Stan Topol has been in the design business for 30 years, including a stint as design legend Billy Baldwin’s assistant.


This is one of the more live-able rooms I saw at the showcase. Everything was comfortable and personal. I was not surprised to see the Eiffel Tower shout out in the window. That makes three designers who reference Paris, either visually or as an inspiration (Matthew Quinn, even though I didn’t include that quote, and Suzanne Kasler, who name checked both Paris AND the Eiffel Tower.) Will our final designer do the same? (Hint: yes)

Three inspirations from Stan Topol:

My Clients: “I have been and hope to continue sharing a life with smart, witty and adorable people. I love the challenge of where they come from (visually) to where we can go together. They seem to understand my major concern is for their comfort.”

Faith: “I keep working because I believe that one day we will recognize that all interior work does not have to look similar… that all seating doesn’t have to be so low that you need a hand to get out of a chair… that all finishes won’t be the same… and finally, that people will step out of the kitchen and enjoy a great living room designed for conversation.”

Charity: “…We owe a debt to our fellow man and community. Working with and for causes inspires me to be my best and learn to share my gifts with others.”

Note the pictures of (presumably) his dogs and horses. He named them as inspiration as well.

    Just watched an episode of pure design – teenage girls room make over. The designer did a custom headboard…very pretty, although th design is a exact copy of one that is sold by west elm. Dissapointed that somebody would plagerize someone else's design as their own. Come on HGTV this is just plain wrong!!
