// I came across these recent photographs of Ryan Korban & Julia Stegner while browsing the net, trying to escape for a brief second, from my madness of a Monday. If I where of the male chromosome... and an interior designer... I would want to be Ryan Korban. No one arrays taxidermy, stuffed exotic birds and albino peacocks in interior spaces better than he can. It has been interesting for me to see his signature style become more defined since I began following him in 2009. And he even looks more refined these days-- the black blazer (see pics 1 and 2) really adds a sense of maturity of sorts to his ever so usual over-worn plain t-shirt attire.
"His approach and mantra is simple: he toys with the idea that our living space can be exact and polished - while still comfortable and supremely livable. With a spectacular captivating eye, Korban is one of the most meticulous self-made and untrained stylists today, ensuring that the spaces he defines are both attractive and inspirational. His technique is to incorporate something unbelievably ornate, rich, or brazen and strip these unique pieces of all its aforementioned connotations. The result is something that has come to define the Ryan Korban style."- Ryan Korban in The Coveteur
.... oh, and he's only 26!
