Something clicked when Sally Breer and Jake Rodehuth-Harrison founded their interior firm ETC.etera in 2016. An interior designer and a stylist/creative director, respectively, they combined their powers to establish a thriving design domain that has taken the Los Angeles design scene by storm. Embracing hallmarks of both modern and old world Hollywood Hills style, the pair has fast established themselves with projects ranging from Silver Lake to Venice Beach. Surveying their work, it comes as no surprise that Breer and Rodehuth-Harrison aim to “please the eye as well as to the soul.”
London’s legendary Annabel social club may have a strict no phones after 6 P.M. rule, but don’t be fooled—the fantastical space, designed by London’s Martin Brudnizki—begs to be buzzed about. Annabel, which opened this past March, is just one of the latest projects for Brudnizki, the Swedish-born designer who has spent the past decade transforming some of the world’s most storied hotels, clubs, and eateries into wondrous, maximalist escapes.
If you’ve caught any of our recent Seminar Series, you’ve likely spotted interior designer Kati Curtis in the crowd. A self-professed devotee of the arts, Curtis is always eager to soak in something new. Curtis’s worldly ambitions are mirrored in her approach to interior design. There is nothing soulless about a Kati Curtis design. Her rooms daringly combine modern aesthetics with an array of colorful global prints and heirlooms—be it a pair of temple doors lugged home from Bali, or a shapely, hand-me-down tiger-upholstered chaise nicknamed simply, “The Tigress.” To go along with Curtis’s recent collection of DECASO favorites, we caught up with the New York designer to learn more about her design approach, including her favorite way to pump up the drama in a room and the riskiest design move she’s ever made (and why it paid off big).
Deemed the “King of East Coast chic,” designer Anthony Baratta has spent the past 35 years constructing a unique brand of New England glam. After graduating from Fordham University, Baratta opened his first interior design firm in 1981. In the years that followed, Baratta built a portfolio chock full of color-rich interiors punctuated with classical coastal flairs. He also graced over 50 industry magazine covers, debuted three home decor collections, and earned the Benjamin Moore “Hue Award” for lifetime achievement in design.
