SAH: What piece does every living room need?
BB The one you’re sitting on! That is my favourite chair; I call it the Bracelet Chair. It’s in my bedroom in silver leaf and in my guest bedroom in ivory. It’s a little bit of sculpture in a room.
SAH: And it makes those sitting in it feel so delightfully petite….
BB See? Proportion!
SAH: When should you splurge and when should you save when decorating your home?
BB If you spend your dollars right and you buy better, it means you’re going to buy less. A lot of people say they’re going to buy less expensive furniture because they have children and they’ll just have to redo it in 10 years, but I was raised with some of the same furniture I inherited and, because it was well made, adding a slipcover makes it new again. You know how it is when you buy a really beautiful purse or watch and, even though it cost you everything, you get a certain feeling every time you engage with it.
