Style at Home: Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost / Photography by Trent & Dara Bailey

Here at Glitter Guide, we’re long-time fans of Lulu Frost jewelry. Designer and founder Lisa Salzer’s vintage sensibility and modern lens (and of course, her frequent use of sparkle!) fit perfectly with our aesthetic. Given Lisa’s stylish taste and her ability to create beautiful statement pieces out of one-of-a-kind vintage finds, we were excited to get a peek inside her gorgeous home. Her fresh take on classic, feminine style is exactly what we would expect from the founder of Lulu Frost: warm, unique, and completely enviable!

  • We’re huge fans of the beautiful statement pieces you create. How did you start designing  jewelry?
    During my senior year at Dartmouth I started to put together pieces from great vintage finds at local flea markets. My college friends started buying my work, and the jewelry designer in me was born.

  • “My navy blue wall is one of my favorite aspects of the living room. It perfectly frames my great piece of art. The lights on either side of the couch are truly beautiful and are from Schoolhouse Electric. The coffee table was created for me by my talented friend Connor Meehan from an antique California redwood placed atop a steel base. The ficus is a very important part of the room that brings in color and life.”

    When did you start Lulu Frost? What do you think sets Lulu Frost apart from other jewelry designers?
    Lulu Frost began in 2004. We are different than other jewelry designers because we have consistent innovation in our designs, and I love to look to the past, but view it through a modern lens.

  • Can you describe your personal style?
    Ladylike and eclectic.

  • “This is my industrial black steel bookcase next to an amazing reupholstered 1950’s chair done by my friend Nina Freudenberger of Haus Interior. Atop the bookcase is a great Native American blanket I found for $5 at a flea market.”

    How would you describe your interior decorating style?
    I like to keep it simple with clean industrial lines, but with warm touches in patterns, throw pillows, and cozy blankets.

  • You studied art in school, and you create wearable art with your jewelry. You must have some fantastic art in your home, right?
    I’ve been trying to collect wonderful things over the past 10 years. It doesn’t matter if it is by a known artist, it just has to speak to me. One of my favorite pieces is the “CENSORSHIP IS UNAMERICAN” painting that anchors my living room. It was a free street find that my boyfriend and I discovered in the West Village.

  • Which room is your favorite?
    My living room, it’s where we do everything from relaxing, to dining, to even sleeping sometimes on the floor by the fireplace.

  • “The framed piece is one of my favorites, I got it in Montana when I was working on a cattle ranch. It is made up of several different portraits of Native Americans and it means so much to me. The boxes are part of my collection of interesting old tins and the one on top is a hand made ceramic piece from my friend and sculptor Sandy Burton.”

  • “Here are some Lulu Frost goodies and a Marni for H+M skirt. There is also a great Picasso poster that adds wonderful color!”

    How do you stay inspired?
    I stay inspired by traveling and my inspiration also comes form the vintage finds that my mother scores for us from our great dealers.

  • What’s your favorite item in your home?
    My jewelry “situation.”

  • “This is my trusty fireplace blackened from tons of use! On the left is a panel from the Con Edison building circa 1930.”

    Were there any challenging parts to decorating your home? How long did it take you to get the exact look you wanted?
    Yes definitely! Even though I am a designer and very into aesthetics, it was very challenging for me to figure out the look for my home. I spent a lot of time on great blogs such as Apartment Therapy honing in on what appealed to me the most.

  • What’s your favorite thing about your home?
    The fireplace is key! There is nothing like entertaining around a real crackling fire in the middle of winter.

  • “These are custom made matches for my Spring/Summer collection, “Let’s Bring Back,” by Lulu Frost!”

  • “This is something I drew to remind me to ‘Keep Up the Work’ and I framed it in all white for a simple look. The book in the front is by my dear friend Lesley M.M Blume that inspirited our Spring/Summer collection, ‘Let’s Bring Back.'” 

  • How do you sparkle?
    Lulu Frost jewels of course!! A little touch of crystal near the face illuminates any look.
