Decorating Tips From Albert Hadley

A visitor to designer Albert Hadley‘s old farmhouse in the 1980’s asks what set of rules, if any, did he decorate by? Here was his reply-


“Well…I respect enormously the time and place of any architecture, and how one furnishes it depends on what it says.”


“Also, there’s a continuity to one’s taste. If you really like things they all tend to be of the same spirit and they all work together.”


“If you don’t know right away that something is something you want or can use, you shouldn’t buy it.”
