Designer Scott Salvator Sighting!
I volunteered as a docent at The Mansion In May this past Sunday. I needed to take my mind off of things as my friend that I posted about passed from us on Saturday. So on a chilly Sunday afternoon I got myself together and boarded the shuttle to the Mansion. I usually always head to the back seat, I think out of habit, but today I took the very first one. As I waited and watched all the passengers board, a handsome, very dapper gentleman with plum corduroys and plum driving moccasins entered the door. It was Scott Salvator! As luck would have it he sat right next to me. I was thrilled and a bit speechless, this man has been in the business for over 20 years and worked and was friends with the likes of Hadley/ Parish, Mario Buatta, Mark Hampton etc. He turned out to be most charming man and we talked design and and how we miss the classics of yesteryear. We reminisced over a time when Interior Design was a specialty and was respected as an art form. When the shuttle came to a stop he stood up and shook my hand and introduced himself, I told him no introduction needed I know who you are, and I hope we meet again soon! Here is a glimpse of a Scott's talent, I hope he continues to amaze us and I would love to see a book about his past 20 years experience, very soon ...hint ..hint!
