One of my favorite design websites is for designer Kerry Joyce, one of the greats of interior design. Kerry Joyce creates a wonderful line of furnishings for Dessin Fournir.
Check out the porfolio on Kerry Joyce's web site - http://www.kerryjoyce.com/main.htm. My favorite rooms are the ones that are done in creams, punctuated with dark, rich wood furniture. Truly beautiful.
I recently found a wonderful interview with Kerry Joyce on the HGTV web site. Here is the link to the interview: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/pac_ctnt_988/text/0,,HGTV_22056_34183,00.html
There were a few quotes that I found particularly interesting:
Another new trend that should be avoided is the '60s-retro-ugly-is-beautiful look. This may work for fashion (which is temporary fleeting), but if you dress your home that way your investment may be poorly spent. You may find yourself purchasing a new set of furniture in the near future. (Kerry Joyce)
I use color as if a painter. When I conceptualize my interior design I see each room as a blank canvas, and I am not the interior designer but the artist. When you break down the elements of a fine painting—or of a successful room-they are very much the same. (Kerry Joyce)
