20 questions with kimberley seldon

At styleathome.com, you'll find lots of advice from your favourite designers, who offer up tips and tricks to help you make your own home look like it's jumped straight out of the pages of a magazine. We love the designers we work with and always want to know more, more, more! So I decided to check in with Kimberley Seldon, Style at Home's Contributing Decorating Editor, to get a more personal glimpse into her sense of style. (Check out more designer profiles here.) 1 If you could shadow any designer for a day, who would it be? I'd shadow myself...but I could never keep up. 2 Where do you look for an obscure source of inspiration? Travel is the ultimate source of inspiration. Obscure inspiration comes during dental surgery. 3 Favourite restaurant? Giorgio's in Santa Monica. Boulevard Cafe in Toronto. 4 What’s your favourite room to decorate?
