I spend the most time in my living room when I’m home, so it’s all about comfort to me (and to my husband Sam and our two dogs, Huck and Lulu). I think the room is cozy and comfortable and probably one of the most masculine spaces I’ve ever created. The color palette is a mix of chocolate brown, lemon yellow and moss green and the style is a mix of vintage (old maps, vintage calligraphy, antique horse prints) with more modern shapes (Lucite trays, modern lamp, etc.). The Ruby Press office is completely different- very light, airy and full of girly touches. I think having that juxtaposition in my day is quite nice!
I’ve never created or decorated a room after another room I’ve seen, it’s a much more gradual process and it’s always evolving. That being said, these are images that inspire me and the evolution of our living room.

John Derian’s prints, always, always….(I have a collection of his plates on one of the walls!)
