Lisa Hilderbrand: Whether in an antique farmhouse, a sprawling new construction or high-rise condo, Lisa Hilderbrand has a natural instinct for balance, scale and proportion. Her judgment and advice are sound and grounded in a value approach – where to hold back, where it’s worth it to push a client’s comfort zone, when spending money is really worth it, when to keep looking. Her depth of knowledge, frank attitude and hands-on work ethic combined with her impeccable taste, make her a rare find. Lisa designs and buys with great confidence because she’s got the background to back it up. Seven years at Christie’s afforded her the opportunity to learn from the best and make contacts around the world. She is versatile and can easily shift gears from mid-century Danish to 18th century English. Her projects are smart and well rounded, sophisticated but not complicated. Hilderbrand's interiors are inviting and gracious and don’t look like the decorator left five minutes (or five years) ago.
