Confidence. If you have it, you can make anything look good.” Diane von Furstenberg spoke those words about fashion, but they’re just as meaningful when it comes to interior design. Today’s design isn’t about formulas. It’s about expressing yourself, letting the rooms you create show who you are. Confidence can come with experience, as in the case of Charlotte Moss. The design legend took traditional design elements, including a blue-and-white palette, and confidently gave them a fashion-forward spin for a young homeowner she’s known for years (“Design Osmosis,” page 58). “Jennifer was raised in a traditional environment,” Moss says. “It apparently seeped in by osmosis, but she’s now developed her own style. I suppose you’d call it the new traditional. It’s the best of the past and the best of today.” You’ll…

Marigold Living Every stitch on these pillows represents years of knowledge. Each flower and branch is a study in human artistry. Marigold Living strives to protect the ancient art of Indian handicraft with a collection of silk pillow covers demonstrating the beauty of Gara embroidery, a style of stitching—or “painting in threads”—developed by people of the Parsi community.

colors of love

Winter’s peak ignites an intense yearning for intense color. But not any color. Heartfelt values that range from aubergine and passionate purple to the brightest of feminine pink and reds of every depth give tables a pulse that pumps out memorable beauty. While the design community lauds the “mix”—colors, patterns, and textures that harmoniously live in the same aesthetic vein—a tonal approach equals style to be celebrated. Whether in a single tone for an intimate dinner for two or an ombré effect like this for a larger gathering, your settings should be something you love.…

“THERE IS A LOT OF CONTRAST BETWEEN CLASSIC TRADITIONAL AND MODERN. IT’S ALL MIXED TOGETHER TO CREATE A FRESHNESS THAT’S VERY CURRENT.”—designer Robert Stilin Casual elegance. It’s not as easy to pull off as one might think—unless, of course, you’re Ali MacGraw or Meghan Markle. Or, when it comes to interiors, you’re designer Robert Stilin. Stilin’s spaces exemplify the art of mixing vintage furnishings and modern art with clean-lined architecture in a seemingly effort less way. Here, for example, he deftly combines 1920s Craftsman-style architecture with a 1960s Mazzega pendant and an Arne Jacobsen Swan chair. The result is elegant yet immensely approachable. “The details here have a modern bend to make it crisp and current,” Stilin says. “The art, for example, is framed in a crisp, modern way. Yet it’s all mixed…

Winter weather encourages us to cozy up in front of a fire. But first, make sure your fireplace looks its absolute best with a stunning fire screen. After fires moved indoors, purely functional mesh metal screens prevented logs from rolling out and embers from escaping. Fire screens eventually evolved to allow temperature adjustment—sliding panels could open and close to control the heat emitted. More aesthetically interesting iterations appeared during the Victorian Era, when fire screens also became decorative. Ornamented with needlepoint and paint, they became a style statement. Today, fire screens continue to push design boundaries, flaunting unique forms and glamorous finishes. Consider them sculpture for your hearth. “SCREENS CAN BE VERY MODERN IN FEELING BUT ALSO WORK WELL AS A FOIL TO TRADITIONAL FIREPLACES.”—designer Miles Redd…
