"I began realizing there is something to comfort and ease, to having a room where you can put a book and a drink down and it all blends into the landscape of the room. I started moving backward in time. Now my taste runs every which way. But what I really love is an extremely comfortable room, the kind you can spend hours and hours in. The English do that so well, especially in their country houses. You can create a happy mess in a room, and it just makes it feel more comfortable."
