REBECCA TIER SOSKIN
New York, NY
WHAT'S NEW ABOUT YOU?
I spend time looking for great bargains and old furniture that needs new life. Taking simple, rustic yet classic pieces and painting them, adding bold fabrics, and making them look trendy and chic is not only affordable but a beautiful way to make a statement.
WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE DECORATOR EVER?
Billy Baldwin. Master of mixing the old and new.
WHAT'S THE MOST INSPIRING THING YOU'VE SEEN LATELY?
I recently watched The Graduate again, and the Robinsons' lounge/bar inspired me to want to decorate in a swanky '60s California style with strong black and white contrasts, simple lines, and a sophisticated elegance.
TELL US ONE OF YOUR SECRET DESIGN RESOURCES.
. Great for affordable ikat fabrics and pillows.
MAKE A DECORATING PREDICTION.
Mixing and matching will take on a whole new level. It's all about hits and bits of luxury, a few bargains, and bold splashes of color. Turquoise and violet will be very popular.
