Rose said in a recent interview when asked about the number one influencing factor in his success, "Spending several summers in Santa Fe looking at size, color, and texture, old partnered with new, I knew it could work across the spectrum of great decorating, was fresh and something not offered in the South, where I was born.Today's young progressives in the Atlanta area are discriminating in taste and are enveloping the marriage of old and new with futuristic.
