A stylist's home is the ultimate canvas. Freed from clients' constraints, these creative people choose objects and arrange their spaces, which ultimately reflect their personal philosophies about living. Learn what they have to say about the process and see how it plays out in their own homes.
Don't Necessarily Run Out and Buy Things.
As an interior designer I choose new designs for my clients, but for my own home, I tend to prefer crafty or old stuff. If I buy something, I want to buy only things that stand the test of time. But even better is to buy nothing at all and do-it-yourself! — Suzanna Vento in Dwell Magazine
When You Do Buy, Prioritize Spending
Splurge on pieces that set your home apart from others–on unique pieces, conversation pieces, totally one of a kind pieces. This could be a piece of art or a piece of furniture–but don’t spend a ton of money on something that other people will have–save that for the pieces that will make your home look as interesting as you are. - Emily Henderson on Everygirl
You Have to Try and Maybe Fail.
Mix It Up Versus Stick to One Style
The devil is in the details! Mix different materials and use only objects that you love, not items that you think will “create a style”. A beautiful chandelier can give atmosphere to the entire room. - Joanna Laven on Nordic Design
