The former home editor at Vogue is a rising star in the interiors world!
During Virginia Tupker’s six-year tenure as home editor at Vogue, a coworker, the shoe designer Tabitha Simmons, turned to her in a moment of desperation: Her house was empty, and she needed help. “It was a big job, but I said yes!” Tupker recalls. “And things took off from there.” Soon she left the magazine to start designing full-time, appointing a string of homes for a new generation of tastemakers. She decorated a bohemian barn in Southampton in less than a month for Moda Operandi cofounder Lauren Santo Domingo and dressed a dapper Upper East Side apartment for fashion writer Derek Blasberg (AD, March 2019). “It’s very word-of-mouth,” says the designer of her practice. But the projects keep rolling in, from a gut reno on the Upper East Side to an Airstream in the country decked out like a gipsy caravan. “Many of my clients have a very distinct personal style,” she explains. “My job is to guide it.”
