The Talented Ms. Robin Sillau

Robin Sillau is a young designer living in Brooklyn. Born and raised in New York City, she graduated from the University of Maryland with a BA in print journalism, unsure of how to combine her two passions- interior design and writing- into a career. Her questions were answered quickly when just two months after graduating for college she landed a job at Domino Magazine. At Domino, she cultivated her design skills and decided to switch gears and focus entirely on becoming an interior designer. While at Domino, she conceptualized and executed the design of two bedrooms, a living room and a dining room. She also assisted in the design of countless other rooms which were all shot and published in the magazine. After two years at Domino, she decided to leave the world of publishing and pursue design full-time.
Her greatest strengths lie in utilizing space, furniture layout, and finding unique and inexpensive sources for fabric, furniture, and accessories. She's heavily inspired by Miles Redd, David Hicks, Nina Campbell and Ruthie Sommers. She loves blending textures and patterns, and believes that a comfortable and beautiful home is essential to a well-rounded life, and that this can be achieved on any budget.
