Albert Hadley lived a joyful and successful life as an interior designer. Sadly, he passed away today at the age of 91. We will remember him for influencing generations of designers with his classic and chic designs.
"The quality of good design never changes.
However, I think our interpretation changes from one day to the next"

Featured in Architectural Digest, interior designer, Emily Summers, Lance O'Donnell of o2 Architecture and Wayne Carlton Connor & Assoc. have created a white oasis retreat for Summers and her family at the Eldorado Country Club in Indian Wells, California. Paying close attention to detail and space, this restored 1969 home is now a lovely showcase of vintage pieces, playful wallpaper and iconic furniture such as the Warren Platner chair.
The luxurious Warren Platner settee, lounge chair and ottoman are the perfect pieces for this serene living room.
The television above the fireplace is hidden by hand painted wallpaper screens by Porter Teleo.
I have never seen such a unique vintage gondola sofa before, it is truly magnificent!
This light by Jean de Merry is so fun! It reminds me of something in the ocean. The vintage mint Jens Risom chairs is a lovely accent of colour to this glamorous dining room.
This is a cute way to personalize your lampshade. Leave yourself daily reminders and messages.
What you will need: - Lampshade - Paintbrush - Chalk
- Chalkboard paint (purchased at Home Depot for $21.49 for 887ml)
Paint 2-3 layers of chalkboard paint allowing an hour to dry between layers. Wait 3 days for the paint to cure. Gently rub a piece of chalk in its side over the entire surface and then rub off with a dry cloth (this preps the chalkboard surface from permanent chalk and mark damage)
