If you're wondering what the key difference is between Mexican and American design, it all comes down to color. And , recently named Mexico's "Designer of the Year," has been on the forefront of embracing such since getting her start almost 20 years ago. "I'm a color disrupter," Hanono tells ED insouciantly. "I don't follow any rules. I hate them actually, so I create my own."
Undoubtedly, it's that daring aesthetic that has paved the way for Hanono's success in the world of interiors. "Every project tells you the real story of the people who live there," Hanono says.
Down to curated cookbooks for an epicure's kitchen or handpicked vintage Baccarat for a Mezcal enthusiast, Hanono has a clear-cut passion for the job—and knack for details. By the same token, she is also the ultimate hostess. "I love to pamper my guests," she says. "I always say that if you’re staying at the presidential suite of any beautiful hotel, your home should be better than that." Now that's something to aspire to.
If you share the same sentiment, you're in luck. Further cementing her star status, Hanono has just launched her first book with Assouline, aptly titled , which catalogues some of her most stunning projects from start to finish. Have a look at some of these dreamy interiors below, and then be sure to scoop up a copy.
