SOPHIE SAYS ZEN IS IN Serenity by Design
After weeks of being sequestered in their residences—no matter how lovely they might be— many people crave a sanctuary for the soul. Recently, society’s primary contact with the outside world comes from negative news reports because “when it bleeds, it leads” in media ratings. Haute Living hopes to reverse this trend by providing tips on how to gently update your home into an oasis of calm and comfort. We’ve enlisted Sophie Azouaou to guide us on this transformational journey. Lauded by Forbes magazine as an “interior design guru,” Azouaou has been on the front line of helping others and at the forefront of stylish interior design for more than 20 years. As founder and president of SophiSticate Interiors, she combines her passion for philanthropy with her design expertise to make a difference one pro bono project at a time. “When you put your time and energy into developing something positive for others and give them the foundation for a brighter future, that is philanthropy,” says Azouaou.
