Elizabeth (“Liz”) Holmes is an interior designer, entrepreneur, law school graduate. She’s a problem-solver, sometime people-pleaser who believes if you spend 8 of 24 hours in a day sleeping, you’re doing something wrong. Street art, fashion, and architecture serve as a source of inspiration, edge, and flair that distinguishes her personal style and work.
While attending law school, Liz also worked as a communications director for a New York City Council member. She was a paralegal, lobbyist, and tenant liaison for a residential real estate firm. But designing the apartments and homes of friends and colleagues is where she found her voice. She later earned a certificate in Interior Design from the NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies.
Liz brings a sharp, colorful, and edgy point-of-view to each of her designs, a savvy mind that’s attuned to her clients’ vision, and a resourceful drive to pull it all together.
In 2015 Elizabeth Holmes was featured on NBC's George to the Rescue and was named one of Newsday's All-Star Designers.
What Does Black History Month Mean To You This Year?
Black History Month has always been an opportunity to recognize and take pride in those African-Americans who have made significant contributions to our society. But for me, this year Black History Month is about responsibility. As a mother to a 5-year-old who is inquisitive and observant, I have a responsibility and an obligation to share with him a history that is as diverse as he is, and a history that is steeped in turbulent struggle and tremendous success. I also see this as a time to reflect on what I am doing personally, professionally, collectively, and as a part of a community to shape a lasting legacy for future generations.
What Is On Trend For You?
Right now bold, exuberant and brightly colored textiles, textured lighting, and an unexpected mix of varying patterns on furnishings are on trend for me. Always on trend are interiors that are layered, luxe and look lived-in, i.e., as if its user acquired and collected personal objects, art, furniture, and statement-making pieces over a lifetime.
