I want my life, right now, to be the best style and the best place for me to live. I don’t want to wish for something that is not here. I want to enjoy and live with the fantastic artistry of the present. The cocktail parties of the sixties were stylish and elegant, but having my friends over for drinks after work is more fun and loud laughter is very much appreciated.
Our ability to create and see color is more advanced than it has ever been. We are more capable of building the most interesting and fantastic objects that humans have ever manufactured. For these things I am grateful. I want my home to be a reflection of what is beautiful to me and to my family. I do not want my home to reflect another time in history, or another moment in style.
We are living in a wonderful time that is just as good and just as significant as any other time in history. We move forward, we make progress, we gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom. We cannot call our time a renaissance, but our time will yield results as beautiful, meaningful and important to us all.
So, for afternoons full of wonder and excitement, I look to what is available to see and touch in this world right now…
