As I sit on my sofa feeding my eyes toxic reality TV content, it’s a sure-fire bet I’m simultaneously googling the ages of the people I’m watching. Once I realize the person I’m vetting has achieved success at a younger age than myself, it makes me wanna set the TV on fire or punch myself in the face—well, most of the time, that is. If said person is insanely talented or skilled and seems deserving of success, I give them my blessing and become a perma-fan. Two perfect examples: Niki Papadopoulos and Nick Olsen.
Recently, another twenty-something, force-to-be-reckoned-with made the list: LA-based interior designer Kyle Schuneman. I was first introduced the up-and-coming gentleman’s work through House Beautiful’s Next Wave List. A googlefest just moments later resulted in some serious retina therapy as my eyes absolutely fell in love, image after image, of Kyle’s brilliant body of work.
From his use of color and meticulous editing to his layering of pattern and fresh prop-styling, take a look at someone I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of in the years to come. If he’s churning out spaces this jaw-dropping at 25, can you imagine what we’ll see from him at 35? Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the stunning work of Kyle Schuneman as photographed by Joe Schmelzer.
