E D I T O R I A L Much to my chagrin, Robert Frost, an icon of my youth and darling of the Kennedy White House, seems to have been a bit of a curmudgeon at home. Nevertheless, his poems—The Road Not Taken; Mending Wall—resonate, now, well over half a century since I first read them. On several occasions I have appropriated the titles of these poems in conversation with designers, encouraging them to take the road less traveled in design, the one often not taken, the one that stands outside the obvious. In other instances I have alluded to the mending wall by encouraging some designers not to over-renovate, and in other instances, to mend disagreements or to mesh design styles. In yet a third Frost poem, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, he writes: The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. Daily, I marvel at the long hours and substantial energy designers, decorators and architects expend on behalf of their clients in the quest for beauty. HYLAND HYLAND HYLAND Christopher Hyland
