Creating a serene backdrop for a bedroom

Vani Sayeed’s clients desired a soothing bedroom that would not feel boring. “They reached out because of our shared Indian heritage, and they thought I would understand their sensibility and love of color,” says the Newton-based interior designer, who is also a fine artist. Tapping into their shared heritage, Sayeed choose an Osborne & Little wallpaper that depicts a fanciful, forested Indian mountain range with monkeys, cows, and abundant foliage. “The bedroom faces conservation land with lots of greenery,” Sayeed says. “This classic rural scene helps bring the outside in.”

Sheila Bridges and Alexa Hampton on Creating a Lasting Design Business

What do design talents Sheila Bridges and Alexa Hampton have in common? AD100 honoree designations, multifaceted design businesses, and industry staying power are among them. Both women have led their interior and product design firms for more than two decades, and have naturally learned many things when it comes to staying relevant—and staying in business—over the years.

Both decorators joined AD digital director David Kaufman this week for AD PRO’s latest Expert Eye event on the topic of “Creating a Lasting Design Business.” Here’s everything they had to say about how to persevere in this ever-changing industry.

Get savvy with saving
