DIVINE DESIGN DESIGN D E L I B E R A T I O N S The moment you knew you were going to be part of the design world. It was inevitable. I could draw at an early age, and I decided that, well, if my father can draw and I can draw, it only seemed right to look up to him as an inspiration for my future in the design world. Design books everyone should have in their library. Neoclassicism in the North: Swedish Furniture and Interiors 1770-1850 by Håkan Groth; Mark Hampton: An American Decorator by Duane Hampton. The first important piece you purchased. Two Aptware urns from A. Smith Antiques on 60th Street. I love them every bit as much today as I did then. You collect. Souvenirs of the Grand Tour, Athenian and Spartan busts and helmets, obelisks, intaglios. Museums you love. Sir John Soane's Museum in London; the Louvre; The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Home scent. Candle: Victoria Cator Cuir Sacré. Personal fragrance. Narciso. Movie you love because of the design elements. Great Expectations, 1940s; Pride and Prejudice with Greer Garson and Laurence Oliver. Farrow & Ball hue that always works. Oval Room Blue. Second home. My parents' home in Southampton. Next for you. I would love to design a hotel, do the White House, design lattes, have a design competition show, etc., etc., etc. SOME OF THE DREAMIEST DESIGNERS AND ARCHITECTS ARE MAKING THEIR WAY ACROSS THE U.S. TO LAND AT TEXAS DESIGN WEEK DALLAS, OCTOBER 30 THROUGH NOVEMBER 3.
