ELIZABETH BARONDES, CO-FOUNDER, BARONDES MORRIS DESIGN
Elizabeth Barondes’ career in interior design began spontaneously when she was asked to create a home with the same look and feel as her own. Her business developed organically when requests for her instinctual design expertise came pouring in. In 2008 she co-founded Barondes Morris Design with designer and long-time friend Kelly Morris.
Barondes’ design style bases itself in a timeless aesthetic, with strong influences of contemporary architecture. She favors clean lines and lots of light in fresh, open spaces that are curated with personal items enabling each home to have a unique look.
She is at ease creating environments with varied characteristics and prefers not to be pinned to a particular style allowing her to achieve unexpected results.
Elizabeth was raised in La Jolla, California and graduated from UCLA with a degree in History. Prior to embarking in the world of interior design, Barondes was classically trained as an actor and enjoyed a successful career with dozens of roles in film, television and theater. She cites her extensive travels for refining her aesthetic and deep passion for art as constant inspiration.
