EMBELLISH HOME

Story by Kayla Fugate • Photography by Brian Packard

Lisa Marshall is the owner of Embellish Home. Lisa was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and moved to Bowling Green about seventeen years ago. She now calls Bowling Green home. She says she has always had an eye for interior design and dreamed of owning her own home decor store, and now she does.

Lisa has a BFA in Design Communications from Texas Tech University. Lisa says that as a child, her dream job was to be an architect. “That is, until I took my first drafting class in college. I quickly changed my major to graphic art.” She started her career late in life as she devoted several years raising her 3 children, and wouldn’t change that for anything. After losing her husband to a very rare cancer 3 years ago, it was time to make a fresh start and pursue something she loves.

For women just starting out in business, Lisa suggests finding a mentor and learning as much as possible from that person. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Chances are your first job out of school will not dictate your career path. Be open minded and follow your dreams,” she says. Lisa says she tends to pour herself into one thing and tries to do it well. “I know my limitations,” she says. “God and family always take priority.”
