Barklay Butera in DCOTA, Vero Beach Decorator, Vero Beach Florida

By
Home Stager with Bogna Interiors

 
          I  am back from DCOTA (Design Center Of The Americas) attending 2009 fall market.

          As always, elegant affair offering variety of lectures,presentations,book signings by visiting celebrity designers. I was specifically looking forward to meeting Barklay Butera, young ,very talented and accomplished designer, who was known in the beginning of his carrier as " Blue Boy" for his blue/white interiors .His rooms were lavishly accessorized ( meaning- overly). I have been watching his style change over the years.

           His topic was "Decorating In A New Economy". I might get some useful insite - I thought.

          Extensive display of his work was presented by Kravet showroom. Butera, as you know ,designed several GREAT collections of fabrics for Kravet.

          Somehow his presentation didn't relate very much to the promised topic. I decided, that it must be difficult for any designer, who works with multi million dollars budget clients. ( 26 million dollars hotel he did , for example)  to translate to New Economy limitations. O, Well.

          Above photo demonstrates one of Butera works, also an idea for staging.
