“I get so much delight out of having two things that would never live together coexist,” says designer Ghislaine Viñas, whose whimsical residential interiors can be found from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. For an imaginary living room, the in-demand talent looked to a painting by Mark Mulroney to sync up with her spirited take on modernism. 

“I love Mark Mulroney’s use of color,” says Viñas. “It’s really bold and I’ve always identified with it because I feel like that’s what my interiors are like in a way.”
