Natasha Baradaran represents a new generation of Los Angeles interior designers that has burst onto the decorating scene with projects that are unexpected, unpretentious – and spiked with originality. Town & Country and W have featured her as a designer to watch.
Born in Beverly Hills, Baradaran spent summers at her family’s second home in Italy, and her travels through the country nurtured her love of the artistic. After working at the luxury interior design firm Wilson & Associates, she founded her own boutique firm in 2000. Her international profile of projects ranges from the construction of a residence in Dubai to the interior design of a contemporary Asian-style estate in Montecito and a traditional family house in Brentwood.
In an effort to give you a sneak peek into the highly anticipated window displays at LEGENDS OF LA CIENEGA 2011: CELEBRATE ART, we asked the Legends designers to share the inspiring thoughts and aesthetics behind their Legends window in the La Cienega Design Quarter. "The Legends Style Sheet" sponsored by Jean de Merry, presents a series of fun and unconventional interviews with our participating window display designers.

Vincent van Gogh
Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th century art for its vivid colors and emotional impact. He suffered from anxiety and increasingly frequent bouts of mental illness throughout his life and died, largely unknown, at the age of 37 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Little appreciated during his lifetime, his fame grew in the years after his death. Today, he is widely regarded as one of history’s greatest painters and an important contributor to the foundations of modern art. Most of his best known works were produced during his last two years of life. He produced more than 2,000 artworks. Today many of his pieces are among the world’s most recognizable and expensive works of art.
