Nicole Fuller Designs a Room Around an Alexander Yulish Artwork
Galerie asked the colorful designer to create an interior based on an favorite work by her artist husband
With her layered and innovative style, Nicole Fuller—the daughter of an artist (as well as the wife of one)—is known for her confident use of color and sculptural furniture. That’s why every room she conjures becomes a unique masterpiece.
“Being an interior designer and art adviser, I often design around an artwork and continue its story throughout the space,” says Fuller. “Together but Apart by my husband, painter Alexander Yulish, is romantic and beautiful—perfect for a bedroom. He’s a color master and often inspires the palettes I create. We actually met when I started buying his art for my clients. I was drawn to his pieces before I ever knew he would be my friend, partner, and husband.”
