I wanted a space that was light, airy and filled with things meant to inspire creativity. I knew Stella, Ralph and I would spend a lot of time in here and I wanted it to be a beautiful respite.
Creating a space filled with design finds curated without a serious, straight lined inspiration. I feel like the project unfolded organically, with one find leading to another. It was definitely a labor of love.

Go with your design gut. Don't think you have to finish it all in one day and at one store. If you have the time and patience; sift, curate and collect "love" items over the months leading up to your birth. I so enjoyed creating this space for Stella.
