Meg Braff: The Pattern Whisperer

Braff has transformed homes from Bermuda to the Hamptons—and her line of wallpaper and fabrics with a vintage resort vibe breathes new life into timeless midcentury patterns in beach house-friendly colorways like pink, aqua, green, and beige.

Braff's flair for pattern extends off the wall, as she boldly dresses interiors with motifs that call to their surroundings—vintage-chic dining chairs adorned with palm trees in Florida, or sofas swathed in island fauna in a Jamaica living room.

"I try to space out the color and the pattern and give each room a little breathing space," she says of her method of mixing varying scales to create a breezy beach vibe or a more buttoned-up oceanfront aesthetic. "What's really important is creating circulation between the inside and outside—easy indoor-outdoor living." —Brooke Showell
