style: page marchese norman


My friend Page has the kind of home style that I envy - not only is she amazing at arranging things in an inspiring way, but she sees as much potential for a still life in things that are functional as she does in the totally obscure. I always notice the unusual objects that are featured throughout her house...most of us would never think to hang a skein of wool roving in the living room!


When I asked her how she would describe her style here is what she said:

"Basically I am inspired by things from nature, hand made objects, textiles, organic forms, etc. (fibers, wood, ceramics, linens, muslin, paper, baskets, simple line drawings, glass, etc) the more basic and simple and unfinished, the better.  I don't decorate...rather I just make still lives of things I love.  I love the juxtaposition of old and new, traditional and modern.  I love mixing shades of grey from warm to cool together with muslin-y neutrals.  I also love all these washed out greys and neutrals with a good pop of a neon color, yellow, tomato red, black or silver."
