Originally called International Working Women’s Day, it traditionally celebrates women’s achievements in politics, the workplace, and society. This day is celebrated on March 8 every year and has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world, when the radical ideologies started to rise.

We believe that women should be celebrated every single day, but today, more than ever! So, we decided to left you some of the most admiring women in the interior design world, that inspire us every single day with their unique creations and achievements.

Take a look, get inspired and left us some comments:

Victoria Hagan

Crisply elegant and cheerfully modern, Hagan’s interiors are characterized by a strong sense of proportion and adroit combinations of materials and textures set against a warm neutral palette. The interior designer worked with Botticelli & Pohl Architects to create a Nantucket summer home.

Jan Showers

Showers has earned a loyal following for imbuing her spaces with comfort and personality, favoring modernism that never feels sparse or cold. In this suburban Phoenix home, Showers and architect Marwan Al-Sayed created a desert oasis with warm woods, supple leather, and no shortage of design details.

Emily Summers

Known for creating crisp, elegantly restrained contemporary rooms that still have a warm soulfulness, Summers is a master at softening modernism’s hard edges with sumptuously. At the designer’s Indian Wells, California, retreat, a Neal Small mirror glints above a Karl Springer sideboard in the dining room.

The Madrid-based designer endeavors to create “magical homes that are sensitive to the architecture and faithful to their place.” The designer’s own Madrid home is a warm tapestry of textures, from the carved fireplace to the built-in bookshelves and gray stone floors; even the omnipresent Eames lounge looks refreshingly relaxed in the space.

Jennifer Post

Post’s sparely furnished modernist interiors—inclsparselyomes for Jennifer Lopez and Simon Cowell—are still marked by spectacular expanses of white, but dashes of brilliant color and dark contrasts increasingly infiltrate the pristine palette that has been the New York designer’s calling card for more than two decades. Post designed this Manhattan apartment, where a vintage Stilnovo light fixture from John Salibello Antiques hangs in the living room.

Kelly Wearstler

Author, blogger, outré fashion plate, branding virtuoso, and decorator and muse of the Viceroy and Tides hotels—Wearstler cuts a profile as colorful as those of her clients, much like Gwen Stefani. Working with M. Brian Tichenor of Tichenor & Thorp Architects, Wearstler created a bold new look for a family’s 1930s Bel Air, California, residence. The pool pavilion’s spiky brass light fixture was custom made; the herringbone-pattern floor is stained walnut.

Rose Uniacke

“A room is not a museum of furniture,” says designer Uniacke. “It should feel welcoming and human, calm and contemplative.” Indeed, if there’s one thing her projects have in common, it’s that they all have an unmistakable soul. In the London townhouse of screenwriter Peter Morgan, Uniacke covered the light wood floors with a cowhide to add warmth and incorporated a variety of furniture styles for both visual interest and comfort.

Suzanne Kasler

Long the go-to decorator for traditional interiors that don’t skimp on comfort, Kasler has lent her expert eye to everything from furniture, to textiles, to lighting, establishing a catalog of sources that incorporate her attention to detail, texture, and history. Subdued colors, custom curtains, and a crystal chandelier emphasize the magnificent windows in this Georgia home of Kasler’s design.

Penny Drue Baird

An impassioned Francophile, Manhattan-based designer Baird’s style typically incorporates bold architectural gestures, sumptuous upholstery, and graceful European antiques. On the right photo, we can see the living room of Nina Bauer and Andrew Shapiro’s New York apartment, which was renovated by architect David Ruff of Design Laboratories and decorated by Baird.international women's day International Women's Day 2017: Let's Celebrate Women's Achievements! banner suspension dl

Known for her sophisticated, inviting takes on minimalism, New York–based Selldorf has long established herself as one of the art world’s go-to architects, having designed homes for top collectors and gallerists—as well as countless exhibition spaces worldwide. Selldorf masterminded a gut renovation of Anne-Gaëlle and Christophe Van de Weghe’s townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
