In 2003, Lecusay relocated her business to Hawaii further enriching her designs through inspiration gathered from her travels through Asia & Bali, where the rich spiritual culture with generations of craftsmanship have attracted top designers from around the world. Bali's exotic resort-style living and art of ambient lighting influenced her to create Lakshmi Interiors, a design firm dedicated to creating timeless living environments in harmony with nature.
