interiordesigners_cover

An interior designer has free reign to transform a space. When standard design tropes start to feel repetitive—more traditional and museum-like than free and inspired—we turn to the creatives at the forefront of innovative design and brand building. Meet five designers who make inventive—and inviting—choices for living spaces composed from uncommon elements, author books and run brick-and-mortar shops on the side.

Justina Blakeney’s design aesthetic isn’t just for her clients—it’s her way of life. Her book, The New Bohemians: Cool Collected Homes, embraces a free spirited no-rules ethos that must be mighty appealing considering it made the NY Times bestseller list.

His cleverly punned title, The Mat Finish, is representative of the whimsical sense of humor Mat Sanders brings to all of his designs, his shop Consort Design and insta captions. Plus, when you sort of look like your dog, you know you’re good people.

While some minimalists create cold and sparse spaces, Nam Dang Mitchell’s understated and selective design style creates a comfortable warmth in each space she works with. She designs with a user in mind, namely herself, especially for this low-key beauty salon. She created a place for women who don’t feel comfortable in a “glossy diva environment.”
