A Closer Look:
Lisa has been designing beautiful spaces since 1980… 5 years before Hadley was even born. It’s unsurprising, then, that the world of interiors is in Hadley’s DNA.
When describing their design approach, Lisa and Hadley say, “We love to mix old and new to create chic yet comfortable spaces for our clients. We love to gain inspiration through travels abroad and believe that our innate passion for design is in our blood.”
Their spaces ooze with the three words they use to self-describe their aesthetic: transitional, warm and timeless. It’s hard to scroll through Instagram without wanting to climb through the screen and cozy up in their clients’ rooms, which typically feature neutrals and soothing shades of blue.
Lisa and Hadley agree that they love soaking up issues of Elle Décor and feel strongly about the role of investing in inspirational, original art within a space. They say, “Art is often our jumping off point for the room’s color palette. It is a key element because that is often what first catches your eye.” For Hadley, her own favorite art pieces include portraits of her two children, Britt and Georgia Grace, and the Anne Neilson angels that live in her nursery. When referring to client work, Hadley notes a recent living room she and her mom designed in Atlanta featuring a Marcy Gregg original.
The Lisa Britt Design team also shared with us some personal favorites. They list dens and kitchens as favorite rooms to design because “they are the heartbeat of the home”; the beach as a favorite getaway; their recent trip to Greece as a family favorite; a love for implementing mid-century elements within a space; and local Charlotte dinner spot Kid Cashew as a must-visit while in the city.
