That is the best – to laugh with someone because you both think the same things are funny.
Gloria Vanderbilt

It is the personality of the mistress that the home expresses. Men are forever guests in our homes, no matter how much happiness they may find there.
Elsie de Wolfe

If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
William Morris

Fellowship is heaven, and lack of fellowship is hell; fellowship is life, and lack of fellowship is death; and the deeds that ye do upon the earth, it is for fellowship’s sake that ye do them.
William Morris

It’s the kind of clothes that mothers and daughters can wear, in terms of concept, … It’s not about age. It’s about taste, and it’s about lifestyle. I believe women of all ages can wear anything.
Ralph Lauren

If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.
Marc Chagall

Simplicity of life, even the barest, is not a misery, but the very foundation of refinement; a sanded floor and whitewashed walls and the green trees, and flowery meads, and living waters outside.

Marc Chagall

Yves Saint Laurent

The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life.
William Morris

A designer who is not also a couturier, who hasn’t learned the most refined mysteries of physically creating his models, is like a sculptor who gives his drawings to another man, an artisan, to accomplish.
Yves Saint Laurent
