ARLENE LORD owner, principal designer

Arlene Lord has been professionally beautifying spaces for more than a decade. Her artistic vision dates back to her childhood. She grew up in a home that embraced art and music while encouraging a curiosity to create “magic out of mud.”

To each project, Arlene brings a desire to celebrate living in concert with contrast. She encourages clients to take risks, holding on to what is precious, while introducing textures, color, and order. What emerges are spaces that breathe life. True sanctuaries that stand as a representation of each client’s unique and timeless personality.
