Name: Lisa Zagumny and Clint Hardison Location: Cookeville, Tennessee Size: 1500 square feet Years lived in: 7 — owned Clint and Lisa's home appears similar to other homes on their quiet street until you walk in the front door and are greeted with a distinct, colorful palette. They have definitely put their signature on what would otherwise be a very common, and (dare I say?) boring standard house plan.
Drawn to color, texture, and shape, the couple have created a space that is defined, outspoken, and uniquely theirs. They balance the bold wall colors with simple art, organized storage spaces, and a clutter-free existence. Clint and Lisa—and their four cats—exist in a lively space that encompasses their distinct personalities. Apartment Therapy Survey: Our Style: Kitsch — mid century and crayola-inspired whimsy with a hint of Scandinavia. Inspiration: Color, style, texture… anything that reminds me (Lisa) of my grandma's house. Favorite Element: The layering of colors as you look through the rooms. The colors play off each other adding a sense of depth to a relatively small space. The abstract pattern on the windows from kitty nose prints is our favorite accidental design element. Biggest Challenge: Builder grade materials. If we replaced everything builder grade, we'd outprice the value of the house, so we had to pick and choose. What Friends Say: "Love the color" and "What's the floor (kitchen) made of?" Proudest DIY: The paint job in the study shows our concern for detail. The turquoise Eames chairs in the living room were definitely our best vintage find. Biggest Indulgence: Flooring. Both the tile and hardwood are favorites. Low maintenance with a really clean look. Best Advice: Do it for you & choose objects that make you smile. Take your time and instill your energy/vibe/mojo in your home. Dream Sources: Ebay and vintage stores. Travel is a must—inventory at antique stores reflects regional tastes and styles.
