St. Louis has its share of top-notch interior design talent, but it still is fairly rare that their work finds its way onto the pages of national publications. That’s why the showcase of interior designer Joy Tribout’s work in the July 2012 issue of Traditional Home is particularly noteworthy. It features the room that Tribout and daughter/design partner Tammy Caruso designed for the Traditional Home 2011 Bridgehampton Showhouse, which was chaired by designers Alexa Hampton and Mario Buatta. When all was said and done, the Tribout-designed room stood out as one of the very best—if not the best—in a very large house featuring the work of some great new design talent, as well as well-known names.

Going forward, Tribout will also curate a Tastemaker Tag sale on One Kings, the designer-oriented home furnishings fl ash-sale site (so-called because of the limited time span, usually 72 hours) that is rapidly growing in popularity and influence among design aficionados. Tribout’s sale starts Aug. 7. We’re told it will feature her favorite things, including vintage Chanel, a mink coat and equestrian accents. Congratulations Joy and Tammy, and thanks for turning the spotlight on St. Louis in such a positive fashion.
