why i love ruthie sommers
Not only is she an incredibly talented designer, she also sounds like like an awfully down-to-earth kind of girl. Like this quote, from her profile on 1stdibs: "Sommers practices her mother's daily mantras, which range from modesty (especially when it comes to showing designer labels), to writing thank-you notes and being mindful of the environment. 'I re-use everything I can,' says Sommers. 'That's why I adore antiques--plus, they're green!'"
