Kathryn M. Ireland: The GlobetrotterThe breezy interiors created by England-born, Los Angeles-based interior designer Kathryn M. Ireland reflect the international influences of a cultured world traveler. The core of her aesthetic is "California coastal meets English country," says Ireland, but don't be surprised to also find elements from countries such as Morocco, India, and Mexico mixed in.
A star of the Bravo TV series Million Dollar Decorators, Ireland also runs a successful fabric and wallpaper business, with collections that reflect her personal travels and her take on traditional batiks, ikats, and other textiles.
But no matter the country, Ireland always feels at home at water's edge. "I grew up on the beach in Scotland, so I have a huge affinity for the sea and windswept places," she says. —Tim McKeough
