“I find that my designs begin with being inspired by the space,” Scott comments on the conception of his interiors. “It might be the architecture, the scale, or the client’s intended use that lays the groundwork for the overall concept.” Scott’s stylistic progression with this space is the archetype of the “New American Style” of which he has established. Blending traditional motifs with contemporary fashion, Scott’s iconic trend promotes the casual luxury that accompanies personally tailored interiors for his clients.


“I work with my office to then find an object, photo, fabric, color, or even a piece of furniture that then sets the tone for the entire project. For example, in this project, I was inspired by the room’s connection to the exterior of the home and immediately knew that the room needed to be bright and cheerful.”

Double 2 Desk

With plentiful sunlight and light colors, this airy, impeccably complemented room takes on a life of its own. It is playful, authentic, and original in its ambition.

Double 3 Detail

Accessories and artwork are important aspects in the building of Scott’s spaces. Distinct embellishments add additional charisma that further express the client’s persona. In this particular room the discrepancy between artwork and furniture is indistinct, as seen in the central coffee table.

Main Room

“The beautiful area rug from Sacco Carpet inspired the overall look of the room—the colors, the fabrics, and the furnishings all fell into place after that.”

Double 1

Strong use of color rhyming and design repetition lends the room a natural fluency and helps create a characteristic identity. “Gold and bronze highlights complement the yellow, and the glass accessories in sea palette bring radiance to the room.”
