Originally from Atlanta, but has lived in many different parts of the country; both north and south, big city and small town. Having this well-rounded background has helped Lesley to develop a diverse sense of style. Possessing an affinity for architecture and design from a young age, she recalls drawing floor plans for home additions and renovations and enthusiastically proposing these to her parents. Arranging and rearranging her own room was done with great regularity, as well. Yet, it wasn’t until her sophomore year at the University of Kentucky, that she considered it as a career path. After graduating with a BA in Interior Design from UK’s College of Design, Lesley returned home to Atlanta and worked with several well- known, lauded Designers. Within 2 years she was transplanted to South Carolina and shortly thereafter, the new Mrs. L. Bright started the boutique firm, Ellebright Designs.
