Beige is Magic - Albert Hadley

"Beige is atmosphere. It's bisque, it's ivory, it's cream, it's stone, it's toast, it's cappuccino. It's, well, it's magic." Albert Hadley

  1. Great Post! And I love the format...how did you do that?

    Beige IS magic...and like white, I beleive takes some texture to make it work (visual or tactile).

    I forgot how much I loved Andrea Puttman...great images, I'll be saving them in the reference file!

  2. Dear Patricia,
    how necessary aren't the shades of beige for the interior décor....I also often find many tones of grey easy to add as well.

    Thank for your sweet comment, I might turn up one day even if it will take a while before so.

    All the best,
    Ingela

  4. Albert Hadley was the inspiration for my first house. From the book Parrish Hadley, there is a photo of a living room with Baker chaises, African art and black wood floors. I totally pilfered the whole look. I even bought the last two Baker chaises that were available before they were discontinued. I covered them in Kravet Linen Velvet in Beige, of course. I have never gotten tired of them, although now that I live on the border, my house is much much more colorful...but those chaises are still the same! He was such a talent!

  9. Cara Patricia,
    Refreshing! Lovely post. Beige and earthern colours - outstanding! May I pick a choice? The labrador and the checked beige/black carpet. Do you know the carpet's origin? I am looking for a carpet EXACTELY that pattern! What a coincidence! Bacione, Ingrid

  11. It's nice to see beige celebrated. I am always weary when I hear people moan about beige. I think in the hands of a boring person, beige can be dreary, but so can any colour. In the hands of a master, or at least a thoughtful decorator, beige has a wonderful graceful, architectural, peaceful quality to it. It is my favorite colour for decorating, other than white. And if it's good enough for Michael Smith...(I love that one photo of his you've included- that is my favorite room of his).

    I just got the Hadley-Parish book from the library and must admit that there isn't much beige in it. Those two were VERY brave with colour. : )
