Atmosphere or Object?

In talking about how to create a stylish home environment that is suitable for the way families live today, noted interior designer Jeffrey Bilhuber says that interiors are not about the objects, but the overall success of the atmosphere as a whole.

Bilhuber says he does not tell his clients what to buy;  he gives them choices and helps them make decisions to develop their own distinctive home.  His philosophy is illustrated with photos of a dozen homes whose interiors he has guided from his latest book, THE WAY HOME: REFLECTIONS ON AMERICAN BEAUTY.

Mid-Southerners are in for a rare treat on Friday morning, November 9, 2012, when Jeffrey Bilhuber presents a talk, "The Way Home:  Atmosphere or Object," at Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.  Although the luncheon presentation is sold out, there are still tickets available for the 10:30 am talk in the museum auditorium with a book sale and signing.  For more information, see the website of Decorative Arts Trust.

    1. Helen, I hope you'll bring a group another time, see the Brooks Museum, and the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, too.

  2. Agreed, but beautiful objects and items never hurt ;-)

    1. Stefan, but beautiful objects look all the better if the whole decor is "pulled together," I'm sure you'll agree. And most people find that to be the difficult part, with room after room, carrying through with a theme or point of view.
