Decorating: The Way I See It with Markham Roberts

Event Details:

Friday, September 18, 2015


Start Time: 6:00 pm - End Time: 8:00 pm

$20.00

Event Description:

Speaker: Markham Roberts, Markham Roberts Interior Design, New York, NY 

 

Markham will take the audience step-by-step through his design process, structuring his discussion as he would a design project, beginning with the basic interiorMarkham Roberts elements—floor plan and furniture layout, color palette and fabric schemes—before working his way up to furniture selection and incorporation of objects and art. Markham will also discuss architecture, gardens, and their importance to the integrated final result.

In vast New York City apartments, historic estates on Long Island, ocean-side Florida mansions, stately Southern and Mid-Western houses, rustic Montana ski retreats, and modern Puget Sound compounds, the audience will see his diversity and sophistication as a decorator exhibited through an array of distinct examples of his work. Finally, Markham will put all of the pieces together, using his own country house, a nineteenth century gentleman’s farm in the Hudson Valley, as example.

Markham Roberts, a New York based interior designer, has been called “a master of timeless American style” by Vogue. Known for his ability to work in any design vernacular, Markham brings a modern approach to classic design. Using an inventive combination of layered pattern and color, as well as a bold juxtaposition of fine furniture and works of art from around the world, his interiors have been described as “the very definition of chic.” Markham Roberts and his work have been published in Architectural Digest, Domino, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, Southern Accents, Town & Country and The New York Times. He has been named to the AD100.

Mr. Robert's book, Decorating: The Way I See It will be available for purchase and signing.

Born and educated in London, England her career has been pursued in Europe and New York.
