When the Sanctuary Collection was first created 10 years ago, it was with the mission to help women create a place of refuge and romance, serenity and style — yes, a sanctuary — within their homes.
Now the groundbreaking collection is being expanded with 100 new pieces that “allow you to put together your own look and give it your own personal style to tell your story,” said designer & creator Tracey Gibson.
“Sanctuary is like a woman’s little black dress that she can dress up or down with accessories and make it her own,” Gibson said. “It’s the finishes and textures, details and materials you chose that allow you to tell your own story.”
The bedroom, dining room, living room and home office furniture pieces are grouped into three unique personas, each of which are designed to embody the influences of a well-traveled woman who curates a collection of home furnishings in travels across the globe.
The pieces are opulent, yet approachable; vintage, yet modern; timeless yet fresh. “Sanctuary gives you a casual lifestyle that’s still glamorous through a magical bit of distressed finishes,” said Gibson.
Gibson notes that Sanctuary most emulates Parisian interiors. “Parisian interiors have always stood the test of time by merging Old World elegance, vintage details and modern pieces,” she said. “Mixing classical with modern creates a timeless look when curated over years with the patina of a little wear and tear. The charm creates a look that doesn’t feel too perfect and exudes casualized glamour.”
Gibson’s “muse” in designing Sanctuary, a collection that celebrates feminine drama, was the late Hollywood starlet Audrey Hepburn, the epitome of approachable refinement and class.
Fittingly, one of Hepburn’s most famous sayings was:
“Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself, inside and out.”
