transformation? “To me everything comes down to a strong edit and excellent tailoring,” he reveals. “You can pull together a collection of individually beautiful items, but if they don’t complement each other or aren’t the right scale, something will feel off. Accepting that something just doesn’t work, no matter how much you love it, is required for a successful outcome,” he explains. But whether considering color, carpeting or couches, how does one know if something is work- ing? “I’m big on trusting my instincts,” says Rak. “Sometimes it’s difficult to articulate why I think something will or won’t work.” But establishing a good relationship with homeowners helps them
understand when it’s time to go with Rak’s gut. “Good clients are great about trusting that feeling, and they get the best results.” Rak says he is “so happy” with the finished results of the overall project and that the outcome very much resonates with his personal aesthetic. “It’s sharp, sophisticated and entirely tailored— with a bit of levity sprinkled throughout the house to ensure we’re not taking ourselves too seriously,” he explains. “The client is thrilled with the results. It’s a space that feels reflective of themselves, and I think they’re proud to call it home.” See more of this designer’s work by visiting online at danrakdesign.com. ■
