Welcome to Maison Mass!
Hi – so glad you stopped by! We’re Kristen and Lisa and like you love all things home. Maison Mass is a place where we chat about home design and decor in the great state of Massachusetts. Have a look around and let us know what you think!
I’ve had the good fortune to work locally in the residential design industry as a marketer and strategist for nearly 15 years. I’ve been a homeowner in Massachusetts even longer and have lived through a few DIY home improvement (deck, shed) and professional remodeling (powder room, kitchen, basement) projects. Scouring the internet prepping for these undertakings, I found lots of great stuff on the large, national home improvement sites, but quickly became frustrated that not much of it was local or even relevant design-wise to the Northeast.
Through my collective work and personal experience, I’ve met some terrific folks that help create beautiful homes right in our own back yard and thought it would be great to create one source for all of these resources. The idea has been kicking around my brain for almost two years and I am excited to finally give it life.
When I’m not thinking about all things home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three boys.
I’m Lisa, wife, mom to three boys, and queen of our jungle.
Over the last 20 years, I’ve lived in a city loft, a new construction home and now our 150+ year old farmhouse; always in Massachusetts. When we were newly married, with all the time in the world and no distractions, we lived in a new home -requiring nothing of us. So, we imagined new and unnecessary projects to keep us busy. Fast forward ten years: add 3 kids, subtract a lot of time and expendable income and here we are, biting off more than is advisable, or sane. The upkeep and renovation project possibilities are endless and sometimes daunting. Writing has always helped give me perspective. I hope in sharing, it may do the same for you.
Thanks for reading!
