Dear Readers, I greatly appreciate all of you who have written to tell me how much you enjoy The Art of Fine Living. My only purpose in sharing my view of the world is to hopefully add a bit of joy to your lives. Many of you have asked to see more of my design work and so I have decided to post a project each week showcasing one of my favorite projects from my 20 years of practice. I began my design journey in New York, working in a seventh avenue fashion house creating women's eveningwear, but later shifted to interior design and decoration. Still, I have never lost my passion for fashion and was elated when a dear friend invited me to create a room for her that captured the joyful and vivacious colors of Parisian fashion. After looking at her wardrobe, always one of my first steps in a residential project, I realized that pink was a favorite color, and one that looked great with her complexion. Many designers forget that the client should look their best in the spaces we create. This sitting room remains one of my favorites. I love the Robin's Egg blue paired with the hot pink, which was inspired by the Hermes Kelly bag. I also like the sharp contrast of the Wedgewood Basalt Collection. The best reward is when a client tells you they love the space you've created for them. That's how I measure success.
