Debra Lipset – August Designer Spotlight

Debra_Lipset_140x175Debra Lipset, a celebrated interior designer from Westport, has been designing homes in the Fairfield County area for over a decade. She has a passion for design and loves to highlight her client’s style and create a layer of warmth within their homes. She is environmentally sensitive and enjoys incorporating eco friendly solution’s as well as the principals of Feng Shui to each project.

Debra has a natural ability with colors, tones, and textures, as well as excellent space orientation to maximize the flow and energy of the homes and rooms she designs. She prides herself in getting the right look, ambiance, feel, and textures of the homes she works on. She connects with her clients to understand their needs in detail, and then deliver their vision for their home, on time and on budget.

The spaces Debra designs evolve as she learns more about her clients needs. She leverages her full palette of skills to meet the esthetics and functionality of the spaces that she has been invited in to design.

This living room lacked privacy, and warmth and did not reflect the homeowner’s heritage and style.

This space was created for casual chic living where the family could entertain friends, and family could hang out. Inspired by the hues of summer time at the beach, the color of sand and water were incorporated into the room to create a relaxing environment.

Details were given to a game table in the corner with custom upholstery and coordinating pillows on the sofa to tie the room together.  Black marble tables on chrome bases and mercury lamps added a pop of chic to the space and two espresso sofa tables with creative bases bring in an elm of unexpected beauty. The Barcelona brown leather chair adds to the chic feel. Fun artwork and pieces collected over time round out this space.

By adding custom window treatments, a larger area rug, a new coffee table, leather chairs and a couple of poufs
a new hang out area with a conversation pit was born.
We addressed lighting as well as dressing the walls with meaningful photos and a batiked artwork that had been a wedding gift.
