DECOR: Innovative Prop Styling

May 15, 2002, 12:00 AM EDT

Daphne Shirley makes things look good. The professional stylist and creative strategist is a younger, less fussy, and hipper Martha Stewart with her arty, stylish takes on everything from gift wrapping to visual displays for clients like L'Oreal, CBS and Daniel Boulud. For Italian jeweler Chimento's launch party, Shirley filled glass vases with gold and silver cake decorations to compliment the texture of Chimento's Ofidio collection (shown here), and she used clear Plexiglas display pieces instead of the usual felt-covered jewelry stands to show off both sides of Chimento's reversible bracelets. At Diffa's Dining by Design event, her Valentine's Day-themed table for Red Envelope had stationary so guests could write love letters. You can watch Shirley work her prop styling magic on the Today show on May 20. --Suzanne Ito
