Markham Roberts: Decorating The Way I See It



Markham Roberts: Decorating The Way I See It
Published by The Vendome Press
Forward by Senga Mortimer



Interior Designer Markham Roberts


You will find this book to be an amazing showcase of Robert's body of work. He brings a fresh perspective to every room, whether it be very traditional or more contemporary in style. I was thrilled to see entire chapters devoted to both collecting and to art. Enjoy!



One of a pair of vibrant green velvet Chippendale settees graces the corner of this living room in a Locust Valley home.


The living room walls in this New York townhouse are upholstered in a rich blue velvet. The Victorian crystal and glass girandole is stunning!



The upholstered sleigh bed is just one of the many details making this Master Suite unique and fresh. The lighting is another!

A living room filled with many periods of furnishings and art in this New York pied-a'-terre!

Markham luxuriates in designing little jewel box-like powder rooms for his clients! You will see many fine examples in his book.
The Greek and Roman Galleries at The Metropolitan Museum inspired the vaulted, coffered ceiling of this two-story stair hall in this Carnegie Hill triplex.

One of the very best books of the season, you will want to add this to your library to enjoy year after year! Please purchase at Amazon or your local book seller.


Thank you to The Vendome Press for this fine publicity copy.

Much thanks to my Friends and Followers who support The Arts!

I look forwrd to reading this book and luxuriating in the photos. And I especially like Markham Roberts' reputation as a designer who takes his clients' own tastes into consideration. No wonder he's successful!

GORGEOUS décor, Karena! That last photo of the Greek/Roman style archway....that is OUR shower style! I can never however, get a great photo of that space because of the tight space of the bathroom.

Those blue walls as well are so refreshing and elegant. You've got style! And thank you sweet friend, for visiting. I am SO glad to know you have a new hip and may you only have health and freedom from pain. HAPPY DAY!
