Decorating & Design - Inside Design
Inside design: J. Alexander Donovan
When it comes to design, this man doesn’t play by the rules.
Bold colours and graphic patterns
Alex uses every possible inch of his 900-square-foot apartment to leave his signature stamp. He doesn’t advocate that everyone use as much colour as he does unless they’re able to balance it through scale and pattern, for example. Here in the den, a large antique armoire tempers the boldness of the pink walls and the blue chaise longues he designed himself, while hits of graphic pattern add a dash of playful interest.
