Lisa Vandenburgh grew up in Connecticut where her love of art and antiques developed while on Saturday adventures with her mother. Together they explored antique shops along the rural back roads of northwestern Connecticut, the dusty flea markets of Brimfield, Massachusetts as well as the beautiful galleries and museums that abound close by in New York City.

Ms. Vandenburgh received an interior design degree from the University of Georgia and moved to Boston to pursue her design career in 1978. She joined the well-known firm of William Hodgins, Inc. where she was a designer for five years.

Eager to form a firm of her own, Ms. Vandenburgh saved $20,000 with which she rented office space and two desks in Boston's Back Bay, hired a bookkeeper, designed her letterhead and waited for the phone to ring. Over one hundred and fifty homes and 25 years later, Ms. Vandenburgh currently employs a staff of eight and her work has been featured in a wide variety of publications.

The historic Flour Mill building along the banks of the Potomac in Georgetown is the current home of Lisa Vandenburgh Ltd., a wonderful space that inspires the creativity of the LVL team to design beautiful homes and vacation retreats for their clients in D.C. and throughout the country.

Ms. Vandenburgh lives in Washington, D.C. with her son, Will.
