The Select Guest
MEET | RINAT LAVI
Featured 2.27-3.5 | February seems to have turned into badass babe month here at The Select 7, so it felt right to end the month (and start a new one) with yet another amazing, strong, talented and gorgeous woman. Born in Israel, Rinat Lavi moved to the US to get her BFA in interior design, and she's taken her talent and run with it. Her interiors are eclectic, mixing high and low to create spaces that are at once luxe and edgy, serene and energizing. Her selects run the gamut, too, and I'm sure you'll love them as much as we do.
Welcome to Rinat's week.
