Baldwin describes the apartment he designed for Cole Porter in the Waldorf Towers as the most outstanding of his accomplishments. In the middle of the 20th century, Baldwin championed an American sensibility in decoration. The lessons he shares—in chapters such as “How to be an expert with pattern” and “What to make of a wall”—are as relevant today as they were then.
