Experience In The Spotlight
Airbnb partnered with interior designer Orlando Soria on an exclusive Arts Experience in Los Angeles, where guests got crafty, creating clay tabletop sculptures, while learning about modern art over wine and snacks. Here, Orlando shares his favorite LA destinations.
INTERIOR DESIGNER, ARTIST and author Orlando Soria says that a career in design found him, not the other way around. “I have literally been painting rooms and choosing furniture since I was seven, but I never really knew it was the right path for me until I lucked into an amazing TV job,” says the founder of lifestyle site Hommemaker, who got his break on HGTV’s “Secrets from a Stylist”. The LA native has MFAs in design and painting, and his affinity for DIY craft is evident in his work. “I love that my education prepared me to show people how they can make their own beautiful things for their homes,” he says. “I want to create spaces that look like they’ve been curated over time by the homeowners themselves.” Soria’s new book Get It Together! is a self-deprecating take on interior design that’s as entertaining as it is informative.
