I like an eclectic mix of periods, of scale, of finishes, and a mix of textures. I think that creates not only beauty but a sense of ease.
— Mark D. Sikes
There are things that just work in design—natural-fiber rugs, striped dhurries, chinoiserie. Beautiful textiles and great texture work no matter if it’s a traditional interior or a clean, minimal space.
I want what I’m doing not only to look good today but also to feel it would have looked good 20 years ago and will look good in 25 years. A sense of timelessness is really important.
I’m happy to be known for blue. There’s something optimistic and all-American about it. And I’ve never, ever had anyone come to me and say they don’t like blue.
I’m a student of what’s come before me for sure… the great rooms and great designers of the past. I find the inspiration but do it in a more modern way.
