Top Designer Sara Touijer Shares Her Creative Process

For the ASPIRE DESIGN AND HOME Spring issue, designer Sara Touijer articulated what goes into her creative process.

“To define my design style is like asking me which one of my kids I like best! I like classic styles that withstand the test of time mixed with the freshness of contemporary pieces. I’m a lover of all design styles, but if I had to define my style it would be a combination of transitional, traditional and eclectic. I’m drawn to this combination of design styles because it has a flexibility to it. There is a curated freshness when mixing these styles. It feels pulled together without being pretentious. Layered without being overwhelming and cluttered. My life is similar to my designs. I try to keep everything in perspective and not sweat the small stuff or get overwhelmed with insignificant details. I enjoy being able to guide my clients to their own personal aesthetic.”
