You might call us slightly crazy if you knew how many IG posts of the multi-hyphenate interior designer/architect/designer extraordinaire Kara Mann we had saved on our phones.

Her extensive roster of clients includes Virgil Abloh and Goop, and she’s even designed a home where an Alexander McQueen dress inspired each room—these projects only scratching the surface of her extensive résumé. All of this is *exactly* why we tapped Mann for her current shopping list. Below, a whole lot of inspiration.
