Sheila Bridges: This designer not only has exquisite taste and an impeccable eye for pulling a room together, she rocks a bald head with grace and style. Sheila is best know for her “Harlem Toile” as she literally changed the faces of a toile fabric from classic themes of maids and maidens to girls jumping rope double dutch style and people dancing with a beat box nearby. She is a fan of what she call “furnishing forward” collecting pieces cheap or pricey, inherited or a yard sale and using them to furnish different rooms in different homes throughout your life. Great advice for the avid collector like myself. I’ve always picked up pieces I loved and found a place for them even if it is my garage for a year or two! Most things can be reworked with a little paint or fabric. She is also quoted as saying “Most things in life are beyond our control what you choose to put in your home is not.” I couldn’t agree more choose wisely.
