Do Tell: Who are your favorite interior designers?

do tell designers

I realize that it is nearly impossible to pick a single favorite designer. At least it is for me. There are so many incredibly talented designers out there whose amazing work differs quite drastically in some cases. I attempted to tackle the question around this time last year in a series about my Top 20 Design Idols. My list ranges from young American designers like Nate Berkus, the girls at Massucco Warner Miller, and Miles Redd to some of my favorite European decorating gents like Michele Bonan and Lázaro Rosa Violán, the likes of whom I have waxed poetic about for ages now.

I want to hear from you all! Who are some of your favorite interior designers?

  1. funny how Nate is on everyone’s list.. including my own. Sarah Richardson, Candice Olsen, Kelly Wearstler, Kenneth Brown.. to name only a FEW! like you, i simply don’t have an absolute favorite. that’s a testiment to both the amazing talent out there.. and my varied style tastes!

  2. I’m with you on the Lazaro Rosa Violan- just obsessed with his portfolio at the moment. And thanks to an intro from Alcira, also adoring Luis Laplace. All time favourite is Kelly Wearstler. And I have to mention Meredith Heron because she’s total awesomesauce and her work on my kitchen has just utterly blown me away!!!

  3. Paloma,

    This is a really hard question. I love too many to name only one. Sometimes I think, if I could I’d have different designers designing different rooms of my house. I know it wouldn’t work, but it would be a nightmare have to pick only one! :-)

    Have a nice day!

KUSTER, MUNGE & LEUNG, P. YOVANOVITCH, R. DUMAS, R. TESIER, A. CABRE, S. HERMANN, T. CHI, A. PINTO, J-L. DENIOT, AND ESPECIALLY THE COMBINATION OF W. SOFIELD AND TOM FORD.

  6. LOVE PALMER WEISS, Kelly Wearstler, Anna Spiro (Black & Spiro), Diane Bergeron and India Hicks (even though she doesn’t call herself an interior designer).

  7. My Top Ten (living or deceased), in no particular order, would have to be: John Saladino, Bunny Williams, John Fowler, Miles Redd, Frank Babb Randolph, Steven Gambrel, Robert Passal, Suzanne Kassler, Jacques Grange, & Alex Papachristidis.

  8. Wow I will make sure to check all the designers from your lists, I am sure they are all amazing! I am a huge fan of americans Kelly Wearstler and Miles Reed and brazilian designers Neza Cesar, Brunete Fraccaroli and Sig Bergamin… oh so many!

  9. I adore Jan Showers and Ruthie Summers. I love the mixture of styles with the always consistent trademark of glamour. I have infused Murano glass in my own home and am always amazed on how it makes my house twinkle!

    I’m an east coast girl but I love west coast designers like Kristen Panitch, Joe Lucas and Parish Chilcoat, and Schuyler Samperton. Something about that west coast boho meets east coast traditional look really feels right for me. I want a house in Brentwood or Hancock Park!

  11. My favorite interior designer is Jonathan Berger. He decorated my Brooklyn town house, which you wrote about when it was on the cover of House Beautiful (http://www.housebeautiful.com/decorating/small-feminine-townhouse). Jonathan’s approach is about collecting fabulous pieces; I sold my place and the pieces we bought for that townhouse have transformed (with Jonathan’s help) three other houses–in Bequia (the Caribbean), Pawleys Island, and New York.
