Gates Interior Design robert leleux

A few weeks ago I teamed up with Reed Public Relations to help cover the Antiques and Garden show here in Nashville. Not only was I given the opportunity to peruse the floor to view over 150 vendors, but I was also given the chance to interview Robert Leleux. 

Robert has worked as an editor for Lonny Magazine, Domino magazine and is also the founder of the famed Southern Style Now Festival & Showhouse taking place in Savannah, Georgia this fall. Additionally, he has a new book of the same name, Southern Style Now: Bold Interiors from the New South, forthcoming this year. The book explores regional design and features the work of talented newcomers considered by Robert to be the “class acts of Southern design.” 

I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect but I knew I wanted to get his take on interior design and Feng Shui, and what it means to really cultivate style at home. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Robert was poised, well-spoken and delightful to speak to. Plus his take on how to build a true sanctuary at home is worth the price of listening. Enjoy!
