Two factors help influence my decorating choices- age and edge, and thank goodness for them! It’s not uncommon for interior designers to bring the most serious, the most formal touch to a home where each piece is perfect yet somehow rooms lack personality and spontaneity.
In addition to touches of home humor, consider rock art for an otherwise very traditional setup. These photographers, like Danny Clinch, are the absolute best in the business (with a price tag that reflects it), and their work adds the attitude to inspire the entire room.
