You can marry and be faithful to a neutral.But there’s nothing wrong with being flirtatious towards color.

- LaMar Lisman

LaMar Lisman has been involved in the Interior Design Industry for nearly three decades. A graduate of the University of Utah, his first brush with design started with his career as a Merchandise Manager for the fashion retailer Nordstrom. As part of a product development team, LaMar was able to explore endless possibilities of the design process.

Opportunities soon opened up to include projects throughout the United States, Hawaii and Mexico.

LaMar is a sought after writer and public speaker, frequently focusing on design and color trends in the industry. He and Lisman Studio have received numerous awards and recognition, including Leading Residential Designers in America, Top 50 Design Professionals in North America, and recognition from the design industry and his peers.
