The Saturday Evening Post


"Never had I seen such profusion, so much red!  
Red on the floor, red up the walls, and textures, textures, 
TEXTURES!  
Plaid on top of paisley, flowered chintz next to silk stripes, 
and silver, tortoise, ebony, conch, gilt - 
a magnificent explosion in the midst of a beige decade, 
a world in which the worst sin was to "clash". 
You knew the moment you looked at Ms. Vreeland's 
living room that you had seen the future.  
And, indeed, it eventually became 
the great cliche of New York decor."

-an excerpt from the Foreward to D.V.
by Diana Vreeland
