KDHamptons Design Diary: Tricia Foley Lifestyle, Elegant Simplicity At Home
“White, orderly, clean, calm, comforting, serene, simple, inclusive, warm…designer Tricia Foley has found a way to communicate her observations, emotions, and thoughts in whispers, in kind of a restrained visual language,” shares actress Isabella Rossellini. Foley is best known for her timeless classical style, characterized by clean lines, natural materials, and vintage furnishings—from flea-market finds to fine antiques—and a serene palette of cream, ivory, and white. Her romantic Long Island, New York property—consisting of an eighteenth-century farmhouse and several outbuildings—serves as her personal laboratory, and reflects a style influenced by the simple tenets of Shaker design.
In her book, TRICIA FOLEY LIFE|STYLE: ELEGANT SIMPLICITY AT HOME, Foley addresses numerous aspects of home design, such as selecting the perfect shade of white; strategies for setting up a pantry, bringing collected objects together and creating artful tabletop decor, and much more. Foley rounds out this lifestyle manual with a treasure trove of useful ideas ranging from essential items for the guest room to seasonal entertaining ideas, recipes, and holiday décor. Her clients have included Ralph Lauren Home, Target, Waterworks, Pottery Barn, and Wedgwood. Beautifully photographed, this inspiring book is a must-have for design-savvy readers who desire a simple, but stylish, lifestyle.
