Talking Trade Secrets with L.A. Designer Schuyler Samperton

I first got to know LA-based designer Schuyler Samperton back in 2003, when I was Style Editor at House Beautiful when she, along with partner Anna Hackathorn, was part of Samperton Hackathorn and she was named one of America's Top Young Designers that year. When we discovered Trinity College in Hartford Connecticut was our alma mater, we took a nostalgic walk down memory lane remembering our favorite art history professors and the great energy of the place. She has since gone on her own, and defined her casual yet pulled together signature style that resonates so well with the LA lifestyle. I recently caught up with Samperton, and asked her, among other things, what she learned from current White House designer Michael S. Smith, her first design boss. Read on to get to know how the daughter of an architect achieves her elegant West Coast livable, layered look.
