Designer Advice

12 years ago

I've been reading the HOUSE BEAUTIFUL website today, and ran across this quote from designer Peter Frank.

Tell me what YOU think about it, and I'll throw in MY 2 cents a little later.

"I find rules and guidelines are for the faint-of-heart and basically worthless. When I read lists of "Always do this" and "Never do that," they never make much sense to me. A very good decorator told me that all four legs of a piece of furniture must always sit within an area rug. That's absolutely right, except when it's absolutely wrong. I have both situations in my house, and both are correct."

---Peter Frank in an interview
