We’re back with a new guest tastemaker for some quick-fire questions and a mini-curation of some fab Chairish finds!

Since the establishment of her firm in 2014, Los Angeles-based interior designer Stefani Stein has become known for her relaxing design aesthetic that pays homage to the California lifestyle. Stein – who was named a Rising Star by California Home + Design in 2019 – recently launched a line of luxury wall paper called August Abode, which was inspired by some of her own hand-drawn sketches, as well as her love of travel.

Read on to find out her philosophy on design trends, and where she plans on visiting after lockdown.
