I’m not sure how I missed this. A couple of weeks ago the New York Social Diary interviewed Thomas Britt. I don’t know if you ever read the Social Diary; I’m sure I got started after being referred by another blogger. They profile interior designers about twice a month. The funny thing is, their interviews always sound a bit Sasha Baron Cohenesque.
A tented room always appeals – as does the snappy black and white stripped ribbon trim.
The blue satin upholstery reminds me of the Paley’s brown satin in their drawing room by Parish Hadley.
These birds, I love.
This room was inspired by the Royal Pavilion at Brighton; it feels like one of the ivory pagodas all grown up.
Parchment covers most of the books. Quite charming to own a set of Encyclopedia Britannica.
Nervous throughout much of the interview, he’s particularly concerned that the photographer will go upstairs. Not allowed. Too much of a mess.
This is my kind of guy.
