Love of beauty and the desire to create it is a primal instinct of man. Eleanor McMillen Brown



Another one of Victoria's (my heroine from Love By Design) inspirations to become an interior designer is Eleanor McMillen Brown. Another pioneer in interior design she started her career in 1924 and started one of those most influential companies in design. She combined a sense of elegance along with business savvy. Here are some great quotes...

If you get it right the first time there's no need for change.
Eleanor McMillen Brown

To develop in taste, quality, and personality one is obliged to respect the past, accept the present, and look with enthusiasm toward the future.

For without the private world of retreat man becomes virtually an unbalanced creature.

Every room needs a touch of yellow.

We are often inclined to think of art in terms of pure decoration rather than as a vital part of our everyday lives.
