“I like an eclectic mix of periods, of scale, of finishes, and a mix of textures. I think that creates not only beauty but a sense of ease. ” — interior designer Mark D. Sikes
It’s not much of a secret that I love blue, especially French blue, but I am not a stickler. Navy, baby blue, you name it, if it is blue or evokes the soothing tone of water, rain, or ocean, I tend to be drawn to it. The key it to balance it with white or other soft, light hues, at least for me. But the beauty of blue is that it is a versatile hue. Interior designer Mark D. Sikes’ Los Angeles home as featured recently on One King’s Lane is breath-taking. While the living room above doesn’t have much blue, as you continue to the tour below, you will begin to see blue everywhere, especially in the kitchen, bedroom and poolside. Fitting, non?
“I’m happy to be known for blue. There’s something optimistic and all-American about it. And I’ve never, ever had anyone come to me and say they don’t like blue.” — Mark D. Sikes
