“The mix of traditional, modern, and vintage keeps [the table] looking fresh, and no table is complete without a simple yet beautiful flower arrangement.”

As part of the WILLIAMSBURG American Style panel at High Point Market in April 2019, Young encouraged others to inform their design eye by studying historic homes and their colorful rooms.

“I think Americans really had bold bright color...Some of these federal rooms have crazy color, they’re very imaginative, very playful. I think the American spirit is about taking risks, really going for it, and having those bold accents.”

“I love the provenance of both pieces: the china pattern being very formal and grand, as we might find in the Governor’s Palace, and the napkins being very humble and informal like we might find on a tavern table set for weeknight travelers.

I think design is best when it balances high and low — the combination creates alchemy!”

“I always start with storytelling, and I think the mix is magic, there’s magic in the mix... If I’m using a dramatic historic piece that’s got a lot of gravitas, I feel like the fabrics have to be bold. I feel like that guides you.”
