The Best of Women in Business 2021: Perla Lichi
As evidenced by her eclectic taste, Perla has lived her life setting trends rather than following them.
“That is exactly why people want Perla Lichi. I am a trendsetter, always ahead of the trends. After the year we’ve just had, we need to set the tone with colors that make people feel good. No more monochromatic grey skies! I am bringing in the colors of the sunset, with organic reds and oranges, pinks and purples. Like the tranquility of the ocean blues and greens, the natural elements always work wonders for the room and the soul. People need a breath of fresh air with their surroundings, especially now,” she says.
Gaining inspiration from her wanderlust, love of people, astrology, numerology and her multi-cultural Mexican, Mediterranean and Turkish roots, Perla keeps extremely busy with a roster of clients who know she will deliver something special to enhance their lives.
After 40 years in the business, Perla, a self-proclaimed workaholic, has found the secret to her success is doing what she loves, while finding the work/life balance to spend quality time with her family and grandkids.
“They are my greatest inspiration by far,” she says.
