SYLVIA PAGÁN WESTPHAL
Founding Partner and Owner
Sylvia founded H&B when she realized that styling and interior design where intricate components of her work in luxury real estate. Sylvia is a licensed real estate agent and works with MGS Group Real Estate, a boutique real estate firm in Boston.
Clients reach out to Sylvia when they are starting to think about putting their luxury home on the market. She has renovated, built and sold multiple luxury properties in Boston and Miami, and she advises clients on the best strategy to introduce their luxury home to buyers.
Sylvia also partners with Amy and Lisa on several of H&B's interior design projects, helping oversee their trajectory and collaborating with Amy and Lisa on design selections.
Principal Interior Designer and Founding Partner
Amy has a background in Fine Arts and Art History with a BFA from Pratt Institute and MFA from Parsons in Interior Design and the History of Decorative Arts and Design.
Prior to founding Herringbone & Brass, Amy worked as set designer and production designer for Emmy Award winning television programs, commercials and independent films in Los Angeles. In New York City, Amy worked as Creative Director for AD 100 firm Campion Platt, and as Senior Interior Designer for Thom Filicia.
After moving to Boston in late 2018, Amy collaborated with several interior design firms in the Boston Area until she decided to start Herringbone & Brass in late 2019. Amy lives in Duxbury with her architect husband and son.
Lisa brings over a decade of experience in the design industry to Herringbone and Brass--both as a member of large architecture firms and as an independent consultant for residential, retail, and corporate projects.
Her lifelong passion of making and curating beautiful things was honed at the Boston Architectural College where she earned her Masters in Interior Architecture. Lisa was a District Chair for Boston Landmarks Commission, where she gained appreciation for the past, and she incorporates that love of historic details into her designs today. She brings a fine eye, skilled hands, and a calm voice to all her client projects.
Beyond her interior design practice, Lisa is the owner of Mavan Macarons, specializing in custom, hand-painted French Macarons. She is a graduate of Boston College and she and her family are longtime Boston residents.
