Leyla Jaworski is more than an award-winning interior designer. She’s a style whisperer able to transform your living space into a jewel box beyond imagination. She describes her aesthetic as “bright, clean and eclectic.” We prefer to think of her talents as alchemy, with her ability to infuse rooms with elegance, function, energy and light. We recently caught up with this interiors expert to ask her a few questions and gain insight into the woman bringing magic to the world of design.
Do you have a design mantra?
I’m not sure if it’s a mantra per se, but it really is our philosophy: Your home is your story; tell it accurately. Don’t spend more than you are comfortable spending. Take your time. Step out of your comfort zone. Break rules.
Why are you such a fan of the Delta brand?
The design, the innovative technology. It offers the perfect combination of things we need in products for our clients.
What are your favorite rooms to design?
Kitchens, hands down. There are so many endless options, configurations, styles—it’s just endless.
What is your favorite style of home?
I personally lean more modern, MCM [midcentury modern] especially, but I really do like a mix of styles. Our firm, as a whole, is very eclectic.
What is the most important thing you can do to make your home a showpiece?
Inject your personality! Make it yours … A home needs to have soul. I tell my clients that no matter what they think their style is, they need some unexpected moments. You don’t want your home to feel like a design showroom.
