About Lea

Lea Up Close:
While Lea holds many titles, her most important are those of Mother and Wife. She has been married to her husband Tony for 14 years and they have two beautiful children and two ‘fur-kids’ together. She enjoys spending time outside with her family and dogs, relaxing with friends around a fire and sharing a good meal, great conversation, and delicious wine. She believes life is about building relationships and enjoying experiences with those we love.

Lea Placek

Lea is a life-long artist and creative force. She formally entered the Interior Design field in 2006 when she was presented with an opportunity to work at a high-end custom furniture retailer. She spent 7 years there, learning everything about the furniture industry and residential room design, as well as winning numerous sales awards and, most importantly, designing spaces for hundreds of satisfied clients.

In 2013 she took a leap of faith and branched out on her own to establish Lea Placek Interiors. Lea has continued to evolve and expand her design services, and in early 2019 she added custom kitchen and bath design to her offerings of services.

Lea’s designs are based on timeless style and classic design elements while still incorporating fresh trends and updated color schemes into the spaces she designs. She is an expert in color and undertones, making her skill set invaluable when selecting paint colors, materials, finishes, and fabrics for the home.

Lea truly believes the power of a beautiful home can transform your daily life. A home should be functional and livable, but can also be polished and pulled together. She prides herself on her attention to detail, her love for working closely with people, and forming lasting relationships with her clients.
