“I always take my inspiration from nature, and fall is my favorite season. The horsehair wallcovering, Glant fabric, the patina of warm metals, leather, and wood—all glow richly like autumn foliage. After summer’s busy travels, now is the time to settle in at home and, of course, warm up with a fine Scotch.”
