Focus on Markham Roberts




Markham Roberts is considered to be one of the brightest young decorators in Manhattan, and it is easy to see why. Roberts, who used to worked under design legend Mark Hampton, has been fortunate enough to work on some pretty spectacular residences. What I like about his work is that while his rooms are sophisticated and at times formal, they are always comfortable. While Roberts' "look" is rather traditional, he manages to add fresh, bold touches to his rooms that keep them from looking dowdy. Some rooms are lacquered with rich colors, while others are defined by interesting patterns. Texture is another thing that I always notice about his interiors, such as smooth as glass lacquered walls and floors or sumptuous, tactile fabrics. And there always seems to be an interesting mix of accessories. Here are a few photos of his portfolio, courtesy of his website. Enjoy!

  10. William, I think that's a great point. It's a little reminiscent of Albert Hadley- his rooms can look so varied too! Thanks for the comment.
