Best of Boston

2011 Best Interior Designer

Liz Caan Interiors

Exuberant (think: Miles Redd) and exacting (as in, David Hicks), Liz Caan has expelled boring beige from the palettes of Boston’s elite interiors. (And just in time, because we were running out of synonyms for oatmeal and ecru.) With a flash of fuchsia and couture flair, she turns every space into a chic party—approved by Brahmins and bankers alike.
