Meg Braff’s The Decorated Home…

PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUALITY IN DESIGN IS THE ABILITY TO FOLLOW ONE’S INSTINCTS. Meg Braff followed hers, first by starting her now well-established firm twenty years ago, then opening a design store in Locust Valley, next acquiring the Philip Graf wallpaper archives and making them her own, and finally writing this, her first book. I am honored to have written the foreword for the book, The Decorated Home.

“MEG IS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO IMMEDIATELY ADDS A SENSE OF GAIETY TO A ROOM.  Her spaces are filled with bold patterns, bright happy colors, and a sense of celebration. There is uniqueness to her process that draws from her ebullient personality.”

“THIS ENTHUSIASM IS CONTAGIOUS AND EVIDENCES ITSELF IN HER JOYOUS COLOR SCHEMES AND FRESH, CLEAN SPIN ON CLASSIC DESIGN THAT RESULTS IN HOMES THAT ARE WELL-LIVED IN AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED. Meg’s optimism, confidence, and commitment to her own aesthetic are her greatest strengths.”

“CREATING BEAUTIFUL ROOMS FOR MEG IS ABOUT FINDING THE UNIQUE AND THE UNPREDICTABLE AND HER ATTITUDE TOWARD THE HUNT ENERGIZES HER CLIENTS AS MUCH AS THEIR INTERIORS.

Like the cocktail party in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, with its pop-pop fizz-fizz Henry Mancini score, Meg’s effervescence is evidenced in her rooms, and in this book. Beautifully photographed and crisply written with the sound advice of a pro, The Decorated Home: Living with Style and Joy will excite you, inspire you, and guide you in your journey to a beautiful, happy home.”
