For over 30 years Lisa has worked in the field of interior design and fine art. In 1996 Lisa founded Eclectic Design, an interior design studio in Scottsdale, Arizona. Lisa has worked with homeowners, builders, and architects on new construction, remodel and commercial interior design and architecture projects. In 2005 Eclectic Design became Lisa Gildar Interior Spaces.
Born in the Midwest Lisa draws inspiration from her connection to nature and the earth. Moving to Scottsdale in 1973, Lisa has a unique perspective on living in the Sonoran Desert and the evolving lifestyle and architecture of the Southwest. Projects in other areas of the country have unique regional elements that are factored into her design process considerations. Outdoor living spaces play an important role in her residential design work. Lisa’s love and passion for gardening and the outdoors drives her innate connection to organic forms and materials.
Function drives her design while she balances the aesthetic elements of color, texture, and scale. Choices in materials and finishes for each project are a conscious balance of aesthetics and sustainable considerations and the impact these design choices have on the environment we work and live in. Selection and placement of artwork also play a key role in defining the spaces Lisa creates, and is critical to the success of her design projects.
When she is not immersed in design projects Lisa can be found in one of her various gardens or in the ceramic studio.
