Meet Lisa

Lisa Sachleben is a Certified Interior Redesigner and Home Stager. She was trained and mentored by Sandy Dixon, a renowned redesigner from Evergreen, Colorado. Lisa developed her natural gifts as an artist and designer through art studies at Ohio State University.

Ever since she was a little girl, Lisa had a passion for making spaces special. Growing up in a large family, and then raising one of her own, she learned to be resourceful and find simple cost-effective design solutions by using what was available in creative ways.

She loves the concept of redesign because most people have enough things, they just need help pulling it all together and using it to the best advantage. One of her greatest joys is hearing people say, “Wow! I never imagined it could look this good." She finds real satisfaction in achieving this without spending a lot of money!

Meet Val

Valerie Shoemaker has been actively involved in the interior design field for many years. Earning a degree in Interior Design in 1994, her focus has been on residential design. She participated in the Denver Symphony Guild's Showhomes in 1994, 1996 and 1998. Her work has been published in Colorado Homes and Lifestyles magazine. Always an advocate for “use what you have first” decorating, interior redesign and staging was a natural step for her.

A talented artist, Val has distinguished herself not only as an interior designer but as a painter with an incredible flair for color and design. Her portfolio includes many beautiful murals, decorative borders and faux finishes.

Valerie is a great asset to Design Refined because of her uncanny ability to find creative and affordable solutions to any design challenge.
