Paula Smail spent her childhoodin a house on Henry Road in South Africa. Since then, she has traveled extensively and includes London, Paris and New York in the long list of places she has lived.
Currently based in Los Angeles, her design aesthetic of bold color is influenced by Marimekko blinds in the house on Henry Road, women wrapped in swathes of stunning African cloth and the work of artists like Rothko and many of his contemporaries. A self-taught designer, her professional life includes au pairing, crewing on a yacht, and being a corporate executive. Paula’s style is a happy, eclectic mix of color, eras and ethnicities fueled by a life spent rearranging furniture, scouring flea markets all over the world and reading piles of design magazines.
The Henry Road collection includes textile based home and personal goods designed by Paula and made in Los Angeles, California USA.
