From the finest showrooms in Paris to hidden gems on eBay, interior designer Kishani Perera relies on a multitude of sources to create beautiful spaces that look as if they had evolved over decades. She has a knack for blending the reclaimed with the refined, cultivating homes that are simultaneously chic and livable. Her latest venture, a boutique called Rummage, showcases her edgy aesthetic and passion for vintage. Last year she released her first book, Vintage Remix: The Interiors of Kishani Perera.
