With hands permanently covered in plaster and paint, Caroline Lizarraga is happiest working in Old World ways. She trained for her craft in the cobblestoned streets of Florence, Italy, and continue to bring that antiquated sensibility to all of her projects today. You’ll find her on every job site, working each layer of color and detailing solely by hand.
She’s passionate not only about creating amazing interior environments but also in helping her clients find and express their own distinctive style. No two jobs are ever alike. Whether it’s a boutique hotel in Napa Valley, an expansive winery estate, or a private residence, her approach is always the same: create a space that is utterly authentic and magically artful.

She graduated with a BS in Accounting, however, her interest in faux finishing was born over years and years of turning her many houses into ‘homes’.
