How much of interior design informs the way that you dress and vice versa?

For last year’s Museum of Fine Arts summer party that I cochaired, I wore a custom blazer in a gold and ivory fabric. I’m now upholstering a massive door with that exact same fabric. If that’s not an expression of personal style in home decor, I don’t know what is. I like blurring all of that together.

When you’re out and you see someone dressed spectacularly, do you try to think of a way to translate that into home decor?

My mind is going 100 miles a minute. I’ll see a beautiful ruffled blouse in a window at Anne Fontaine and think, OK, that could work on a bed skirt. That could work on fabulous window treatments.

Do you look at what your clients are wearing and try to adapt that to their interior?

First and foremost, I listen to what they tell me, and I draw out of them their personal style. Of course the way that they dress is part of that, but I can’t leave it as superficial as that. — Christopher Muther
