Windsor Smith - Backyard Beauty
What’s Next? According to designer Windsor Smith, it’s the launch of her new outdoor fabric line with Kravet. We had the chance to hear Windsor being interviewed by Pamela Jaccarino, Editor in Chief of LUXE Magazine, on Tuesday and see her new collection for ourselves. Many of the designs are based on Windsor’s most popular indoor fabrics and have been tested to last the test of time (40,000 “rubs”!)
As we sat there nodding and smiling at what Windsor had to say, we jotted down a few memorable quotes such as “furniture should be like a member of your family; even the precious needs to be approachable.”
A Fabulous Foyer
“A designer should be part therapist, part shaman, and very funny (you have to be to slide those bills through!)… and above all, a facilitator of great experiences.”
"Tell Me About Your Childhood..."
“In designing a house, you should look at how you live today and how you can support that lifestyle with beautiful things.”
When asked which room she’d do away with, this self-described “lifestyle architect” immediately answered “the formal living room.” She turned hers into a place where her teenage boys can hang, replete with comfy couches and a ping pong table.
Magnificent Man Cave
While we’re not ready to be so bold, we’re definitely thinking of tapping Windsor’s style and having her design some rooms. With her Room in a Box website, that just may be possible!
Easy as 1, 2, 3
