About ME

While I love pink and green, it isn’t for me. Think subtle, creamy tones, shades of warm gray in sophisticated pairings, a dramatic navy blue with pristine furniture and fine art. Earthy tones of sun-kissed terracotta bricks or spicey evergreen. I love the outdoors and enjoy seeing it surround me inside my home too. CLD seeks to create truly unique spaces, including choosing paint colour, wall coverings, draperies, furniture and all objets d'art. We design lovely gardens too. Clifton Lyons Design expertise and passion for art and design is fueled by years spent as an early pioneer in the web industry, guest lecturer, professor of fine art and design, interior decorator for the best CT has to offer, and by a childhood spent in an environment where creative talent was nurtured and encouraged by family and friends.


BFA in Graphic Design from Boston University: Full scholarship. A great school and experience, located in my second favorite city in the Northeast.

Graduate Certificate in Design from Yale University: I studied design in Brissago, SWI on Lago Maggiore with Paul Rand and Armin Hofmann. Changed my life.

MFA in Painting from WCSU: I love color & texture. What a treat to have two solid years at an “advanced” age to study painting full-time with bi-weekly trips to openings in NYC. Talk about HEAVEN!
