You know how a great DJ makes a party? How it's not just about one or two good songs but rather it's the mix, the flow, the way the tracks comes one after another after another until there's no choice but to get out of your seat and hit the dance floor? Well, interiors are the same way. A stellar piece—a to-die-for lamp, a custom sofa—can't shine if everything else in the room falls flat.
The tricky part is mastering the mix. Two who get it right every time are Brian of Brian Paquette Interiors in Seattle and Kelly of High Street Market in Philidelphia. Their style defies definition. It has gender neutral appeal, incorporates both old and new, layers tones and textures with aplomb...in other words, I want Brian and Kelly to make all my decorating decisions henceforth. I wonder if they offer portable purse-size versions of themselves for flea market trips...?
