On the Couch with Schuyler Samperton
This California designer is a master at mixing patterns and thinks a great set of curtains can make a room.
A Late Start
MyHomeIdeas (MHI): How did you get into design? Who or what influences you?
Schuyler Samperton (SS): I grew up with an architect as a father, and a mother with a great affinity for interior design.
After a fairly long career in entertainment publicity, I started to work for my friend, the designer Michael Smith in 1998. I was a design assistant for Michael until 2003, when I started my company.
