphasis on nontoxic materials and color therapy. Liz’s focus is style with comfort and beauty. Many people are afraid to make a mistake, so they don’t do anything. She helps overcome design dilemmas by being an objective observer and listener, and providing a game plan so clients can be comfortable with their decisions. She treats each home as if it were her own. Liz donated consulting and window treatments for the First Step Home.

Each month, Women’s Business Cincinnati asks readers to nominate women for a Top 10 list in a particular field.

​We are very pleased to recommend Liz for future interior decorating projects, where someone may need a creative and logical perspective on how best to use your existing furniture and art work complimented with the addition of several new pieces.

I must admit, when we first heard some of her recommendations, I was quite skeptical. But, after she implemented the changes and rearranged things...I was quite impressed and very pleased with the results. Liz has a no-nonsense approach to what stays and what goes. She also is very hands-on with shopping for new furniture and artwork to better accentuate the color schemes and stylized motifs that create a theme to help make a statement to anyone that visits your home.

We are both very proud of the look and feel we now make with our home...and it reflects our favorite colors, artwork and individual personalities. It is great to wake up every morning in a home that is inspiring and the environment makes you feel like you are definitely in your comfort zone. That is what we feel Liz has helped us achieve. We feel less cluttered and more organized than ever before.

Liz would be an awesome contributor to any home decorating project.

I really enjoyed working with Liz to update my house's interior. She made the process easy by doing the legwork for me; looking at furniture, buying sheets, selecting paint colors, picking out samples of glass tile for the kitchen backsplash for me to choose from and then scheduling its installation, etc., etc. All of this wouldn't have meant a thing if the finished product hadn't turned out the way it did, exceptional! I've hosted two parties since we finished and everybody who comes in the house comments on how fantastic it looks.
