Designers' Assistants Featured in The New York Times

Recently, an interesting story,"For Designers’ Disciples, Home as Homework" ran in The New York Times. The focus was on assistants to well established interior designers, and how these employees decorate their own homes on budgets much smaller than those of their bosses' clients. Assistant to Ruthie Sommers, Krista Wooten was among those mentioned. Isn't her bedroom above fabulous? So fresh and well-edited.

BTW: Here's a link to one of my first Sommers posts: Fresh Sommers Vibe.

Having worked for two established firms in the past, I can say that most designers are very generous when it comes to giving away leftover fabric, lampshades, even furniture....this is such a neat take on an article! You could go on and on, profiling these people and those that they work for. Thanks for the link!

I love this bedroom. The unexpected red against the clean edited style of the white and the graphic rug. Well I would hire this "assistant" in a second. k

Love the red zig zag rug, very similar to the one used by Miles Redd in the blue colourway for one of the bedrooms on his website he designed. If ever this assistant came to Australia, she'd have a job with me at Black & Spiro!!
