Point Of View: Anthony Baratta

on the importance of remaining true to your vision

CJ Dellatore Anthony Baratta

“For me, decorating is all about control.  I envision a room complete – and leave little to chance.  I know that popular thinking has moved in a more ‘thrown together’ direction, yet this has had little effect on how I set about putting a project together. 
 My rooms always start with a bold yet balanced use of color, a furniture plan that’s all about comfort, a repetition of a continuing theme, a kind of over exaggerated sense of scale, and a unsubtle play on patterns. 
 I have respect for tradition and rules, yet when tradition means the past I become less interested.  I like the Dalai Lama’s quote: ‘Know the rules well so you can break them effectively.’  This is especially true in decorating.”
