If These Walls Could Talk

Ryan Korban

Ryan Korban a twenty-something NY based interior designer, who’s clients include Jessica Stam, James Franco, Zoe Kravitz and his latest addition Alexander Wang’s new NY flagship boutique arrived from Philadelphia nine years ago with his mind set on joining the ranks of the fashion industry’s elite. Korban once said he was “drawn to all the ways the fashion world felt young, relevant and sexy,” He continued to say “Then I realized my love for it had nothing to do with the actual construction of clothing.”
Instead he started to fantasize about all the interiors he saw around him, he took a leap of faith and is now one of the most sought after interior designers! Korban is said to be one of the most meticulous self-made, untrained designers around.
His concept is simple. Your space should represent you, create your space how you would dress!
Mix texture, color and utilize your best feature. He shares his idea that our living space can be exact and polished, while still comfortable, realistic and livable. That’s the essence of his approach.

Put It on the Glass

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

This is my example of a work of art… The Glass Pavilion - Santa Barbara, Ca.
Architect Steve Herman calls her his “greatest achievement!” The breathtaking 14,000 sqft beauty is modernism at it’s finest. The five bedroom five and a half bath home is set within a 3.5 acre Montecito oak grove. The house, wrapped in glass and space so generous that it comes complete with a 32 car garage with walnut lined walls and art gallery! The combination of architecture, style and extreme detail in quality make it a home without compare! The Glass Pavilion is now up for sale for a mere thirty five million… Who wants to buy momma a home??? :)
