The Latest Buzz

Strike A Pose

Isn't She Lovely?

We’re so excited to see our client and good friend, Schuyler Samperton, in the pages of this month’s Vogue!  With her model good looks and fabulous talent, it’s no wonder Carolyn Murphy tapped Schuyler to add her special je ne sais quoi to her 1920’s Spanish Colonial in Los Angeles.

At Home with Carolyn

When Shuyler asked us last year to send her pink peonies and roses for a “photo shoot”, little did we know that they would end up in the pages of Vogue (sadly, they didn’t since pictures of Carolyn’s daughter’s room didn’t make the cut!)

Beautiful Bath

Working with a divine designer like Schuyler on her myriad projects is truly one of the best parts of our jobs…  Whether it’s a palm tree for an outdoor bistro, or a mass of pink bougainvillea for a home in Beverly Hills, we know that our pieces find happy homes in each lovely space she designs.

Pops of Pink

Schuyler has just launched her blog, Sparks, and we can’t wait to read about her upcoming projects.  In the meantime, click on over to see where she sourced the wonderful furniture and accessories she added to Carolyn’s home – so clever!

Q & A

Q & A with Schuyler Samperton

No one captures the essence of California cool mixed with worldly flair quite like LA-based designer Schuyler Samperton.  The daughter of an award-winning architect and a fashionista, Schuyler seems to have inherited a true sense of the eccletic tempered by English colonial elegance.  And while she looks like a quintessential West Coast beauty, Schuyler is actually from Washington, DC!

Schuyler launched her interior design career with Michael Smith after six years as a publicist for the Fox Broadcasting Company.  In 2003 she went on her own and by 2006 was named one of “Today’s Tastemakers” by Vogue Living in its inaugural issue.



We will always remember the April 2007 Domino magazine which featured Schuyler’s home, loving every aspect of her “bohemian rhapsody” style.  Needless to say, we were thrilled when she called us last year to help on a project in Greece and even more so when she agreed to our Q & A!



1.   What did you want to be when you were a child?
My father is an architect, so I actually grew up playing interior decorator with a bunch of Knoll swatches I grabbed from his office.  My first clients were my Tibetan terriers, Hector and Teddy.

2.   What is your necessary luxury?
Henry Beguelin boots

3.   What is your favorite decorating accessory?
I love working with antique textiles – I use them as throws, pillows, headboards and furniture upholstery – you name it!

4.   Where do you window shop?
Montecito, CA is a completely gorgeous, local get-away spot with fantastic stores

5.   What makes a house of home?
Books and dogs

6.   What is the most enjoyable part of your day?
Taking my dog Tricky for a nice long walk at the end of the day

7.   What is your favorite flower?

8.   If you were a cocktail, what would you be?
Believe it or not, I’ve never has a drink in mylife!  It’s not very thrilling, but I guess I’d have to be a sparkling lemonade.

9.   If your life were made into a movie, what would be the title and who would play your part?
“Relentlessly Optimistic”, and I’d want Catherine Keener to play my part.  She’d made me seem a lot cooler and funnier than I actually am.

10. Name one thing from your “Bucket List”
To drive across the country, and really take my time
