Residential interior design is truly the art of problem-solving. By curating interiors that represent clients' personalities, passions, and desires, they solve functionality obstacles and make day-to-day living more practical. And, they build sanctuaries. Yes, there is a fair amount of creativity and artistic approach to interior design; however, the heart and soul of a successful interior designer is much more than that. In this three-day seminar, students dove deep and explored what it really means to be an interior designer, including groupbased design charrettes. The final day was a half-day field trip at a client job site plus a tour of the San Francisco Design Center.


Session Led By: Lizette marie Bruckstein

Lizette Marie Bruckstein burst onto the San Francisco interior design scene less than fifteen years ago. Forgoing the traditional route of apprenticing in a prestigious design firm, Lizette founded her high-end residential design firm, Lizette Marie Interior Design, right out of design school. In the years since, Lizette has evolved into a well-respected designer with a loyal list of clients that span from San Francisco to the greater bay area.

Lizette’s philosophy is simple — to create custom spaces for her clients that are a reflection of the client’s best self. From provocative to playful, colorful to serenely neutral, Lizette’s designs are expertly crafted as she plays up the use of scale, texture, and pattern. A big proponent of custom design, incorporating it into floor coverings and case goods, Lizette strives to give each space she creates its own signature focal point. Her use of color and geometrics in large-scale projects has also garnered attention from local and national magazines, such as the San Francisco Chronicle’s Stylemakers, Silicon Valley Magazine, and Gentry Magazine.
