A Bountiful Beauty
Craftsman Contemporary


When it comes to an ability to skillfully mix pattern and texture, Kristina Weaver is without equal in the design industry. She has an ability to take any space, regardless of the design theme, and make it feel pulled together effortlessly. Good design should be effortless, it should feel natural and never contrived. This lovely residence, located in Bountiful, Utah is no exception. The client had a strong love for Craftsman influenced design; lots of simple millwork, glass, symmetry and interior architectural detailing. In addition, they didn’t want it to feel to the period, but rather fresh, contemporary and new. Working with her colleague, Cristen Cagle, Kristina combined traditional Arts and Crafts elements such as traditional millwork and cabinetry, with fun, playful and high energy tile, stone and even copper. The result is one of the most exceptional kitchens of Kristina’s career, and a home that is functional, warm and inviting. This is a client who uses their kitchen, which afforded Kristina the opportunity to include elements such as a hidden “bake center” and concealed storage for a bevy of small appliances and tools for cooking and baking. To further enhance the Craftsman appeal of the home, Kristina introduced interior brick to previously bland walls, and commissioned 4 stunning art glass “windows” highlighting the Four Seasons. A comfortable master suite and elegant bath, include a playful brick ceiling and contemporary concrete sinks. This home has it all, but in addition to wonderful cohesive design, Kristina has also provided spaces that will used and enjoyed for many years to come. For a busy, young and active family, this is the perfect place to kick back, enjoy something delicious prepared in the gorgeous kitchen, visit and feel like home.

Red Ledges Reimagined - Mountain Contemporary
2017 Park City Showcase of Homes


Lisman Studio was approached early on to provide design services for the Pure Haven Homes entry into the 2017 Park City Showcase of Homes. It was essential to the builder, Pure Haven, that the Lisman design team was involved from the get-go in selecting interior finishes for the project. Kristina Weaver worked her magic with tile, stone, flooring, cabinetry and interior architectural detailing. Closely supported by her design team, Cristen Cagle and Megan Ozosky, the trio set to work establishing theming and color palettes that would complement the Mountain Contemporary look of the residence. One of the success stories of the 2017 Showcase, the Pure Haven entry actually sold before the Showcase even started. The secret was Kristina’s ability to create and infuse a space with a design that would have appeal to any potential visitor. Stunningly beautiful wallcoverings, streamlined and contemporary furnishings and a world class art collection all came together seamlessly to create a home that is not only breathtaking, cozy and comfortable, but also able to hold its own against the stunning views from virtually every room of the home.

Colorful Cottage
A Quick Refresh


One of the best services offered through Lisman Studio is the installation of accessories, artwork and plants. To our team at Lisman, these finishing touches help unify a space and contribute to establishing character. For this charming smaller home in West Jordan, Utah, Scott and his colleague, Holly Jimenez, utilized many of the clients current furnishings as a starting point for their design scheme. Scott incorporated a delicate palette of blush, pale blue and cream to infuse the rooms with light and delicate touches of color. These clever choices help all of the rooms to feel more spacious, congruent, and infuses them with personality without ever feeling contrived. Charming accessories showcasing the client’s interests and personality. New area rugs, an additional smattering of new furnishings and fresh lighting all come together to give the home a polished, refined and welcoming appeal, seldom found in spaces of this scale. Beautiful things do come in small packages!

Rock A Bye Baby
A Nursery That Sings


When your name is as cool as Axel Ray, you’ve definitely got to have an awesome “crib” to match. As interior designers, few projects are more fun and inspiring than a nursery. And when the baby’s dad is a celebrity radio DJ, things really start to get interesting. How about a nursey designed around a rock and roll music theme? The trick was how to make the room feel playful and age appropriate for Axel, without making it come off like a Hard Rock Café. The clients felt Belle took on the challenge and pulled it off beautifully. Vintage LP’s in shadow box frames, boom box “cassette” wallpaper, and a roman valance made from guitar pick printed fabric, really make this room sing! A charming book shelf and stuffed animal storage give the room a distinctly kid’s point of view. In addition, Blake Lisman created some clever visual graphics to bring the whole room together, including inspiring quotes from musicians. This will be a room that can grow with Axel for several years, or at least until he decides to start his own rock band!

Federal Heights Refresh
A study in simplicity


When a tired and charming Federal Heights residence was ready for a freshening, the clients turned to Lisman Studio to bring back the beauty. New creamy white cabinetry brought a kitchen back to life and playful accessories in a custom designed hutch give the space a cozy feel. While stark high gloss white cabinetry in the master suite was replaced with calming matte shades of pale green. Overly ornamental door profiles and dated hardware were reborn as simple tailored silhouettes, with sparkling new hardware in polished nickel. The master bath had room for lounge seating, so full advantage was taken of the substantial footprint to add comfortable generously padded club chairs in a durable fabric for easy care and maintenance. The design team added plush area rugs, a recessed television and a beverage center to enhance this unfussy, functional and elegant space. A hallway guest bath was refreshed with new painted and glazed cabinetry and stunning new marble countertops. A Jacobean wallcovering brings softness and style to this gracious and welcoming room.

Harvard Hot Shot
Style to spare


The first time Scott Ross visited this established Harvard Avenue residence, it was dark, cramped, and dated. Traffic flow was hampered by an dysfunctional 1920’s floor plan leading to a tiny Kitchen and virtually no Master Bath on the second floor of the home. The homeowners, a young professional couple, wanted something vibrant, stylish and spacious where they could entertain friends and relax after a busy day. The extensive 6 month remodel took this charming little English Tudor from drab to fabulous; blowing out walls, bumping up rooflines and creating spaces the clients had only ever dreamed of. Scott and his team introduced one of his delightful and playful color palettes, mixed with pops of bling and fur to enliven rooms that had not seen a sense of style for a long time. The new Master Bath is a study in textures, tones and color. Beautiful stone and mosaic tile details throughout the home pull the rooms together beautifully, and provide playful nods to the original home’s architecture. Check out those profiles in the pass through areas! Arches never looked so good.

Mansion on South Temple
A Period Restoration for Today


Lisman Studio thought it would be a great opportunity to show off some of our experience in staging while also featuring one of our recently completed projects. Located on Historic South Temple, in Salt Lake City, Utah, the historic Walter Lyne Mansion, is recorded on the National Register of Historic Places. Lisman Studio was hired to complete a full design revamp of the property, while carefully respecting it’s historical heritage. Working closely with historical documents, and a sketched set of plans from a 1970’s “remodel”, the Lisman Team went to work researching the property and diligently moving forward to bring it back to life. The home had been abandoned for over a decade and had suffered considerable neglect. Fortunately the new property owner had a vision to bring the property back to its original grandeur, while converting the residence for use as his attorney’s office on the main floor and adding a handsome private residence on the second level.

Woodwork was refurbished, doors replaced, walls added over time were removed and 11 bathrooms renovated. Period antique chandeliers were located by LaMar Lisman to replace the current inappropriate light fixtures installed during the 1970’s. Wallcoverings reproduced from the 1800’s by Bradbury and Bradbury created instant period panache and added some much needed pattern and color to the private quarters of the home. And to complete the look for our photo shoot, the dining room is staged for a Victorian High Tea. Lisman Studio offers full holiday décor and event staging at our client’s request. It is our feeling that combining tasteful interior design with appropriate holiday, party and seasonal décor is definitely the “icing on the cake!”

Southern Mountain Stunner
Style in the sky


When new residents of Salt Lake City found themselves with a beautiful new home and few furnishings, they turned to Scott Ross to pull their home together. Nothing like starting off in a new town without a chair to sit on! This fantastic home with architectural style to spare had one big problem; large west facing windows. Beautiful windows for mountain views, but beastly hot in the afternoon full sun. With a substantial portion of the client’s budget needing to go towards appropriate and insulated window coverings, Scott Ross became innovative with a frugal budget to finish off the remaining space. Working with a few of the client’s current possessions, he managed to pull together a comfortable room with great flair. Comfortable seating, combined with new carpeting and a refresh of the fireplace turned this empty cave of a room into a handsome gathering place for entertaining and relaxing.

Salt Lake City RESIDENCE
Downtown Design


When clients decide to downgrade from a large residence to a smaller, more manageable home, it can prove challenging for a designer. What to keep and what must go is always a delicate balance. Kristina Weaver worked with the very best and most important possessions this client had, carefully editing where necessary. By providing a design backdrop of simple cabinetry and a subtle color palette, the clients treasured art collection makes a delightful and refreshing statement on a space that could come off with a builder's spec personality. Moving from a large mountain home to a pied et terre in the city, brought about an exciting and welcome change to these clients; an easier, more carefree lifestyle with a closer location to nearby downtown venues. Kristina thoughtfully pulled together a pleasant, relaxing space, which still feels very personalized to her clients. Hopefully they will feel at home, surrounded by their lovely art collection for many years to come.

Tired Tuscan Transformation


When homeowners approached Lisman Studio to renovate their tired Tuscan themed home, the charge was a challenging one; recreate a contemporary space for their outdated kitchen and great room without disrupting walls, electrical, or the layout of the space. Kristina Weaver began by taking out dysfunctional and dated Knotty Alder kitchen cabinets, replacing them with sleek slab doors with a continuous wood grain pattern. Brown and gold granite was switched out with bright, white marble, low maintenance, quartz countertops, immediately refreshing the space. New upscale appliances and modern plumbing tie everything together. Overstuffed tapestry furniture in the Great Room was replaced with clean line furnishings. The chunky alder mantle is gone, replaced with contemporary dry stack white stone, as well as the bland beige carpeting, giving way to chic geometric grey carpeting. The kitchen dining table and chairs, rarely used, but always in the way, was changed out to four comfortable swivel chairs - perfect for relaxing and conversation. The custom designed buffet and coffee table showcase Kristina's ability to infuse all of her spaces with unique accents that reflect her client's budget and taste.

Salt Lake City Residence
Small and Precious Things


Not all of Lisman Studio projects are grand and costly. In this particular renovation of an intimate home in one of Salt Lake’s most historical neighborhoods, Scott Ross rose to the design challenge beautifully. Working in small spaces can often be tricky. Through careful planning and execution Scott created a wonderful feeling of creative harmony in the rooms, all while working within spatially restricted areas. He started by freshening and unifying the rooms with a bright, cheerful and unexpected color palette. Through the subtle introduction of large scale pattern and organic texture he pulled off the small footprint seamlessly. Traffic flows well throughout the spaces, and rooms that are comfortable for this professional couple to come home and relax in, also adapt as inviting areas for entertaining. We always enjoy watching how Scott introduces a touch of glamour into his designs. His rooms always seem to sparkle, but never in an overpowering way. His clever use of cool shades of blue infuses the rooms with serenity and calm, but Scott’s rooms are never boring – or predictable. Once again, Scott proves here that truly lovely things and great design do come in small packages!

Cottonwood Residence
In Grand Manor


A stunning and classically beautiful Georgian inspired residence in Cottonwood, Utah, becomes yet again another wonderful backdrop for one of Belle Kurudzija’s finest designs. Her quiet restraint in design echoes throughout every room. From the soft and delicate formal Living Room, to the masculine and rich Study; this home’s stately architecture speaks of elegance, refinement and grace. A proud and important Entry Hall becomes a clever backdrop for crystal, sparkling metals and even a crisp navy blue lacquer chest. To keep spaces from feeling contrived, Belle shifted from a sea traditional and expected landscapes to artwork featuring multiple themes; from traditional to subtle contemporary. As is often evidenced in Belle’s work, few things in any room ever scream “look at me!” – but rather everything she places in her design serves to compliment and embrace whatever is next to it. This results in design harmony and comes off as effortless, never feeling forced, trendy or contrived. Showing her ability to work with softer pastel palettes as well as bolder and rich color schemes, this welcoming residence offers a timeless snapshot of beauty and the ease of well executed design. Watch for more to come as Belle begins to move into additional areas of this grand home. Hopefully the best is yet to come!

West Cottonwood Residence
Gray No More!


With "gray" being the current design buzzword in interiors, this home encompasses all that we love about gray, while still showcasing the strength of introducing vibrant and unexpected pops of color to enliven spaces. A home designed for comfort and entertaining with a wonderful indoor/outdoor connection. A spacious kitchen for a gourmet cook is the perfect place to enjoy great food and wonderful company. Spaces connect seamlessly with a continuity of colors, materials, textures and (you knew this was coming), 50 shades of gray.

Sandy Residence
Welcome Home


A wonderful example of adding color to a rather brown and gray rustic room, infusing it with texture and interest. Warm hues combined with the existing wood and stone provide a space both gracious and welcoming. If new design elements look like they have always been there – a successful design marriage has been achieved.

East Bench Residence
Clean Line Contemporary


Sometimes there is nowhere to go but up! A tired and sad master bath suite, it was due for a major overhaul. This stunning and sweeping update owes much of its success to its simplicity in design and a clever grid of large tilework that unifies and opens up the room. Sparkling bath hardware completes the look.

Draper Residence
Sexy in the Suburbs


This clever adaptation of a residence previously overdesigned in an old world theme showcases that in the hands of a deft professional great design conquers all. Gone are the enormous fussy wrought iron chandeliers and heavy drapery treatments. Now reinvented with stunning custom contemporary lighting and exposed windows filling the spaces with natural light. A large mural of columnar birch trees behind the master bed creates a vertical rhythm in an otherwise bland space. Bright, fresh fabrics and furniture profiles immediately update the traditional paneled walls throughout the home.

St. Mary's Residence
Clean Line and Traditional


This full renovation of an existing residence built in the 1960’s provided a much needed facelift and lesson in function for this active family. A chic neutral palette flows throughout the residence, creating a feeling of unity and organization. Comfortable seating sets the tone for family conversation and relaxation. The family got to keep their residence in an area they loved, while essentially having a new, functional family home for their future use.

South Temple Residence
Refined and Welcoming


Sometimes little things do come in small packages! This small South Temple Condominium had its owners wondering if they should move. They desperately needed more space! New built-in cabinets, and doors that open up adjoining rooms gave the client much needed elbow room and finally, storage space. The custom doors are hand painted in an Italianate design, giving the rooms a rich European flair – in addition to concealing practical storage where you would least expect.
