About this title


From the Kennedy White House to homes for the Astors, Rockefellers, de la Rentas and Gettys, the American firm Parish Hadley has set a standard for interior design over the last 60 years. Using the homes of famous clients, this book provides a room-by-room exploration of Parish Hadley design.

From Booklist:

Unlike architecture, in which such practitioners as Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe are recognized by many people outside the field, the rarefied world of interior design has few popularly recognized icons. But the late Sister Parish and her partner Albert Hadley certainly fell into that category. Their impact both inside and outside the profession of decorating has been subtly powerful; their use of glazed chintzes, bright colors, handcrafts from patchwork quilts to rag rugs, comfortable upholstery, and other touches has influenced many of the country and casual trends today. Chronicled here are the lives and experiences of the two principals and their design philosophy. More important, though, are the approximately 150 color photographs, examples of their work and testimonials to their style. A special chapter documents Sister's 1961 work done on the Kennedy White House. Barbara Jacobs
