At home in Brooklyn with Fawn Galli

Take a deep love of nature, mix a healthy dose of disco and fashion and add a passionate bunch of luxuries and you have Fawn Galli cocktail design. It’s unpredictable, witty, and whimsical as she likes it, and so are her clients who appreciate her ability to spot their deepest design desires even if they don’t know what they are. Join us for a behind-the-scenes visit with a designer at her eclectic townhouse in Brooklyn, where her fearless approach to design proves that everything works in “the surreal spark of (her) conflicting worlds”.

Growing up in the wilds of Northern California (first a houseboat and then a cabin in the woods), Fawn developed “a deep sensitivity to space and the environment and the idea that a home could be a magical place.”

Through the prism of layered textiles and furniture and a dizzying combination of high and low, Fawn has an unusual ability to create a dazzling vision and make it all look effortless.
