Gene Meyer: Then and Now

More from my scrapbooks and more from HG magazine.

These photos are of designer Gene Meyer's studio as featured in HG magazine, sometime in the '90s. The first picture above is of his incredible inspiration wall. He was quite famous then for his distinctive men's ties and, at the time of this shoot, his colorful silk scarves. In the photos above he has used them as curtains and to cover his furniture.

While not as white-hot as he was then, Mr. Meyer is still putting his great color combinations and love of pattern to use in wonderful ways.

A design he and his brother did for a friend's kitchen (with Benjamin Moore's Caribbean Blue Water and Kelly Green paints)
