4. Caveat Emptor
Buyer Beware. Whether you’re buying on your travels, shopping online or have hired an interior designer, it’s important to authenticate and understand the quality and provenance of each piece that you buy. If a price is too good to be true, be cautious. Antiques come with a certificate of authenticity, artwork can be authenticated, silver and gold pieces are stamped. In addition, if you are buying through a reputable auction house or online 3rd-party seller, they usually have vetted their sellers and may authenticate pieces. Don’t be afraid to ask or consult a specialist.
For example, Murano glass can be a good investment if you buy at the right price, or buy at auction. But be careful, the Chinese and the Indians also make ‘Murano’ glass – but it doesn’t have the official stamp or signature indicating it was made in Murano. Kevin has collected many pieces from Barovier and still has a 1930’s pair of gold lamps that he purchased in Soho in 1992, as well as vintage vases and bowls on his travels to Italy, or through auction houses that continue to increase in value.
5. Travel Provides #DesignInspiration
Your interiors should reflect your personality and style – especially if you choose to work with an interior designer. As an interior designer, Kevin Gray’s design philosophy is that his client’s space isn’t about him – it’s about them. His expertise is bringing out his client’s design personality so that Kevin can create a fresh, innovative design for every client.
Travel is important to great interior design, and Kevin was thrilled to return to Italy this summer for design inspiration for 2022 and beyond.
