Canadian Design Legend Ray Staples

VIA

I stumbled upon the most fabulous room on Pinterest and started researching to find the designer behind it.  I was a tad surprised to find out it was designed over 30 years ago by Ray Staples.  Ray was apparently a firecracker of an interior design from Canada. After reading all about her I think we would have been fast friends had our paths crossed. She had gumption galore. She died at 100 years young this summer. Please read all about her from Style at Home. They did the most wonderful piece on her.
