In 2008, Lisa Borgnes Giramonti founded a lifestyle/design blog called "A Bloomsbury Life" with one goal in mind: to figure out how to live a modern life through an Old World lens. Since then, over two million visitors have joined her on her quest to live more meaningfully. Today, "A Bloomsbury Life" attracts over 50,000 hits a month and is read by people in over 140 countries.

Her home design book, "Novel Interiors," about how classic novels can inspire your decorating style, was named a People Magazine "Best of Holiday Gift Pick", and was enthusiastically reviewed by the New York Times, the Wall St. Journal, Architectural Digest, Lonny Magazine and many other publications.

Lisa is also an embroidery artist, and in 2013 the Huffington Post declared her one of "Five LA Women Artists to Watch" -- in their words, "She melds the lost art of needlepoint with a Dorothy Parker-like sensibility." Her work is in many private collections including Soho House Hollywood. Her 2010 solo show at the ACME Gallery in Beverly Hills was featured in the LA Times, Angeleno Magazine, C Magazine and other art journals. 

She has written for Martha Stewart magazine, Hyland magazine and W Magazine, and her work has graced the pages of House Beautiful, In Style, Lonny, Elle Decor, C Magazine, and more. Lisa's personal story and lifestyle are featured in the book Undecorate by Christiane Lemieux (Potter Style, 2011) The Mothers of Reinvention by Jennifer Pate and Barbara Machen (2012), and It's The Little Things by Susanna Salk (Rizzoli, 2016).
