Frank Roop got his start in men's specialty stores. He used his experience there to propel him into the design world. His goal is to create couture spaces, where he uses custom furniture and unique objects in each space. In 2003, House Beautiful names him as one of the top 25 young designers in America.
What I notice most, besides his originality, is the lack of pattern. He manages to create a very layered, interesting look, with no pattern. His draperies are spectacular. And his lighting choices so unique.
Frank Roop's book was published in 2011. I think I need a copy!
What do you think of this look? The rooms don't look very kid friendly, but I am inspired to use more velvet, more solids, and plenty of gauzy fabrics on the windows.
