Newman Paratore is best known for eclectic
and inviting designs, reflecting her
fashion and art background. Upon completion
of each project, Lisa believes the space
should be a reflection of her client's
personal style, as well as a comfortable
and functional space that is a pleasure
for the homeowner.
Her extensive time abroad
and fine art training give her a unique
perspective on aesthetic plans. Over
the past 15 years, she has consulted
on projects from New York to the Outer
Banks to London. Lisa teaches classes
on interior decoration and has been
a guest lecturer on such subjects
as Balance in Design, Eclectic Interiors,
and Establishing a Successful Interior
Decoration Business. She has been
invited to participate in seven designer
show houses, including most recently
one for "This Old House."
Lisa's work has been
published several times in such well
known publications as Better Homes & Gardens.
Four of her showhouse projects are
featured in the recently released
Show Houses - Tour 250 Designer Rooms."
A cum laude graduate of Connecticut
College, Lisa lives on the shoreline
of Rhode Island with her husband,
