Tyler Meyerkorth grew up in a rural town just outside of Kansas City, Missouri. Although much of his youth was spent between the farm and the city, an intense interest in design found him heading to California after high school. Currently working toward a degree in Interior Design at The Art Institute of Los Angeles, Tyler also spends his time as a Home Stylist at west elm Santa Monica. When Tyler settled down into his own place in late 2015, he knew that it needed to be a reflection of his personal style and design sensibilities.
“I knew our store could provide the perfect pieces to create the modern yet comfortable feel that I desired,” Tyler says. “Using a few decorative accessories (and a ton of pillows!), I was able to achieve an overall monochromatic color scheme with a few fun pops of yellow for visual interest. Through this experience, I’ve learned it’s much easier to design for a client than myself! Regardless, the end result is what motivates me to move forward within my career.” Check out Tyler’s home below!
