How 7 Interior Designers Are Making “Work From Home” Work For Them

“Currently I am hunkered down in Sedona, Arizona in the mountains. Typically, I don’t work a lot from a desk, but when I do, I try to find the most inspiring place to sketch and create. I’m very old school and use a notebook to write notes and draw. Since this isn’t my studio, I try to add a touch of myself, so I up-cycled my Balenciaga shirt onto a pillow to create the perfect chair. Another important item is my iPad, but the most important thing here is the view.”Alex Papachristidis

“Personal memorabilia is always nice to have in your home work space. I have a photograph of my partner Scott and me at my niece’s wedding in London, which was such a special time. Books are my inspiration, so I always have them at my side. My essentials are a cup full of matching pencils, all sharpened and ready to go, a flowering plant, and a bowl of fruit, so there’s a healthy snack right in front of me. I always have my coffee with a pretty little linen cocktail napkin. It makes morning coffee feel special and you can find them at any vintage shop. I’m even wearing a pair of slippers that were embroidered for me by my dear friend Ann Wolf, who is a decorator in Houston. There are so many sentimental things around me that all hold memories, it’s a great time to have them nearby. Right now I’m also cleaning out my space, gathering accessories and items I no longer use to donate to ARF, a no-kill shelter in Bridgehampton that also has a thrift shop. ARF is such a wonderful cause and charities need our support now more than ever.”Rayman Boozer of Apartment 48

“Employees and I have worked out of my home office for years, but in these trying times, it’s a whole new experience. The focal point of my office space is the 4’x 6′ upholstered pin-board; as every designer knows, the mood board is the prep station for all of our creative narratives. I often find myself organizing and re-pinning samples late into the night! The soul of the space has to be the wallpaper, Persia by Quadrille. On its own, the print seems quite busy; however, in context behind the pin-board, it’s surprising how it almost disappears into the room’s design. It’s the “neutral” that serves tons of personality!”Sasha Bikoff

“This is my New York City desk setup. It has color samples from my Versace Salone exhibition which are currently giving me life during these hard times. It also has my binder with my Hamptons house project info that I made using extra Flavor Paper wallpaper from a past Hamptons project. Just trying to put all the good energy out there to brighten up my days during quarantine life!”
