Ruthie the Early Years

I'm in a rush this morning, but quickly here is a look at Ruthie Sommers' earlier interiors. Some of the antiques -- maybe even a pillow -- should look familiar.

Love that photo of Ruthie's home from Instyle ;)
You can definitely see the seeds of Ruthie's fabulous style from these early photos.

Very interesting to watch a designer's work develop over time.
I've always thought Ruthie Sommers had such a talent for composition and this bears out in these photos.

I love that photo from InStyle--definitely fun to see some of the elements from the earlier shots make their way into the InStyle one.
