Design Star: Lexington’s Isabel Ladd makes House Beautiful’s Rising Talent List
Lexington designer Isabel Ladd was included in House Beautiful’s “Class of 2022,” describing her as “the ultimate maximalist.”
A relative newcomer by Lexington standards, she founded Isabel Ladd Interiors in 2015.
The magazine’s annual list profiles designers with “signature styles… newly appointed to our annual list of rising industry talents [who] are about to be the next big thing. You heard it here first.”
Well, technically, not “first.”

Ladd describes making House Beautiful’s list as “one of the most epic pinch me moments of my life. A bazillion THANK YOUs to House Beautiful, a magazine I’ve coveted since I was a pre-teen.”
