They say "the cobbler's children have no shoes"
... well in this instance this is certainly not the case! Ronda Rice Carman's
new book Designers at Home, Personal Reflections on Stylish Living beautifully illustrates the intimate spaces
of fifty leaders of design world. In my opinion, there is no space like that of
your own home that says more about your personal style and aesthetic. That
being said, we as designers, probably have a love/hate relationship with
designing our own spaces. Our standards are exacting and sometimes (often) our
taste preferences certainly exceed our pocketbooks (speaking for myself, of
course). I remind my children frequently as they are complaining about my
obsession with household details that I get paid good money to be OCD.
Our homes are our canvases on which we craft our art, so
thank you Ronda for such a thoughtful glimpse into these extraordinarily
talented designers' self-portraits!
