ROBIN COLTON STUDIO
Somewhere along the way of a successful career in fashion design—one that landed her in the costume shop of The Young and The Restless, with the Seattle Orchestra, and even as a lead designer for Nordstrom’s own private label—Robin Colton felt a shift in her focus. “I always felt a pull toward interior design. The idea of taking my fashion knowledge and sensibility and working directly with people one-on-one to improve their lives resonated with me,” Colton says. Her studio celebrated three years in November 2014. Ten years well into the design game, Colton is still constantly inspired by her clients’ unique wants and needs for a space. One of Colton’s long-standing clients will showcase their home in the upcoming tour, a shining display of the designer’s talent and capacity to hone in on personal tastes. “This client loves lighting,” Colton explains, “so each space is defined by a unique fixture from a brilliant green wood sculptural chandelier to an aged wine barrel chandelier to an Ingo Maurer fixture with real feather wings that are clipped to each bulb.” Once a fashionista, always a fashionista. Robin Colton says she still finds personal inspiration from following up-and-coming fashion designers every season.
