On The Mark

With much anticipation surrounding his second book, we caught up with interior designer Mark D. Sikes and shopped the look of one of his endlessly beautiful projects.

Favorite part of the job: Concepting—curating inspiration, fabrics and furniture. Go-to pick-me-up: Iced tea—lots of it! Design philosophy: Make it beautiful. Top source of inspiration: Nature. What’s next? Book events, the Inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas and more collaborations. Also, I believe brown furniture is going to make a comeback. One can never have too many… Books! What does luxury mean to you? Surrounding yourself with the things you love.
