today i posted a beautiful yellow living room mark hampton had decorated on instagram/ see here. he was the best. the best american interior designer that has every lived. the rooms he decorated 30 years ago still look great today. he is someone i look up to greatly. 

i pulled out some of his books today to get inspired. love his interiors. he also did watercolors and he did them beautifully. here are some from his book legendary decorators of the twentieth century. he celebrate his peers and legendary designers with his art. i think it says a lot about him that he water colored other designers rooms. 

mark hampton was on my mind all day today, so i just had to share his artistic hand- it’s inspired and beautiful!

another book on mark hampton that is a must read and see is mark hampton: an american decorator, the title says it all.
