It doesn’t always take a decorating activist to apply a personal touch. A few clear directives to a knowledgeable interior designer can bring about the same effect.

“Charles Evans knew exactly what he wanted,” said Bennett-Portago, that company that designed his apartment back in  1969/1970.

“Mostly dark walls, because they make a flattering background for people, more comfort than clutter, enough change of pace so that no space would be like any other.”

Navy blue wool covering the walls was just a start. This deep blue dining room decor, when you added the blue ceramic tile floor and shiny round royal blue table, had an effect that was somehow both dramatic and calming.


A continuous, curving plant box made the square space round. Against the dark background, the green of the live plants seemed to have extra impact.

If you closed the fabric-covered sliding doors to the living room behind you, it could seem like you had dived into a different world.
