about leah Leah Margolis Nathan is best known for her creativity and ability to see beyond what exists in front of her. Having grown up in Connecticut surrounded by beautiful decor, she found her calling after graduating from Skidmore College. With a studio art and art history background she moved to New York City and began experimenting with her traditional upbringing by incorporating more modern, clean lines with furnishings from flea markets, antique stores and showrooms. Leah quickly learned that mixing decors and price points helped to create a rich ensemble, even on a very small budget. With a true love for architecture and design that stems back from when Leah was just a child, she perused the New York City design community and was soon hired as a junior designer at Amanda Nisbet Design, Inc. While working with Amanda, Leah was engulfed in all aspects of the design business. She managed jobs in Manhattan and beyond, scheming and presenting projects big and small and styling for photo shoots featured in House Beautiful, O at Home, House and Garden and more. Additionally she was highly involved in the development process of Amanda's fabric and lighting lines. She left Amanda in 2008 to take a position as a senior designer for Rod Winterrowd, Inc. where she worked on projects in Manhattan's famed 15 Central Park West and 740 Park Avenue, as well as homes in Dallas and in Palm Beach. In early 2009, Leah began writing about interior design on her blog Deliciously Determined as a way to share her expertise with the design community. Just months after her first post, readers began requesting her help and, in a short time, Leah Margolis Design was born. In October 2009 Leah and her husband, a construction project manager, relocated to Saratoga Springs, taking on their biggest personal project to date, the total gut renovation of their own home. In spring of 2014, all of their efforts were recognized when they were honored by the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation. In the summer of 2014, Leah's kitchen was published in BH&G's Kitchen & Bath Makeover. That fall, Leah Margolis Design won the Showcase of Homes Luxury Home Interior Decorating Award and most recently, has been voted The Saratogian's Readers Choice for Best Decor in 2014 and 2015. Currently Leah works on residential projects throughout Saratoga and Albany Counties, the Berkshires, Manhattan and Connecticut. A great supporter of the arts, she served as the Saratoga Performing Art Center's Junior Committee President for three years and now sits on the Steering Committee as Past President.
