Each year, the November issue of Elle Decor recognizes the top women in the field of design. Ranging from interior designer to clothing designer, each woman was chosen because they have influenced the way we live today. This year’s lucky women include: Diane von Furstenberg (clothing designer), Deborah Berke (architect), Sheila Bridges (interior decorator), Ann Gish (designer of luxury home items), and Victoria Hagan (interior designer).
Although varying careers, all five women share common design theories and opinions. Reading each interview, it becomes clear that the design world today is focused on practicality, simplicity, and comfort. Younger generations are also maintaining a strong focus on green materials and incorporating these items into their daily life. Ultimately though, most people today are trying to the find the ideal sense of balance when it comes to design. A few of the featured designers use nature as the perfect example of all parts and pieces working in flawless harmony. No matter what style, the best design will always be one of a balanced union of all pieces of the whole.
