Mark Challen talks with H&H executive editor Beth Hitchcock and style editor Michael Penney at the 2011 Interior Design Show about their personal style. Learn about Beth’s sleek and modern condo rental, which she accessorized for a warm, California-style feel. Michael, meanwhile, infused his eclectic style into a 1930s apartment with vintage accessories, wallpaper and bright paint. Get their tips for personalizing a rental by changing up light fixtures, combining mix-and-match furniture and layering patterns — all within a set budget.
