Rita Konig has been in the business of home decor for over 15 years, so she knows a thing or two about decking out a home in fab style. She shares her knowledge of interior design through publications like House & Garden and T Magazine. When it comes to crafting a space, her philosophy is all about comfort, as well as style. “It’s about how you feel in the room,” she says, “not just how it looks.”
Richard McGeehan specializes in 19th- and 20th-century decorative arts, and his historic home renovations are truly stunning.

Peter Dunham splits his time between restoring landmarked houses, running a fabric and wallpaper collection, and curating handcrafted furniture for his store, Hollywood at Home. Basically, he’s a design wizard that specializes in drool-worthy prints and the best of furniture.
Thad Hayes is a former-landscape-architect-turned-home-decor-guru. His style is part minimalist, part classic contemporary — an aesthetic he describes as the perfect blend of “complete without being full.”
