I recall two of his “lessons” almost every day. One is that a great decorator always seeks out the new and the overlooked, rather than returning to the tried and true. This is why Albert’s work always had so many original elements. The other is the value of taking calculated design risks. The returns, he suggested, far outweigh the costs of remedying any mistakes. I can hear him saying, “Decoration without risk leads to uninteresting rooms".
Take a cue from Albert Hadley and his impeccable designs, consider scale, volume and height when creating your space. Most importantly, don’t forget about the art (especially sculpture) which adds dimension, texture and interest to every room.
