Legendary interior designer Albert Hadley is well known in the interior design community, and has designed for former Vice President Albert Gore, Diane Sawyer, Babe Paley, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and the Astor and Getty families. Hadley is known for his Georgian decorating, bringing in elements of neoclassicism, and all areas of design which are historic. He says without a basic knowledge of the history, design often fails. “If we cannot have connoisseurship in the young decorators, I would settle for a few history lessons. There is so little awareness of classical Greece, the neoclassical period, the eighteenth century, and the first half of the twentieth century. Without a foundation the house will crumble. What I am saying is not to be taken for nostalgia. Nothing is more exciting than the new. While you can build on the past, you can never really return to it”. Hadley has some strong words for the up and coming designers, “They’re all doing beige rooms,” he groans. Hadley wishes that young designers would take more time to educate themselves about Versailles and the twenties and “ancient history.” “It’s all about acquiring a richer vocabulary,” he tells New York Magazine
