Lisa Hogan of Lisa's Creative DesignsMy name is Lisa Hogan. I am a wife, mom, interior decorator and self taught artist/crafter. I have been creative my entire life. Whether I am sewing new curtains for my bedroom, revamping an old chair or making a gift for someone special, I am happiest when my hands are busy doing something creative.

I have never let the amount of money in my pocket, or lack thereof hinder my love for design. I am a firm believer that everyone can have a beautiful home, even on a tiny budget. Sometimes you just have to get creative and rework the things you already have. It’s amazing what a little paint and elbow grease can do.

My own home is filled with things that speak to me and just make me “feel” good. It’s very personal and comfortable. Decorating after all, is not just about how a space looks. A home should appeal to all our senses, both mentally and physically. It’s all about how it makes us feel when we walk in the door.”

When not working on a design project, I can be found hunting and pecking through tag sales and flea markets in search of vintage wares and décor items that I can incorporate into my work or my own home. I am a very nostalgic person, an old soul. I tend to gravitate toward things that remind me of the past.

As a decorator and avid crafter I’ve dabbled in everything from decorative painting, sewing, and even furniture making. I have decorated most of my home with vintage collectibles, decor I created myself and redesigned flea market finds. I have never let the amount of money in my pocket stop me from doing what I love….create and decorate. I am a firm believer that with a little creativity, anyone can have a beautiful home, on any budget.

In 2006 I turned my passion into a business with the opening of a small boutique and design studio. It has since evolved into a successful website, blog and Etsy shop. In 2010 I decided to expand my business and went back to school to become a professional Interior Decorator and Home Stager. I feel very blessed to be able to be doing something I love so much.

I am so proud to have had some of my work featured on many online blogs & design websites such as Houzz.com, About.com on HGTV and in print publications including Treasures Magazine, Smart Retailer and the book Hot Cottage Collectibles for Vintage Style Homes by C. Dianne Zweig. I was also a regular contributor to Smart Retailer Magazine.
