Markham Roberts



I am in love with the work of Markham Roberts, whose mentor was the legendary decorator Mark Hampton. Markham’s designs completely appeals to my visual sensibilities. I may be a traditionalist at heart, but I also adore rooms that are fun, chic and unfussy. Markham has an uncanny ability to inject color into a room without going to extremes, giving each room its own unique characteristics. His rooms come across as chic, beautiful, modern and exceedingly comfortable—simply the best.

Very classic and stylish. I have the top image saved in my I Love files courtesy of Jennifer at Peak of Chic. I love the diagonal stripe wallpaper - it actually inspired me to have some cushions made for Black & Spiro earlier this year which were a broad pink and white stripe which we made up on the diagonal just like that! I love the bottom image too!

Very nice work. I love the way that he uses simple tortoise shell blinds in the most elegant of rooms. It tones everything down and makes the antiques more important.

I'm loving Markham Roberts now! Domino has a great article in the September issue where they follow him around for a day in the life of a decorator article. It's a really cute article.

This designer's work is amazing. Those diagonal stripes make such a dynamic statement without getting too crazy.

Thanks for introducing me to Markham Roberts, Ronda. I can definitely see the influence of Mark Hampton(who is one of my faves), but Markham puts his own fresh stamp on traditional style.

Habitually Chic I've just paid for my international subscription to Domino. I can't wait to catch up with all that's going on in the world that is Domino Magazine!

Brilliant Asylum I agree, the diagonal stripes are fantastic!

I agree Annechovie you can see the influence. Markham has certainly put his own unique twist on the look.
