“Neue Drawing Room” in the 2nd Floor Living Room by Bennett Leifer Interiors

“I love to reference history and different design elements in the spaces I create. I recently visited the Neues Palais in Potsdam and was inspired by how dramatically the spaces evolved over time, with so many events transpiring over the 20th century. The space retains its elegance but bears a mark of each period that passed through.”

INSPIRATION: “Day of Pink is the International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia, Transphobia, and Transmisogyny. It is a day of awareness, action, and celebration of diversity. Day of Pink also celebrates the Redefinition of Pink. Its inception was Canadian high school kids defending a gay classmate being bullied for wearing a Pink shirt. In fashion and in popular culture, Pink has evolved, from prim and proper to Powerful and Political.”
