About

My name is Elizabeth Barnes, principal designer of Leeza Designs in Oakland, CA.  Welcome to my blog where I blog about my job and the things that keep my world moving.

I fall in love with a new style almost every time I meet a new client.  But, I wanted my blog to be a bit more about me than about my clients.   People are always asking me, “but, what is your style…” and I have never felt that my client’s homes were about me.  But, this blog… it will be about me!

So, I invite you along through the days of spider webs during garage clean-outs to shopping for rugs at the San Francisco Design Center to the fights that clients have with their loved ones over skylights and the fun I have hanging out in the garages of refinishers and furniture makers.  And, if I happen to attend an ASID meeting and meet someone famous or learn of a new fabric line being introduced at Donghia, I’ll be sure to share.

I have lots of ideas!  I plan on sharing the things that I find most beautiful with you whether it is a house with fabulous curb appeal, a sweet little figurine or an amazing kitchen.  I plan on blogging on my favorite styles that I have yet to incorporate into someones home… like bohemian chic.  And, I’ll even answer your design question, if the answer can be easily translated online.  And, if it’s more complicated, well then we better schedule a meet ‘n greet, instead.  And, if I find a great retail deal, you’ll find it here.

So, welcome to My Jewel Box where you’ll find my musings…
