Lucy Live!
Passionate about great design in all its forms, Lucy loves sharing her talents with non-profits, community organizations, and even the Food Network!
Giving back has always been a priority for us at Lucy. We recognize that kindness and generosity sets the stage for success in others' lives. By giving a little time and lots of TLC to those in need, our society benefits as a whole through opportunities that help others grow, learn, and in turn, return the gift of giving.

In partnership with Design for a Difference (a community based, design-driven movement that makes over much needed spaces at local charities in the U.S. and Canada), we have had the incredible opportunity to work with other groups and businesses to bring change to those who need it the most. This year, we collaborate for the third time with DFAD to benefit Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ). The mission of NAZ: to permanently close the achievement gap and end generational poverty in North Minneapolis.

We invite you to follow along with us as we work with DFAD, Intersource, Inc., and our design partners, to create a newly designed environment for NAZ and its families. Updates and progress reports will be available through this page and our social media platforms.

Say Hello to Ryan!
At LID, we have been very fortunate to welcome some wonderful interns into our team. And this includes our current design intern, Ryan Welters. Ryan is a fellow College of Design Board member at the University of Minnesota and he’s a big design advocate and voice for DSAB, ASID, and IIDA. We are thrilled to have Ryan here with us during his last semester at the U of M's College of Design. Come on in to Studio 311 and say Hello!
Home of the Month
What a thrill to see our Hand-Crafted Modern home in the April 7th edition of the Star Tribune. We love this project because it was a true collaboration with our design partners, Bryan Anderson of Sala Architects, Merdan Custom Builders, and most importantly the homeowners, who were completely hands-on throughout the entire process. Take a peek at the linked article, as well as the project gallery, to see how we were able to integrate reused and organic materials, including larch wood, soapstone, and original Douglas fir into the home design.

2018 ASID Awards
The new year is off to a fabulous start. And as we look ahead to the fun and exciting opportunities coming our way, we reflect back on how wonderful the past year was for Lucy Interior Design. We ended 2018 with another ASID award: Judges Merit for Universal Design of a Commercial project. We couldn't be more honored and proud.

You Belong Here was a project that took us to a young city church that was outgrowing its current space. The overall goal: move a growing congregation from a 4,000 sq ft gym to an existing 42,000 sq ft church. On their list of needs: a Welcome Hall, Music/Performance Hall, Service Hall, Education Corridor, and Pastor's Office. The timeline was rigorous. We had just six weeks to complete the job. And holy moly, we did it! The space went from drab and antiquated to vibrant and fresh. We removed the old church stigma and created a modern vibe that is now reflective of its members. And we brought a bright, happy color palette with clear and bold messaging to an open space plan that includes a greeting desk, coffee/beverage station, and gathering space.

Today this church represents those who fill its space. One whose motto is: You Belong Here.

Design for a Difference
Lucy is honored to be a national ambassador for Design for a Difference. Founded by The International Design Guild, this community-driven designer movement brings interior designers together with socially conscious showrooms and other businesses to makeover needed spaces at local charities.
Design. Dish. Donate.
As an Ambassador for Design for a Difference, Lucy completed a full makeover of the FOUND IT! Estate Store for Bridging, a local non-profit that provides furniture and household goods to families and individuals transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. She invited a team of local interior designers to participate in the makeover by creating room vignettes and re-merchandising the entire store. A makeover reveal party and celebration further benefitted Bridging through additional fundraising.

American Craft Council
After discovering the work of artist Fred Kaemmer, Lucy was inspired to celebrate the mysterious beauty of ice for the American Craft Council's annual show. Using a trio of Fred's incredible glass pieces, metallic wallcovering, elegant, bare trees, and modular furniture, Lucy created Frozen Cove, an invitation to pause and appreciate the exquisite stillness of a crisp winter day.
