Spring 2019

In MILIEU, every story captures the look and feel, the mood and character, the style of a place - its milieu. The milieu that defines a great house or garden, the unique character of a design professional, the message conveyed in a thoughtful essay about home life, the creative strategies for accomplishing the look you want for your home - these are the elements of our magazine.

These patterns reflect those influences with a range of designs that share a particular flavor; my love of that period and of that remarkable group of artists is recalled very romantically in these designs.”When he was a young art student, Callaway became enthralled with the early twentieth-century painters he studied while living in Amsterdam and Paris, post-Cubist artists who continue even today to influence his design work.…
