About Markham Roberts

Called "a master of timeless American style" by Vogue, Markham Roberts has earned the reputation as one of the top decorators of his generation. He and his work have been featured in Architectural Digest, Domino, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, Southern Accents, Town & Country, Veranda and The New York Times. He has been named to the AD100, Architectural Digest's prestigious list of the top 100 interior designers and architects in the world, since 2014.

Known for his creativity and ability to work in a wide variety of styles, Mr. Roberts adeptly interprets his clients' needs in a seamless way that reflects their style. His widely praised monograph, "Decorating: The Way I See It," showcases his refreshing approach to decorating.

In the words of noted editor Senga Mortimer, "There is a distinct refinement that runs through all of his work and is, indeed, emblematic of his personality ... Markham, with his unflinching ease, his assured eye, his natural understanding of how a house should function, and his total lack of pretense, creates rooms that are timeless."

Questions and Answers

Q: "What's the best advice you've ever received?"

A: "Be flexible. It isn't your house; it's your client's."

Q: "What's one design rule you love to break?

A: "I don't really think of decorating in terms like that. I would say, however, that to break rules in general, one has to know them first, whatever they may be."

Q: "What's the easiest way to transform a room?"

A: "Push stuff around and try something different."

Q: "No room is complete without __________?"

A: "... someone to enjoy it."

Q: "What's your most desired superpower?"

A: "The ability to fly. Though I suppose it would be more useful to have the ability to cut through the $#@% in life, or to be able to read people's intentions."

"As a decorator, it is important to me to help clients find their specific vision and to focus it, or perhaps nudge it when necessary. I want projects to reflect the clients themselves, and if I can make that reflection a little more flattering, then great."
