Interior design professional’s source of inspiration

Point Of View: Matthew Patrick Smyth

on the pitfalls of following trends

MPS POV…………………………

“…never invest in a trend.  If a new fashion should emerge that you just can’t resist, go with it –  but be prepared to change out whatever you buy soon thereafter.  What’s in tends to be out just as fast.  If that all-the-rage piece or that must-have look isn’t banished when its fifteen minutes of fame are up, the home and everyone in it will look sadly out of date.”

“I like all the chairs to talk to one another and to the sofas and not those parlor-car arrangements that create two Siberias.”
