Wine lovers call it "terroir." Foodies call it "local color." Mack Richards calls it "sense of place." It's the impact of environment on style and flavor. For more than 15 years, Mack has traveled all over the world as a clothing stylist – working and living in the finest hotels, private residences, ranches, cabins, wineries, chalets, estancias, manors and castles. "You can spend a lifetime studying interior design in books and magazines," Mack says, "but the real knowledge comes from experiencing the flavor of the world firsthand." The feast of color, culture, mood and personality inspired his evolution from clothes styling to home styling.
"The two fields are very similar," Mack says. "A home stylist does for your dwelling what a clothing stylist does for your closet. The idea is to feel perfectly comfortable and always your best – whether it's a new dress shirt for the office or a new design for your living room." The fashion world feeds Mack's knowledge of color, texture and design trends; world travel provides endless cultural inspiration; and his award-winning work underscores his passion and talent.
