From the Designer (Sponsored)
Kay Genua grabs inspiration wherever she finds it interesting ironwork on the streets of New York, historical architecture in European hotels, and eclectic decor throughout Louisiana. "I always soak in my surroundings" Genua says. "I study my clients and their lifestyle, then tailor a personal look." Genua enjoys projects of all sizes and loves the clients-turned-friends aspect of her nearly three decades as a designer. She's a believer in dressing up and down, whether it's today's outfit or a room, and is drawn to out-of-the-ordinary pieces with attitude. "I always incorporate something unique, a special find or something I've created," she says. "I call it a piece of jewelry for the room. A mixture of high-end and more affordable pieces keeps my clients surrounded by beauty and comfort."
