Lisa Davenport has been designing fine custom interiors and exteriors for 25 years. Her passion for design began during childhood through her mother's artistic talent and her father's mechanical ability. That path led her to become an interior designer and since then she’s spent decades crafting beautiful interiors that go beyond aesthetics, aiming to create an unforgettable experience for her clients. In 2016, she realized that the stories behind her designs felt incomplete without the inclusion of the makers, leading her to fall in love with the stories crafted by makers, and American Craftsmanship. Today, her designs reflect her clients' personalities while celebrating the rich heritage of American Craftsmanship.
Throughout her career, Lisa’s work has been featured in prestigious publications such as Modern Farmhouse Style, Aspire, Flower, Luxury Pools, Florida Design, Design & Décor, and New England Home. With a design style that can be best described as "Cashmere & Blue Jeans®," Lisa creates spaces that exude a sense of comfort and elegance.
While Lisa has many beloved projects, one that stands out is the Little House, a labor of love and a personal mission to showcase that homes can be built or remodeled using almost exclusively American-made products, without being cost-prohibitive. Beyond her design work, Lisa's three favorite things are the proof copy of Life with MIL, a memoir she authored, her kitchen wallpaper that hold her grandfather's handwritten recipes, and the home she’s created with her husband Joe.
