Scott Sanders: The New Traditionalist

The fresh American style of Scott Sanders's interiors—firmly rooted in tradition, yet always presenting an inviting, easygoing vibe—make them not just places to be looked at, but places to be lived in. "I design rooms that can really be used, where nothing is off limits," he says. Comfort is key, he notes, but so are durable finishes and fabrics that encourage people to kick back.

"With a second or third home, people are much more open and willing to have a little fun and be more experimental" with color, pattern, and showpiece objects, says Sanders of the beach houses and waterfront getaways he designs for clients in Florida, the Hamptons, and the Caribbean.. "That's one of the reasons I love designing coastal homes so much—they're places where a touch of humor or whimsy is welcome." —T.M.
