Calling their work "imaginative, intelligent, and inspiring" Architectural Digest recently came out with their list of AD100: The Top Talents in Architecture and Interior Design. Many on it are the usual suspects that do consistently great work, but some you may not know as well.
Margaret Russel has injected a much-needed breath of fresh air, and talent into the list. By highlighting design standouts, many of the designers listed here will experience an uptick in new client calls, and hopefully, a full, rich career ahead. All designers work incredibly hard, and it is great to see the addition of talent that opens the door for an entirely new generation that is well on their way. It's always nice to be acknowledged. So, who do you think should be on next year's list?

Here are some additions I was pleased to see:

Los Angeles-based Alexandra and Michael Misczynski, the married due of Atelier AM create understated, stylish homes

Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, another husband and wife team, of New York's Carrier and Company. They create fresh interiors that mix rustic and fine antiques with visually appealing unique fabrics

LA's lifestyle maven and shop owner, Kelly Wearstler

Madeline Stuart, the LA-based furniture and interior designer who fuses modern style and traditional beauty

Fantastical, glamorous color-filled interiors define Miles Redd's interiors

New York-based internationally inspired Muriel Brandolini, a genius at eclectic, European-tinged, art-filled playful interiors

Classic yet constantly inventive Brit designer Nicky Haslam/NH Interiors, who injects personality into everything he does

Bold interiors give Richard Mishaan's layered spaces a well deserved spot on the list

Mix masters Robin Standefer and husband Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams of NYC are hot hot hot and love to pair brass and wood

Stephen Gambrel of NYC has a chic take on comfort, with crisp lines and pops of unexpected colors

Atlanta's Suzanne Kasler, who can do inviting luxe cabins and grand country homes with equal warmth
and sophistication

Suzanne Rheinstein, the reigning classicist of LA and owner of iconic LA antique-filled shop, Hollyhock
