The best rooms have something to say about the people who live in them.” So said English interior designer David Hicks. Designer Nate Berkus has said something similar: “Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of what you love.”
I must say, I agree with both of them. After all, what are our homes if not a reflection of ourselves, a space filled with the things we love the most? I love that interior design is so wonderfully unique and personal.
October is our Homes issue, and it’s filled to the brim with tips and inspiration on personal style, the timeless and the trendy when it comes to home design. We chatted with a Hirshfield’s paint expert to get the scoop on some popular paint colors that will add a dose of glamor to your home (page 14). We picked the brains of some local designers who dished on home design elements that are currently trending but are also set to stand the test of time (page 24). And we interviewed Bria Hammel, interior designer and owner of Edina’s Brooke & Lou, who’s a firm believer that if you focus on what you love, your home will always feel in style (page 20).
I hope you’ll be inspired by the insights and tips found within these pages. And don’t worry, we’re covering more than home design, too! Flip through this issue for fall-inspired recipes, running tips and some major fashion inspiration. Enjoy!
