Working in Style: Hoyt-Levasseur
A peek into an old inspiration notebook uncovered the office of Heather Hoyt and Alison Levasseur. Back in 2000, something possessed me to paste tears from magazines collage-style onto the notebook pages, so please forgive all the rough edges here.
When these photos were taken, (House Beautiful, circa 2002) the Hoyt-Levasseur interior design team said they were experiencing a Chinese moment -- an over-the-top Chinese moment. Note the large red lacquer work desk juxtaposed with pink walls, and what I think are aubergine patent leather chairs. Remember too that six years ago displays of coral would have been a fresh look.
