Book Review: Markham Roberts – Decorating the Way I See It

Good Morning Lacquered Lifers! Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday, despite my plans for being organized prior to leaving for Connecticut, I was not, and LL felt the impact …

Fall is that great time of year when all the fabulous new coffee table books are published. This fall has been no exception, and I couldn’t help my excitement when a box arrived from Vendome Press containing Markham RobertsDecorating the Way I see ItMarkham Roberts_cc MR_022-23Decorating the Way I See It is organized into six sections: Floor Plan, Background, Scheme, Furniture, Collecting, Art, & Custom. While someone can simply browse the beautiful interiors contained within the chic python cover (yes, python!), the book also functions extremely well as a guide to decorating.MR_033 MR_068-069One of the most distinctive features of Markham Roberts is that none of his projects are easily identifiable as his. While that may sound like a criticism, it is in fact the opposite. His decorating range, as illustrated by this book, is very broad, and some of my favorite spaces of his (shown here) are completely unrelated. That fact makes Markham RobertsDecorating the Way I See it, one of the more interesting design books that I have seen in a long time. Because his style is so varied, you never tire of picking up the book to flip through it or reference it again. MR_126-7.2 MR_224For a book that deserves a spot at the top of your stack, order Markham Roberts – Decorating the Way I See It. Congratulations Markham!
