The last of my four part design legends series is highlighting the one and only Sister Parish.
Sister Parish is known for her legendary American look and LOVE of color and home.
” In good decorating, innovation is often the ability to reach into the past and bring back what is good, what is useful and what is lasting.”
” As a child, I discovered the happy feelings that familiar things can bring- an old apple tree, a favorite garden, the smell of a fresh clipped hedge, simply knowing that when you round the corner, nothing will be changed, nothing will be gone.”
“Some think a decorator should change a house. I try to give permanence to a house, to bring out the experiences, the memories, the feelings that make it a home.”
My love of old homes and all of their special quirks makes me truly identify with Sister. Growing up in a home that had many special gardens, that was full of the scent of my mother’s of roses and her Chanel No 5 while telling the story of my life in every room was incredible. This sincere feeling drives me to create the same for my clients and my family. There is no place like home!
I think I have a new design crush…
