Elizabeth Grant Design

“I’ve made lots of things beautiful, but helping people on a deeper level is really what thrills me,” says Elizabeth Grant. Last fall, she made the leap from the award-winning team at Destiny Homes to create her own design/remodel firm, one that follows an entirely unique model.

Grant takes the stress off your plate by representing you to the trades. Her team handles design, selections, bidding, and management of your remodel or update. But her key objective is working with you to discover your style and tell your personal story.

Not surprisingly, this gives her an intimate look at her clientele. She realizes that “people have so many bigger needs than just designing a room, remodeling a space or adding onto their home. I end up being kind of a lifestyle coach. When I can find a personal resource for my clients, it fulfills me professionally and personally. I love to help bring people to a better life.”

So, Grant is helping clients create not only beautiful, peaceful inner sanctums but internal sanctums as she hosts retreats at her home studio in Minnetonka, featuring “creating your best life” classes, ketogenic cooking tutorials and more. “Aesthetics are so important,” she explains. “What you see out the window is as much part of the interior as what’s inside.” That is to say, your home should be beautiful, but so should your inner life.
