I’m always intrigued by the interiors of the homes belonging to my favorite interior designers. As designers we are exposed to so much in the marketplace and it’s often more difficult for us to make selections for ourselves. Our home becomes sort of a laboratory where we experiment with colors and patterns until we find just the right formula for our true personal style. If I’ve learned anything from the design greats about curating a home you’ll always love, I know that we should give ourselves time to find pieces that will last and last.
I’ve interviewed Harlem interior designer Sheila Bridges in the past (you can read her interview with me here), however she recently gave One Kings Lane a tour of her home and gave a personal account of her design process. In this interview you will also find advice for editing your space, embracing wallpaper, and how to incorporate classic design in your home’s interiors without it feeling stuffy. Sheila’s home is stunning yet comfortable, and appears to be a retreat within the hustle and bustle of New York City. Scroll on for a tour of her classic abode.
