INTERIOR DESIGN: PROjECT.

Mix but never match” could be the design philosophy of Aimee Wertepny, founder of PROjECT. interiors, and her partner Jennifer Lissner Kranitz. Defined on the company
website as the provocateur and the renegade, respectively, the
designers knew they were in for an interesting time when early on
their client, Mimi Napleton Collins, a Chicago homeowner, served
up a lesson on the importance of coordinating your purse with
your shoes. Her admittedly matchy-matchy aesthetic established
a challenging counterpoint for two women who have never met a
design rule they weren’t willing to break.
