Design Legend: Billy Baldwin

Be faithful to your own taste because nothing you really like is ever out of style
— William Baldwin

William Baldwin Jr., also known as Billy Baldwin, was a New York interior decorator, characterized as the 'Dean of Interior Decorators'. Baldwin's work was neat, tidy, polished, and above all American. Baldwin knew how to mix the old and new flawlessly and he always incorporated furniture pieces that his client already owned. He firmly believed that a decorator's job was to create luxurious comfort that suited his client's personality. Baldwin's clients included Diana Vreeland, Cole Porter, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Paul Mellons. 

Baldwin's bold and beautiful aesthetic remains relevant through each decade, inspiring all of us to choose quality, comfort, and to always keep in mind our own style above everything else.
