Paul Vincent Wiseman is highlighted as one of Architectural Digest's top 100 interior designers. “Trying to apply M.B.A.-style business plans to the decorating process is the biggest mistake a client can make,” Paul Vincent Wiseman is quoted in Architectural Digest . “It’s not linear, and it’s very emotional; it doesn’t fit a model!” The native Californian, who cites David Adler, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, John Saladino and Frank Lloyd Wright as muses, has run his own San Francisco-based, 32-person firm for 27 years. Wiseman“s approach is grounded in his belief in the importance of achieving harmony between objects in an interior, regardless of the style.
He recently finished a four-year collaboration with architect Ricardo Legorreta on a residence in Hawaii, and in the past year his projects have taken him from Santa Fe to New York to London. What he’s currently most excited about, however, is a Chinese pagoda-style party space he is working on stateside, which he describes as “a wonderful chinoiserie fantasy.”
