Charlotte Moss Decorates


What can one say about Charlotte Moss’ newest book, Charlotte Moss Decorates? To start with, the oeuvre is stunningly beautiful and filled with historical references that compliment the design concepts perfectly. More than that Moss offers a wealth of ideas that are easily implemented into even the most modest budget with her multiple Why Not… lists throughout the book. From cover to cover its a fantastic look into Moss’ methodology of designing beautiful livable rooms with no detail overlooked. It’s really one of the rare design books that leaves one wanting it never to end.

This is an example of one of the collage boards Charlotte uses to create her spaces. This one was for the Kips Bay Show House Bedroom she did in 2009.

One of my favorite detail shots from the book. The play of the reds and ivories is poetic.

Of course my favorite photo is of the room Charlotte did using my Beekman fabric in a my custom color. It was not only a terrific honor to have her use my fabric, but a lot of fun to work with her to achieve “her” color.

Opening night at Kips Bay with Charlotte. It was one of the best nights I ever had. Seeing my fabric in the finished room was really amazing!
