Camel Racing

We found a new sport for all of you to consider.  Move over horse back riding - hello, camel riding! Camel Racing is a huge sport in the Middle East, Australia, and Mongolia and is becoming increasingly popular in parts of England. It is similar to horse racing in that one can bet on each race and it is a growing tourist attraction.  The camels and the jockeys, wear colorful outfits in Arab style to add pizazz to the event. Aside from the racing, the camels are also on display all day so people can meet these interesting animals and learn more about them.  So, think about how you would dress your camel on race day and may the best camel win.

Black Interiors

Is black really dark and depressing?  The use of black in interior design can be sharp, cool and expressive. We love the use of black in these interiors...

Albert Hadley

Our entire industry is celebrating the great American interior designer, Albert Hadley (1921-2012).  He was born in Nashville, TN and was a graduate of the Parson School of Design in New York and Paris.  His long time design partner was Sister Parish, and they together made Parish-Hadley, Associates in 1962. Hadley won numerous design awards and worked with a variety of styles including modern, Victorian, and Georgian.  Some of Hadley's clients included Oscar de la Renta, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, The Gettys, The Astors, and Diane Sawyer.  Albert Hadley was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1986.  He will be missed by many.
