Through the eyes of her Architect father and Interior Designer mother, Emily learned from a very early age to appreciate the organic beauty of texture and surroundings. She is passionate about the origin of aesthetics and the process of compiling elements of a vision that come together to transform a space. At Stonehill Taylor, Emily’s focus is to manage international vendor relations as well as work with each of the design teams to create unique palettes, source FF&E, and locate one-of-a-kind pieces that pull a project together.
During her ten years working at Stonehill Taylor, Tory has lead the design of numerous award winning hospitality projects ranging from boutique to major branded hotels. As one of the public faces of the firm, she has developed close working relationships with an impressive list of international vendors and manufacturers as well as developers and operators. Her love for travel and in particular, exploring international cities, is seen throughout each of her projects with the integration of exceptional details and design narratives.
Stonehill Taylor’s inspiration for the design of this exclusive fabric came after finding some of the firm’s original landscaping stamps from 1967. Prior to the creation of programs like AutoCad and Revit, these to scale stamps were commonly used by architectural firms to ease the drawing process. We wanted to integrate these images as a celebration of the firm’s own history as well as the history of the design industry. The final result is an abstract bird’s-eye-view pattern reminiscent of New York’s Central Park.
