Profile: Sara Story

One of the designers that I instantly fell for last year was Sara Story. Sara was one of the domino 10 to watch for 2007. I felt an immediate connection to her beautiful, calming and sophisticated interiors which reflect her extensive travels and global upbringing.

Sara was born in Japan and has lived in Texas, California and New York. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of San Diego, and received a degree in Interior Architecture at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco.

Sara moved to New York City in 2001, where she worked with prominent designers. Keen to infuse her own vision into the world of interiors, she created Sara Story Design, a firm specializing in contemporary, eclectic and timeless interiors. Sara's designs are as beautiful as the designer herself.

How would you describe your personal style?
I aim for timeless interiors with elegance and edge…a space that is inviting yet sophisticated and fun.

What is the one thing in life you can’t live without?
My two little boys, Duke and Edward

What books are currently on your bedside table?
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, and stacks of magazines…ranging from Vogue, ELLE Décor and Vanity Fair

What inspires your designs and creativity?
Travel and fashion inspire my interiors.

Who would you most like to meet and how would you spend the day
I would love to meet Madonna. I would want to go to yoga class in the morning, then hit the recording studio, listen to her new tunes and have some cocktails together listening to all of her stories!

What is your favorite luxury in life
First class travel.

What is your most prized possession?
My yellow canary diamond ring my husband just gave me.

Who are your style icons?
Tom Ford, Miuccia Prada, and Madonna

What is your idea of earthly happiness
St.Barts with my family and friends.

So that's the story in Sara, her designs have a nice feng shui to them, they rooms have a sense of ordered calm, restrained yet modern.
