Decorating is not about making stage sets, it's not about making pretty pictures for the magazines; it's really about creating a quality of life, a beauty that nourishes the soul.
Albert Hadley

I love the bright colors that Albert Hadley uses. They act like punctuation marks. In the top left photo there is a hint of a bright orange door reflected in the mirror above the canary yellow sofa and a red zig-zag table. A constant that seems to be in all these photos is the use of black to ground everything. I think every room should have a touch of black. He also uses the most interesting shapes in furnishings and accessories, which seem to stand out all the more when they are juxtaposed with the bright colors and black.
