Tara Benet Designs, The Independent

The Independent caught up with interior designer Tara Benet to get her tips for bringing the holiday spirit to luxury interiors. Benet, whose background as a painter gives her interiors a dreamy, modernist quality, recommends bright red accents as a simple and effective way of instilling a space with holiday cheer, whether that means a red pillowcase on a throw or some art books with vivid red covers. By creating neutral interiors with hits of color, Benet designs homes that can be easily transitioned between seasonal schemes while capturing and reflecting natural light to make even the smallest room feel large.
