Oscar Buzz for Decorist Elite Designer Blye Faust
We’ve always known that all of our designers here at Decorist are talented, but recently, we got a sampling of just how multi-faceted our team can be.
Blye Faust is one of our most-requested Elite Designers at Decorist. Her room designs often sell out months in advance (in fact she currently has a wait list) and garner rave reviews from our clients. But, before starting her incredibly successful career as an interior designer she worked as a film producer.

Her latest movie, Spotlight, which opened November 6, and stars a cast of actors we’d happily give up our left arms to meet: Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Stanley Tucci, Liev Schreiber and Michael Keaton.
The film is centered around a story Blye and her producing partner Nicole Rocklin, felt they had to tell: the Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation of the Catholic Church’s sex-abuse scandal in 2002. "For some stories, you have to change details to make them work for movies," Blye told "But the way this incident played out, it was like a three-act play. We didn't have to alter the details at all."
The film debuted at a number of festivals over the last few months, where it was called “the best movie this year” by critics at Newsweek, and “one of the year’s best films” by the New York Post. Recently it won best feature and best screenplay at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. And rumor has it Spotlight may even get an oscar nomination.
To say we’re proud to have Blye on our team is a total understatement. Support this talented woman and her amazing work, and check out Spotlight this weekend!
