No two projects are alike, and New Traditional interior designer, Lisa Gielincki, prefers it that way. She and her team collaborate on each project to bring multiple perspectives into balance and ensure a thoughtful result. For each project, it’s critical that she understands the client’s vision thoroughly. Gielincki will then draw upon her aesthetic ability, project management experience, and strong relationships with builders, craftspeople, artisans, and other talented partners to execute her vision seamlessly. Every detail that matters to her clients matters even more to Lisa Gielincki and her team. As she has learned throughout her career, good design often looks effortless, but behind the scenes, a great deal of effort is poured into every detail.
Where do you take risks in your work?
“Early in my career I wanted to be sure that all things matched perfectly. With time and experience I now love to mix and match furnishings and accessories to give my designs a collected and lived in feeling. Color and balance are always part of my design process. By adding these to some stand out features in clients’ environments we take risks. Areas such as a wallpapered ceilings or driftwood custom bar become the standout parts of the design. Clients’ spaces need to reflect the person that inhabits them. They need to reduce stress and Make Living Beautiful.”When should a home-design enthusiast enlist the help of a design pro?
“Early in the design process. A good Designer can help produce creative layouts, solutions and ideas that have not occurred to homeowners. Designers also have great relationships with subcontractors and contractors. Avoiding costly mistakes and wrong selections are just some of the benefits of working with a design professional.”Why make custom goods instead of purchasing "off-the-rack" from retailers?
“Right now, with the supply chain problems in the furnishings industry I believe custom goods are the best idea! You can receive items in a timely manner and many times reduce shipping costs. The quality is far superior to box store mass produced products. I also love the fact that when something is made custom for the client it is one of a kind and perfect for the designed space.”What is New Traditional Design?
New Traditional interior design is the antithesis of stark and understated interiors, marked by bright patterns and colors, antique textures and materials, and unexpected needlepoint and wicker accents. You’ll find homeware considered by mainstream culture to be outdated, but for new traditional interior designers, they’re anything but.
Interior designers, like Lisa Gielincki, take part in this generational rebellion against mainstream mid-century, modern design, adding in special touches to the living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms she designs. Inspired by this old-school aesthetic, she creates spaces that exude comfort and warmth by mixing timeless and classic accents with traditional colors like blues, whites, and soft greens.

Are you looking for additional ways to set your custom pillows apart from the standard big-box offerings? Try butterfly corners! They're one of our favorite details and happen to fit so well with the above-mentioned style trend.
Make sure to clarify with your workroom first because there are several interpretations of this detail. These can sometimes be referred to as Turkish corners or open corners or you can have a butterfly flange on a butterfly corner (double the butterfly fun)! But yes, communication is key here to get exactly what you want.
