ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
Sarah & Ruby’s unique style combines traditional design, nature, and craft, yet is decidedly modern. Their designs strike a fabulous balance between organic and sophisticated, while maintaining an artisanal, hand-rendered quality.
What inspires you?
I recently had the opportunity to view Antoni Gaudi's architecural works in Barcelona. What I found particularly inspiring was his ability to break from traditional thinking and develop a style completely his own. Likewise, living in the Bay Area, with both its high-tech and creative arts, has consistently inspired me to think outside-the-box.
What do you love about being a designer?
I love the adventure of it all. I love that when I start a project I have one idea in my head, but by the time I’ve finished the design has gone in a different (usually more interesting!) direction. I love the way every project is like a puzzle that needs to be fit together to get the motifs, colors, and repeats just right. And I love learning new tools and new techniques.
Where can you be found/what are you doing on your days off?
When I'm not designing, I enjoy Italian cooking, avid reading, Words with Friends, Pilates, and time with my wonderful family.
