This spring, we are proud to unveil an exciting new collaboration between Rowe & Robin Bruce and some of today’s influential voices in design. My Rowe Design showcases a hand-selected group of interior designers and challenges them to create a space that highlights their favorite aspects of the Rowe & Robin Bruce lines. Whether it’s the ease of customization, diversity of fabrics, quality or overall versatility, each of them had something to share about why they love working with Rowe. We can’t wait to introduce you to our My Rowe Designers, and to give you a sneak peek of their unique vision and style!
Sita Montgomery is a Salt Lake City, Utah-based interior designer known for fresh color choices and an expert’s touch at mixing pattern and texture. “It has always been difficult for me to put a label on my design style,” says Sita, “but I do feel that my designs are all threaded with a bit of femininity.” Her approach includes drawing design inspiration from her surroundings–whether in nature, examining architecture or viewing a piece of art–she believes design inspiration always stems from a variety of sources. Just as we do with each Rowe and Robin Bruce design, Sita prides herself on balancing beauty with function, creating spaces that are current and on-trend but also truly timeless.

Why She Loves Rowe
“As a designer, the ability to customize pieces to a specific design project cannot be understated. Each of the Rowe and Robin Bruce pieces I selected can be transformed to work with a variety of design styles.”
Rachel Shingleton is an Oklahoma City-based color-loving designer, interior stylist and storyteller. Originally launched as a graphic design studio in 2005, Pencil Shavings Studio has expanded to encompass Rachel’s bright, fresh approach to interior design, as well as a daily blog and more. “Colorful and happy are probably the first two words that come to mind,” says Rachel of her design style, “but I’m definitely also all about mixing up casual, approachable style with a dash of glam.” When it comes to design, Rachel says, “I need it to be functional and beautiful. But no matter what, it’s got to be colorful.” This form-meets-function philosophy makes Rachel a perfect pick to showcase the innovative style and practical construction of Rowe and Robin Bruce!

Their ideal look combines a fresh approach to interiors with a deep-rooted interest in the traditional, along with overtones of Palm Beach style. “We find design inspiration almost everywhere,” says the design duo, “most especially in vintage & antique furniture, fabrics, wallpapers & fashion.” The Parker Kennedy team often starts with a traditional interior and updates it with lacquer finishes, mixed textures and vintage details all in a youthful palette–a signature style they have termed “Preppy on the Edge.” This commitment to classic design with contemporary flourishes makes our partnership with Parker Kennedy a natural fit.
