Normally, I avoid posting commentary on magazine spreads, but I can't pass up showing off my talented friends. Get the full story in the December / January 2012 House Beautiful.
This is the kind of design that I want to be doing. I think people have forgotten in the rush for "the look for less" and budget cutting that you can never achieve this quality of design on a small budget. The patina of quality antiques and the luster of handpainted wallpaper will never be matched by Restoration Hardware and a gallon of paint. Fabrics that are $20/yard are not equal to fabrics that are $200/yard. Not everyone can afford this quality of design and great design can be done on a limited budget, if you are open to spending money on things that matter.
