Erica Lea Design Studios


Luxurious interior design by Erica Lea Design Studios focuses on creating backdrops for life’s precious memories. Each home that her team designs represents a portrait of the people who reside there. For Erica, it’s an honor to get to know them, their lives, the books they read, their furry friends, all of it. She works magic, but insists that it's truly not: It takes talented professionals with experience, precision, processes, communication and meticulous organization to achieve these detailed, original designs. Erica cares about the details and believes that homebuilding is an art form.

Whether they are working on a house or out in the community, the team at Erica Lea Design Studios hopes to “enhance and elevate” the lives of the people who make 417-land home. Clients deserve to be able to see and touch their samples in person, to feel educated and understand the pros and cons of each selection. Erica Lea Design Studio's team works diligently to curate and perfect each project from renderings to the final installation. Erica is well known (and award winning) for not conforming, for bringing interest and beauty and inspiration to even the most unsuspecting parts of the home. Design work takes an incredible team, and Erica Lea Design Studios partners with the most talented local vendors and representatives to create your home's backdrop.
