Quintessence Blog's Stacey Bewkes

Stacey Bewkes, author of Quintessence blog, at the Brunschwig & Fils showroom in London.
It was an honor and delight to be nominated by Stacey Bewkes, author of Quintessence blog, for Traditional Home’s 10 New Trad DesignersQuintessence is one of my favorite blogs so it was fun to finally meet Stacey when she wrote about the Rooms With A View showcase in Southport, Connecticut last fall.
Quintessence covers interior design, architecture, fashion, books, food and wine, travel, and more.  Stacey's well researched articles, original photography and background in the arts have made Quintessence a trusted source for all things chic.  Stacey's long standing interest in architecture began with an Art History major at Brown.  She was an art director at Simon & Schuster in Manhattan for seventeen years before moving to Connecticut with her husband and four children. She remains, in her words, a “design and style addict”.  Stacey says she loves to “read, research, write, and be inspired every day by people and their creativity”.  Dominique Browning called Quintessence one of her favorite combinations of brains and beauty.  It is visually appealing and intellectually rich, a testament to her motto “Living Well with Style and Substance”.

Stacey also writes a style column for Women’s Voices for Change, has been creative director for several web sites and was an inaugural member of the BlogTour team at the London Design Festival. 

Stacey and I both love classic modern style and great design in all aspects of life.  I’m grateful for her confidence in me and proud to be featured alongside her in the May issue of Traditional Home.
