Alan Tanksley is a well known name in the interior design/architecture world. I like the mix of periods found in these particular pictures I grabbed from his body of work. These interiors look so rich and layered but not overwhelming. I like scanning these rooms trying to find my favorite pieces or trying to identify furniture and art that I am not familiar with. One design element that I can appreciate is the way the walls are treated. I am used to white walls but I have to say these walls ad a character and warmth that a plain white wall can not provide. Maybe I am just scared to put some color or texture on the walls.
