happy joy spaces
"There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort"
"In the most successful spaces, you don’t see everything at once. The more time you spend in them, the more you discover. They open up like flowers."
Interior designer Vicente Wolf
"I must have books everywhere. They’re the soul of a room—they reveal the taste, the interests, and the secrets of whoever lives there."
Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg
"The best interiors make your heart pound."
Interior decorator Tony Fornabaio
"Real comfort, visual and physical, is vital to every room."
Interior designer Mark Hampton
"I dress homes the way I dress myself—layers and collages, bits of old things mixed with new, like a patchwork. Eclectic style is hard to achieve, but it’s always personal."
Textile designer Sherri Donghia
"Rooms are albums that provoke memories. What you decorate with should remind you of a street you wandered down or an experience that made you happy."
Designer Amy Hase
"The design process is hard work, but in the end I want my interiors to look inspired and relaxed, not studied."
Interior designer Katie Ridder
"I don’t think of decorating as a science or a discipline. People always say start with the rug, but it is often the last thing I end up selecting. I begin with whatever makes my heart sing."
Design shop owner Deborah Buck
"I don’t think people have enough fun with decorating. It doesn’t always have to be so serious. Design isn’t like marriage. You don’t have to commit for life."
Designer Ross Cassidy
