I have a new design crush! When I first saw the work of Chloe Warner in this month’s Domino Magazine I felt as if I had met a girl after my own heart. After speaking with Chloe I knew for certain that she was a kindred spirit!
Not only is Chloe a graduate of the architecture program at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, she was exposed from a young age to rooms designed by Sister Parish and Albert Hadley (how cool and wonderful is that!).
Both her mother and grandmothers instilled in her a belief that interiors matter and the worst kind of taste is no taste at all. It seems as if their sage advice paid off. I expect we will be seeing a lot more of Chloe’s work in the years to come.
Tomorrow I will introduce you to Chloe’s design partner, the beautiful Tyler Dawson.
What decorating trend you would like to see less of? What would you like to see more of?
Less flocked wallpaper, more chintz.
Do you have a favorite fabric or pattern?
I adore most overscaled bird-on-linen prints. Lee Jofa and Schumacher both make lovely versions.
What it the one thing in life you can’t live without?
Aside from Mr. Warner and Mies VanDerKitty, I am addicted to San Pellegrino.
How would you describe your personal style?
Post-preppy glam. My design partner and I spend all day
asking each other “what if we made it gold?”
Thinking about your own home what is your favorite room?
My bedroom is perfect; the palate is tight and bold (pink, gold, green, ivory), the patterns are balanced (floral, geometric, toile, neutral textures), and there are symmetric elements (bed, dressing tables, bedside table lamps) thrown off by non-symmetric elements (mismatched bedside tables). There is zero clutter, two pastels on the wall, flattering lighting and my favorite room scent tucked out of sight (Mimosa by Antica Farmacista).
What do you consider to be the real luxuries in life?
Having someone else pet-hair-roll your house, a hilarious husband, a healthy family, TiVo, a reservation at French Laundry. If I had all these things at once I would probably hang it up. It couldn’t get better!
Who would you most like to meet and how would you spend the day?
The Wearstler. We would start off with a leisurely tour of her house, followed by her spending the entire day teaching me to be a baller. Then she would loan me an outfit and invite all my friends over for a dinner party.
