Female icons are a big part of the design industry, past and present. In recognition, we at Traditional Home have put together a Women in Design-themed issue to celebrate these creative geniuses of all sorts—makers, designers, business boss ladies. This tip of the hat dovetails with an initiative by our parent company, Meredith Corporation. It is the first publisher to partner with the Association of National Advertisers in a commitment to show the true face of American women. Called #SeeHer, this movement’s goal is to accurately portray all women and girls in media so they see themselves reflected as they truly are.

CRAFTING NEW DIVERSITY Malene Barnett represents a fresh force in the design world. The ceramicist has banded with fellow creatives to found the Black Artists + Designers Guild, a consortium of talented black artists, architects, interior designers, and artisans around the globe. “We have a point of view that matters,” she says. “It needs to be seen.

KATE WADDELL Big, dramatic floral arrangements are all the rage. But this genius with flowers surprises with an unexpected approach—she paints them. Meet Kate Waddell, part of a burgeoning movement of young, female, Instagram-savvy Southern artists. Inspired by images of bouquets she sees online, the Georgian creates works that are more than just pretty pictures. Her vibrant paintings tug at the soul, evoking a dynamic sense of life and beauty. (katewaddellart.com) Maiden Maxwell East Coast glitz and classic Southern beauty marry well in KK Harris’ debut wallpaper and fabric collection, available this fall from her Richmond design studio, Maiden Maxwell. (maidenmaxwell.com) MOLLY HATCH Which came first: the paintbrush or the pottery wheel? “Definitely the paintbrush,” artist and designer Molly Hatch says. “My mother was a painter; my grandmother, even my great-great-grandmother had sketchbooks.” As Hatch’s…

peaches ’ plums

Summer just got juicy. And while the window to indulge in peaches and plums at the farmers market may be short, the fruits’ mark on interior palettes bears no apparent expiration date. That was the consensus at the latest round of trade shows. Plum, a sultry version of often-forgotten purple, and peach, the pastel that routinely stands in cousin pink’s shadow, dazzled—in bushels. As the main ingredient of an interior (Alexa Hampton’s dining room for her new collection with Theodore Alexander captivated with head-to-toe plum) or in small doses that serve as energizing accents, peach and plum hues provide sophistication and a signature look.…

Scale. It’s the Cinderella of the interior design world. Neglected and misunderstood, proper proportion often doesn’t get the attention it deserves. In any well-designed space, however, scale shouldn’t be ignored. In fact, a little playfulness should be embraced. “It’s hard to break the rules of scale in a workhorse room, like a dining room or sitting room,” New York designer Katie Lydon says. “But in this nook, we had some freedom. We wanted a daybed that was discreet and let the art be everything. It allows for a gallery-like feel.” Palette play—an injection of warm orange and icy blue—unites the elements, joining bold and quiet, large and small. “IN A ROOM THAT ISN’T MULTIFUNCTIONAL, YOU CAN HAVE SOME FUN WITH SCALE, PLAY WITH EXTREMES. HERE, WE LET THE COLORS PULL EVERYTHING TOGETHER.”—designer Katie…
