“Some­thing fun­da­men­tally good and de­cent nat­u­rally evolves from an en­vi­ron­ment where men and women are on a more equal foot­ing. I mean, isn’t that a lovely thought?” kelly be­hun

best known as the head of New York’s highly sought-after de­sign firm, Kelly Be­hun Stu­dio.

After stints in fash­ion, mu­sic and even fi­nance, Kelly Be­hun fi­nally de­cided to ded­i­cate her­self to an al­to­gether dif­fer­ent pas­sion, de­sign. And, wow, did she make an im­pact. Her style — a gen­tle, soft sort of beauty dis­persed with play­ful el­e­ments (pink flamin­gos, empty space mas­querad­ing as clouds) — trans­forms cold New York apart­ments into warm, wel­com­ing spa­ces. “To be able to cre­ate a beau­ti­ful home for some­one is a great priv­i­lege,” she says. Al­though she’d like to see more women in this and ev­ery in­dus­try, she says she feels sup­ported — “and that may be due in part to the fact that we are work­ing within a frame­work of greater gen­der par­ity, more so than many other fields. Some­thing fun­da­men­tally good and de­cent nat­u­rally evolves from an en­vi­ron­ment where men and women are on a more equal foot­ing. I mean, isn’t that a lovely thought?”
