Spring fashion trend? Silky flowy tops with pearls and bright colored skinny jeans.

Weekend roadtrip destination? ALWAYS New Orleans. It's in our backyard and is the best city to antique and enjoy the best of Louisiana cuisine.

Piece of furniture on the showroom floor right now? I LOVE our black Tritter Feefer desk and Mr. Brown cabinet that we just put on the floor. Gorgeous! These you must come see with your own eyes!

Dessert?  The blueberry cobbler at Local 463!

Thing you did in LA when you went with Brian on trips for The Voice?  I really had little time to tour the city. They wanted us to hang out at the hotel which was "ground zero" for all of the artists and their families just in case you were called to go to the Sony lot for taping. One day my husband and I did go into Beverly Hills to eat brunch at my fav deli - Nate and Al's. And I was sitting across from Zac Galifianakis!

Project you're working on?  I have a fabulous project in Shreveport, LA. It's a big update for my client. She hasn't bought any new furnishings for her house in 15 years! We are totally changing the vibe of her current look. She has purchased some great art, a big James Beamon with bright yellows and a large Andrew Bucci with cobalt blue, black and bright yellow so I am using that as my jumping off point. We just made our presentation to her and she loved everything! We'll post some before and after pics so everyone can see her transformation!

Must have makeup item?  At my age, I'd have to say my Benefit concealer and sleep! Oh... and I can't forget my Nars lipstick in Heat Wave.

Thanks for sharing with us, Lisa! Until the next Lisa's LOVES... :)

Wall Color? Pratt and Lambert Chanteuse 25-27 It's a blue-gray hue. It's beautiful with metallics and white and any saturated accent color.

Modern printed fabric? The new collection from No.9 Thompson by Jim Thompson has a print on an ivory texture named Bamboozle. It's a large scale jagged stripe that comes in several color combo's. I want to use it on a sofa or large window covering. LOVE IT!!

TV Show? I never miss Modern Family for a good laugh, (Isn't Cam the greatest!)  and The Housewives of Atlanta is my guilty pleasure! sssshhh...don't tell anyone!

Fall Fashion Trend? Black suede booties. I can't live without them!

Favorite piece in the SummerHouse showroom right now? Artesia Beatrice Cabinet in White Wash. It's modern and earthy at the same time and it's all about the details on this one! I'd put it in a living space flanked by tall white slipcovered covered chairs. Instant gorgeous!!
