In my ever reaching search for inspiration on all creative levels, I have come to rely on Pinterest more and more. The notion of discovering and sharing what others are posting to their boards has brought me a vast visual library from which I can take stimulus – from interiors to fashion, from design to nature – it’s endless and therein lies the real excitement.
Where else can you subscribe to such a bounty of images, many of which have links for easy reference. I remember growing up with my set of encyclopedias which were always referred to. Now I have only to type in a phrase or word and have the universe open up to me.
Soho Residence by Andy Goldsborough Interior Design
I can think of very few modernist interior designers who have as an encyclopedic knowledge of the 20th century’s decorative arts as Andy Goldsborough. We met last year at an industry event, and as I investigated his work I became fascinated by his incredibly restrained and sophisticated rooms.
He’s well known for shepherding his client’s toward purchasing furnishings that will stand the test of time and appreciate in value – a concept ever more foreign in our increasingly disposable culture. I asked him to meet me for lunch to talk with me about his career trajectory, his unique design aesthetic, and the projects he’s currently working on. What follows is an excerpt of my conversation with this transplanted Southern gentleman.
