This season’s modern decor

The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what's in or what's out. This is not an easy job. Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style.

The goal of a designer is to listen, observe, understand, sympathize, empathize, synthesize, and glean insights that enable him or her to make the invisible visible.

Andrew Grove

Form follows function — that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union. Innovation is often the ability to reach into the past and bring back what is good, what is beautiful, what is useful, what is lasting.

Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style. I always put in one controversial item. It makes people talk. I am going to make everything around me beautiful—that will be my life. Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style. I always put in one controversial item.

Innovation is often the ability to reach into the past and bring back what is good, what is beautiful, what is useful, what is lasting. A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy.

The best rooms have something to say about the people who live in them. There are two things that make a room timeless: a sense of history and a piece of the future. I like an interior that defies labeling. I don’t really want someone to walk into a room and know that I did it.

      As an architect, you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.
