When it comes to an interior designer’s practice, the focus is typically on the client — figuring out a design that lends to the client’s desires, space, style, and needs. Like artists, when designers create for clients, naturally their own personal taste is infused in their creation; and, when looking at their overarching portfolio of work, you may be able to infer an idea of who they are. Yet, there are some spaces that speak to the individuality of the designer more than others, some that really showcase their true aesthetic. Curious to see what these would be, we asked Dering Hall designers to send us spaces that best represent themselves or their style. Read on to see their most personal spaces, from rooms in their own homes to projects for clients that serendipitously turned into a design self portrait.

  • "This project is one of my favorites because it reflects our core philosophy of simplicity and ease. It depicts our love of creating light-filled spaces, working with neutrals, and incorporating a range of textures to add interest, depth, and warmth. When our client purchased this townhouse, it was closed in, dark, and dated. We were able to transform it into an open, light-filled, serene modern oasis. This would not have been possible without her trust, an integral part of the process for us. Our goal was also to infuse her vibrant personality into the space — and to do that, we included some whimsical, fun pieces throughout."
