Where Stella + the Stars gets inspired
Stella + the Stars' style is eclectic to say the least. I have always been drawn towards designs that are bold, rich, colourful but mainly playful. I love having a home that is fun and makes a statement of my personality. I believe life is way too short to take yourself too seriously... Unsurprisingly, my interior design heroes are (in no particular order) Abigail Ahern, Philippe Starck, Jonathan Adler, and Tom Dixon.
Tom Dixon OBE is an award-winning, self-taught designer famous for his devastatingly innovative designs. Since the inception of TOM DIXON, the company he started with David Begg in 2002, he has developed his own collection of contemporary lighting and furniture including the acclaimed Mirror Ball Collection of lights and more recently Copper Shade.
Jonathan Adler started his career in pottery before becoming one of the most acclaimed interior designers. He has been celebrated for the mod shapes, vibrant colours and organic eye-poppoing patterns that have become his signature today. His 'happy, handcrafted and luxe' designs are translated into his paintings with a sense of fun and whimsy.
Abigail Ahern is recognised amongst design aficionados and devotees alike for her enchanting take on interiors. Her style mixes glamour, eclecticism and wit.
Internationally renowned for her uncompromising taste, Abigail has redefined the visual landscape with her cleverly mixed collections, her original interpretational of trends, her unique sense of style and a wholly individual approach to interiors.
Philippe Starck is one of Stella + the Stars design heroes. The French designer has become widely known since the start of his career in the 80's for his interior, product, industrial and architectural design work. Amongst other career hightlights, Starck has embarked on a crusade to democratise quality 'designer' hotels, beginning with the Paramount in New York and he then brought his generous and humanist concept to Paris as the Mama Shelter.
