Curating vibrant, art-centric homes, this Luxe Next In Design 99 honoree prides herself in crafting careful juxtapositions, like the pairing of period antiques with modern pieces, while authentically representing her clients. Here, the Ericka Catanzaro Interior Design principal dishes on her approach and style.

Design ethos? Quality over quantity is big for us. We would prefer to see a client create their home in phases and invest in key pieces rather than buy mediocre furnishings just to fill the space.

Top shopping spot? Well Made Home. From their custom tailored lampshades in unique block prints with brightly contrasting trims to their hand-painted dinnerware, everything is so pretty.

Go-to color? Farrow & Ball’s Skimming Stone.

Whether leaning into a harmonious, monochromatic palette or a colorful one, the Lauren Evans Interiors principal loves to layer on pattern, texture, interesting silhouettes and a touch of whimsy. Read on for an inside look at the Luxe Next In Design 99 talent’s aesthetic.

One item every home needs? Millwork—adding architectural elements automatically elevates a space.

Favorite local store? Anthem is the luxury home goods and specialty gift store everyone needs in their hood! It’s my go-to for hostess or birthday gifts, sofa inspiration or those homestretch styling needs.

Design rule to live by? Every room needs a statement piece. Even if it’s small, there should be something unique.
