Interior Design by Lisa K. Hays Melbourne FL home furnishings

A home is your retreat away from a busy life. Or perhaps it's your escape from those chilly northern winters. Either way, it is your home, and it's important that how it looks, feels and lives represents you and not the home next door or the one down the street. Your home should reflect you, and your tastes and preferences.

What I do best is create beautiful residential interiors that resonate with warmth and a graceful practicality. Whether your home is the hub for an on-the-go family, a place to entertain friends and family, or simply the subtropical paradise you cherish, the comforts of home should embrace and surround you.

Based in Viera, Florida, I work in Brevard and Indian River Counties. My approach to working with clients is unique because I began decorating homes after graduating from Washington State University, fulfilling a busy corporate career, and living internationally and in several states. My passion and love for crafting beautiful interiors began long before I actually chose to pursue it as a profession.


A home is a very personal space so it's vital that you be at ease with the person you choose to define your home. My initial consultation is about getting to know you and you getting to know me. Listening to you is a big part of our first meeting because I need to go away understanding clearly what you need and want. Clear direction, communication and decisions will guide you and I to an outcome that will thrill us both.

Design options can become an endless wish list. Taking time to consider how a particular space should function provides a framework in which the furnishings, window treatments, accessories, colors, and so on, can then take precedence. When the business of deciding how a space should work is finished, then the enjoyable task of considering the many ways to bring out the beauty of the space can begin.

Transforming basic rooms into picture perfect spaces happens when I present you with decor choices, using pieces from a variety of companies that offer enduring quality and service. I won't show you pieces from a company that I wouldn't use in my own home. And I won't show you pieces from a company that has given me past quality or customer service issues.

When choosing furnishings I think it's important that you have a range of choices. For example, sometimes a sofa needs to be just that, a sofa. And sometimes that sofa needs to be something extra special. One of my clients wanted a sofa that was beautiful from all sides because it was going to float in the center of her living room. She entertains a lot so we wanted something that could be very functional, yet dazzling. We selected a sofa upholstered in a sable brown velvet that featured 110 tufted buttons around the sides and back that looked like they were covered in pave diamonds. This sofa is the place where my client entertains and drinks red wine; it functions perfectly. And with those buttons, it does indeed dazzle!

A space becomes a little more special when complementing décor is chosen. Good lighting is a lot like accessorizing your outfit with jewelry. The right lighting can enhance the elegance and sophistication in any space and become the "jewelry" that finishes the room. It can also be the inspiration for the room's other décor options. For example: I used a chandelier in a dining room that was hand-finished and featured encased glass gems in smoky quartz, brown, amber and peridot green colors. To play off the glass gems in the chandelier and to help the chandelier's light reflect down from the ceiling, my client and I chose to install an iridescent green glasstile in the vaulted portion of the dining room's ceiling. The result is elegant, sophisticated, dramatic and unexpected—all at the same time.

Defining your home's interior is a collaborative process between you and I, but the outcome should reflect you and how you want to live in your home. My role is to guide you through the process and manage the many details of ensuring the final result is one done in a timely, quality and service-oriented fashion that produces a beautiful outcome.
