Tell me about yourself and why you started Stanton Interiors:
Margaux, owner and interior designer at Stanton Interiors, developed her passion for design from her parents' love and appreciation for all things beautiful - art, fashion pieces, architecture, decor, cobbled streets, how a chef plated a dish, the shape of a faucet, everything and anything! As she began designing her own spaces and eventually homes, she was able to refine her appreciation for turning spaces into works of art. She began working with friends and family to help design and style their homes and the enjoyment of watching others fall back in love with their homes inspired the start of Stanton Interiors. Stanton Interiors was founded on the belief that everyone deserves a space that they’re excited to come home to every day – a space that is not only beautiful and comfortable, but also functional and personal to them.
What cross-cultural work inspires you most/why are you passionate about cross-cultural decor and connection?
Having grown up in Hong Kong, a place of many international influences, Margaux has always appreciated learning about and experiencing cultures of both my own heritage and those of others. Being abroad meant she was lucky to be able to travel often. While food is a known favorite of Margaux's to experience and explore, the colors, traditions, languages and way of life of other cultures plays a large role in the textiles, shapes and designs she uses in her work. Margaux finds that by bringing cross-cultural influences into a space, it can help create a unique style that acknowledges history and focuses on classic looks over fleeting trends.
How would you describe the importance of space/decor/style in making a space feel welcoming to all?
When you walk into a room and you feel drawn to relax on the couch with a warm tea, or enter a kitchen and picture yourself chopping vegetables and herbs to create a delicious dish - this is our goal. We believe that the design and decor of a space affects your mood and can even make some of your day-to-day tasks such as folding clothes enjoyable and relaxing.
