So, it's not so much that I need to be right, as much as I need to clarify the vision. While I was looking for Mr. Britt's beach house night before last (I must get my tear sheets organized!) I ran across this David Hicks layout from House Beautiful, March 1998.
He wanted to make a statement, "Bold, stark, disciplined." I have tried to make that statement on occassion and it often just looks like I don't have any stuff. Cold, bare, boring.
I need a pair of something flanking the bay. I'm not sure it's gilded eagle console tables, but maybe. I dig this room so much I can barely stop looking at in. The purple trips me up a bit, but he is design royalty after all.
