Be Inspired: Featured Designer Ruthie Sommers

Ruthie Sommers Designer Feature

While answering PDB’s four interview questions for the upcoming Guest Blog this Friday (I’m really looking forward to ‘formally’ meeting ya’ll!), I had the chance to sit down and really consider what tangible inspiration sources I rely on on a regular basis.

One of my favorite go-tos are those individuals that I know do it best: interior designers who have not only proven their worth in portfolio pics and clients, but have also captured a unique style that keeps me coming back looking for more inspirational examples. After all, who better to turn to than those that spend every minute of their day drenched in design — and who are oozing with inspiration that just might rub off on the rest of us (fingers crossed!).

Pepper Design Blog Ruthie Sommers Feature 2

So I thought I might start sharing several of my favorite interior designers by channeling a bit of of their creative energy our direction on a regular basis here at Pepper.

To kick this little series off, I chose one of my very favorites: Ruthie Sommers first came onto my watch list after a showcase on her collaboration with Drew Barrymore in Domino Magazine. More on this after the jump.

Designer Feature: Ruthie Sommers 3

In addition to a very successful career as a Los Angeles-based designer (featured in House Beautiful, Traditional Homes, Coastal Living, Architectural Digest, Southern Accents, Lucky and Style Compass — check out this online magazine here) Sommer’s home decor store, Chapman Radcliff Home, has been amazingly fruitful since it’s inception in 2002.

The two things I love most about Ruthie’s designs: {1.} her ability to blend multiple styles seamlessly into one beautiful room (modern lines, vintage furniture, oriental prints…) and {2.} her incorporation of patterns and textiles that bring life and activity to a room, but never come off as over the top.

More eye-candy after the jump! Continue reading
