The design community has been an important group for Outrageous Rugs. We often work hand in hand with them finding the perfect floor coverings for their projects.
We wanted to shine a spotlight on some of the best and most deserving designers that we’ve had the privilege of working with over the years.
This is our second interview and this time we talk with interior designer Beverly Stadler, President of Design Focus in San Clemente, CA.
Outrageous Rugs: What part of interior design excites you the most?
Beverly Stadler: Planning the interior architecture of the space, and the architectural tile, stone, cabinetry, lighting and other stylistic elements that set the tone for the home interior.
