Tom Scheerer – An American Decorator with Practicality and Dimore Studio

Last week’s New York Times’ T Magazine (Women’s Fall Fashion  issue) was a definite eye candy.  So many fun and exciting things to look at and try out.  But the thing that really got me were the two features on interiors — Tom Scheerer and Dimore Studio.   Tom Scheerer, often compared to great American interior designers like Billy Baldwin and Allbert Hadley, has a book coming out on decorating this Fall.  Here are some of the things that he mentions in the article that sticks with me:

  1. Elegance is economy.  It is not about buying what is the most extravagant and luxurious.  It is about buying what makes sense.
  2. Don’t build so big.  So true especially in these days of McMansions. Enough said.
  3. Don’t mistake complication for quality.
  4. Don’t try so hard.  Another one that is so right on the money.  To me, this also means not to mimic other people’s style.  Decorate authentically.

Dimore Studio, a design firm owned by Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci in Milan, has a very different design aesthetic. Their aesthetic is modern with historical influences and dramatically beautiful yet muted shades. I would love to have walls and color combinations like theirs.
