“My mother was a neurotic, and she hated dust–I think of dust as a protective coating for my furniture! If you lit a cigarette, she’d start cleaning out the already-clean ashtrays. She would vacuum herself out of the house. My father, who was a musician, would often come home late, and she could tell whether he was there or not by the footprints in the carpet.”

-Interior decorator and “prince of chintz” Mario Buatta in the New York Observer
