I sometimes find pictures that I can't immediately find a source for. In fact, it happens a lot. But when I do, as I have today, I like to put them on my Tuesday Inspiring Spaces posts.

I loved the white sofa, the seagrass rug, the soft blue silk drapes, and the Swedish chair in the corner in front of the window. I craved more photos from this room, even dug through the archives of DMagazine where I found that the house was actually the Dallas home of the designer and her husband.

But she's not alone in her business, in fact, she's got a wonderful partner, and together they make a fabulous team! Lisa co-owns the firm with Jan Jones, with whom she worked when they were both stylists at Neiman Marcus. Together, they've been in creative industry for over 25 years as make-up, fashion, and interior stylists. The eclectic approach of Martensen Jones is classic, contemporary, global, and comfortable which often results in pairing a pedigreed antique with an economical piece. The final product can result in rooms that are timeless, have style and are fresh and personal.
