When the opportunity to work with Hompepolish came up, I knew straightaway I wanted Roth as our designer. We’ve featured a few of her projects on MyDomaine—you should see her modern NYC loft—and her style fits our aesthetic seamlessly but also offers a unique perspective that I knew would challenge ours. The only issue is I was based in L.A., and she was based in NY. Homepolish shared a few other local designers with me, but I just didn’t feel the same connection.
So we reached out to Roth to see if she could design the space with me remotely, and thankfully, the distance wasn’t a deterrent for her at all. We kept in constant communication throughout the entire process, hopping on regular calls to go through the plan and the pieces I’d ordered. Then Roth flew out here the week of the photo shoot to put on the finishing touches.
After being through this lengthy process firsthand, I can’t stress enough how important it is to work with someone who gets you, your vision, and your aesthetic because when you do, they can work with you from anywhere to create interior magic. Don’t compromise. It’s just not worth it, and you’ll end up with a place that doesn’t feel like home.
Roth agreed. “The right designer and client fit are so important,” she stresses. “It’s the most personal relationship, and you need to make sure that you aren’t paired with someone who will pull you in any direction that you don’t feel is authentically you. It’s not the result that’s important to me but the process of how we got there. Both I and my clients learn a lot throughout the process. My takeaway from this particular project was that this is a very special family, and it’s so important to collect things over time. I always knew that to be true, but I was strongly reminded of it with Sacha and Troy.”
