Do you have a friend who has such an incredible innate sense of style that she is always ahead of the curve even when she’s completely out of the loop? For my that friend would be Lisa Kuperman, my hair stylist and good friend.
I mentioned the design slump I was feeling in last Saturdays post about the amazing artist from Elle Decoration – well it was Lisa’s salon (and her magazine) that helped jump-kick me out of it. Lisa reminds me that one doesn’t have to be a Rothschild to be able to create wonderful welcoming interior design. The sofas and chairs shown in these pictures were bought as a set for 1,000 NIS (that’s about 275 USD). Admittedly, they would look rather awful in most homes here – but for a shop they are absolutely perfect.
The door is another serendipitous arrival. Lisa and Ari (her husband) had decided to strip the metal door back to it’s glory. They got most of the stripping done and decided that they actually preferred it semi-stripped.
People have come in and asked if they painted it like that – and Lisa just answers, “of course we did.”
Lisa started planning the space ages before even finding it. She bought this amazing wallpaper on eBay. My pictures don’t do it justice.
The chinoiserie cabinet is Lisa’s from home. It blends perfectly with the rest of the space.
Lisa also makes sculpture and jewelry (her husband does metal work, sculpture, painting and jewelry as well). The man above was made by Lisa.
She also happens to do the best color in Israel 🙂

I think some lacy doilies hanging on the back of the brown armchairs would help liven them up considerably!
It’s looking great Lisa! Can’t wait for my next haircut so I can see it in its full glory.
