There is an oriental influence apparent in Sara Story's designs. Not surprising as she was born in Japan and travelled extensively in Asia. Her style is contemporary, eclectic and timeless. Clean lines, contrasting neutrals, rich textures and a global streak are typical of her work. I think I need a Hermes box or 2.

Jamie Drake is a genius with colour. His portfolio is brilliant, and this Fifth Avenue loft really stood out. "Surprise and movement - that's what I like. Colors both ground and animate this space, whether washing in yellow or popping with pink. High gloss lacquer, antique mirror and rich silk velvets and shantungs polish up the eclectic mix of furnishings."
Antonia Hutt's understanding of the exceptional and her love for refinement are the core of her design philosophy. So says her website and I think these pictures reinforce that belief.

Based in Los Angeles her work draws on her exceptional taste and wealth of experience.
