5 Spaces I Love Series: Taylor

Meet our incredible new team member, Taylor Walters! Taylor will be heading up Society Social CLT operations as well as new business development. We are so excited to have her! 

As stepping into one's "dream home" is a great way to get to know more about them as well as their personal style, we asked Taylor to roundup photos of her 5 favorite spaces. Let's just say this was an incredibly daunting task for Taylor as with over 8 years of experience in the home furnishings industry, Taylor had collected quite the stack of magazine tear-outs over the years. After a week of deliberation and multiple heart-breaking cuts, Taylor narrowed down her 5 favorites. We like to call Taylor the "Grandmillenial Maximalist" of our group -- scroll below to see why!

1. Andy Cohen's Apartment in Elle Decor.  Designed by: Eric Hughes:

When it comes to a design, the more color the merrier is my motto! I
love how color is the main focus of this room and was achieved through
the use of varying cultural touches.  From Mexican-inspired blankets
to bamboo-detailed pieces, this space makes me feel like I'm about to
embark on an adventure!

2. Architectural Digest December 2017.  Designed by India Mahdavi:

This space by India Mahdavi is the perfect mix of vibrant color and
feminine touches.  In my world, yellow 100% a neutral.  Here it acts
as a grounding force for this Josef Frank floral wallpaper creating an
environment that would make anyone feel as if they are awakening in a
secret garden.

3. One King's Lane Home Tour.  Home of Bobby Graham and Matthew

I love an overcrowded and stylized bookshelf.  My home is a
collage of meaningful objects that I've collected over the years and
are showcased in a way that brings me joy.  Here, in this charming
West Village abode, this same concept applies all while creating an
environment that is relaxed yet sophisticated.  Take a look at those
archways and that view!

4. House and Garden UK.  Anna Spiro's home by her design:

Anna Spiro, a long-standing favorite designer of mine, can do no
wrong.  With the term "Grandmillennial" taking the nation by storm,
Anna puts her own twist on this new-traditional style infusing it with
highly saturated hues and layering patterns on top of patterns. 

.  Kit Kemp Pop-Up Shop in Bergdorf Goodman:

Kit Kemp is the master of commercial and hospitality settings.  As the
creative director and owner of Firmdale Hotels, her sophisticated yet
whimsical style shines through every project she completes.  Whether
enjoying a cocktail at the Crosby Hotel in Soho or sipping a cup of
tea uptown at the Whitby, there is plenty of texture, color and
pattern to enamor.  In this space, she has designed and curated a
pop-up shop in Bergdorf Gooman--a true maximalist's dream!  In the
words of Iris Apfel, "More is more and less is a bore!"
