Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Lisa Adams left for the mainland at age 17 where she earned her BA in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley and then an MBA from Malibu's Pepperdine University. Though a science major, Lisa knew she possessed an unusual blend of left and right-brain traits. As a dedicated follower of fashion, style and décor, she decided that design, with its combination of creative inspiration and disciplined details would be an ideal fit for her personal and professional passions.
Observing the public's newfound obsession with functional spaces such as kitchens and baths, she began to notice that there was yet one more under-utilized and misunderstood room to be explored - the closet. Coat closets, master wardrobes, laundry rooms, kids closets - they were all functionally and aesthetically in the dark ages. Lisa decided it was time to reinvent the closet into spaces that were highly functional, uber-organized and utterly beautiful.
LA Closet Design launched in 2007 with the intention of revolutionizing the concept of closets. Since then, a roster of celebrities, designers, architects and homeowners of all stripes have engaged Lisa's services to create customized, often high tech and environmentally friendly wardrobe spaces that add real value to the home, improve a homeowners living experience and add style and flair to what is one of the most important spaces in a house.
My mission is to create wardrobe and storage spaces that are balanced functionally and aesthetically. As a designer, I see the potential in this under-utilized, and often out of control space to add value to your home and to calm the chaos of everyday life.
The closet is where we most often spend the first and last moments of a day and unfortunately at those times many of us deal with universal closet issues: cluttered, overstuffed and unorganized spaces. Instead, I look at both your room - and your life - and then I create a space of peace, beauty and even glamour.
Each LA Closet Design project is customized to reflect the needs and style of the individual client. Whether masculine, sophisticated and streamlined or feminine and high fashion, the closet should be a high functioning, natural extension of the home and an actual living space.
