A Beach House with Southern Charm

Mother-Daughter Duo Dish Up Delightful Designs

Creatively transforming livable spaces is a whole process, a detailed approach that Lisa and Leah Selvig adamantly relish.

As interior designers and owners of Invision Home Staging and Design, this mother-daughter team enjoys the planning, hunting, organizing and placement of staging new or remodeled homes.

Lisa and Leah have been frequently asked to lend their design prowess to Floridian beach homes, lake houses and vacation rental properties. They’ve been incorporating their own version of coastal living styles, often blending natural and organic looks with textures and unusual color combinations, such as navy, oatmeal and mustard. They place rattan with jute and linens.

“We often start with determining the best painting and lighting options because those are two areas where you get the most benefits from the money invested,” says Lisa.

“We like to achieve authentic, sophisticated looks while still evoking comfy, warm feelings,” says Leah.

To that end, Leah and Lisa say they’re including reflective surfaces and certain metals in their coastal style of design while mixing it up with gems found at various home decor retailers.

An inspiring example of their beach home staging recently was done in a home within the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, a house owned by a Nashville resident. Working with a four-bedroom bayfront cottage, Leah and Lisa created an inviting, but worry-free, look for the rental property.

Lisa and Leah say they work hard at listening to each client’s objectives because they want them to love their homes as their retreats and sanctuaries.

This perfect beach getaway is located right inside the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort in Miramar Beach, FL and available to rent through VRBO. Please visit:
