The Designs of Patrick Sutton And The Stories That Shaped Them
Interior Designer Patrick Sutton is recognized for creating luxurious and timeless spaces. He spent his childhood touring the world at the side of his father, a travel journalist, and mother, a fashion model. From the sunsets in Kenya to the seasides of the Amalfi Coast, Sutton develop a vivid visual knowledge of the world’s most beautiful spaces. Now based in Baltimore, Sutton uses these memories to craft designs closely related to his clients and their stories.
In his first book, STORIED INTERIORS, Sutton explores the relationship between the story we all carry in our mind of what our life might look like, the spaces we live in, and lifestyle we dream of. Sutton showcases sophisticated environments of ten residences and four hotels and restaurants, including the award-winning Sagamore Pendry Baltimore Hotel. Sutton provides a narrative for each chapter taking readers on a journey through his storytelling process accompanied by more than 300 color photographs. Throughout the book, Sutton shares with his readers how to create evocative interiors and spaces in their own home, by helping them Find, Craft, Tell and Share their Stories.
“Like my father, I have become a storyteller of sorts. I seek out the authentic spirit that inhabits a place and weave in the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of my clients to craft a tale that it uniquely theirs. Wherein my father used the printed word to transport his readers, I use color, form, texture and design to do the same.”
