In their first book, Stamps & Stamps share their passion for historical reference and attention to detail, demonstrating their artistry in creating timeless environments of thoughtful style, comfort and harmony. These interiors will inspire you to create your own personal sanctuary by finding the spirit of the place, layering pattern and texture, treasures and family heirlooms to fashion lovely and singular rooms, meant for real living, not just for show.
With a focus on Southern California, where they are based, Stamps & Stamps specialize in designing, decorating, and reviving historic homes and gardens. From a restored Andalusian riad in Los Angeles to a Neoclassical Grande Dame in Hancock Park, to their own compound and garden in South Pasadena designed around a Greene and Greene carriage house, Stamps & Stamps have built their style on an creative foundation rooted in the past but with a lightness and wit that’s very much of the present.
With its beautiful photography and helpful sourcing–an appendix details where to find antiques, fabrics, textiles and specialist books–Stamps & Stamps is sure to influence you to embrace interior design that is timeless, civilized and intensely livable.
