Point Of View: Mark Cutler

on interior design as a family portrait

CJ Dellatore Mark Cutler

“My philosophy is that design is a form of portraiture; every project that we do is a pure reflection of the families for whom we design.  With this in mind, I place great importance on a special, well-curated entryway.  I like to treat this part of the house as the ‘greeting card’ for the home, as it’s the first thing you see when you enter a house – and the last area you pass as you leave.

The entryway pictured above was designed for a young, well-traveled family who happen to have an extensive art collection.  I tried to create a room that was timeless, yet familiar.  Combining those two sentiments, as well as pairing new pieces with antique objects, gave the space an organic quality.  It’s always been important to me that my designs feel light and effortless, which in turn reflects the real personalities of the home: the people who live in it.”
