Anthony Baratta and William Diamond, the duo behind Diamond Baratta Design, have been designing together for over twenty five years, and the two have a signature style that is distinct and "highly personal, functional and original." Their rooms are unabashedly loud, and everything is larger- and brighter- than life, making frequent use of oversized patterns and accessories (such as pendant lights), in combination with bold, in-your-face colors.
Diamond and Baratta have designed several traditional and classic rooms, that feature more demure patterns and colors, but the designs that really showcase their personality utilize the bright colors, like robin's egg blue, citrus orange, and grassy green, and exciting patterns that they are known for. The duo have "brought 20th century Modernism into the 21st century, making it more stylish, sumptuous and sleek," creating rooms that are, if nothing else, unforgettable.
Diamond and Baratta both have backgrounds in art (Diamond in painting and Baratta in art history), which gives way to their frequent use of paintings and sculptures as inspirations for their designs. This artistic background has lead them to design a wide variety of rooms- the duo has designed everything from a beach house dining room, to a traditional living room, to (as displayed on the homepage of their website) the interior of an airplane. Clearly, they're not afraid to branch out, and perhaps this is the very reason for their success: they've designed everything from"playful beach houses to (relatively) restrained modern apartments," and are well-respected in the design world. Over 100 magazine articles have been written about Diamond and Baratta (over 40 being cover stories), in publications ranging from The New York Times to Architectural Digest, World of Interiors, House Beautiful, House & Garden, and Traditional Home. They have also designed products (such as carpets/rugs,which are produced by Stark Carpets; fabrics, produced by Lee Joffa company;and wallpapers), written a book (Diamond Baratta Design), and were named a Top 100 Designer by Architectural Digest and a Design Icon by Traditional Home, among other industry honors.
