Things I believe ...

An eclectic designer, in love with 'color, movement'
The top Los Angeles interior designer Lyndall Hobbs says every job has the same requirements:
"Endless energy. A vision. And attention to detail."
Not to mention exceptional talent and built-in radar for a brilliant, stunning piece of furniture or art -- "That can be pretty helpful too," she says with a grin.
The Los Angeles Times hailed her "eclectic tastes" and "artful" approach to home design and renovation.
"I love color and movement, and I can't abide by the rules of design," Lyndall says. "I love to mix objects and eras."

The native of Australia knows the turf in L.A., having worked as a feature film director before turning to her talents to L.A. interior design and home renovation.
Lyndall finds that the skills she developed as a director help her navigate the hundreds of choices and decisions that make up any ambitious design project.
"Unless you've spent many, many years doing this kind of work yourself, it makes total sense to hire someone -- a designer -- to help you make the best, most creative yet cost-effective decisions," she says.
While Lyndall has top-to-bottom experience with major house renovations -- she even counts contracting among her skills -- the designer is open to all projects and budgets.
"The size of the job doesn't matter to me," she says. "The quality and care will always be there."
