“Mean people are no fun.” – Thom Filicia

It seems like everytime I write about an interior designer I’m saying, oh they are my favorite, and Thom Filicia is no exception. He is on my list of people I’d love to meet!

(House Beautiful)

Raised in Syracuse, New York, Filicia attended Syracuse University’s Art and Design school in the college of Visual and Performing Arts. He attended the university, studying for a B.A. in interior design, from spring 1990 until spring 1993, and left two science credits short of graduating.

Filicia has an apartment in Manhattan and a lake house in Skaneateles, New York. (JEALOUS!) You should check out his book Style to see more of his amazing spaces!

In his final year of college Filicia did an internship with the design firm Parish Hadley, then worked for Robert Metzger Interiors and Jeffrey Bilhuber before opening his own interior design company, Thom Filicia Inc., in 1998.

He describes his decorating style as modern classicism.

Filicia gained great exposure when he became the interior design expert on the TV reality show Queer Eye in 2003. (LOVE THAT SHOW!)
