HouseBeautiful, Randall sits down with Barbara King for the mag's "I Love My Bed" series. There, she talks about her surprisingly serene, neutral-covered
bedroom sanctuary and using wallpaper as an accent, along with a few other interior-design predilections. The most interesting nugget that proves this mother of three has a heart of gold? She turned her big, walk-in closet into a bedroom for her son — now that's sacrifice, especially for a designer! Check out our favorite quotes from the CFDA-winning designer in this exclusive sneak peek.
Barbara King: "Did you run out of closet space?"
Jessie Randall: "My big, beautiful walk-in closet did get turned into a room for my third son — I have 6-year-old twins and a 2-year-old. I just have one tiny closet now, so I only keep about 10 or 15 pairs of shoes in there. I switch them out every three months or so, once I get a new batch from my latest collection."
BK: "Did you also run out of wallpaper?"
JR: "That was intentional!
I have wallpaper in every room, but I like to use it in a modern way, as an accent."
JR: "My husband has a rule that all the bedding and towels have to be white. He’s very particular. He always starts out against every idea I have — like this wallpaper — and then he ends up liking it."
