This week, we are thrilled to welcome architect and interior designer David Easton to the Skirted Roundtable. Easton was a total surprise. I think all three of us thought we were in for a serious discussion on design, but Easton has an infectious sense of humor and likes to tease! A lot! He also likes to read and talk science fiction, which was rather surprising, to say the least. He is charming, sweet, nice and highly intelligent, yet always entertaining. We certainly were entertained.
The day we interviewed Easton, he had just come back from being on the Martha Stewart show - no pressure on us, no, not at all! He immediately put us at ease, and we totally forgot about riding on Martha's coattails. We spent some time talking about his new, beautifully photographed book "Timeless Elegance" which shows some of his more famous houses and some that have never been seen before. His two most famous houses, Albemarle House and Balderbrae are of course included.
The interview is highly enjoyable, easy to listen to, and thought-provoking all at once. Enjoy!
EDITED TO ADD: David Easton has kindly offered to send a sign copy of "Timeless Elegance" to one of our commenters, so leave a comment and you'll be entered to win the drawing for a signed book!
