MEET | NOA SANTOS
Featured 9.12-9.18 | By now I've made it pretty clear that I'm a design addict. So you can imagine my obsession with Homepolish, an interior design service that brings customized, accessible, intelligent and beautiful design to people across the country, either in person or via video conferencing. And the size of the job doesn't matter either — they'll accessorize a bookshelf or renovate a castle and everything in between. What you probably can't imagine, though, is my obsession with Noa Santos, the brains (and beauty) behind the business, and one of the coolest designers on the planet. He's from Hawaii, is totally gorgeous, hilarious and so talented it's stupid. He's also designed some of the most incredible spaces for some of the hottest influencers around (he counts Leandra Medine, Whitney Port and Emily Weiss as clients) and does it all with an eye toward to making sure every client feels like a rockstar. He is truly one of the most stylish people we've come across (in fact he was named one of Forbes 30 under 30 for Art + Style this year), and we're thrilled he's sharing some of his secrets with us. Welcome to Noa's Week.
