Meet LJ Hannah, a recovering bureaucrat who listened to her heart and shares her love of design with her clients so they can love the space they are in! When she officially embraced her life-long hobby of staging homes for family, neighbors, and friends, LJ completed her transformation to the “Spacial Specialist” she was destined to become. LJ literally absorbs a space to create stylish and functional environments that can be enjoyed by everyone who experiences them.
LJ’s creativity comes to her intuitively. She cannot explain how she does what she does. She has been heard many times uttering these simple words, “it just happens.” You can say her talents are God-given and she further honed her skill-set through an affiliation with Closet Factory – an industry leader in home organization. She provides her clients with services well beyond interior design and organization. For the past six years, LJ has used technology and sound basic practices to transform personal and professional environments into peaceful, beautiful, comfortable and functional spaces.
What truly thrills LJ’s clients most is the result of her creativity, a space that aligns with and reflects their personalities. She can recreate spaces from a magazine but what sets her apart is how she can bring her clients personality into the transformation. She’s quirky, one of her many charms, which adds to the individuality of the spaces she brings to life.
In the not-so-distant past, LJ spent 25 years as a public servant in local government. Having reached her goal of becoming a city manager, LJ ultimately resigned from her last position when her personal morals and professional ethics were challenged once too many times.
Adept at seeing the “big” picture thanks to a career focused on being organized, managing projects, and being a visionary, this experience enhanced her ability to envision how a space in her client’s home or office can work best. Born and raised in Montreal, LJ moved to Toronto at age 23 and then emigrated to Florida in 1989. She is multilingual (English with some “Spanglish” and “Frenglish to make it work!)
On a very personal note, her path is one of self-enlightenment – to return to a simpler lifestyle and focus on what she considers to be the most important aspects of appreciating everything and everyone that surrounds her. Her conviction to inner work has helped her create a positive mind shift thanks to The Master Key Experience where she learned how to redefine many habits constructively.
A believer in alternative therapies to treat illnesses and pain, LJ now embraces a cleaner and greener lifestyle. A volunteer since her early teens, LJ believes in actively participating in making a difference. From humble beginnings volunteering for the Boys’ & Girls’ Club as a 16-year-old, to working in the HIV/AIDS community for more than a dozen years in the early 90’s, and through to her current time with Volunteers of the Palm Beaches.
She lives in South Florida in a villa surrounded by the things she loves. Her mission is to help others create a space that helps them live the life they love.
