Anthony Baratta: The Maximalist
He is decorating's irrepressible firebrand, mixing riotous whirls of pattern and kaleidoscopes of color that are happily,
brightly at home by the sea. Lime green canvas wallpaper, zebra-covered chairs—in Anthony Baratta's world, color is always
a welcome guest.
He works, he says, "on the coast of everyplace" but finds his sweet spot in tropical towns like Jupiter and Palm Beach, where grand homes allow him to update the Old Florida look with his own hot pink prints and nautical patterns.
Down the coast, on Venetian Island, Baratta's personal getaway acts as a laboratory for his relentlessly sunny hues. "It's always about an American summer in my head," he says. —M.C.
