I’ve just wrapped up four days at High Point Market. It’s one of the interiors industry’s biggest trade shows of the year! I always come away from it full of excitement for the new trends and design finds I’ve spotted. Plus, of course, I also leave feeling grateful for the relationships I’ve fostered with friends and colleagues, old and new! The whole experience gets me so inspired about this stylish little corner of the world I inhabit, and about the people in it! And one of them I’m especially gung-ho about lately is Colin King, an interiors stylist based in New York. His portfolio and Instagram feed are packed with minimalist decor ideas that I can’t wait to put my own spin on!
Colin’s range of experience includes everything from styling for big brands such as Home Depot, Restoration Hardware, and One Kings Lane. He’s also contributed to the signature elevated aesthetic of niche brands like Eyeswoon, Consort Home, and TRNK. And his projects have appeared everywhere from Vogue to Dwell to Domino! A scroll through Colin’s Instagram feed is an education in sophisticated restraint.
As apparent from these images, Colin takes a less-is-more approach when choosing accents for a room. A single book and a candle on a coffee table. A slim lamp and a glass bud vase on a nightstand. A wrinkled robe dangling next to an oversized urn. When each piece is chosen for a striking silhouette and luminous texture, there’s no need to go overboard with knickknacks and tchotchkes. Colin’s style feels especially right for the post-Marie Kondo world we’re living in. His every design choice sparks absolute joy in this old heart of mine!
