I will transform your garden or terrace into an outdoor living space with warm, inviting charm, functionality and style. I will transform your interior to match. They belong together. My philosopy is that my job is to help you get to where you want to go in design, to guide you and help make decisions. I value what you do have and try to revamp as much as possible, especially if it tells a story about your life or has meaning. Taking the old and making it new is the new design.

Lisa Aiken never dreamed of turning her flair for interior and exterior decor into a business, but it was the constant reaction to the creation of her own backyard garden that prompted her to finally leave her 9 to 5 career behind.
"Visitors to my home always asked, 'Who did your home? Who did your backyard?' When I answered, 'I did,' I'd be met with near disbelief," laughs Aiken. "They'd say, 'You really should do this for a living!'"
After many years of the corporate grind, I'd had enough and decided to open a store. Within a few months I did and called it Terra Firma Home & Terrace. I had no idea how to run a store but it was meant to be, within a very short period of time, I had a beautiful store in trendy Bloor West Village in Toronto filled with indoor, outdoor finds, fountains running, antiques and more. The terrace design and garden design came pouring in as people wanted me to make their spaces look like mine. After 5 years I gave up the retail side of things and focused on my design company. It's been fabulous and I've been honoured to work with amazing clients. Each project is as exciting as the last. It's been 13 years since then and I'm not looking back, just looking forward to working with you on your project.
