hold onto your hats because today we’ve got a before + after from interior decor legend, annette tatum. annette is the author of the well-dressed home (a sensational book about styling your home based on your wardrobe, which you must immediately run out and purchase) and creator of the interior décor lines house and little house. today, she has graciously opened the doors of her santa monica studio and welcomed us on a behind the scenes tour of the renovated space. known for creating inspirational textiles, annette’s superb designs are always comfortable, though never predictable. her colorful fabrics work together in surprising and unexpected ways, similar to the interior of her studio. by mixing textures and using bright colors annette has created a clean, comfortable sanctuary. the interior proves why her book is flying off bookstore’s shelves and her designs can be found in retail shops worldwide.
i’d especially like to thank annette tatum and katherine ryan for taking the time to send me photos of their santa monica, california transformation. i'd also like to credit the talented, cristina mendigochea, for her sensational photos.
