Designer GenesI was so glad R-Home gave me the chance to be the “Last Word” in their newly redesigned March/April issue (which is beautiful by the way!). I shared an essay about my grandmother and all the decorating advice she’s passed down to her children and grandchildren over the years.

In art school, a decorator named Amy Barth told my grandmother that every room should have at least one ugly thing in it. She took that advice to heart, and to this day, it’s why my grandmother loves a rag rug in the kitchen, why her daughters’ living rooms boast 1970s-era rattan plant stands and why my sisters will never part with their This End Up sofas.
