Lisa has a business background and has spent fifteen years working on various interior design projects and kitchen and bathroom remodels. She has designed and coordinated numerous projects from powder rooms to house additions to outdoor living spaces. Knowing the time was right to purchase her own business, Lisa, a longtime area resident, bought Saums Interiors of Hopewell in 2014. Lisa believes that listening to clients and observing the details of their surroundings enables her to provide excellent outcomes. Managing the team, making smart choices, and creating workable timelines ensures that each project runs smoothly and on time.
“I believe that a home should reflect the people who live in it. I have 10 years of experience in the Greater Princeton area and Philadelphia in every aspect of interior design: selecting paint colors, designing custom window treatments, furniture layout and space planning using CAD (Computer Aided Design). I have extensive experience in furnishing and staging model homes and I know the importance of fine details when designing a space.
I listen to my clients’ needs and wants and I will do everything I can to help them achieve the look they want and keep within their budget. I don’t have a ‘signature’ look because I believe the rooms I design should reflect my clients’ taste, not mine. My own aesthetic is simple elegance that is also comfortable.”
Sally comes from an extensive background in business and the arts. Her previous experience includes her considerable work in the tile and fashion industries. She now brings her creative talent to the world of Home Staging to Sophia Rose Designs. Sally has a keen eye and a unique capability assessing what your home will need in order for a buyer to get that “emotional connection” so your home can sell quickly and for top dollar!
