Our second book review and give away is the outstanding decorative coffee table book on the life's work of renown designer Markham Roberts
This is a book to read and re-read as his richly textured designs reveal their individual nuances. This is easily my favorite design book in years!
Mr. Roberts crafted the book as a design process, layer by layer revealing the basics; floor plan, furniture layout, color palette, textile selections, with the incorporation of objects and art.
The book next leads the reader through a discussion on architecture, landscaping and gardens, showing the importance of the interrelationship between the interiors and the exterior. A man and principal I strongly eschew.
Finally he pulls all the pieces together using his own country house in the Hudson Valley
So here I am in Atlanta with 2 weeks of shopping ahead of me and Day 1 was a winner. Seems as though my focus is natural wood, well for today it was.
As a collection they make quite the statement, happily!
Often times you will see these trunks balancing on three legs. What to do when a leg breaks? GENIUS! But that is Lisa for you
A brilliant vignette, don't you think?!
The first two items already have a home with two interior clients but my trailer remains very empty
