Elizabeth Chamberlain’s life-long passion for interior design ignited when she decorated her teenage bedroom with bold stripes and a floral ‘focal wall.’ Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Elizabeth was born into the furniture business; her family owned and operated the prestigious Holland Furniture Company for 66 years until it was purchased by Baker Furniture.

A certified Black Hat Feng Shui Consultant, Elizabeth began her practice in the mid 1990’s, eventually developing an iconoclastic approach to the ancient art that is both Americanized for today’s tastes and styles while respecting its traditional roots. Over the years, Elizabeth has continued her education with a variety of teachers and masters including His Holiness Grandmaster Professor Thomas Lin-Yin, the man who introduced feng shui to America.

In 1999, Elizabeth became head designer for New York real estate developer Gary Barnett of Extell Management, one of Manhattan’s most successful firms. The scope of her work for Barnett included designing and coordinating gut-renovations in a Landmark upper Westside building, an Upper Eastside condominium conversion, as well as a new development project in Tribeca.  During her tenure, she designed over forty kitchens and ninety bathrooms.

Now living happily in Los Angeles, Elizabeth has developed a unique approach that incorporates feng shui, fresh style for today along with an eco-friendly focus on all of her design projects.  As a result, Elizabeth helps clients create beautiful earth-friendly homes that improve their lives and lighten their carbon footprint.

As she says, “Style is not about the amount you spend, it’s about the way you put it all together.”
