TIME MANAGEMENT IS NECESSARY IN THE CREATIVE PROCESS. After the choice of finishing materials is made, immediately proceed to their purchase or order. Refuse to be overly optimistic about delivery times. It is much more reasonable to assume that various delays and delays of suppliers are the norm, and not an exception to the rule. This principle will save a lot of time and energy. But do not forget to find a place in advance to store all the ordered materials and things. CUSTOMER'S WISHES - DO NOT DISTURB, AND HELP. A professional decorator considers working with a difficult customer not as bad luck, but as an opportunity to increase his own efficiency. A demanding customer who is difficult to please stimulates the search for innovative solutions. SELECTING A PHOTO AND PICTURES IS A BUSINESS OF THE OWNERS, NOT A DECORATOR. In the choice of paintings and photographs that will become the decor for the room, the deep preferences of the owners of the house are fully manifested. Therefore, the decorator is better not to interfere in this process, but only to choose the appropriate frames or mat. If the owner of the house does not like photos or paintings, then it is better to leave the wall empty.
French Style is Dean Martin’s first LP for Reprise Records. Recorded during February 1962, it features French-themed popular songs and chansons arranged by Neal Hefti. Among them “C’est si bon,” which frequently appears on Dean Martin compilation albums; a rendition of Edith Piaf’s classic “La Vie en rose”; the title song from the MGM classic Gigi; and two classic Cole Porter tunes. Originally released as Reprise LP R(S)-6021 (‘S’ distinguishing the stereo pressing), the album’s tracks made their CD debut as part of the chronologically sequenced Bear Family box set Everybody Loves Somebody (BCD 16343). A subsequent two-on-one CD (together with Martin’s succeeding album Dino Latino) by Collectors’ Choice restored the original running order.
